Session 10-1

A Derro on a leash

With Droki on a leash and very eager to continue his errants, without boots, he led you along his path. And right into where some Derro held in cages some now starved owlbears. Seeing Droki leashed by strangers they quickly released the owlbears who decided you looked like dinner. With the owlbears and their handlers dispatched Droki pulled you towards a narrow crack in the wall, directing you towards it. As all of you, including Droki, were too big for the crack he told you to eat some pygmywort fungi. Eating some, Droki shrank to fit into the crack and got free of the rope. Quickly following his example you took up the miniature hunt of him. But Droki is Droki and knew these passages like the back of his hand so he easily ran away from you. Again.

Session 10-2

A trap!

Following the crack Drocki ran away from you in, you before long emerged in a larger cavern. Hiding in the fungi patch at the crack you saw Droki handing over some items to the Derro savant in the cavern before heading away again. Catching a glimpse you spotted a ritual of some kind on a terrace. Deciding that they were not who you were looking for you decided to try and sneak past, but were heard. With the Derro cultists and their pets coming after you it was time to bolt, and Dag bolted straight into a pittrap. Once you got him up the cultist were on you. Spells slung, friendly fireballs exchanged and the Derro savant roasting Prince Derendil with a mighty lightning bolt.

Session 10-3

Twice incriminated

With the Derro cultists slain and Prince Derendil as well you took a look at what the cultists were up to. In the centre of the ritual you saw a small statue resembling a giant with a clay extra head attached. You also found a small box, the same box Droki had on him before, with some giant hairs and toenail clippings. And the most incriminating of all, a small journal with a paper listing all the giants in the Cairngorn Cavern. Looking further through the journal, apart from arcane schematics, you found what resembled an inventory ledger and with how and what payed with. Several occasions of surface coins which "appeared out of thin air at the obelisk", and that the obelisk were taken over by the Duergar. Well tested you decided to for now head out of the Whorlstone tunnels and to report some of your findings. Telling Stonespeaker Hgraam about the Derro cultists and their rituals made the normally calm and cautions giant burst into rage. After rewarding you he called his entourage to gather, he had some words to give to the Duergar king.

Session 10-4

Rats ratting

Knowing, more or less, who stole Themberchaud's egg you decided to seek out the dragon to tell on Saltbaron. Finding your way to it's lair it's keepers were forcefully ordered to let you in. Inside you found the corpulent dragon sitting on a pile of treasure enjoying a slave-snack. Telling the dragon what you knew you earned it's gratitude, but not before it got the chance to taunt Zarrah for her influence enabling the theft to take place. Feeling generous Themberchaud allowed the party grab what treasure they desired, but they had to be clear of it before the carcass hit the ground. Then he started flying up with a cow-like carcass in it's claws, and you dove in.
