The Dwarf King is the ruler of the dwarves and all the “civilized” places underneath the ground. He has treaties with the Emperor and the Elf Queen, although relations with the elves always seem to be a bit strained. The Dwarf King makes his home in the great mountain of Forge and is generally not seen above ground. It is generally known that he likes to lay claim to anything made from the earth, which is pretty much everything—nearly all precious items in the world, according to the Dwarf King, are really the rightful property of the dwarves. Of course, there’s no real way for him (or anyone else) to enforce this.
