The Ulrung is a Fyreslayer Lodge who maintained a number of magmaholds and vassal-keeps across the Prime Innerlands of the Realm of Shyish, before the Necroquake snuffed out their forge-fires and forced them into a life as landless refugees.[1][4a]

History

Age of Myth

The Lodge had begun late in the Age of Myth, the slayers having followed a trail of ur-gold into the Realm of Shyish. [1]

Ulrung took part in the Ghoul Wars and weathered the decade long Wailing Storm, standing against the Vampire alliance. Over the ages they expanded their underhalls, filling the Grand Vault with ur-gold. [1]

Age of Sigmar

In the Time of Tribulations the Great Gungron, the immense furnace at the heart of the Temple of Fire went cold, depriving the holds defensive runes of power. Then the furnace began to burn with necromantic energy.[1] The Ulrung were then forced to fight their way out of their own magmaholds, both those in the Ulrung Lodgelands of Stygxx and their capital of Ulfort in the Greyspears of Athanasia. Those who survived fled across the underworlds of Shyish, becoming grimnyn.[2b][4a]

As refugees they have become a grim people, even by the standards of Fyreslayers, as they wander across the Mortal Realms.[1a] Some among them have decided to leave Shyish altogether, migrated to other Realms to found new homes. While others remain, devise ways to retake the fallen Lodgelands.[4a]

When Awlrach the Drowner leads processions of Nighthaunt to converge on the Ulrung Lodgelands, with the intent of corrupting them into a font of Necromantic power, the outraged people of the Ulrung gathered their full strength to retaliate against this insult, calling upon other Fyreslayer kingdoms and trusted allies. None of the strongholds of Sigmar's Empire in Shyish responded to this call to aid, nor was a response expected in light of the strained relations that had existed between the Fyreslayers and the Free Peoples of Shyish, ever since a fyrd-army of Greyfyrd betrayed Lethis in favor of Nagash's gold. The war to come would be fought over the Valorous Sons, a trio of magmaholds made of volcanic glass.[4b]

Culture

Once the Ulrung held great pride in the knowledge that no foe, no matter how many times they battered their gates, or uninvited guest ever set foot in the Ulfort.[1] This changed dramatically when the Necroquake's aura snuffed out their fires and processions of gheists forced them to flee from their homes.[4a]

They are known for marking their beards, faces, and fists with the ashes of the dead.[2a]

Religion

While all Fyreslayers revere their dead, the sombre Ulrung have long had a reputation for taking their ancestor worship to intense levels. Through their Auric Flamekeepers they communed with hallowed forebears, deciding the future of the lodge based on what could be gleamed from these venerable ancestors.[4a]

Wargear

A flickering ember of the Ulrung's Master Flame survives, thanks to the endeavours of their surviving Zharrgrim, within a clutch of Fyresteel weapons. These blades, glow with eerie luminescence, cleave through ethereal matter with surprising ease.[4a]
