I am the Warlord Gorodan, called the Ashlord. I am to be your host this miserable evening. Ask what you will of me...but be warned. I am hungry and I am cold, and I have no patience for the foolish questions of little men. Now let us EAT!
— Gorodan - The Queen of Stone[3]

Gorodan Ashlord is one of the most powerful warlords of Droaam. Exiled from Xen'drik, Gorodan is now the leader of a clan of ogres and hill giants.[1][2][4]


Gorodon is still upset about his banishment, and finds the colder climate of Khorvaire irritating.[1] He has great respect for his fire titan ancestors, and seeks ways to emulate their power.[2]


Gorodon is a powerful warrior in combat, supplementing his giant strength and combat prowess with a small amount of fire magic. He generally fights with a fiery waraxe.[1]


Gorodan is originally from Xen'drik, but was banished by a fire giant king due to an overabundance of ambition.[2]

About 24 years ago, Gorodan travelled to Droaam with a small following of fire creatures, including azers, hell hounds and salamanders, as well as a few other fire giants. This proved sufficient to subjugate a local group of ogres and their goblin slaves, and he has ruled over a large fiefdom on the coast of the Thunder Sea ever since.[1][2]

When the Daughters of Sora Kell rose up to create Droaam, he begrudgingly swore allegiance to them, and received enough resources in return to allow him to build Vralkek, a settlement around his keep on the bluffs east of the Scar River. Despite this, his loyalty is not absolute, and he may work against the hags if he sees personal gains in doing so.[2] Gorodon is generally disinterested in events in Khorvaire, but is quite knowledgeable about Xen'drik.[1][4]
