Josef Bugman Josef Bugman was the most famous Dwarf Master Brewer of all time. To a Dwarf, the art of brewing is a skill as worthy as that of the greatest artisan. All Dwarfs drink vast quantities of ale, and enjoy nothing better than a raucous evening drinking and singing. There are many famous Dwarf ales, and many renowned brewers, but the name of Josef Bugman stands as a paragon of quality. He established his renowned brewery in the eastern forests of the Empire to supply both Dwarfs and Men with his brews. One day, Bugman went up river with a shipment of Bugman’s Special Brew for the Emperor. As he returned home he saw the smoke rising from his brewery. A Goblin raiding party had found the settlement, and there was nothing and no one left. Bugman and his companions swore vengeance on the Goblins for this foul deed and resolved to hunt them down and rescue their kinfolk if they could. Little was heard of them again except for rumors of the ravages of Bugman and his band, of cunning ambushes and night raids on Goblin camps. Sometimes, the band would suddenly emerge from the wilds, tattered and blood-stained, to join up with a Dwarf army before a great battle with the Goblins. They kept to themselves, huddled around their own campfire, with a strange glint in their eyes and their hands clasped around tankards of precious ale.
