Durak Grund, descendent of Morgrim, one of the greatest of all Dwarfen warriors, is king of Horn Hold, the Dwarfen fortress named Karak Hirn.
But his crown weighs heavily.
Always a Dwarf of words and diplomacy, he learned the cost of inaction when Barak Varr, the sea gate, fell to the Undead Nation sweeping north from the Land of the Dead. But he also learned the error of rash reaction when his own responsive war party was cut down by the spiteful Elves of Bloodroot Forest.
Now, wielding his rune-laden axe, Skrund, the hewer of rock, Durak Grun no longer fights a battle of rage. He fights a war of vengeance. It was his inaction that allowed Barak Varr to fall to the undead and it is through his action that it will once again be liberated.
Though a league infested with Orcs, Goblins and the Warriors of Chaos lies between him and the fallen hold, he and his stout forces will never stop or surrender until he has achieved his goal.
As Morgim, his forefather, leads the Dwarfs east for vengeance against the Elves, Durak Grund forges south.
To victory or death.
