After Banagher receives a moment of divine inspiration, the party proceeds to their destination. Following some deft tracking, they inadvertently interrupt a troll in the process of eating his lunch. Most of the party has difficulty getting over their fear, leaving Gronk to fight the troll near singlehandedly. Once the troll was slain (and Gronk severely wounded), the party proceeded to the goblin cave, where they encountered a small contingent of branded goblins, some orcs, and two chaos dwarves. After clearing the caves (during which Gronk becomes even more critically wounded), the party discovers that the chaos dwarves were exploring a previously unknown mine, combining both dwarven and elven craftsmanship and designed for the purpose of mining star-metal. It seems that the final destination of this material is unknown, as all of the tunnels leading out of the mine were collapsed or flooded.
Oh, and Diego sprained his ankle and stayed with the horse.
