When you awake you move into the next chamber of the mine and discover more slaughtered dwarves with their hands removed. These dwarves are soldiers wearing the crests and sigils of Forgehome. As before, all metal appears to be missing. This time the answer is clear. As you enter the room you discover a Rust Monster that is trying to climb up to a rocky shelf. You also notice more myconids who take a strong interest in you. You kill the Rust Monster and destroy the myconids.
The Rust Monster was trying to retrieve a dagger that had been thrown up on to the shelf by one of the dwarves.
