The Ulgaen Lodge is a Fyreslayer Lodge orignally located beneath the volcanoes of the Hornteeth Mountains in the Realm of Ghur. After that hold fell they took the volcano of Steelpike in the Realm of Aqshy from the Skaven to form a new hold.[1]

History

For more than five thousand years the Ulgaen Lodge inhabited the Hornteeth mountains, but then their Ur-Lodge under Gaenagrik was destroyed and the main hold, Ulgaen-ar was reduced to that under the Ulmount.[1]

Subsequently, near the end of the Age of Chaos they were besieged for one hundred and one years by the Keeper of Secrets Qular Vo the Unredeemed, but as the prophercies of Hulgar had foretold the hold was betrayed by one of its own and fell to the Slaaneshi hordes.[1]

Traveling through the Gaenagrik Realmgate, the twelve hundred survivors were led by Runefather Ulgathern-Grimnar and his brother to Aqshy. They arrived on the Broken Plains and fought their way through swamps infested by beastmen and hence into the Firespike Mountains to their ancestor lodge of Volturang where they recieved a luke warm reception. They were given leave to retake the nearby Steelpike for themeselves, Volturang promising to take in their non-combatants in bondage until they paid back their debts. [1]

Marag-Or and Drokki awoke the mountain whilst the warriors assaulted the skaven and the tunnels were cleansed with lava. Shortly afterward they were contacted by Seldor, Knight-Azyros of the Hammers of Sigmar who informed them that the Gates of the Realm of Azyr were open once again and Sigmar sought allies. [1]

Ulgaen now consists of two lodges - Ulgaen-dumar and Ulgaen-Kumar.[1]
