'Rift on the Shadowfell'
Angie's Character - Dwarvern Barbarian
Brunhilde Granitefist was out one day and spotted a small party of goblins desecrating her tribe’s ancestral burial ground. Enraged by this act of disrespect to her people she went in swinging her axe and took out two of the goblins before the others even saw her coming. Before long HIlde had the goblins right where she wanted them, Bjorn Eisenhammer came barreling in “to the rescue” as if Hilde couldn’t handle herself. It didn’t hurt to have some help though, because not far behind the goblins was a huge ogre that had snuck up on her. Brunhilde and Bjorn took down the ogre together. Brunhilde had always known Bjorn in passing, but after this encounter, for some reason, she found herself drawn to him, and for that reason she put up with Bjorn’s somewhat pathetic but still endearing attempts to impress and woo her. Soon she stopped tolerating him and began loving him. Before long Bjorn and Brunhilde were married, in a double ceremony with her sister and Bjorn’s best friend, and Brunhilde Granitefist became Brunhilde Eisenhammer.This encounter with the goblins and the ogre was the first of many adventures upon which Brunhilde and Bjorn embarked together, and they would frequently be joined by her sister and Bjorn’s best friend, defending the village from orcs encroaching on their territory.
Brunhilda was always one to do things with passion – including defending her romantic territory. One day another young female dwarf in the village expressed her affection for Bjorn, and Brunhilda called upon the primal powers of nature to teach her a lesson she would never forget, and brought this woman to within an inch of death. Realizing afterwards that she had gone too far, she was glad to set out with Bjorn and her sister and brother-in-law, having passed Kord’s test by defeating the orcs, in search of adventure, and held the hope that she would eventually learn to control and harness her rage to put it to good use and help others.
