The dwarf took an interest in the rodent's tale, it reminded him of stories Glankbir, his uncle, used to tell him when he was growing up, and some parts were new to him though. "Are they just omission or unknown to him?"
Not knowing which it is, he resolved to remember it the best he could for when he next spoke to the old merchant.
Finishing the cleaning of his gear shortly after the rodent had finished, he moved to lay down, head towards the fire. From his pack he pulled out a large metal and rock bound tome. By the light of the fire he started to read it.
