Icehammer Dwarves: Session 1

When we set out from Torunedar, dawn was just breaking. We had left in a hurry, with me only finding out about Berreck’s vision the day before. It was certainly a disturbing fantasy, to think that there were enemies as powerful as dragons and hordes of orcs just roaming around.

Berreck Grimshield

Dwarf male barbarian

Born and raised in Torunedar, Berreck was a dwarf of brute strength. From a young age, he showed great potential as a warrior and seemed to have a knack with any weapon handed to him. With his utter strength and skill with weapons, Berreck quickly became one of the greatest warriors in the defense force found in Torunedar. Although he has the physical strength, Berreck struggles with following orders and has many disciplinary issues preventing him from rising through the ranks. Although it is clear that Berreck is trying his best to do good in the world and rid the world of evil, unlike most dwarves, he seems to have a mind of his own with little respect for the law and authority.

Diesa Starforger

Dwarf female cleric

Diesa grew up in Turendar, where men lead the clan. However, she always thought the person who taught her the most valuable information was her mother, who educated her on Berronar Truesilver, the matron goddess of the dwarves and goddess of hearth and home. Diesa was always surprisingly wise, and took to Berronar Truesilver's ways quickly, adopting the role of faenor with enthusiasm.

When Berreck approached her about his vision and ultimately decided to go out to try and prevent disaster from occurring, Diesa felt compelled to accompany him, needing to make sure he didn't get himself into too much trouble.
