"Ah used teh worship the ground 'e walked on!

An' he goes and does this!

Kill him! Kill him now! Kill him for wha' he has done teh us!"

From the sandy beaches of the Abecean Sea to the swampy marshes of Blackwood, from the chilly windswept cliffs of Blizzard Peak to the boiling lava tunnels of the Great Mine, The Dwarves Of The Mountain takes you on the first chapter of an immerse journey, where you are thrown into a society of troubled Dwarves who are being ruled by an iron-fisted King, who of late has begun enslaving, and even killing the Dwarves of their fair city deep in the Jerall Mountains. Your quest is to infiltrate the mountain dwelling to discover the source of the King's new-found madness, while solving clues and completing tasks along the way, even being called upon by a great Dwarven sorcerer. Can you help this distraught society before it's too late? For them, and you?

DLC "The Orrery" - This plugin is necessary to properly show the textures on the main display structure in the Geomancer's Conservatory...

The final battle music is "First Mission" from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core...

A big thank you goes out to Vorians, my mentor, at the Bethesda Softworks Forums for his help with the latest patch...
