Wartales online campaign: the Dragonback tale

Recommended Posts

The lives and deaths of today are naught but food for tomorrow's tale...
The year is 2520. For over four thousand years, the Dragonback Mountains have sheltered countless goblins. But before then, another master had claimed that region as home. In those ancient days the dwarves built Ekrund, a mining hold away from the World's Edge Mountains, driven by the ambition to achieve greater things than what their homes offered.
For several centuries, the hold thrived. But then came the greenskins, in a tide so great that Ekrund could not resist. The dwarves fought bravely, their resolve in the face of such numbers a testament to their race's courage. But in the end they fell, and to this day the Dragonback mountains are infested with goblins and worse.
But things change, as they always must. Greed has unified the merchant houses of Marienburg, and they have gathered an army of mercenaries to capture the ancient hold. There, they hope to set up a port city, capable of dominating the area's trade- and replace Barak Varr as the Black Gulf's greatest naval presence.
The hubris of Marienburg has rallied the dwarves of Karak Izor, Karak Hirn and Barak Varr to a common cause. Infuriated by mankind's arrogance, they have organized an expedition of their own. No manling shall be suffered to walk the hallowed halls of lost Ekrund, no human king allowed upon its throne. The dwarves are zealous in their dedication to keep the humans from taking what belongs to them- by force, if necessary.
While the humans and dwarves squabble among themselves, a great Waaagh! approaches from the south. Belligerent as ever, the orcs of the badlands are not about to miss out on a scrap between the humies and stunties. They aim to take the harbors of Ekrund for themselves, and construct a great Waaagh!fleet there- but first, they need to kick out the goblins currently occupying the hold, and keep out the humies and stunties long enough to carry out their plan.
As three armies clash over this ancient prize, the scribe sets his quill to parchment, and pens another tale of war...
