Dolgan Tagarson

The reluctant king of the dwarves of the Grey Towers


Dolgan Tagarson was a Dwarf of Tholin’s line. He was Warleader of the Grey Towers and chief of the village Caldara. He aided in the Siege of Carse and visited Crydee during that time from which he had good memories and met Duke Borric.

He would meet the Duke again near the Grey Towers while hunting for goblins with his sons and 38 Dwarves. He found the Duke’s party in a cave and shared with them what they knew about the Tsurani invaders. Dolgan proposed that the party should pass through the Mac Mordain Cadal since the South Pass was blocked and the Straits of Darkness were not sailable during winter.

Indeed the dwarf guided the party through it, also showing them the glory holes and the waterfall of Wynn-Ula. However when they approached the other end, they were attacked by a Wraith when Kulgan summoned a smoke to block the wraith from approaching them. They flew to the exit but Tomas remained behind the wraith.

As Dolgan led them out, he promised to enter the mine once more and find Tomas, should he had escaped the wraith. After following his tracks, he found himself in an abandoned palace, leading to a throne room where the dragon Rhuagh lived, and Tomas sitting beside him.

Rhuagh explained Dolgan that he meant no harm, and just wished for the two guests to attend his deathwatch since there was no other dragon with him. After Ruagh told them about his life, Dolgan, as asked, used a magic rod (left by Macros the Black for the dragon) which rejuvenated the old dragon before vanishing, leaving no bones for the scavengers.

As Ruagh told him before vanishing, he wanted his two guests to take anything they wished from his hoard, especially two treasures found in boxes. Dolgan to his astonishment found that his gift was the Hammer of Tholin.

On their exit, the encountered once more the wraith and bands of moredhel. Dolgan eventually led Tomas to his village 5 days later, and proposed him to stay with them through the winter

Later, Dolgan reluctantly accepted the mantle of king when elected by his fellow dwarves.
