After a good night’s sleep, the heroes awakened to find that Neferata had slipped away in the night . . . again. They made a half-hearted search for her, but were not even able to locate her tracks.
Setting Vaengur to watch their camp, mounts, and supplies, the heroes ventured down the tunnel almost 2 miles, to the 3-way fork in the tunnel. After much debate about which way to explore first, it was decided that the right-hand branch (with the sigils indicating the presence of svartalfar ) had the highest priority, since the “Storm King” is known to be hunting the heroes across the world.
Estrid used her wild shape ability to take the form of an Earth elemental and scouted down the tunnel by earth gliding through the walls. She was able to find 2 sets of traps concealed in the walls (one set very close to where the rest of her party was encamped, the other at the far end of the tunnel, at a distance of almost a mile). At the far end of the tunnel she found svartalfar guarding a small complex of rooms and tunnels. She continued to scout by earth gliding around the perimeter. She estimated that there were more than 20 svartalfar in the enclave, with an important-looking leader in charge . . . and she noted an important-looking, glowing circle of runes on the floor in the center of the enclave.
Reporting back to her colleagues, Estrid was able to tell them about all of this, and was able to describe the runes in sufficient detail for Caelrath to identify the circle of runes as a teleportation circle similar to that he had encountered before. He believed that this circle may be a device for traveling to the world of Svartalfaheimur.
And so the heroes prepared to assault the stronghold of the svartalfar . . .
