Oh, sure, but what I meant was more of a general summary; like who exactly is the Archivist, what happened after Beethro slays all the slayers, stuff like that.
I don't think I've touched the game for easily 2 years, so all this stuff is a bit blurry...
Of course, if there's a handy recap at the beginning of TSS, it will do nicely.

There is an optional recap at the beginning of TSS that touches on KDD, JtRH, TCB and beyond. Everything you need to know for TSS.

TSS has "a prologue where you can catch up on backstory if you'd like, prior to starting the first level" so you needn't replay the whole of TCB.

Here's a nice detailed summary, though it only covers the first two-thirds of TCB.

There's also a short version.

As for the rest of TCB from that point (the return to Estengard) onwards, here's my attempt at a summary. (I must confess that I had to look up a few details!)

I don't think the Abyssal Fortress was the Aumtlich Fortress... it's a tarstuff level, not an Aumtlich one.

(And I didn't find the Abyssal Fortress that bad. Upper Lowest was the worst. There are rooms there I never solved... like that one where you run around in circles dropping trapdoors. I just repeated them again and again until they just worked somehow... too much chaos with builders for me. I hate them... even when I see them used well in a hold, I still absolutely loath them. That's what Upper Lowest did to me. Give me acres of tar any day, at least that's easy to predict.)

Yes, it was Forgotten Ruins I was referring to as "the Aumtlich fortress" (and as being the hardest level, in my opinion). I ignored Rocky Hollow and Abyssian Fortress as they don't have any plot worth speaking of. Though Rocky Hollow is important in one respect:

Oh, and I found the room with Tendry now -- thank you for that! :thumbsup
