The Drow Invaders[ | ]

Kozin Xorlarrin, a drow with a spider tattoo on his face, is ascending the steps that lead to the yakfolk village and the entrance to Ironslag. With him is a small drow contingent. They spot the remains of the chimera that the group killed on their way in.[1] They see Harshnag's giant bird flying nearby.

Kozin shoots it with a crossbow bolt. The drow sleep poison kicks in, and the bird falls all the way to the ground. The band of drow enter the complex, and make their way down to the huge room that the group is fighting the fire giants in. The drow observe from the shadows.

Strix and Evelyn are making death saves. Waffles, the baby owlbear, actually runs over to the drow to either say hello or sniff them.

Diath has a sword at Brimskarda's throat. He tries to hold her hostage, but his intimidation roll does not inspire fear in the surrounding fire giants. Zalto is sure that Diath’s tiny little sword can’t do his wife great harm.

Kozin casts a darkness spell to give the heroes cover to escape, which outrages the other drow. Their only task here is to deliver a magical iron flask to the fire giants.

Diath stabs the duchess and does 24 points of damage. He springs off of her and runs, looking for Evelyn and Strix.

The female drow shoots Paultin and now he's down. It's just Diath and Kozin. Evelyn fails her second death save.

Diath stabilizes Evelyn.

The Iron Flask[ | ]

The drow go to hand over the iron flask to the giants. Kozin tries to trip them up. The drow are furious. Kozin starts running. One of the drow hits him with a lightning bolt.

The group and Kozin run into the kitchen. They have been on the brink of death for a few sessions now, and they are desperate to get out of this situation. They bump into Jasper the dwarf, who casts a mass healing spell on them. The group realizes that Jasper is the dwarf that they freed from the cage in the Duke’s maul.

The group casts a darkness spell to cover their escape, but the giants are nearby, and they can hear the group talking. Strix looks at the chimney and realizes the group can climb up and out. The giants can’t fit in the chimney.

The heroes roll really well on their climb checks and they ascend safely. They emerge in a cave. Evelyn has an idea to block the chimney exit with a boulder.

The Legend of Maegara[ | ]

The waffle crew takes a minute to rest... and now Kozin is trying to convince them to go back in. The group does not like the idea. They are hurt very badly and really need to take a rest.

Kozin explains that the giants have the iron flask, and that the flask contains Maegara, a fire primordial. With it, they can assemble and animate the vonindod.

The drow further explains that if the iron flask is opened normally, Maegara will be free.. He says that, in theory, Maegara could be used to melt that adamantine heart of the vonindod. Destroying the heart will not only end the threat, it will cause the entire mountain to explode.

Paultin notes that the waffle hut might protect them from the explosion.

The drow realizes that Maegara might already be freed down there. End of session.
