Campaign Date: November 30th, 1631 Date: November 8th Moon Phase: Full Moon

Enemies defeated:
- 12 Dwarven sentinels (1200)
- 1 Paradox Angel (750

Total: 1950 xp
Treasure and equipment:
- Golden pick and Hammer (2500 sp)
- 7 red gems (50 * 7 = 350 sp)
- Zeno's Arrows

- First party to enter the Hammers of the God (100 xp)
- First party to enter the Rune Dungeon (100 xp)
- 6 dungeon rooms explored (120 xp)
- Secret door found (50 xp)
Total: 370 xp

Events:

- After entering the mountain pass, the party decided to set up camp. The night was fairly uneventful, but in the morning Baral spotted the entrance to an old Dwarf hold. (50 xp)
- The party made their way up the mountain and discovered a massive ancient door covered in ancient dwarven. The party seemed unfazed by the warnings, and entered the dungeon. (50 xp)
- Making their way down a corridor, the party encounter a coatroom with some ancient clothing (that they quickly tried on/looted), and plenty of weapons and armor. (50 xp)
- Around the corner, they encountered a massive vaulted room. Strange purple mist covered the floor up to knee height, preserving a massacre of dwarven corpses underneath it. (50 xp)
- Baral began to make his way around the walls of the room, examining the massive murals carved into the rock. One depicted a feast between many of the ancient races of the world, and another depicted the progression of the Dwarven race throughout time. (50 xp)
- Partway through, Baral was attacked by four undead dwarves, but they were quickly defeated with the proxy chain acquired earlier. (50 xp)
- Making their way to the north wall of the room, the party discovered an altar at the north wall, with a set of golden mining tools on it. Baral's amulet detected some sort of secret door, but it took the party some fiddling to get it open. (50 xp)
- Heading through the secret door, they passed through a room with fountains in it before descending a grand staircase to an underground cavern. Baral's darkvision revealed the bases of strange towers just past the torchlight (50 xp)
- The party continues into the strange cavern, and Baral decides to climb a tower. Upon reaching the top, he discovers that it is a massive crane, and is attacked by another undead dwarf. Thinking quickly, he throws the dwarf of the edge (50 xp)
- Reeling in the cable, Baral pulled a massive metal cylinder from out of the underground lake (50 xp)
- Rowan decided to climb another crane while Baral went to investigate the thing he had pulled up. Rowan's experience was fairly similar, throwing the dwarf off the edge, and she managed to discover another big metal cylinder. (50 xp)
- Meanwhile, Baral had managed to get the submarine open. Inside was the remains of a handful of dwarves, and a cloud of disgusting mold spores. This was quickly solved with fire, in the true dwarven way. (50 xp)
- The party checked out the other submarine, and were attacked by more undead dwarves. Killing them quickly, they secured the submarine. (50 xp)
- Using Rat's rats, they had the crane lower the submarine into the water, and they strapped in for a dangerous trip into the whirlpool. (50 xp)
- After what seemed like hours in the dark, they finally made it into the lower cavern. Swimming the submarine to shore, they found 7 dwarven statues with ominous writing and red gems in their foreheads. (50 xp)
- Key looted the gems quickly (50 xp)
- The party continued south, following some directions from a book Baral had picked up in Psathyrella's library. Finding a caved-in corridor, they dug it out, and found stairs leading down to... (50 xp)
- THE RUNE DUNGEON (50 xp)
- Descending the stairs, rune magic flicked on, and Baral's forehead glowed with light, a rune appearing on his forehead. The first room they entered after the stairs was a simple room lit by Make Light runes on the ceiling. (50 xp)
- However, before they could continue further, Key remembered how much of a paradox it would be that they couldn't use rune magic in the future even though they're just completing this dungeon now, and was interrupted mid-thought by a clarion of deafening trumpets and voices and swords upon shields (50 xp)
- In a flash of brilliant fire, a paradox angel appeared, accusing the party of violating universal law. Their paradoxical existence must be cleansed in the holy fire of God. (50 xp)
- The party killed the angel after a few rounds of combat with a Rail Lens shot to the rings, and looted its ???corpse??? of some weird magic arrows (50 xp)

Total: 1150 xp Misc:
