World of Gaus
The Thaig of Azoh is the most technologically advanced of the cities and was the third to rise. It powers itself on the wind and the sun and moves gracefully enough to leave nary a trace of its travels. Though it is the first to mock Iban for its old ways, it is also the first to be scolded for its less than progressive views. All non-dwarvan inhabitants are segregated to certain sections of the city and hold less legal protection than dwarvan citizens. Citizens of other races can still study at its schools, but are unable to hold faculty positions. The College of Azoh is one of the most academically respected institutions in the world and is the only place within Azoh where a non-dwarf can earn full citizenship: they are bestowed the title “tall one”, a great honor which is unfortunately mocked as merely being “legally dwarvan”. Even without such prestige, graduates of the school often return to their home country to great accolades and plentiful opportunity; many of the world’s wealthiest non-nobles themselves are graduates. This leads to thousands of applications from eager young minds whenever Azoh travels through a new country and justifies their heavy tariffs in the markets to any visitors. Azoh moves slowly, but steadily — they say it stops at most twice a year, but travels slowly enough to allow plenty of time for trade and enrollment. It typically takes two weeks for it to pass over a single city.
Elitist Dwarven supremacists trying to unify the Dwarves under the authority of a king. The other cities ain’t into that shit.
