In The Aftermath
The dwarves of the Silvershield hold were one of the few dwarven holds not to seal themselves into thier underground kingdoms during The rising. As such they fought bravely alongside the other races. But they suffered great losses and were directly attacked by the undead while thier army was away fighting. This decimated the population of this once proud and crowded hold. The Silvershield still exists today but it is a shadow of its former glory. Its once crowded squares now stand silent. Its grand chapel to Moradian is now only sparesly attended and its halls echo with the footsteps of now few citizens as they go about thier business in thier now largely empty subterrenian city.
