The Forge War raged for 13 years, from 4369 AR to 4382 AR. Ordrik Talhrik was King Garbold Talhrik's cousin and closest advisor but also a cleric of Droskar. He controlled his cousin with addictive substances and made him cede power to the priests of Droskar.
Ordrik murdered his cousin and seized the throne in 4369 AR and attempted to create a theocracy. Generals loyal to the true crown fought to keep their kingdom, but they failed, and in 4382 AR, Ordrik declared himself theocrat and declared that all dwarves had to work in Droskar's name.123
