1. Someone from the other side has come!
1. Someone from the other side has come!
2. Who are you?
3. Who you be?
8. I go away.
9. I will return later.
10. I am Grenjar Silver Hammer. Tell me, did Stennar reach you?
10. I am Grenjar Silver Hammer. Tell me, did Stennar reach you?
11. Yes, but he died before he could tell me what was happening.
12. He die.
20. Stennar. [He hangs his head for a moment.] How did he die?
20. Stennar. [He hangs his head for a moment.] How did he die?
21. He perished in a horrible zeppelin crash.
22. He went uugghhhh. And then he stop breathing.
30. A zeppelin? What is that?
30. A zeppelin? What is that?
31. It's an airship. A boat that flies, suspended under a large balloon.
40. What? I've never heard such a thing! How is this possible?
40. What? I've never heard such a thing! How is this possible?
41. The world has changed greatly since you've been there.
50. No doubt driven by dwarven ingenuity and technological advances!

51. After Bates' engine, the humans began developing machines.
52. Uh...yes, you're right.
60. So, our folly haunts us once again. If only we had harnessed that boy's ideas, what might have been...well, that is of no consequence now. If we hadn't made some error in judgment the dark elves could exploit, another clan would have.

61. Can you tell me about what happened?
69. I have something I must attend to before listening to your tale.
70. The dark elves had been lying in wait, looking for a way to bring some dwarves over to this side. They knew that technology would eventually weaken the wards to the point of failure, but they decided to accelerate the process. They needed a machine to open the rift back up by distorting the already weakened wards. An elf couldn't make a machine to save his life...

71. And then Bates made his steam engine...
72. Heh. Bates made engine and you guys sent away.

80. Exactly. Somehow, they convinced King Loghaire to banish us. We were shocked, to say the least...but our king had spoken. We were told our banishment was to the Isle of Despair, but this is where we ended up. We can only assume our king knew nothing of their true intent.

82. I don't believe he did.
89. Urgh.
90. As soon as we arrived here we were beaten mercilessly and thrown in chains. As our work progressed on the gate, Stennar formulated a plan. As soon as the gate had any functionality, he would go through and attempt to warn the other side. We knew that his absence would be noticed, and that they would try to stop him.

91. Please, go on.
92. [gurgle]
100. He began preparations to disguise himself as a gnome. He starved himself to the point of sickness, and when the gate was near readiness, he...he shaved his beard. He believed that the full responsibility for what had befallen us was his...he would do whatever he thought was necessary to make things right. Even that.

101. What happened after he went through?
102. huh. He shave beard.
110. They tortured some of the clan to force us to reveal his plans, but we wouldn't break. We knew they needed us to finish the gate, and, heh heh, we had been disabling the gate in various ways for months. For all they knew, we still had months ahead of us to finish the thing, when we could have been finished months before.

111. And then?
112. Hee hee. That funny.
120. They killed half of the clan in a last effort to force us to talk. We still did not break. And now, we are all that is left of our once great clan.

121. I will return to free you when I have killed those responsible.
122. It serves you right, you arrogant dwarf! I hope you rot in here.
129. Uh, I go kill people now.
130. By the gods, you are truly an imbecile! How did you manage to survive?

131. I dunno. What happen you guys?
140. If only we had been there to see it. But fate had other ideas...

141. Can you tell me about what happened?
149. I have something I must attend to before listening to your tale.
150. You have returned.
150. You have returned.
151. Yes, I am ready to hear your story.
152. Can you tell me what happened again?
153. You tell me story.
160. Leave us be, dog!
160. Leave us be, wench!
170. Exactly. King Loghaire should be able to fill you in on the rest [the bitterness in his voice is barely disguised]. He was the one that they convinced to banish us! We were shocked, to say the least...but our king had spoken [he bows his head]. We were told our banishment was to the Isle of Despair, but this is where we ended up.

171. I can assure you, King Loghaire had no idea of their true intent.
172. Log Bare not not what they do to youse!
180. [He thinks for a moment before responding.] Of course, you are right. Our King would never betray us, knowingly. [Loghaire nods, grimly, silently.]
