You had no idea when you joined that the group would become so successful. You are strong, loyal to your friends, and decisive. You are a lover of action, and you hate it when the party starts arguing over some minor point or other.

28 IRONSMITH, the dwarf fighter/cleric, has been in your party since the very beginning. Even though he is gruff and grouchy sometimes, he is always loyal, strong, just, and almost as lawful and good as you are. He is also very wise, and you can usually count on him for good advice. Despite his grumpy nature, Ironsmith always follows orders and defends your position as a leader. Anyone who says an unkind word about Ironsmith gets a strong dressing-down from you. ONTOR THE ILLUSTRIOUS, the cleric, is a powerful priest of Sarkai.
