Introduction

Talk to Commander Veldaban, who can be found in the Black Guard Headquarters in West Keldagrim.

He will tell you that the Red Axe have left the consortium completely, something which none of the other companies have ever done before and will ask you if you are interested in finding out what they are up too. He will then go on to tell you that the only lead he has is a drunken dwarf in East Keldagrim and will ask you if you know him. Shortly after a cutscene you will find yourself outside the Drunken Dwarf's house. Speak to the Dwarf and ask him what he knows about the Red Axe. He will reply that he can't think when he's sober, and will ask you to get him some of the good stuff.

Kelda Stout

Head south to the Laughing Miner pub and buy a beer for 2gp. Give this to the Drunken Dwarf and he will tell you that it's the wrong kind, and will ask you to get him a Kelda Stout. However you can't get Kelda Stout in Keldagrim, and he will give you a Kelda seed, and tell you that you will have to make it yourself. You will also need three other seeds to grow the Kelda Hops, which his drinking buddies might have.

Head south and speak to the Rowdy Dwarf who is nearby the pub. He will ask you to get him a random item in return for his Kelda Seed. The second dwarf Khorvak can be found in the pub under White Wolf Mountain and after a short conversation, will let you 'borrow' his Kelda seed. The final dwarf you need to speak to is called Gauss and he can be found in West Keldagrim pub. He will simply ask that you toast him in return for his seed. When you have the four Kelda seeds, make your way to the hops farming patch in West Keldagrim and speak to Rind the Gardener for advice on planting the hops. Rake the patch and plant the Kelda seeds. The approximate growing time is 10-15 minutes. A message will appear when they are ready to be harvested.

When the Kelda Hops have grown, harvest it and make your way back to the Laughing Miner pub in East Keldagrim. Go upstairs and buy 2 ale yeast from Blandebir. Add the two buckets of water to the fermenting vat, then the two barley malt followed by the Kelda hops and the pot of yale yeast. It will take around 10 minutes for the vat to mature (a message will say when it's ready), and once it has turn the valve, level the Kelda stout and then use a beer glass with the barrel to receive a Kelda Stout.

Take the Kelda Stout back to the Drunken Dwarf and he will then begin to tell you his tale about the Red Axe, including the abyss, pink dragons and an entrance that was boarded up. Now go south and speak to the Cart Conductor near the boarded up entrance. He will tell you that he doesn't have the authority to open it up, and that if you have any influential friends to ask them. Make your way to the consortium in the middle and speak to the Director of the company you joined in the Giant Dwarf quest. He will order the removal of the boards, so return back to the carts and ride the southern track to enter the tunnel.

Redirecting the Tracks

Open the box to receive some stones and then control the dwarven machinery to open up a interface. You will be redirecting the track throughout the chasm. The stones help control the junctions, and you can get more by searching the boxes marked in blue on the interface. Place the stones as shown in the picture below to reach the first blue box:

Open the box to get more stones, and then ride the cart back to the entrance. With your new additions of stones, match the interface to this

Open to box to get more stones, and then ride back to the entrance. Finally, match the interface to this

and you will go through another cave entrance. You will overhear a conversation involving the Red Axe. When it has ended, crawl through the cave to go through the entrance at the end.

You will now be in another chasm, so search the box to get the stones and then control the dwarven machinery. Match the interface to this

and search the box to get more stones, and then return back to the entrance. Open up the interface again and match it to this

and open to box to get more stones, and then ride the cart back to the entrance. Finally, match the interface to this

and you will find yourself in a storeroom.

Search the crates and boxes for vital information on the Red Axe, and then enter the cave entrance to move deeper into the tunnel. Once again, you will find yourself in a chasm where you must direct the cart. Search the box to get stones, and then match the dwarven machinery interface to this

to get more stones, and then ride back to the entrance. Match the second interface with this

to reach another box with stones. Ride the cart back to the entrance and finally match the interface to this

to find yourself in another cave. A cut scene will then take place, in which it will be revealed that the Red Axe have created themselves an army of Chaos Dwarves. Shortly after, you will be discovered by an Ogre Shaman and he will cast a spell on you and you will find yourself by the mining carts outside the cave.

Return back to Commander Veldaban and you will suddenly have a craving for a kebab and a beer in the Laughing Miner pub. Buy a beer and a Kebab in East Keldagrim, and then eat it in the Laughing Miner.
