Our adventure opened as Lillith “Lilly” Hightower returned home to the mining town of New Arcadia and joined up with a unique outfit called the “Dragon claws.” As she did, Lilly was joined by two others, a D-Bee Manta ray Humanoid named Azure Fin, and a Slavic Adventurer named Dragomir Breban. They were all briefed by Arturexx’s Major domo, a former juicer named Garth Bladenshiff, and given leave to explore the town before being called to action. Lilly reacquainted herself one of the secretaries working in administration.. a woman named Margaret Gallin. Then the group made their way to the Rusty Minecart saloon.
Once inside the saloon, the group met the proprietor, a female Dwarf Beer Mistress named Polenwilda “Polly” Gravelfury. After she greeted Lilly warmly, Lilly recognized her former boyfriend, Bradly Ludlow. Bradly had apparently fallen in with a harder crowd since she left, and had developed some Anti-DB sentiments along with an affection for the Coalition. After getting up and referring to the new “freaks” in the room and calling Azure fin.. “Sushi face,” Brad got up to finish his drink and was probably going to start trouble. Dragomir did not wait to find out however, as he rushed forward, and as Brad was downing the shot.. he punched him in the face and shattered the glass. Dragomir then followed up with a kidney shot that sent Brad to the ground like a sack of potatoes. As he was being punched. Azure fin used his electrical control to cause every single hair in Brad’s head to simultaneously fall out through electrolysis. Brad’s friends hauled him away as the group settled down and briefly went back to their drinks. In exchange for dealing with the problem of Brad, Polly gave Dragomir some of her home brew.. and it actually brought tears to the slav’s eyes while he smiled broadly and sniffed his onion.
After things had settled down a bit, the group received a message from Dragonclaw command. When they went to the briefing room they were met by an old Arcanist named “Aramonar,” who explained that the extraction of Silver is causing problems by animating some of the surrounding rock formations. Several miners were injured, and he would now need to go down to the mines and lay several “stabilizing runes” while the Dragon Claws protected him. They were given a few minutes to arm and equip, which Lilly used to borrow a heavier Laser Rifle from the dwarven Quartermaster named Ballisar Torc-Hammer. Ballisar was happy to loan her the weapon, and commented that Polly would “have his hide” if he sent Lilly down there without something a bit heavier.
Once they were properly armed and equipped, the Dragonclaw Team went down into the lower mines to escort Aramonar to the sites where he would place the stabilization runes. To no one’s surprise, the group was immediately attack by a large group of Earth elementals and rock golems. Azure fin used his electrical powers to great effect, disrupting several golems in single blazing burst of sparks and energy. Meanwhile Lilly and Dragomir Tore at the others using a combination of Laser weapons and Vibro swords. In only a few minutes, the elementals had been reduced to rubble and a number of strangely glowing purple crystals that Aramonar recommended they keep for study and possible sale.
After Aramonar placed the glowing runes in the rock, the entire area stabilized, and there were no further attacks. Then the Group returned to the surface, talking briefly with one of the Mining foreman on their way back.
