The Deepriver Mining Camp is an installation that incorporates the Icozrin Steelworks and is approximately one day's travel from Rosohna on moorbounders. The journey is rather dangerous as it means passing through the Ghostlands.
It forms the backbone of Xhorhasian heavy industry. It is also the hub of the effort in the war against the Dwendalian Empire.
The Deepriver mining camp is a collection of roughly built wooden buildings, surrounded by a large, wooden fence constructed from huge logs. It is clearly a defensive location due to the various hazards and threats that reside in the surrounding area, including stone giants, wolves and giant spiders.
The camp and steelworks takes its name from the Den Icozrin, the family that control the installation.
"Wood and Steel" (2x58)
The Mighty Nein are informed that the mining camp and steelworks have been overrun by giants and are tasked by Professor Waccoh to clear them out in order to get the installation up and running again. As a side mission, she also wants them to humiliate the manager, Foreman Bodo.
They travel out to the temporary camp the workers have set up, where Fjord both humiliates and interrogates the Foreman. They also ask one or two of the workers for information, in order to gain some intelligence about what they will be facing. From there, they set out to brace the giants at the mining camp.
The Mighty Nein make their way inside the encampment and battle three stone giants who are inside on guard. The remaining five stone giants that form the tribe being currently away on a hunting trip.
The fight comes to an abrupt end, when the team are able to subdue, rather than kill the giants and find out the reason why they attacked the mining camp. The Mighty Nein the persuade Soorna, the stone giant druid and tribal leader to guide them to the stone giants' home called Braan (Giant for 'Belly') in the mountains and drive out the creatures who forced them out.
After the Mighty Nein have cleared out Braan, they return to the mining camp and let the stone giants know that they can safely return to their home. They then watch as the giants make their way out of the gates. After a short rest, the Nein depart themselves in order to inform Foreman Bodo that he and his workers can return to work.
