Before the capture of Khaleddagun, Ushnara was a dwarven company that worked the iron mines around and beneath this settlement. It had a lot of competition, and was known to use underhanded means to win contracts. In 1826, Khaleddagun was captured by the Drachdekai Pact. Unlike their former competitors, who fled to the safety of Fargimdal lines, Ushnara's directors and many of its employees stayed around. As a result, they took over all the mines in the area. They now answer to Arachnidion's military, who are happy to have skilled natives to feed arms and materials to their war machine. This relationship led to the hiring of neogi, troglodytes and goblins. In some mines, like those south of Gamazûd, they serve as enforcers and overseers for forced labor.
