Dark Forest Elf Ranger: My lady, they are here
Luli Steinhammer: Ah, Greetings *glances at Oskar*
Oskar Steinhammer: What be yer name, lady?
Galadriel: I am Galadriel
Galadriel: and you are?
Oskar Steinhammer: Greetins! I be Oskar, o the Steinhammers, formerly o dwarven Lathine!

Luli Steinhammer: *hisses* Anvil, behave
Galadriel: our forest, our city has magical protections
Luli Steinhammer: *looks up* Ohh, Luli Steinhammer
Ezekial ForgeHammer: Ezekial of the Forgehammer clan.
Galadriel: nice to meet you all
Luli Steinhammer: and, er, Anvil
Oskar Steinhammer: Aye, an we be seekin yer help against the White Hand, an ter regain what once be ours.
Galadriel: yes i know
Galadriel: and now the while hand streaches out to us
Galadriel: we fight him, his orcs, goblins, ogres, giants, and now Fingar
Galadriel: i know what you want
Luli Steinhammer: Then ye'll help us?
Galadriel: our peoples have been friends in the old times
Galadriel: i would hate to lose my home
Luli Steinhammer: I was but a wee tot when Lathine fell and my papa with it
Galadriel: i have lived here for over five thousand years
Galadriel: so am attached to it
Oskar Steinhammer: *smiles sadly at Luli* Lady Galadriel, we seek yer help in regainin our homeland, and yer wise counsel.
Luli Steinhammer: *blinks as she tries to fathom 5000 years*
Galadriel: the White hand cannot be destroyed at this time
Oskar Steinhammer: *looks dismayed* Not even with yer help?
Ezekial ForgeHammer: Cannot be?
Galadriel: he is a power that grows in association with the Dark Moon Cthulhu and the worship of the horror
Luli Steinhammer: Oh, but we've come all this way, fer nothing?
Galadriel: we will help you stand against them
Luli Steinhammer: Aye, Dark Moon we've heard of. What is Chthulu?
Oskar Steinhammer: Bah, we stopped the avatar o this Cthulhu at the Ruins o R'lyeh
Galadriel: you destroyed a dream
Luli Steinhammer: *looks with wonder at Oskar*
Galadriel: do you think you could fight a god?
Galadriel: a god the other gods fear?
Oskar Steinhammer: Well, we had Olias with us, I think
Ezekial ForgeHammer: Fer Lathine, fight an win we would.
Oskar Steinhammer: ..and Aunika to, as I be recallin.
[Lightasa_Feather] Luli Steinhammer: But surely with Moradin's strenght ta guide us?
Galadriel: you could with enough might storm the city
Galadriel: vanquish him and yet he returns
Oskar Steinhammer: Aye, we entered Lathine afore, since the fall. Powerful goblins dwelt there, our weapons could nay touch them.
Galadriel: dark magic
Create IronBlade: it is a nasty place now
Luli Steinhammer: So that be it? We canna return?
Galadriel: training goblins in the advanced mastery of the bow
Galadriel: I see your outpost will fall
Galadriel: that unless you can defend it
Luli Steinhammer: Oskar, what is she saying? Why did we come here ta listen ta this?
Galadriel: My rangers are seeking some answers
Oskar Steinhammer: She be tellin us that we need ter defend Undivver Ultok, our stronghold near Lathine, or it too will fall.
Galadriel: we are in the same struggle
Create IronBlade: tell her a bout the deal
Oskar Steinhammer: *looks to Create and nods* IronBlade, mayhap ye can speak o it.
Create IronBlade: the enemy you are fighting now is looking for this place
Galadriel: yes we know
Create IronBlade: they wanted to hire us to find it
Galadriel: they will pay you well
Oskar Steinhammer: The Lord o Fingar seeks ye and yer elven city here, seeks it with all his malice
Create IronBlade: they said if we give them the location they would pay us. lets get a trap for them
Oskar Steinhammer: I give ye my word, I will not reveal it to him, by me honor and by Moradin's beard.
Create IronBlade: and end this
Galadriel: Broken Tree told me fingar and the white hand would unite
Luli Steinhammer: We said we were'na interested but I'm sure he dinna believe us. He offered a treasure
Galadriel: yes they want us all dead
Ezekial ForgeHammer: *huffs* Humans. Typical.
Luli Steinhammer: *looks at the others* If we went ta him with information, I think he'd believe it
Galadriel: they were choping down trees
Galadriel: with dryads
Galadriel: Killing them all
Luli Steinhammer: Oh, no
Galadriel: slaughtered whole clans of brownies
Create IronBlade: I say yes a trap
Galadriel: a trap -- what kind of trap?
Create IronBlade: we give them a location to go to you lay in wait when they get there BAM!
