After the siege of Highvale is lifted, the group rested and decided to head to the occupied mines.
The group assaults the mine entrance under the cover of magical fog and a battering ram. Once through the gate, goblins and kobolds are slaughtered.
The group pushes deeper into the mines, past goblin dogs and more goblins.
We find a mine cart. Kobolds and goblins spring a trap from behind cover, but we drive the cart through their lines.
The cart explodes through a barricade, loses speed as it enters a chamber full of flying snakes and goblins. The snakes are poisonous.
The cart pivots on a rail turntable as we fight off the snakes and goblins. Everyone piles in as the track crosses a deep chasm.
At the end of the chasm an ogre and goblin henchmen block the track. We veer the cart on to a new track and drop the ogre with focused fire. A few goblins desperately cling to life, but are crunched beneath the cart’s wheels.
The cart enters a chamber where goblins and drow discuss business. The drow believe they are betrayed and the group convinces them of the goblins duplicity. The lead drow incinerates the goblins with a spell before teleporting away, leaving his guards behind.
The remaining dark elves, a spell caster and a quick warrior, fight like devils. The pair press us hard, leaving Jaspar and Ianril bloody, but are outnumbered and fall.
We free the captive villagers and return to Highvale, rewarded only with their gratitude after the drow’s impressive array of magical items disintegrates in the morning sunlight.
