  1. ᛁᚱᛖᚺᛖᚨᚱᛏ ᛏᚱᚨᛞᛁᛏᛁᛟᚾᛋ Ireheart Traditions - The Bone Throne For centuries, the bone throne has been the seat of power for Clan Ireheart. Made out of dragon bones from the dragons Kjell slew, the bones signify the ancient lineage of the Irehearts and their reputation as warriors and dragonslayers. ORIGIN The origin of the bone throne is often misconceived as being a tradition made by Kjell himself, but this has been disproven. Under the leadership of Clan Father Utak Ireheart, he constructed the bone throne with the clan's most masterful craftsmen in order to display the glory of the Clan. Using the bones from the dragons Kjell slew, Utak created a throne worthy of the Ireheart Clan Father. TRADITIONS Head Collecting ᚺᛖᚨᛞ ᚲᛟᛚᛚᛖᚲᛏᛁᚾᚷ Regarded as ‘barbaric’ and un-dwarf-like, the head collection tradition is held sacred by the members of Clan Ireheart. Originated by Utak Ireheart and Bakir Ireheart, head collection became a tradition that is now practiced by modern-day Irehearts, displaying their kills and accomplishments on the bone throne. Often heads are to be a large variety, from a simple bandit who crossed a son of Kjell, to a Rex’s head. Weapon Collecting ᚹᛖᚨᛈᛟᚾ ᚲᛟᛚᛚᛖᚲᛏᛁᚾᚷ Similar to the head collection tradition, weapon collection is a relatively recent tradition, only originating a couple of centuries ago. As an Ireheart comes home from battle, they make a choice to either give up the weapon of their enemies or take it from themselves. Often Irehearts will display their defeated enemy's weapons at the base of the bone throne, where all may see the victories and accomplishments of the Clan. It is the tradition of the Clan Father to display the weapons of Kings, Rex’s, and enemy leaders closest to the throne. The Gauntlet of Kjell ᛏᚺᛖ ᚷᚨᚢᚾᛏᛚᛖᛏ ᛟᚠ ᚴᛃᛖᛚᛚ The gauntlet of Kjell is one of the relics from a bygone era. Crafted at the order of Kjell, it is forged from two ancient armor pieces that used to be worn by Kjell Ireheart himself. Forged from the armor pieces, The Fox’s boots, and The Vipers Helm, it received a blessing from the God of the Irehearts himself. It is believed that due to Kjells dedication to Dungrimm, Dungrimm swore to bless the sons of Kjell and those who wore the gauntlet. The gauntlet not only signifies Dungrimms favor but signifies the place of the Irehearts as being Dungrimms right hand.
  2. ᛃᛟᚱᚡᛁᚾ ᛋᛏᚨᚱᛒᚱᛖᚨᚴᛖᚱ A NOMINATION FOR HERO OF DUNGRIMM. ᛏᚺᛖ ᚨᛖᚾᚷᚢᛚ-ᛋᛚᚨᚤᛖᚱ I consider myself to be a great, devout and capable follower of Dungrimm, having served as a priest of his, alongside Grand Marshal and a host of other positions in Urguan. I have slain dragons, drakes and many other great beasts. Yet I cannot wrap my head around the insane feat of one Jorvin Starbreaker. This feat outweighs anything I have done, and I aspire to outclass such a feat one day. This feat, among other things has gained my utmost respect and my nomination. FOR His great deed of slaying an Aengul, I, Sigrun ‘Dragonslayer’ Ireheart nominate and implore the Kirkja Dverga to make Jorvin Starbreaker an officially recognized Hero of Dungrimm. Signed, Twice Grand Champion of Urguan, Dragonslayer.
