The city in the mountains
Fiòrderik was founded on the slopes of Mount Smaragd, the highest peak of the Kélamnkor region. Its central position has meant that over the years it became the logistics centre of air travel and the seat of the High Council, the most important political body of the dwarf society.

Overturned hulls
The architecture of the Plains dwarves is closely linked to the shipyards and they share many common elements: the roofs are overturned hulls, the bridges become large arcades and the masts are supporting main columns or watchtowers.

Trade and mail
The hawks are the only living beings able to cross the high mountain chain that separates Norigia from Fiòrderik. The Plains dwarves have become masters in the ancient art of falconry thanks to which they keep active a service of mail and trade of small objects with their cousins of the mountains.
The places of falconry
The young hawks are trained in special buildings located near the highest cliffs. When they become more experienced and strong enough to cope with longer journeys, they are transferred to outposts in the mountains where they can nest.

Travelling houses
The indonuim wagons are real travelling dwellings. They are efficient on the go and offer all the comforts: beds, a small library, a wood stove and an equipped kitchen. They are means that adapt to any terrain and can turn into rafts to ford rivers and perform small stretches via water.

Commercial centre
It is the capital of the Realm of Men. It has no ancient roots, but it was built with the intention of enhancing the commercial heart of the Peopled Lands. Being founded in times of peace it does not have an important defensive system, but it is built on the three levels of a system of lakes and waterfalls.
The city on the waterfalls
The city was built on a project related to the particular conformation of the territory. Large stone bridges connect the three levels of the city and unite the ports, residential areas and royal buildings. High waterfalls roam among the white walls of the imposing and elegant buildings.
