EkrundFull1

Ekrund is a major Dwarf Hold of the High Dwarves, and is a central piece to the survival of Karak Ankor, as well as the capital of the Realm of Ekrund. As one of the surviving holds of Karak Ankor this hold has seen its fair share of violence and attack. Situated inside a valley, and with mines that were not as badly damaged by the earthquakes that destroyed much of the other Karak Ankor Holds has meant that it is the safest and most populated of the Karak Holds and is only explised by the capital.

Ekrund is located in the Valley of Peaks southward of Karak Kadrin, and northward of Karaz-A-Karak. North of Ekrund lies the High Pass which is the most heavily contested of the World Edge Mountain Passes, and south of Ekrund lies the Peak Pass which is defended by Karaz-A-Karak and is the only pass which is usually constantly held by the forces of nobility.

Ekrund was one of the first Holds founded by the Dwarves as they moved into the mountains of the World Edge, and away from their ancient home in Finland. As Karak Ankor grew so to did Ekrund grow, and as time went on under the rulership of the powerful Bronzebeard Clan the riches of Ekrund were exclipsed only by Karak-Eight-Peaks, and the capital Hold. These riches couldn't saVe them from the encroaching horde of Greenskins, and SkaVen that oerwhelmed the holds of Karak Ankor, and during this dark time the Hold of Ekrund lost much of its outlying mines, and the depths of the mine were shattered by the never ending horde of Skaven. As the tide begin to recede a truly disasterous series of inasions led to the Hold becoming embroiled in a bitter pitch battle in the lower mines of the Hold and this was only ended during the Battle of Ekrund when a large force of Karak Ankor arried at the Hold and they together droe out the Skaen.

Ekrund is currently led by its Lord Kurden Bronzebeard who has led it for centuries. The bronzebeard family has traditionally been the rulers of Ekrund, with the current Kurden being the longest reigning in Ekrund history.

History

Early History

Main Article : Karak Ankor {C}Ekrund was first founded following the dwarven Exodus into Europe. This exodus led the Dwarves to many of the mountains in Europe, and one such mountain was the mountains of Ekrund. In these mountains the Dwarves of the Ekrundian Clan named the mountain after themselves and busied themselves with growing the Hold. Part way into the eXpansion of the hold the hold became dominated by the Bronzebeard Clan and this clan brought the tradition that has stayed inside Ekrund of this Hold being stark conseratiVes in that they do not in any way condone the sort of anti-moral behaVior of some of the other holds including mostly the darkness of the Iron Dwaren Clan.