Oskar Steinhammer: *nods at Create*
Luli Steinhammer: Or tell them we know a way inta yer city that is unguarded
Luli Steinhammer: Not here, but somewhere likely
Galadriel: they may ask their true sayer to watch you
Galadriel: then just kill you
Oskar Steinhammer: Can ye or yer mages cast a spell on one o us that would fool their truthsayers?
Galadriel: the area about the entrance to Black Gold might be good
Galadriel: there is a spell but it does not last long
Create IronBlade: can you put it in to a scroll for us
Galadriel: there are scrolls
Luli Steinhammer: *picks up the scroll*
Luli Steinhammer: We use this when we enter Fingar?
Galadriel: when you enter the Garrison
Create IronBlade: *nods*
Oskar Steinhammer: And where be this "Black Gold" where we should lead them? Or should we give them the information and depart?
Galadriel: do you need a guide to the place?
Ezekial ForgeHammer: An if the rest o' us just keep our yaps shut, nothing 'll give away? Er do we each need the spell?
Oskar Steinhammer: I know a bit o these lands *smiles slightly* so if you tell me where the place be, mayhap I kin find it.
Galadriel: leave the Dale
Galadriel: go west and west again
Galadriel: look for the tunnel
Oskar Steinhammer: By Elgarth Mountain?
Galadriel: to the Dense forest, in the Northwest
Oskar Steinhammer: An ye be waitin there for em?
Galadriel: I will have rangers
Oskar Steinhammer: Just make sure yer archers aim at the humans, not us dwarves. *grins*
Galadriel: only those dwarves of darkness
Galadriel: your Duergar clan
Oskar Steinhammer: *stiffens* If in truth there be traitors amongst me people, I promise, they will pay fer what they done one day.
Oskar Steinhammer: Unless ye have some final words o advice, we be takin our leave then and fillin our end o the bargain.
Galadriel: go then
Luli Steinhammer: I be wondering mam? *asks Galadriel*
Oskar Steinhammer: *waits for Luli*
Galadriel: yes an we shall help you if you need it
Luli Steinhammer: If ye could write sommat that we could show the Fingar commander?
Luli Steinhammer: Sommat we might hae found? Ta confirm oor story
Galadriel: *writes a quick note*
Galadriel: here take this
Luli Steinhammer: *takes the note* Ah, perfect
Galadriel: *hands Luli a note*
Luli Steinhammer: We kin tell him we caught a messanger
Luli Steinhammer: and found the note hidden
Luli Steinhammer: We'll hafta practice lookin' greedy
Galadriel: that may work
Luli Steinhammer: You'll hafta say ye overrode me Oskar, cause I was too definite aboot refusin the reward
Create IronBlade: greedy is easy
Oskar Steinhammer: I kin do that, Luli.
Luli Steinhammer: If'n an elf called Jaak comes, if ye could give him welcome? He's a trusted companion o' oors
Oskar Steinhammer: Trusted? *catches himself* Well, he be all right, fer an elfie
Galadriel: yes i shall
Oskar Steinhammer: All right then. Off we go.
Luli Steinhammer: Oskar, he fought right beside ye on the way here
Galadriel: yes trust is still not easily given
Oskar Steinhammer: *winks at Luli* Practicin me greedy dwarf look, Luli.
Create IronBlade: just think of lots of ale
Galadriel: *smiles* and you are doing so well you fooled the pretty lady
Oskar Steinhammer: Lady, thank ye fer yer help. While we be off, please think about how we can save our stronghold from the White Hand.
Luli Steinhammer: If ye set the trap fer 3 days ahead? *looks at Oskar for verification*
Oskar Steinhammer: *nods to Luli*
Luli Steinhammer: We'll hurry ta Fingar
Galadriel: know this -- we want him out as much or more than you do
Luli Steinhammer: Cause it wouldna look good if we try ta rush tha humans ta the trap
Oskar Steinhammer: We dwarves be great sprinters. We be runnin day an night ter get there an back ter the Black Gold
Galadriel: remember the humans cannot go as fast as you can
Create IronBlade: *smiles*
Ezekial ForgeHammer: *nod*
Galadriel: they may go faster at first but cannot keep up the pace
Luli Steinhammer: What? Anvil *runs to replant a bush*
Galadriel: very nice bear
Oskar Steinhammer: *looks at bush nervously* Well, best we be off.
Luli Steinhammer: I dinna care that there were honey ants. It were not yurs
Galadriel: he can have it
Galadriel: he is a guest
Luli Steinhammer: Yes, he's a nice bear but, weel, verra kind o' ye
Galadriel: we will plant another
Create IronBlade: *sigh*
Luli Steinhammer: *feeds the plant to Anvil*
Oskar Steinhammer: *motions to Luli* Come now, we best be off. *nervously* Dinna want ter impose on the ladies hospitality.
Create IronBlade: *shakes Head*
Luli Steinhammer: Ah, we'll be off noo
Luli Steinhammer: Come on Anvil
