Is there no option for king that is in favor of getting rid of the caste system? The way they go on about the casteless makes it seem like there should be an option to get rid of all that crap.
Harrowmont wants things to stay the same as far as I can tell, and Bhelen seems to be a total crook. Is there no third option? --- "What about the novelty music paparazzi?" - Flight of the Conchords Gamertag: oOBadAndyOo
Well if you don't mind spoilers I can tell you the end game text about Bhelen.
During the ending it shows some flash screens of the lands you've been too and what happens to them. If you pick Bhelen as king he ends up pretty much getting rid of the caste system and trying to make the dwarf kingdom more "modern".

Harrowmont is quickly assassinated, and the dwarves fall back into their assembly deadlocks, if I remember right. --- The keys to success are honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake those, you've got it made. - G. Marx
I don't remember what the text said in detail but Harrowmont does rule for a time but he is unable to keep the Assembly together and properly put a lid on the uprising after Bhelen's death. He still has some support for his conservative ways but eventually he falls ill and dies, supposedly due to foul play.
And all Harrowmont manages to do is strengthen Orzammar's isolationist policies with the surface. --- If you can still bleed, you can feel pain. If you can feel pain, you are still alive. Concentrate on that pain, and use it as your focus.
