What do you do with a drunken Ironbeard?

I heard them coming into the cave from a mile away. Not sure if it is because of my keen senses or the stumbling drunk dwarf. If I hadn't heard them, the smell of that dwarf would have alerted me for sure. I've gotten accustomed to adventurers coming to try and plunder the treasure of Talos' Tempest so I went to my usual hiding places to watch as they got in over their head.

It appears they've decided to leave the dwarf at the entrance passed out. Those damn stone fuckers are too reliant on alcohol.

As they walked the beach, Bruce and Chum ambushed them. I hadn't realized it had been so long since I had seen them but it has to have been at least a month. Guess they were hungry for human meat. Unfortunately, Chum was killed in the fight but not before getting a couple of good bites in. Bruce eventually ran realizing that he couldn't take them. I've told him before that you need to separate out the weak ones from the group but he's too headstrong and rash to have realized there was a dwarf all alone and asleep at the cave mouth. I'll have to bury Chum later, though I just realized I've never seen him in his human form before. Not as ugly as I would have thought.

So these geniuses decided to head to the wreck instead of the graveyard to "avoid any undead." I nearly gave away my position by laughing out loud. Needless to say, they were quite surprised to encounter the ghostly remnants of the crew. That was one nasty fight, I'm pretty sure that the group nearly lost one of their members in the fray but in the end, they dispatched the crew. Looks like I might have to find another cave to live in soon, or at least find someone else to move in to work as guards. Maybe I'll go talk to those weird ass halflings that live in the swamp. I'm pretty sure they think I don't know where their village is since they tried to alter my memories. I could probably black mail them.
