Three party members were turned to stone by the foul (ha!) creature, but the party killed it & found a quick way to carry some of the treasure to the surface.

Outcome

  • Heroes lost: None!
  • Monsters Vanquished: 4 large spiders, 1 giant spider
  • Treasure Recovered: 1200cp, 1000sp
  • Experience Earned: 600xp (monsters) + 1120xp (treasure) = 1720xp

Summary

A party led by Timoteo and Ray descended into the Under Mausoleum.

They set the loyal tracking hound [[Cezare?]] to find the remaining missing children, but as they advanced southward they encountered large spiders. Slaying these, they advanced, then played a cat-and-mouse game with an enormous specimen. Careful use of flaming oil & missile barrages won the day. They found the creature’s lair, where they found the sad remains of the remaining missing children, as well as much treasure, and a strange magic circle chalked on the ground within a few paces of the great spider’s nest.

  • Target:
  • Plan (if any): Terg’s Vote-Recover the Crown of Thuro from beyond the locked door off the suspiciously empty room. Recover the petrified Doe from behind the secret panel. Find Kort, Tork’s brother, if indeed he was snatched to the mausoleums below. Bonus- if Terg is not invited, the entity he contacted will have no claim on the Crown, since he doesn’t earn shares from expeditions he’s not on…

Hirelings:

Outcome

  • Heroes lost: None!
  • Monsters Vanquished: 4 red-eyed men
  • Treasure Recovered: 2 spellbooks
  • Experience Earned: 400xp (monsters) + 1000xp (rescues)
  • Information from the Captured Children: Their experience has been terrifying, and they are reluctant to speak of it, but it can be pieced together. They were grabbed during daylight, while alone or in pairs, and held in a small dark room in Town. Then, later, they were taken below-ground. They were kept & guarded in the same stone-walled room from which they were rescued. Some children were already there ahead of them. At an unknown interval a well-dressed, bearded man with a strange cape would come to the room from one door & take a child away through another door. The man returned, but the children did not. Throughout they were kept well fed & reasonably comfortable, and were not physically harmed.
  • Information from Captured Red-Eyed Men: These two men were turned over to the Haven Town Watch by the Captain & his mercenaries upon reaching the surface. The PCs had some brief chance to question them on the way, but their answers were vague & confusing. They willingly admit to being hired by Amedeo. They say they come Below – nothing more than that. Finally, when brought to the surface they grow sullen, their answers mumbled & confused, and they hide their eyes from the sun. Interestingly, their eyes seem to have lost the red glint when they reached the surface. Now the Watch holds them for questioning in relation to the kidnapping of children, and they are (at least for now) beyond the reach of the PCs.

Summary

Another rescue mission into the Under Mausoleum, this time to grab Doe and find Kort. The mission was a success. The party also killed several of Amedeo’s red-eyed men, then confronted the wizard to find he had already escaped.

The party returned to the surface intent on trying the locked door next time, to see if they can uncover the [[Crown_of_Thuro?]].
