Forge of Moradin
This is the ruling council of the city state of Hammer Rock. This is a pseudo religious organisation which is mainly controlled by the temple of Moradin. The council is made up of 8 members. The head of the council is always the High Priest of Moradin and at least three other members are high ranking officials of the temple of Moradin. All members of the council are invited by the King, though in most cases the King will allow the High Priest to select the best candidates from the temple while the King will choose the other 4 members from the noble houses. This is commonly the case but it is not unheard of that an artisan of low birth might be selected if his craftsmanship is seen to be exceptional. It is considered that he has been blessed by Moradin even with the deficiency of his low birth.
