100 years ago giant raiders swept down from the western mountains and crushed and pillaged several of the villages closest to the foothills and gradually began to press deep into the Uldaar Peninsula driving the desperate survivors to seek refuge with the other semi-nomadic tribes. Many of these people where forced to plead for help from tribes that they had currently been at war with whereas others where forced to share already sparse resources. Eventually the tribes begun to fight amongst themselves, and what the giants didn’t pillage, the tribes themselves squandered. Eventually one of the larger tribes saw the folly of there brethren and knew that it was only a matter of time before the giants broke there defenses. Bero, a great warrior gathered his most trusted warriors and crept into a nearby giant encampment. The giants, belligerent and sure of there superiority, never expected the small band of warriors and where quickly dispatched in there sleep. This tactic gained the small band of warriors great fame within there tribe, however the giants, now fearful of the mysterious giant slayers began to take notice.
The leaders of this tribe begain to grow fearful of Bero’s tactics and where worried that it would only enrage the giants and spur the giants to increase there raiding and killing. To this end, the tribe elders sent a small group of warriors to the Dwarven fortress city of (currently un-named) to plead for assistance.
