Steam, Bronze, and Fire
The Darkspawn Hordes live in the ever-dark caverns and tunnels of the Underdark. They have very few larger established cities, due to their tendency toward savagery, and are ruled by the females of the society. The females are separated into two groups, the breeders, and the High Priestesses. The breeders are filthy, monstrous, fat, and ugly. The sole purpose of their existence is to fuel the horde with freshly born Darkspawn. The High Priestesses are the most cunning and vengeful of their race. They exist to direct the horde and to interpret the will of Niro, their Dark god of Shadows and Secrets. There are many different clans that make up the Darkspawn Horde, each with their own High Priestess Matriarch. In large enough caverns, Clans settle and establish small cities with the Priestess’ temple at its center. The most powerful clans tend to be the ones that have established themselves in the largest, most defensible caverns that are close to the surface and their food supply. Aggression between the clans is not unheard of, though they are more preoccupied with fighting the monsters of the Underdark and the surface dwellers.
