The Deep Kingdom, also known as the Deep Realm, was the name of a kingdom of gold dwarves that was found in the caverns of the Great Rift and the surface lands surrounding it.


When first established, the Deep Kingdom occupied lesser caverns and tunnels under the Eastern Shaar.


The Deep Kingdom was established after the fall of Telantiwar and stood unconquered for generations. The Thunder Blessing filled the caverns of the Deep Kingdom beyond their capacity, so a large number of gold dwarves set out to expand in new lands.[1]
