Jahn Telarian

Resident handyman, good at solving problems - looking for a replacement pump lever

“Telarian Pumps - Page 7 ..and then the ground will be fertile again. It's important that the water is not pumped away off-season, because then the yield will be much less when the season…” “The entrance is blocked by a strange stone, though. Normally, young Telarian solves matters such as these, but we couldn't find him.” - Kevin Claymore

Lyron

“Name's Lyron, a stonemason from Fallowfields.I was hired to clear these rocks from the path. “ - Hammerwatch

Normally, young Telarian solves matters such as these, but we couldn't find him. I sent my squire to the library to see if he could discover a way to move the stone.”

Baltzar, the Beastmaster

“I left my big Book of Monsters in the Tower Archives, it contains very valuable information about the dangerous fauna around here.”

Blight the Horrible

Arch-Necromancer in search of the Orb of Night

“Blight the Horrible mustn't get his hands on the Orb of Night, that's very important. He sent in some agents just after the Sun Gates were destroyed. Our mission here is to stop them from stealing the orb. Cause If the Orb is moved out of the temple it will corrupt us all and make Blight even stronger.”

“With the walls down, anyone could freely enter or exit the temple and it's believed that right now, agents sent out by the arch-necromancer Blight the Horrible are trying to steal the Orb to use for his own sinful purposes. “

Captain Danielle Skinner

Mercenary Captain

“Danielle Skinner doesn't want to be here, she was more or less forced into this mission cause of some favour she had to repay. And she dragged every one of us with her. She didn't like me confronting her about it, so she sent me to stand by this grave, 'your future in front of you' she said. I would never tell a mercenary this, so please don't rat me out.”

Crooked Wolfram

Barkeep

“The barkeep left to try and find some ore up in the Tower. Crooked Wolfram left trying to find material to open up his bar again. Perhaps you can help Wolfram open up his bar again? The Old Drunkard used to have some sick gambling.”

Darren Epps

“Duke Delany was too lazy to walk all those stairs to the top, so he just settled around the armory. Duke 'Lazy' Delany is probably rotting away somewhere in the armory.”

Elianda

The Apothecary

“Elianda, a close friend of mine and a great apothecary. She should be around here somewhere, if not, she might have snuck into the mines to restock her supply.”

“Hey! Got trapped in here trying to refill my supply by this magic spring. Don't forget to fill your own flask and I hope you visit me back in town.”

Finn

City of Stone Arena npc/wagon taxi

“I usually send my books to the library of the Sun Temple. All these storms have made it impossible for me to send away my books for others to enjoy. Seems Finn is the only one that dares to take people out with his wagon. Crazy with all these dust devils around.”

The Visitor

Pali in City of Stone

“Like the great djinns and the not so smart elementals, Palis, like myself, could also be dragged into the rift and forced into your world - for us it's a blessing, for them a bane. In our world we are slaves under the djinns and watched over by the elementals. We are experts in curing diseases and ailments and love to help out where we can. Here in your world we hide in deep meditation, the side effect however, is that if the sleep is disturbed, so much energy is released that we might get sucked back into the rift which usually means something else gets thrown out. “

Nimbus

(see Nerys)

Wizard

Magic shop npc, found in Duke Delanys Chamber

“Elzbet, I see… Finally...I was looking for some old ring that might have been in the Dukes position, but I couldn't find it, strange. Anyway, thanks for clearing a path for me out of here, I was trying to find a teleport spell in this book, but it seems someone ripped out the chapter. “

Sha'Rand - Sun Guardian

“History of Aridara - Page 56 ...was shaped by the grim desert. Sha'Rand would later be chosen as the new Sun Guardian and given the power of fire…” “A powerful frost sorcerer named Krilith has gained access to the Sun Altar. Once inside, he managed to summon the twisted, evil Sun Guardian Sha'Rand.” - Richard Cain

“We don't know where Krilith came from or what he desires, but we are sure he plans to use Sha'Rand's power to open the ancient gates in Brightmoor that lead to the Moon Temple in the Northlands.” - Richard Cain

