Cryos betrayed the Old Ten and took victory for himself, driving Ǻrth into 10,000 years of winter. The ancient reptile people, dire elves and deep gnomes fled underground to survive, but never forgot. The dwarves and elves clung tight to their hearths and furnaces, while man and orc simply endured the long cold darkness in small bands where Ǻrth could sustain them.
