History

Age of Myth

The Godwrought Isles, one of the Nineteen Wonders of Chamon, are created by Grungni after he was freed from bondage by the God-King. Grungni gifts each of these perfectly straight islands to one of his clans of worshipers, which include Gholemkind, Humans, and Duardin.[1a] The clans of these three races prosper from the minerals they mine from their new homes.[2b]

Grungni's many wonders ensure that his followers live in prosperity and peace for eighty generations, though not even the Great Maker could forge civilizations that were immune to greed. Eventually Chamonite is found in abundance in the central regions of the Godwrought Isles and it swiftly becomes the basis of industry and economy in the Isles, used as both a currency and in every forge. The Gholemkind clans of the western Isles are among those who prosper the most from this lucrative substance.[1a]

Tribal federations and gleaming empires form among the Human, Duardin, and Gholemkind clans of the Godwrought Isles. Many of these compete, and even war, with one another for control of deposits of Chamonite, oftentimes strip mining the lands they conquer.[1a][2a]

Age of Sigmar

During the Age of Sigmar Gholemkind were a common site on the Sky-port of Barak-Urbaz.[3a]

Religion

The Gholemkind clans of the western Godwrought Isles were worshipers of Grungni, who originally gifted the isles to them and the neighboring Human and Duardin clans.[1a]
