Dwelvendorrow dwarf mine of the wayward mountains,
About this creation
Story: Centuries ago, the dwarves of clan Boulder Shoulder, founded the kingdom of Hivilnod. One of the nobles of Clan Boulder Shoulder, Dalnog, was of an adventurous sort. And he was determined to find a fabled cavern beneath the Wayward Mountains, that was said to have flowing rivers, made of precious metals like Mithril, Black Iron, and many others. This was of course, an exaggeration. But the cavern was quite real, and had veins of Black Iron, as thick as a fat dwarves thigh!(but no rivers of course) After many years of on-and-off searching, Dalnog finally found the cavern, and founded the dwarven kingdom of Dwelvendorow. The kindom stands to this day, and is considered one of the richest in the world.
A full picture of the mines, pretty?
The upper level of the mine, serves as a throne for the king, he is seen here, flanked by two guards
Dargor, third king of Dwelvendorrow
The middle level of the mining complex, I enjoyed putting this part together
A cleric enchants a rune, these are commonly seen in the mines, as they are believed to strengthen the minors.
Here, Dalnog the 2nd, great grandson of Dalnog(his name sake) stands guard over the entrance to the mine
On the side of the mountain that leads to the mine, a lone traveler comes to see an old friend. Who could he be?(a cookie to whomever guesses, shouldn't be to hard)
Here, in the mines, a young dwarf stands guard
Captured orcs often labor for the dwarves
A dwarf minor watches over the orcs
The set without the figs, in the next two pics
I'm fairly proud of the tiling =3
