Kadar-Gravning was a Dwarf Hold in the Vaults. [1a]

History

Hargrim Irohand led his followers through the Vaults, fighting through greenskin infested lands until he reached the Yetzin valley were he created he hold, then named Karak-Gronhud - the Stronghold among the Goblins. [1a]

Hargrim would die in battle with his warriors during the War of the Beard his last heroic stand making an impression on the Elves who wiped them out.[1a] They returned his body under a flag of truce and the hold was renamed Kadar-Gravning - the revered mountain of the burials. [1b]

After the war had been concluded, more dwarfs settlers bolstered the population and a underground highway was opened, leading to the World's Edge Mountains and Caraz-a-Carak. [1b]

Soon after the hold was repeatedly attacked by greenskins from the Darklands and its outposts near Winter's Teeth Pass were destroyed. The underway was collapsed and Kadar-Gravning isolated from their kin. Although Expeditions were dispatched to try and regain contact, none succeeded and the population began to decline over the millenia. [1b]

During the Great War Against Chaos, the hold was attacked by a Khorne worshipping horde. They were driven back time and again, eventually they sent in Trolls led by their chieftain Agblad Thundergut but he too fell and the Chaos forces moved on. [1b]

A strange green gem, carved with Dwarf Runes was found on the Corpse of the huge Troll leader and hailed as a token of victory. It was buried with their ancient king, Hargrim. [1b]

Then around 2400 IC, the Bloodaxe Alliance invaded the valley, {Fn|1b}} fighting their way into the hold and killing the entire population. Before they died, they managed to seal the tombs which remained untouched. [1c]

It became a home for Trolls, goblins and worse. [1c]
