Dungeon 12: The Stonehammer Clan Halls

Posted by Andy Lawrence on

Our Twelfth Dungeon is The Stonehammer Clan Halls

Another large dungeon today, with more dwarves at the core of it. This one has a few more details in the rooms, and I rolled the rooms randomly but chose what numbers to place them in, so that there was a better flow through the map, rather than just randomly rolling each room as I have done before.

Dungeon Creation Information

Location: In the Side of a Cliff
Creator:  Dwarves
Dungeon Purpose: Lair
History: Creators Destroyed by an internal struggle

The Stonehammer clan built their home in to the side of the cliff that housed the veins of precious minerals and gemstones that had made the clan rich. Like most Dwarven settlements, there where many layers, elevators and a shafts running up down and through the cliff. When the veins started to run low, they dug deeper and deeper into the cliff face, searching for more things to mine.

Eventually they exhausted the resources available to them, and where left with a choice to make. Stay in their ancestral home or wander the land looking for a new place to call home. The Thane decided they should leave, but not everyone was happy with this decision. It led to a civil war, and the ultimate destruction of the clan Stonehammer.
