Here the Mountains Whisper
A stone statue standing about nine feet high on the southern bank of Daal’Dorash, the Mountain Whisper is carved in perfect likeness of the great Fjordlord Dun Dorash. The cleaving of Mountain Whisper into two halves, one of which is now missing, was what led to a period of great confusion and loss of faith among the Iron Dwarves, which allowed King Marius and Sidhmal to unite the Daals and overthrow their dwarven rulers.
It is said that when a great dwarf dies, his essence merges with the earth and the rock which form all things, including the mountains which themselves are symbols of the earth’s great power. The Mountain Whisper is a symbol of this, tying the Iron Dwarves with their ancestry of blood and stone. It’s desecration was an unforeseen event and actually thought to be impossible amongst the dwarven people, both due to its size and the accepted notion that Dun Dorash and all the spirit ancestors of the dwarves would not allow such a thing to come to pass.
