The greatest achievement to come from the alliance of dwarves and humans is quite possibly the taming and training of the mighty, noble gryphons. Following years of failed attempts, dwarven riders finally succeeded in gaining the trust of the aloof gryphons. Together with the humans, dwarven riders gave the greatest care, providing lodgings that would most closely resemble the gryphons’ aeries among Lordaeron’s Aerie Peaks.[1]
