We slowly uncovered a conspiracy that ties to an ancient forgotten god, one who was worshiped as the god of destruction and undoing. Pretty sweet stuff as we kept getting closer and closer. The armor from Oohgie stopped showing up, but it was okay, we found cheap armor. We made an effort to save the pieces that Oohgie had crafted for us, out of loyalty to our curious, big Crafty-Smith friend. Oohgie never seemed to ask for metal anymore, but we heard him clanging away every night before we would fall asleep.
The lessons continued, with Raj teaching Oohgie more and more about Moradin, but he couldn't answer the most spiritual of them, only being a warrior who happened to be a Dwarf. For the questions about the gods methods, Lucas was there to answer his questions.
“How Oohgie talk to Moradin?”
“You pray, and ask for guidance.”
“Moradin show Oohgie how make better armor?”
“If he sees fit to, he shall guide you.”
“How Oohgie know?”
“You won't, but you have to believe.”
After awhile, Oohgie began splitting the time between speaking with Lucas about Moradin, which he thought was the quickest way to becoming a Dwarf, and practicing his rudimentary Dwarvish, which he used to read his first book. He faded more and more into our groups 'project', a background character. We still cared for him, but we just couldn't afford to baby-sit him as we leveled up. He also insisted on having Lucas ask Moradin if he was a Dwarf yet.
“Moradin make Oohgie Dwarf now?”
“That is not my place to tell, Oohgie.”
“Oohgie pray but Moradin not talking. Did Oohgie do it wrong?”
“It is not my place to tell, but I believe the gods work in mysterious ways.”
“Oohgie understand. Make better armor soon for friends.”
