Stone Meadows Clan
The Clan of the Stone Meadows is the wealthiest, most politically powerful of all the Shadowyarn clans. Legend holds that when Durin led the dwarves from Thorinshold in the First Age, his search ended in a vast high meadow in the Shadowyarn Mountains just north of the River White. This meadow was strewn with gems of extraordinarily high quality in such vast abundance that the dwarves could not even determine their source. For hundreds of years, Durin and his decendants gathered the gems of the Stone Meadows and mined the nearby hills. The clan controls four mountainholds. The current dwarven king, U-Gene, is a clan member of the Stone Meadows.
