The Frontier of the Southern Crown

...Then the Depths...
The Heroes find themselves in hidden Tomb

The Heroes have lost their shifty kobold guide down a secret trap door in the middle of Cloak Wood. Tying up Simesyn Trapjaw, the Halfling Thief with a hempen rope down the dark gapping hole the heroes find an abandon hidden tomb now occupied by Kobolds. A single kobold stands at the other end of a 10’ pool of glowing green sludge beginning to swing a sling above his head as he screams in a hissing broken common. The heroes fell the kobold in a swift flurry of attacks. The kobold falls unconscious in the pool of green glowing sludge. The Heroes enter deeper into the room and find, AN AMBUSH!!! Several kobolds emerge from the shadows attacking the heroes unaware. The barrage of attacks. Simesyn is hit by a shot from a kobold sling and finds himself rooted to the floor as sticky glue like substance covers his feet. “Gilbert” Godfrey Wu’Nderkin launches a “cloud of daggers” into the group of Kobolds. Zarra Dawnfell fires a several shots into the group. Thormir Goldfury Charges a kobold slinger behind portcullis. Thormir smashes through the bars with his War-hammer. Ardwile Ea’luth fires a Jinx Shot at the Kobold behind the portcullis causing him to falls prone. The heroes defeat the kobolds and take one surviving as a guide to the “White One.” The next room is a tomb chamber filled with defiled tombs and sarcophagus standing in the walls. “Gilbert” decides to try and use mage hand to get the kobolds to fight one another but a few fumbles later the Kobolds stumble and see the Heroes crouching in the shadows. Zarra bolts from the shadows to the center of the room shrouding herself Cloud of Darkness. Three arrows emerge from the could to pierce the three kobolds. The heroes move quickly to attack their foes but alas as Thormir steps across the flagstone as a single click is heard and his foot depresses the stone. A dart flies in front of the heroes face, the room rigged with a dart trap. But, this does not stop the heroes from overcoming their obstacles. When the kobolds are defeated the heroes find an alter to Tiamat, the evil dragon god.

In broken common, the kobold say, “The white one, he sent us. He’s having us make trouble and gather stuff for him.” Gilbert responds with the “sign of Spock”, “Take us to your leader.” The Kobold responds, “He’ll hurt me if I do.” Gilbert points to Thormir and say’s, “If you don’t he’ll kill you.” The Kobold in sheer fear agrees.

At one point the party suspects foul play from their guide and determined to find the truth Thormir picks up the kobold over his head and spin him as the heroes scream, “TELL US THE TRUTH!!!” They set the Kobold down and he sits down at a rock and a trap door triggers and he falls with the trap door reseting. I shear alarm the heroes run to the rock trying to find the mechanism but no luck. Gilbert begins to examine the rock for what seems eternity as the rest of the party sits by. Until like a bolt of lightening a thought pops into his head to sit and press at the same time. As he does this Gilbert begins to feel the rock fall from beneath him when Thormir jumps to the rescue and lodges his warhammer into the hole and grabs Gilbert.
