History of The Dwarven Kingdoms

                                             [== - Aegis - ==]

Yemekar, the creator and the head diety of the Brathmordakin creates Urguan, the first of the dwarven race.

Urguan creates the first Kingdom of Urguan. Under his reign, the dwarves prosper. Dwarves live in various settlements across the lands. Cave Dwarves largely reside in the areas surrounding what later becomes known as Kal'Urguan while Mountain Dwarves choose to live in the northern mountains of Aegis.

Many dwarven Kings follow from Urguan's reign, leading from the grand city of Kal'Urguan.

A fallen Aengul named Ondnarch attacks mountain dwarf holdings in the north, bringing in his wake, a seemingly eternal winter. The Kingdom is left in disarray as many die from the cold.

The Empire of Khorvad is built from the ashes of the Kingdom of Urguan, under the rule of the Ironborn Dynasty, one of the most powerful factions in dwarven society during the time.

Velkan Ironborn becomes the first Emperor of the Ironborn Dynasty, followed by Khrellax, and later Thorngar Ironborn.

The 'Great Collapse' occurs in Kal'Urguan, in which Emperor Thorngar Ironborn attempts to destroy all knowledge of the past Kingdom. Many dwarves are murdered in the chaos this causes, while most scrolls and books are burnt.

Far to the north, many dwarves gather in the mountain dwarf holdings and here, they forge the Remnant of Urguan, under the leadership of a dwarf named Simppa. The remnant siege Kal'Urguan, until Thorngar Ironborn is killed in his own throne room, after duelling Simppa.

King Simppa leads the dwarves into a new age, reuniting the clans in the city of Kal'Urguan. He creates the first High Council to assist in his governing and protects his kin from the evils of the outside world.

King Simppa "The Savior" grows ill and appoints his Overseer, Charles Grimlie, as King. Charles rules with a mighty iron fist, having the dwarves build various cities across Aegis, including Kal'Alras.

The first known undead emerge and the nether portals open, bringing about the fall of Kal'Bryst, one of many dwarven settlements.

The first Dwarf - Orc war begins, with victories on both sides. This later becomes known as the 'Caravan War.'

After a human alchemist breaks into the Kingdom's iron supply, King Charles goes mad and and wages war against Oren. This decision turns out to be hugely unpopular with many of the clans, including the Goldhands and Grandaxes.

After disagreements between Decks Grandaxe and King Charles over the attack on the humans, the Grandaxe Clan splits into the Braveaxes and Blackaxes. The Blackaxe Clan leaves Kal'Urguan, seeking refuge in their mountain home of Kal'Domhain, while the Braveaxes remain loyal to King Charles, in Kal'Urguan.

Kal'Alras declares its independence from the Kingdom and becomes the nation of Alras.

King Charles "The Ironfist" steps down as King and crowns King Belin Irongut. With a kingdom divided by clan alleigance, Belin rules with a fair and just system of councilling to bring the Kingdom back from the dictatorship, established under Charles' reign.

Outer Kal'Urguan is developed, just to be destroyed by "The Crag," a huge pot hole which drags in many of Kal'Urguan's outer structures.

King Algrim Irongut is crowned after Belin Irongut "The Industrious"'s death, he rules with a soft touch to protect his beaten brothers. This is a down time for the Dwarves as many forsake their homeland to live in other lands. Only a few strong clans remain like the Ironguts and Braveaxes.

Outer Kal'Urguan is redeveloped into farms and a new housing district. The inner wall soon becomes the centre point for trade, within the Kingdom.

Upon seeing the futile state of Kal'Urguan, the Blackaxe Clan returns to the Kingdom under the new leadership of Bazian Blackaxe, the eldest son of Decks.

The Legion is marched to Malinor, in order to assist the elves in destroying an undead keep. The battle is a success and the elves recognise a potential ally for the future.

The Undead, Wrath, attacks Kal'Urguan but suffers a defeat at the hands of the Legion and the elven Wardens. These elves construct Fort Fairleaf, for use in conducting skirmishes against Wrath's Clutch, with the eventual goal of bringing about its ultimate downfall.

After weeks of planning, The Legion and the Wardens launch a successful assault on Wrath's Clutch. However, rather than strengthening ties between the two groups, this only leads to rivalries and disagreement as to who was really responsible for its ultimate downfall, both sides claiming the other had done little.

