Vonbolrak is a dwarven nation in the north of Jodran, covering most of the Azgathshar range. While welcoming to other mountain peoples, the country’s official apparatuses remain solely comprised of dwarves. Significant minorities include oreads, goliaths, gnomes, and humans. The capital is Kilkargen, a mountain stronghold on the north side of the mountains, approximately halfway between the eastern and western ends, honeycombed into the highest mountain, Shallazbelel.
Established in 2003PP by the eight major clans in the wake of the First Necromancer War, Vonbolrak is the second oldest still extant nation on Ytria (predated by both Raj’uliana, now split into Ulcana and Narajiana, and Orath). Ruled by a council of eight, with one representative from each of the eight major clans, with one voted to the position of rasuh-hamr (loosely translating to “high helm”), who holds two votes in case of a four-four split, for a span of ten years.
