Masks of the Great One
The fort has stone walls containing four longhouses arranged in a square. The king lives in the tallest of these longhouses.
Each year the clans hold a meeting, called a thing outside the fort. At this time clans attempt to resolve disputes and new laws are passed. The dwarven king presides over the law-making and the lawspeaker arbitrates disputes. Both the king and lawspeaker are elected for life. If either has died, the thing is when the new ones are elected.
