28 THE FORGE. This large building is actually just a roof and wooden supports with no real walls. Quantities of firewood protected by tarps are nearby. As it is approached, the loud sounds of hammering on metal can be heard, only to go eerily silent when the place is approached to within fifty feet.
If entered, adventurers will find the forge to be complete with anvils, firepits, and all of the necessary tools. The fires are still blazing and the various weapons, horseshoes, and tools that are being worked on are present.
The forge is actually inhabited by a group of permanently invisible dwarves. They resent intrusion and will wait silently until strangers leave.
25 Invisible Dwarves (AC 0; MV 6”; HD 1; hp 5 each; D Hammer; SD Invisible; XP 19 each)
They are surly, prideful, and unfriendly, but not hostile unless placed under stress or attacked. They greatly dislike thieves and are naturally suspicious. Things personally carried by the dwarves will turn invisible. They can fight as invisible and their AC is 4 to creatures who can see invisible. Each dwarf will have 5-20 (5d4) gold mabans. The dwarves are neutral in alignment.
