When the dwarven mines
in the Valley of Sparrows
was attacked by a
swarm of Morphius
, a particular dwarven general was summoned
at the end of 1647 GUE
to protect their illumynite
from the thieving vultures. This general,
in collaboration with the current Head Dwarf Miner
in holding off the buzzards.
dwarven general was overly proud of his soldiers and their precision;
he believed there was not a company of fighting dwarves better than
them. Like most dwarven armies, his men marched to a cadence that
matched the route through the current mine he was protecting. An unknown Sweepstakes Winner (who was on a quest to defeat Morphius) was
able to win the attention of the general by showing him the Dwarven
Sword of Zork. At the same time, this adventurer was
able to discern that the general and head miner were speaking in code,
and through them, learned the passage through the mines.
dwarven general had intended to raid the Citadel of Zork and smite the
evil that dared to threaten their peaceful valley, but before
preparations could be finalized, the entire conflict with the vultures
was put to a halt
when that same nameless adventurer passed through the dwarven mines,
forged the last Flying Disc of Frobozz and defeated Morphius.
- The great-uncle of this particular dwarf was Feebo.
