The party returned to the watchtower, intent on killing [[Rikard?]]. They busted the door & were attacked by giant ferrets, leading to Ymar having his arm broken (though quick magical work from Terg saved his life. Once the ferrets were vanquished, they continue through the trapdoor down into the depths. The strange red underwold torches were all extuingished. In Rikard’s old room they met [[Ornir?]], a flunky of some kind who passed them a message from Rikard, but was convinced to join them in killing the bad guy (he seemed to have a grievance against his boss).
So, guided by Ornir, the party went down to the 2nd level. There they were ambushed in the process of setting their own ambush, but managed to retreat in order. Then they taunted Rikard out of the safety of his ranks, and shot him down in cold blood.
This did not please his many underlings, who charged, but a well-timed spell from Gale opened a pit to hold off the charge, and the party grabbed Rikard’s body & sword, and fled the scene!
First rank is toward the top.
