Sands of Destiny
The dwarven settlement of Kled controls an obsidian mine in the foothills of the Ringing Mountians. The village is built on the location of a Green Age dwarven citadel called Kemolak. The dwarves of Kled believe they are descended directly from the kings of Kemolak, although they keep this claim from outside ears lest they anger a sorcerer-king in their presumption. From time to time, miners unearth portions of the ruins of the “city of dwarf kings.” Most of the finds are enigmatic wall remnants or bits of flagged flooring heavily inscribed with angular runes. However, every so often the workers recover a crumbling relic of ancient Kemolak. The village of Kled often trades with the monks of the Obsidian Monastary which is a 14 mile journey to the North-West and Kled supplied the obsidian that was used in the creation of the Obsidian Monastary. Of late, Kled has been troubled by a series of raids targeting trade caravans bound for Tyr. A number of dwarves have been killed by mysterious attackers.
