After defeating the two defending cultists and setting fire to the ‘Curtain Club’, our heroes decided to explore deeper into the underground chambers.
The first exit they tried was where the defenders came from. Down a hall they found a spartan bed chamber, with a suit of enchanted armor laid out for repairs, and a small bag of platinum coins and a gold necklace hidden under the bed pallets
Then they went down the central hall and found three doors. The first was a set of double doors that smelled of animals, and they decided not to attempt it. Boomah tied the two rings together in hopes of slowing anything that tried to leave through that way.
The hall ended in another set of double doors, wide and carved with Mephitis symbols, so they kept away from it as well. The third was barred from the other side, which intrigued the group. Boomah used a combo of fire and ice bombs to shatter the hinges, and they moved past the now-broken door.
Kallius took the lead in exploring the narrow passage, and soon came to a heavy, undecorated door. Boomah and Saerin examined it, and found no traps. However, they overlooked a glyph inscribed in the portal and a burst of electricity shot out, followed by a darkness that even the goblin’s site could not easily pierce.
Dremahl summoned Daylight to counter the darkness, and the party saw two figures hiding behind an opening down the hall. The two fired crossbow bolts from hding, trying to pin down our heroes. Undaunted, they charged. One of the cultists tried to get around them, but they cut him down as he tried to escape up a stair down a side passage. The other fared little better, and was soon felled as well.
Leaving the door the fleeing cultist was heading toward, they continued on their previous path. They found a side door and heard whimpering inside. They let it be.
Continuing to the end of the hall, they saw an opening to a chamber, but nothing moved and no danger presented itself. Entering, they found a well-appointed bed chamber. Boomah was suddenly attacked by a swift moving corpse from behind the entrance. The creature was tough and its claws sapped our heroes’ strength, bbut their greater numbers soon prevailed. They noted that the mangled corpse had a very pretty face and expensive bed clothes. They began to inspect the furnishings in the chamber, in hopes of loot and in preparation for more danger deeper down these corridors.
