From the introduction:
Yesterday, you were visited by a devout dwarf named Gyudd. He explained to you that he was an heir to the lost throne of Clan Melairkyn, a direct descendant of its last ruler, King Melair IV. He told you of strange dreams he was having of late – dreams of a plain black crown bearing a blood-red gem. They have become more frequent and more vivid as he’s traveled closer to Belkram’s Fall, his old clan’s fallen ancestral home. He has taken these dreams to mean that obtaining the crown is the key to resurrecting his clan and possibly rebuilding the lost citadel in Belkram’s Fall.