After bitterness on both sides, the Legion is marched to Fort Fairleaf where they demand that the fort be demolished because it is on dwarven lands. The Wardens grudgingly comply but relations between Kal'Urguan and the Wardens are damaged for years to come. This turns out to be a pivitol event in the deterioration of relations between Kal'Urguan and Malinor.

The Legion begins hunting for the surviving allies of Wrath along the King's Road and in the regions surrounding Kal'Urguan, including the ruins of Wrath's Clutch itself. Sighting are made and some of Wrath's minions are captured but Wrath himself remains elusive.

The Legion is sent to Al'Khazar to fight off the Undead as King Edmund Sheffield is corrupted.

Queen Cassandra of the Undead leads an attack on the great city of Kal'Urguan but it is repulsed due to the defenders great strength. Lord Marshall Thorik Braveaxe leads the Legion in war, while King Algrim ensures his rule is held within the Kingdom.

The Orc - Human war begins but the Dwarves originally choose not to get involved as they are allies of neither nation. Instead, small groups of the Legion are sent to restore order along the King's Road.

As the Humans and Orcs battle at Kramoroe, an elite Dwarven squad searches for King Algrim who is captured by the undead.

King Algrim "The Betrayer" betrays the Dwarves, becoming a minion of the Undead. The elf, Kirrekith, overhears Algrim's interrogation and oath made to Iblees. Algrim is then put under arrest by the Lord Marshall as he returns to Kal'Urguan and is subsequently, dethroned. King Gotrek is crowned but his reign is short lived due to his travels outside of Aegis.

The War Council is formed in Gotrek's absence. This is made up of Lord Marshall Thorik Braveaxe, Longbeard Chaecus Braveaxe, Longbeard Valen Blackaxe, Head Guard Stronghold Braveaxe, Guard Officer Broski Braveaxe, Guard Officer Flynn Blackaxe and Archbishop Thordon Irongut.

Spies and informants operating within Malinor arrive in Kal'Urguan and offer the War Council information on a possible attack from the Wardens in the near future. Years later, these rumours are proven to have been true, although tensions and power struggles between the Princes of Malinor and the Wardens, prevented any invasion from occuring.

Dwarven military leaders including Longbeard Chaecus Braveaxe and Longbeard Valen Blackaxe collaborate with elven spies and rebels to plan an invasion of Laurelin, in the event of a war with Malinor and the Wardens.

Towards the end of the Orc - Human war, the Legion fights alongside the orcs in sieging Al'Khazar to put a swift end to hostilities along the King's Road. However, this proves to be a regretful decision as the orcs are close allies of the Wardens.

A secret defensive Pact is made between Lord Marshall Thorik Braveaxe, representing Kal'Urguan and King Enor, representing Oren in case of a future war.

Lord Marshall Thorik Braveaxe, and Longbeards Chaecus Braveaxe and Valen Blackaxe lead a joint Dwarf - Human assault on an undead keep that is threatening Aeriel's Keep, home to the Ascended. The battle is a success and the Undead are temporarily driven out.

After years of planning by the War Council, Thorik Braveaxe is crowned, through military overthrow of the High Council, with the backing of the Braveaxe and Blackaxe clans. Many in the High Council oppose this act but King Gotrek "The Absent" later gives his blessing to Thorik, upon his return to the city.

A new political system is put in place. This includes the Grand Council, Lower Council, and many new jobs, within the Kingdom. The Longbeards, the commanders of the Legion, Chaecus Braveaxe, Valen Blackaxe, Stronghold Braveaxe and Broski Braveaxe become the new Grand Councilors.

1326 - Upon venturing into the Verge, Tazarak is established, acting as an alliance between Alras, Humans, and Dwarves. Tensions between Tazarak and the orcs and Wardens are on an all high during this time. Alras eventually backs out of the alliance, after High King Syrio discovers his chests broken into.

High Lady Vulena Braveaxe is fired by Grand Councilor Stronghold Braveaxe and Karl Frostbeard is appointed as the new High Lord of Guilds.

1329 - The first Grand Tournament is held. Kjell Ireheart becomes the new Grand Champion of the dwarves.

Grand Councilor Stronghold Braveaxe steps down and Karl Frostbeard assumes his position as Grand Councilor of Guilds.

1336 - A dispute outside of Krugmar between a number of dwarven and orc officials leads to an aggressive engagement, in which a small number on each side are killed. This event acts as the spark that ignites conflict across Aegis.

1336 - Upon witnessing the conflict outside of Krugmar, Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe escapes to Kal'Urguan after he and Karl Frostbeard resist capture by the orcs. Here, he places the Legion on alert and gathers information coming out of Krugmar that the orcs intend to rally an army to siege Kal'Urguan.

