We found ourselves in a dusty, mildewy room, laced with a tint like a burning campfire from the dead magna claws. Following one hallway that led down some stairs, we found two prisoners. The one that was alive was named Sertanian. He knew the name of the dead man to be Cartinex. Adara took the body of Cartinex and vowed to carry it back to town.
Going up some stairs, we encountered a trio of Ettercaps, mansized, spider-like creatures. A grueling battle ensued. With most of the party down, the last monster was finally killed by Falor, Saphire and Baelen. Luckily, all the fallen party members were able to be healed, thanks be to Doldorn.
After the battle, we found a silken bag with 100 gold coins and what turned out to be a Viper Belt, granting the wearer protection from poisoning (5). Offered to Adara, our leader in battle, she chose to give it to Falor.
Going up some more stairs brought us to a room filled with hobgoblins and spitting drakes. We decided to withdraw, but not before Falor took a direct shot in the face, scarring him for life. Descending down some other stairs, we ran across a lone drake with one hobgoblin. Our party made short work of the drake and then reinforcements showed up. We sent them running back to their masters and then went down a spiral staircase. In this room were 4 coffins. Searching the coffins, we discovered a pair of Arcanist glasses (+3 to Arcane checks). We then decided to return to the jail cells as we needed rest and that was the easiest room we had found to defend against attack.
During our searching, we also found a necklace of questionable power that neither Saphire nor Elias could identify. There was also a pair of Bracelets of Subtle Defense that gives a bonus to those trained to conceal their movements (+2 to stealth checks)(concealment from enemies until you attack).
