Bodekgrim (which means “Ancient and Eternal Citadel” in Dwarven) is the capital of the Iron Mountain dwarf clans. Unlike the humans inhabiting the plains, the dwarves were able to fight off the orcs when they invaded. After being bloodied several times, the orcs decided to just starve the dwarves out. Unfortunately for them, there are several clandestine cave exits in the bluffs overlooking the northwestern shore of Lake Depra. In better days these exits allowed for easy trade with Old Allence; now the dwarves send the boats down the Alenka instead of east to Old Allence. This clandestine boat trade provides enough supplies for the dwarves to survive, but only because they are a very disciplined society. Their leaders, King Dolim and High Priestess Bofia, have also instituted a strict program of unarmed combat training that all members of the clan who travel outside the fortified citadel must complete.
