so after tearing down the shoddily constructed wall over a tunnel entrance we walked for a while, then rested. then walked some more. then we came across a really fascinating portal which one of the children said guarded the Forge of Something or Other. i really think Squeaker and i need to figure out how to make on of these. so it was pretty easy to bypass the lock and get the door open. where we subsequently got attacked by a large iron construct and some fire elementals. we quickly felled them do to their inferiority and claimed the forge as our own. and the Hammer of the Forge which the iron golem was wielding. the fleshlings all then went unconscious for a bit while i got time to study the forge. very fascinating.
