The dwarves have grown placid and content in their mountain fastness. They are shaken from their peaceful day-to-day when more and more complaints surface of things lost. They are not valuable things – not in a monetary sense, but their owners hold them dear. And dwarves don't give up easily what they consider theirs. They want back what is theirs, even if it means chasing the thief there and back again!
Annolori and Khôrin Strongart have found hints that the thief may have spirited away their treasured possessions to Khazad-dûm, the forbidden and haunted kingdom of long ago. It may not seem worth the trouble, but then again – what dwarf worth their salt will refuse an opportunity to enter Khazad-dûm and see their ancestral home? It is not for battle that the expedition will go there but to reclaim what is theirs. Sneak in and sneak out – and woe the hapless orc that bars their way.
Have you also lost something dear that you wish to retrieve? Or do you want to join the expedition for more avaricious reasons? After all – rumour goes that there is still much wealth to be found in the lost kingdom.
