Captain Lawgof is an elderly Dwarven Black Guard captain in charge of the Coal truck mining site west of Seers' Village. However, goblins have been raiding from the south, breaching the perimeter and killing his men. In desperation, he recruits a passing adventurer to help make repairs, check up on a post that isn't reporting in, rescue a kidnapped dwarf, repair the cannon and fetch a mould in order to make cannonballs. Despite his frustration about the goblin attacks, he yells orders at his men instead of helping them.
He used to yell ridiculous orders at the dwarves, such as "Don't just do something, stand there!', which is a Spoonerism of the phrase "Don't just stand there, do something!". However this was corrected at an unknown date before 11 November 2011; he now yells the corrected "Don't just stand there, do something!".
Lawgof was formerly referred to as "Commander Lawgof" but this changed at an unknown point in time.
