TABLETS OF KHAZADGUND ~ISSUE 1 12.796 D.R.


Returned from the Ashes!        

As the war in the East comes ever closer we here at the Tablets of Khazadgund are facing our own problems. Bundles of ancient parchment have gone up in smoke as sinister forces have gathered and set our very hall aflame. As one can imagine this caused our monthly parchment to be delayed  tremendously, as we had to seek a new mansion and rewrite many of our articles.  

In other news, the dwarf community is buzzing with excitement about the upcoming wedding of maiden Thrandili, daughter of Uzbad Kandral with Byli, son of Izbad Byl. Read all about it in this latest issue of the Tablets of Khazadgund.






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.
