In particular, Kalruuthians boast that their bacon is the best bacon.

Effects Underground

A common trait for those who dwell within Mountainhomes is their skin is often pale, but Kalruuthian's skin complexion is paler than most. Many mountainhomes are based along the edge of mountains so their citizens can enjoy time in the sun. However, Duun'Kalruuth is the only mountainhome which is fully submerged within a mountain. Kalruuthians will need to trek through the various Ancient Dwarven Tunnels to bask in the glorious Atharian sunshine.
