THE OLD GUARD OF URGUAN & THEIR PUPPETS

Recommended Posts

 

THE OLD GUARD & THEIR PUPPETS

 

The name of Urguan has been misused for years by a few dwarves that still hold influence over the kings and the people, that influence has been considered as toxic for many years and has now cost us our most important relic and tradition : the Hammer of Urguan and runesmithing.

 

If a dwarf wants to climb up the ladder in the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, he must befriend the old guard, he must try his best. Those who hangout with the Old Guard will usually end up as your next king, just like Jorvin Starbreaker, do the work, befriend them and you shall be named king.

 

Those dwarves do not care if the common dwarf has nothing to do,  has to defend their bidding or has to plead for relics. They want to keep their influence over you at all cost. They would rather leave than see their candidate win, a truly toxic attitude.

 

This system has to come to an end, those dwarves shall be identified publicly, their toxicity exposed to all dwarves because in the end they do not care about the common dwarf, they care about holding their power over them.

 

They shouldn’t be trusted when they led to the fall of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan many times in the past, they do not want to work to improve the kingdom. We shall unite and leave the Grand Kingdom for a better one, something that we all agree will represent us.

 

What led to the victory of Kaz’Ulrah is simply happening again and there is nothing that you will be able to do to stop it because you do not have the dedication anymore. 

 

THE OLD GUARD

 

Zahrer Irongrinder

 

Rumored to be a member of the undead after being supposedly killed by a group of Orcs, the old leader of Arcadia is simply a harborer of relics as I have personally seen and lived on Arcadia, he personally has the scales so searched by the Goldhands and many other relics. This dwarf has lost the tradition of runesmithing. He is to take the blame as why The Kingdom of Urguan fell to Kaz’Ulrah as he was the king. He is to be remembered as a failure when he is publicly hanged in the halls of Urguan.

 

Dwain II Irongut

 

Strangely, this dwarf cannot let go after building his family outside of the kingdom and completely ignoring us, the small influence he had over The Hammer of Urguan is now gone just like his clan’s legitimacy in the future. A true failure to his dad’s name, he is to be remembered as a complete flop after he is publicly executed.

 

Fili Grandaxe

 

The one who surrendered the Kingdom of Urguan to the other forces, what can you say, he was used by Zahrer Irongrinder to surrender as Zahrer didn’t want his history tarnished by such a fact. His influence is low, a few dwarves know of him, he still thinks his opinion matters enough to show up to the kingdom’s meeting when he is mostly ignored and never around the kingdom. Also suspected to be harboring relics of Urguan. Truly a useless dwarf that should be imprisoned for accepting to surrender.

 

Fimlin Grandaxe

 

Just like Fili, the washed up dwarf that he is, Fimlin Grandaxe has never achieved anything great for the Grand Kingdom Of Urguan but when it has been a long time, history gets mixed up and re-written it actually looks like Fimlin has influence but he doesn’t. He will still show up to the occasional meeting where he can give his opinion but still, he is never there, he doesn’t know what the common dwarf experiences.

 

THE PUPPETS

 

Norli Starbreaker

 

Already rumored to be the next king by the old guard because he was allowed to flourish while others couldn’t, this dwarf is nothing but another of the puppets put in place by The Old Guard. If it wasn’t for the Old Guard, this dwarf would have probably never achieved anything else but the bare minimum. Just like I told you earlier my child, you must know to play the game if you want to be king. 

 

Jorvin Starbreaker

 

While he was doing nothing in the positions he held, this dwarf knew how to play the system just like his other clan member, he joined and befriended The Old Guard. He held positions in the kingdom, while looking good for his candidacy as King, he never achieved anything else beside the bare minimum. Once put in a position of power, he became stressed, he started to seclude himself, why ? Because he was never a proper candidate to be king but rather another one of the puppets.

 

Dimlin Irongut

 

Another dwarf that was being told what to do by The Old Guard and that had to pay the price of being shamed for the rest of his life. Hammerless, he shall try to convince us that he did good for us but his name is truly tarnished. “Dimlin, keep this there and it will be fine”, he was told but he still lost it because The Old Guard has truly lost touch with our lands, they do not know what is happening. Always put in place in positions of power while there is a better candidate, he shall lead you to battle missing one arm. 

 

Darek Irongrinder

 

Another dwarf that secludes himself with The Old Guard, washing their feet and doing various tasks for them. Always present to take his assigned position by the Old Guard when there is a new kingdom, he will always set-up a few things here and there before becoming absent. It is rare you can see him travel through the halls to ask him to build something and rarely will he build what you are asking him.

 

Dwalin Irongut

 

The one who is supposed to be enforcing the rules written by someone else. Another puppet that has played the game just like everybody else. Considered a candidate of last resort by the Old Guard, he should become king if the influence of The Old Guard is truly menaced. What can you say, he is trying to be like them. Always absent and without knowledge of the day-to-day matters of the kingdom, he holds this position for dear life while there could be something better done.

 

Kazrin Starbreaker

 

A new player to the game of The Old Guard, Kazrin seems to be the new puppet put in place. He truly has started by befriending the puppets before coming one himself. Slowly he is turning into a fully pledge player, if you see him king one day, I will have warned you.

 

Our Path Forward, Together

 

The toxicity of The Old Guard will come to an end rather abruptly, a new dwarven kingdom will be created for those seeking something better : a kingdom that gives opportunities to every dwarf there is, a kingdom that has better communication but most importantly a kingdom led without a shadow council.

 

This kingdom will be built upon camaraderie & support of each other. The Old Guard has truly never learned of their mistakes, they will be replaced with us, the dwarves of the new age. Do not be mistaken, we will take land upon Arcas and make a stand against them.

Uldraek Goldhand would hear the news. The elder dwed, Clan Lord of Clan Goldhand, descendant of both Ulrah and Tungdil, Grand Merchant of Urguan, Lord of Kal’Ikrun, Protector of Kaz’Ad’Hekakes would send an order to his right hand [redacted] to turn the points of all the chemical warheads the Goldhand Clan developed to defend the descendants from the inferni, towards Fort Uno and Irongrinder farm. The dwarf would slowly sighOi will take me relics back.

High Preceptor Norli Starbreaker sits at his desk, scattered papers dimly illuminated by only an ornate carved candle. He sighs as he signs a report on suspected heresy, and sets it to the side. His exhausted eyes read over the next paper on his desk, letting out a deep grunt as he reads the title.Oh ****, they know.”

Dwain gasps deep in the depths of the mining tunnels. He felt a chill run down his spine. How could someone know he pulled the puppeteer strings so far away. Dwains ability was unknown to most and some gossip about it but.... no ones ever been able to tell.

 

"How could Charles know....."

 

 

Then Dwain woke up from his nightmare. His simple bed within Irongutia, covered in sweat. "Dam noightmares"

Kazrin read the post, in a comfortable silence within the dusted halls of the temple library. He made a facial expression akin to the days of old, when he remembered when Dreek got shanked by Charles himself.

Balrog thinks that most of Urguan needs to pay for war reparations due to Urguan’s desire to destroy a lonely nomadic tribe of dwarves out in the frozen wasteland, a place where no dwarf had gone before. ”Puppets? Ah think nae... none of t’em be smart enoug’ teh even come up wit’ a single wise plan...”
