Later, when the party had moped up the remaining orcs they found the bodies of six of the cult clan that Rangrim had mentioned - the Shadowed Chain. It was clear now why they were so called: tattoos of chains ran down from their eyes, down over their shoulders, down their arms ending in manacles on their wrists. Iconography of servitude and submission an anathema to dwarven kind could only mean that they worshipped the got of prisons and torture - Torog. But, why had this cult developed?
Killing the orcs that were in the room beyond the secret door, and taking the treasure they were fighting over, the party descended a circular stairwell where they saw more ominous clues as to the hand's origin.
An epic story carved into the walls of the stairwell depicting the dwarves battle against the a mighty stone-skinned colossal giant played itself out as the stairs descended deep below Stonefang Pass. The stone giant was seen killing dwarves by the hundred but as the stair turned, so did the fortune of the dwarves. First a spear gouged out the eye of the giant. Next it's colossal hand was severed. Then it's rib was broken by a hammer and pulled from it's chest. Finally the heart of the titanic giant was ripped out and Stonefang was subdued.
