Plot

The Dwarven Riddle Plot 1
 "Lyr desperately needed a king and, struggle though he might, Rogan Kayle knew it was right he be chosen. His bond to the Skylords and growing tales of his brave deeds made him loved by the people as well as respected by his men. But to become king, Lyrish law demanded one must possess the wisdom passed down from one ruler to the next; the secret to Lyr’s magical defences. With the former king dead, Rogan was forced to pursue the secret at its source, where the first monarch was said to have uncovered it.

The Riddle of Gnaur, he who had stored the wisdom of power within magical crystals, was said to only be revealed to those who were at one with magic.

But the Cult who guarded Gnaur’s secrets and controlled his Stonekin servants would not give up the knowledge without a struggle."

— The Aedai Chronicles

Every child knew about the riddle of Gnaur. In the whispering halls of the Ymian library, Moon had read all about the rebellious dwarf who had woven his wisdom into crystals. Ultimately, Jorne had turned him to stone along with his brethren.

She found it hard to believe that a Lyrish king had unravelled the arcane secret of Gnaur and used it to build a fabled magical defense around his city. The Lyrish had always been straightforward in martial matters.

The Dwarven Riddle - Conclusion

The Dwarven Riddle Conclusion 1
 "The wisdom within Gnaur’s crystals had been revealed, but it was both profound and formless. There were no ancient magical defences in Lyr. That which had been invented by kings of old to protect them from assassination, now almost proved to be Lyr’s downfall. But with circumstances as they were, it was proven that simply being honest could yield a crown when the time was right."
— The Aedai Chronicles

Rogan stood before the crowd, the silence feeling louder by the second. The eerie voice of a woman still whispered in his mind.

Rogan opened and closed his mouth, looking like a fish out of water. Elaborate lies and wild explanations surged through his mind, but this was not the Midwinter crew that needed another cheer-up, this was what was left of his people. They needed him. What would false hopes truly yield them?

Slowly fumbling through awkward sentences Rogan did the only thing he could,. he told the truth. To his great surprise, midway through the confession, someone cheered. Almost instantly the rest of the crowd joined in. Rogan later realized he could probably have told them about the contents of his lunch and they would have cheered, glory-starved as they were. But there he was, the now honest king-to-be, adored in all his ragged glory.

Moon withdrew from Lyr, her gaze returning to the Forge. She could have told him that Gnaur’s wisdom did indeed contain very powerful secrets. Secrets that could one day give the mortals the ability to forge Primal Ore. But this would take years and a smith as skilled as Brannoc to achieve. First things first.