1336 - A Legion squad is dispatched to the city of Aeriel after rumours are spread that the Orcs intend to rally there for an attack on dwarven territory. A small battle takes place in Aeriel, resulting in the deaths of a number of orcs and Aeriel townsfolk and the arrest and eventual interrogation of one of the surviving orcs.

1336 - After years of rising tensions and sporadic conflict, an army of Orcs and Elves, led by Warlord Mogroka, siege Kal'Urguan but are defeated by the dwarves and humans, beginning the Great War, Dwarves, Humans and the Kaxil clan against orcs, Wardens and the Teutonic Order.

1336 - Galahar is sieged by the orcs, Teutonic Order and Wardens but are forced to retreat after the dwarves and humans rally for an attack on Krugmar.

1336 - The dwarves and humans siege Krugmar and are shown in through a secret entrance by the Kaxil Clan, a rebelling clan of Orcs.

1336 - 1339 - As the war continues to rage on, various sieges and skirmishes are made on both sides of the conflict. The remnants of the Wardens are eventually forced by Malinor's leadership to pull out of the war, although many continue to fight, leading to the eventual disbandment of the entire Warden military and the end of the Orc - Elf alliance. The Dwarf - Human alliance quickly takes its place as the dominant power in Aegis.

Grand Councilor of War, Chaecus Braveaxe resigns and his High Lord, Gimrik Braveaxe, takes his position. Kjell Ireheart becomes the new High Lord of War.

Former King Algrim is redeemed due to the efforts of his good friend, Kilgrim.

1337 - An alliance is formed between the nations of Kal'Urguan and Oren. As well as this, alliances are established with the city of Aeriel and the Kaxil Clan, in order to gain further allies in times of war.

High Lord Grumdul Blackaxe resigns from his position as High Lord of Economics.

1338 - Increased attacks made by the undead force the dwarves to remain in their homeland.

A torn map piece is delivered to the dwarves by a hooded figure. The completed map is eventually used to guide the races of Aegis to Asulon.

The Dwarven Legion tries to defend Al'Khazar against the undead but is ultimately forced to bring the refugees back to Kal'Urguan and Alras, before the city falls.

1339 - Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe and Warlord Mogroka end the Great War with a peace treaty, allowing Kal'Urguan to join the United Aegis Coalition.

1340 - Former Grand Councilor of War, Chaecus Braveaxe is murdered by the undead High Prophet.

Grand Councilor Gimrik Braveaxe goes rogue, taking control of a Legion fort besides the ruins of Wrath's Clutch. Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe learns of his betrayal and leads an attack on the fort, with the help of a number of orc and human volunteers. The fort is temporarily retaken but Gimrik escapes out of a back exit.

Grand King Thorik Braveaxe fires Grand Councilor Gimrik Braveaxe for his betrayal and appoints his High Lord, Kjell Ireheart as the new Grand Councilor of War.

1341 - The Dwarven Legion, led by Grand Councilors Valen Blackaxe and Kjell Ireheart, arrives in Galahar to aid the Phoenix rebels against an Orc attack. Here, they battle the orcs, driving them out of Galahar. The result of this is that Oren is split between the nations of Hanseti, under Gaius Marius and the Teutonic Order and Renatus, under Eze'kiel Tarus and the Phoenix Rebellion.

1342 - Kal'Urguan is dismissed from the United Aegis Coalition due to a conflict between Urir Ireheart and a number of Alrasian guards. This event angers many dwarves and increases suspicion as to the Ascended's true motives.

1342 - A 100,000 minas bounty is put on the head of Grand Councilor Kjell Ireheart by High King Syrio of Alras, due to the actions of his cousin, Urir Ireheart. The Irehearts are hunted by the Alrasian Order, causing outrage across the Dwarven kingdom. The Blackaxe and Frostbeard clans eventually choose to intervene, against the orders of their King, battling the Alrasian Order outside of Alras, defending their dwarven brothers.

1342 - With the growing pressure from the noble clans of Kal'Urguan, Grand King Thorik Braveaxe and Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe arrive outside the entrance to Alras, where Thorik announces a declaration of war upon Alras. Kal'Urguan, with the help of allied Knights of Galahar, under the command of Lord Gideon Silverblade, sieges Alras, in search of the map pieces that Alras had supposedly come into possession of. The dwarven map piece is eventually retrieved after the battle.

An alliance is made between the nations of Kal'Urguan, Renatus and Malinor.

