Description

Skorgrím Dourhand is a Dwarf-lord who long ago lusted for immortality, such that he sought to steal the relics of the Elves of the refuge of Edhelion with the help of his people, the Dourhand clan. His mad bid for power was stopped only by the sacrifice of Talagan Silvertongue, who brought the library of Edhelion down upon them both.

About 600 years later, at the end of the introduction quests for dwarves and Elves, Skorgrím was resurrected by the evil Gaunt-lord Ivar the Blood-hand at Skorgrím's Tomb as part of the wraith's own fell plan for Ered Luin. Later in the Epic story-line, Skorgrím will appear in quest instances in Rath Teraig, and in a Brigand camp in Bree-land. He makes a final appearance at Gabilazan in the Misty Mountains where he eventually is defeated.

Lore

Skorgrím Dourhand is descended from ancient dwarf-lords who ruled one of the great kingdoms of the Blue Mountains, a realm that has long since fallen into ruin. His people became scattered and declined in number, but poverty and dishonour bred within them a great greed and lust for power. When the Elves of Mithlond founded the Refuge of Edhelion, in the Blue Mountains, Skorgrím sought to rob them of their relics and treasures. He rallied the remnants of his people and laid siege to Edhelion. Worse yet, he had paid Goblins and Trolls to assist him...something of which no honorable Dwarf would conceive. His evil ways brought him to ruin, though Edhelion was also lost.
Six hundred years later Ivar the Blood-hand, a Gaunt-lord, a vile necromancer from the First Age, summoned a fell spirit which entered the preserved corpse of Skorgrím and raised it as a wight. The dark realm of Angmar used this creature to turn the Dourhands entirely to evil, leading them to believe that the creature was indeed Skorgrím reborn, to lead them to wealth and glory. Now the Dourhands serve Angmar, under the rule of the creature they know as Skorgrím.
