The daily routine was disrupted by a small portion of obsidian jutting out of the earth and causing a small quake. Some looters, who were based in the abandoned part of the mines, took advantage of the pandemonium, but were aptly stopped by The Blue Serpent, Thoros Thunderspire, and Faya. Kyr pulled some people to safety and helped to rebuild.
The bandits were turned into the authorities and the heroes were awarded a small stipend of 10 gold each.
The party learned that this obsidian spire had been growing, and the dwarfs mining it had hoped to keep it from damaging the surface by mining it faster than it grew. Unfortunately, their calculations were off and this obsidian spire has now broken the surface in the middle of town.
