The Singing Mercenaries
A dwarven town located along the trade road, east of Fallcrest, Hammerfast is the western gateway to the dwarven kingdoms of the Dawnforge Mountains. It’s most prominent force is the Merchant’s Guild, who work closely with Hammerfast’s nobility to ensure that things run “smoothly.” Hammerfast’s trade suffered as much as Fallcrest due to the bandit attacks that occurred for several months before the Singing Mercenaries put an end to the caravan raids. The Merchant’s Guild awarded the Singers a bounty for putting an end to Barton, who had betrayed the Guild.
Hammerfast is the human counterpart to Fallcrest in terms of political relations. While the nation of Kardath is currently experiencing strained relations with the Kingdom of Nerath, Hammerfast unoffcially maintains strong ties with Fallcrest, and the Merchant’s Guild considers Lord Warden Faren Markelhay to be a “friend of the dwarves.”
