Karak Eight Peaks, called Vala-Azrilungol by the dwarves is known for the eight immense mountains surrounding it: Karag Zilfin, Karag Yar, Karag Mhonar, Karagril (also called Silverhorn) in the east, and Karag Lhune, Karag Rhyn, Karag Nar, and Kvinn-Wyr - the White Lady - in the west. In the past, it was known as the Queen of the Silver Depths, and it was a great city of the Dwarfs. They spent many generations carving architectural wonders into the solid mountain rock from which the city was constructed. The Dwarfs tunneled deep into the roots of the surrounding mountains, excavating countless halls, galleries, plazas, mines and tunnels, shrines and temples, and tombs where mighty kings were laid to rest, and designed a great staircase called the Silverway that included approximately one thousand steps.
However, all things must come to an end, and eventually tunnels began opening that were not made by the Dwarfs. Endless hordes of Goblins, Skaven and many worse creatures stormed the depths of its mines by the hundreds of thousands, overwhelming the unsuspecting stronghold. The Dwarfs had created massive walls to keep out enemies at ground level, creating a fortress mightier than any other, but had never expected an attack from below. All of the underground excavations were lost to the invading Goblins and Skaven, and the Dwarven inhabitants were forced back to the highly fortified citadel and its underground tunnels at the heart of Karak Eight Peaks.
Karak Eight Peaks in the Age of ReckoningEdit
In the Age of Reckoning, the Waaagh! led by Grumlok and Gazbag attacked the remaining Dwarf warriors defending the stronghold, and with the help of Malekith's magic amulets, broke through the walls of the citadel and captured Karak Eight Peaks outright. The Greenskin horde has settled in the stronghold, claiming it as their own. ‘Eight Peaks’, as the Greenskins call it, is now the seat of power of the Bloody Sun Boyz, and the city bears little resemblance to the great Dwarf hold that it once was. The intricate wall carvings, and finely crafted gold and gromril decorations have been defaced with crude Orc scribblings and ragged banners, and heaps of refuse and dung have built up around the columns and walls of the underground vaults.