1343 - The dwarves begin work on a new coalition made up of Kal'Urguan, Renatus, Malinor, Hanseti and Krugmar.

The coalition intervenes to prevent Renatus from sieging Hanseti. Thorik Braveaxe beats Eze'kiel Tarus in a duel to determine the fate of the nation.

1345 - A dwarf by the name of Ingot rallies a militia for an assault on Galahar, in response to the supposed corruption of the local guard force. After gathering much support, the Grand Council is contacted to assist with this effort. After attempts by the Grand Council fail to deal with the situation without bloodshed, the Purge continues and Thorik is forced to order his Grand Councilors, Valen Blackaxe and Kjell Ireheart to rally the Legion to defend Galahar. Valen Blackaxe and Gideon Silverblade arrange a counter attack after the Purge has breached the Galahar walls, accompanied by elven support. The battle is a success and the Purge is defeated.

Kal'Urguan falls to the might of the Undead, forcing the dwarves to once again, relocate to Tazarak.

The first of the Doomforge is born, a mysterious race, possessing a mixed blood between the dwarf, Urir Ireheart and a dark elf, named Faeyin.

Kjell Ireheart, Urir Ireheart and Valen Blackaxe enter the Nether in an effort to defeat the undead. Urir Ireheart sacrifices himself to save the races of Aegis, while Kjell Ireheart and Valen Blackaxe manage to escape before the portals close.

he dwarves and the other nations of Aegis flee to the Verge to escape from the chaos. Here they build ships that are used to sail onwards to Asulon. However, Grand Councilor Kjell Ireheart refuses to leave Kal'Urguan, while Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe goes missing after he is knocked overboard after a lightning bolt strikes one of the ship's engines. Valen's brother and High Lord of Diplomacy, Bazian Blackaxe takes his position as Grand Councilor of Diplomacy.

                                            == Asulon ==

As the Dwarves begin to explore Asulon, they found the Kingdom of Kal'Karik, built upon the ruins of an old Dwarven nation.

A second Grand Tournament is held and Darain Blackaxe becomes the new Grand Champion.

Darius Irongut founds Kal'Dwain which is used as a mining colony for the Dwarves.

2 - After Arbek Starbreaker fails in an attempt to overthrow Grand King Thorik, he and his clan put blame upon Hiebe Irongut, and so the Ironguts leave Kal'Karik, forming a new nation, The Archipelago of Holm. This event splits the Dwarven nation into two.

A group of bandits, splintered from Gimrik Braveaxe's rogue group of dwarves, led by August 'Prince' Flay continue to threaten the citizens of Kal'Karik. They later become known as 'The Hallowed Bandits, holding a fierce reputation for slavery and murder in the dwarven mountains.

9 - Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe returns to the Dwarven nation to find it disunited and under threat from bandits, taking on his position as Grand Councilor once again.

10 - Grand King Thorik "The King of Kings" is murdered by an unknown killer. Upon Thorik's death, Valen Blackaxe resigns and departs from Karik to become the High Constable of Salvus as he fears that the Dwarf's greed has changed the nation from what it was in Aegis.

13 - Former member of the first Grand Council and son of Thorik, Broski Braveaxe is crowned Grand King of Karik. He inherits a weakened nation but one that has great potential for the future. He changes the governmental system, bringing about an end to the Grand Council system of governing.

18 - Karik joins a coalition of Hanseti, The War Uzg, Salvus and Alras. Together, they successfully siege the fortress of Das Boot. The war between Hanseti and Renatus ends soon after.

18 - Kjell Ireheart arrives in Asulon on the back of a dragon that originated in Aegis. The dragon did not survive the landing. He claims "Ah 'ave killed six bludeh dragons!"

20 - The Dwarves are forced to abandon Karik after a dragon is unleashed upon it. The great doors are barricaded but many Dwarven lives are lost, Valen Grandaxe was knocked off the walkway ,his only chance of survival was to enter the Kal'Varak.

The Dwarves move to the North and begin building a new city which becomes known as Khaz'A'Zhar.

Gimrik Braveaxe, son of former Grand King Thorik Braveaxe, steps down from his position as King of War. Grand King Broski Braveaxe appoints Kjell Ireheart to his position.

An expedition is made into Karik to retrieve the old Dwarven crown of Grand King Thorik Braveaxe. However, Humans from Renatus get there first and refuse to return it back to the Dwarven Kingdom, angering many of the Dwarves.

