The Brightcave Alliance is a collection of Dwarven mines and castles that have banded together for mutual protection. This nation is a frequent target of the Imeng Empire. The alliance has no formal enemies, as dwarves prefer honest work over war. Most, but not all, mines and settlements in this alliance are friendly to foreigners but not overly hospitable.
The Brightcave Alliance has an economy based entirely off of precious objects retrieved from the earth. The alliance is the chief retailer of refined gold, platinum, iron, bronze, and silver. The alliance is also responsible for providing continent#1’s supply of gemstones. The alliance nation has very little infrastructure that isn’t related to mining the earth- rather they trade extensively with other factions in order to get basic needs fulfilled such as livestock and fabrics.
