Taking the center tunnel, the party enters Shadowmire’s lair.  Deep in the pool at the heart of the chamber, a huge black shape lurks.  Kriv and Xaelin hail the dragon, who at first only raises her eyes out of the water, but soon has her head out too, discussing terms with the adventurers spokesmen.  All is going swimmingly when Kriv threatens the great dragons children and she flies into a rage, leaping skyward and raining acid down on Kriv and the area around him.  Landing to get at him, she is blind with rage and panic, lashing out at the intruders with no regard for herself.  She has to protect her babies.

The battle that ensues is long and difficult, as she is on the verge of being overwhelmed she came to her senses enough to leap skyward and plunge, headlong, into the pool for some relief from her adversaries.

Having collected herself, she re-emerged and sprayed acid everywhere, flying about until Alphazar attacks her and draws her back down to the surface, slamming into her.  Orin shot up out of the acidic water to attack from below.  As the adventurers attacked with a final effort,  Xaelin brought down lightning and finished the mighty beast.

Now it remained to retrieve the treasure from the bottom of the acid pool in which it is secured.

After a lengthy and creative debate, Berrian performed a ritual to close off the opening that allowed water into the cave, this lowered the pool by 20 feet as it drained down to the level of a tunnel that led downhill away from the pool.  Unfortunately, the pool is 60 feet deep.

Much discussion ensued.  Eventually, the party decided to go and find the children that Shadowmire referred to.  As expected the children were down the third passage off the main entry chamber.  However, there were to Lizardfolk Crushers, great hulking brutes, guarding them.  Initially taking aggressive stance, the Crushers were called off and negotiated with by the Dragonborn in the party.  For a share of the treasure, they would continue their role as caretakers of the babies.  Who, in turn, were highly trainable. With some food bribery, the babies were soon working to pull up all the treasure.