“Then I will use Sha'Rand's power to take over the desert!” - Krilith

Krilith - Frost sorcerer

A powerful frost sorcerer named Krilith has gained access to the Sun Altar. Once inside, he managed to summon the twisted, evil Sun Guardian Sha'Rand. Afterwards, Krilith was forced to retreat to the caves to recover his strength. We quickly sealed the altar entrance so Sha'Rand couldn't escape. When Krilith's power is restored, however, he will set them both free. We don't know where Krilith came from or what he desires, but we are sure he plans to use Sha'Rand's power to open the ancient gates in Brightmoor that lead to the Moon Temple in the Northlands. (Richard Cain, Hammerwatch)

Heroes of Hammerwatch


Thundersnow

The great Blue Dragon, who suddenly came in from the west and settled atop the tower

“When Thundersnow arrived and landed on the top of Shaftlocke Tower, his ice rain began to wear away at the gates of the Moon Temple, causing them to crumble and break down.”

Stone Guardian

“That stone golem you just offed has been killing miners for a long time now.”

The Warden

“The Warden used to be called Peter, no longer will he be tormenting people with his crossbow arm. “

The Watcher

“Where all these strange creatures came from we don't know. And that altar should not have summoned that beast. “

Wraith Councilors

Councilor of War, Councilor of Wisdom, Councilor of Magic

“Those wraiths you just killed were once mighty warriors that stood by Duke Delanys side, protecting him.”

Crustworm

“Page 253 ...an unfortunate side effect of all this has been that the giant crustworms that usually live much further down.. have started to move closer to the surface, several people have been eaten alive in really horrible worm attacks” - Henrys Geography for Kids

Iris

“Page 3 ...cheered by the people and praised by the nobles... Page 15 ...laws that restricted and controlled people's every move were soon quickly passed... Page 40 ...forced snakes down their throats... Page 75 ...during the coup, Iris was captured and forced down from her throne room, which at that time was known as Iris' Court ...she was imprisoned inside The Chamber of the Asp where she later died and was placed in a sarcophagus.” - Ancient History v. III

Nerys

“ Page 19 ...and Elmore picked up the lamp and placed it inside the throne room, he knew that no one would want to enter this place, as it was cursed and damned. The idea was to return for it later… As he and his loyal assistant were about to leave, Elmore slipped and died in horrible pain, his assistant managed to flee out just to see the pyramid sink behind him... “ - Legends and Whatnot 2

"A long time ago, when the Storm of Lifetimes was at its peak, Nerys and Nimbus crossed over from the Magic Planes. Nerys swallowed Nimbus and started to grant his own evil wishes, but he was eventually lured into an oil lamp by an old waning magician and hidden at the top of the pyramid. Over the years the pyramid would sink deeper and deeper into the desert until it was more or less forgotten. By rubbing the lamp, you released the weakened Nerys and by slaying him you freed Nimbus. "

Calis

Raised from childhood to fight the undead and protect the living. Devoted his life to serve the people.

Also known as "The Delayer of Death", at the peak of his career, the cemetery stood empty for many years.

Locations

Aridara

“...was shaped by the grim desert. Sha'Rand would later be chosen as the new Sun Guardian and given the power of fire…” - History of Aridara - Page 56

Aridara Arena

The Arena far out in Aridara, where people go for two reasons. The glory of winning in combat, or the excitement of watching others fight for their lives. “ Chapter 56 The Arena ...traveled from as far as the Eastern Realms to see yet another hero fall in the arena, the joy when someone was ripped apart by those sharp teeth…” - Games of Aridara - Page 924

Blackbarrow

"Used his last breath to blaze the caves and clean out the trolls between Blackbarrow and Fallowfields." (Wylmir, statue)

Brightmoor

An area just outside the Moon Temple “A long time ago, conflicts led to a split in the priesthood at the Sun Temple. Some priests left the temple to form their own congregation up in Shaftlocke, in a small lush area called Brightmoor, heated by volcanic activity from the north west.”

Castle Hammerwatch

City of Stone

The City of Stone, just below The Outlook. These days a transit town for people traveling to the Arena far out in Aridara, once a larger city with an abundant quarry which is now empty and abandoned. Other than the Arena, a new magnet for luck seekers arose. As the Giant Crustworms have started to come up from the depths, the sand has shifted and revealed what is believed to be the tip of the old burial site of Iris, the legendary Pyramid of Prophecy. Perhaps it is worth investigating. A royal burial site probably contains many riches that would favor the guild.

