Further news of the Dwarfs and Greenskins emerges from the lands of Warhammer. Mythic's new MMO combines traditional online PvP and PvE with Realm versus Realm play, so everything you do will be a part of the major battles dominating the story.
Thunder Mountain, we've recently learned, stands exactly half way between major encampments for the bearded Dwarfs and the mean old Orcs and Goblins. The Dwarfs need the mountain not only to prevent the forces of the Greenskins from reaching their capital city, Karaz-a-Karak, but also for the mining of gromril for weapons and armor.
Meanwhile, the Orcs and co want the region simply to crush the Dwarfs in the excellent name of their leader, Waaagh!, to say nothing of the Reichert's Raiders - outlaws from the Empire - or the human Drakk cultists, who both get involved on Thunder Mountain's slopes.
The detail and story of Age of Reckoning 's conflict is getting more intriguing with every passing month.
