The Mines are home to a whispered-of artifact known as “The Forever Stone”. The party has traveled from Baldur’s Gate to the Mines seeking the Stone. In an outhouse outside the entrance to the Mines, the party encountered a Purple Worm.
Once the worm was vanquished, the party discovered a magical trap on the entrance which was disarmed by speaking the Dwarvish word “Pax,” meaning “Great”. Past the entrance, the party encountered a group of cockatrices, and saved a goblin adventurer named Hug Hug.
The party chose to rest before venturing further into the Mines, though their dreams were troubled and they woke up still exhausted. Party did not regenerate hit dice but received other benefits of long rest
