Scales of War
Your tribe lived in the mountains west of the Dwarven city of Overlook and the fortress of Bordrin’s Watch. You and your tribe know that about once a century the orcs will attack the dwarves to try to break through the mountains, but they have not succeeded, ever, as far as you know. Recently, however, the orcs have become more organized. They threatened some of the goliath tribes in the mountains to join them or die. Some tribes have joined them. Yours refused. You were brutally attacked, with much of your tribe dead. The few living members have scattered.
You were taken prisoner and are currently being held in a dwarven monastery the orcs recently conquered.
