The Aurum is a secretive social club containing many of the wealthiest citizens of Khorvaire with an interest in history and artifacts of the past.[1][2][3]

History Edit

The Aurum started as a fraternity of wealthy and powerful dwarves from the Mror Holds. When the Kingdom of Galifar collapsed the dwarves suddenly had a nation of their own, the members of this collective began to look beyond the Ironroot Mountains.[1][2][3][4]

Organization Edit

Members of the Aurum, known as Concordians, wear eight rings of a varying metal (copper, silver, gold or platinum) at all times, a tradition derived from the dwarves. These rings correspond to their Concord. Each ring has the same value as 10 coins of the same metal.[2]

Membership is divided between different concords corresponding to the metals of the rings they wear. Social position determines at what level new members join, but station is not determine solely by wealth or social position. In theory any Concordian can ascend through merit to the Platinum Concord.[1][2][3]

Some believe there is a secret conspiracy within the Aurum that operates separately from the Concords. This Shadow Cabinet is believed to have plans to rule the continent of Khorvaire.[1][2][3]

Base of Operations Edit

The Aurum is headquartered in Krona Peak in the Mror Holds.[1]
