This dwarven folktale originates from the Low Fores area but is familiar to dwarflings from many clans; it is a favorite of grannydwarves who see it as a character-building story for their young ones, with a moral having to do with persistence - certainly a valued dwarven virtue! The ill-favoured youth who is the protagonist gains his eventual reward from the minor but important character of the Morjual, the humble cave bat from which the story takes its name. Sparkling with humor and little cultural details that make it so obviously a tale from the Thergerim, this tale can now take its place among other much-loved children's fables...
