After spending few days in Oakhurst they arrived to Sunless Citadel again. Heroes traveled deeper into forgotten corridors. In south part they found a stone door with bas-relief in form of rearing dragon. Walls around this door were in better shape than in the northern part. Unfortunately it was closed and even master-thief Ufa wasn't able to open it. They decided to return to it later.
Ufa took the point and heroes backtracked their way to the entrance. From there they decided to explore western part. They already noticed that ruins were inhabited by goblins. The bodies of goblins they found were clearly a result of recent battle. As it turned out there was tribe of kobolds as well.
They carefully sneaked into the western corridor. Behind the door, in the end of it, they found large and irregularly shaped chamber. Walls were decorated with crudely inscribed symbols and glyphs, scribed in a bright green dye. Large bonfire provided light inside this room. Several dead kobolds were ceremonially burned in it. Near south wall large cage stood empty with gaping hole.
Ufa noticed small kobold in ceremonial clothes sleeping near cage. His name was Meepo and he was the Keeper of the Dragon, only there was no dragon anymore. After short council heroes decided to take creature alive and to question him. That was an easy task.
Meepo was ready to talk, but he didn't know a lot really. He suggested to lead them to the matriarch of his tribe – Yusdrayl. Peaceful meeting with a creature who can know a lot about the situation in a dungeon and its inhabitants was too good to pass. They traveled further to the west with Meepo to the Dragon Throne.
The Dragon Throne was a short throne composed of bits of fallen masonry built upon the old altar. The portion of an altar with a bas-relief of rearing dragon served as throne's back. A metallic key
is held firmly in the rearing dragon’s open mouth. Yusdrayl sat on the throne and watched authoritatively over the kobold honor guard and heroes in front of her.
Ysdrayl proposed a deal: knowledge and treasure in the place of dragon that was stolen by goblins. Heroes noticed key and a few other useful items near the throne. They decided it was a good deal and they had to investigate goblin part of ruins anyway. After the deal was sealed they moved to the north carefully, to the goblin territory.
