At the door Crunching can be heard. Elos thrusts the door open and throws in the torch to reveal 4 ghouls eating on a body, He closes the door and the ghouls clamber until one is successful and Elos brings downs his axe. With the sheer force of the blow he drags him down to death and the door slams shut again.
Krud successfully kicks the door open and the 3 remaining ghouls lunge towards the door. Brax lets fly missles “Pish Pish Pish” Shado and Barkle both land arrows.Crud slashes a ghoul. I come in and slice the head off a ghoul. Barkel shoots a thunder wave that rings through like a wet fart. Two ghouls bite at Elos and the poison does not affect him. I swing back at the ghoul that is near Elos and chop off both his legs. Elos swings his axes and relieves the last ghoul of his head. Elos takes Willy’s water flask and fills up with Ghoul blood.
Upon review of the review the merry band of heros can see it is an old barracks. Barkle and Elos use the Ghoul Blood to dip each of their arrows. Krud checks the door at the West for traps. A pathway reveals a mined area but no loot. Braximus investigates a cave in when out of no where a Giant Yellow Blob falls on the floor cutting him off from the rest of the team.
Braximus yells out that no one should hit this foul creature with a slashing weapon as it might split. Shado and Barkel use their magic to damage the creature. I pull out my crossbow for the first time and my arrow disappears in the blob. Braximus and Adara slam down fire and kill this unsightly beast. Braximus’ interest pays off and he finds a few bits of gold nuggets.
We venture forward and found a cavern 60×100 ft filled with still water. Adara checks the water and it is very dark and covers the entire room. At the NE a tunnel provides the source of this water. Adara tosses a handful of salt in the water and it immediately returns to still. We head towards a large stone staircase.
We find a door with voices in goblin saying “we are hungry”. The team assembles to create a choke point. Barkle opens the door and lets loose an arrow that misses. 2 Bugbears rush out and 1 hits Barkle with a morning star. Elos and Krud loose an arrow into one bug bear. Adara shoots a firebolt that smashes into the same bug bear. I take two massive swings at the same bug bear. Shado nails the bug bear in the eye and he falls to the side. Elos slices the bug bear in half. And the 3rd disappears. Another bug bear comes from the North Staircase. Adara shoots fire and scorches this bear. The door swings open and another bug bear comes straight for me. Shado sticks an arrow in this bug bear. Elos rushs the Bug Bear at the Staircase and his axe gets stuck in the bug bear as he falls over. The last bug bear starts to flee with terror of his fellow brothers. I swing at his Achilles tendons and he falls to the floor.
Braximus interrogates this Bug Bear with authority in his native tongue. We find that black spider is up the North Stairs to the left. We now know he is a male Drauwe magician named Nesnar, Elos finds a vitality potion, cures poison or disease or exhaustion and maximizes hit die healing for 24 hours. The team moves into the large room and locks the doors.
