The party fought their way through thick snow and blizzard for several days to find the assumed dwarven mine. To their surprise the trail was ridden with dead frozen dwarves and yeti’s had taken up home within their path. Upon reaching their goal they found a massive canyon carved to represent a dragons mouth. with warnings carved into the walls. “A powerful wizard is always prepared to fight a dragons fire with his own.” Deep within the cave a large cavern hosted a obsidian alter which after some trickery acted as a lift, lowering into the darkness below. Their destination was marred with a flooded walkway, dwarven blood and the sound of turning gears and waterfalls down a long passage.
