The party rested as well as they could, locked in a guardpost within the Hermitage, but they knew it was a temporary rest at best, though they got longer than they expected. A couple hours passed before the door to the hall rattled. There’s another pause, and then the Draugrdwergs began to break it down. Morgana made sure everyone was as far away from the door as possible, and then as soon as there was an opening large enough, she cast Ice Storm, slaying the 5 trying to bust the door down.

Unfortunately the spell was witnessed, a 6th Draugrdwerg was just up the hall beyond the spell’s reach. He ran, and a moment later a shadowy voice echoed down the hall taunting the party. This was followed by an ebony bolt of shadow that zapped down the hall, chilling Morgana, but not taking her down. In return she used her wand and tossed a fireball down the hall. The party charges in after the fireball, but more Draugrdwergs rush in from behind the party. Morgana Ice Storms the ones behind, freezing 2 and leaving the remaining 2 badly injured. Blotto finishes them off. Morgana uses a major illusion spell to make it look like the party has been slaughtered in the hall, and rushes up to join the fight against the Draugrdwerg King.

The fighters are going blade to hammer against the grey dwarves, but the king is making it difficult to make progress. Borumar, bowless, uses his scroll of Fireball. The King shoots Blotto, who takes it personally. Morgana uses the last of her Ice Storms to blast the King and remaining Draugrdwerg guards.

A grim silence settles on scene as the ashen skin of the dwarves fades, and their normal skin tones return… too late for these poor souls. Blotto, listening to the whispers from the crown, puts it on. Koltic tries to cast Remove Curse, but Blotto isn’t having any of it, and demands the cleric stop. Morgana tells Koltic to pause, and she begins the ritual to teleport home. A few moments into the ritual, a pair of shadow hounds charge into the room. Blotto shoots one with the crown, destroying it, while Kotic smashes the skull of other with his mace.

Gains: Gloom Crown, various coins and gems, magic hammers
Kills: Draugrdwergs, Shadow Hounds, King Olan Deepeyes