  3. Year 127 of The Second Age 6th of May, 2023. ᛋᛁᚷᚱᚢᚾ 'ᛞᚱᚨᚷᛟᚾᛋᛚᚨᚤᛖᚱ' ᛁᚱᛖᚺᛖᚨᚱᛏ A MATRIMONY OF HONOUR AND GLORY ᚢᛚᚠᚨᚱ ᛋᛏᚨᚱᛒᚱᛖᚨᚴᛖᚱ It is hereby that Sigrun ‘Dragonslayer’ Ireheart and Ulfar Starbreaker come together to host a ceremony of the ages to officialize us two dwarves in marriage before the Brathmordakin. Let this matrimony be one of Honour and Glory, as two battle-hardened dwarves come together to officially seal themselves in marriage as consequence of their shared passions before Belka. After the wedding ceremony there shall be a feast to celebrate the marriage of the two dwarves. The wedding shall be hosted in the Temple of the Brathmordakin. We hereby invite all descendants of the realm to attend, with special invitations sent to the following. All citizens of The Grand Kingdom of Urguan. All members of the Order of The Golden Lion.
  4. ᛏᚱᛁᚨᛚ ᛟᚠ ᚱᚺᚢᚾ The Resignation of the Grand Ambassador of Urguan, Dagmir Grandaxe ᛏᛁᛗᛖ ᚠᛟᚱ ᚢᚾᛁᛏᚤ Dwedmar of Urguan, Fellow Diplomats & Emissaries, I serve notice to you all. Today, on the 2nd of the Amber Cold, in the 126th Year of the Second Age, I, Dagmir of the Clan of Grandaxe, handed in my formal resignation as the Grand Ambassador of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, passing the symbol of my office, the Ornate Cane of the Grand Ambassador to His Majesty, the Grand King of Urguan, Agnar of the Clan of Grandaxe. I offered this resignation to His Majesty out of a desire for rest and recuperation after striving for peace and tranquillity over the course of two-decades, an achievement in modern diplomacy and a crowning jewel for His Majesty’s reign, it has been my privilege and honour to serve in His Majesty’s Government to cultivate & maintain diplomatic relations around Almaris. It has allowed the Dwedmar an era in which to grant their beardlings a happy and constructive childhood untainted by the stains of unhappiness that War and Bloodshed have wrought on Dwed lives. To my diplomatic contemporaries across Almaris, it has been a pleasure to work with you all in our individual and greater capacities, as diplomats, emissaries & Realms of the Continent. I wish to convey personal thanks to all, with special mention to His Royal Highness, King Georg I of the Dual Koengzem of Hanseti-Ruska, as well as his faithful subjects: His Grace, the Duke Aleksandr var Ruthern of Vidaus & Miss Ilaria Amador, Emissary to Urguan. I also apologise to all foreign diplomatic bodies that you now need to re-establish your contacts and continue prosperous relations with the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. Until such a time as a replacement is made and the Cane passed on, I recommend your correspondence be addressed to His Majesty, the Grand King. I shall maintain my office as an acting Magistrate of the High Courts of Urguan, until such time as it is no longer required of me to maintain the position at the wish of the High Justicar, Thromdrick Irongut, or His Majesty, the Grand King of Urguan. Until then, I shall tend to my personal wellbeing, physically & spiritually, as a Subject of His Majesty and Citizen of the Grand Kingdom. May the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, under the Serene Reign of His Majesty, remain steadfast in its commitments towards Unity among all of the Dwedmar. May the Legion remain stalwart in the face of perils, both foreign and domestic, under the firm command of Duroun Ireheart. May the Religious Sects of Urguan strive for peaceful coexistence and cooperation, under their respective leaders. May Ogradhad Guide us all. Narvok oz Agnar! - Narvok oz Urguan! Signed, Dagmir Grandaxe, Former Grand Ambassador of Urguan, Acting Magistrate of the High Court of Urguan.
