Burrow Warden and leader of the gnome expedition to reclaim Blingdenstone
Kargien led the svirfneblin back to Blingdenstone nearly forty years ago. He is distraught that the expedition seems to be losing it’s hold on Blingdenstone, and is quite happy the party has arrived to assist.
Kargien requested the party reclaim the House Center, the former seat of government, and therein the crown of the svirfneblin kings. Due to scrying efforts, he believes the crown somewhere within the building.
Though he maintains he wishes to obtain the crown to serve as a symbol of the svirfneblin, a rallying point, some suspect his has more selfish, ambitious plans to wear the crown himself.
