Timeline and Plot points:
Mithril Hall is now the home of Clan Battlehammer. Bruenor Battlehammer is king. Mithril Hall has been retaken from Duergar 100 years ago by Bruenor and his mighty heroes, Drizzt Do’Urden, Wulfgar and Cattie-Brie. Wulfgar and Cattie-Brie have died, their natural lives expired, but Bruenor and Drizzt live on. Within the overarching clanline of Battlehammer, many other clans have sworn allegiance to clan Battlehammer and reside in Mithril Hall, I presume yours as well.
Now, after the completion of this module, your dwarven heritage may come into play. Your allegiance to any dwarven deity will never be questioned by another dwarf. What is important is to establish your place in your clan. I know we joked a bit, but Grimhil Runehammer, of clan Runehammer, eighth son of [insert patriarch], may become important. You have already run into one dwarf in Cormyr. Do not consider this a coincidence. Dwarves do not live in Cormyr. A dwarven blacksmith laboring in a human town in the middle of nowhere? Remember your dwarven heritage and what it means to be a dwarf. Accept nothing at face value.
Of also note, and I fear Karen was spacing out, the mayor entrusted Danniwill HeatherOaks of Feltbury-Downs to retrieve the apple, not Toddiwill. These minor details might become major ones as we progress.
A clan of ruffians has moved into southern Cormyr. All of a sudden, a clan of halflings decide to set up shop there also? Toddiwill is bluster. Danniwill has said nothing. But both obviously despise the Red Sash gang.
The mayor’s son, although but a boy possessing a spellbook bought from a gnome, is certain he is descended from Elminster. Why?
Goblins appear and have reappeared for the past 12 years with a healing apple. 13 years ago, a grim looking character with a tree frog on his shoulder went to the citadel and never came out.
You have reached the entrance of the citadel. It is there that we shall resume.
Sorry to be obvious, but it’s a lot of info to take in. Oh, and, by the way, Toddiwill Heatheroaks of Feltbury-Downs is all me (Copyright 2011, Rubright Productions, Ltd.)
