The Death of Tekkud Fortressstrength (Autumn 255)

Whilst training on a live goblin lasher, Tekkud Fortressstrength The Even top - one of our up and coming hammerdwarfs of H Squad - was slain in what can only be described as a training accident..

We had been training H Squad in our killroom by releasing unarmed goblins one at a time from their cages. However it appears this goblin lasher was not properly removed of all weaponry and armour.

During a brief and bloody fight, H Squad attacked the goblin. Ber Mansionclashes (H4 - who is currently also our mayor) was pummelling the goblin with his warhammer, even kicking the goblin in the back of the head at one point. The rest of H Squad surrounded the creature and bashed it with their silver warhammers.

Tekkud Fortressstrength The Even Top (H5) had tried to bash the goblin a few times, but it dodged away. In response the goblin punched Tekkud in the head and the hand, before lashing it's iron whip into Tekkud's head and seriously damaging the dwarf's upper spine. Tekkud had dropped his hammer and shield by this point and fallen over. The goblin followed up with a vicious lash to each foot.

Tekkud was still trying to push the goblin off him as Ber Mansionclashes (hammerdwarf and mayor) bashed the creature in the head with his own warhammer, jamming the skull through the brain and tearing it (the brain) fatally! Apparently the blow was so hard that the hammer lodged itself in the wound and Ber fell off his feet!

Unfortunately Tekkud suffocated shortly afterwards due to his wounds, and has now been interred into the dwarf crypts. The foul goblin that slew Tekkud was known as Strodno Ruthlessflies, a female goblin of little note.

Although Tekkud Fortressstrength The Even Top had only been known to us a short time, he had already shown promise. During The Attack of Lashing, it is widely believed that Tekkud was the first hammerdwarf from H Squad to pick up a warhammer and join the fray without even being armoured correctly. This hadn't fazed Tekkud - who charged through a corridor filled with shrieking trolls (maiming several), then barging past and doubling back to the main entrance to deliver a coup-de-grace to three wounded goblins with his new hammer.

Farewell brave warrior.


  1. Fallen, but not forgotten. I think this calls for a nice tomb :P

  2. I'm pretty sure he's been interred with the common dwarfs, should really start planning some tombs for warriors like him and Crafttempt!
