Riva: Is this Moria (Level 1)?

[Part of the Darklands of Arkania Story.]

A large orc contingent has taken up residence in the mine, and one that meets the party almost immediately. Fortunately after the pretty tough entry encounter the rest of the place it pretty manageable to explore as the orcs must have sent most of their number to that initial battle. Interesting to note that unlike the previous two games, enemies don't seem to flee any more - which is great for loot and xp.

As for the previous dwarven inhabitants? Well...

They died.

One of the rooms happens to be a nursery, and while Dalian tries to play with a wooden horse, Darth searches each cot thoroughly to uncover all the secrets of the mine holds. Neither action turns out to be very wise.

Dalian killed the horse.

-5 Charisma. Ouch.
