The mines are not new. They were prosperous generations ago, until the Dark Dwarves who occupy the mountains slaughtered the miners. The mines have been reopened because the massacre has been forgotten. Sign that the Dwarves are going to strike are already apparent - Humans are disappearing from the mines!
(The last statement is true, but it is the Aboleth who is the real cause of this).
The race from the southern continent is actually related to the illithid species.
The troubles down at the docks are the result of public disorder and lawlessness (the were-rats, the actual cause are dismissed as fantastic).

Damondred was the student of a Shale priest named Akos Kinnett. He was one of the few priests allowed to study both divine magic and psionics, which are considered to be the purview of The King of Bigany and his loyal coteries. Damondred was one of the orginal members of The Company Of Wolves and one of the few to have survived a lone encounter with The Entity.
Azaz the twice dead. Lost, thought dead Azaz turned up a short time later in the uniform of the Black Guard. He had completely changed his outlook on life from that of a cut throat to that of one who cuts people’s heads off. He died later on campaign. No body was found and he was not expected to be twice lucky. But he returned to serve the King for many years.
