Escort Wilmon Groundbreaker to Breaker's Haven * Vilo Truehammer is leading most of Clan Truehammer in an attempt to reconnect with the dwarves of the homeland in order to usurp Gregor Redbeard's power. * Gregor Redbeard was granted the fief of Rimevale and is the legitimate leader from the standpoint of the King of Vesperin. * Regardless of the wishes of the Vesperin nobility, Rimevale is a border town and not high on Vesperin's list of "Places to spend resources." Accordingly, if Vilo Truehammer were to successfully make contact with another tribe of dwarves and secure reinforcements, he could become the de-facto leader of Rimevale. * Dwarves respect both successful action and legitimate authority. As long as Gregor's representative, Wilmon, arrives soon after (or before) Vilo, the legality of Gregor's title _should _ trump Vilo's claim. * The diamond find in the mines raises everyone's interest level. Gregor received a patent of nobility of Vesperin. Vilo enlisted a (criminal) patron from Mulmaster. A third faction led by a hobgoblin necromancer seems to be involved, though whether the diamond find is the driving force there is unknown.
Petunia's Plight * Certain of the winter fey are severely pissed at Lantfeust for destroying Winter's Heart. * As the only elf in the party that ventured to Draigdurroch's Tower, Lantfeust earned that ire by default. He fanned the flame by setting fire to a forest. While certain more resonable fey know that Lantfeust is not particularly blameworthy, they see him as a tool to steer their bloodthirsty kin and to achieve some assistance at the same time. * A night hag cursed Lantfeust. He is slowly losing his elf-ness. He is tasked with replacing Winter's Heart or somehow otherwise containing the rift it was countering. * The rift has been more active since Winter's Heart was destroyed. Wilmon Groundbreaker is a dwarven priest and can sense it. It is definetely underground. * Both arcane and divine magic is being affected, but arcane magic is more volatile while divine seems damped.
Draigdurroch's Tower * Destroyed the Heart of Winter, staving off potentially disasterous weather for the farmers of Rimevale. * REALLY pissed off certain members of the feywild who had set up the Heart of Winter to contain a rift between the mortal world, the feywild and ??? * Destroyed many clues, but managed to recover a few: * Ramis "earned" the title "Deskbane."
