The Goragar are a hearty mountain delving race. They are famous for their fine craftsmanship of weapons and metal worked goods. Though they revel in ale and the merriment of drinking songs, their people as a whole have fallen on hard times. Numerous battles with greenskins and their own evil brethren the Shernagar and Durrogar, have left them a scattered and broken people. Many dwarves sing songs of a day when the dwarven nation will rise up again as one and reclaim it past glory.
