After the Great Emigration from Kalaza, the Kikthuum Clan settled by Lake Jostallim, close to the Gulroten Clan town of Bortrazo's Canyon. Using the resources near to them, the Kikthuum dwarves crafted all types of watercraft. The passage of time and the discovery of veniom by the neighboring Gulroten Clan eventually led the Kikthuum Clan to create the first of many submersibles. The secrets of these designs are held closely to this day.
Rumors suggest that a few renegades of the Kikthuum Clan became pirates in the Great Western Sea.
