Following the testimony of a little boy that was attacked by undead, our heroes investigate an underground river, only to be led to a dam that was build there by prospecting Duergar. After a few skirmishes, the adventurers finally confront their leader in one of the dark dwarves' forge, located at the edges of the underdark...

This encounter was constructed to host the final battle from the short adventure sacred shrine (http://www.rpgarchive.com/index.php?page=adv1&advid=817) with a few modifications (it was an ambush, the chief Duergar having made himself invisible, also, his Tiefling ally used his fire resistance to hide in the fire from the forge, daring the PCs to approach, and several undead were buried in the coal, to jump out on the unsuspecting players...).

It was constructed using GIMP and many objects pilfered from the dundjinni forums (http://www.dundjinni.com/forums/forum_topics.asp?FID=8). You can check the progression of the work starting here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/virtual-tabletop-battlemap-mapping/20704-wip-duergars-forge.html).
This was a very interesting project, as I got to play a lot with shadows and lighting.
Finally, I want to mention how very grateful I am for all the help, advices and support from jtougas (http://www.cartographersguild.com/members/jtougas.html) and Jacktannery (http://www.cartographersguild.com/members/jacktannery.html). Thanks a bunch guys!