  5. TO CUT THE HEAD OFF A SNAKE 19th of the Grand Harvest, 221 SA A plague of heresy has infested the halls of Urguan since the absence of the Legion and their policing presence in Urguan. The Rhun Cultists have assimilated themselves into Urguan, secretly undermining our very religion and Grand Kingdom at every turn. I have taken upon myself to cleanse the Kingdom of these extremists causing chaos in our beloved Kingdom with the proper backing by the Kirkja Dverga. Their crimes are listed below for all to see and those who help, associate, or participate in the Rhun cult will be put under investigation and tried. THEIR CRIMES AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF URGUAN To be a part of the High Courts, one must follow the Brathmordakin as according to da Kirkja Dverga. I. The Rhun Cult teaches falsehood, in that the Rhun Prophet is the only Dwed capable of speaking for the Rhun. This violates articles 1.1, 1.2. FOR, No other office or institution may punish anyone for a crime against the Brathmordakin unless a clergy writing explicitly says otherwise. The Rhun Cult imprisoned Ursus Grandaxe without permission or authority of da Kirkja Dverga. II. Treason FOR, The attempted assassination of Bakir Ireheart & Dravil Ireheart. III. Vandalism FOR, The vandalism of Hefrumm, by destroying statues and placing crude signs around it. FOR, The sacrilege of Paragon Bjor. IV. Disrespect of Holy Relics FOR, The pouring of a tanglefoot potion upon the Paragon Bjor V. Impersonation of a Public Official FOR, The Rhun Cult falsely acts with authority, such as in the case of illegally imprisoning Ursus Grandaxe VI. Vigilantism & Kidnapping FOR, Putting Ursus Grandaxe under House Arrest VII. Insubordination FOR, Describing the High Prophet as a heretic and kin-slayer when proven false by the High Courts. VIII. Conspiracy FOR, Conspiracy to dismantle the Clergy and the Workforce to reduce the Grand Kingdom of Urguan’s rightful rule over Dwarfdom. This was done when both institutions were dissolved before the exodus to Khron’Hundmar. FOR, Upon their return to the Kingdom, their desire to usurp the clergy. IX. Tax Evasion FOR, Failing to continually pay the full amount of your tax liability on time. THEREFORE, THE FOLLOWING ARE UNDER ARREST BY ORDER OF THE GRAND MARSHAL: Norli Starbreaker Durin Hammerforge Thromdrick Irongut Thalgrim Goldhand Rylanor Goldhand Damona Goldhand Dor’Nal Hammerfist …AND ANY OTHERS RHUN CULTISTS. SIGNED, Durorn Ireheart, Grand Marshal of the Legion, Grand Champion of Urguan, Elder of Clan Ireheart Agnar Grandaxe, Grand King of Urguan, Clan Father of Grandaxe, Defender of Kal’Ordholm, Master of Punji-Sticks, Protector of the Dwarves Garedyn The Green, Grand Steward of Urguan, High Chief of Hefrumm, Chief of the Mossborn, High Prophet of da Kirkja Dverga.
  6. [!] A missive would arrive by bird at homes throughout the Grand Kingdom of Urguan... not a door was spared. [!] To arms! In the throngs of the night, and accompanied by a terrible shaking of the earth, Khorvad's servants the Mori have writhed their way under our feet... Now taking hold even within The Deeproads underneath the capital of Kal'Darakaan, seemingly aiming to siege and conquer our grand capital from within... avoiding the defenses of the main entrance. Most menacingly of all however was the beast under control of the Mori, that me and my company gazed upon as we investigated.... a massive centipede... so large it could nearly block the largest deeproad tunnels; and with it, it's spawn in the thousands which we were helpless to watch crawl into every crack and crevice within the caverns... A battle with the foe lies close on the horizon now. As Yemekar's Pick, I call upon all those members of the Workforce to take up the hammers and chisels in defense of the capital! The Deeproads' defenses are few, and ancient by now. As such, I order those who work within the Workforce to ramp up the production of weapons, as well as to seek a meeting with myself, to discuss the efforts at fortification. Siege weapons are to be produced for the defense of the capital, and alchemists and enchanters are ordered to ramp up the production of fire based potions and enchantments to counter the threat. The time for the dwarven kin to unite against the Khorvadic corruption that is the Mori has come, I call upon the legion to hasten it's recruitment and reorganization, as such will be vital in the coming fight... For now it is advised that The Deeproads should be barricaded off, and no soul should venture within... When emplacements are added, such should be done in groups, certainly never alone.

I - The prophet of Ogradhad, call upon those who value the preservation of knowledge, as well as those for whom the call of adventure rings in their ears, to join me and ride to this ruin.

