Battle of Burakkhelig

Rilirthad VS Akthol-Tharag

In the Battle of Burakkhelig, an Akthol-Tharag army was surrounded. Their forces were crumbling under the assaults of Dao, earth archons, stone giants and other earthen monstrosities of Chaos. Seeing nothing but imprisonment or death before them, a gallant bayonet charge by the Iron Fusillers gave them time to complete their prayers to Danzar-Khâl. On 28 Prey 1703, in violation of the Mandate of the Heavens, Danzar-Khâl answered their prayers. A brilliant hammer glowing like the fires of Merioss crashed down from the clouds, leveling a hill called Burakkhelig on which the dwarves were fighting to their last. A crack of a hundred lightning bolts echoed through the valley sending up a cloud of dust and rock that pulverized dwarves and Rilirthad. The Rilirthad hordes suffered the worst, with more than two thousand of their troops plummeting into an expanding crevice. Their network of subterranean passages leading up to and under the battlefield collapsed, killing thousands more.

King Gollaium and the artifact Grongak's Pick were destroyed by the might of Danzar-Khâl. The Divine Hammer of Danzar-Khâl shattered the dwarven artifact and released such untold energy that it created the Delvarhaast chasm.

This divine event ended the Battle of Burakkhelig; but the Rilirthad continued their war against the dwarves (c.f. Eradication War) in other areas.
