Fang Rock

Fang Rock is a tall, rocky spire north of the Great Imperial Mountains, in south-western Bamorr-Nudan. The Rock used to be called Khaz-Drukkar when it was occupied by dwarves, but the name has long since fallen out of use and is rarely known to anyone anymore.

Fang Rock was first settled in 796 AF, after a mine further south in the mountain range was sacked by orcs. The dwarven smith Dunhar Blackfist took what remained of his clan north to the rock, and dug into the mountain to establish their hold. Inside they found a network of beautiful natural caves, which they expanded into a stronghold. Dunhar was obsessed with having revenge against the orcs for the terrors they had wrought against both his clan and his race over the long centuries, and so Khaz-Drukkar became the staging point for numerous battles with the orcs. For over 30 years the dwarves raided orc camps and slew many of them, but at last their secret home was discovered, and a number of orc tribes made their way to Fang Rock to lay siege to the hold. Although the dwarves were able to hold out against direct attacks, the orcs eventually tunneled in through the mountain side, and the hold was breached. The dwarves fought to the death, and the hold was overrun. Dunhar himself died on his forge on the 23rd of Low Summer, 831 AF.

Today, Fang Rock is occupied by the Fang Rock Tribe of orcs, led by a massive ogre named Ulfe. The lower levels are held by more dangerous creatures, but the locals do not know of them; the orcs are menace enough.
