Map-Orzammar Shaperate

Map of the Area

The Shaperate is the governing organization of the Shapers. Shapers are the historians, scholars, genealogists, and philosophers of the dwarves. They are supposed to be apolitical, devoted solely to their work maintaining the Memories, but this is, of course, impossible.

An example of a Shaper would be a Shaper of Memory: a sage who keeps records of dwarven history and genealogy. Their task is important—almost sacred.
