Knights of the Longbox
Few can survive a harsh life along the Dragon Spine Mountains along the northern border of The Kingdom of Ulthar and fewer still decide to make a home in the harsh environment. Many of those survivors call Bahnd home. A resilient city-state of warriors and isolationists, the residents of Bahnd saw devastation in the The Orc Wars but have bounced back. The fight for survival doesn’t end when the war does.
Population: Approximately 10,000 (60% human, 20% dwarf, 20% other)
Economy: Predominantly mining and crafting. Many of the finest weapons and armor in Ulthar come courtesy of the craftsman of Bahnd.
Government: A state of isolationists and survivalists doesn’t lend itself well to recognizing a sole leader but most view Karrak Clanghorn as the spiritual ruler of Bahnd. A dwarf who’s called the community home long before Bahnd was officially named, Clanghorn has a reputation for giving and selflessness that borders on saintliness and he’s well loved, despite not holding any official leadership position.
