Me open door (after much crap regarding doorknobs and such was delivered my way by Chris) in GrazuulShanks’ room, and Blacktooth see giant model of dam! AND SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP BLACKTOOTH SEE SKULLRIPPER! A SCORPIONSHANKS MADE FROM SKULLS! AHHH!
Me throw dagger at SkullShanks (for 37dam + 4 bleed! A dagger!) and run out. Blacktooth no like. But GreenShanks and FlyingShanks go in and finish job Blacktooth started. There fresh skulls in ScorpionShanks – it kill not long ago.
FlyingShanks checks model in room – it some sort of magic control thing for the dam! We can use to vent water from dam before it burst!
In other room off main room (behind many skulls!) is “engine room” – there two circles, one empty, one have DemonShanks in it. Me ask DemonShanks in goblin about his pool and he reply in goblin! DemonShanks say “help me.” We get more info from DemonaShanks – he say Karzug put him there and he want to be freed. We don’t but we do heal him some. GreenShanks open gates to 0ther circle and get in. Everything better but GreenShanks lose 1 level for now.
FlyingShanks make dam open now that Kali powered up machine! Pressure relieved! GreenShanks and FlyingShanks spend lot of time checking a pool on other side of main room from model room, and me collect GrazuulShanks’ nose!
But GreenShanks and FlyingShanks time not wasted! They find tile in pool that leads to tunnel and secret door! Seems to run to lake – how GrazuulShanks get in!
We leave dam, hear roar of water – dam getting happy. On other side of dam, big gap – BlackMaggaShanks probably broke through and caused the flood.
DefinitelyNeverBeenADragonShanks stays behind at dam to make sure the dam is secured – he definitely not roosting. Nope. We go back to Fort Rannick. River is very high, but holding. There now about 6 men at fort. Me asks about ranger w/ nymph. He might be alive, and is probably held by the Kreeg Ogres at Hook Mountain. Blacktooth ask rangers about where mountain is and about those ogres.
Hook Mountain is about 12mi W and N of Fort Rannick and the Kreeg Ogres have their clanhold there. About a dozen OgreShanks or so up there.
