You slide/ride down into the valley with no problem and approach the dark opening. It appears to have been blown out from the inside and there is cleared rubble on both sides of the hole. Everything is quiet in the valley but there are conversation noises coming from inside, as well as a fairly strong draft. You dismount from Kheldon and peering into the opening, you realize that it is not a tunnel into the face of the cliff, but rather an opening into a large room built inside of the mountain. You spot a group of people in the room and as you are looking at them, the large Stone Giant standing next to them suddenly disappears. It appears to be around a 20' drop to the floor of the room. There is a rope tied off with an old rusty piton that drops down into the opening.
As you contemplate this, wondering how you and Kheldon are going to get down to the floor of the room, you hear a loud voice behind you “Nekki, you are here just in time!”
Kheldon is a bit intimidated by the giant standing behind you but stands his ground with flattened ears and a growl...“Calm your wolf Nekki, I am only here to bring you to the others.”
You place your hand on Kheldon and assure him everything is fine. He is calmed relatively easy, and as you are scratching his neck, the giant lightly touches you on the sleeve, speaking words you don't understand. The next moment you are surprised to find yourself standing amongst the group in the room inside the mountain.
