In an effort to catch up the log, here is a summary:
-The party returned to the dwarven city. Ogres were guarding the gates, but the party overcame them.
-The party killed some bulettes that were chained up, though these creatures snapped their chains pretty easily. An ettin was drawn to the sound of battle, though the party killed him too. They then looted the ettin’s lair.
-The party came across the forge that Arboro Vesto noticed previously. They managed to hire the dao present to fix Maluth Clanguard Caragavi‘s sword. Once that was done, the dao’s two duergar assistants bugged out for parts unknown and the dao packed up shop and presumably returned to the Elemental Plane of Earth.
