The Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun
"Old Man" Storvirk
“Old Man” Storvirk is the discoverer of a major vent of rock where serveral veins of ores intertwine. The wealth of Storvirk’s lode was so great that the entire community of Forgehome moved location to the vault above the lode to explore it’s riches.
After making his famous discovery, the “Old Man” co-founded Storvirk and Pickman Company, the largest dwarven prospecting company in Forgehome, and made a fortune mining the lode.
The “Old Man” still lives having reached the extreme old age of 227 years. Venerated as the settlement’s mayor emeritus, Storvirk happily recounts the tale of how he found the lode when all his companions had given up the search. These days his listeners must show patience, since he invariably dozes off during the telling.
Storvirk is a descended of the dwarves that survived the destruction of Deepreach, and he wishes to make one last discovery before he dies: he wants to find that lost kingdom of the dwarves.
