    I found some [Guardians] at the last mine entrance last night with a locked box. Killed them all and found a book in the box with the title '???' and written by Unknown. Inside it says

    L' Szith inbal tlus defeated udos z'klean lac doeb alur mercenaries. L'counter-attack starts ulnin!



    I think it translates to

    The ten have been defeated we must seek out better mercenaries.
    The counter-attack starts soon!

    Also, wasn't there rubble at one of the entrances after it being blown up? I can't see any now, and one of the blockades inside the mine has been blown up, so we can get through.

    New fiction on the EM site

    Curtain Call?
    So these top mercenaries known enigmatically as “The Ten” had failed their task, and failed miserably. Overwhelmed by the forces of the Army of Britannia they hadn’t lasted long or got anywhere near to Father Grant who seemed to be living now peacefully in Trinsic. The Duchy guard stood over them and a number of watchmen from the city aided in this vigil. The Ancient Silver Serpent Eggs were also being watched for any signs of hatching and Nathan had commanded that for now this was top of the list of tasks for his network of spies. Once Father Grant had recovered a bit of his memory it would be time to question him about the recipe a bit more. But not just yet…

    Mizara Khan smiled to herself as she played with the small black pearl in her hand and ran it between her fingers. She had learnt some new spells to call forth a breed of Daemon from … well from whence she wasn’t sure. But that didn’t really matter. One thing that did matter was that these Daemons were powerful and able to avoid the Town Guards. This was going to be fun. The attack on Skara Brae had been an experiment as well as a diversion whilst she got her hands on that damned crystal that Dawn was after. Sadly she had misjudged and mistimed her attack arriving too late in Britain and she couldn’t locate it anywhere. And now it was sat just out of her reach. It may be that these Dark Elves she had heard so much about were worth dealing with and in fact it might suit her purpose to aid them in their clearly losing battle with the humans…

    The Dark Elves sat and spoke in whispers about their defeats so far, the loss of their special dragon kin and what to do next. In hushed tones their feminine voices whispered of death and corruption and power. But for now it was all talk whilst they planned and waited. One small group was sent out to find if the last entrance had yet been breached whilst the main bulk of the assassins readied themselves to deliver weapons, armour and supplies to the Dark Elves who were now mostly trapped within their own mines…
