House Frosthammer is a noble yet savage clan of dwarves watched over by their great warrior lord Varagon Frosthammer. These hardy dwarves live in relative peace far to the north, beyond The High Peaks past The Sea of Sorrows. Their mountain stronghold of Chillburrow is not easy to reach, and because of the cold climate here, the Frosthammer dwarves rarely see incursions of any ghastly sort.
Frosthammer dwarves have thick skin and wiry hair and beards. They make fine craftsmen, warriors, gladiators, and berserkers, and they love drink and songs of battle. Many women of this clan become Dwarven Shieldmaidens. These warrior folk often serve in Frosthammer’s great army and many depart to become adventurers in search of treasure and glory.
