Abyss duergar rarely venture outside their territory, and always with caution. Their equipment often comes off as striking, owing to its strange and extraordinary appearance, seemingly even shrouded in eerie magic. In reality, this is called sciencraft, a blend of craft, industry, and science. These formidable inventions can offer a decisive advantage to abyss duergar: but for now, it would seem the gray dwarves do not seek to use them for conquest, rather focusing their efforts on other issues.
