    Summary

    This story is based off of a story from the game Dwarf Fortress, provided by the lovely Dusty Dorfs posts (https://slenderdorf.tumblr.com/post/178527444194/legends-the-chronicles-of-war-what-is-the-war). With permission, I have taken some liberties with added names and personalities, but I drew much of the information here directly from those posts.

    From this we have a story of Cuquimo Mergedyell, the human general of a conflict against Goblinkind, and the kind of impact that has on a person later in their life…

    Summary

    After the events of Winding Paths, a new fortress is built on the eastern continent of Anurkar, a place that has been peaceful so far. Råsneth, translating to the very subtle "Deathbalance", has been plotted by a mysterious creature who intends to make profit through chaos as the civilizations around here are not prepared for times of ruthless war. But how will the dwarves react to this cult they don't actually believe in?

    Summary

    "Look, volcanoes are both practical and atmospheric. Don't you want a lava fall in the middle of the dining room? Picture it! Seated on a masterwork chair, surrounded by carvings of cheese, enjoying a meal of the same, as a truly awe-inspiring amount of lava floods past you and through the floor." Reg was so obsessed he couldn't see the downsides.

    "First of all, we'd need a master mason for those chairs; they don't come equipped with the volcano. Second, do you remember what happened with the waterfall? Which was made of water? Do you want to picture how that would've gone if the liquid involved had been able to set everything on fire?" Perhaps undermining her own point, Kumil concluded with, "And it's not lava if it it never reaches the surface. It's still magma. Unless you're going to make us all live outside, it would be a magma fall."

    "So you can picture it!" Reg said instead of acknowledging any of her points.

    Summary

    Summary

    When we came into the tavern in Stonetooth, there was an old dwarf sitting alone at a table for six. We sat down with him. He was quite the character, and this was his tale. He was more than a little drunk, so who knows if it is true or not, but it deserved to be recorded.

    Summary
