Dwarfs are a proud, bearded folk who are quick to temper, often defined by a love of gems, gold and other precious metals. With their Dwarfholds established across the Old World, the Dawi – as they call themselves in Khazalid – prospered for many generations until their realm was riven by a chain of devastating conflicts and earthquakes.
In recent times, the Dwarfs are a race barely holding onto glories past, with only a few strongholds remaining in their hands and the rest lost to enemies or abandoned to the elements. To this day the Dawi still fight; their ultimate goal is to restore the 'Karaz Ankor' and they have the means to do it with fearsome throngs of warriors and the most advanced weaponry in the Old World.

High King Thorgrim continues his Age of Reckoning, setting out to crush those with unanswered transgressions starting with those in the shadow of Everpeak itself. Thorgrim Grudgebearer is the current High King of the Dwarfs. He is a throwback to the High Kings of old - eager for new conquests, mighty in battle, and a merciless enemy. Yet upon his worn brow, there also sits great wisdom, and he is able to uphold the ancient traditions as well as to accept (if not embrace) needed changes, such as alliances and new technology. Thorgrim is forever brooding upon how to return his people to their former glory. As the ultimate ruler of the Dwarfs, the Great Book of Grudges is entrusted into his keeping. It is Thorgrim’s avowed wish to avenge every single entry contained in that voluminous tome. Such is his resolve that he has already rejuvenated the Karaz Ankor. Tales of his deeds, and the long list of grudges already struck out, fill his grim warriors with the feeling that the Dwarfs have long done without: hope. A new age of retribution has begun.
