The Dwarven Boatman is a dwarf that can be found either south of Keldagrim outside the city near the tunnel entrance, which is east of Rellekka, or north of the Consortium palace on the dock to the east. He is also involved in The Giant Dwarf.

The dwarven boatman runs a free ferry service across the River Kelda, which runs between Keldagrim and the mines to the south. When a player first uses him to reach the city, they will begin The Giant Dwarf. Despite his ship being damaged when it crashes into the statue of King Alvis, he will always take players on his ship, even after the quest.

A dwarven boatman east of Donakan's rock will bank any gold ore for you in exchange for a portion of the ore. He charges 20% of the gold ores, rounded up.

If the player is wearing a ring of charos (a) he will charge 10% of the gold ores (rounded up). This is recommended, as the regular cost will reduce profit.
