[[folder: Dwarves]]

The dwarves are preparing. The World's Edge Mountains are in unrest and several volcanos inactive for millenia have started erupting, an ill omen for the dwarves. In the wake of the End times, an assemble of the dwarven kings are called in Karaz-A-Karak by [[TheHighKing Thorgrim Grudgebearer]]. In the assembly they decide the course of action in light of the recent events, and shutting up their fortresses wins by little, finding opposition from Kings Ungrim Ironfist and Alrik Ranulfsson. Despite that, circunstances lead to some of them taking arms and marching to the exterior or the dephts of earth.

Consequently, while Sigvald rests next to Krell's skeleton in a stupor after defeating him, Throgg takes his revenge for all the insults. A giant club to the head ends Sigvald's tale for good.

* VillainousBreakdown: Over an [[EvilIsPetty incredibly petty reason]] at that. During the End Times, Sigvald confronted and fought against Krell, who managed to slash Sigvald's face, disfiguring him. This drove him into a frenzy, which allowed him to overpower and kill Krell, but with his face permanently scarred, Sigvald collapsed and wailed in petty frustration and anguish over it. Unfortunately, Throgg made sure this was the last thing he ever did.