  18. 20th of the Deep Cold, Year 114 of the Second Age. Bjorn lay on his bed, his beard knotted and cuffed with metal jewels. His long red hair braided and swept onto his chest. One hand rested on an axe, a beautiful design forged by an old friend in his early years. His other hand held a shiny ring that seemed to glow slightly. His wedding ring to Rathona. His chest did not move, nor his eyes. The dwarf had peacefully passed. He had felt it coming. Scattered around the floor were books the dwarf had written over the years, pages of drawings that his children had made while they were dwedki and a few empty bottles of Grandaxe Rum. A creation of his own. Bjorn had been through alot in his short dwarven life. Fighting in many wars, participating in multiple battles, the dwarf had earned the respect of his fellow dwedmar. He was known as a successful Jewelerysmith and an even better Merchant. A brewer when he felt like it and a writer as his hobby. Though many in recent years would not know of him because his sickness kept him withdrawn from the community, the dwarf shared many close friends and relationships. Those dwedmar forging him into the person he was. On his bedside table next to the melted wax candle he’d lit before his death was a note. His last words and will to the dwarves of Urguan and his fellow kin within his Clan. I have forged countless pieces, written never ending pages and sold ships worth of goods. But nothing has been as hard as this. I knew my life was coming to an end many stone months ago though I struggled to comprehend it. Though I have lived a difficult life, countless axes swinging towards me I have always found the light at the end of the tunnel. Now though, it is no longer a light. The Brathmordakin called for me, my wife by their side humming soft tunes enticing me. My time is now. To the dwarves that knew me, I hope you remember me as a kind dwarf. I tried where I could to help those in need. To those who don't know me, I hope some will one day tell you of my adventures. Though they may not be as grand as some, I have had my fair share. I would like to give a small message for some dwarves very dear to my heart, be them walking among you or feasting besides the Brathmordakin. Astmar Grandaxe, my father. You didn’t even know I was alive until we first met. Didn’t know you had another son. But none the less you took me in like I had always been there. You helped teach me the ways of a dwarf, aided my hand with a bow and showed me the art of cooking. You were my first anchor within my own culture. Thank you. Wulfgar Grandaxe, my kin. Wulfgar you were the first dwarf I met within the halls of the great dwarven hold. You showed me my true lineage and taught me of our clan's history. Without you I would have never known half of what I do now. I was able to follow your footsteps and teach those of our dwedki about our history. Thank you. Brynaelda Grandaxe, my aunty. You were a mother to me. Coming to Urguan you hugged and fed me without me even asking it. Half the time I’d either have a mug of ale down my throat or a spoon of your broth stuffed into my mouth. You taught me to be kind, to help others be them dwarves or something else. You will forever be the most important dwarf in my life. Thank you. Asvi Frostbeard, my first love and dear friend. Asvi you were a beautiful jewel among a sea of stone. I remember our first meeting on the beach of a fair, you were stabbing the water just after the Goldhand’s had declared their grudge to it. It didn’t take long for the roots to take hold and my love to form. Though you never told me if those feelings were mutual. You cared for me as a close friend either way. PS You still have to fix the marks you left at my house in Hefrumm. Asvi I have always loved you and always will. I hope you find peace wherever you are in the world. To you if you ever return I leave my axe, one of my most dearest possessions. It will remain with my children for the day you return. If that day comes. Enjoy living with the squirrels. Thank you. Gorlim Ireheart, my dear friend. You were the first Ireheart I tolerated. We had our good times and bad. Doesn't mean I liked you. To you I leave a bottle of Grandaxe Rum so you can drink in my honour old friend. Thank you. Dorimnur Goldhand, my mentor. I don’t know where you went Dorimnur. Though the rumor is you to entered the halls of the Brathmordakin. You taught me the skills of the forge and the ways of the merchant. I never knew if you looked to me as a friend but to me you were someone close. Wherever you are Dorimnur I hope you’re at peace. Thank you. Garedyn Mossborn, my dear friend. Green Dragon as my daughter called you. You helped me in my darkness. You aided me in my worst. Though we didn't speak a lot, you were a great friend. I hope I offered you knowledge that aided