Our heroes return to Oleg’s after defeating the Stag Lord only to discover that some of the settlers have recently come under attack from a group of dwarves. Seeking out the dwarves leads to the discovery that a scam is underway. One of the dwarves has lead his fellows into the greenbelt under the guise of the inheritor to the mines and he has stolen their life savings. Once the truth comes out the dwarves are promised ownership of the mines in exchange for services and support. However before they can enter the mine supplies must be ordered and the mine must be secured. Returning to the mine leads to the discovery that it has been overrun by winter ants which our heroes, with some difficulty, eradicate. Though how they came to the greenbelt is still a mystery.
