Corruption of Azim
The dwarf Baron Dunis Goldhammer is one of the prominent leaders in Coppermine Ridge. His family has led the mining operations of the mountain city since its founding. He is short-tempered, but has solid business sense.
The Baron married a human, but she fell ill and died after only a few years of marriage. Recently King Heron had offered Tyrus’ betrothed to Goldhammer as part of an alliance. (Coppermine Ridge has often been used as chokepoint which has held off the Validras expansion to the West.) While Tyrus was away at war, Goldhammer took a liking to the lady and was subsequently furious when she was killed. The dwarf demanded that the Paladin be executed.
