Background

In the year 1982 of the Third Age, the Longbeards made their final stand against the Balrog known as 'Durin's Bane'. The brave dwarves that defied the terror on that day would be he saviors of their people, but the fate of their kingdom was certain.

Objective 1

King Náin I has ordered a final stand against the Balrog Durin's Bane.

You must attempt to defeat the ancient fiend, and if that fails, survive!

Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Good, you have arrived. King Náin is ready to begin. Come with me."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "We have begun evacuations through the caverns to the north and out the East Gate."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "The path is not well-travelled, but we must keep our people from harm when the fighting begins."
Nafni says, "Commander, did we rescue the survivors from the lower halls?"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Anyone who did not make it in time... is lost. Much of the kingdom has already fallen."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "This will be our final stand, Nafni. Focus on the battle to come, or else every life lost will be for nothing."
Nafni says, "Aye, Commander..."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "The other routes into the Second Hall have all been closed."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "On the King's order, the soldiers below will force the nameless creatures to the other end of the Second Hall."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "There they will meet our axes."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "The unearthed terror will surely follow."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Let it meet the might of Durin's Folk on OUR terms."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "King Náin has sworn vengeance for his father, and will not falter!"
Nafni says, "I am with you, Commander, but can such evil truly be slain? I have seen that terror with my own eyes!"
Sverri says, "Nafni, give no voice to such things! We must try!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Aye, we must. For Khazad-dûm."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Take position, soldiers. May the First Crafter smile upon us."
Prince Thráin says, "Father, forgive my insolence, but this is folly! You heard the Elves."
Prince Thráin says, "What hope have we of defeating one of Morgoth's own minions?"
Prince Thráin says, "They say it can change form! That it bends flame and shadow to its will!"
King Náin I says, "We have no choice, Thráin! It would shame our folk to let the kingdom fall without a fight!"
King Náin I says, "The time has come. If I fall here, take the ring of our clan and guide our people to safety."
King Náin I says, "Lead them with honour, my son."
King Náin I says, "Soldiers of Durin's Folk! Hear me!"
King Náin I says, "It has been one year since my father was slain by the fiend we now call 'Durin's Bane!'"
King Náin I says, "On that day I swore to avenge him, though I die in the effort!"
King Náin I says, "And we will avenge him, and retake our kingdom! For the honour of my father, and of every Durin before!"
King Náin I says, "Sound the horn and let it begin! Baruk Khazâd!"
Sverri says, "Khazâd ai-mênu!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Khazâd ai-mênu!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "The horde approaches! Ready your axes!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Beasts of the deep. They flee before the horde."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "The nameless horde has come!"
King Náin I says, "Fiends of fire and darkness! You will fall before us!"
King Náin I says, "Enough of this! Where is Durin's Bane?"
Nafni says, "It comes!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Is that...? Can it be?"
King Náin I says, "It matters not what form the terror takes! Charge!"
Sverri says, "By Durin's Beard!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Hold the line! Ware the cloud!"
King Náin I says, "We are not here to fight this storm-reek!"
King Náin I says, "Face me, vile one, and answer for my father!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "King Náin! No!"
King Náin I says, "Have at thee, fiend!"
Sverri says, "Nary a flinch!"
Prince Thráin says, "Father! Run!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "No! We stand no chance against it! We are mere gnats to that monster!"
Prince Thráin says, "Father... he is gone..."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Prince Thráin! Listen to me! You must lead our people now! Sound the retreat!"
Prince Thráin says, "Ah! You are right, Commander. Nafni, Sverri, come with me. We must save our people!"
Prince Thráin says, "Commander, take these heroes and hold the line for as long as you are able."
Prince Thráin says, "If we cannot get everyone out, this will be the end of the Longbeards!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "I will see it done, Prince... no, King Thráin."
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "This fiend will know the might of Durin's Folk!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "This is it, dwarves! All we must do is survive! For Durin! For Náin!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Retreat! He will slaughter us!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Fall back!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Blast! He keeps pushing us back!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "We are quickly running out of ground!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "We have no more time. Go, cross the bridge and live! I will hold him off!"
Commander Formáth Firmhand says, "Come taste my axe, rohkiz!"

Completed: The Fall of Khazad-dûm -- Tier I

Prince Thráin says, "The evacuation is complete. Where is Commander Formáth?"
Prince Thráin says, "Ah. He did not survive. Later we will sing of his valour. Remember too those who died with him, and..."
Prince Thráin says, "Father... I will obey your final command."
Prince Thráin says, "Durin's Folk, draw nigh and hear me."
Prince Thráin says, "We dwarves are all who remain of proud Khazad-dûm."
Prince Thráin says, "This is no easy decision, but our great kingdom must be abandoned. We cannot stand against that mosnter."
Prince Thráin says, "Perhaps one day we will muster a force strong enough to oust Durin's Bane... but not today."
Prince Thráin says, "Many trials await us in the years ahead, but I swear this to all of you: the Longbeards will find a new home and thrive once more."
Prince Thráin says, "May the First Crafter grant me the strength and wisdom to be the leader you need and deserve!"
Evacuating Longbeard says, "He is still a boy..."
Evacuating Longbeard says, "How can one so young lead us in such a time?"
Evacuating Longbeard says. "If only Náin had not thrown his life away..."
Nafni says, "I am with you, my King."
Sverri says, "Aye, as am I! Let us work together to find a new future for the Longbeards."
Nafni says, "We must first find a new home. Dwarves thrive not as wanderers."
Sverri says, "The thought of walking for miles under the open sky makes me anxious."
Prince Thráin says, "Yes, you are right, Nafni. Hmm..."
Sverri says, "Perhaps we could return to Gundabad?"
Prince Thráin says, "Nay, if we could not hold Khazad-dûm, neither can we break the Orcs' grip on that place."
Prince Thráin says, "Perhaps one of our old holdings in the Grey Mountains. And if not there, someplace new..."
