ST 25: After liberating the human lands from The Evil Wizard Tristan, they went northward through the Ruins of Genon Lee to track down the rumor of the mythical Dwarves. Nestled at the end of the Mountain Pass, and deep into the Red Mountains, lay the dwarven fortress city of Helmhold. Quite welcoming, the Dwarves embraced the newcomers and entertained them. Lady Liloyne Marcu had a somewhat difficult time getting along with the Dwarves, but they absolutely loved Reverend Crack Jackson who was just about as stubbornly devoted to his path as they were to theirs. While in Helmhold, they witnessed an Ankheg attack. It seems they had been plagued with them lately. Eager to aide his new allies and prove himself and the might of Dorn Kilrani, Reverend Crack Jackson set off to hunt and slay the Ankhegs. Fearing he would be lost without her, Lady Marcu tagged along. Together, they slew the Ankhegs that were plaguing the Dwarves. Recognizing a strong material that was non-metallic in the Ankhegs’ chitin shells, Reverend Crack Jackson then forged a chitin plate maille suit. The Dwarves and Crack Jackson resolve to establish a trade route through the ruins of Genon Lee, and establish Genon Lee as a demilitarized neutral zone between their territories. Having Established himself as the liason to the Dwarves, they effectively rendered Mayor Heartstrom powerless in all political matters leaving him only the ability to command the Town Guard. He fumed, but no one cared.
