The Deep Descent is an old guard chamber that oversees the entrance to the mines below. The mastery of this chamber has allowed the dwarf-expedition to control the passage between The Silvertine Lodes and the Great Delving, preventing the goblins from massing together into an unstoppable horde. Nevertheless, they remain badly outnumbered and are pressed daily to hold the chambers against the vicious foes that inhabit the deeps.

New travelers to the Silvertine Lodes are most likely to enter the region from The Great Delving in the north, by way of the gateway called the Stone Council. Here, just across the border into the Silvertine Lodes — a short jaunt from the lively refuge of the Free People in the Dolven-view — the sole expedition post in the region stands at the edge of the mines, offering explorers one last chance for camaraderie before they plunge into the dark tunnels that beckon beyond. Where the refuge in the Great Delving is bright and airy, this somber camp huddles nervously amid crumbled passageways.

This is the staging ground for journeys to the south. It was from here that the most recent expedition group bound for the Waterworks set out, though no safe path yet connects that region in the south to this camp. Here, smart explorers and adventurers setting out to rediscover or tame the Silvertine Lodes can coordinate their actions with the planners from the Moria expedition.


The Deep Descent is located in the Silvertine Lodes. [9.8S, 112.6W]
