The Battle of Atarisundri was a battle between The Gnome Empire from the north of Kandarin and goblin tribes from the south.

At some point in the Fourth Age the elves living in Kandarin went west, leaving a lot of land open for conquest.[1] The gnome and goblin forces eventually met, resulting in the Battle of Atarisundri.[2] Despite the bravery of the gnome soldiers, it was clear that the gnomes would not be able to win against the sheer power of the goblins.[3]

The gnome king, Healthorg, and one of his advisors, Glouphrie the Untrusted, devised a plan to trick the large goblin army facing them.[4] Using his knowledge of optics and light magic,[5] Glouphrie conjured an illusion of several giant tortoises, knowing the goblins would be scared of them.[6] Upon seeing this illusion the goblins fled in fear, resulting in victory for the gnomes.
