In the mountains of Sendaar Jusk is a towering peak of basalt and obsidian. This fortified spire of rock is called Corungrall. The area was mined long ago by hobgoblins. These humanoids dug deep into Corungrall and ran into the territory of the Mîmêk. Thereafter the two bands warred over the tunnels for decades. The arrival of a blue dragon named Glagengrane changed the course of conflict in favor of the hobgoblins. The victorious hobgoblins then served two masters for a time, Glagengrane, and the hobgoblin chieftain Durgol. This joint rule lasted only several months. A heated argument between the two led to the surprising defeat and death of the dragon. Word of this great deed by Durgol spread far and wide. This led to the swelling of the ranks within Corungrall, as giants, goblins, and gnolls came to join up with the dragon slayer Durgol. The scales of the dragon were magicked by hobgoblin shamans and then honed into one of the finest suits of blue dragon scalemail of the Horgon Era. News of Glagengrane's death was picked up by the cult cell Whitefang. This cell of the dragon cult Vith Alok was the newest group to be added to the cult. Before they could be admitted as a full member of the cult, they had to raise a dracolich. A year after the death of Glagengrane, news spread from the peaks of Sendaar Jusk that a powerful skeletal dragon had slain Durgol and driven out the hordes of goblin-kind from Corungrall. Glagengrane laired in this honeycombed peak for nearly a century. The upper areas of Corungrall were garrisoned by Whitefang soldiers, priests of Tiamat and warlocks.

In 434, Corungrall was attacked by the adventuring group Platinum Six and several hundred bariaur mercenaries from Aldintir. The goal of the attack was to rid the area of Glagengrane's menace and to make a name for the Platinum Six. Glagengrane was killed and most of the Whitefang garrison wiped out. Corungrall then became the new headquarters for the dragon cult Vodrerak. Durgol's armor, the Scales of Glagengrane, were lost somewhere in the deepest parts of Corungrall.
