    The Fallen Dwarves of Kala Volkanis; A Descent into Hell.

    Dr Heinrich Vukensbrau.

    Extract from Chapter 3.



    It was with great trepidation that I entered the Swinging Pig, a seedy dockside tavern located on the less than salubrious waterfront of the small river town of ‘Peaks End’. Frequented chiefly by the miners and prospectors that made up the settlements inhabitants, it was here that I had agreed to meet my contact; a Dwarf by the name of Amgrin. Unusually for his kind, he claimed he bore no clan name, something that I must admit piqued my curiosity. It would soon become apparent why.


    Upon entering the tavern, I was directed to a private back room by the proprietor, an ill-mannered, heavy-set man by the name of Gunther. Angrin was already there, nursing a flagon of ale.


    Let me start by saying that Angrin was, in many ways, like no dwarf I had ever met. Beardless and light in stature, he carried himself like a man, long ago resigned to the gallows. Hollow of eye, his very manner was of a fellow who wished nothing more than an end to his days, but had not yet summed up the courage to take the leap. Stooped and frail, he was devoid of the strength and pride that one would normally associate with those of his kind; indeed, it was hard to believe that the wretched creature that sat before me was indeed a Dwarf. Despite this, he did retain some Dwarven characteristics that I have come to know, over the course of my travels; chiefly a prodigious thirst for ale, and a simultaneous loathing for the ’pisswater’ that his human compatriots put before him.


    Let me tell you dear readers, that it was here, after years of fruitless research that my journey truly commenced. Why? Because in the darkened back room of an ill kept, backwater drinking establishment, Angrin told me his tale and my destiny was forever changed.

    All hail! Welcome dear reader, to the introductory post for the tale of Kala Volkanis! First off, thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my humble Blog – your attention is appreciated! “All hope abandon, ye who enter here”, wrote Dante Alighieri as part of his epic 14th Century ‘Divine Comedy’. In a desperate effort to prevent you all from doing the same, I will endeavor to keep this brief.

    I am cm284, a plastic and resin crack addict in my late 20’s and latest addition to the 9th Age content team. Due to my location and work commitments, I do not have many outlets for any hobby related creativity that may strike me, and as such, this blog will provide a suitable venting space. With any luck, some of you miscreants may find it interesting along the way!

    To put it succinctly, the aim of my blog is to create a ‘narrative platform’ for the following;

    • A focal point for a sort of campaign/setting that I have in the offing, including battle reports.
    • Hobby related posts (tactics, painting, terrain making, miniature and scenery reviews etc).
    • A gradual showcase of my miniature collection and fledgling 9th Age armies as they slowly but surely acquires layers of paint… and dust.
    • A place to discus and review rule changes and army books, as well as to bandy about ideas etc.
    • A place to give my perspective on areas and issues that are affecting the hobby, be it company attitudes or business practice, through to negative experiences with player-bases etc.

    As with the introduction, I plan for every post to start with a narrative piece that relates to the main body of the article and all of which links into an overarching 'story', for want of a better term…

    Anyhow, hopefully something in the above has piqued your interest, and that the glazed look in your eyes is unrelated (if so, you should probably get that checked). Lastly, is there anything you would like to see? Did you love/hate my attempt at fluff? Feel free to send me a PM on @cm284, and let me know your thoughts! Feedback is always appreciated!

    In the next Post, I will introduce you to the first of the factions battling to secure the lands around Kala Volcanis, my EoS! Oh, and I promise there will be pictures!

    To wrap up my first post, I will leave you with a quote by Winston Churchill. “This is not the end, it’s not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

    Until next time!
