In the First Epoch, the forested hills of Gorahrigir saw the rise of two great coastal cities, Irthorn and Thithak. Into the Second Epoch, faced with the growing might of neighboring civilizations, they looked for unification. Jockeying for power, hill giant chieftains in these cities and across Gorahrigir marshaled armies of ogres, goblins, and others against each other. By the end of this War of Gorahrigir (1467 - 1472), they were unified under Chieftain Oathundor.
On 12 War March 1472, Chieftain Oathundor became the first monarch of the Kingdom of Oathundor. Claiming to be descended from Grolanter, the line of Oathundor is an unbroken dynasty four centuries old. Heavily influenced by the Church of Primus, the government is focused on mercantile and mercenaries ventures over direct war. Most of the kingdom's people have long relied on the area's river, fjords and seas for sustenance.
Oathundor is an empire ruled by hill giants. It is home to Piamauza and Kriistvrii, distant descendants of empires that was once battled it out in the Burn Wars. The hill giants are viewed by other nations as the muscle, while the thinking is done by the Piamauza and the Kriistvrii.
Oathundor is known for its rowdy mead halls. These are huge places filling the bottom levels of the empire's King Barrows. There are four of these places, each the resting place of a former Oathundor king. The upper levels of these 500' diameter edifices, with levels above the surface and below, are labyrinths which are used to test those with the skill to bypass traps, giant vermin and other hazards. At the end of this is the Dead Kings Treasury; a generous reward collected for entertaining the mead hall's drunken onlookers.
