Picking up where we left off in the reptile house, the party cautiously scouts around, but the lizardmen seem to have retreated back to their caves. Eiric calls for a retreat back to town. The party made it's way carefully back to the Asylum, and up into the antechambers and out.
Once back in town, the party waited for the return of their vacationing hirelings, and then once again returned to the dungeon a couple of days later.
Once back in the Snake Halls, they return to the lounge, and back into the hall of the Hooded Cobra. With no sign of the lizarmen, the party continues on, coming to a training hall. Old dummies lay scattered about, with empty weapon racks lining the walls. Gathering up the dummies, they're placed as a barricade in the doorway closest to the lizardmen caves.
Following the hallway around to where the lounge overlooks the area, the find the barracks where the combatants were housed, and the secret treasure within. Looking into the arena, the dead lizardmen had been left behind, but as usual, they had nothing on them. To the side was a shoot heading up. A-A-Ron carefully climbed it while the party waited below. He emerged in the dusty Quiet Halls, and then climbed back down.
Back to the training room, the party climbed over their own barricade, and head toward the caves. Before they got there, 4 carnivorous flies flew toward them. They didn't even make it close enough to bite at the party before their crossbows had turned them into pincushions.
Heading south into the caves, they were immediately spotted by a reinforced watch post. They fumbled a bit (lost initiative) but sounded the horn, alerting all that the party was in sight. Combat began. The first line of defenders was quickly cut down, as was the second...
