Leader of the Brightbeard dwarves
Personality: I don’t part with money easily and will haggle tirelessly to get the best deal possible.
Ideal: Honor. If I dishonor myself, I dishonor my whole clan.
Bond: Nothing is more important than the other members of my clan.
Flaw: I remember every insult I’ve received and nurse a silent resentment toward anyone who’s ever wronged me.
Ashen and Gertrude met Durok and his band of dwarves outside the gold mine in the northern reaches of the kingdom. The Brightbeards were preventing the miners from working the mine, protesting that it was their mine by right of ancestry. Ashen and Gertrude were called in to negotiate.
After a brief discussion, it was agreed that the Brightbeards would work the mine and give fifty percent of the production to Narland so long as the kingdom provided protection and the funds to restructure the mine the “proper dwarvish way.”
