982BCE: King Cogard elected to build a new capital for his kingdom at a site he had seen while traveling. He and most of the dwarves of Dalleer left, heading north by northwest. Lord Shaelin of the Dwarven Regency Council was left behind to rule Dalleer.
974BCE: To preserve his new capital, King Cogard surrendered to the dragons. Lord Shaelin had sworn an oath to resist the dragons, but he gritted his teeth and followed his king’s orders. The surrender proved fruitful and the bulk of construction on Jord was completed. Cogard invited dwarves from all across Cimmeria to come to a ceremony declaring the new capital as the center of his kingdom.
971BCE: Queen Pristanon gave birth to quadruplets, all sons, named Coldruin, Steffern, Yentbern, and Albirnon.
961BCE: King Cogard sent his four sons to be raised by different dwarven lords. Coldruin to the Terror Mountains, Steffern to the Underdark, and Yentbern to Dalleer. Albirnon went to the Dominarie Mountains to be raised in Queen Shortrastor’s court. In exchange, Queen Shortrastor sent her daughter, Alfeita, to be raised by King Cogard.
905BCE: Lord Shaelin completed his long guardianship over Prince Yentbern. During the prince’s time in Dalleer the city had grown into an industrious multi-racial city. Shaelin’s teachings gave Yentbern a healthy respect for hardwork and the other races of Cimmeria.
Lord Shaelin sent a request with Prince Yentbern to King Cogard. With the guardianship concluded, Lord Shaelin wished to be released from his oath of fealty to King Cogard. Cogard granted the request and allowed Shaelin to name his successor. Shaelin passed over his own son and gave the leadership of Dalleer to Bjorn, a respectable and qualified friend of Shaelin’s.
904BCE: With his vow to King Cogard fulfilled, Shaelin was free to fulfill his oath to oppose the dragons of Cimmeria. He sent out a clandestine call for all like-minded people to join him in Dalleer for an attack on the dragons in two years time.
902BCE: Lord Shaelin took his gathered warband and attacked Kenderax in Fangaroot. Shaelin led his army admirably. They penetrated the city and Shaelin himself slew the dragon. Unfortunately, the kobolds were too numerous. They drove the army out and Shaelin’s body was left behind, never to be recovered.
