    Edited my post slightly so that its more clear that I'm not saying Eugene's party was the same as Squeaky's.

    It seems to me that the hammer wouldn't have been left behind if there was any possible way to bring it -- it got a lot of attention, and isn't likely to have slipped everyone's mind. Unless it could only be moved by wearing those specific gloves, there should have been some way to manipulate it: some kind of levitation, some other gloves, throw a cloak over it, ... .

    I suppose it could have a "nobody can lift it unless they are worthy" enchantment.

    I can't read all comments right now to see if someone noticed before, but I found it amusing that the Dwarven Song of Freedom has a rock background, with them being dwarves, masters of stoneworking and all that.

    The Black and White and Red all over Dragon of Greendragonsville was confusing, to say the least.

    To say nothing of when he was awarded the Silver Dragon of Greendragonsville for his prowess with skiing on the White Dragon of Greendragonsville slopes.

I wouldn't be surprised if Squeaky went from level 2 when Durkon was born to level 14 over the course of 50 years, regardless of whether he did much actual fate-of-the-continent level questing.

    Hey, don't tell me you kids have heard of Eugene Greenhilt but not the great bard Silvertongued Squeaky?!

    Silvertongued Squeaky and his adventuring party fended off the Blue Dragon of Greendragonsville!
    Yeah, but we're talking from the time Durkon was ordained, not the time Thirden became a bard. And we know that Janna was terrible, and if she wasn't, she wouldn't have anything to learn from him, so he couldn't have been very good either.

    (Alternately, this could all be taken as a view of how many levels Janna has gained in this time; what did someone say Song of Freedom was, 12th level for Bards?)

    Durkon then gets handed over the weapon set maybe with some fancy armour as well
    We also haven’t had the culmination of the Hilgya Curly situation. So we can only speculate.

    But Durkon was already accepted back by Rubyrock via letter, and it was Odin that caused Durkon to be tossed out, not Thor.

    Also, he already has the weapon set (even if you assume he doesn't have the hammer, it doesn't stand to reason that the Church of Thor would either; if anyone brought it back, they'd bring it for Durkon, not the church).

    It's possible, seeing as Clan Thundershield looks like an adventuring guild more than a family of commoners, Squeaky and Janna could've clocked in enough gig time to get to 12th level. After all, Clan Thundershield has more reason than any other dwarven group not to sit around being dishonorable; they're descended from Helheim escapees.
    Also the story needed more Songs of Freedom and it was more thematically fitting the dwarves had it rather than handing over the responsibility to Elan, especially as we've already seen the SoF gag from Elan and it'd miss the chance for a different visual effect and hence a different joke.
    I like that the bards use the Sudden Skylight as a spotlight.
