The elder stoneman gives your fractured form a looking-over. His body resonates with some fear.
He explains to you that you were caught in the cave-in you made when fighting the stonefire beast down there, and were heavily injured. While a mere several tons of stone would normally be no issue to you, the intense heat caused by the beast weakened your otherwise flawless body. It appears, he says, that the molten stone down in the mine acted as a sort of cement to fill your shattered body - he says that this is likely the only reason you are still in one piece.
You did, however, manage to slay the beast with your mighty cave-in. The dwarves have moved on, taking those few left living back towards their mountainhomes. There were not enough to continue their work here, and they gave their thanks for your valiant help, but could not afford to stay any longer.
The old golem's words begin to blur as the FURY AND HUNGER pulse louder inside you.
You run off into one of the stone dwellings. The content serenity of the houses gives way to fear as you begin pouring your TERRIBLE FURY into them. The house begins turning to DELICIOUS STONEFIRE around you, and you drink greedily of the dripping rock.
Your hunger sated, you come back into focus.
The elder stoneman and your ore-brothers stand in the doorway. You feel fear and anger resonating among them.
