Greetings and welcome to my introduction!

I am Ferretstalker, no relation. Some lost souls may know me from a couple different games, most notably ESO, where I played the grumpy half-orc Gaegron Snowmane for over three years. Long time! In ashes I'm looking forward to playing as one of them "traditional" mountain dwarfs. Dwarves? Are these dwarfs Tolkien in style? Iunno.

I'm an avid gamer, been roleplaying for well over a decade at this point - got my start in Runescape, of all places - and I'm eager to see what kind of environment AoC can provide for us! Despite being a long ways away, Ashes has me salivating at the potential. I've always been more into the 'play' aspects of roleplay, designing my character and stories around what can be accomplished in-game as opposed to writing out elaborate scenes. Still, I enjoy writing as well, so it makes sense that I'm as drawn to RP as I am!

Anyway, that's me in a blurb. Can't wait to see more of this game and hopefully play with you all!
you can get in it if you're fast

Hello Ferr! I'm calling you Ferr. Glad you can join us!

The dwarf you're thinking of is the Dünzenkell dwarves

Dünzenkell dwarves: Deep in the mountains of Verra legend tells of a forge created by the gods, from whence all Dwarves are originated. Fabled to be the first created of the major races, the Dwarves are said to have arrived on the continents with ships made of stone and steel. Dwarven smiths and craftsmen are found far and wide across Verra. The center of the Dwarven race is the nation of Dünzenkell, found deep in the northern mountains. Dwarven society tends to be heavily matriarchal and their clans existing under the oftentimes eldest matriarch. Dwarves are closely connected to one-another by alliances forged between family guilds. The Dwarven child is marked at a young age with his or her guild sigil. Some dwarves banished from Dünzenkell or having chose to walk a path alone will often have their sigls burned from their skin. The Dünzenkell nation, deep within the mountains of Verra exists the oldest nation in the world. The Dünzenkell have been known as many names over the ages, but only one name has graced the highest mountain, within which their capital has stood since the beginning of recorded history: Dün. The Dwarves of the Dünzenkell rule through a council of guilds. A royal family is chosen once every 200 years by this council to rule. Currently the right to rule falls on the shoulders of King Grimlay. It has been nearly 400 years since a king has lead the Dünzenkell. Traditionally this role falls to the matriarchs of the family. Expeditions are often sent into the Underrealm from Dün; and there many believe lies the source of secrets among the Dwarves and their success with mastering artisanship. Untold magic lies deep within Verra. It’s source not known to many. Dünzenkell has long benefited from this source though. It has fueled the expansion of the Dwarven kingdoms throughout the northern mountains.

Ferr sounds good. I've been called worse!

That's... a much larger blurb than I remember reading. Where did it come from?
