Dwarves on the Bluff

  • Thorin upon noticing the worrying fact, immediately starts asking around for any clues of their whereabouts

  • *A group of five dwarves commoners have vanished from the bluff. They left no trace, even the most keen eye will only see dwarven footprints. *

  • A raucous drunken laughter can be heard echoing from the bluff as Korak lays eyes on the mighty wall the dwarves have worked on for years.

  • Upon completion of the walls on the Bluff, General Theaon can be seen having several kegs brought out to the Dwarven workers containing various Legion brews.

  • Upon completion of the project, dwarfs prepared a huge feast in celebration. The last piece of stone set on the walls signal the start of the long awaited construction of their new home at the Nars crossroads. Somewhere in the middle, Thorin after finishing his meal, prepares for a long trip to the Ironspur's Dwarven Hold to pay the last bit of their debt towards their kin for their support, to the west and initiate a new one, this time for the Aura Runedar.

  • General Theaon takes notice of the giant and ogre heads on stakes. Though he himself does not find the scene too tasteful, he nonetheless does nothing to disrupt the displaced Dwarves from their camaraderie.

  • At the Heroes bluff, not far from the Legion hall, A drunk and beardless dwarf covered in tattoos happily drives two long wooden stakes into the ground and unceremoniously slams the severed heads of a giant and a particularly nasty ogre onto each. The dwarf looks on them with grim satisfaction as he downs another ale and stumbles off towards Disin’s bar. Many mugs are raised and trophies passed around as the tales of victory are shared among the dwarven refugees.

  • Over the hills of the bluff, the sound of hooves can be heard, could it be? Yes! Labur is seen walking next to three of Cogan's deep rothes. Behind each of them is a small sled carrying kegs and brewery equipment. Once he makes it to the drawven refugees, he opens up a keg for all to enjoy. Hopefully this will be a sign of things to come when the dwarfs finally have a place to call home.

  • Thorin who stands by a wall section and checks for any spots that may need repair notice Korak's burst and watches quietly at the scene all the time until the latter strides off. He does nothing to stop the young dwarf from leaving. Instead, a content, darkened gaze is formed on his face. Those who know Thorin better will suspect that he wants such rage by his side nowadays against a possible threat from Duergars. And he will probably do nothing to contain it until all Duergars are dead or crawled back into their holes...

  • A menacing dwarf sits alone on the bluff as his kin work and drink in the distance. He drains another mug of ale and wipes his filthy arm across his broad hairless chin covered in tattooed runes that spread up his jawline. The corded muscles in his arms bulge as he hammers dents from his full plate armor. Every hammer strike is accompanied by a loud dwarven curse between his harsh and constant grumblings. The volume of his gravely voice continues to rise until he grabs his greataxe with one meaty hand and howls angrily at the cloudless sky. He straps on his armor as he continues to vent his unending rage.

    “Bearded Orc!? Oi will see yer fairy head mounted on the spike o’ me shoulder and parade it next t’the head o’ that filthy half-pig!”

    The well equipped dwarf stomps North up the Nars pass, grumbling and quaffing along the way with his axe in hand and a High Hold rucksack on his back.

  • Thorin Goldenaxe lately is being seen carrying around various scrolls and books while he walks in and out of his temporary room in the Troff Legion HQ. During the last months his expression has changed, becoming stern. When asked what is he working on, he gives the usual wanted answers except to the members of Council of Moradin.

  • Brumir hauls a wagon full of coal into the Bluff and approaches the Dwarven workers

    "We did it kin! Just as Thorin said we would! We blew a nice hole in tha gobber mines an' sent our minin' parties down thar ta collect wut we need. It'll nay be long afore we start workin' on tha new Aura Runedar!"

  • Word spreads out once more about dwarfs offering gold for the coal and in addition, this time Thorin offers 3 gold per one iron ingot. Requirement is to be brought the least in sets of 10s

    //Any PC who wants to sell iron can ping me in game or just pm me.

  • While the project on the bluff keeps going, Thorin spreads word that he is paying 1 gold piece for each 2 coal pieces any adventurer offers him.

  • Dozer Mantleborn quietly provides materials to the efforts. It is not anything but coordination for him. The real work comes from his family... his clan. They prospect up in the Giantspire. A tenuous connection allows Dozer to send out supplies, and his clan to send back ores and stone. The wagonmasters with their guards work their way through passes.... fighting sometimes, bribing others. But they always seem to eke there way through. And when the last of the wagonmasters pull into market to sell their wares, Dozer always stops by and insures that part of the materials makes it's way to the compound where all the dwarves work on the Hold. Praise Moradin!

  • Word spreads that the Troff Legion and the Council of Moradin will organize in the next few days the first out of many mining trips to come. Their goal is to gather as much ore as they can. Any trusted outsider (PCs who have interacted with and gained the trust of the relevant PCs) of the Council of Moradin or the Legion Troff members wishes to help them, should contact them and sign up. Reward in gold or other kind of treasure will be given to those who will participate according to their contribution. Trips will include a certain number of adventurers each time so priority will be given to those who sign up first.

    //Any player with a PC who is interested in participating and meets the requirements please contact in game or through pm PCs of the council of moradin or the Legion Troff.

  • Per General Theaon's request, barrels of Legion ale have been made available for those hard at work on the new walls.

  • The constructions in the bluff seem to be following an insanely steady pace, characteristic for the stout folks. Ale and lot of meat keeps coming their way. Lot of laughs and tales of memorable battle moves accompany the whole area, even drawing the amused attention of travelers. Some even say that dwarves brought back the good old days from the Dwarven Hold in the wider area.

  • Bruimr responds to Diadne

    "Should nay be an issue lass. We nay plan on bein' here forever, though we do expect our modifications ta be makin' tha region at lot more secure south an' east o tha Crossroads fer a long time ta come."

  • Diadne, who frequents the area, lets the Dwarves know Theaon has already granted her the area directly east of the Legion Hall, east of the graveyard near the river. It's the site for the new Temple of Kossuth.

    The temple construction will be overseen by a Dwarf named Ash, and former resident of the Dwarven Hold whose family was killed in the Duergar attack.
