Borost:Dwaerkar Chiefdom

From Bestiary of the Hypogriph

The Dwaerkar Chiefdom was a political organization of the Dwaerkar that spanned the Dwaerkar-controlled regions of Borost. Its capital was Ouwestad, and it was briefly controlled by Clan Ouwegund and then by Clan Ÿphergund.

The Dwaerkar Chiefdom began on Vennern of the year +0, when the Dwaerkar first landed in Borost. Based around Ouwestad, the Chiefdom slowly grew in mastery and power until the eruption of Ÿphergund's War in +431. The Dwaerkar Chiefdom, pitted against Elven Borost, fought with unity until the death of Molgart Ÿphergund in +453, at which point the Dwaerkar Chiefdom fragmented and ceased to exist.

Today, the Dwaerkar-controlled regions of Borost are arranged into a disparate set of Dwaerkar freeholds, which are independent of each other.


The chiefdom was autocratic in nature, with the great Chief governing by royal decree. However, his power was regulated by the Moot of Ouwestad, a council of noblemen of the clans, who advised and deliberated with the Chief on matters of importance.
