The party came upon a battle scene and saw an unconscious dwarf being dragged by the beard by orcs!  The team rushed after him and found a locked door in the way.  They quickly picked the lock and went through to find orc scouts on the other side.  They unleashed flaming arrows as the party moved to engage.  Two stood to obstruct using battleaxes to fend off the party.  Kalil hit several with a fire snake while Paddy shot arrows back at the orcs.  Rumbald and Boran closed in on an orc while Paddy moved around to flank.  The team took down the orcs and went to the next door.  Paddy and Rumbald discovered a poison arrow trap and disabled it!

In the next room they discovered a shrine to Gruumsh emanating fell energy sapping their strength.  A pair of falchion-wielding orc warlords stood on the lower level while an orc witch doctor stood on a pedestal.  The witch doctor cast cloudkill and harmed the party.  They came moving through as the warlords entered rages and brutally attacked.  Kalil and Boran slipped out of the fog to the side as Paddy and Rumbald soldiered through.  Kalil and the witch doctor traded lightning bolt spells.  A nasty brawl continued between Rumbald, Paddy, Boran, and the warlords.  The witch doctor used a wicked hex and put Rumbald to sleep!  He then began cursing the rest of the party.   Kalil used numerous scorching rays as Paddy’s icy sword Frostburn inflicted grievous injury to the orcs.  The enraged orcs were not finished yet, as one stabbed Paddy through the chest, killing the brave halfling!  Eventually the team took the orcs down and tore down the statue of Gruumsh.  They woke Rumbald from his slumber, and Boran used a powerful divine scroll to raise Paddy from the grave.  The group consumed several potions and scrolls to restore their damaged constitution and life force.  Then, they plunged into the next chamber which they discovered filled with mud!

Within, a sure-footed giant frilled lizard charged to attack along with a pair of ugly cave giants.  Kalil launched a fireball as Paddy cast freedom of movement on himself to be able to traverse the mud.  The fires hurt the creatures badly.  Sure-footed Rumbald rushed in and planted Ragnarok, his giant-slaying axe, into a cave giant’s chest, killing it!  The frilled lizard charged Paddy and shook him up with its terrifying display.  The group managed to swarm in and defeat the remaining two monsters, with the last giant dying by Paddy’s tiny sword, Frostburn.

The group entered the final room to discover the dwarf lying on a carpet, still unconscious.  A trio of hobgoblins and a pair of orcs loomed over him.  One of the hobgoblins cast righteous might and surged with power!  Boran smiled and cast the same spell!  Flaming arrows flew toward the party, and the team moved in to engage.  The orcs and hobgoblins forced the team into a corner, and the battle priest hobgoblin hit them all with a flame strike!  The group could not withstand the onslaught though, and they were defeated.  The team healed the dwarf.  He introduced himself as Fescus Foamflagon, and in gratitude for saving his life, he gave them an ancient handaxe made of mithral that was allegedly enchanted in long-lost Gauntlgrym!
