The group dreamed a lot of things that night (underground so night is relative) but nothing happened during the rest period. Parker removed the three diamonds from the Golem and took the statuettes in the previous rooms.
Meanwhile Gurt and Tordek wandered away from the group think that gold was further in down the stairs into a room covered in crumbling plaster with some lizardfolk images which they ignored and took the door which led to a very long corridor. Following the corridor led to a room with three urns each one filled with ash, they then spent the next ten minutes checking the room for anything secret.
The rest of the group had collected the statues and had entered the lizardfolk images room and saw it as some sort of religious reference to their gods of the moon and a winged lizardfolk wearing a crown. ‘The Immortal King’ Erithian said to the group an ancient demi-god far older than Thanatos. Parker found a secret door opposite the door the dwarves had taken and revealed and massive hall behind it. Thinking that a fight might happen the group went off in search of the dwarves and heard the smashing sound of pottery.
Gurt and Tordek had smashed an Urn, at once Tordek felt Stronger while Gurt felt more ugly (than normal) and the room took this in at a glance when they walked in.
Searching the room revealed a secret door, which the dwarves were amazed they did not find. Opening it they could see a long corridor with a large opening that led to another corridor.
Dwarves out in front they advanced down to the large opening where they saw massive piles of dust which advanced on them and attacked them!
Earnest concluded these were flesh golems that had aged for thousands of years but the magic kept them whole.
Tordek yelled a battle cry and charge into one of them but due to the dust, he could not see what was solid to hit.
The two golems attacked Tordek and Gurt, but other than giving some extra dandruff, they missed the dwarves.
Gurt swung in a wild arc and cut out a bit of it.
Alidear brought up his bow but only succeeded in shooting ceiling.
Osborne cast bless.
Earnest conjured up a fireball and hurled it behind the Golems catching Tordek in the blast, Tordek was burnt a bit but the golems took no damage but due to the magic holding them together, they moved more sluggish.
Parker not sure what to do waited for everyone else to pile in.
Hamish moved behind and cast ‘Bull’s Strength’ on Gurt.
Erithian charged in and took a little chunk out of the Golem.
Tordek hit his target again taking another small chunk from the Golem.
The Golems continued attacking the Dwarves hitting Gurt in the face, making him sneeze.
Gurt swung again and took a big chunk this time.
Alidear aimed this time but missed again.
Osborne moved behind Tordek and cast ‘Bull’s Strength’ upon him.

Tordek, with an over hand swing hit what he thought was the head and the Golem exploded into dust.
The remaining Golem swung at Gurt but over extended itself and the magic exploded within it.
(End of Combat)
Advancing along the corridor, they saw a green glow further down the corridor in a large room. Both Alidear and Erithian were on their guard and warned everyone there was a great evil up ahead.
Moving into the room they saw on top of a pedestal a glowing green crystal containing a withered lizardfolk with bat-like wings on its back, wearing a crown. There were runes on the base, which read in Draconic, ‘Awaken the past, with the blood of my people and you shall be justly rewarded’. This was the Immortal King and judging by the amount of evil coming from it, the group were not prepared to take it on anytime soon.
The group considered what to do next….
