It was a stroke of luck that we came upon the safe room of the dwarven chaplan, we would surely have been struck down if it wasn’t for the chance to rest and recouperate. But I digress, we have been making headway here in these mines, I even had an opportunity to put my illusions to use! A pack of Gnolls were led to a pack of Ghouls and they made short work of each other, more stirges, Flaming skulls and of course Drow and Derplegangers.
We have also made our mark in other ways, tunnels were re-formed and we rescued the last rockseeker brother from being holed up in the very chambers we took rest in.
The only battles left were with the seer, the spider and the shepherd,, and in short time we made tidy work of them – but mainly thanks to Dumathoin. I believe we cut short a summoning ritual and I shudder to think what abomination those dark elves would wreck upon us.
We are given answers, but left with more questions again. The mysterious K or the merchant who has been financing this whole drive is called Tavish Kiro and is apparently a Noble supporting various endeavours. Paying the bandits to take over the area, helping the bugbears search for the Rekamour family signet ring (the half orcs who once ruled this kingdom), assisting the drow with taking over the mines and interestingly seeking a strange journal which the drow claim to not have in their posession. We were unable to question the drow since Needles took it upon himself to kill the last one. I wonder if this was on purose, I could only assume that maybe he could be hiding something deeper from us since I see no real gain from killing the drow before we got what we needed, either that or he just likes making our jobs that much harder! I do wonder if he just likes getting a rise out of Jonathon and takes that to extreemes, still better Jonathon than me and better the drow than us.
There was another reference to an endeavour that the drow were undertaking, but we have not had a chance to translate these papers properly, but I also believe that one of the drow has escaped, I don’t think my friends realise this, or maybe Max’s paranoia is rubbing off on me.
We will have a funeral for those dwarves slain by the drow soon. So sad to see another of this race laid low when they are far and few between.
I look forward to some up coming research! A Dragon! I am excited and terrified at the prospect. I will be taking extra ink for my notes.
