Grombrindal: Chronicles of the Wanderer
|October 29, 2022
The duardin are a proud folk, renowned throughout the Mortal Realms for their peerless craftsmanship and their stubbornness in battle. They are also a divided people. But whether they dwell in the stone halls of their doomed ancestors, in the furnace heat of Fyreslayer lodges, or free from the anchor of their traditions in skyborne cities, they share a common legend – that of an aged traveller, a wanderer, whose timely arrival will avert calamity and right intractable wrongs. When the foes of the duardin are many, when the foul creatures of the realms bay at the doors, Grombrindal will return and take up his axe once more.
|I warned Bruni not to build here,’ said Whitebeard. ‘Chaos in the rocks and in the water, I told him. But he wouldn’t listen. Too proud. Your father was the same. For the obvious want of a Special on which to pass comment this year, let me pass on this wisdom instead.’ He tilted his head back, looking up as the brewery’s roof slowly collapsed. ‘This is what will always happen when the duardin seal themselves away behind their gates and wait out the darkness. You asked me to stay and watch over your hall. In a moment of weakness for the hearth I once knew, I agreed. But what is the brewer without the farmers and millers and carters, without the merchants and buyers in distant lands? What are any of us without our fellow duardin? Without the humans and the aelves who’d join us in shunning the darkness if we let them? The shadow will pass, aye. But it must be made to.
