Kalruuth Mountains

The One met death, but we stand with breath.   Their heart lives on, as we are One.
— From the story of the Heart of the Mountain
  The Kalruuth Mountains is home to the Kalruuthians who mostly reside in Duun'Kalruuth, the dwarvenkind mountainhome. The mountain range has 3 major mountain peeks, which are positioned beside each other in a triangle. Each peek is also the same height, roughly towering at 7,000 m (~23,000 ft).  

Myth

The Kalruuthian slammed his fist on the table. His face red with rage, "how dare you!"   "But it is true," the Tarian Priest explains, "all of us are the children of Our Mother, who blesses us with her-"   Suddenly the table is tilted to one side, as it crashed down. The drinks on the floor, though mostly soaked into the priest's robes. The door is slammed and the Kalruuthian had disappeared, though his anger echoes from the street.
Many Kalruuthians believe this mountain range is the resting place of a fallen Titan, Kalruuth. The circumstances of Kalruuth's death is a tale told through generations. It is said the red glowing rock in the core of the mountains is the heart of Kalruuth. Even though the Titan's body is now a mountain, their heart still contains their Soul and it's Essence created every Kalruuthian. However, Taria's Order disagrees with this, as they believe every Atharian is a child of Taria; Goddess of Creation. Kalruuthians also believe that who they call the One will rise again when death returns.

The Tale of the Fall of Kalruuth

Millienia ago, when the world was larger and gods roamed the lands; there was nothing but war. Giants and Titans stood and defended Atharia against the hordes of deathly devils and demons of hatred. Great power was utilised from both sides, which caused a rift to form.   Cracks of aether and astral holes ripped through forests, mountains and even oceans. What was once one, the whole world exploded into fragments of smaller worlds; Brosita and Atharia together flung in the Cosmic sea like other worlds.   Dying from their injuries, Kalruuth used their essence, the power of their soul to create the future of Brostia; Kalruuthians they called themselves.
