A group of hardy adventurers again headed to the Tin Mine, not so much out of a desire to recover the bodies of their fallen brethren, but out of a sense that the goblins are winning. A serious bunch, led by a surly dwarf named Ebben Goblinslayer of the Goblinslayer clan, well rounded with capable warriors Devon and Darem, battle sorceress Serena, and a quick footed halfing cleric named Bila, set out again. Amazingly, they were able to get down the various mine shafts without injury, a rare occurrence thus far in the Blackmire Marches.
After traveling quite some distance through the natural caverns, we came upon some goblins riding wargs. A stirring battle ensued in which goblins and wargs were slaughtered!
With the dwarves and Devon slaughtering wargs and goblins and the women firing arrows and healing, we made quick work of them. We followed bloody tracks to a narrow rope bridge over a rushing river. Of course, Ebban fell into the raging water and nearly drowned. He lost his father’s Dwarven Waraxe and Devon’s shield and was barely able to keep his head above water. Luckily, Bila tossed him a rope before he drowned and he was able to climb up the slick cliff wall. Thoroughly humiliated and without weapons, Ebban convinced the group to head back to Blackmire.
