  1. [!] Deep in the halls of the library, a robed Remembrancer smiles as he watches a new generation of learned scribes write and publish their works.
  2. Future DLC, coming soon to a store near you!
  3. Sat atop a grassy hill were a pair of dwarfs, their gaze on the sun that was due to set on the horizon. One was younger, his tears running down his cheeks as he quietly sobbed in a hunched position. He wore the garments of an Ireheart, fur pelts and deep green marks that decorated his skin. The other was much older, wrapped in brown robes with small patterns of golden linen interwoven along the fabric. “’ow ken ah do it...’ow could ah jus’ leave evereh thin...ah shouldn’t ‘ave med t’is blood oath” The Ireheart spoke in between sobs, hands covering his face. “Its too late now my dear boy, you’ve made your choice” “have you ever regretted killing another life?” Durgar asked in curiousity, brown eyes lingering on the mans yellow one. “Aye I did and I’m not proud of the deeds I’ve done. So I promised myself to never wield another weapon again...” His tone was gravelly and steady, carrying a sense of ease as he continued to speak. “This is a perfect opportunity to retake your clans honor in places far beyond the borders of the mountains...” He raised his sleeve, a grey hand pointing to the open road that softly called. “Don’t look behind you, instead look forward and fulfill your oath...move on from this dark chapter and turn the page to something more” Listening to his words the sobbing dwarf sniffed his sorrow away and with a renewed vigour, he gazed down at the stone brick that formed the path to his redemption. “Kazrin” He placed down his crossbow at the cave dwarfs side, a small smile appearing over his features. “thank you...” It wouldn’t be for many months until a letter came at Kazrins doorstep. "I am headed to the front lines of Al-faiz. Should anything happen to me I wish you to know that your wisdom has not gone unheard." – Durgar Ireheart For the next several hours after the battle, the halls of the Remembrancers fell silent. No quill upon parchment or the feint whispers of readers audible as a clear ringing of steel echoed from the library. There in the deep end of Kazrins forge, stood the elderly Starbreaker, hammering away the softly hued metal that bent with every swing. His blows were a steady rythm, yet they held the fury of the elder as sparks flung from the anvil. Rested aside his forge was a small crossbow, its body illuminated briefly by the embers of orange that flickered. Finally, the rhythm ceased as the Cave dwarf raised his newly forged axe, the edges of the blade still glowing orange. “Seems my promise will have to wait...”
  4. It’ll be up within the following week if anything, so I’ll keep you in tabs to keep yeh updated on it when it comes.
  5. As Kazrin read over the post, he wonders what the sages are smoking for their supposed visions. “damn they killed off the very founding father of an entire race in the second paragraph” He stroked his beard and shook his head.
  6. [!] As you enter the dwarven library, you find yourself drawn to the allure of a book that laid open atop a lectern. It seemed rather old, dust riddling the parchment on which the dwarven letters were written upon. =-On the forming of Grandaxe -= In the ancient age before Grudgement and spite, the sons of Urguan were perhaps mightiest in lore and craft. Of the eight brothers of whom Dwain was the eldest, Bogrin was most renowned for fair trade and nobility amongst his mountain kin. As the great city of Kal’Urguan grew, so did the ambition of the elder brothers. Four clans in the beginning had left the halls of their father, and each had fled in one of the four corners of the known world. As the other three brothers took to the North, South, and the East, it was Bogrin who in his youth had traveled West towards the vast forests that stood there. It was during this time that the fiery dwarf had found humility of which the details of such a tale are written elsewhere. After the events of this story, he headed north where a small group of dwarven labourers had camped. It was here that the dwarves had set up a small village at the foothills of the great mountain chain, toiling their way to a prosperous village through new veins of ore and fresh lumber of which they traded with their kin in the west. As their wealth grew, so too did the rumours reach the ears of an orcish warband. The village continued to grow as more houses were made through the hills and more trees felled by dwarven hands. It was during this day, as Bogrin himself was chopping a tree, did the horn of Haefrun sound. As the dwarven men returned with haste to the village, they found the houses burning, the women and children routing towards the safety of the onlookers. Now, orcs of this time were honorable even when conducting raids, and Bogrin knew this. Gripping the handle of his axe, he barked out to the orcish chief who towered over his servants. Catching the gaze of the large black orc, he grunted and marched his way to the stout dwarf, a large cleaver brandished in hand. In