Vordric Dun miner's were a rough-and-tumble lot that lived hard lives. As a group, they competed with the miners of Laviguer for the resources located deep beneath the Earthspurs. They brought significant wealth to the Realm of the Sword and the Wand in the form of valuable gems, ore and minerals, among them the rare specimen known as bloodstone, they excavated from their mines.
The town was well-patrolled by the Warswords of Impiltur. While they enforced the realm's "daggerbond", which forbade the open baring of weapons upon an individual's person, they afforded the hard-working citizens significant liberties in their daily life.
