about Dalyl Alemdan and his deeds done so well.
You'll hear of the time in Luxaz's tower
when the evil god held all in his power.
He bent and broke folk of many races
and kept them down deep in the darkest of places.
He wounded and warped them to follow his will
until at last they had had their fill.
One rose up and began to plot
for Dalyl Alemdan, quelled he was not.
Gathered he leaders from all of the groups.
he trained and prepared thousands of troops.
They revolted and rebelled and they fought and they bled
far underground to safety they fled.
Dalyl retrieved the rod of desecration
and the people founded their [Subterranean Civilization.
Now, all has been quiet these many a year
the folk can live far away from their terrible fear.
Dalyl Alemdan is hero to all
his fame to be sung and never to pall.
So, honor Dalyl by living your best
His only wish now is to be left to rest.
Benighted Bizarre calling children to the show
In the dark times when Luxaz was torturing him, Dalyl kept hold of his identity deep inside his mind, biding his time until something would change and give him the slightest chance to free his mind and body. After about 5 years of torture and captivity, the eight gods were sent by The Great Father to Octisafell to restore its people from the corruption and give them a chance to free themselves. Their influence alone weakened Luxaz's power allowing the strong-minded among the captives to rebell and throw off the coercions and compulsions placed on them. Dalyl Alemdan was one of the first to free his mind. He went on doing Luxaz's bidding until he had a plan in place to free all of his fellow prisoners.
He quietly and secretly contacted leaders from all of the captive races. He started with the Dragonborn and the other Drow Elves. Those leaders worked together to explore the Dark Beneath and find a place deep within to become a refuge for them. The dragonborn recruited the Giants and Dwarves sympathetic to the cause to build fortresses in the deep. While their new home was being prepared, Dalyl began recruiting and training the other races including the Orcs, Humans, Goblins, Dwarves, Raptirians, Giants, Drow, and others to fight and be ready to act when the time was right.
During this time, there were dwarves who could come and go between their mountain homes and Tralfangar to bring metals and gems for Luxaz to use in his experiments. This trade kept most of the dwarves out of the torture chambers. Their freedom of movement also gave them opportunities to share news of the outside world with the captives. The most important thing they shared was the news of the gods. They taught the captives about the gods and many became followers of one god or other. Dalyl became a follower of Relkis, the god of materials. He hoped that Relkis would give him an advantage when it came time to steal the Void Rod. He thought it would be easier for him to conceal and handle it. He was right and in 1500 AG during a prophesied meteor shower on his birthday, the 5th of Relkir, the opportunity came and Dalyl led the people out of captivity into their new home in the Dark Beneath.
While some of Luxaz's loyal servants tried to follow and recapture them, the frost giants brought down a large portion of the Silvervein Mountains and crushed Tralfangar and Thorngrove, the surrounding city. The disaster stopped Luxaz and his minions and they were not able to pursue. Luxaz was hoped to be dead, but alas, he resurfaced a few years later. However, his power was lessened and he did not come after the people of the Subterranean Civilization.
After they were safe, songs began to be sung of the captivity and the Dark Revolt. Dalyl Alemdan was the hero of the tale and was honored as such. He never liked the fame and finally went off by himself to escape the adulation. He is occasionally seen at the Benighted Bizarre, but is rarely recognized. He is still in mourning over his lost heritage and his elven family. He dreams of one day being reconciled with them, but feels that his deeds while under Luxaz's sway were too grievous to be forgiven.

To all the sadness and the strife we could say. 'so long.'
If harmony and peace kept we flowing from our hearts,
Then, nothing cruel or ugly would be there to tear us apart."
