What happened to the Mountain Clans of Nevendaar?

The Mountain Clans (Dwarfs) 

The world of Nevendaar is populated by various fascinating races including the Undead Hordes, the forces of the Empire, the Elven Alliance and the Legion of the Damned which all have their appearances in Disciples: Liberation 

But what happened to the Mountain Clans, you might ask now? We would like to go into more detail about where the mountain clans have gone.

The mountain clans are not part of Disciples: Liberation, and we want to give you some insights on this decision and we’d like to elaborate how the team for Disciples: Liberation has interpreted the past events. 

To cut a long story short, the current whereabouts of the dwarves – or whether any exist at all – is unknown. All that is left of them – at least this is what it currently seems – are the bones in old dwarven ruins.  

After Wotan was murdered by Mortis, the dwarves fought for their lives. One by one they fell and their remains were awakened to fight alongside Mortis. She corrupted their flesh and turned them into bone golems and other, even more hideous forms.  

But as is evident in the region of Wotan’s tomb, Wotan’s essence lives on. Nevendaar is only one plane of many, and an image of Wotan remains at least in the Urdva – the Plane of Slights.  

So, if the god could avoid true and final death, why not his people?  

Although most believe that the dwarven clans are extinct, there are rumours. The dwarves have locked the gates to the smaller fortresses, but some say dilapidated, broken gates have been found within. Without being bound by their allegiance to a savage and unpredictable god, they may have used these gates to escape. To the north, beyond the barbarian lands, they would be safe. They could live in seclusion, at peace, free from the whims of the lesser gods.  

Some even claim to have sighted dwarves on their expeditions to the north. Although anyone making such claims is usually laughed off as crazy or drunk or both.