A long time ago, when the Storm of Lifetimes was at its peak, Nerys and Nimbus crossed over from the Magic Planes. Nerys swallowed Nimbus and started to grant his own evil wishes, but he was eventually lured into an oil lamp by an old waning magician and hidden at the top of the pyramid. Over the years the pyramid would sink deeper and deeper into the desert until it was more or less forgotten.

Fallowfields

Lyron the stonemason is from Fallowfields (Hammerwatch)

Used his last breath to blaze the caves and clean out the trolls between Blackbarrow and Fallowfields. (Wylmir, statue)

Moon Temple

The Moon Temple, north of The Outlook. When Thundersnow arrived and landed on the top of Shaftlocke Tower, his ice rain began to wear away at the gates of the Moon Temple, causing them to crumble and break down. This lead to not only creatures escaping but also allowed some foul battlemages sent by Blight the Horrible to sneak in. Blight can't be allowed to get his grimy hands on the Orb, so these agents must be stopped at all cost.

“This ice came down from the top of Shaftlocke Tower, crushed the Sun Gates and opened up a flood of problems. Not only did Blights agents sneak in, someone saw Krilith the Frost Sorcerer escape. This was some time ago, but that person did not see Krilith with his pet wolf, he must have left it in there. Probably too big to bring with him.”

Shaftlock Tower

Some of the worst criminals in the realm have been jailed in the Tower prison. Duke Delany was too lazy to walk all those stairs to the top, so he just settled around the armory. Duke 'Lazy' Delany is probably rotting away somewhere in the armory. No one really knows why the great Archive of books was built so maze-like… The Chamber floors were built for the sitting Duke, but only the first Duke actually lived up there. What did you ever find up there? Rumor has it that a great beast has taking a liking to the top, but yeah, that's just rumors.

The Silver City

…”One day, a delegation of elves from The Silver City knocked on the door (of The Moon Temple). They came with gifts, a hefty load of gold and riches, they only asked for a small favour in return, that the priests would safeguard the Orb of Night. And so they did, deep down in the Lunar Halls of the temple.”

Sunspot

A location in the desert, visible from Outlook, with a large collection of books.

“Hi! Welcome to the temple library. We have the largest collection of books in the entire desert, more than Sunspot, even!”

“Even if it's almost 10 years ago I remember that you could see all the way to Sunspot! There used to be such a great view from up here”

Sun Temple

Jan Telarian has set up some pumps to irrigate the land for farming. However, a control handle for the pump is missing and he is looking for a replacement in the Sun Temple.

Keltonite is mined nearby

“01/25 Just passing by on my journeys, a great selection of books down here! - Daniel the Traveler” - Guestbook - Page 92

““Hi! Welcome to the temple library. We have the largest collection of books in the entire desert, more than Sunspot, even!”

“..and then the ground will be fertile again. It's important that the water is not pumped away off-season, because then the yield will be much less when the season…” - Telarian Pumps - Page 7

"...but the Keltonite was also found to be very useful when creating various weapons, clothing and tools. Not only was it easy to craft with, but also very, very durable…" - Minerals and Materials - Page 19

“A long time ago, conflicts led to a split in the priesthood at the Sun Temple. Some priests left the temple to form their own congregation up in Shaftlocke, in a small lush area called Brightmoor, heated by volcanic activity from the north west.”

The Outlook

“Good Day young Novice, welcome to The Outlook. We arrived here just a little while ago, to see if we could restore the town to its old glory. See, around 10 years ago some evil presence took over the Tower and the Keltonite Mines beneath it. Without access to the mines, the town could not cope for long and it was eventually abandoned.”

Williamsons Pure Lake

During a warm summer night, she froze Williamsons Pure Lake so the King could move his troops safely across. (Ewan, statue)

Magic Planes

"A long time ago, when the Storm of Lifetimes was at its peak, Nerys and Nimbus crossed over from the Magic Planes. Nerys swallowed Nimbus and started to grant his own evil wishes, but he was eventually lured into an oil lamp by an old waning magician and hidden at the top of the pyramid."

Other Things/Misc

Keltonite

Keltonite is mined in the mines beneath the Shaftlocke Tower, it’s easy to craft with, and extremely durable.
