Feeling a sense of purpose (mapping every room in the dungeon! Or at least level 1...) the party gathers everyone together and enter the benighted halls… And Darryl decides that being an active member of the party might be better than being tied up and dragged along.

Going straight for the (un)Contested Corridors and directly to the dilapidated hall, then bank over toward the chamber of the desert where a small group of goblins lurks beyond the portcullis with bows. While they get a few shots off, the party barrels through both the gate and the goblins, catching them in the hall as they ran, and cutting most of them down.

Continuing down the corridor they zig-zag around the chamber of jungles, to the east hall, and then back around to the chamber of meadows. Heading up out of the chamber, Matthias notes that there’s a secret door in the hallway, and they find it connects to the old empty guard room.

Once in the chamber of the mountains, the party banks toward the hall leading to Kobold Corners, and stops at an unchecked door. Eiric opens it up to reveal a large dusty kitchen. He doesn’t notice the footprints in the dust, and is bashed in the head by a goblin with a frying pan, dropping hard to the ground. The rest of the party swarmed into the room, and slaughtered the goblins before they landed another solid blow. Daryll rushes over and uses his divine gift to heal Eiric.

Feeling confident in her party Eiric checks out the next room (this time not alone) but still manages to stumble into danger. This time literally, as she puts her foot in a rusty old bear trap! Whether from the trauma or the shock, she again drops. The trap is pried from her leg, and again Daryll calls upon his divine gift.

As the Korners were so near, the party returned there to rest. Trustee Sniv met up with them in the tavern, and seeing Sarin told him that he was cut out of the deal, and that if he didn’t perform a task for the kobolds, he wasn’t welcome. He agreed immediately, and was handed a mop, and taken down the hall. The party followed to see what would result. The midden stunk to high heaven! And he got to mop the whole area. The grime covered reliefs carved into the walls were only of interest in that he had to clean them. Thankfully he didn’t have to get into the pit in the middle of the room.

After recovering a bit the party headed back to town.

Gains: Darryl
Kills: 10 goblins
