Standing over the bodies of the wizard and the ogre, Darryl casts Speak with Dead on the wizard and asks:
Q: Why did you attack us
A: Following my mistress’ orders
Q: Who is your mistress?
Q: Where can we find her?
A: Down the hall
The party leaves the bodies in the pillared chamber, and heads back down the hall that Eiric had just send a lightning bolt down, and came upon another dead blind ogre, and behind that, the veiled corpse of Lachesis the medusa. Darryl, wanting more answers, casts Speak with Dead on her.
Q: Who are you?
Q: Why did you try to kill us?
A: You were coming to kill me
(No one remembers what was actually asked/answered, and my notes just say “when”)
Searching the bodies, careful to avoid uncovering her head, they took her jewelry and then headed back toward the hall of statues they’d spied earlier. Among the figures was the petrified Yolanda. Sadly, for the moment, the magic to restore her is beyond Eiric’s ability. Beyond the other figures was a spiked trapped door, which Koltic chooses to open. Half a dozen spikes shoot out from the door, several of them striking him. Beyond the door are Lachesis’ suite, including the ogres & Skelmis’ quarters. Much looting was done. The snake in her footlocker was displeased to be disturbed, but it found biting through Karl’s armor difficult. The giant rats (pets? livestock?) were violently poked to death by Kili.
Loaded down with loot, the party hussles from the dungeon back to town.
Eiric and Brie spend the next 2 weeks investigating the various magic items.
Karl buys a building in town and sets up a “Kinda Fancy Hat Shop”
Kili looks for property to open a “Totally not a Payday Lender Loan Shop & Shrine to the 7”
Koltic throws a disappointing party.
Karl throws an epic shindig, but has to get Lex to help him cover the cost overruns.
