Capital: Keldoram
Borders: Hills

Dwarf County covers the Hemdorkas Hills, and the towns are populated almost entirely by Hill Dwarves. The hills have lots of hobgoblins.

Hemdorkas Incursion

In early 1508 grell appeared in the Hemdorkas Hills in huge numbers.

Queen Kiara of Eridon, at age 19 in the first year of her reign, asked Nixiem, the Gold Dragon, to drive back the monsters. Nixiem refused, telling Queen Kiara this was her first big test as a queen and that she would never earn the trust or respect of her people if she didn’t do something about it herself.

After much arguing, Queen Kiara called her banners and sent General Mofkers to quell the grell.

The grell proved to be more troublesome than expected. Their abilities of levitation surprised the Eridonian forces and huge numbers of men died when swarms of grell descended from the sky at night onto unsuspecting troops camped below. This would prove to be a favorite tactic of the grell, one that gave them their best victories, and one that eventually would be their downfall.

The incursion lasted 9 months, and badly bled the kingdom. So many soldiers died in the first four months of the campaign with no sign of progress that barons began appointing new landlords to replace knights sent to war under the expectation that they would not return. Many knights returned to find their lands and holdings given away or repossessed. Soldiers that were paralyzed by grell, but ultimately survived, were shunned under the belief that grell reproduced by laying their young inside those they paralyzed but did not kill.

The source of the grell was never found, but after their defeat at the Battle of Highland Camp, where the Eridonian forces set an ambush for the grell, they fled back into the hills and vanished. The ambush, comprised of building a fake camp for the army while hiding bowmen and wizards on the back edge of camp, resulted in the deaths of many Eridonian soldiers by friendly fire. Some would go on to call the use of soldiers as live bait, and the indiscriminate fire into their ranks (which were swarmed by grell), a betrayal of the very soldiers sent to fight these monsters.

The Demon Invasion

In early 1510, a Demon Invasion struck the cities and towns of Shirebrook, Thornwood, Rainwood, Peatsburg, Anvil, Plainsview, Tassel, Misty Rapids, Newfort, Cauldron, Heatstroke, Limestone, causing them to fall. Eventually the Demons withdraw to Heatstroke, but the Kingdom of Eridon had taken a massive losses.

While the Demon Invasion did not reach the North West of the Kingdom, it greatly weakened Stromheim's hold on both Gade Isle and Dwarf County. Both considered secession in the aftermath.
