History:
Ironforge is the ancient home of the dwarves. A marvel to the dwarves' skill at shaping rock and stone, Ironforge was constructed in the very heart of the mountains, an expansive underground city home to explorers, miners, and warriors. Before the Dark Iron Clan was banished from the city, eventually leading to the War of the Three Hammers, Ironforge was the commercial and social center of all the dwarven clans. Once dominated by the Bronzebeard Clan, the Dark Iron and Wildhammer clans have a strong presence in Cataclysm.

Relatively recently, Ironforge also became home to the Gnomeregan refugees. After the Third War, the gnomish city of Gnomeregan became overrun by troggs. Since then, a number of gnomes have settled in Ironforge, converting an area of that city to their liking, an area now known as Tinker Town.

In Cataclysm, Magni's estranged daughter Moira has returned, along with her infant son, the heir to the Dark Irons. She maintains a tenuous alliance with Muradin, the new Bronzebeard representative, and Falstad Wildhammer.
