Hey all, i've been googling and all i can find is a reference to a battle between the Dwarfs at Karak Zorn and the southlands slann. I was wondering if there's been any more fluff on the topic that i've missed.
This far i've found the reference in the dwarfs armybook timeline as well as the lizardmen armybook timeline, which both mention that there was a battle and the hold stopped sending out messages.
All i could find was this, posted by KU on another site.To be honest i doubt there is anything, it is just one thing to inspire you make your own fluff.Originally Posted by King Ulrik Flamebeard
Wiether they are all dead,stuck fighting lizardmen, in a siege or forgot to pay their phone bills it is up to you.
Hope that helped
I found this one the seigetower website about a Mordheim setting for this city. I am unsure of whether the fluff matches, but it might be useful:
The Dwarfs built the stronghold Karak-Zorn in the Southlands upon the snow capped peaks, surrounded by the green steaming jungle. The Dwarfs in the Old World thinks that the stronghold of Karak-Zorn has been lost to attackers, they havent been heard from in centuries and noone have been able to find a tunnel leading to the stronghold. The last words was that the Undeads had cut off the mountain roads and it was assumed that the Undeads had attacked or that the stronghold had fallen to the plauges of the skaven or in a war with the Lizardmen. The truth is far more sinister than a stronghold overran by Skaven or Greenskins. The stronghold was besieged by undead but they never attacked, isntead they had worked some foul magic and sealed the Dwarfs into their stronghold. As the time passed the Dwarfs realise that their resistance to injuries had increased, but this blessing was shortlived as clansmen would rise from mortal injuries and more and more workers drifted into a form of daydreaming.
After a century the stronghold was filling up with warriors who refused to die of natural causes or battle injuries, they wandered slowly through the halls saying nothing, reacting to little and seemed to be be daydreaming. Their features were pale and no blood was spilled when they were cut. They didnt care for their beard or hygiene and had to be tended by their family members. Other Dwarfs stopped eating normal food and lived only on the fallen enemies or rats that they hunted in the mining tunnels. Many of these Dwarfs were cast out of the stronghold for attacking and feeding on their comrades. Many Dwarfs took up the slayer oath and left the stronghold rather than remaining and endangering their comrades.
The nobles called a meeting and they all suspected that the answer lie somewhere among the ruins of the dead. The desicion was made to send several warbands out to find an end to this curse.
Hope this helps :ninja:

Hey.. I was quoted before speaking!! Woot! Anyway, that explains it in the GW fluff.
Gingerminja - I think that's more just a gamers slant on the background, as far as I'm aware in GW's offical stuff there is no details given except there has been no word from the city and no one has ever managed to find and recapture it. If indeed it needs recapturing.
Heh, thanks guys. I've recently been able to acquire a tomb kings army (only partially assembled) and i was just considering what i could do to theme it. I may just end up making a dogs of war cannon with an undead dwarf crew to represent the scavenging of Karak Zorn's ruins. There isn't enough heavy armor in the army to really get a good undead dwarf theme going.
I think Karak Zorn was supposed to be the Warhammer version of the City of Gold.
I'm not so sure of that Lioness, If Karak Zorn was supposed to be the city of gold (El Dorado) equivalent, it should be in Lustria and not the southlands.
The Southlands also has some South American roots, where do you think all the Lizardmen came from.
