The 6 Azer's we freed ran down the stairs into the Forge room. I followed them quickly. Downstairs they ran towards a large demonlike creature with a huge sword. I stopped downstairs in a defensive position to see what would happen while Niamh put an arrow in the snakelike slave. The Azer's responded to that by telling us to not attack their friends. In the room there were 3 more Azer's, 3 guards with shield and sword, and 2 guards like the ones we saw before, with the burning spear and the armor with the burning hole in their chest.
I was attacked by one of the guards with the sword and shield, while the 2 guards with the spears also came towards us. The Azer and other slaves were all attacking the big guy. We killed the first guard pretty quickly, but the other 2 were another deal. I tried to stay alive and avoid hits, but every now and then a hit came through, while the rest tried to shoot and hit them. Even them being pushed into the lava by Varaf didn't had much effect.
Then I heard a loud roar and in the distance I saw a Huge Red Dragon! Where did that came from! I took a defensive stance protecting the rest of our party from the dragon. When it came close it ran through one of the other enemies. Since that was impossible it was clear it was an illusion, and it disappeared. Meanwhile the 2 guards were almost dead, and so was I. Then Niamh shot an arrow and killed the first one. When it died the armor it was wearing exploded! I could quickly hide behind my shield and prevented it from hurting me. But 1 second later Niamh also put an arrow in the other one, and the last thing I remembered was that one also exploding. Then it went black.
I wasn't sure how long I was down, but suddenly I felt life flowing back into me. It appeared Niamh healed me. When I looked around I saw there was a Fire Elemental. The big guy and Azers were gone. I took a potion of Heroism and took a defensive position! The Fire Elemental came towards us, but instead of attacking me he just moved over me. I felt like I was boiling inside of this armor. I quickly moved out and put out the flames on me. The Fire Elemental was distracted by the people upstairs and it went there. I screamed at it and gave it a big smash with my Hammer to protect my friends! That got his attention since he attacked me. After that it went dark again.
Again I felt life flowing back into me, and again it was Niamh's touch that got me back up. The forge area was quiet again, all were dead or gone. Arisys checked where the big guy was, since it seemed that Lirmey's whispers caused him to run away. But he was nowhere to be seen, except a lot of Azer corpses. We needed rest for sure, so I proposed to take a short rest in the secret room. Niamh tried to hide our tracks there. During the rest I also examined the armor I was wearing. It was a magical Plate armor of Force Resistance. Not sure when I would take force damage, but at least it was Plate! Varaf's Hammer and chisel were magical, but had no special properties except that they were a very good hammer and chisel.
