Subject  The Ring of Two Cousins

Falcone Hawkeye sat disgruntled inside of his small home in Palanthas.For
years he had hoped to become an all powerful mage,but it seemed the obstacles
were endless. It was less than a week ago that he was going to retire to a
small barn outside of Palanthas...this,however,was prevented by his Cleric
cousin Suramuniku. She told him she had many visions the previous night.
Visions of two rings,bonded together by a bond only cousins can share. She
said she envisioned a mage named Tigsvere. Who she said could help them obtain
the rings. Falcone wasn't stupid,and saw these rings as his chance to gain
that power that he dearly sought. He agreed to help look for this local mage.
They didn't waste any time.The next day they set off through Palanthas, asking
everybody about the mage named Tigsvere. All the townspeople were clueless,and
our two heroes were on the verge of giving up when finally a young shopkeeper
gave them good news. "Tigsvere?I think I may know who you're talking about.Try
looking around Ruby Way."

Sensing the day coming to an end,they hurried off to check every house near
Ruby Way. They entered the House of Demilion,and sitting on an oak chair was a
mage. Falcone immediately sensed this to be the mage they'd been searching
for.Falcone began to explain their purpose,but was cut off by the mage. "I
have had dreams of your arrival,"said the mage,"and I know what you seek.If
you want to obtain these rings you are going to need three magic items."
"Mage,I beg of you,tell us what we need!"said Suramuniku. "Be patient,eager
one,and I shall tell all.First off,you're going to need a hammer in order to
forge these rings of yours." "That's not a problem."said Suramuniku,"I have
one at home" Tigsvere chuckled. "Not just any hammer.The Mastercraft Hammer.I
last saw it in the hands of an exhausted dwarf in Caergoth, but chances are it
has spread outside of the city.Second,you will need certain blacksmith's
tongs. These can be found in the possession of a pirate,a shark hunter to be
exact,though his whereabouts are unknown. Lastly,you will need a magical globe
of Krynn ,which with the rings shall be made. Once you have obtained these
three things you must find the blacksmith who works under the waves...he is
the only one skilled enough to forge the rings." Falcone,unsatisfied with
these vague clues,stepped forward."Certainly you can tell us more about this
smith...under the waves?Where is that?" The mage grinned evilly,"That is for
you to find out..."Without another word,the mage disappeared... The next
morning the two cousins sat down and figured their destination. The Dwarven
Mines near Caergoth,could hold the dwarf they were looking for. The journey
was long,and they soon found that it was hardly worth it. The hammer was in
possession of a dwarf named Gronag,but he wouldn't give it up so easily. In
return he asked for a baby,for him to feast upon,and only then would he give
up the hammer. The two heroes set off back to Palanthas in order to find a
