I know I'm grasping at the smallest of straws here, but hear me out. I'm not sure whether to have early middle ages or high middle ages, give me your thoughts below. Before we get started, have a go at me in the comments because it is fantasy and because i don't know what to have for the time period.
The scenario i am trying to set up here is a world where humans and dwarves live together and the dwarves are expert engineers, already having discovered gunpowder. They have created massive forts, mines, cities, and castles with giant cannons, mortars, and even long range organ guns. Their king is the great Mötsignïr and he had pushed the drive for guns. their army includes entire brigades of riflemen with flintocks that have outstanding range. The kingdom, Nordgard, is positioned in the Urals.
Humans do not know of Nordgard, with only a few shrewd and wise kings making expeditions only to die to the cold and Russian Winter.
What do you think? Could it would? This has been your host, pan_stan, and as always, thanks for reading!
