Greetings one and all fellow dwarfs,

I thought I would take a moment of your time to let you know about recent developments within our family and for you to know how you can assist in making our community stronger and safer - sorry if it's a little long winded - there is much to tell you...

Dagda Earthsunder
Thane of Earthsunder
Armoured Priest of Soulforger


Earthsunder will be eternal


It pleases me to announce that at the start of Noveas, our glorious clan will finally be eternal thankfully to the efforts and support of the following members of our growing family.
  • Dagda
  • Hermish
  • Ashlan
  • Grudgebearer
  • Reshtar Blackfist
  • Gavalar
In recognition of this generous contribution to the clan, these members may now use the title 'Steward' in their dealings with Earthsunder and I would ask that a token of respect is shown to them in your encounters in the future please.

We need more frontline !


Yes, you read it right - we need more frontline - next year is going to be a busy year for the clan and I want more warriors to step forward to bear our banner and to push out into the territories around the Brandins and Brekkans fortifying our position reclaiming lost forts and lands stolen from us over the years - this is most certainly not going to be an aggressive attack upon our friends and allies around us but rather we will be retaking lost areas back under our control.

So if you are an old dwarf itching to pick up your axe again for glory or gold, or a budding new warrior yet to start out your career and have songs sung about your battles, then contact me in order to see how I can assist you with armour, weapons and support to help make your adventures a success.

Missions...


We have some new missions coming over the next few months and some of these have been announced already with lots more planned for the new year - if you would like an adventure set for new members of the clan then all you need to do is ask - if however, you are a more experienced dwarf who needs a tougher challenge then also get in touch as I intend to organise events set at all levels.

Visions...


I don't mean the type of 'vision' you have when the Allfather visits you in the dead of night or the sort you have through too many ales or a bang on the head, I mean the visions and plans for the clan which we should all be working towards... these include the following...

Earthsunder Grand Guild Hall - yes, at long last building work has begun on this and I would urge all clan members whether travelling alone or in groups consider contributing towards this to assist the group - this is a priority and once completed it would enable us to work towards the following (Group CC PCLD348)

Earthsunder Brewery - yes, at long last I have commissioned the setting up and building of an official Earthsunder Brewery which should be completed very soon with any luck. I hope that soon every tavern across the land will stock some of our finest mild, bitters, best bitters, strong bitters, golden ales, old ales, strong milds, porters, stouts, barley wines (for the elves) and finally my favourite strong old ales so that no matter where you end up - it will always feel a little like you are back at home. Once completed, this will count as a business for the clan providing an income and every member shall benefit from a 'large tab' when travelling together (Group CC PCLD352)

Earthsunder Defences - these are difficult times and this was reflected in recent events in the Broken Lands and the appalling show of excessive use of force. I have drafted and commissioned the refortifications of our homes in and around the Brandins including stocks of food, water, armour, weapons and ale enabling us to withstand the harshest of sieges should it come to it. Other measures if required are included in this but these will not be publicly announced unless absolutely necessary (Group CC PCLD350)

Earthsunder Forge
- seems only right that an area frequented by dwarfs should benefit from not losing armour uses and so should any of our kin travel together, they may seek out the services of our local forge who will repair and maintain your amour for free (Group CC PCLD349)

Earthsunder Goat Farm
- now these are not your ordinary goats seen on the side of mountains but instead mighty battle goats strong and fast enough to carry a dwarf fully kitted out in armour and weapons. These will count as 'mystical mounts' and the completion of the farm would enable us to be able to award these to deserving dwarfs at the end of an adventure (Group CC PCLD353)

Earthsunder Bothies and Wilderness Huts - these are in the process of being built across Primus and will be hidden and only available to use by clan members who will be able to see the mysteriously hidden sites across the land - once inside you would find yourself having access to the guild stores and restock your supplies - it would also allow you to be able to benefit from the 'Survival Skill' as if you were a Ranger (Group CC PCLD351)

Business...

I am pleased to announce that recently, Steward Hermish acquired a mine for the guild which is providing an income for the clan - please remember, that if on your adventures, should you come across a legitimate business contract which has our interests at its heart, please do negotiate these and place the deeds to the business into the guild box for us to reap the rewards and plough any profits into more supplies and equipment. Paying for the businesses can be from the clan so please do not think that you would be out of pocket for your efforts.

Chief Steward


I am pleased also to announce that Gavalar (Forum : Edd) has now been appointed as the clans Chief Steward and so responsible for legal matters and negotiating trade deals for the clan. Gavalar will also be able to administer any acquired businesses on behalf of the clan and have access and monitor and our equipment within the guild stores and finances. As mentioned already, should any businesses opportunities come your way, please let Gavalar know so that he can keep his records up to date.

Murder most horrid...


It also pains me to comment upon the cruel and unjust recent murder of our Chief Steward Gavalar by one Lady of the Stars Priest, Effix.

