In mid-spring of 256, and Vabok Lorokil the dwarven child has created uthirnural Adagokil - Searblind the Soaked Tests - a tetrahedrite trumpet.
Note in particular the mention it makes of another artifact - The Hero of Speaking (an iron splint created in 253) . More peculiar still is the reference to Urvad Guardarch, a dwarf of unknown origin.
Records indicate that Urvad was a dwarf born during the ancient and dark times, around the year 45. Urvad travelled far, including down to the depths of the world where he tamed giant bats and elk birds. His father was Shem Healedgalleys the hag mate of shadow.
Urvad also led his nation The Scholarly Trumpets in a number of attacks against The Evils of Coloring - a goblin civilisation - in their lair at Doomedtube. Several of our older dwarfs also took part in various raids against Doomedtube so no wonder the legend of Urvad has been passed down from generation to generation.
Urvad died of old age in 205.
This is the living history of Daggerbite, a Dwarven colony settled by The Buff Flags. The walls glitter with images of Giant Magpies. The Magpies are being eaten.
