Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness

Pop. 149, Winter of 351 (Year 100)

Amidst the festivities of the Centennial, melancholy struck Dastot Earthenbreaths. She had complained about being uncovered, though additional clothes had been created.

Dastot perished in the dining hall after refusing all food and drink, leaving behind her lover, Morul Channeltree, who had already suffered through recent tragedy. Ghosts and goblins, fey moods and creatures from their worst nightmares stalking the caverns below, it's a testament to dwarven willpower that more of their people haven't succumbed to madness and melancholy. Dastot's death was a stark reminder of dwarven mortality, causing many to turn to the Centennial games with even greater fervor in celebration of life.
