Please tell us more about the Golden Eye!
About four thousand years ago the dwarfish clan of Aboralm found the rich hinge and the golden town of Umrazim in Orcland at Firunswall. Alone among the dwarf races, the dwarves of Umrazim used slaves for mining — captured orcs from around the Firunswall. Rich and powerful, Umrazim prospered for many decades. But the ancient curse of the dragon, which the children of Alboralm had carried in the form of an emerald from Ordamon’s crown, once again ignited gold greed and false pride. In order to avoid sacrificing any of their treasures to their god, the dwarfs of Umrazim even turned away from Angrosh and remained constant in their greed. The local geodes have extracted the emerald from the Ordamon’s crown into a lens through which one could look into the depths of the earth and see all the treasures. With the help of this “eye of gold” the treasuries of Umrazim filled even more and soon overflowed.
Around the time of the Second Dragon War, however, orc slave laborers, motivated by wealth, rebelled in the mines with the support of free orc tribes, eventually killing nearly all of the more than 5,000 dwarves abandoned by Angrosh in this cruel revolt. The mountain king Ardorag even sacrificed himself to Angrosch. After Umrazim fell into the hands of the orcs, it is widely believed that they took over a lot of knowledge from the dwarves and probably also developed the cult around the blacksmith god Gravesh. But the Golden Eye remained lost for thousands of years.
The traces of the fleeing dwarves under Aboralm II are lost somewhere in western and northern Aventuria — they probably just gradually perished. Only in a few remote hinges and mines in Orcland have descendants of the lords of Umrazim survived, but nothing remains of their former power. One speaks of the dull, degenerate deep dwarves who are said to live somewhere there. But the traces of the mysterious red dwarfs can also be traced back to Umrazim. The dwarves from Tjolmar also claim to be the descendants of Aboralm. The gold of Umrazim is still the target of many treasure hunters and adventurers to this day, and there are numerous legends about the gold eye in particular.
