Dungeon masonry gives way to rough-hewn walls streaked with veins of pale green crystal. Mining sounds come from deeper inside the caverns.
A jagged mound of rocks suddenly attacks the group. Forming long tentacles and a maw filled with razor sharp teeth a Roper savagely attacks the group thinking they are an easy meal.
From the other passageways heavy footfalls are heard as Stone giant overseers come to investigate the melee. A warrior from Fallcrest, Ves joins the fray, as Javok, looking for able warriors to assist the team finds his equipment and frees him. The stone giant overseers are using dwarf slaves to mine for ore. They have split the miners into two groups; Orcs and Dwarves. Dwarf slaves and orc ruffians are scattered throughout these caverns. All dwarf slaves wear shackles on their ankles.
Veins of green crystal run through the walls of this cavern, which is bisected by a glittering stream of water that flows toward the north. The stream that bisects this cavern flows toward the north. Two sinkholes, one on each side of the stream, serve as lairs umber hulks.
At the bottom of the southernmost sinkhole is a brass scroll tube containing a ritual scroll (Drawmij’s Instant Summons).
This tunnel collapsed long ago, before the hill giants built their steading above the dungeon. The sound of moving water can be heard to the north and east
The underground stream pours into a cistern through a 5-foot-wide crack in the southeast wall and disappears through smaller, impassable fissures to the southwest. A shallow pool of cold water forms in the middle of the room. It appears the hill giants draw their drinking water from this source.
