The Burwin are an isolated race of dwarves. They live in grand, stone fortresses built into the sides of the mountains that dot Agerrin. They are generally untrusting of outsiders, and very few are permitted to enter any further than the courtyard of a fortress.
The Burwin call their mountain-side fortresses “Mountain Homes.” Each mountain home is ruled by an unmarried dwarf of great martial skill. They are appointed by the “Council of Fathers,” which are all of the Clan fathers who call the fortress their Clan Home. The lord is titled “Wise Axe” and given a crown.
