Session 18-1

Finding Derek

In the large cavern you found yourself in you were not alone. Trolls of all sizes were gathered around a central area and in the shadowy edges more of the horseriders and a few goblins. On the other side of the cavern, on it's massive throne carved with maze-like patterns, a horned troll of humongous size were seen. Making your way into the crowd you came upon a large fighting pit where a man in tatters just defeated, to the audiences' dismay, his latest opponents. As he pulled his blade loose he suggested, rather demanded, that it was time for Rivfader himself to meet him in the pit as he had slew every opponent so far. Before getting any answer one of the Witchdoctors of the horde entered the pit flanked by brutes and Derek were stuck paralysed and hauled off into some structure below.

Session 18-2

The Audience

As the entertainment died down you felt a gaze fixed on you and Rivfader demanded you to present yourself and declare why you have come seeking him. Telling the horned troll you had come for Derek and that your intentions were to bring him back Rivfader offered you a deal. His "pups" had torn from their shackles and were now running freely, if you were to shackle them he would give you Derek in return. Weighing your options, fight through hundreds of trolls or just fetch his pups, you made a deal with the Horned one. One of the troll shamans led you deeper into the Black Mountain, deeper into the old dwarven clanhold. Through half-collapsed chambers and through chambers joined as the mountain collapsed. Underneath rickety scaffolding the smaller trolls had constructed to give them freer movement.

Session 18-3

The pups

As you approached the chamber the shaman gave you potions that would allow you to follow the beasts, as it described them, into their den. Entering the lair of the pups you came face to face with the slippery wolves you had encountered before. First driving them back into their domain and cornering them there while the spirits their prey over the eons clawed and scratched you. Drinking the potions you found yourself in the Ethereal realm, the realm of spirits, and the pups home domain. Weakening them you managed to put their shackles on them and then you proudly led them to Rivfader.

Session 18-4

Leaving with Derek

Rivfader, despite being a being of Chaos, honoured his promise and gave Derek to you as he "had grown tired of him". Quickly you left the Black Mountain and almost dragging Derek away from the target of his furor. Putting the Black mountain quickly behind you the fire in Derek subsided somewhat. Once you had a bit of time to sit down you managed to convince Derek that the best way for him to honour Robin was to continue living and taking up his inheritance. And, as he realised, returning with a Horde of his own to enact his revenge.
