After the earthquake the group head to the excavated chamber, they find that the rock slide covered door has opened. D and C can see elven inscription on the walls of the entrance hall inside the door. Hearing rattling bones coming from the darkness, PT lights a sunrod and sees the same inscription but written in Giant… “Our King gave himself for his people…” illuminated by the sunrod the group can see animal headed pillars and 6 skeletons standing before a dais upon which an armored body lays on the back of a Dragon skeleton, a large sword pierces through the armored body’s chest and into the Dragon remains.

The heroes advance carefully, jumping over trap pressure plates and engage the skeletons, a Deathlock Wight emerges from a vault and joins the fray. Bolstered by C the group easily defeat the tomb guardians.
