History of Hammerfast
Hammerfast used to be a dwarfen necropolis. A place for the dead. The years where good to the dwarven people and their graves became or lavished and more and more treasure accumulated in this little place.
Located so far away from any military outpost made it an obvious target for the Bloodspear orc tribe. They raided the upper town but the graves beneath where protected by some of the most igenius traps ever build and thus they gained little. Soon they journeyed on to better places. And thus the once so grand necropolis stood empty.
Decaeds later, in a much darker age, the dwarven kind once again looked upon Hammerfast, but this time not as a necropolis but as a much needed trade city.
The humans could provide food for the famin plagued dwarven but a secured trade route was neccessary.
Upon their return the dwarven however saw something they did not excpect. Orcs where inhabiting their city. Unwilling to shed more blood in this sacret place they both came to the conclusion to co-habitate and for now the once writen compact still stands.
Slowly the dwarven realized something else. Many of the once fallen warriors still haunt this place. Ghost are a daily occurence in Hammerfast and they even have their own holiday: Siege Day
