The Krallic Holds
The largest dwarven realm on the continent of Ellenda, the Krallic Holds are a series of fourteen mountain kingdoms. Each kingdom has its own ruler and they meet annually to discuss the affairs of the Holds. The Holds are a constant battlefield with the orcs of the Blackened Plains to the North and currently only half of the original holds are in possession of the dwarves. As a result, the larger Holds will often house at least one king in exile.
