Strange Dwarf Preaches Cruel Religion

Thorbardin – A strange dwarf woman has appeared in Temple Square of New Daebardin and is preaching the cruel religion of Tamex the Falsemetal; which is causing much consternation among the religious Daewar dwarves.

"This crackpot dwarf emerged out of a condemned building," said Prefect Karak Golden-Eye of the Golden Hammers. "I think it was once a temple to Tamex the Falsemetal from back when we tolerated such things. Anyhow she starts spoutin' all this nonsense about how "she" has returned and will assume her rightful place as the supreme ruler of the dwarves. Needless to say we among the Golden Hammers could not help but laugh."

The strange dwarf identified by witnesses as claiming to be Tamex Falsemetal is of indeterminate lineage. These witnesses say she at times displayed traits reminiscent of the Theiwar, but at other time traits common to the Hylar, Klar, and Daewar as well. Whatever her true nature, this strange dwarf has drawn many to her side.

"There is just something about her," said Ringo Silvergold, Hylar jeweler. "I canna put my finger on it, but I feel she speaks the truth and tho' I know its wrong, I want to fall to muh knees and worship her."

One such incident was broken up by a contingent of Golden Hammers when it clogged traffic lanes in Temple Square.

"Those ninnies," said Golden-eye, "I could not believe I was watching god fearin folk of Reorx prostrating themselves before this charlatan. I rounded up some boys and we forced that crackpot calling herself Tamex to take to her heels. She couldn't stand up to the force of Reorx's faithful."

In the ensuing confusion Tamex escaped being taken into custody by the Golden Hammers.

"We'll get her next time, the looney," said Golden-Eye.
