Back in town, studying a book* from the forbidden section of the library, Sempai's unfortunate habit of reading things aloud triggers and her body guard find themselves in a dark corridor.
After a bit of rest following their battle with the thoules, the party opens the door to go exploring again, and come face to face with Sempai, and Burdock. They opt not to try to kill each other, and go exploring. Past the thoule's chamber the next room has some giant ticks. One manages to latch onto Tobias, draining her down to a single hp.
The next chamber contains a large statue of a oliphant, and a warning echoes loudly "Approach not the best, lest you bear the oliphant's greatest fear!"
Leroy decides not to heed this warning, enters the room, and the door closes behind him. The statue comes to life and charges Leroy, tossing him like a rag doll. Burdock opens the door to try to help, but gets smacked. Sempai tries to use her feminine wiles to seduce the oliphant, but the stone beast is unimpressed, and headbutts her. Tobias rushes over to render aid, and "administers some mouth to mouth" help. The henchman have no interest in engaging a giant statue, so instead watch Tobias "lay on hands" on Sempai.
Leroy is trapped and dodging wildly the tusks of the statue, but can't get to the door. Wilhelm makes one, and Leroy escapes with his life.The oliphant doesn't seem interested in leaving the room, and the party decides to check out a corridor.
Unfortunately all the racket they made alerted the bro'gers who were working out, and were now waiting for the party. Caught by surprise, they received several free weights to the face before realizing what had happened. By the end the bro'gers were dead, but the party was hurting, so retreated back to their safe(ish) room.
Kills: 3 bro'gers
Song of the session: Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing
*The Dicronomicon, if you were curious.
