After licking their wounds the party sets up a hidden camp by the cliff on the far side of the bridge. Alem inspects the bridge some more and discovers that it’s actually of Eladrin manufacture and is a SAF-T bridge. Designed so that living things can’t fall off.
The troll carcasses are tossed over the edge after being searched to reveal 50gp and 4 large chunks of Jade which Morel pockets. Alem also notices that Xin has taken to jumping 10 meters at a time and has wondered off. So he goes to track her down.
Waiting for Alem to return the party camps out. As night falls a watch rotation is setup. Around midnight a group of drakes wanders down the path.
The party springs from their covers and very quickly overpowers them. As the dust settles Xin lands of Morel who find that she is now about the size of a Bull Mastiff. Alem returns shortly after.
When morning comes around the party heads up the trail. Close to the top they start to see what looks like and old weather worn building at the summit.
Coming down the trail they run into a very haggard looking dwarf with a fully loaded mule taking up most of the trail. Morel notices that packs have the Greyscale logo. Morel has some short words and finds that this dwarf was employed at double time and a half to work overtime and “install some plumbing and do mechanical work”. Part way into the conversation the dwarf falls unconscious (due to sleep deprivation) and the party continues on after pushing the mule up to a landing.
Reaching the summit the part comes to a very pristine (and new) looking door. Morel wraps it with his Axe and comments that the locking mechanism (which just broke) was clearly of inferior craftsmanship. Rex rips the doors of the hinges. Inside the room is nothing but some skeletons on the floor. Entering partway several undead and a mechanical apparatus resembling a whirling dervish erupts from the ground.
Lucious blows a Wight back to the land of the dead and then gets most of his intestines splayed across 2 meters of wall as the mechanical apparatus opens him up. After dealing with this and the rest of the undead, his insides are returned to him.
Up a ramp and around the corner the party runs into a group of humans and an Avenging angel. The angel says that it’s job is to prevent them from reaching his summoner. Thalin says “That’s fine we’re just here to kill the dragon” at which point the angel Charges. It’s existence is ended quickly by Morels Axe and the humans are also cut down.
Alem listens at the door beyond the angel and only hear the sound of dripping water. Rex opens the door to an open hallway. As the party proceeds down, they wall to their backs breaks open and they are swept along. Alem and Lucious notice a hallway leading up, the rest of the party continue along. At the end of the hall is a sunken room with a couple of raised platforms. Alem trails a rope for other party members to grab, which goes unnoticed.
Lucious continues up the hallway to find the Iron dragon looking down into the other room after Morel, Rex and Thalin tumble in. Lucious takes the dragon by surprise and does a great deal of harm before being torn open. Morel uses “Command” to force the dragon to the ground. Rex’s uses his Hammer of Pinning to keep it there as the brains and hart are removed without permission. Lucious’s insides are once again returned to their proper location.
