The Imcando dwarves are an ancient clan of dwarfs, related to the ordinary Dwarves. The Imcando are skilled smithers, having created the original sword of Sir Vyvin's family in the Knight's Sword quest and possibly the Shield of Arrav. The Imcando are believed to have inhabited Ice Mountain, however after the destruction of the Barbarian invasions they are believed to have scattered throughout Asgarnia. Currently the only known existing Imcando dwarf is Thurgo, who, like the rest of the Imcando dwarves, loves redberry pie. Thurgo can be found south of Port Sarim and north of Mudskipper Point, he is also involved in the Knight's Sword and The giant dwarf quest.
The Imcando existed during the God Wars, the devastation of which lead to their refusal of Zemouregal's, a Mahjarrat, request for the Shield of Arrav, one of their most powerful artefacts. It is unknown whether they created the Shield, though it is assumed the Imcando forged it.
Arrav of AvarrockaEdit
Arrav, after meeting Zemouregal in the Dream Land, was sent by his village's elders to find the mythical Shield of Arrav, in the possession of the Imcando dwarves. After wandering through what would later become Asgarnia Arrav settled at the foot of a mountain, possibly Ice Mountain where he was greetted by several Imcando. Despite their refusals of knowing the Shield Arrav stayed with them, hoping to gain their trust. After spending many days with the Imcando and learning their arts of mining and smithing he was refused the Shield.
A century or so ago, during the Barbarian invasions the thriving Imcando dwarves were nearly rendered extinct. The general belief is that they were attacked by Barbarians, though whether Arrav had anything to do with this is unknown. The remaining Imcando were scattered throughout Asgarnia, though due to their limited numbers their race is slowly dwindling. A handful, including Thurgo, live at Asgarnia's southern peninsula. They are believed to be extinct, due to their denial of being Imcando dwarves.
Up to their destruction the Imcando tribe of Dwarves were particularly skilled in Smithing weaponry, and possibly Mining. As mentioned above the sword of Sir Vyvin, passed down through five generations, was created by the Imcando and the Shield of Arrav may have been forged by them. For many hundreds of years they were the world's most renowned smiths. The techniques used by the Imcando were secret, passed down from generation to generation, and any devices created by the Imcando are very hard to replicate.