Orcs invade Khaz'A'Zhar, beginning a new war between the Dwarves and Orcs. In one battle, Khaz'A'Zhar is badly damaged after explosives are set, in order to drive out the Orc invaders.

An alliance is made between Salvus and the Dwarves, in order to make a stand against warmongering nations.

A Dwarf by the name of Thordat Goblinpick, unsatisfied with Broski's rule, attempts to overthrow him. However, this is quickly put down and Broski Braveaxe "The Brave" agrees to hand over the crown to somebody who he believes to be capable of running the Dwarven Kingdom.

Stronghold Braveaxe is originally chosen to be the next King of the Dwarven nation but he instead chooses to hand the crown over to Kjell Ireheart who he sees as being the most worthy candidate to lead the Dwarves.

The Legion is sent to defend Salvus lands from the Orc army, after a coalition of nations attacks it. The Legion, lacking the strength it once had, is forced to retreat.

Upon Kjell's crowning, he effectively establishes a dictatorship over the Dwarven nation. Many changes are made and Kjell moves the Dwarven capital once again, to Mount Ire, where a new city is built.

The engineers of the Kingdom invent the first dwarven printing press.

Morgrim Blackaxe, a rogue Blackaxe to the Dwarven Kingdom and the son of Valen Blackaxe arrives at Mount Ire with a message for the rest of his brothers. He almost starts a rebellion against Kjell but soon negotiates with him, both Dwarves agreeing to create a government that is similar to the Dwarven governments of old.

After a brief period of peace in the Dwarven Kingdom, tensions heat up with the Orcs once again, upon the emergence of the new Rex, Gromgok Gorkil. The north quickly becomes a battlefield for the orc and dwarf armies.

Bazian Blackaxe discovers a long hidden tome, in which he learns the true history of the Blackaxe bloodline. As it turns out, both the Blackaxes and Braveaxes had descended from a noble clan of ancient times, the Grandaxes. Both clans choose to take upon this new name and reunite with their lost kin.

After many long years of tensions between Alras and the Dwarves, with both Syrio Forel and Aislin Hightower dead, the Dwarves invade Alras, and with little resistance thanks to the efforts of Gorum and Moruk Goldhand, reclaim it for the Dwarven Kingdom, restoring its old name of Kal'Alras.

Three noble clans emerge amongst the chaotic situation within the Dwarven Kingdom. The Ironguts, the short statured, cave dwellers of Kal'Dwain, The Goldhands, the avaricious but steadfast residents of Kal'Alras and the Grandaxes, the honourable and valiant inhabitants of Kal'Anart.

Paragon Kjell Ireheart reintroduces the Grand Council of old. With the victory against Alras and the clans being allowed to retain a degree of their independent nature, faith is restored in the Paragon by those who doubted him.

With the Dwarven Kingdom now consisting of both multiple holds, a capital and the lands around Kal'Alras, a new Dwarven Empire is forged, with Paragon Kjell Ireheart as its leader.

An Orc and Subudai army is defeated in the 'Battle of the Sands' by the Dwarven Empire. The Dwarves prepare for future counter attacks on Orc held land.

The Subudai claim they were decieved by the Orcs and that their decision to attack the Dwarven Empire had been based upon a misunderstanding.

The Empire of Urguan continues to push the orcs, along with their allies in House Flay, back into the northern territories. The Orcs eventually launch an invasion of Kal'Alras but are defeated after a number of battles. After the recapture of Volvokrem, the war is ended through a peace treaty.

Wishing for more independence, the Empire is dissolved and each hold becomes an independent state, each with its own clan Lord. Lord Bazian Grandaxe of Kal'Anart, Lord Hiebe Irongut of Kal'Dwain and Lord Gulroid Goldhand of Kal'Alras are the first of the dwarven Lords.

The Council of Holds, agrees in favour of ending the war with the orcs and instead, decides to work together in pursuing what is perceived as more worthy a goal. War with the Teutonic Order, a faction who by now, had betrayed both the orcs and dwarves.

The three dwarven Lords take upon the decision to return their clans to Kal'Karik and begin a new age of Kings.

After many long years, Valen Grandaxes returns to his kin, alive and well, after he had spent over forty years trapped in the nexus of the Kal'Varak, a dream world of his past memories. The Doomforge were able to preserve his body through powerful rune magic, until finding a suitable healer.

Drakes attack Kal'Dwain but are repulsed by the defender's unwavering might, along with the return of the Wandering Wizard, now better known as the White Wizard.

