Night Wolf: The Hidden Rose
A colony of dwarves had excavated under the water passage between and connected the two islands of Sarafil and Alaron. Dwarvenhome was exactly as the name suggests. There used to live many a dwarf there before the great war. During the peaceful years merchants would pay tolls to pass through and rest in the tunnel inns as it was a very wealthy area. Dwarves are also known to dig further even after a great structure is complete so naturally they also found rare gems deep in the earth. The great riches and trade made many of the dwarven families very powerful. Dwarvenhome was a burgeoning power just as the great war occurred.
When the war came however Dwarvenhome became a lost contact. When messengers and travelers ventured in they were never heard from again. Now no army dares to enter it as it is said to hold the highly trained and never tested dwarven military awaiting a weakened state to conquer. Highly paid strategists were rumored to have uncovered secret fighting tactics. Thus no mortal man goes to learn first hand how well those methods ring true.
