Highforge Family Mines

Highforge Family Mines
Highforge
The Highforge Family Mines are a series of mines, tunnels and caves located underground north of the city of Highforge. Even when they originally have exits to the surface, they are currently only connected to the city via underground tunnels.

They were originally mined by the gnome and dwarven clans that founded the city many years ago and the materials used to build the first buildings and wall. Less than half the original of the “family mines” are still in working conditions but the rest have been converted into housing, small craft shops, diners and small stores. There is even a warehouse and a giant lizard habitat. The families living in the “family mines” are more traditional with fewer non-dwarves than the city and a very low tolerance for outsiders.

Some of the dwarves in the Family Mines are: Abek Foodtaster (the owner and cook of " The Broken Shovel " ), Balian Healtouch (the local gnome healer), Corlin Bedcrafter (the owner of a small holstery for visitors and single dwarves called " Gnome Divorce " ) and Damif Pickbreaker (a miner worker leader). One of the most important leaders of the community is Master Kudok Wallknocker, who owns and manages the biggest area that is still been mined. One of his workers is a gnome named Emogi Brokenpike. In the same area he has his big home where he lives with his family of nine. Weradis Redmenta Reddagger has a medium sized Lizard Farm just near Kudok Wallknocker’s holdings.
