In the Year of the Dancing Daggers, 648 DR, King Grewe was the first to discover the ancient bloodforges of the Utter East. These ancient devices of war could mass-produce entire armies of golems, eliminating overnight the cost of mustering and maintaining armed forces. Within tendays, Ffolk across all the Five Kingdoms had discovered bloodforges of their own, and immediately burst into the Bloodforge Wars.
- King Grewe may be the same king of Konigheim appearing in the "Nuts and !Bolts" campaign of the Blood & Magic computer game, which introduced the bloodforges. The adventurers Garrulos and Wormskull presented this unnamed king with the Pearl of Power, which could also animate constructs.
