"Gudmund Ore Bender of the Mountains Black, I am, shamed, betrayer. But not! I did what must be done! I alone stood for the right! Yours is not to judge, mine is the harshest judgement of all. My traps keep me safe, our homes must be protected to the end of days, much evil afoot.”
-A Conversation with Gudmund Ore Bender


Gudmund Ore Bender can be found in the back of Level 3 in the Black Mountain Clan(BMC) mines.


  • Gudmund is the only known survivor of the disappearance of the BMC Dwarves
  • He can provide some information about what occurred, claiming that the clan was exiled to the Isle of Despair penal colony
  • He can discuss his existence and activities within the mines over the last 70 years since then



  • Gudmund does not respond well to Elven players
  • Conversation with him can be difficult as he appears to have suffered some mental illness over both the loss of the Clan and his long years of isolation since

Gudmund Ore Bender was a Dwarf of good standing within the BMC, and a friend of Thorvald Two Stones. However his loyalty to the Wheel Clan ended when he refused to accept exile under their order, and secretly remained behind in the BMC mines. This betrayal and his own long exile has taken its toll on his mental faculties.
