Back in town, Karl hires Scar the Useless, and Borumar returns from whatever it was the thieves guild had him doing.
The party gears up, and returns to the dungeon. After a quick trip to Kobold Korners, they head back down to the 2nd level and then to the 3rd. A tentacled beast crawling on the ceiling was lurking out in the hallway, and in spite of its reach and many attacks, the party slaughtered it with a hail of crossbow bolts.
The sound of metal on stone draws the party to a closed door, behind which is a kobold work crew fixing some smashed masonry. The grumpy kobolds blame the nearby ogres, and point the party to them.
Following the kobold forman’s directions, the party quickly comes across a bunch of ogres. They initiate hostilities by tossing small boulders at the party, and Karl and Orpheus quickly move to close the range. The ruckus of the fight draws more ogres, and in the melee both GoMat and Darryl are pounded down. Quick efforts (and healing potions) keep them from visiting the underworld. After the long combat is over, Lex and Bollox are sent to go talk to the kobolds and let them know that the ogres have been dealt with while the rest of the party bandages their wounds, searches for treasure, and piles all the large bodies in one corner.
Among the loot is a magical greatsword! Not knowing the enchantment, the party opts not to use it right away.
Scar is discovered to not only be useless, but also to suffer from a painful stutter, making any conversation with him take f-f-f-f-f-f-f-f-f-f-f-... a long time.
Checking out some of the surrounding rooms, the party finds a stashed case of old elven wine and a barrel of cheap rum. Karl drinks some of both. Gathering their loot, the party heads back to Kobold Korners, sells the wine, and informs Sniv of the big barrel of rum.
