Dain's Advisors
Dain's Advisors

Icewell Keep is the underground castle where Dain Frostreaver IV, leader of the Coldain dwarves, makes his home along with his council of advisors. Twelve elders comprise the council who conduct business on the second floor of the castle, while Dain sits upon his throne of velium on the third floor. Dain Frostreaver IV is said to possess both the wisdom of his grandfather, the Priest King, and the combat skill of his father, the War King. He currently seeks vengeance for the death of his father who fell to King Tormax's blade in the War of Yesterwinter, but he is wise enough to realize that his people must rely on their stealth and cunning rather than brute force when continuing their battles with the giants. Dain Frostreaver IV will enlist any willing adventurers in his quest to eradicate the giants from Velious. He and his council offer countless powerful relics as reward for service to the Coldain.

Those siding with the giants of Kael can find Icewell Keep just as lucrative, in an entirely different manner of course. Slaughtering these high ranking officials will earn great respect from King Tormax and his minions. Defeating Dain himself, one of the fiercest warriors in all of Norrath, will earn his murderers some of the rarest treasures in the world, especially for the one lucky enough to personally deliver Dain's head to Tormax. Those who simply displease the court, much less incur their wrath in battle, will often be cast into the pit of despair located in the center of the council's Great Hall. This pit leads to one of the scariest places in all of Velious, as this ancient well is inhabited by some of the most vile and vicious creatures ever witnessed. Icewell Keep is a destination for most adventurers, regardless of their allegiances. Only those siding with the dragons have no real incentive to come here.
