Hearing at Hammerfist

Playing against type the party decide not to steal the loot, and instead make the two day trip to the Hammerfist Holds. The Grand Hall is filled with dwarves of variable accent who seem willing to undertake Lord Jarmaath’s mission to defend the walls of Brindol.

Willing, that is, until the merchant Derra Copperfist steps forward and accuses Thovar of being none other than Thovar Kinslayer, pariah of the Gulgarkitosh Halls, murderer of Prince Gotork!

A trial ensues, with the party attempting to prove Thovar’s good name in the face of Copperbottom’s dire accusations. Things are looking grim, with the whole party set to be clapped in irons and sent off for trial in Gulgarkitosh, when some bright spark suggests that maybe Coppernob has his own axe to grind. Perhaps he was in league with Gotork and his goblin cronies!

The dwarven leader Othrek Hammerfist sends his men out to search Coppercock’s caravan, and sure enough proof is found: a foul plot is afoot! Sadly Copperfister has made good his escape in the confusion, but on the plus side Thovar’s name is cleared, and the party are invited to join Othrek in a round of ales and game of Braggart.

Othrek has some sage, if somewhat drunken advice regarding onrushing hordes and Ghostlords, and with that the party retire for bed having somehow made themselves a firm friend in the doughty dwarven leader.
