After the Cataclysm
Demogorgon was sighted dismembering Moradin and leading the demonic assault on Durn. Koschtchie, Alzrius, and their armies have conquered the surface of the world, and are currently waging war on the dwarven and allied defenders of Durn, who have been driven below the surface after Moradin’s demise. Ogremoch, with the help of Hraj and the tunneling machines of Vatarr Jakks, has destroyed many of the Abyssal Wurms, but Ogremoch’s battle with Shthruppasst, demon lord of the Abyssal Wurms, is proving hugely destructive, as the two enormous forces cause earthquakes and cave-ins as they roll their way through the Underdark of Durn. Mjoll and Miressë sent Drums-and-Thunder and Annabel Ilmater to assist. Annabel has proven hugely popular with the dwarves, and her healing powers are being touted as nothing less than miraculous. A vocal faction of dwarves have taken to calling her a saint and a savior, and some have even started to worship her as a sign of hope in the face of overwhelming odds. Just when it seemed things couldn’t get worse for Durn, however, the countless dead of the long war began to rise to attack the residents of Durn and the demonic invaders alike. The council of the Cerulean Sign made the decision to send Uthtaliit (with Benjamin assisting) to begin evacuation on Durn, deeming it fallen.
