(as sung by the desert dwarves of Nybelmar, and roughly translated by a sacrilegous Perennese minstrel who was later unfortunately lost in an Orc raid when his caravan was attacked from the rear...)

Hunyeh HthomEh, Hunyeh HthomEh,
Hear your servants loyal now,
MineLord hear us, MineLord hear us,
On these burning sands.

Hunyeh HthomEh, Hunyeh HthomEh,
Three tasks did You give us here,
MineLord gave us, MineLord gave us,
Under Injeh’s eye.

Hunyeh HthomEh, Hunyeh HthomEh,
Orcs to slaughter, Orcs to slay.
MineLord aid us, MineLord aid us,
With our blooded hands.

Hunyeh HthomEh, Hunyeh HthomEh,
Water finding in the sand.
MineLord feed us, MineLord feed us,
In these caverns dry.


"Although the rest of their practices are not known in detail, it is believed that they must complete three rituals in life, and repeat them as many times as possible to attain credit with Hunyeh Hthom; the slaughter of an Orc, the digging of a well, and the faithful completion of a service (such as a caravan brought safely to its destination).   This suspicion is reinforced with a saying that merchants claim to have heard at times from their Dwarven guards:   “Green blood, clean water, gold hands...these three a Nybermargerim make.”.."  

from the authoritative reference tome "Of the Stone Folk", by Sage Alkemus of Bardavos

Nice.

Now I am curious about Sage Alkemus.
