Kingdom of Grimbardun in pictures | Splinterlands Praetoria in Pictures
Welcome to another edition of "Praetoria in Pictures", this time focusing on the Kingdom of Grimbardun as described in the latest @splinterlands post. Note that these visualizations are achieved entirely in MidJourney and are therefore not "official" visual representations of the game or lore. However they do serve to bring to life the vivid descriptions provided by @nateaguila and the amazing team at Splinterlands. Without further ado, let's get into it.
Carved into the imposing heart of the Central Fire’s northern Agniavas, the Kingdom of Grimbardun is an absolute monarchy ruled by the royal clan of Grimbard and its High King or Queen, who exercise ultimate authority over all matters of governance.
The kingdom’s halls are a testament to the prowess of dwarven architects. Cavernous chambers are supported by massive pillars carved with tales of battles, discoveries, and significant occasions from the dwarves’ storied past.
Grimbardun's citizenry is composed exclusively of mountain dwarves. Outsiders rarely pierce the fortress-like confines of the kingdom's mountain halls and are only granted passage by the express invitation of the High King or Queen.
Deep within the Agniavas, the dwarves of Grimbardun toil in their mines, extracting gold, silver, gemstones, and other minerals from veins found deep beneath Praetoria’s surface.
Alongside metalwork, Grimbardun's artisans are celebrated masons who sculpt the very mountain into architectural wonders. From towering statues of renowned ancestors to intricately carved reliefs that tell tales of yore, every stone sings a song of dwarven pride.
Their distinctive dwarven armor, layered and elaborate, as well as their expertly balanced weapons, are treasured by warriors far beyond Grimbardun’s borders.
The kingdom’s dwarves relish contests of skill and strength. The forge sprint is a favorite, with smiths racing against time to create the perfect armor plate or weapon from scratch. Wrestling is also a popular sport, as are gem hunts, during which teams are sent into the mines to retrieve a specific, elusive gemstone.
Hope you enjoyed this visual imagining of the Kingdom of Grimbardun!
