It’s time to grab your axe and head north!
Life is generally grim for youngest children of Dwarven families. Dwarven inheritance and privilege pass only to the oldest children, with the younger ones left to fend for themselves in Dwarven society. In many cultures this may have led to intense rivalry, with siblings fighting against siblings, but that is not the Dwarven way.
Young Dwarves, with no chance of inheriting their family’s wealth, will take an axe and go seeking a glorious death in battle - it’s seen as preferable to a life of poverty, and if by a miracle one survives, then wealth and fame is theirs for the taking.
The northern tribesmen, or Northrenders as they prefer to be known, are a hardy race of folk who live near the coasts of Stormheim.
They are dour and taciturn, but also mighty warriors. Many folk believe there is more than a little Dwarven blood in their heritage.
