The Burden of a Dwarf
- Groshlig Deepholer, Stone shaper
We are finally out from under the elves, and now we can meet them on equal ground, but choose carefully for magic is old and established, and our technology is young, and strong, but is not as well placed. The Humans Started Arkan to wall themselves from the elves. They failed. The humans built Hulafir Town to protect them from the elves, and with our strong backs, they have succedded. But, for too many years the Watch Lord was an Empire stooge. Now for the first time, he is more accepting of the ways of the Senate. The Empire can be a good thing…look at teh riches from Tuli, the spice from Jonju. But it must be more accepting of the ways of the people, and that means the men folk as well as the tame of the coarse races. The possiblity for a bright future stands near the crest of the mountain, but it also stands balanced on a cliff.
