People say that long ago the Misty Mountains used to be a quiet and deserted range. However, since countless deposits of precious metals and gems had been found, the peace and tranquility that once reigned has now disappeared forever. Who do the underground treasures belong to? Skillful Master-Dwarfs who discovered the first deposits? Powerful Giants, who had settled on the mountain tops long before the other races came there? Is it the Orcs, a fearless band of warriors, commanded by the will of the strongest ones? Or do they belong to the Sly Goblins – they are as clean as any others. Alas, a peaceful solution of the conflict is out of the question, and now the kings of the four races are gathering armies to start a merciless fight for resources. Indeed, not only are the control of vast treasures on the line, but also fame, respect, and honor. The player who will capture and develop the most profitable mines will be crowned as the King Under Mountains.
