The Age of Reason
“We were once a proud people. Never, in all our history, have Dwarvenkind been slaves. However, now we are slaves to our own kind. Those who own the factories treat the rest of us, their own kin, as if we were lesser beings, not worthy of their attention. In Karth, our ancient homeland, the rich only get richer, and the poor only get poorer. That is why we exist. We, the Grey Beards, work to bring equality back to our kind, so that once again all dwarves may stand tall, free of the shackles of the wealthy.”
Treated as criminals in the Karth Province, but well respected in most of the rest of the Empire, the Grey Beards are a mercenary company of mostly Dwarves, though they are not overly selective of favoritive in their recruiting. They seek to bring freedom the their kin who are of the lower classes in Karth, and they work hard to protect the people of Karth when the local militia do nothing.
Their leader, Belethar, is a wanted criminal in the Karth province, and is currently in hiding in Cana.
