Our party rested up after their encounter with the Formian drones. Further questioning of Armas revealed that the Formians had been friendly towards the miners in the past but they had recently become very violent and had killed some people outside of the camp. The others had decided that it was too dangerous and left, abandoning Armas. The party made fun of him and gave him a wedgie. They searched around the camp brielfy then descended down a large shaft into the mines to investigate further.
Once they reached the bottom of the mineshaft they found four tunnels branching off in different directions, one with mine tracks leading down it and a cart nearby. The rocks seemed to glow with a dim light. Brad Chadsmith, Magic Mike-tron, and Cash Cow climbed into the mine cart and took off down the track. They quickly gained speed and rocketing around a corner found themselves facing a gap in the tracks. Brad pulled the jump lever on the cart in time and the mine cart leapt over the hole and made it to the other side. However it knocked into a timber in the process and broke the support causing a cave-in behind them. They continued down the track and quickly approached the end of the line. Magic Mike-tron summoned the Big Blobber in front of them and the mine cart crashed into him, absorbing the impact and stopping them safely but killing Big Blobber. Finding themselves unharmed and in a magical place Brad convinced Magic Mike-tron to perform the Ritual of Enlarging to bring him back to normal size. They setup the ritual and began, slowly increasing the size of Brad's body.
After waiting around for a couple hours and not hearing from their companions Char, Ray Jennings, and JFK investigated and found the cave-in. They went down another tunnel to try to get to the others but ran into some bloodthirsty cave rats. One rat jumped on Chars arm and she used her flaming sword to swat it off and kill it. Four other rats jumped on JFK and Ray went wild swinging his sword at them to protect his companion. After doing some damage though the sword slipped from his grasp and went sliding down the tunnel. A couple more rats approached Char and she wrapped herself in fire to protect herself. The fire burned so hot it ignited everything nearby and the rats on JFK fell off in agony. Char was able to bend the fire to her will to extinguish her companions and make a path deeper into the tunnel. They continued on while the remaining rats burned alive behind them.
Magic Mike-tron completed the ritual and Brad was restored to full size, more or less. They took a good look around at their surroundings and discovered some Sqand deposits running through the rock of The Pearl. This must have been what the miners were after. Taking up some discarded picks Brad and Mike chipped away at the exposed Sqand and was able to gather several good sized chunks of raw ore. Maybe someone in Caldea can help smelt it. They went back up the tunnel they came from and found the cave-in. Brad pulled a magical bomb out of his bag and Magic Mike-tron set it off, it erupted in a double explosion blowing a huge hole in the dirt blocking their way. However the explosion set off an earthquake throughout the Pearl and the mine began to collapse.
Char, Ray, and JFK were walking down their tunnel when they felt the double explosion and subsequent earthquake. They hurried along hoping to find something and came to the end where they found a door set in the wall. They opened it and found a small office with lots of papers and information on the walls about how the mine was doing. On a table in the middle of the room Char took a small silver rod that was warm to the touch before a large boulder was dislodged from the ceiling and cracked the table in half. Sensing it was time to go and not seeing any other option they rushed back up their tunnel to the entrance. They got back to the rats and the fire was still raging, Char was able to bend the fire to her will. She gathered it all up into a fireball and threw it down the tunnel to the entrance.
Magic Mike-tron summoned the mythical Peter Griffin and he along with Brad and Cash Cow hopped on Peter Griffin's back while he flew them to safety. They arrived back at the entrance and were wondering where their companions were when Char's fireball flew out of a nearby tunnel. Peter Griffin launched himself up the mineshaft to escape but Brad was unable to hold on and fell to the ground as the fire from Char washed over him burning him. The party was able to reunite back at the entrance and climbed up to the surface as the earthquake brought the mine down around them. After the shaking stopped they nursed their wounds and noticed that the Formian hive in the distance seemed to be damaged as well. Some of their disguises were ruined but the Formians will be busy and they may be able to slip in unnoticed in the chaos. They contemplated their next moves while Peter Griffin flew around them yelling catchphrases.
