During the reign of Snorri III High King of Karaz-a-Karak, Orduin Silverbeard a Dwarven Loremaster and Runesmith was given the order to found a secret hold to serve as a great storehouse for Dwarven Lore. This was a great and honourable undertaking and the Silverbeard’s were to be the Thanes of this new hold. No expense was to be spared in the undertaking and clans were to be chosen from throughout the Dwarven Empire. Karak-Vedrin took three generations to complete and only the greatest and most skilled of the Dwarven clans were chosen to become part of the new hold. The site that was chosen was to remain a secret with only those clans who called it home to know its true location. With the finest Smiths and Miners and the greatest Loremasters and Runesmiths the hold was defended by both mundane and magical means. This storehouse was filled with the most important items and lore of the Dwarves.

This is the tale that my father told me as a child. I have not seen the hold since my days as a young Dwarf. Now that the hold has fallen much has been lost and I cannot help but feel that the dark days of my race are upon us. It is now my task to try to find and restore these great treasures to my people and claim my rightful position as Thane.
