LEGION HALL OF FAME 

The most decorated Legionnaires will have a chance at earning a spot in the Hall of Fame, located in the Legion’s Grand Hall. This is no easy feat, for a spot in the Hall of Fame is extremely difficult to obtain. A soldier who accomplishes something worthy of such an honor must receive a unanimous nomination by both Commanders. Afterward, the Grand Marshal himself determines whether the achievement is considered legendary and historical. If successful, the legendary soldier will be granted a spot in the Hall of Fame. Traditionally, a ceremony is held in the Legion Hall to initiate a legend who will be eternalized in the Hall of Fame.

DURGAR IREHEART

OFFICIAL HALL OF FAME CITATION:

Upon the eve of the Siege of Korvassa, Durgar left his humble job as a barkeep and once again took up his waraxe, marching his way to the frontlines of a desperate battle. As the battered defenders ran for their lives and settled atop the boats, they could see a single dwarf who stood in defiance of the Inferi. Because of this determination, the garrisoned forces in the city could flee without a demon on their trail following.
 

UTAK IREHEART

OFFICIAL HALL OF FAME CITATION:
Utak Ireheart was unanimously elected King of the Dwarves after serving as Grand Marshal for six stone months, in which his deceptive tactics and bloodthirsty style led the dwarves to victory in five wars. The most well-known of these is the Three Day’s War, where Urguan reigned victorious over all of Humanity including the Holy Orenian Empire and the Warnation of Krugmar. After Utak was elected, the military apparatus was altered, so that Utak could still find himself on the frontlines of every battlefield, leading the Dwarves to glory himself. He proclaimed a honor war with the Warnation Krugmar, which led to a crippling defeat for the orcish people, ensuring the dwarves were recounted in historic times as the most honorable descendants. Utak Ireheart truly goes down as one of the most capable Grand Marshals in our time.

GROR IREHEART
OFFICAL HALL OF FAME CITATION:

Gror Ireheart’s reign was inaugurated by inheriting a fractured Kingdom taken by surprise with the Slaughter of the Senate and coup of the capital Kal’Omilth by Clan Frsotbeard. The loyalist forces in quick succession evacuated the crown holdings retreating disorderly to the Grandaxe colony of Ta’Azmar. He reconsolidated the scattered loyalists into a formidable army leading them to victory in battle and recovering the capital of Kal'Omilth through the clandestine actions of Dwarf Team Six. Post rebellion, in a controversial act, he saw the removal of Clan Frostbeard to stabilize the Grand Kingdom. Following the expulsion of Clan Frostbeard, he began a deluge of treaties and diplomatic acts, reestablishing the Grand Kingdom as a strong entity on the continent of Axios, while also overseeing the reestablishment of the Legion of Urguan sparking a new wave of dwarven militarism. Centuries later while voyaging with the Grand Kingdom on the continent of Athera, Gror Ireheart killed a Stone Dragon with a pair of disruptor Hammers. Gror Ireheart goes down as one of the great saviors of the Grand Kingdom leading it through difficult times that required only the most stalwart of hearts. 

OYVIND FROSTBEARD
OFFICIAL HALL OF FAME CITATION:
Oyvind Frostbeard was promoted to the rank of Grand Marshal after serving dutifully as a Commander in the Coalition Wars under Grand Marshal Jorik Grandaxe & Gror Ireheart. In the ensuing restructuring of the Legion, many Legionnaires were mustered out with the expiration of their enlistment. Thus, left only with a skeletal force of veterans and regulars to sustain the massive swathes of lands conquered by the Grand Kingdom, he took to instituting major reforms within the Legion. Immediately he instated massive recruitment schemes centered around increased pay and steady work, followed by the shift of Legionnaires being separated into Divisions to a consolidated soldiery of clan militias with Commanders having equal jurisdiction over them all. His programs proved auspicious, keeping the Legion on steady footing by the end of his tenure. Unfortunately, his final goal to keep the Legion apolitical failed spectacularly with soldiers fighting while on duty over clan issues. Marshal Frostbeard himself was caught in this wave playing a massive role in support of the Frostbeards during the infamous event known as the Slaughter of the Senate.