return, did Bogrin step forward, both orcs and dwarfs gathering around them to see who would decide the fate of the village and its people. In that circle of onlookers did their steel clash, but for whilst a lumber axe was not fit for battle, such was the skill of Bogrin that it did not matter, matching each swing and blow with a parry or counter. For several minutes did their fight endure fueled by anger and desperation, until at last did the orc known as Gurgnash fall. As he knelt in defeat, his head hung low and body scarred, Bogrin took pity and gave the orc a chance to surrender, for such was the tradition of the dwarves of those days. The orc raised his head, his gaze leveling with the dwarf to equal height and at last he spoke in words that were harsh to the ears of the Khazamar. “You have defeated me by the rite of single combat, give me this death so that I may pass on honorably...” His voice was gruff, a pause in his words as he struggled to breathe and so Bogrin gave him his wish seeing the pain of a continued life. Seeing the death of their leader, the orcs withdrew from the village. Their bounty given back to the dwarfs who began to repair the wounds inflicted on both home and hearth. On the eve of that day after much work, did the dwarfs of the village cheer in honor of the battle and their leader who rested in the village square. As word reached the dwarven realms of the great deed of Bogrins folk and their stand against the orcs, so had the title of Grandaxe been bestowed upon him and his line ever after. Inspired by the story of Bogrin the Grandaxe and his defiance against such a foe, dwarven warriors began to take up axes instead of swords as a monument to this victory. As the millenia passed and the kingdoms of dwarves rose and fell, the battle-axe remained a constant in the shifting of military tactics and tradition. Today, the Grandaxe clan still carry this title with pride, knowing that it was their progenitor and his bravery that paved the way to one of the most known pillars of dwarven tradition. Mucho thanks to Fimlin Grandaxe for helping me with the story. Mahalo nui to Zezimus as well
  7. Warning: dwarven players may be suspected to fume and tilt on this post. Be advised.
  8. 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. “They know...”
  9. Somewhere in the aged halls of the Remembrancers sat the brown robed dwarf, Kazrin Starbreaker. Sitting comfortably atop a brown chair in his office, he mused over the students he had taught for the 100 years he has been High Remembrancer. “Thulin, Norli, Jorvin...Hekkaes, Balin, Balrog, Jurul, Utak, Bjor, Bryldryn “ A dozen names he muttered, each their own memory and stories given freely to teach. Not all were good, some were soured over the deeds they committed and yet, some still he was proud of. “Thorolf, Gronmil and Dhaen...” A small smile formed on his features as he kindled a pipe ablaze and sat back in his chair. Peering down in thought he remembered several decades ago as a smoke ring rose from his mouth and watched as the wisps faded away. ”Yeh should go en teach t’em, t’eyll nee’ t’e wise Kazrin to go en show em w’at it means t’e beh a dwarf” Norli said, standing by a pillar with his arms crossed and his hairline ever receding even then. ”evereh studen’ ah teach, alwehs forgets mah lessons. T’ere isn’t a reason t’e continue, ‘ave been at it for over 80 years nothings changed.” A rather bitter Kazrin spoke, grizzled and tired of all his work put to waste. ”It doesn’t ‘urt t’e try” Norli said, smiling even. “Ergh” Kazrin walked over to the trio of gingers that stood chatting at the entrance to the tavern. ‘one last time, I’ll try’ he softly muttered as he made his way to them. “OI!” He stood to his full height and narrowed his amber gaze to look upon them, naive, curious and young. “do yeh know w’at it means to beh a grandaxe?” Each of them shook their heads. “would yeh care t’e learn t’en? “ The three nod their heads and quickly walked over. “Good, per’aps you’ll make fine dwed afteh all” And so they sat around, with a listening ear and a careful eye, like the hundreds of dwed before them who sat by the High Remembrancer. “Bogrin, the first Grandaxe, spent time chopping wood for his kin. One day, a group of traveling orcs came upon his work and threatened him…” OOC: Well thats the three of you then, I can say all three of you were very memorable students when it came to my lectures. Always paying close attention and actually enjoying my rambles. Seeing as your the last of em, its sad to see you go but I’m comforted that you and Dhaen will finally be happy. It has been a fun few months Dhaen, from listening to me ramble in voice chats about the lore to comparing the yee haw accents of Cordial and the texan. After reading this post, I’m very proud to see one of my stories made it in and that Dhaen the character turned out somewhere. For once, its good to see a person leaving the dwarf community in a more positive light. Till next time – The best pineapple man.
  10. Kazrin gave a round of applauds as he welcomed the old guild back into a glorious age.
