The Toymaker's Tale
Posted on 10/09/2009 05:14 PM CDT by Producer



His family…his friends…the townspeople.  Every last one of them.

They drove him from his home. They mocked his handiwork. They taunted him for his disability.

They told him he would never amount to anything.


Ostracized and shunned, Hobglup settled in a remote area of the Paasvadh forest, living the life of a hermit.  Deft of hand and keen of eye, the Dwarf spent every waking moment honing his skill and focusing his attention on what made him happy: dolls. 

He tirelessly devoted his time creating wondrously detailed moppets and figurines, perfecting his craft in isolation. For eighty years he toiled.  As he became more and more confident, he painstakingly made his way to nearby villages, leaving the fruits of his labors at the doorstep or window of a home he knew to contain a child.  He would then lie in wait nearby, hoping to merely hear a delighted cry, but sometimes even able to catch a glimpse of joy that his toy had brought.

Finally, he knew he was ready.  He had reached the pinnacle of his ability and achieved a level of skill that no other could hope to match. 

His dolls were ready for the world, so he made his way to the major cities of Elanthia to peddle his wares.

A simple Dwarf.

Horribly disfigured and down to his last chance to show all those that shunned him they were wrong.

Hoping for acceptance.

Hoping that he'll finally make a name for himself.

Hoping that everyone would see what he was capable of.

Join us in welcoming a cavalcade of merchants to Hollow Eve 2009!  Many will look familiar, some will remain a mystery…but not for much longer!
