Kyan grips the haft of his axe a bit more tightly and says "Guardian it is my right to claim Azrik Aglardrak by the grace of the King of Erebor. If his authority has no sway over you then I shall claim it by the might of my axe and the stoutness of my heart. You do not fill my heart with fear for my companions and I have faced down the dread Nazgul. So bring on your tests and let us get this over with our kinfolk are dying by the dragons fire and claws in the Iron Hills and I have no more time to banter with a talking statue."With that Kyan shifts his weight and prepares for what comes next.

The stone dwarf growls "NO MORTAL HAS THE *RIGHT* TO CLAIM AZRIK AGLARDRAK, KING OR NO." It raises both of its hands into a 'ready' position, apparently challenging Kyan to a contest of strength... "NOW, PROVE YOUR MIGHT!"

With a clang of his axe dropping to the ground and a feral snarl, Kyan lunges forward and grabs the stony sentinel's hands. The two stand motionless for a few moments, the only sound that of creaking tendons and grinding teeth. Then, as they take the strain, Kyan forces the statue back a step... and is immediately forced back himself.

Gorbo eyes the axe, gauges the distance, then circles the contestants to get a better view while, completely coincidentally, edging slightly closer to the axe.

The two figures spend the next few moments locked in a battle of raw strength. Both shake visibly with the effort, but eventually, slowly, Kyan starts to gain ground. Finally, with a startling crunch, the statue's hands give under Kyans grip and it is forced to its knees. It whispers "I yield."

Once Kyan lets go, the statue stands back up. Dust and fragments of rock fall from its hands, and rather than looking imposing, it now just looks tired, and... old? It looks you all over, stopping on Kyan as it goes down on one knee and bows its head. "You are worthy, good sir. Take this mighty weapon and do great deeds with it." It heavily falls into a sitting position and props itself up against the plinth upon which sits the Lord of all Axes. The warden rushes over to its side, and gently places a hand on its shoulder. The statue adds "My long vigil is over at last, and now I can rest." It smiles, and all of the life appears to go out of it as pieces both small and large begin to fall off it. The warden stands up with a stoic expression and says "Rest well, honoured ancestor."

Lord Gillion falls to one knee and bows his head to pay respects to the ancient spirit now departed.

Brannadan doesn't know exactly what's going on anymore, but he bows his head in respect as well.

Kyan bows his head in acknowledgement saying"You were a worthy guardian and your deeds will be remembered."He moves over and grasps the axe and lifts it and swings it back and forth a few times testing it's heft"Azrik Aglardrak will be sung of by bards once again. We have great deeds to do with it the kind that haven't been done since my grandfather's time." Kyan moves forward and lays his hand upon the stony shoulder"Rest well in knowing you completed your task with honor."

Turning to his companions Kyan says with a smile"Let us go slay a dragon then."

Gorbo looks almost disappointed that he couldn't spring into action with his plan.  But then, his face lightens up into a big grin.

"We be followin' in Bilbo's footsteps!  'e be bein' scared white, this dragon, when 'e be seein' 'obbits with dwarves!"

with that Kyan booms out in laughter nearly doubling up"aye master gorbo that he will that he will."

After recovering the axe, you follow your guide back out of the lower deeps. You could swear that... things... watch you from the shadows, and they regard Kyan's axe with a mixture of awe and fear. Eventually you reach warmer, better-lit chambers and you discover that most of the population of the Kingdom Under the Mountain is either preparing weapons and armour, or has already left for Dale.

The warden stayed behind at his little camp, and the few people still here are very busy. Certainly no-one stops to speak to you. If you're going to do anything, you'd better take the initiative, as everyone appears to be too busy to hand out orders.

Kyan looks around at his friends saying "Well let's grab what provisions we need and rustle up a cart for the the hobbits and me and hit the road. We've got a dragon to slay and I'm aiming to try out this axe on his neck."
