I. Back at the Camp
At the end of the previous delving, the adventurers go back to the mysterious abandoned camp to rest. They are surprised to learn when the camp-makers return that they are old adventuring allies who had been chased away by snow goblins and got lost in the woods.
II. Revisiting the Lava
The group brings home-made wooden bridges with them into the dungeon to navigate over the lava fissures. They come across more orcs and (after Milhouse is sadly killed) Sly puts a somnariffic spell on them. The spoils of the resulting murder justifiable homicide is a potion of invisibility (taken by Marrieth) and a magical shield of Kor (taken by Dalamyr).
III. Pool of Seeing…
While navigating the many lava fissures the group comes upon a locked room with a pool that scries into many other Kor-related rooms (including one with four chests that greatly interests Carparella). While she and Ken are scrying, the rest of the party hears a large creature shuffling around the corridors. Viktor tries to charm the creature magically but it runs off.
In another section of the dungeon the party comes upon a strange corridor with bats seemingly suspended in mid-air. While investigating this the unknown shuffler in the dark returns. This time Marrieth tries to charm it but it charges the group. The adventurers manage to slay the ogre with arrows, oil and thanks to Dalamyr's bravery, fire.
