Way of Life
Hunters and Gatherers
Stoic, Dogmatic, Honorable
The Duerkhar belong to the original inhabitants of Azuhl. Once they followed the great Koloth herds in the plains as nomadic hunters. But as the predatory Mohyar raided the islands with their ships, the Duerkhar retreated into the hostile environment of the great mountain ranges.
Untouched and almost forgotten, the Duerkhar established a new life there. The harsh environment formed the slender-statured people into an efficient and hardened community.
The Council of Elders has decided since that time on the fate of each individual. And a strict code of honor assigns every member a permanent place in the community. There was little room for individuality and even less room for missteps. The welfare of each Clan and its survival were the daily focus of the Duerkhar.
But when the Curse devastated the lowlands of Azuhl and caused the oceans to freeze, the Council of Elders decided to give up the isolation of their mountains, since Chaos threatened to destroy the livelihood of their people once and for all.
