Flypps, Lantern, and Callum arrive in Ironthorn to find that Jasper has been investigating strange occurrences in the local cemetery – graves and tombstones will go missing, only to return the next morning. They set up a stake out in the cemetery, and discover that the grave dirt is animating and heading into one of the nearby mines. Flypps polymorphs Jasper into a raccoon and remains in the cemetery to keep watch for any further activity while the rest of the party investigates the mine.
The party discovers that the earthen creatures are excavating a chamber containing a giant pool of Bile of Esperatch. A fight ensues after Jasper drops a beetle into the pool – it transforms into a much larger beetle-like monster and attacks, drawing the attention of the earthen creatures. Lantern collapses the roof of the chamber to fill the pool, and the party defeats the remaining creatures.
As they climb out of the chamber and into the cemetery, they see a legion of goblins emerging from the surrounding forest.
