Turning away from the Danse Macabre doors, the party turns toward the next set of unquiet crypts, and are immediately set upon by crypt shades and shadows. Then waves of zombies and more crypt shades emerge as the party fights its way to Mal’s chamber… which isn’t occupied, and looks like it’s been recently ransacked.

The party returns to the back door of Kobold Korners, and does a room by room sweep looking for more undead. Down by the stairs to the Hobgoblin Redoubt, they see not only the kobold watch stationed there, but also Brie! Everyone is thrilled to be reunited, and the party heads back down to talk with Trustee Sniv.

Resting for a few hours, the party gears up, and heads to the Reptile House. Encountering another group of Heartless, GoMat runs again, Darryl turns 2, they kill one, and capture the last by roping it up. Eiric asks Darryl to try to speak to it. Not expecting the spell to work, Darryl casts Speak With Dead. The heartless’ blank eyes blink, and then look to Darryl, and he asks his 3 questions. The heartless responds with an echoing dry raspy voice:
Darryl: Who made you?
Heartless: Ka-Nafer
D: Where is he?
H: Come find me…
D: What are you?
H: Your doom!
Darryl tells the rest of the party that he doesn’t think the spell worked as intended, and that he doesn’t think he was talking to the heartless in front of him.

They destroy the Heartless, and move to the recently excavated passage down into the sublevel. The flicker of blue flames from below heralds their next encounter...

Gains: Brie, GoMat, Noxic
Kills: Crypt Shades, Shadows, Zombies, Heartless
Losses: GoMat (again)
