Our PCs ventured into the mines.
After walking some distance through the dark they encountered a wooden barrier in the cave.
After some consideration by the others, a voice rang out from behind the wood.
Julius asserted the glory of the lightbringer, to which the voice responded in kind.
The Goblin shaman of Photus welcomed Julius inside. The Goblins asserted their legal right to the cave. They had a deed to support this claim. Supposedly written out to some Dwarf.
Omari was sent back to the camp to ask the Dwarves about another dwarf working with the Goblins. They found out about Durk. Ulthrin claimed Durk could ensnare others with his voice, and so they shouldn’t let him speak.
Omari returned as a goblin proposed either peace or marriage to Thewil. She turned him down.
While the Shaman went to fetch Durk, Julius and Colbin covered their ears so not to be ensnared. Omari hid, and Thewil simply waited.
Colbin charged the Dwarf, taking him down with a single blow, and ripping out his tongue before he could speak. Thus ended Durk. The stunned Goblins attempted to retaliate, shooting bolts at Colbin, but were taken down by Thewil and Colbin. Julius healed the Goblin damaged by Thewil, while Colbin had only knocked out his.
The Goblins sold the deed to the players for twenty gold to build a Church of the lightbringer. Colbin convinced them it was best to do this in the Underdark.
The players returned the deed for the mine to the Dwarves.
