A foot soldier cut down in the heat of battle by ceaseless, bloodthirsty waves of Orcs (may Moradin’s beard curse their name), Hammer was on the verge of passing out. He coughed up blood and looked around himself once more, eyeing his dwarven brethren as they lay dying around him. Hammer strained and attempted to staunch the wound of his nearest comrade, Fimli. He told himself that at the very least he would protect and save the youngest amongst them, Fimli the Untried. But it was a useless gesture. Hammer could barely move his arm, and he soon saw death approaching in the form of 3 ugly, viciously smiling Orc chieftains. Hammer closed his eyes and made a silent, bitter wish that his brethren’s death be relatively quick and painless; better the Orcs choose him to torture and suffer than for it to fall on his comrades. .

It was at that moment, at the border of death and suffering, that Hammer saw her behind his eyelids: Berronar Truesilver. The Revered Mother. The Mother of Safety. The most beautiful visage Hammer’s mortal eyes had ever come across, and would ever come across again.

In this moment, Berronar seemed to look down on Hammer and judge him; finding his Lawful Good morals and conviction satisfactory, she nodded once. And in his head, Hammer heard a powerful voice assure him: “Do not lose faith.”

Almost before Hammer’s mind could even comprehend this vision sent to him by this high Goddess of the Dwarves, Berronar’s image receded from Hammer’s mind. And yet, vitality returned to Hammer’s limbs. Strength returned to Hammer’s fists. And, most strangely of all, a magic aura of brilliant Life seemed to flow from Hammer’s fingers. A healing aura. One that caused Fimli the Untried, on death’s doorstep in Hammer’s arms, to soon open his eyes and stare at Hammer in wonder. “Brother Hammer…what…”

As the aura spread to the other nearby dwarves, wounds mending, gashes closing, vitality and power returning, Hammer simply looked up. He stared down at the 3 Orc Chieftains who had begun snarling in concern and fear at this sudden revitalization. He stared at his fellow dwarven brethren, all of whom had begun reaching for their weapons once more, strengthened by this sudden turn of fortune. And then he stared at Fimli, conviction burned into his heart, and said “Brother Fimli, do not lose faith. This battle is far from over.”
