The party welcomed a new member at the dearven city, a dwarf by the name of Grimtor. A group of scouts led the party through the mines, and into a cavern complex. A brief encounter with Piercers kept the party alert, but their trip was otherwise uneventful. Once out of the caverns, the party made their way through a pass where they were attacked by a group of Displacer Beasts.
Once again, the party’s druid Aloren managed to skew the battle at the start with a well-placed Earthmaw spell. One Displacer Beast was instantly swallowed by the very ground beneath its feet. The rest of the party made short work of the remaining attackers, and then skinned all three, after digging out the buried creature. The party hopes to either sell these hides, or have them made into Cloaks of Displacement.
The party finally made it to their destination zone with no further fights, and found a survivor from the previous party. A ranger happened to own a Ring of Regeneration, and eventurally was able to fight off the poison of the Wyvern that killed him. Once he had shaken off the poison, and heal all the damage of a terrible fall into the mountain, the ranger started looking for a way to leave the mountain. He first searched for and found the remains of his party, and retrieved some bones to try to have them resurrected.
The party collected 29 pounds of meteor rocks, and made camp for the night in the forest at the base of the bowl they are searching for ore in. Not long after most of the party went to sleep, they were attacked by a band of Trolls, who killed the halfling Barton and seriously wounded several party members. Barton’s body was searched, and the emeralds he stole from the Sundered Dwarves were discovered.
