“Dwarfkind is not dead while there is still one dwarf alive holding true to the old values of order and stability. That dwarf is me, for I am Rolf, living embodiment of dwarven kind, emperor of the deep mines. For one thousand years have I watched over my children and seen them slowly influenced by the corrupted ways of the younger races. Now they face an enemy most treacherous.
And on their own, they will fall to it, one by one. I have seen this, over and over again. The forges fall silent despite everything, and their silence rings louder than any war bell.
It is time. No longer can I stand idle and watch the steady decline of my empire, of my people, of Law. We will fight chaos, with shield and hammer and strong spirit. Join me in this war, my friend, and we shall strike down this corruption wherever we find it.”
