Prizm is a Dwarven City ruled by the Quartzeye Clan.

Clans of Prism

Discovery and Founding

While exploring the countryside in the year 7AU, the dwarf, Brann Quartzeye (then known as Brann the Wanderer) came across a large gash in the side of a cliff in the Torig Mountains. He’d traversed the area several times in the past and never seen the cave, and came to the conclusion that it had been created by The Upheaval.

Upon exploring the caves, Brann eventually found a small cavern with a large crystal in the ceiling glowing softly. As time went by, the hue the crystal gave off slowly morphed through the visible spectrum. He eventually excavated around the crystal and slowly built a city that he named Prism and founding the Quartzeye clan.

Prism time is slow time

The hues given off from the Prism coordinate with the hours of the day. The hue constantly shifts at a slow rate, but gives locals an idea of what time it is. A dwarf referring to something around 9pm would say “2nd Yellow”.
