*A little later*
Xalen: Where are we? I tried to dampen the blast as much as I've could, still...
Zuleika: It appears that the ground have sundered under us, and we fell into a subterranean cavern of sorts.
Bjarn: Ow... how are the others?
Zuleika: I'm fine, only a couple of bruises. Sadly, both Liana and Gil are still unconscious, I don't know how bad their situation are. Oh, and by the way, we're sharing this cave with those folks.
Blaze: My word, ye guys sure came with a bang! I thought we're done for!
Xalen: Who are you?
Blaze: I'm Blaze Ironbreaker, and these are my dwarves. We're in just as bad situation as you are, lad.
Xalen: Why? Are you lost?
Blaze: No, we're cornered! By our fellow dwarves!
Blaze: I was ordered a couple of days ago by the Thane to investigate a lost mining expedition, as they we hadn't heard anything of them in weeks! Turns out, they've dug up some weird crystal thing that drove all of them mad! When we arrived, they thought we're enemies, and attacked us. We did our best, but they were far too many, and we had to hide ever since. They know these damned caves far better than I do! Thing is, as long as we don't take down their leader, Modru, we won't see the surface world.
Modru the mad: I know yer there, Ironbreaker! Git out with yer men and die like a real dwarf should! Or face the wrath of Modru!
Blaze: Curses, they've found us!
Xalen: That crystal...
Modru the mad: Alright, then FACE THE MIGHT OF MODRU! DIE BY THE CRYSTAL'S WRATH!
Unlucky irongut dwarf: AIIIEE!
Modru the mad: This is not what I've wanted!
Blaze: Great, that brainless dwarf just summoned an ancient rock wyrm!
Blaze: We have no choice but to fight, otherwise these idiots will destroy us all! What do you say lad, will ye help?
Xalen: You have my blade, Blaze Ironbreaker. (And hopefully I'll have that crystal by the end of this) Will you join, pirate?
Cpt. Illustrious: Luckily, I always carry a spare set of arms with me.
Bjarn: Take care of them, Zuleika. We'll fight ourselves to the surface.
Zuleika: Go get 'em, norseman!
