--[Somewhere in Mithril Hall]--

Brammor pats his mail and straightens his beard, 'Aye, jus fine. Thought ah'd stretch me legs a bit. What're ye up tae?'.
Dalgrim's eyes go wide with remembrance, 'OoOoo dat remoind me o sumthin! Ah finished ye suit! Coom now, lets attune it tae ye.'.

Bolo Trollsmelter - Weaponsmith
E-The Undercity
A large keg of cold water stands near a smoldering pit of
coals. Lengths of metal glow red in the heart of a kindled
flame, while completed works rest in racks along the walls.
A smooth cloth used for polishing the weapons rests in the
center of a large wooden counter at the back of the shop.
A red hot forge has been set up here. (perfect)
A smithy's barrel is filled with dirty water here. (perfect)
An anvil is here. (perfect)
A woollen bedroll has been laid out here. (perfect)
Bolo Trollsmelter the weaponsmith works at his forge here.

Brammor walks in from the east.
Bolo Trollsmelter asks you 'Wit can I be doing fer ye lad?'
Brammor looks on intently, 'Ooo, fine work, dat be. How'd ye go aboot attunen it?'.
Dalgrim grins, 'Ye shall see. Hand over de pieces ah alreadeh gave ye, except dat girtle. Ah goat a bettah wan fer de suit.'.
You are carrying:
a leather pack (perfect)
a large ore bag (perfect)
light mail mufflers (perfect)
light mail ankle boots (perfect)
a light mail girtle (perfect)
Dalgrim walks over to the forge and pumps the bellows a few times making it glow brightly.
Brammor nods and starts removing his mail.
Brammor stops using a cloth pack.
Brammor puts a slender shortsword in a cloth pack.
Brammor puts 102 copper coins in a cloth pack.
Brammor stops using a light mail jaseran.

Brammor gives you a light mail jaseran.

Dalgrim continues to pump the bellows gently and chants, 'All-fatha forge muh tae ye will, shape muh as ye bae wishin.'.
You are STARVING!
Dalgrim plucks a burning ember from the forge quickly and tosses it to Brammor 'Catch and keep it moving in ye hands lad.'.
You say 'Focus oon et.'
Dalgrim reverently pulls out his soulhammer and moves to strike the anvil hard but stops just before connecting with the anvil.
You get a soulhammer from a gold-stitched weapons loop.
You wield a soulhammer in your left hand.
At least you can hold a soulhammer correctly.
A soulhammer feels nice and light to you.
Brammor fumbles the ember but catches it. He regains composure and moves it from hand to hand. After a few moments he closes his eyes, begins to hum a soft, low, and steady tone.
Dalgrim taps the anvil with his soulhammer making a clear ringing tone as pure and smooth as a silver bell.
Brammor continues to hum, harmonizing with the tone of the bell.

Dalgrim holds up the jaseran and moves it close to the anvil. The ringing makes the mail begin to rattle. He chants, 'All-fatha bless dis mail fur it bae tae protect muh kin.'.
Dalgrim drapes the mail over Brammor's shoulder.
You give a light mail jaseran to Brammor.
Dalgrim holds the chausses to the anvil 'Protect muh kin so ee may proclaim de glories o de All-fatha.'.
Brammor's hum changes to a low, 'Ooooooo' . He ceremoniously wears the jaseran.
Brammor fits a light mail jaseran on his body.
You give light mail chausses to Brammor.
Dalgrim holds the girtle over the anvil and chants as it begins to rattle, 'Guide him in de dark tae ye forge's glow.'.
You give a light mail girtle to Brammor.
Dalgrim holds the sleeves similarly, 'Life o a dorf nay bae easy, give em strength All-fatha.'.
You give light mail sleeves to Brammor.
Brammor accepts the chausses and girtle, and interjects two rhythmic chants of 'Lo! Lo!' between the low tones as he continues to don the mail.
Brammor stops using a light mail girtle.
Brammor wears a light mail girtle about his waist.
Brammor wears light mail sleeves on his arms.
Brammor slips into light mail chausses.
Dalgrim holds the gloves, 'Pass ye skill tae him, allow fur his hands tae moike foine works.'.
You do not have that item.
You give light mail mufflers to Brammor.
Brammor stops using polished scarlet mufflers set with citrines.
Brammor wears light mail mufflers on his hands.

