The Chronicle of Gromok Hergom


I ink these words for fear
that my once proud and mighty
Ogres will forget the events I
have seen in my long life. I
am known at the time of this
inking as Elder Gromok but I
was once a soldier of little
renown and status in the
mighty Rallosian Legions
under the command of Warlord
Murdunk. I was not raised to
be an Elder of my fellow
Ogres. My training was that of
a soldier and I concerned
myself only with the arts of
warfare. It is with reluctance
that I now bear the mantle of
Elder and the cause of that
reluctance is the same reason
that I ink this tale.
I was stationed at the



Fortress of Krithgor when the
ogre magi first opened the
portals to the Planes of
Power. Plans were quickly laid
and orders sent to our
fortresses and troops in all
corners of Tunaria. A large
invasion force of Ogres,
Giants, Orcs, and Goblins
gathered at the newly opened
planar portals. At the time I
felt disappointed that my
orders were to remain at
Fortress Krithgor, that
disappointment quickly turned
to anger when I learned that
the invasion failed, and
although Warlord Murdunk
survived our losses were
great.
Some time passed before
news reached the Fortress
of Krithgor that a second
invasion was being



orchestrated. Rumors circled
like hungry buzzards over a
field of carnage concerning
the plans for this second
invasion. It was even said
that Rallos Zek was to lead
the campaign with Warlord
Murdunk and the most
renowned champions of
the Giants, Orcs, and
Goblins by his side. Once
again my orders were to
remain at the home front
to defend the women,
children, and elderly
citizens of the Rallosian
Empire.
It was not long after the
invasion forces of the
Rallosian Legions once again
passed through the portals to
the Planes of Power that the
home front too became a place
of battle, slaughter, and



glory. Mortal disciples of
deities opposed to The
Warlord, Rallos Zek, attacked
the citizens and fortresses of
the Rallosian Empire on
Tunaria. Our enemies fought
valiantly, and the resulting
battles were the most glorious
I was ever to behold. My
weapons and armor were
stained with the blood of
our foes, and our children
and elders kept safe within
our impenetrable strongholds.
Messengers passing through
the Fortress of Krithgor spoke
of the victories of the legion
units led by Rallos Zek,
Warlord Murdunk, and the
Generals Tallon and Vallon. It
was said that the Rathe
Council, the twelve rulers of
the Plane of Earth had been
captured and forced to Norrath



where they were being executed
by Murdunk and his Generals,
that mountains burst from the
earth where the gods fell and
that the dying tears of the
fallen gods formed a cold,
deep lake between the newly
risen mountain peaks.