you to being where you are today. You are a fine dwarf Garedyn, I know you will be great. Thank you. Yazmorra Blackroot, my dear friend. Yazmorra, the most beautiful dwarf to ever live. To this day I still wonder if my father loved you or simply just liked to flirt with you. Thank you Yazmorra for all you taught me. For guiding me in the ways of the forest and always making me feel like an honorary forest dwarf even though I was not. I hope wherever you are that you take one long drag for me, toast to my honour with your horrible strong brews and pray that we meet again. Thank you. Celeste’Tol Blackroot, my dear friend. You didn’t like me as a kid. You sided with Asvi all the time and when we fought you grew scared of me. Though in the years I was away I returned and you were a full dwarfess. You were beautiful. Though you had your scars you helped me heal my own. Celeste without you my life would have ended a lot sooner. I would not have had my children and married my amazing wife. Thank you. Rathona Grandaxe, my wife. My love you have fell before me and I have not much to say. Though I will be by your side soon. You helped heal a broken dwarf and gave him a reason to live. You gave birth to our beautiful children and made me happy. I will see you soon my love. Thank you. Eivor, Orvar, Ashla and Torvi Grandaxe, my children. You were all brats as dwedki. Well besides Ashla who always ran away to the forest. It has been an age since I have seen you all but I hope you all know I love you. You will all become great dwarves. To Eivor I leave 'Ekran Karrzark' or Little Thunder in dwarvish The crossbow made by my father once I had completed my trials. You have not been much of a hunter son, though this will piece armour well from the battlements. To Orvar I leave my Dagger of Grimdugan. A prized pocesson given to me by Dorimnur Goldhand. Maybe you look after it well my hard headed son. To Ashla I leave my bow. Something so dear to me it was made by Asvi Frostbeard as a gift. A token of our friendship. I have held onto it everyday since. Hoping that one day she would return and I could see her once more. You are a great hunter so I know you will use it well. To Torvi I leave my spell rings. Once gifted by Tahorran Divadri. An old teacher of mine and dear friend. It lets you teleport your group. The other a ring of instant snowball. Made by Falk Irongut. Children.. I love you all so much. Aneblla bless. Thank you. Clan Grandaxe, my kin. There are many I have not written about. Agnar, Thumbrindal, Ursus, Levian’Tol, Lillian and more. I want you all to know that my time among this Clan has been amazing. I was born in Sutica though you never made me feel like an outsider dwarf, You are all amazing dwarves with so much strength. To the Clan I leave all my possessions that are not already given. To do with it as you choose. This is not the end. I will see you all once more. I have also spoken to those who will receive specific gifts from me. Thank you all. All I have not mentioned. There are many I have left out, Torsun Goldhand, Brand Irongrinder, Norli Starbreaker to name but a few. Though I have not written a separate part for you I have cared for you all and apricate everything you have done for me and our kin. Thank you all.

You have been an amazing character that has honestly inspired me in so many ways though you were simply played through me. I don’t understand why you become so important or why I felt such a connection but it is your time to go. To Khaz’A’Dentrumm you go. I know the Brathmordakin will bid highly on you and may you find peace among them.
  19. Year 112 of the Second Age ᚷᚤᛗ ᛒᚱᛟ'ᛋ ᛞᛟᚾᛏ ᛚᛟᛋᛖ THE DAWN OF DUNGRIMM’S GYM. ᚷᛖᛏ ᛋᚹᛟᛚᛖ ᚨᚾᛞ ᛒᚢᚠᚠ In the past decades I, Sigrun Ireheart have witnessed a drastic change in Urguan, the muscled men of the past have dwindled in number in favour of Voidal Mages and politicians who care not for their body. These people are all extremely competent in their respective fields and this is not a missive of disrespect, yet it is a missive that I have the solution for these people to improve themselves. I, Sigrun Ireheart announce the Dawn of Dungrimm’s Gym. [!] An artistic depiction of the inside of Dungrimm’s gym. Inside the gym rests alot of equipment to help better one’s body, from strength training with the benchpress, barbells and deadlift to strengthening your core with the pull-up bar. Dungrimm’s gym truly offers everything needed to better yourself physically and mentally. I have even installed a water cooler for the weak, and an ale dispenser for the dwarves. The best part of Dungrimm’s gym is that it is entirely free for everyone visiting Urguan to use. LIFT ON! Signed, Grand Master of War, Clan Father of the Irehearts, Champion of the Wilds, Grand Champion of Urguan, Master of Dungrimm’s Gym, Urguan’s chess Grand Master.

