Bael'dun is a group of dwarves sent by the Explorers' League to Kalimdor in order to make archaeological excavations. The group began to increase their military branch as problems with the Tauren occurred. The dwarves set their base at Bael'dun Keep near Bael Modan, but some went over to Mulgore.
- <Explorers' League> - leader of the Bael'dun
- <Bael'dun Chief Engineer> - head engineer
- - leader of the military part
The Bael'dun group is separated in two parts - the scientific and the military one. The scientific branch under Prospector Khazgorm cares for the excavations, while the military branch, leaded by General Twinbraid secures the digsites and fights intruders. Therefore the dwarves built Bael'dun Keep and stationed a Flying machine there.
Bael Modan was once a holy, ancestral birthplace of the local tauren, but the dwarves killed them all except Gann Stonespire. Here the dwarves use heavy explosives to break through even the most dense masses. The Bael'dun dwarves found here the Tear of the Moons, an ancient artifact, but General Twinbraid locked it away. Feegly the Exiled, exiled for trying to use the Tear, wants to regain it by ordering horde adventures to bring it to him.
