An except from the Journal of Lhankor Traslocare
…and then when we had finally wiped out the ambush, we had taken a prisoner. There was some browbeating and threatening, but we eventually learned that the guard considered himself dead regardless of what he told us or not. This meant to me that further prodding wouldn’t help, but they kept at it. We learned that they were mostly expecting us, and that there were several traps set up for us. Since we knew of another entrance, we decided to give that a try, since it might help us spring a counter trap. Hopefully there isn’t a counter-counter trap further along.
We made it up the wall to the secondary entrance, and we found that there were some sleeping duegar there as well as a couple guards. There was a loud mining sound coming from further on in, but that was actually an advantage as we were able to subdue (read: destroy) them before the others were alerted. After the customary looting, we moved further along toward the sounds of mining activity in one of the exit passages. Fortunately it seemed that the sounds of mining had masked our battle and no alarm had been raised.
More duergar and guards awaited us. The dark dwarves were demolitionists who turned their explosives on us to some effect , but since we had already dealt with their brethren, this wasn’t much more of a challenge.
Now, we have to figure out where to go from here…
