A-A-Ron, Thief 5 (Henchman)
Orpheus, Human Fighter 5 (Henchman)

Having caught their breath, the party notices that a troop of lizardmen have taken an interest in them. Various times throughout the ‘night’ they see the lizardmen poke their heads around. Otherwise they take no other action.

After resting the party gears up, and with kobolds in tow, head back toward the hobgoblin occupied areas. First is checking out the rooms occupied by the hobgoblins in the reptile house. They manage to avoid a simple trap, a bucket of hobgoblin shit in a bucket. Karl claims the bucket, and makes Kanye carry it. Kanye demands 15gp for the honor. Karl uses the poop to smear all over the beds of the hobgoblins.

Eiric has everyone dress up in hobgoblin outfits from the chests in the barracks. Karl has to do some serious tailoring to get it to even vaguely fit.

Moving into the main halls of the redoubt, the party comes across a hobgoblin barricade, and Karl uses his pick-ax to bring it down. A-A-Ron scouts ahead, and discovers a strange tiled room of colored lights that emerge from large mirrored balls that shine all over.

The kobolds are assigned construction duty to ensure that nothing comes around from behind.

Karl then heads into the room, and is hit by a beam of light that burns him, and then shot at by hobgoblins lurking beyond the disco room. Yelling the equivalent of “bullshit!” in dwarven, he charges toward the hobgoblins while Orpheus mutters “Shit, come on!” and charges after him. Naideen and Hobart follow along with Kanye and Barr. The disco lights are all avoided or have no effect on those they hit.

From the other side of the hall, more hobgoblins start shooting at those who didn’t charge across the disco room. Limdal and E both drop, but Daryll uses his magic to get them back up on their feet.

Karl and Orpheus (and hirelings) wade into the hobgoblins, mowing most of them down in a single swing each. The first half dozen are reinforced by another half dozen along with a champion. Orpheus calls him out, and cuts him down in a single mighty blow (another critical!).

Standing among the fallen hobgoblins, Karl and Orpheus can hear more coming from multiple directions…
