ancient dwarven crypt, long since been looted; invading dwarves
must have smashed their way through altar on north wall; ancient
air seeping through wall; thru wall narrow path over chasm
statues of paragon; altar on dais; duergar. we’re about to fight.
tough combat; brood drops but we survive.
statues better quality than ones in Hammerheim. Passage leads
into trail. MILESTONE & EXTENDEDREST.
more signs of battle. Closer we get to place, the more we see dwarf
bodies. we discover a bridge over magma. Duergar wounded, fighting Aesgir
& friends. Duergar waiting for something (reinforcements?).
Aesgir doesn’t give a crap about Hammerheim, too busy with his quest to clean out this area. Will not return to Hammerheim, wages endless war in lost kingdom.
We have to hold the bridge and seal it in order for Aesgir to
give his sign to help us. But we also have to prevent the Duergar from rushing past us and killing Aesgir. End of session.
