The following summary of events have been compiled from the journals and writings of Gippetto Pinhearl Barrow Rocktoe III in order to replace the lost adventure logs of that most famous of groups.
Unsure of the stones significance, but sure that the Shattered Hand wanted it, the group left the stone in the royal vault for safekeeping. For a short time, the adventurers returned to their normal lives.
In NestleNook, Gippetto discovered that the Dwarves had closed off their kingdom to all outsiders. Naturally he gathered his friends to investigate. Bonesnappa’s knowledge of the mountains proved useful in leading the band to a cliff face that would allow access to Glor’val.
The city-kingdom (Dwarves are weird) was revealed to be scarred by battle and the group was met by devils. Beings of this type had not been seen since The Seal had been placed. While battling their way toward the king’s hall, where Gippetto suspected any survivors would be holed up, Bonesnappa was separated from the group. While separated he was forced to go one on one with what we now know as Bearded Devils. Though he was beat to within an inch of his life, Bonesnappa was victorious. During this time Gippetto had suffered a serious wound during an ambush.
The party was reunited finally made their way to the dwarven king, Bron Silverbeard. There they found the remnants of the warrior caste protecting the civilian refugees and the royal family. The party was informed that the devils had poured fourth from the lower levels so, of course, they set off to deal with the threat right away. Except for Gippetto who, due to his injury, was forced to stay behind.
In the lowest level, Jonathan chanced upon a secret room where he found a bow, string, and quiver. When the three pieces were used together, the arrows would be charged with electrical energy and would return to the quiver a few moments after impact. Shortly after, they came to a room where two devils were discussing invasion plans. One had the form of a woman and was disturbingly beautiful while the other was huge with the wings of a bat. The two devils quickly departed down along the tunnels that connected Glor’val to Nezzalban via underground river.
The band gave chase and confronted the two villains in Nezzalban. The huge one “tore” a hole in reality and retreated to the abyss while the female stayed behind to deal with the adventures. She proved no match for Bonesnappa’s newly invented Devil’s Snare maneuver (He invented it during his solo devil fight). She was turned over to the prince for questioning, but there was no time for celebration.
Information had turned up as to the whereabouts of the Shattered Hand’s leader.
