Our platoon joined a caravan of 400 strong Dwarves including 3 Legendary wrights, as well as attendant journeyman & apprentices. the journey South was uneventful save for some kerfuffel with HH and some necromancer who was speedily subdued and turned over to Fae authorities.
Arriving at Echer’naught we found a “city” in disaster. Only 3000 souls were left alive with most of the Northern wall destroyed. That being said the city is beautiful and with proper rebuilding should become a shining star in the South.
Our craftsman set to work with a will while Cptn. Rorauk and his picked crew (myself amongst them) met with the honorable Col. Wolfhaven and planned a renovation of Low town which was hard hit during the war. I recommended 200 dwarves be labled with red bandanas and begin passing out food and toys for the children the better to win over hearts and minds. I recommended an alliance with the most benevolent of the various criminal organizations (crime will ALWAYS be there, the trick is to have it controlled and under supervision with appropriate taxes being paid). I thought I might dabble myself with business but realized that my training days were done and I must be happy with my soldier/wright lifestyle (nothing says I won’t make some coin on the side, this is virgin territory after all!). Elak Lorekeeper will be very instrumental in implementing my recommendations and seeing them through. I expect the rest of our squad to be ecstatic at the chance to bash some heads and enforce the peace.
Should my plan come to fruition I hope to have my battlefield promotion to Lt. confirmed.
For the glory of Stahlheim I am,
Lt. Grum Goldbeard.
