Hag Graef (meaning "dark crag") is one of the six cities of Naggaroth, the realm of the Dark Elves. The city stands in a great valley where the mountains block out all sunlight. Hag Graef is the most feared by captives of the Dark Elves, for none have escaped it alive.
Hag Graef was originally created by the armies of Malekith when they had failed to invade Ulthuan. Fearing his wrath, their Black Ark embarked in the crag a few leagues down the coast and was established as a city. When Malekith heard that his warriors had hid in a crag he was furious and assembled an army to annihilate the populace, Morathai however saw how more could be gained from the manipulation of the city, and since then Malekith's coffers have swelled as the city has waxed and waned.
Great, dark and sharp towers rise towards the sky above, but nothing can reach the the skies, and it seems that it is forever night in the valley. So the city is bathed in a dark gloom, and the caves are shining in an sickly green light from the warpstone that litters the caves. In the hillsides lay the mines of Naggaroth, where hundreds of slaves dig iron and rock for the realm.
Day and night you can hear hammers beating against the rock, the cracks of whips and the screams of the slaves. It is freezing cold in the caves, and the Dark Elves likes beating them to their will are broken and to they collapse of starvation and thirst. Even in death they cannot rest as the warpstone animates their dead bodies to they collapse in piles of bones.
