After Tegan, Brega, Balasar, and Lerissa successfully fought their way through Orewaith’s Harvest Festival arena tournament, they were offered the job of exploring the town’s long-abandoned mine to find the cause of the recent infestation of monsters. Tegan was called away on urgent business, but Brega, Balasar, and Lerissa accepted the challenge.
They were guided to the mine by the young child, Peacock, where they entered and fought off many creatures. Balasar was badly injured by a giant crocodile, so the group retreated to the town to rest up for a day. Upon their return, the party ran into a trap laid by the mine inhabitants.
