Pumping water out of the mines does not help, the water just keeps coming back! We need to find the source of this water.
Interestingly, our lovely river was not on the maps drawn some 100 years ago, and other clues also seem to indicate the river is somewhat new. Speculating that the river and the mines are fed by the same source, we trek out up the river. We find some caves, inconveniently located just over a running river. Deciding to enter from above, we rappel down sturdy ropes secured to Günther, doing all sorts of improbable stunts killing goblins (and almost ourselves) entering and exploring the caves.
Turns out the gobbos have pierced an ancient dwarven waterway, leeching the water into their own domains for spawning purposes. Not good. Exploring the caves below, it seems that the gobbos are fighting over this territory with the local dwarves, and making an alliance with these stunties should be a priority! The gobbos are thankfully not present in great numbers, but they do display ability for organisation, discipline and weird magic.
Also, some good loot!