An attack upon one Earthsunder dwarf is an attack upon all Earthsunder dwarfs.

Should any dwarfs be found to be offering aid or assistance towards Effix they are to now consider themselves ostracised and banished from the Brandins. This would not be extended towards their family as it would in olden times but I would ask that in the future, any dwarfs adventuring with Lady of the Stars priests would watch themselves and be wary of their behaviour around Gavalar who as family I would expect us all to rally around, protect and defend.

For what it is worth, I did visit the leader of the Lady of the Stars seeking her assistance in apprehending Effix asking that she encouraged him to hand himself in to the authorities. This was declined and I was escorted from their grounds....

Affiliations...

Finally, to end on a happy note - I am pleased to announce that Earthsunder is now to be considered affiliated with the guild 'Of the North' - please make every effort to welcome any of this group into your homes and taverns with open arms and to offer aid whenever this is asked for from you. Should any 'Of the North' find themselves in the Brandins please send them my way in the Guild Hall or in the Soulforger Church for a warm welcome and a hearty meal !

OOC -

We have a Earthsunder Whatsapp group - if you want to join please let me know and PM me your phone details to be added.

I am keen to recruit more dwarf tanks - come on guys, dwarfs are as tough as nails - if you wish to start one, contact me to see how I can assist you with armour, grulls and weapons

Greetings,

Excuse my interruption to matters...message from Queen Gerehax

Firstly The Queen wishes to pass on her congratulations for a job well done, in the maintaining of clan Earthsunder

My Queen has just asked me just to say Since Al-Macsar is in the Brandin mountains that are
situated on the border between the baronies and the empire in the south, please be aware
there are many peoples in the brandin area who have every right to be there.
Al-Macsar will not be moving to expand territory in any way and the borders are clear.
Please be careful around the Western Forest of Al-Macsar as this is home to our allied Werewolves and their kin, we would
not want any diplomatic incidents there as I am sure you can understand. Obviously if your passing the border towers and
need an ale or more, please do not hesitate to enjoy it, there are some particularly fine and famous brews in Al-Macsar.
The Queen might even pop in if she hears you are in the area and join you for a few ales.
Also make sure where you act is not in opposition to the Empire, as remember much of the territory in the Brandins is
Imperial, and incidents such as recently occurred in the Broken Lands should be avoided, the Queen will not back
the forced occupation or removal of peoples with a right to be there, that are not a threat to Primus.

Hmm tough Dwarves you need, let me discuss with the Queen, she will of course want to know
much more than i need some tough warriors, for what exactly, whose the enemy, what are they..

I believe the message really is be careful not to cast the wrong perception,
and I am sure if you are talking about enemies of Primus, the Queen will send forth aid, she
is busy with important political and worldly affairs at the moment.

The Queen wishes the clan much good fortune and of course plenty of good ale.
Feel free to contact me with messages for the Queen and I shall pass them on as appropriate.

Lawbinder of Al-Macsar

(OOC nice job all, i may come play something, but cant play anything til after Christmas due to injury)

Master Deepstone,

My thanks to you and Her Majesty for the kind words and concern.

Please pass on our thanks for her continued support and allow me to re-iterate what our Thane has already said above:

QUOTE
this is most certainly not going to be an aggressive attack upon our friends and allies around us


Earthsunder Keep is a vast array of tunnels and towers that have fallen into disrepair and daily we are finding more corridors and unexplored halls under the mountains that once belonged to our family. All of our activities, including building defences, are to bolster Earthsunder Keep, and will not encroach upon others in the area.

I'm sure Her Highness will recall that Dagda, myself and several others of our clan came to the aid of the innocent along side the Al-Mascan forces, during the Broken Lands dispute - a situation escalated by the Empire. We have seen first hand, as has The Queen, the atrocities commited by the Empire, and while we are not going to go out of our way to break their laws, we are not beholden unto them.

We are a family, and as such hold no political or professional sway over our kin. Members are free to ally themselves to The Empire, Al-Mascar, Of the North, any Church etc, but there is no requirements or obligations to do so from us. We are ofcourse more than willing to trade with all of the above and any others who wish it, seeking to maintain a level of neutrality and honesty in all our business deals.

Once our Breweries are up and running, we would love to extend an invite to Her Majesty and any guests she wishes to come and sample our drinks and a tour of the reclaimed Keep.

Kind regards,

Gavalar
Chief Steward of Clan Earthsunder

The Queen, will be having a think and will be trying to arrange for one of the dwarves here, to come along
And aid you, if that is acceptable to yourselves....

And she is always somehow able to make herself available for a visit to a brewery,, oh yes a few dwarves
Here would love to visit.

If there is anything we can help with, just let me know and the Queen will see what can be done,
And be careful in the tunnels of the Brandins, we found good and bad in our own tunnels we even came across
an underground forest, which has proved very useful over the years.

Good luck in your exploration

May the ale flow freely
