Heroes of Khemer
Durgeddin Stonehammer of Clan Forkbeard
A fallen hero of the dwarves.
Durgeddin Stonehammer, also known as Durgeddin the Black was a dwarven fighter and smith and patriarch of the Forkbeard clan after the destruction of its ancestral home and its subsequent decline. Although many survivors of Clan Forkbeard fled for Northmarch, Durgeddin led a small group of followers to the northern peaks of the Kildrak Mountains, establishing themselves in a series of caves they called the Glitterhame, which would later become the realm of Khundrukar.
Despite Durgeddin’s fervor and his followers’ loyalty, Khundrukar fell to an orc horde under his leadership. In his day, Durgeddin was widely believed to have been stockpiling magic weapons, and thus his home today remains a popular destination for adventurers (almost all of whom are never seen again).
