Arendort Settlement in Daimon | World Anvil



85% Dwarves
10% Gnomes
5% other races


A council controls the citadel formed by representatives of the major entities within. The council is in labor about 50 years and then is changed, the same entities vote. This period enters its 26 year and the mining guildhall controls the military and the trading, the church of death the law in the city and the diplomacy with the outside world, the artisans guild the commece, the church of the earth the education, the school of engineering the development and safety and finally the church of nature the health. The rune writting school and one eccentric gnome have other positions in the council.

Code of law

(by the church of death)

Despite the name the church of death is about the life because this cannot be appreciated nor valued without death. The church has some signature rituals that the god grant to his disciples called "marks", this marks has several effect on the targets depending on the type of mark:
  • Death: The target is assaulted every night with visions of their own death more than a phrofetic vision is a nightmare. The target is unable to end his own life.
  • Prision: The target has a fobia to open spaces.
  • Empathy: The target has the same feelings of another sentien being. The church use this to emulate the feelings of the victims.The target is unable to end his own life.
  • Haunted: The target develops an aura of dim light that can be seen even in daylight as a warning to others.
  1. Murder/Attempt to murder/conspiracy to murder: Mark: Death and life sentence to work in the mines.
  2. Kidnapping/rape: Mark: Empathy. Long sentence to work in the mines.
  3. Theft/Extortion: Mark: Haunted. Pay of damage. Variable imprisonment.
  4. Corruption/Blasphemy(a severe insult to a god or the church): Mark: Prision. Removed from the charge and benefit in the politics or church if any. A fine.


The citadel is merged with a mountaint in a great mountain range, this makes a natural defense corridor and wall to the city, moreover all the doors and entrance are created with steel. The city has several defensive steel towers in the perimeter and above some mountains, they have an underwater exit to make an surprise assault or as a last escape route.

Industry & Trade

Several years now this city is the primary provider of steel manufactured goods.

Weapons and armor for the minotaurs.
Agricultural tools for the humans
Mechanical pieces of all sorts for gnomes.
Recently some human settlements are purchasing more gold made jewelry and crafts.


The citadel is "carved" in the mountain. The dwarves have several industries here to function but the more exploited are the mining and steel working.
The mining industry exploits the vast deposits of minerals the mountains have: Iron, coal, gold and diamonds are the primal minerals.
Then the craftsman enter in scene: Steel working, diamond cutting, gold crafting, weapon and armor crafting, engineering guild among others.

The citadel is better know by his surname, the steel citadel, than his dwarven name because the obvious steel infrastructure not only in the steel trading (weapons, armors, carruages, cages, bars, tools) but his steel buildings and steeled streets.

This was a cool city. One of my first thoughts upon reading this is: how are they feeding 24. 000 people in this mountain city? Goats sure do not breed or grow that fast. Perhaps it'd be worth adding something in the sidebar about how does the city provision enough food for its inhabitants, or perhaps explaining what the "food seat" does.   I think in the "Code of Law" you should order the marks in the same order you placed the crimes/punishment. It just makes for easier reading.

Don't forget that you can add what kind of feedback you are looking for, under Preference in the edit page for the article. :)   This is an article that could really benefit from an overview paragraph or two at the very beginning. Give the reader an idea of what it is they are about to get into and sort of a summary of the high level points. Most casual readers will decide whether or not to continue reading at the very start of your article, so it is good to have a good and strong opening that helps reel 'em in.  

one excentric gnome have other positions in the council.
appreciated nor valorated without death.
  Valorated, do you mean valued or venerated?

It sounds like you've got good foundation to go further with this article in the future. There are a couple of things I'd like to address to help you with this.   First, tooltips are very useful whenever you state names of people, places, or objects without really diving into their general information. For instance, you give some info on the church of death but not the church of the earth, so I'm left knowing some of this article's needed details but not all of it. Perhaps you could also add in their info to the sidebar, because you still have a lot of room you can fill there.   Other suggestions would be proofreading and grammar corrections. Qurilion above noted a lot of these, but there are a couple spots where I'm noticing spelling errors and other kinds. An example, your last sentence you say, "Goats live in the mountains and are breed to food." I assume you're saying they act as Arendort's food source, so I'd recommend instead changing it to, "Goats live in the mountains and are bred as a the city's main food source."   Another example is in the first paragraph when you're naming all the churches of the city. For one, you say, "the church of the earth the education." You should add a comma between the church and its general duty to the city. Also add a period in the paragraph, because it's quite a run-on sentence when you think about it.   Hope these were helpful! Have a great summer camp!     Notes: Tooltips. Church of death? Grammar corrections.

Hello Royalfa.   I think some others mentionned the grammar. For myself i think the first paragraph was a bit confusions to read as long sentences what church does what. I think the sidebar council explains it with a better format for myself.   I'd be curious to know more about the sole gnome having a seat + maybe the relationships between other churches if some have different agendas.   Happy SummerCamp !
