Death of Fundin

Death of Fundin
They say that Dwalin walked alone in the vast emptiness that was the eastern mines of Lucerne to find the body of his father Fundin. When he arrived the rumors say he found his father lying against a rock with an arrow in his chest. Seeing this sort of death it should have mobilized an entire land against them, but instead we talked.
Balin

The peaceful existence in the Dwarven realms of Karak Izor, and Karak Matron would end the moment Fundin the clan leader of Clan Durin was killed by a goblin archer. The eastern parts of the Lucernian Mountains had become known for being dangerous for Dwarven travelers but the minerals of the area still attracted the more daring of the Dwarven leadership, and miners. Fundin was one of these more adventurous Dwarves and he wanted the Gromil that was present in the east, and to get it he took a large force from his Thaig of Moria and moved against the eastern mines of which the Dwarves were ignoring had not been heard of for some time. While traveling in the eastern mines Fundin was ambushed alongside much of his company by a massive force of Goblins and the few that survived spoke of the Goblins being in their thousands. Before the death of Balin it was believed by most of the Dwarves that their holds were impenetrable, and thus their was a great deal of arrogance within their ranks. When the leadership of Karak Izor contemplated the death of Balin they preapred to move against the encroachment of the Goblins but they didn't understand that the Goblins had already become more then they could handle.
