World Of Dwarfcraft
Say hello to the residents of Dun Morogh
Blizzard has updated its World Of Warcraft website with news of Dun Morogh, a snowy stronghold for the Ironforge Dwarves. The mountains provide the dwarves "with a limitless supply of ore and stone for their ambitious engineering endeavours," we're told. It sounds like they've had a bit of a rough ride though.
"Not all is at peace in Dun Morogh. The Dwarves' insatiable digging at the Gol'Bolar Quarry unleashed a menacing tribe of Rockjaw Troggs from their subterranean den. While the massing Trogg invasion looms over the lands of King Magni Bronzebeard, the Frostmane Trolls have taken advantage of the distraction to attempt to reclaim their ancestral home. Life is harsh in the white-powdered mountains of Dun Morogh, but what the Dwarven people lack in height they make up for in heart and valour."
All of which sounds interesting, and not at all like Lord Of The Rings. Blizzard has also released a selection of screenshots showing off Dun Morogh for potential visitors. Although given the early state of development and lack of a release date, the dwarves will have to remain hearty and valorous by themselves for a lot longer.