And Arknight Togrim Heartstring. These four brave men and women came across an Urguani ship docked outside of The Frozen Castle of Serheim in Ando’Alur lands. A known refuge place to darkspawn and other low-life such as necromancers. Once they spotted the Urguani ship docked outside of this wretched place, it was under famed dwarven captain Sigrun Ireheart that these brave men and women successfully reclaimed this seafaring vessel for the Urguani Navy from the clutches of the vile darkspawn that had stolen it. [!] An artistic depiction of the four courageous heroes.
  22. ___________________________________________________ The Reformation of the Obsidian Guard Long before the reformation of Urguan, a specialized force that ensured the security of the crown was handed to the Legion and the Obsidian Guard. Though the name and role of the Obsidian Guard has been forgotten for many years. Due to years of foreseen inactivity of the Legion, the Grand King and his King’s Council has sought out a better fit for Urguan and its safety. Therefore the concept of the Obsidian Guard is henceforth reborn. Within this rebirth, they will be raised and charged with the protection of the Grand King and all of Urguan. Though in times of war, the Obsidian Guard shall be reformed into the Legion once again. Many of the Guard’s within its ranks shall fill in officer positions thus leading the Urguan auxiliary force to dwarven victory. ___________________________________________________ Ranks and Structure The Captain of the Guard serves as the primary and only officer of the Guard whenever the King is not present, only relaying his orders to them otherwise. Often a veteran with some prior experience commanding, or simply an individual noted for his remarkable skill in battle, as well as unwavering loyalty. Should the king fall in battle, or otherwise die before abdication, the task of protecting the relics of the Grand Kingdom falls to this individual until an election is held. The Hammerguard comprise many of the Longbeards and veterans of the Guard, and are also the fewest in number, as there are few Longbeards willing to take the oaths and sacrifices required to join, however those that do, are among the most elite warriors in the field.. The Axeguard is the most numerous in the ranks of the Obsidian Guard, and is intended to serve as the main bulk of the King’s shieldwall. Members of The Axeguard are feared and respected warriors in battle that have proven themselves in battle countless times. The Shieldguard is the ‘grunt’ rank of Obsidian Guard, though make no mistake, they are still elite soldiers in their own right, and simply have not proven themselves in the capacity of a Royal Guard. The Shieldguard operate more akin to a traditional Legionnaire than an independent warrior like their superiors. ___________________________________________________ Requirements and Restrictions The Obsidian Guard is not a simple military guild or formation that one can apply to join freely. The Throng of the Grand King himself commands two things of its members, discipline, and absolute loyalty. To be a member of the Obsidian Guard, one is required to be a full-blooded Dwarf, (preferably with traceable lineage back to Urguan himself, though this is not an inherent requirement.). No ‘foreign folk’ are ever to be permitted within its ranks, even if they are declared honorary dwarfs, nor are any halfbreeds or other folk of questionable allegiance and lineage allowed. Furthermore, a member of the Obsidian Guard is to never, under any circumstances retreat from the field of battle, unless commanded to do so by the King, or Captain of the Guard. There are few things more shameful in the eyes of the Gods than cowardice. The punishment for this utmost shameful display is the shaving of one’s beard, and subsequent exile, though this punishment may only be administered by the Grand King or Captain of the Guard. To be a member of the Obsidian Guard, one is required to be an adept fighter of some form, be they with shield and shortaxe, or with greataxe and maul. (OOC note: This means that the person be competent in either PVP, CRP, or preferably both.) As both the Legion and the Obsidian Guard ultimately draw from the same pool of recruits, (and also, to prevent the Grand King from amassing a personal army, unbeholden to the council) The Obsidian Guard shall by default never number more than a thousand individual members. (OOC note: 10 personas) Any expansion