2012: With the [warhammertag128]VC[/warhammertag128] war over many Prospectors come to Hanagrim to seek Shelter and protection. Also at this time the Salyer King sends word of his decision for Naming the Mountian. The Mountain was named after Hanagrim to congradulate on his discovery, the Mountain is proudly bore the Name Mt. Steelfounder since Hanagrims day.
2013: Mt. Steelfounder Flourishes. Trade routes are formed between Karak Kadrin and Mt. Steelfounder. The Salyer King wishes the Garrison to be well maned so sends additional Troops to be positioned there.
2014: Trade ceases for a short while as caravans are being looted and attacked. Orcs and bandits are teeming in the Mountains. Hanagrim leads his forces out to attack certain bands.
2014: In some decisive victorys Hanagrim manges to drive the remaining Bandits and Orcs away from the main Trade Routs. Trade is opened once more with Karak Kadrin because of this.
2020: An Orc Warboss named Grim Beardtrimmer musters his warband and assaultes Mt. Steelfounder. The orcs are repelled at first but soon their Numbers become more evident so Hanagrim is forced to fall back into the Hold.
2020: Fortunately a party of slayers that where seeking an honourable death to the east stumbled upon the encamped orcs. They drove them away and their leader Kept Grim's head as a trophy.
2021: Hanagrim is rewarded for his services to the Slayer King. A Warhammer made of Kadrin Steel with an ebony shaft is ent along with a Rune encrusted Goldn armour. The Runes of Furnace and the Mighty Master Rune of Gromril are enscribed to this armour.

2051: The Men of the East camp on the Pass in there Hundreds.

2051: The Dwarfs are recorded as Numbering around 300 strong while the Men could of been twice that. The Dwarfs first responded to the Men with hails of crossbow Bolts, these inflicted many casualties on the invaders. As the Men ran up the slope they where met by Dwarf warriors clad in heavy Rainments, the Dwarfs shieldwall was strong and the Mne where unable to break through. After many gruelling hours the Mens morale finnaly gave in and they fled the way they had came. The Dwarfs held a pursuit, too many of there Kin had been killed to attempt such a risk. Durin was recored for besting 10 Eastern Men single handedly durin the day.

Ok what do you guys think?
Now I'll be adding to this over the course of it's completion. I'm hopefully going to mention a few Members of this forum in it's history (Those that are in My [warhammertag113]RP[/warhammertag113])
**EDIT** Just thought of how long this thread will become. Especially considering I'm Writing up to the Imperial year 2523.
