Mission 2 - Kingsmen
“So they’re not the Overland King’s representatives?”
A thick trickle of lava slides through a something like a fireplace, heating this meeting room and creating an amazing lighting ambiance.
Schim shakes his head. “No, counsellor, and they wish to begin trading with us, against the King’s wishes.”
The robed counsellor turns towards the hot liquid rock. “This is less than ideal. The king refuses to parlay with us, and his subjects are ransacking our caves. If Brigvark falls, what will become of our people? Allies we need, but bringing the Kings’s axe down with them…” he sighs
“We must begin somewhere, Counsellor Zimbock,” reflects Schim. “Randaer, the elven one, is not to be trusted, and these people betrayed his trust and got me back here. We should at least trust them a little more.”
“You are right. Take care of them, and give them an opportunity to prove themselves trustworthy.”
Those who returned to The Cherry Gris with mushrooms meet with Randaer, the elven man who gave you your papers.
“Impressive! My gratitude to you all. There are many who have not returned and yet I did not think there would be so many. Are the caverns that treacherous? Or maybe it is Schim… No matter, I have many eyes on the caverns. If they show up, they shall be brought to accounts.”

2. Shiny Metal Wall
Sitting down for a bowl of grub gumbo with Schim, he mumbles something about a cold metallic wall in one of the caverns outside Brigvark. The pangoleans have not the ability to drill through it, and have concealed it well from the overlanders. Schim surmises that someone from the over might be able to get through.

[[ Sorry for the delay. Baby growing pains. Travel to a place with no cell coverage and the worst wifi on the planet. Trying to buy a house. Job interviews. Everything is conspiring against me. Your patience is commendable!
You all know the state of your characters. Rest a cliche for this round to restore it to its original state/value. ]]
