Home of the Dwarves, Orcs and Giants, Cliffreach has been a struggle between these powers for control. During the War of Eden, each species had a leader of the nation appointed to be part of the Hand of Eden.  After the war ended, the Alliance among nations were dispersed and the dwarves wished for control of Cliffreach. With the alliance diminished, the Dwarves took the Orcs by surprise and drove them into a deeper section of Cliffreach. Joining the alliance under Capital Eden, the Dwarves agreed only if they were permitted were access to the Dark Elven leylines. Capital Eden provided the dwarves access to the Dark Elven leylines, increasing industrial architect and weapon development.  The Orcs and Giants refused to join Capital Eden’s alliance as they stood by and watched when the dwarves destroyed there capital city years ago.
