The Sixth Age
The Tor at Hightower
During the wars that took place during the Third Age, a city that once stood on the site where Stormward now exist was once besieged by an army of goblins, bugbears and orcs, all fighting in the name of Gruumsh. When a great or powerful leader from the invading army was killed, his body was buried in a great tor – an artificial hill created to be his tomb. In the time that has passed since, all but the Tor at Hightower have been destroyed. It had been sealed by a huge rock, which had remained immovable for centuries, until an unusually powerful lightning strike broke the boulder in two, allowing passage to the tomb within.
After being rid of the ancient blight within, the Tor became the new home of M’dokk and his band of Kobolds.