of the Obsidian Guard must first be approved by the Grand Senate of Urguan to take effect. Any potential recruits to the Obsidian Guard require the approval of both the Captain and Grand King prior to undergoing initiation into the Guard. ___________________________________________________ Initiation To join the ranks of the Obsidian Guard, one must undergo a process of several rituals and traditions before being considered a member of their ranks. To begin, an individual must bring themselves before the Grand King or Captain, and must make their case for what makes them ‘material’ for the Obsidian Guard. This individual may bring two people, both of clans besides his own, to provide a list of deeds, or testimony as to the individual’s worthiness. If no prior deeds are given, or if the King and Captain find the individual’s testimony lacking, the King may command the individual to prove himself. This may be as simple as returning with the head of a worthy foe, or a difficult task, such as slaying a greater monster with witnesses, or surviving ten days and nights in the frozen north without supplies. It is a matter of creativity on the part of the Grand King, and is why one must be ready to prove themselves, or have already done so if they wish to join the Guard. Once this individual is accepted, either through the completion of a great deed, or through prior deeds, they then must swear an oath before the shrine of Dungrimm and Anbella. These oaths must be issued with the Captain or Grand King as witness to them. As a final rite of initiation, the individual must undergo the process of acquiring a tattoo on their right arm, this tattoo being a sleeve, and shall take the shape of the individual’s oath, written in ancient Dwarvish script. Only once this process is completed may the individual don the armor of the Obsidian Guard, where they are to serve until death, or released from their oath by the Grand King. Uniform As the dwarves of the Obsidian Guard are all elite fighters they shall all wear the same uniform to symbolize their unity towards their goal. Only the Captain shall wear a cape and pass it down to the next Captain should he retire or die in battle.
  23. ᛋᛁᚷᚱᚢᚾ ᚱᛁᛉᛉ ᛗᚨᚾ DUNGRIMM’S GYM GUIDEBOOK. ᚺᛖ ᛞᛁᛞ ᛁᛏ ᚨᚷᚨᛁᚾ Bench press. To start your bench press journey you shall roll out of 100 using /roll 100. (Unless voidally weakened, you roll out of 50.) Whatever you get you add +40, this is how much you bench press in lbs. (Example, /roll 100. I get 50, I add 40 so i get 90 lbs as my first personal record.) Once you have a personal record you roll out of your personal record and add 10% of that record. (For example, I got 90 lbs so I roll out of 90, get 50 and add 9 since 9 is 10% of 90.) A roleplay example. Sigrun Ireheart attempts to benchpress more then his previous PR of 270. xMuted rolled 160 out of 270. We add 27 since 27 is 10% of 270. Sigrun Ireheart benches 187 lbs, must be an off-day. Pull-up. Pull-ups are simple. You roll out of 20 and that is how many pull-ups you are able to do. Once you roll a 20/20 you get to roll out of 25. Once you roll the new best you add 5 to your rolls. Barbells. Man I don't know just curl them and get SWOLE. Dwedmill. You roll out of 20 and that is how many miles you are able to run Once you roll a 20/20 you get to roll out of 25. Once you roll the new best you add 5 to your rolls. Punching Bag. *punches Other things. Feel free to roleplay any equipment there being in the Gym, note that these are just recommendations. If you wanna get SWOLE irp in a different way go ahead CHAMP!

When me and Ulfar were having a nice chat about the possible expansion, we spotted quite the sight outside Urguan’s valley. We spotted what we have now dubbed ‘Dungrimm’s Dumbbell.’ inside the valley of Kal’Darakaan. It is a massive dumbbell, presumably used by Dungrimm himself for his exercise. [!] A depiction of the Great Dumbbell. As we should, I decided I shall host a contest to see what person holds hidden strength within themselves! Whoever can successfully lift the dumbbell off of the ground shall receive 250 mina for their prowess in strength, and shall gain 1/10th of the stocks in Dungrimm’s Gym. It shall be hosted in a few stone days from now! (OOC: The Event will be hosted at 28-1-2023, at 5 est. Rules are simple, whoever rolls a 19/20 or higher twice in a row lifts the dumbbell off of the ground! Location is right outside in the valley of Urguan, head to Urguan and you can’t miss it.)
