Physically identical to the Gorbesh, the Kaldar are as much
a political party as a race. Desiring a purer and more natural
way of life where individual heroism and honor can be valued

Gorbesh Empire -- they followed the Gnomic prophet Trimbolt

Terrible to behold in a melée, the Kaldar laugh at
the storm and sneer at those who would shiver behind civilized
walls during the winter. Within the Kaldar society the path
of magic is frowned upon since, to their minds, it is better
to go the path the gods intended for their naturally tall,
Kaldar take offense to the proposal that they are little
more than glorified Humans. Kaldar consider Humans to be over-civilized
and under-exercised -- in a word, "soft". The Kaldar
society co-existed peacefully with the Gnomes, the stronger,
taller species acting as much-needed defenders and protectors.
Kaldar like the cold, and enjoy taking icy-cold baths in the
