The long-delayed expedition in search of the second fabled cavern has finally recommenced. All the old exploratory tunnels were closed, while the scaffolding used for the walls securing the first cavern were removed. An outpost with food, booze, and barracks was constructed 49 levels below the surface, along with a cave-in corridor in preparation for the dangers below. Dishmab Vesselbrain, the 2nd best warrior of the fortress has now been stationed in the Deep Outpost with her squad of legendaries, including Goden II Claspletter, slayer of Lerdi the Forgotten Beast.
