Don't give up. I can't give you more specific help; it's been a long time that I've played a dwarf or even the base campaign. I'm waiting for the release of 1.5.
I hate searching locations that I've previously discovered. I usually use the “Go to Landmark” addon
which provides a list of discovered landmarks. It's too late for this character, but I recommend installing it for the next one.
I will definitely have to use this addon for the next character I play. Thanks for the heads up.
Playing as a dwarf & want to return to the Iron Council so I can attempt the Deep Bellow quest but can't find the entrance to the Council. Any help will be appreciated.
Sorry for the late reply. If you still haven't found it, it should be in the mountains up in the northeast. IIRC, both times I played Dwarf it was in the little nook northeast of Last Hope, along the coast, then into the trees along the mountains, east of where the lumberjack camp appears.
Here's a link to the ToME Wiki
which has a whole lot of very useful info.
Thanks for the reply, I had already stumbled across it. I wasn't going east enough in my search.
