In 1078 AE, earthquakes tore open the ground, revealing ancient crypts beneath. Local Stone Summit dwarves sensed great magic within and ordered their dredge slaves to excavate the area in order to reach it. The source of the magic turned out to be the trapped undead lich Zoldark the Unholy who promised the dwarves unimaginable power if he was freed from his tomb. However, unbeknownst to the miners, he gradually began possessing their minds to turn them into his enslaved minions.

Thanks to the information delivered by worried dredge slaves who were struggling against the lich's spreading influence, a party of heroes realized the threat and descended into the Vloxen Excavations where they defeated Zoldark in the heart of his tomb.

Ash Legion Shadow: So, you read the new Snargle Goldclaw novel yet?
Iron Legion Sentinel: Why would I read that trash?
Ash Legion Shadow: It's a good distraction. Plus that scene in the hot springs is pretty...steamy...
Iron Legion Sentinel: The what now?
North of the Vloxen Mine Vista near the Gate
Ash Legion Shadow: I've been ready to fight since I was a cub. Couldn't wait to take out enemies on the battlefield.
Seraph Soldier: Is it what you thought it'd be?
Ash Legion Shadow: The battle part, yeah. The enemies part, no.
Seraph Soldier: No?
Ash Legion Shadow: I...never pictured them being Ash, I guess. Everyone else, sure. But not Ash.
