In this adventure, the PC group continues working in the ruins of the AEsir Empire as agents of the druidic Northern Circle. They are sent out to look for a lost salt mine that was used by the AEsir but that now also is being sought by orcs in the service of a powerful draug (undead) count and by thousands of rival orcs from the distant north that are led by a mysterious female orc. In addition, strange salt golems appear to be defending the area where the mine was believed to be. Both the undead count and the rival orcs want very much to find the abandoned and lost mine. The druids of the Northern Circle would like to know what's behind all of this.
The PCs find the mine, but they also find that there are two more heretofore unknown and evil dungeons beneath it that are much more important and threatening than the mine itself. Finally, they discover that there also is a secret, fortified, subterranean dwarven gemstone mine nearby.
Fractal Mapper 8 is necessary to modify the 51 maps in their native format.
