Duros is the dwarven nation lying in the eastern region of Camaros, mostly dwelling within the Dyrodos mountains.
Over history, it has been monarchical and ruled fairly over, but then Emperor Papel took over after the king was murdered. He attempted a take over on the entire country of Camaros but was stopped by a group of adventurers known to the pubic as the Haphazards.
One of the heroes, an elven witch named Sariel, anointed herself as Empress and ruled during some of the roughest years in Duros’s history, after Kestheus attempted to take over, but was defeated by Sariel’s army. She ruled until she passed from the Elven Plague in 1458.
After Sariel’s death, another member of the Haphazards and council member of Duros, a half-elf named Shiori, became the next Emperor and ruled for 12 years until he passed from old age, passing on the Empire to another of the group, a shade who had dissapeared for 90 years named Whisper.
