The party found itself at the Crows’ Milk Inn & Tavern. They met a man named Marcus who was apparently was traveling with a cloaked man with an odd tattoo around his eye. Tofu also had a brief encounter with two scoundrelly looking men who said they were in the Black Knives. Lastly, they met a women who called herself Ellis Goodchum.
Ellis said she was a scholar from the capital who had come to Durrus to retrieve scrolls of lost history she believed to be in the lost tomb of a goblin warlord called Keivshic the Resilient. After some persuading, she agreed to hire the party to accompany her through the tomb for 100 gold and a magic sword rumored to have been entombed with Keivshic.
The party traveled a day and a half southeast to the tomb of the goblin warlord.
At the entrance of the tomb the party found a statue of a dwarf that bore the name Fireforge. After solving a puzzle, they discovered the statue was actually a door that hid a narrow staircase descending into the tomb. The stairs led into a large cavern that was infested with rats. Some of the larger ones attacked the party. The party negotiated a broken bridge with roped to cross a pit in the cavern, making their way to the next section of the tomb.
Here, the party found the walls to be ornately carved with scenes featuring a goblin. Mugsey took a ruby he found in an alcove in this part of the tomb. This activated a trap, summoning ghostly goblins the party battled.
Further into the tomb, the party found the sarcophagus that bore the name Fireforge. In the sarcophagus they found a throwing hammer that looked like it was made out of coal. Rayquazza took it as his own.
In the next chamber of the tomb, the party encountered a magical artifice that resembled a goblin deity of some kind. Tofu used arcana to gain control of the the artifice.
Taking a hallway further into the tomb, the party at last found the sarcophagus of the goblin warlord. The sarcophagus was protected by five magical glyphs. Tofu managed to disarm some of the glyphs but failed on the third and activated the trap. The glyphs summoned more ghostly goblins the party battled as Tofu worked to deactivate the remaining glyphs.
