About Rask Hammersong
At 4 feet 6 inches and almost 200 pounds, Rask is a typical dwarf. His only distinguishing feature are the burn marks on his arms and face from where the smithing apron did not cover him.
He is currently wearng plate mail armor, carrying a shield and a warhammer. A backpack shows under his cloak.
At a young age, Rask apprenticed to his father in the smithy, making mostly small weapons, not allowed, yet, to make the weapon that the family was famous for, the warhammer. He would listen to his grandfather, a renowned warrior in the clan, tell of his exploits agains the giants. He like all other dwarves his age took his place in the militia and he learned to fight. As he grew up, and became more proficient at the forge, one of the great days in his life was when his father allowed him to make his first warhammer, and he excelled in the crafting. Years passed by, and he became more proficient in crafting and practicing with his first made warhammer as his grandfather spun tales of glorius battles against giants. During this time he would go with some of the trading caravans into the underdark where he learned the polyglot trade language of that world, both as a tradesman and as a guard.
Although he was never much of a religious man, he did pay homage to Torag, the Father of Dwarvenkind, and although he would sometimes skip the prayers, he did believe. The fateful day came, when he had decided to perhaps go to out into the world to make a name for himself, like his grandfather, and he was even given his grandfathers armor and shield, and a dirty old brown belt. He prepared for several days for this trip, however on the night before he was to leave, he had a dream;
'Where am I' he though to himself as the surface world sun shone bright on his face.
He heard a voice, "you are on the surface of Golorian" the voice said to him.
Looking around, Rask saw nothing, but hills and valleys, but he felt a presence so he decided to ask a question, "and who are you?"
A powerful and cunning dwarf appears before him, in intricate armor, carrying a warhammer that fairly radiates power. "I am Torag, and I have chosen you for a task. Go to the village of Tranau on the surface. There you will meet a paladin of mine, and he has a special warhammer, named Agrimmosh, that he trade you for the hammer you carry. Stay with the group that he was with, as he will leave for another task that I have given him. To help you on your way, pledge yourself to me and I will provide you with the tools to carry out your duty in this matter."
Rask looked at the dwarf in front of him, and pledged himself to Torag. "I pledge myself to you Dwarf Father. Can you tell me what the task is?"
As the god fades away, Rask hears a chuckle and "you still have much to learn my young paladin. All will become clear over time."
Upon waking Rask said goodbye to his father, mother and grandfather, not telling them of his dream, but made his way to the surface world as his god commanded.
