they follow the creek into the large chamber and enni meets them on the otehr side. stirges attack and hit aeron AGAIN!

they defeat the stirges. they want to keep following the stream. enni goes to go under the low ceiling to follow, but smells a terrible smell. no one recognises it.

aeron goes to the south, sees a chamber full of sarcophogi and immediately turns around adn rejoins the others.

ula decides to join the group as she always wanted to explore the clanhold.

they travel back to the stone tooth. daegamar says to go down the stairs near the trog and he will go in through another entrance and ge tthe key to the iron door.

they climb down the staris and aeron enters the first wooden door into a junk room filled with spoiled supllies. they are attacked by a gray ooze. ooze gives permenent -1 ac to aeron's armor. enni casts mending at level 2 and repairs aeron's amror.

aeron kicks in the next door and its obliterated. it is daegamar's room - they go through personal stuff before being disgusted by the discovery.

roper fight. aeron is pulled in.

aeron rages and breaks out of the tendril, snapping it and drops into the water. he grabs the ledge and is saved from being swept by the strong current.

enni is eaten.

karwick kills it with magic missiles.

karwick reache sin the belly and brings enni out.

aeron tells his tavern listeners he finds a +1 wepon in the belly of the beast. a crossbow - glowing with pruple light - sleek and lightweight. all of this in a bag of holding. ring of spell storing also a statuette of obsidian of a dragon, ula says not of dwarven make. Everything in the bag is not made by either humans, dragons nor dwarves.

Karwick "like the most disgusting bag of holding ever"

2 dead dwarves in heavy armor. this dwarf has equipment appropriate to daegamar.


heroes rest in jail cells. long rest.

ring storing had grease pre loaded. karwick loads up the rest of the spell storing with his own.

aeron finds rune carved skull in daegamar's room.

aeron asks enni about the skull. it is ancient dwarven funeral rite. not usually skulls, usually finger bones or the like.

daegamar told the group before that the water is not good. they skip the submerged room.

they go back to the iron door and cast knock, undoing the iron bars holding it.

They come to a room with three dwarven statues. Aeron determines its a trap with his elf senses. karwick "These traps are dangerous for the dwarves living here." Ula says "Dwarves are smart enough not to be caugh in them."

aeron notices a secret door and they go through a hall of dwarven faces only for one to call out an alarm in dwarven as they pass. Aeron jumps out of fright.

Through the next door is a mighty hall. camping in it is three eyeless creatures who yell at them in a strange language. aeron approaches in peace but give the wrong signals. the grimlocks attack.

aerons slays the grimlock leader with a great blow.

the sound of hammering against metal rings from the south. the great double doors, aeron opens. inside they find a cyclops forging a blade and two gimlocks assisting with the bellows. aeron approaches in peace and the cylops yells at the in a language enni can speak.

enni steps up and speaks in giant; the cyclops become enraged. "I think I got thge conjuctions wrong"

aeron jumps across the stream and attacks the giant. But the cyclops attacks back with its molten sword and greatly damages aeron.

cyclops got magic missiled in the chest, fell back against the furnace, covered with molten metal and falls into the creek and dies.

short rest in the bladeworks.

back through the hall, they open a door to the kitchens where they see many tables. One attacks when they get close. attacks karwick.

shatterspike does critical damage to objects. karwick shatters the table.

they find a door to the north that is chained and has a warning in giant "maker of death is chained" - enni translates and aeron decides to move along.

The door to the north-east is opened by aeron and he walks into a cross hall way with a shallow pool of murky water. aeron looks at the pool and a dwarven ghost appearas out from the wall, gibbering in dwarven. it attempts to possess aeron by flowing through him, but fails.

enni fails his ghost save.

ghost tries to touch aeron, but misses, karwick comes up to slash it with his sword and hits. magic sword.

ula's hammer does not damage the spirit as much as the others. they dissapate the spirit.

They search the rooms to the west, barracks of dwarven soldiers. dead skeletons in their rooms, some killed in their sleep.

Karwick is surprised there isn't more ghosts.

Karwick searches the north room and aeron open the door to the south and finds dwarven skeletons. as he searches the room, the skeletons grab his wrist and they attack. aeron calls for karwick, but ula comes to aid. skeletons are defeated.

while fighting the skeletons, aeron backed out the room and struck his sword on the wall at the end of the hall, ringing hollow. Karwick did not hear it.

aeron pushes open the secret door. it leads into a small closet. aeron "hmmm" leans back on the far wall and pushes the next door open.

two tengu oni and a dwarven wight. ula recognises the wight as durggaddin, the smith, given an undeath curse by the oni. karwick thinks this is a dick move.

after fight with oni and wight, long rest.
