RE: Crisis Cycles
Culture Name: Gildrak Hold: The Era of Ankh-Tawy.

Government and Leader: King Yaem Atmi. The new leader of the reunited Gildrak Hold, a descendant of King Dagram II who had returned to Gildrak Hold to bring back the united strength of the dwarven people and gather together the culture and history found in the centuries. He rules over a democratic council that can veto him, called "Shai-Consulars." These Shai-Consulars are representatives of seperate holds and communities they are responsible for taking direct care of and speaking of their concerns. King Yaem Atmi.

Society: A hard working and introspective lot. In recent years, the idea of finding a faith or philosophy to follow has taken on hold, leading to philosophical debates and charms and speakers and questers and wise men and trinket-sellers and priests finding room to speak and find patronage or guidance. Maybe it was the appearance of gods and plagues and the deep below that shook the cultures of these dwarves into the pondering mindset about reality, maybe it the mysticism and ways that Yaem Atmi has developed and brought from the Shamir worm culture himself, that let the dwarves of Gildrak begin thinking and discussing things more openly inbetween a days hard work. As it is now, the various faiths and discussions have led many a dwarf to  go questing to find their own way and path, which in turn has led to a more cosmopolitan and less xenophobic and guarded view of strangeness or newness.

Dwarves still prefer their physical constructions and epic works, but are a little more open about creation for the sake of creation and some more art and whimsy in things leading to a sort of renaissance of dwarven infrastructure from their ancient pasts and diverse paths taken up to this point as well as the history of the world afar. 

Species: Dwarves!

Stances on the three changes: Love: Yes. Dwarves setting up shop with other races as partners has been becoming more and more common, as well as the crossing of lines between old clans and bloodlines more freely. PDAs are still considered a bit... much perhaps, intimacy should be intimate, but it's less gossip-worthy or frowned upon as older generations lighten up.
Bottomless: Yes. Rock and stone. If there's one thing that still calls to dwarves, it's to go deep.
Sky: No. Sometimes you need to get somewhere quickly, but even in the youngest and most free-spirited of Gildrak hold dwarves prefer to keep their feet on their ground, even if they can appreciate the craft of the sky ships.

Major cultural influence: Shamir worm something.
