The party followed the path of the ochre-robed priests to a rich, but foreboding forest where they met and absolutely destroyed the green dragon who had been terrorizing the area for decades.
Once the dragon was defeated, passage to the temple was easy. The entrance sat high on the cliff, protected by obscurity and guarded by a (dead) dragon. The party entered stealthily, and took the forward guard unawares. But the further they ventured in, the thicker the fighting got.
Signs of elemental evil cult activity were everywhere, and stronghold occupation was recent. Any signature of the dwarves that once built this complex, has been removed long ago.
Then, deep in the bowels of the old caverns, the party found what the feared would be here; another obelisk.
Amid the ruins of the old cult, the party found a sword of ancient dwarven construction, and bound to elemental earth. Further study would reveal it as a key of some sort.
Before they left, the party decided to clear the abandoned mines; part of the original dwarven stronghold. They found another dragon, and working together they were able to defeat it.
Among this dragon’s treasure were the remains of a dwarf bearing heraldry of the line of Flametounge, an ancient and mysterious line of dwarves. Their wealth and influence is undeniable, but their history is all but erased. The dwarf carried a broken axe with similar markings as the earth sword. Though useless as a weapon, the axe could still be used as a some kind of key. What it would open remained a mystery.
