Deity: Vothdar "The Valorous" - Vothdar is the god of strength, valor,
and ancestry. His symbol is a mountain peak with an eye at the top looking down.
Vothdar has been called upon by warriors in almost every battle to ever occur.
To die in his name performing deeds of great heroism promises an afterlife in
the Halls of Kortella, the warrior's rest. Here they will drink, fight, and have
their tales of heroism recounted for all time. Calling upon Vothdar is not to be
done lightly, however, for once you have called his attention, you every action
will be judged. Should Vothdar be called upon to witness unworthy acts, then he
will turn his back upon the coward who called him. Vothdar is opposed directly
against Ghalnn, the god of slaughter.

Notes (to include any specific gear, runes, attributes, or information):
A helm with long
vertical ivory horns and eye-visor. This horned helm is forged of gromril and
trimmed with dark gold. On the brow is socketed the Glanderstone, a large
white gem found by the original delvers of Mount Glander. The gem glows when
worn by those of the Mount Glander royal blood line and is a rallying beacon
in the chaos of battle. This is a family heirloom passed down from Warfield's
A double-bladed runic
great axe made of gromril and heavily embossed with dark gold. Forged in
depths of Mount Glander to slay the Orc King, Goregut Dwarf-Hater. This axe
never fulfilled its oath though as Goregut was eaten by Zharung at the foot of
Mount Glander where the orcish army was camped during a siege. This axe is
imbued with the Rune of Might (25 points) and the Rune of Fury (25 points).
Over top of his iron
scalemail hauberk, Warfield wears a gromril-forged breast plate trimmed with
dark gold. In its center is embossed the symbol of Mount Glander; two crossed
golden hammers. Flanking the icon is the Rune of Stone (5 points) and the
Master Rune of Steel (50 points), granting additional protection to the
On Warfield's belt is
chained a gem-encrusted gold tankard marked with the Rune of Warding. Those who drink from the tankard are protected against magic for a
short time. Spells are largely ineffectual against Warfield due to the
frequency of Dwarf ale consumption.
Warfield has a small smithy hammer strapped to his belt used to perform
various repairs or to be used as a weapon in an emergency. He also carries
around a Red Elm pipe carved by the hold's pipe maker a long time ago to
remind him of simpler times. When traveling, he wears a crimson red cloak with
dark gold trim. This doesn't provide much subtlety in the woods, but it does
hint to those around the status of its wearer.
Originally hailing from a small eastern region in Northern Stonepine Ridge known as Mount Glander,
Warfield is the leader of Stone and Steel, a Dwarf regiment from Bordinar's
Cleft. After nearly two centuries to work on the art of combat, he is
somewhat skilled in battle-healing and gaining the attention of his foes,
though it his charisma that tends to rally dwarfs to his banner more than
his battle prowess. After the death of his father, Warfield
became the ninth King of Mount Glander. His reign was cut short however, when
the hold was attacked by a wicked frost drake named Zharung and the Dwarfs were
forced to abandon their home after a valiant attempt to defend it.
Surviving clans followed Warfield through the mountains to Bordinar's Cleft
where he sought audience with King Flamehammer to ask for his kin to be given
refuge within the mountain hold. Flamehammer agreed and granted the beleaguered Dwarfs
a home within the mountain. Stone and Steel was formed from the clans of
Mount Glander as a military regiment within Bordinar Cleft's army and
Warfield was given the title of Dwarf Lord.
In an effort to restore
glory to the deep realms of Telon, Warfield petitioned King Flamehammer to
create an alliance between the Dwarfs and Gnomes. To accomplish this, the
regiment of Stone and Steel was to permit Gnomes to join their ranks. This once
tenuous relationship between the two races has slowly started to improve because
of this alliance.
Honor and Valor are cornerstones of Warfield's belief system, and he tends
to be harsh and unforgiving of oathbreakers. When Warfield speaks, his voice
rumbles like a thunderhead on the horizon and when he bellows his warcry it echoes for miles. His favorite drink is Brodder's Double Brewed Double Stout Dwarven Ale which he finds helps keep
him focused and while he carries around the Red Elm pipe carved for him, he
does not smoke.
