Mysteries & Myths
Khundrukar - the Glitterhame
Two hundred years ago an ancient dwarven ancestral home was overtaken by an orc army in the southern Barrier Peak Mountains. Few dwarves were lucky enough to escape, but those who did followed a dwarven smith named Durgeddin the Black. After many years of wandering they discovered a great cavern system deep below a mountain. There they founded the secret stronghold of Khundrukar – the Glitterhame. Myths of today tell a tale of a massive orc army discovering the secret site, and slaughtering all those within just over a hundred years ago. Much of the wealth inside was said to be carried away by the conquering hordes. But it is said that the deepest and best-hidden vaults and armories escaped the looting, and that some of Durgeddin’s extraordinary blades still wait in the darkness for a hand bold enough to claim one.
It’s mysterious location was once lost to history, but was rediscovered by a group of unlikely heroes from the town of Drakonheim.
