As the only survivor of our expedition I feel compelled to record the events that have transpired here at Ästekkud¹. There needs to be a record of these events in case others wish to attempt what we did, lest they suffer the same fate. As I suspect I am not long for Boldolxah¹, I will begin by recording the names of my fallen dwarf-kin in honour of their great sacrifice, lest they be forgotten.
¹Ästekkud loosely translates to “Cavepick,” and is the name of the settlement establish by Enamrovod. Enamrovod, or “The Pure Arch,” is the government of Ästekkud. Enamrovod belongs to the dwarven civilization of Esmuldoren, “The Full Diamonds,” which is located south-west of the mountains known as The Skewered Spikes in The Strangled Land of Boldolxah, “The Cyclopean Dimension.”
