A wealthy dwarf with the Elsir Consortium
As a wealthy merchant in the Elsir Consortium, Ironfell has significant clout within the merchant cartel.
Upon receiving a sealed box with the Elsir Consortium crest, Ironfell paid each member of the Hordebane 20 gp as thanks. He stated that the box contained some important information regarding some assets his family had thought to be lost (24 Reaping, 1468 CY)
In response to the fame and renown gained in their recent exploits, Bram Ironfell approached the Hordebane regarding the Karak Lode—a legendary mine all but lost in the history of his clan.
He asked the Hordebane to seek out the Karak Lode using a few clues that have been unearthed from his family history and a scrap of parchment with direction that were recovered from a raid on one of Sarshan’s warehouses in Overlook. The Hordebane accepted this quest, and were paid 1000 gp in gold and gems to prepare for their journey (13 Reaping, 1468 CY)
The Hordebane returns with sad news: the Karak Lode was found, but corrupted. Much of its wealth had already been transported through a rift that led to the Elemental Chaos, and it is clear that many of the Ironfell Clan went mad and killed each other off long ago. Bram expresses his regret, and agrees that the mine should remain closed (12 Harvester, 1468 CY)
