Banner of Karak Norn

Karak Norn or Barren Earth Hold is the largest Dwarf hold in the Grey Mountains. [1][2a]

The hold was created by dwarves fleeing from the fall of Mount Silverspear and the warriors from the watchtowers that guarded Mad Dog Pass. Despite its name, it was built over large deposits of metal and semi-precious stones - the only such resource of any size in the mountain range. [1a]

The hold is well placed to provide intelligence on the elves of Athel Loren forest and whilst they have not posed a threat to the Dwarves in more than 4000 years, the dwarves feel that there is no harm in appropriate vigilance. The defences of Karak Norn reflect this concern, blessed with many flame cannons as well as bolt throwers but there is an uneasy truce between the two races. [1a]

Local dwarves look to the hold for leadership and although the hold is normally on good terms with Bretonnia it does side with the Empire when the two nations go to war. During such conflicts, the dwarves normally close the passes through the Grey Mountains. [1a]

In 2510 IC the hold had a population of about 5000 adult dwarves. [1b]

Military

The warriors of the hold often use a quartered red and white scheme for banners and shields.

Notable

  • Brokk Ironpack: Known as the Grim, he is the King of Karak Norn. [1a][2a]
  • Thurma: Queen of the hold, from the Grintzagaz clan. [1a]
  • Thumm Feldpick: Exiled miner who used a few simple Dwarf mining techniques to double the silver yield of the town of Salzenmund and and was crowned king by the grateful townsfolk. [3a]

Subsidiary Settlements

  • Grung Gandaz: A small mining outpost with about 45 adult dwarves. [1b]
  • Khazid Grimaz: A small settlement housing about 63 adult dwarves. [1b]
