The Emerald Spire Superdungeon
Goblins prefer to dwell in caves, amid large and dense thickets of thistles and brambles, or in structures built and then abandoned by others.
The goblin cleric Skizzertz has taken over what is left of the tower’s kitchen and has converted it into his own laboratory. In it, he perfects his creation, his magnum opus: Clanky. Skizzertz found the damaged and discarded automaton 3 months ago and has managed to keep it a secret from Grulk and the rest of the goblin tribe by forbidding them entry. With a lot of luck, Skizzertz managed to reanimate the automaton by rummaging around in its damaged insides. The automaton perceives the shaman as its new master, and though it is but a shadow of its former self, Skizzertz has managed to fix many of Clanky’s problems, even going so far as to attach a bony human arm in place of one that was missing from the discarded automaton. The shaman is about ready to use Clanky to depose Grulk when the characters arrive at the complex.
Skizzertz fell in the PC’s assault and was unable to take over the goblin tribe.