Hiebe Irongut is crowned King of the dwarves and ruler of the Kingdom of Urguan after Kjell Ireheart "The Zealous"s departure. His council consists of many including the former Grand Councilor, now his Consular, Valen Grandaxe. Tortek Irongut takes upon the position as Lord of the Irongut clan.

A third Grand Tournament is held and Kel Steelarm becomes the new Grand Champion of the dwarves.

In his old age and his health deteriorating from what it once was, Bazian Grandaxe appoints his eldest brother, Valen Grandaxe to become the new Lord of the Grandaxe Clan.

A diplomatic crisis occurs when an important ally of the dwarves is executed in Arethor. Upon investigating, threats are made between both sides and a grudge of honour is declared upon Hochmeister Mirtok and the Teutonic Order. They battle on the plains of Arethor with the dwarves emerging victorious.

A meeting is held and from it, an alliance is made between Urguan, Malinor, Holm and the Kharajyr.

The Lords and Councilors of the Kingdom of Urguan converge and write up a dwarven constitution for all future governments to be based upon.

King Hiebe Irongut leads a group of elves and dwarves to rescue an elven Princess from the orc capital. Many of the orcs are slain in the rescue and the Princess is returned safely to Malinor.

A war breaks out between Malinor and the War Uzg, forcing the dwarves to prepare its military for the event of another world war. The Holy Oren Empire stays neutral in the conflict and while there are hostilities on both sides, an uneasy truce is held between The Kingdom of Urguan and the War Uzg.

House Tarus and House Elendil order a rebellion against Emperor Godfrey of the Holy Oren Empire. The rebellion is quelled but House Tarus exiles itself within dwarven lands. This angers House Hightower and relations between the Kingdom of Urguan and the Holy Oren Empire break down.

The Remnants of House Flay, now known as the Syndicate lay siege to Kal'Karik, with assistance from unidentified orcs. This causes a diplomatic crisis with the War Uzg, though it is disputed as to whether these orcs were whitewash or not. Consular Valen Grandaxe, Lord Marshal Goruk Goldhand, and Commander Gorum Goldhand lead the dwarves to victory and the invaders are defeated in the famous 'Battle of Kal'Karik,' one of the largest and bloodiest battles in dwarven history.

Disagreements arise between the Irongut and Goldhand clans, when a council vote is called, in favor of a re-election. However, the Goldhands are outvoted and subsequently Lord Marshal Goruk Goldhand and High Ambassador Gorum Goldhand both resign from their positions.

Lord Marshal Kjell Ireheart and King Hiebe Irongut enter a dispute over the Crimson Edict, a guild of warriors, working directly under Hiebe. The King is eventually forced to remove the Crimson Edict from his service.

The first amendment is made to the dwarven constitution, stating that only true blooded dwarves may hold power within the council of Urguan.

The dwarves voyage from Asulon, in search of new lands as the world is consumed by an unknown power. However, they and the other nations of Asulon are shipwrecked on the Isle of Elysium, where they begin founding new settlements.

                                     [== - Isles of Elysium & Kalos -''' ==]

The former Grand King, Thorik Grandaxe, thought to be dead, is found deep within the caves of the Elysium volcano, possessed by the spirit Ondnarch. Valen Grandaxe destroys the source of Ondnarch's power with the Hammer of Urguan and Thorik is released from his will.

After grievances over King Hiebe Irongut "The Radical"s actions, Tortek Silverfist, Gorum Frostbeard and Kjell Ireheart agree to place Thorik Grandaxe back in power. After speaking with Consular Valen Grandaxe, it is agreed that Thorik holds rightful ownership over the Kingdom. With Thorik's bid for power, House Silverblade and House Hightower reconfirm their strong ties with the dwarven nation. However, removing Hiebe from power unsettles Malinor and House Tarus.

Despite earlier rifts, the dwarves agree to assist the White Rose and the War Uzg in laying siege to the newly reformed House Flay and the Teutonic Order. The battle is a success and Emperor Godfrey gives the victory his blessing.

Thorik Grandaxe is officially crowned Grand King of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan and beneath him, Valen Grandaxe, Hiebe Irongut, Omithiel Strongbrow, Tortek Silverfist and Kjell Ireheart are made Dwarven Lords.

The dwarves begin work on completely redrafting the constitution, now known better as 'The Articles of Urguan.'

After relations improve between The Grand Kingdom of Urguan and the Holy Oren Empire, Grand King Thorik Grandaxe and Emperor Godfrey sign the Treaty of Aturial, and make a blood pact between the two nations, promising an alliance between them. For the first time in over fifty years, the dwarves and humans enter an alliance together.

