Pop. 170, Late Spring of 336 (Year 85)
The dwarves were eager to trade with the elves for logs and wooden cages to house prisoners for the gladiatorial games. Though the centennial celebration was 15 years away, new mayor Ilral Wheelrang want to get preparations underway well in advance. Unfortunately, when the elven caravan arrived at the southeast border, they were set upon by a horde of goblin lashers. The cursed weapons, strong enough to penetrate dwarven steel, wiped out the elves long before the dwarven guards could arrive. So soon after the death of a human diplomat, more and more of Relicshield's citizens are clamoring for greater protection for the kingdom's allies. Opening all the gates of the underground trade network is under consideration.
