The Dwarven Kingdom and the Imperium have had a trade alliance for hundreds of years. The lack of tension between these two nations is in part due to the reclusiveness of the dwarves, and the fact they stake no common claims.

The Imperium has had open trade with the High-Elves from the Eladrin Concordate for at least a century, including acquirement of mercenaries from the continent. However, they have rarely sent a diplomat to the continent and little is know about High-Elvish politics or lands.
