This is an interesting character. One thing I like about him is that, while he is a rogue, making him an agent clearly puts him on the side of the law. Also, there are few examples of Dwarf Rogues out there.

I was a little confused by the reference to the Regency in the description. I think when you use that, you refer to the Regent of the Mines, but at first I thought you meant the Regency Council. In any case, I like the idea of the Regent of the Mines having agents in the surface world. I also like the idea that there are dwarves who are working against the Regent of the Mines. I wonder if there could be forces out there loyal to would be regents perhaps going back in history. I could especially see this in the context of Uberstar (the Regent) having gone missing and his son Lortz Kazakhum ruling in his place. Maybe Lortz has a brother who went rogue years ago and is working for the Thonians?

I love how this is making me think about the dwarves of Blackmoor again. Here's an article I wrote about them on my blog years ago.

Hey! Sorry for being late to this post. To answer your question Havard, I did indeed mean the 'Regent of the Mines' and I agree, the liked the idea that the Regent has surface agents who are probably actively playing the Thonians and the Blackmoorians off of each other. The 'Regency' Embassy referred to the Dwarven Embassy on behalf of the Regent of the Mines (It sort of slipped my mind about Regency Council being a different thing).

Also, hopefully this helps for your Article, Rob.
