We start off in the chamber where the last battle with the Orcs took place. Wither comes down from the second floor since he has no light to see much beyond a few passages. We form up and head into the ground floor double doors. Leads to a collapsed chamber beyond which we can hear falling water.
We find two secret doors leading to living areas and stairs to the second floor. Second floor holds quarters and unused rooms. We find magic boots in a chest that was in a hidden compartment. Move to the third level via the cart raising apparatus outside, we find a 100 ft long passage leading to a large chamber beyond the collapsed area. More apparati for lowering the carts are here. We see the water fall which creates a stream dividing the room. Two guards are posted on a bridge over the stream. Wither and Sidd sneak down into the room to take out the guards so the remainder of the party can climb down unhindered. We sneak up to the bridge and our plan is foiled as a cart and six more Orcs appear from the far end of the chamber and approach the bridge. Three Orcs break off and climb up to where the rest of the party is.
The Orcs are attacked, two of which are killed outright. Initiative is rolled. Wither and SIdd engage the Orcs on the far side of the bridge, the rest of the party teleports down via Omni’s power…unfortunately it moves them 10 feet short and they fall…since none are trained in acrobatics a d10 damage is rolled…9! Ouch!
Battle is tough. The third Orc on our side of the bridge is one tough SOB. The two guards and chief Orc are tough foes for Wither and Sidd. Highlight of the battle is Omni’s Burst 2 attack that scores two critical on the three foes it hits. During the battle one Orc breaks off and offers us treasure to help defeat the other Orcs, he the scampers up the ropes down the passage we came from. As the battle winds down an Ogre appears looking for the “Little Orc” that climbed away.
Omni engages in conversation with him, learning Lubash sent him to get the little orc. We tell the Ogre the little orc killed everyone….wasn’t us!!! Ogre wants us to follow him back to Lubash, we let him think we are as treasure is gathered and then we run away back up to the passage we came from and do a rest since we were 100% spent.
Wither is ready to level up and itching for an extended rest. We gain some treasures of use, the rest will be sold.
