Aldus Splintershield is a cleric of Moradin and a visionary. He is the scion of a wealthy dwarf family and has used that position to become the organizer of the expedition to establish a settlement on the site of the Inverness ruins. He believes that he can succeed in taming the region where others have failed. Most others believe that he is a little crazy, but his enthusiasm and his wealth are infectious and he has attracted many to his cause.