Dalgrim holds the mail boots until they vibrate to the anvil's tone, 'Give em sure feet and ye steadiness, fur de road be long and treacherous.'.
You give light mail ankle boots to Brammor.
Brammor slips the mail over his hands then strikes them together, making clanging sound like cymbals that echoes through the halls, all the while continuing to hold the low chant.
Brammor stops using stitched ankle boots studded with platinum.
Brammor wears light mail ankle boots on his feet.
You are STARVING!
Brammor steps into the boots and stomps twice, making a loud thrum, brum.
Dalgrim finally holds up the coif, 'Guard his moind, and seal his memory o de Halls as he travels de lands.' He walks over to Brammor and nods to the ember holding out his hand while offering the coif.
Brammor passes the ember to you while accepting the coif.
You give a light mail coif to Brammor.
Brammor dons a light mail coif upon his head.

Dalgrim rolls the ember in his hand and then rolls it on to the ringing anvil. The anvil's vibrations make the ember dance about on the flat surface.
Dalgrim watches the glow of the ember fade while its dance slows and the ringing fades.
Brammor watches the ember intently, letting the low tone fade into silence.
Dalgrim grins, 'Dat suit bae yers noo, nevah let de pieces separate. Ye nay have tae wear it all at once. But if ye gift dat suit tae another, gift every piece.'.
Dalgrim takes the cool ember and tosses it back into the forge fire.

Chestnut brown hair, long and finely braided, crown this portly dwarf.
Similarly, his beard, a mixture of dark brown and deep red, has been
carefully braided and well-oiled, giving off the faintest sheen when it
catches the light. The impressively long mustache beneath his wide, button
nose has been waxed so that the slightly upturned ends hold their shape and
only quiver when he speaks. Bright green eyes, narrow and deep-set, flash
with mischief and amusement. Though large for a dwarf, he is clearly muscled
and the calluses on his thick hands, particularly his finger tips, indicate
he's not unaccustomed to work.

A well-groomed, portly male shield dwarf is in perfect health.
Brammor is using:
<worn around face> bright beard ribbons (perfect)
<worn around neck> an amulet of communication (perfect)
<worn on body> a light mail jaseran (perfect)

<worn on hands> light mail mufflers (perfect)
<worn on arms> light mail sleeves (perfect)
<worn about waist> a light mail girtle (perfect)
<worn around wrist> a Mithril Hall bracelet (perfect)

Brammor turns to you and smiles, a glistening in his eyes, 'Aye, dat ah'll do. Ye honor me wit a gift ah cannae put to words, boot one day, ah'll sing ye a song aboot it'.
Dalgrim claps Brammor's shoulder, 'Ye honor muh by wearin dat armor and daein great works.' He grins, 'Noo lets go foind some holy water tae drink!!'.
Brammor laughs boisterously, 'Ah thought ye never say so!'.
You snicker.

The Foaming Mug Tavern
W-The Undercity U-Above the Foami
A long bar of scarred stone, inlaid with marble and precious gems,
fills the eastern wall of this establishment. Battered tables and
benches are scattered throughout the room, providing a place to
rest and partake of hearty food and ale. A chunk of beef roasts
on the coals of the fire in the stone fireplace. A staircase leads
to the private rooms of the inn.

Dalgrim chuckles, 'Ee only dain dat tae ruffle ye beard.'.

Dalgrim nods eagerly, 'OooOo aye!'.



Brammor takes another sip and eagerly stands on the bar, clears his throat and begins to stomp a steady rhythm. He beckons you to join.

Dalgrim sways back and forth experimenting with sounds he can get out of the bar, 'Search we did until mithril shown!'.
Brammor grins and continues, 'Fight we did til orcs had flown! Till all da orcs were prone!'.
Dalgrim pounds the bar and chants, 'Ahhh yooosh Ahhh yooosh!'.
Brammor raises his mug and sings to a crescendo, 'We won our ancient home!'.
