The Iron Crusade
The realm of the Silexians is completely situated in the eastern Montin Mountains. The nation is all but impenetrable. There has yet to be a siege to bore through the Dwarven mountains. The Silexian nation is almost solely given to the Dwarves. If a member of another race is given citizenship it is a truly rare day indeed. The Silexians are known for their crafting. A Legisan master blacksmith, has trouble keeping up with even the Silexian apprentices.
There have only been a few times in history where other than Dwarves have populated the Montin Mountains. They were once very strong in their connection with the arcane arts, resulting in The Rein Of Tyrith. After many long years rule once again returned to the rightful monarchy and measures have been made to stifle magic from returning to power within their mountains.
Becuase of the the Rein Of Tyrith members of the Silexian realm are against magic and any of it’s form if the same effect can be made by physical means. They still understand the power of Magic, but keep their distance from all practitioners. Even the strongest clerics of Silex are refused any sort of political power, in fear of repeating their horrid past.
