The adventurers faced a beastman champion bearing a whip and a greatsword but they made quick work of the foe.
Destruction and company then found a secret area in the dungeon. Inside this complex, La La scouted ahead and sees a dark clad, gray-skinned dwarf writing in a journal.
When the company returned to the room in force, this being had disappeared. They traveled further into the complex and discovered an ogre operating some sort of lift. When they moved to attack, the dark clad dwarf appeared as if by magic. The battle had barely begun when Brother Jon ensnared the minds of these two mighty foes, rendering them his zombie-like slaves.
The company avoided the elevator and returned to the mining caverns with their new minions. They attacked the beastmen overseers and a mighty conflict ensued, during which both Destruction and Kolash were brought low and then revived by the healing power of Brother Jon. Finally, as the tide had clearly turned, two beastmen fled deeper into the caverns.
Destruction freed the last of the slaves and sent them to the surface camp.
