TABLETS OF KHAZADGUND ~ISSUE 8 - 12.798 D.R.


A New Tomorrow!        

The brave dwarrows of Durin's Folk have beaten back the evil shadow from the East as it stood before their very doors. With their stout spirit the Ereborian Longbeards have turned the war for the good of all free peoples. A new King takes the place of his father, the legend of the Red Axe forever in our hearts, while a new moon rises with a promise of prosperity.

Yet as pure hope fills our hearts we hear the tale of the doom of Balin's colony and those that went after to Khazad-dûm, a lesson that we must ever be vigilant and crush any evils that may arise to fill the void of their former master. 






Read the latest Dwarrow news (Nargalabî Khazâd) from the Iron Hills (and beyond in the East) to the Blue Mountains in the West and every hall in between.
