Our heroes arrive at the goblins lair where they find two passages heading deeper into the earth. They choose the southern passage and enter the room…
Two ornate braziers cast a faint red glow around this large chamber. Thickly scented smoke clouds the air before disappearing through small ventilation holes in the stone ceiling. They can just make out a pool of water deep inside the room. Tethered to an iron ring set into the wall near the pool is a black horse. They see a number of doors, covered in beaten brass, leading from this chamber.
Two goblins, clutching short spears, glare at them with bloodshot eyes.
“You’re not welcome here,” the nearest one snarls.
“Intruders!” the other one screeches.
