The Gnomes and Halflings living in the Gnome Hills are troubled by strange creatures haunting their land. They have asked help of the Green Leaf Elves of the Star Fortress. A young elven fighter has been sent to investigate. Doratia the Curious Elf is exploring the most dangerous places around the hills, helped by Ursus the Irascible Gnome and Glaukus the Silent Halfling. After defeating a pack of giant rodents in the Secret Cavern of the Rat Things, they now face the mystery of the Dreadful Dungeon of the Dwarven Martyrs!
The entrance of the dungeon is a natural cave, containing a large cage full of rams. When our heroes enter the dungeon, the cage opens and they are attacked by the rams (1 Danger Point each). They quickly kill the four animals but Glaukus is slightly wounded in the fight.
After a short corridor, the party enters a wizard’s laboratory. The center of the room is occupied by a magic circle which actually is a trap (3 Danger Points) but all manage to avoid the danger. The wizard casts a spell against Ursus, but the gnome is not affected. Doratia hits the enemy with one of her daggers and Ursus finishes him with his fireball spell.
The last room is the crypt of the Dwarven martyrs. The bones of those legendary dwarves are scattered everywhere. The party is confronted by two large demons (4 Danger Points each). Glaukus is almost killed in the fight, but Doratia and Ursus manage to defeat the two creatures. Doratia finds in the crypt a -1 damage magic armor.
