Adventure Background The Forge is an artifact that the dwarves have kept in trust for eons. It is supposedly the tool God used to create the Zhud. The location of the Forge has been a secret even from the various leaders of the Zhud tribes ever since the stronghold was built. Only one Zhud in existence knows of the Forge’s whereabouts and that person chooses devout and worthy Zhud's to act as guardians at the secret citadel. But even they don't know what they're guarding. So when it was stolen, the keeper informed the various secular and religious leaders of the Zhud tribes who then decided they needed to retrieve it. However by this stage, reports of the Forge and its use had begun to filter throughout the region. The religious leaders became very concerned after reading the holy texts and learned that because the person using the Forge could only wield the artifact with Gods approval. Therefore, whoever was wielding it was on a direct mission from God himself.
The dwarven leaders knew that Forge needed to be returned to the secret citadel. They made a decision that put them between a rock and a hard place, what they needed was someone ignorant, someone who could potentially get to and stop the thieves, but who wouldn't figure out that they were actually acting against God wishes. They needed scapegoats. Enter the PC's.

He may suggest that he's attempting to find a long, lost religious artifact. They travel by ship from Altalissia to the small port of Copper Bay. There they can replenish food and water. The will be wandering monsters in the wilderness to contend with and eventually the caravan comes upon the ruins. The Zhud cleric produces a key that unlocks a door in one of the buildings that has not been plundered by grave robbers and thieves. The PC's adventure down three levels of traps and monsters too finally to a lesser demon called the Fire Tyrant who is trying to use trying to destroy The Forge in a sinister ceremony.
Adventure Hooks •
Guarding the caravan: The party has been contacted by a Zhud cleric that is rather eccentric and will offer 500gp (at first) then 1000gp (final offer) to guard his caravan through the Gebroan wilderness. He won't tell the PC's about the ruins or the Forge of Souls.
