It’s getting hairy in here…
Once known as Lord Kegni Stonebottom of the Stonebottom Clan, Lord Kegni Ironbeard received his new name when he saved the Dwarven King’s life. The story goes something like this…
The battle was raging fiercely around them as the Dwarves of Khaziel fended off an attack by a group of marauding Orcs and Goblins. The Orc Warleader made a strong push in attempt to break the Dwarven lines; he rode forward on his giant Warg and hurled a massive black greatspear straight at the King. Without thinking, Lord Kegni leaped in front of the spear, which caught him squarely in the chest. As everyone looked on, fearing the worst, Kegni got to his feet and let out a massive roar! It seems his beard was SO lush and thick, that the Orcish spear never penetrated it! After the battle, his clan was renamed to the Ironbeards, and Lord Kegni received the honor of being named the King’s personal bodyguard.
Most Dwarves spend their days digging holes, and hitting things with axes and hammers (simultaneously, if they can manage it). Not ALL Dwarves are like that though; some prefer to spend their time in more scholarly or artistic pursuits. The Dwarven Apothecaries are one such group, extracting the very essence of stone (which, coincidentally, might involve a little hammer-hitting), and brewing potions to fortify the Warriors and Miners who are so revered in Dwarven culture.
There will also be a Rock Troll available in Glory reward chests this week.
