Ah, you again! To be honest, I would have thought the Queen would have killed you by now. No offense to you, of course. The office of Royal Messenger just happens to have a rather quick... turnaround. Anyhow, your usual room has already been prepared, so feel free to look around all you like.
Worry not, the glory of the spire will not be marred by the magma-duct when all is complete. It will be difficult and dangerous, but the whole thing should be deconstructed after there is no longer a use for it. If you're interested in seeing our engineers and architects at work, feel free to travel up the slope and look around.
While you're up there, we've also got more... happy news, for Her Royal Highness at least. We know how the Queen is very enthusiastic about the law, and specifically punishing those who break it. We figured out city was getting too big to skirt the eyes of the Her Majesty much longer, so a prison is being prepared, and a few guardsmen will be appointed one it is complete. - Razin

You may have noticed a group of statues on your way in, depending which path you took through the forest. Oh, you missed it? Well, had you come from the north-west, you would have seen these statues. This marks the first battle to take place on our new home. In Mid-Autumn of last year (76), the caravan from the mountianhome was ambushed by the filthy Green Menace, you may have heard about it back in the city.
Be the time our lookouts spotted it, the trio of goblin bowmen and a horde of wrestlers had butchered most of the civilians. The brave caravan hammerdwarves managed to break the cowards' resolve and forced a rout, though the few that survived were mortally wounded. By the time we got there, there was but one surviving dwarf, and his mule. It took a while to get the story from him, as he had gone quite mad. Our would-be rescuers ended up being witnesses to his wedding (to his mule, who also seemed to have lost it's mind).
After salvaging what we could (we desperately needed the animals and supplies we had ordered from them the year before), we decided something should be done to honor the brave soldiers who drove the goblins away from our home. These statues were commissioned to do just that. Admittedly, they're rather plain, as our mason was still learning his trade. Though if he asks, tell him it does indeed look like three armored dwarves killing a green goblin. He's a rather sensitive lad. - Razin
