The Dwarven Assembly
Ruling body of Kind dur Tera, located in the capital Graj dur Thorzen. The Assembly allows any dwarf who has been proven an adult member of his family to participate. Each family elects a single representative to serve term as a permanent voter in the Assembly. These representatives elect the Dwarf King, who presides over the assembly until his death.
Before The Great Marring, each clan also selected a representative that formed the high council of the Assembly. Given the near extinction of all but two of the clans, the Assembly has decided to refrain from a reformation of the high council until the clans can sufficiently rebuild. The heads of the clans still hold much sway in the Assembly, and are always granted to speak before the assembly when their need demands it.
