Venturing through the mined pathway that cut into the earth, the party spelunks their way closer to the meteor’s creature. As they make their way through corridors and caverns, they happen upon a tribe of goblins lead by an ogre named Nautook. Fighting through psionicly empowered and alchemical altered warriors, goblin bodies were piled high while the party explored the underground complex.
A ferocious orge by the name of Rentaur fought to prevent the party’s advancement. After a particularly trying combat, they “convinced” the ogre to yield. It became apparent that, while definitely battle-hungry, Rentaur could potentially become a valuable asset… once they figure out how to communicate with him.
Shortly after, the party attempted to sneak past a goblin settlement to pursue the meteor creature. The heightened alertness of the goblin tribe proved too great; guards quickly identified the intruders and sounded an alarm. A river separated the pathway and the goblin settlement, connected by an ancient stonework bridge and a well-maintained rope bridge. As the goblin hordes began to swarm across the bridges, led by the bloodthirsty ogre slave-driver Natook, the party was at a loss and could only wonder how to stop the relentless tide of goblins.
While the battle raged, Quinn used his mystical energies to set fire to the rope bridge, leaving only the stone crossing. After some time of confusion, Greenman and Aztock noticed a tall statue overlooking the stone bridge. Finally escaping the melee with Natook, Greenman began to push the statue over onto the bridge with Aztock’s help. The statue destroyed the bridge, and after some final blows, Natook fell in battle.
Several dozen goblins now lay at the feet of exhausted executioners. They stand at a bloody intersection looking for rest while brandishing the sword that used to belong to Natook.