After the golem crafting anvil goes missing, it is found to be in the hands of High Elves. In his fury, Lord Paragon Kjell Ireheart breaks the alliance with Malinor, with no objections from the Lord's Council.

For Lord Tortek's part in hiding the true location of the anvil, he is voted out of the Lord's Council. Replacing him is the Grand King's eldest cousin and former King of commerce, Bazian Grandaxe.

Under a new Rex, the orcs of the War Uzg invade the Kharajyr stronghold while a group of allied dwarves are stationed there. The stronghold is pillaged but later rebuilt by the dwarves. Only two dwarves survive the battle but bring word of the attack the the Grand Kingdom of Urguan.

Enraged at the orc's betrayal of the peace treaty, the Lord's Council agrees on a full scale invasion of the War Uzg. Emperor Godfrey offers his support and together, the Grand Kingdom of Urguan and the Holy Oren Empire fight side by side, surrounding orc held territory in a matter of weeks. In the first true battle, Kjell Stormhammer and Thorin Grandaxe lead the siege against an orc stronghold which later becomes known as Kazad'Urkus. The dwarf / human alliance emerges victorious.

The second amendment is made to the Articles of Urguan, setting out the rules and regulations of Holds beneath the Grand Kingdom of Urguan.

Thorik Grandaxe steps down as Grand King and calls for a re-election. Omithiel Strongbrow is crowned and elected Grand King of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. Upon his coronation, he appoints Gorum Frostbeard to replace him as Lord.

The dwarves travel to the Isles of Kalos where the war with the War Uzg continues to rage on. The death toll is high on both sides of the conflict as the two races prepare to set sail for Anthos.

The nations sail for Anthos, finally arriving in the newly constructed city of Kal'Azgoth.

                                                [== - Anthos -==]

The dwarves settle into the grand city of Kal'Azgoth under Grand King Omithiel Strongbrow, hoping for a peace never before seen in dwarven history. With an alliance with Oren, prospects look higher than ever.

The Empress of Oren and Wife of Emperor Godfrey Horen is kidnapped by a group of orc raiders. She is taken the to the War Uzg and placed in a sky cell. Upon learning of this, a joint Human - Dwarf raid is launched upon the orc capital and the inner city is breached with ladders. The orcs make a final charge but are eventually defeated, while only a small number escape with their lives.

The Grand Kingdom of Urguan launches a military strike into the territory of the War Uzg, first by targetting an orc fortress along the crossroads. After a large battle lead by the Grand Marshal, Paragon Kjell and Legion Commander Thorin Grandaxe, the dwarves push the orcs back into the fort until they are eventually slain and the land is laid claim to by the dwarves.

Both Lord Hiebe Irongut, and Lord Bazian Grandaxe retire due to age. In their place, Karl Frostbeard and Arcane Grandaxe rise as the new Lords.

Telchar Azaghul and his clan mates invent the Steam Engine and implement it into the Legion's Navy.

The Orcs attempt to have peace negotiations with the Dwarves. Lord Valen Grandaxe and Lord Gorum Frostbeard gave them one choice upon Grand King Omithiel's decision, they were to return the Arken Stone in return the war would end. The Orcs refused, and the war raged on.

Tensions with the Elven Princedom rise. Lord Gorum Frostbeard and Lord Karl Frostbeard discover unsettling information regarding the stability of the Elven Princedom. Shortly after, Grand King Omithiel gives his word to an Elven Rebellion force, soon after the High Elves step down, giving the Elves room to fix their flawed system.

Tensions with the house of Oren known as Blackmont begin to rise as more Dwarves return to Kal'Azgoth reporting witnessing several attacks on the Dwarven kin by House Blackmont. In response, the Legion under the command of Dreek Ireheart, accompanied by Lord Kjell Ireheart and Lord Gorum Frostbeard, marched towards the Blackmont keep warning them of their actions and what may occur if they continue.

Tragic news comes across the Dwarven kin as the Grandaxe Clan, alongside Archbishop Koryk Starbreaker, announce the passing of Lord Valen Grandaxe. After many years, he had finally succumbed to the curse of the nether. A funeral is planned in his honour and he is subsequently named a Paragon by the Clergy, taking upon the title 'The Wordsmith.'

A meeting occurs involving the War Uzg, the Kingdom of Urguan, and the Holy Empire of Oren. Tensions were high, though the War Uzg pushed for the treaty of Aturial to be broken, while Oren stuck by it in support. The alliance proved strong and though hostilities had lessened, the war continued.

