Ruins of the Old Empire
The dwarfs were the second race known to inhabit Ammunar, and the first to reach it by following the byways between dimensions. They must have co-existed with the native elves for a while, building their homes under the mountains and gathering their strength, but there are no elven records left from that time and the dwarfs refuse to discuss it.
Suffice to say that they conquered Ammunar’s natives, taking many of them as slaves and driving the rest into the deep forests where they remain today. For 3000 years Deurrack—the Shadow Kingdom—was the power in Ammunar, their unlit fortresses and complexes ramifying for a time before the slow, mysterious decline of their race began.
