Slay 5 Tunnel Rat Geomancers.


I've found out what those rats are up to. There's so many of them outside because they've got troggs digging for them in the mine!

The tunnel rat geomancers figured out some kind of parlor trick to control the troggs, as creatures of the earth or somesuch.

Fascinating, but not something we want to let them practice. Take out those geomancers right away.

I'm flattered you want to stay here and sweet-talk me, but we've got business.


I'm sure that only worked because the troggs aren't bright to begin with. But then again, us dwarves were once creatures of the earth as well.

Being bossed around by a kobold doesn't sound quite dignified, and I'm glad we didn't get to find out if they could pull that off.


Pick up A [5-30] Who's In Charge Here? and A [5-30] Filthy Paws before heading out.

Back to the mine, but this time, heading into the mine itself! Go killing geomancers, looting gear and getting to Foreman Sharpsneer, found at [34.7, 26.8] all the way at the southern end of the mine.

Geomancers are yelling at their slaves as players progress through the mine:

  • Tunnel Rat Geomancer says: Rock-mans dig or kobold hit more!
  • Tunnel Rat Geomancer says: Rock-mans lazy! Why rock-mans so lazy?!
  • Tunnel Rat Geomancer says: Nasty rock-mans! Do as we say!
  • Tunnel Rat Geomancer says: Dig ore! Rock-mans dig ore now!
  • Tunnel Rat Geomancer says: Dig faster! Faster! No stop!
  • Tunnel Rat Geomancer says: Dig! Rock-mans! For everlasting peace!
