After defeating the explosive tinman that hide behind an iron door did our heroes enter the lair to find a giant copper dragon, not a white dragon.
His name is Medelemak and he explains how this came to be. Mouths ago he tunneled into this cave and killed a white dragon half his size, took his treasure, and with the help of a lady cleric decided to stage a festival.
Under the guise of the flamboyant host we saw our first night did he manage the assets and build the memorable maze. He promised the hamlet there would be new walls, wells, and a church after this week so the townspeople would agree to his askings. With the help of the priestess were the wererats poisoned as part of the downpayment.
Medelemak called this cave's former owner a white coward and daft wizard. Forced his will over hobgoblins, bugbears, a herd of minotaur like creatures, and small bands of orc for trinkets that they gathered in the area. The construct, screaming bolts, magic spoon, time scroll, elven boots, bracers, and luck stone were in his coffers. Though we do not know if he created any of them.
After an hour of his boasting he sends the lot through a portal in the ground. Teleporting all into the maze's jailcell with the magnet(key) in hand. The old paladin, Marian Silverkin, does not go thus choose to hike down the mountain and bury the dead properly.
Couple of hours later were our heroes gathered on stage and presented by the flamboyant host to onlookers. Those on stage were presented...
