Brother Gravel’s Story

Gravel was born into the Holy Order of the Maker, following in the footsteps of many of his ancestors dating all the way back to before the great sundering. When Torag struck the world a second time with his great hammer, smiting the unfaithful sending them to Magrim to be reforged and blessing the remaining few, Gravel’s ancestor’s left the Darklands then and began the Quest for the Sky as Torag’s prophecy had commanded. Once on the surface the clan believing themselves blessed, built Lach-Maim in honor of Torag. Life on the surface was not easy for the dwarves they were under near constant attack from an old enemy. The Order venerated Torag and his family with massive statues, and great feats of engineering to protect and defend their new home. They were particularly known for their craftsmanship, with metal and stone superior even by dwarf standards. One of the greatest was the “Ark of the Maker” a mithral chest, believed to contain the heat of Torag’s Eternal Flame.

During Gravel’s final rights to become a full Brother in the order after nearly a week at the forge, Gravel collapsed into fire from exhaustion during which he had a vision. The world spread out below his feet the ground miles below. In the distance he saw 10 gleaming gems one by one they are overtaken by a dark cloud after it passes 5 fade and crumble to dust. Flames erupt all around him and standing before him an azur noble tending a forge. He tells Gravel war is coming the orc are gathering and becoming stronger if Lach-Maim is to hold he will need you, travel to the Temple of the Crooked bow, and collect the “Ark of the Maker.” The Order has been preparing for this, follow the signs of Torag they will guide you. After the azur finished talking he removed the iron he was warming in the fire and touched it to Gravel’s forehead.
Days later Gravel woke in his chamber, one of the Elder’s was looking after him. Gravel relayed the vision to the Elder who told him that he believes that Gravel had met with Ambassador Zurin, one of Torag’s assistants often sent before times of War to hopefully prevent it or at least warn the populace. The ambassador also marks the message bearers as Emissaries of Torag, with his symbol a gold ring seared into their foreheads, a great honor. Soon after Gravel traveled to the temple to collect the ark and find Torge’s Eternal Flame.
