As the sun sets properly the five Dwarves make the top of the stair and set down their heavy packs, puffing and blowing from the climb, before introducing themselves with the doffing of caps and the flourishing of deep bows in the Dwarf fashion.
They are Hrok, son of Brok of Blacklock, a dubious ancestry to be sure, but Hrok appears to be a doubty fighter.
Then there is Oin of Ironload, a toerag of a Dwarf who carries with him a beautifully crafted harp, and brings three hirelings; Glorban, Yori, Ugrik, all Dwarves.
It is well that their packs appear loaded with supplies. Perhaps they may have brought with them enough to fill out the present short stores?