Nalro Grayhammer invents the DPC, an armored transer vehicle driven by oxen.

The Fourth Grand Champion of Urguan is announced in a tournament hosted by Lord Gorum Frostbeard, Oyvind Frostbeard wins the title.

The Adunians accept Thorin as their liege. They settled in Whitescar, north of Kal'Azgoth, near Brom'Krah.

Kal'Halla is abandoned, and the dwarves living there move back to Kal'Azgoth.

The Third Amendment to the Articles of Urguan is proposed by Grand King Thorin Grandaxe, recommending a new system of Crown Authority.

Some dwarves were not content with Thorin’s coronation, some- not satisfied with the new lords. The Irongut clan split up, one stayed as Loyalist Ironguts, and the other became the ‘Thunderfist’ clan and moved to Vaer’haven.

The Thunderfist clan declared war on the loyalists, everyone who supported Grand King Thorin, beginning the Second Dwarven Civil War. The only land the rebels had was Vaer’haven, the settlement where all races were welcome. This attracted support for the rebels from other lands. Every attack that the rebels attempted had failed. Most rebels were captured and tortured for information. Grand King Thorin Grandaxe founds a new Kingdom, naming it "The Grand Kingdom of Urguan." a feast is held in celebration, and Thorin's name is gleefully shouted for many years to come.

Years after the rebellion, many of the lords became disgruntled with Thorin’s rule style and attempted to lower his power. Grand King Thorin employed an iron fist style and removed Dreek Ireheart, one of the two main lords behind the conflict, from Grand Marshal. This move caused Lord Dreek Ireheart and Lord Delric Grandaxe to resign from their positions as Lords, claiming the Kingdom was corrupt.

Thorin Grandaxe places Dreek Ireheart on trial for 70,000 minas. Dreek Ireheart, loses the case and pledges resources in the form of iron to the kingdom in order to fund the coming war.

The Fifth Grand Champion of Urguan is announced and Dain Ireheart wins the title.

Yet again, a small rebellion had emerged. “The Fallen” a small guild settled in Vaer’haven The Legion quickly collected information they needed and tortured the ones they captured. It was over before it began.

The ancient blood pact between humans and dwarves is broken. Humans have attacked a dwarven Lord, Narlo Grayhammer. Grand King Thorin Grandaxe declares war on Oren. Most agree with the decision.

The first battle takes place, it is most often known as "The Battle of Snow" or "Battle of the Crossroads". Unfortunately, the dwarves are outnumbered and lose the battle. Storm's Crossing gets hit with multiple raids, but none succeeded.

Thorin appoints the King's Concil position of Head Remembrancer to Wulfric Grandaxe. He also passes an amendment. For the war's time being, there will be Councillors for War, Diplomacy and Economics. Thorin appoints Thorik Grandaxe and Paragon Kjell Ireheart.

There hasn't been an attack for over one year, therefore Thorin demands peace, but demands things that would make Oren partially powerless. He knew that the new Emperor William Horen would decline the terms, but also decline their last chance of survival in this war.

Oren royalty hosts a meeting in the Cloud Temple library. Adunians, Elves are alos present. The Oren royalty deny giving the Westerlands and erecting a mighty statue of Thorin. Lord Gorum Frostbeard takes out 'the torch'. He passes it to Grand King Thorin Grandaxe, as he lights the peace treaty on fire and drops it on the table "There's yer peace", and walks off, the voices of dwarves echo across the library "KAVIR OZ UMROS!!" "KAVIR OZ OREN"

Salvus defects and King Garth Hightower makes an oath to Thorin. Urguan banners are put around Kingston, and not long afterwards, Oren declares itself a Kingdom, and accepts all the demands for peace. William Horen III leaves temporarily and gives his new title of King to his heir, Nero Horen. Pius Silverblade is titled king, and hopes rise to a future long-lasting alliance, but the Horen royalty accuse him of treason, and everyone else who follows him.

Telchar Azaghul and Nalro Grayhammer create a more efficient steam engine and implement it into the DPC.

After the secession of Salvus the war took a turn and the rest of Oren split apart. The various kingdoms that were created all sheltered under the Grand Kingdom for a short number of years.

The time of peace caused inner conflict in Kal’Azgoth. The Starbreakers had caused a conflict with both the Frostbeards and Grandaxes. The Frostbeards had pulled everyone against eachother. The Ironguts have also become very important in the argument. The conflict hasn’t caused a civil war.
