History

Origins

Obskarv was founded as a mining outpost, that grew into a mining town for the Undwarf Empire. In 584PC, the residents of Obskarv rose up against their tyrannical leader, having be spurred into action by topsiders who had been captured by the Prince and broken out by a topsider adventuring party.   The resulting uprising ended up with the deaths of Kudrugg Stoneback and his wife Ezen and the mining town was freed from the obscenely harsh working conditions they were subjected to under his reign.
