    I can confirm there is a small room located beneath the shovel in the report; Say "Dig" when next to it to pop down below. When I arrived, there were miners there, but they were not infected...

    Destard was a very sharp bit of lateral thinking, congratulations to whoever had that brainwave!

    T'was an honour and a privilege to fight alongside the Dutchy of Trinsic.

    My trusty companion Red would not have been able to defeat such a formidable foe as the 'Blackrock Dragon' had it not been for the sheer determination and bravery of the Duchy of Trinsic's troops.

    I commend you all on a valiant effort and a well earned victory!

    I saw this on the EM site

    So i went to check the mine.

    There were some [Guardians]'s and a black box. I killed the [Guardians]'s and the box let off a black cloud, like dread mares when you say trick and it unlocked.

    Inside is a book titled, ???, inside it, it says

    I'm rather rusty on Drow language, not used it in a pen-and-paper RPG for years, but a rough translation of the book would be something like

    Literal translation -

    "By command of the High Priestess

    We need more slaves! Mine of black rock is falling."

    Not completely clear, and I think there's a slight confusion of words - Usst usually means 'mine' in the sense of 'belonging to me', not 'hole in the ground where you dig up stuff'....

    (I'm not too certain about using d' to mean 'of' in a general sense, I think it usually means 'of' in the sense of 'belonging to a family, city, country', but I'd need to do some hunting for the books I used to use for this stuff!)

    I'm inclined to think it means 'we need more slaves because the production rate of blackrock in the mine is falling', but I suppose it could also mean 'the mine is collapsing'!

    If I wanted to get lots of slaves that nobody cared about for a mine in Britannia, the logical choice would be those refugees outside Ter Mur, nothing there yet though.
