The first day of the two day journey to Shadow Port was relatively uneventful. In the evening they camped just outside the border of the Bitterwood. Each person was assigned a task, and Branan was given the job of finding water for the group. As he was refilling the wine skins with more water, the Priestess appeared to him in a vision and bestowed upon him a Song of Healing.
The next morning, as they picked up their journey on the way to Shadow Port they stopped to investigate an abandoned mine. After some discussion, they decided to go in, just to see if there was anything of value or note inside. As they walked through the mine they approached a fork in the road—they elected to go left. Suddenly, they entered a large cavern that had walls glimmering with Enthilite. As they were picking up pieces of it, they were ambushed by several goblins. After quickly dispatching them, they decided to head back to the fork in the road.
After reaching the fork, they opted to explore the other path not taken. This path led them to an abandoned armory—they picked up an old dwarven sword and continued down the path, where they entered what appeared to be an old throne room. As Branan approached the throne and sat it in, he accidentally knocked an old rusted crown off the head of the skeleton occupying the chair, causing a loud crash to echo through the chamber. From a distance, they could hear voices getting nearer and nearer, until it seemed as if the voices were directly on top of them.
Suddenly, the wall behind the throne room exploded and out poured many goblins and a goblin shaman. After a long and grueling battle all of the goblins lay dead at their feet. Branan saw the goblin shaman’s staff lying on the ground and decided to pick it up and take it with him.
They decided to leave the mine and return to it at some later date. They emerged into the brilliant morning sun and continued on their way to Shadow Port.
