Continuing to explore the red temple, the party discovers a standing iron maiden. Boris investigates, and has the overwhelming urge to climb into the blade lined interior. He’s physically restrained from doing so, and dragged away. Then a wraith attacks, targeting Joho, who feels weaker from the encounter. Eiric removes the enchantment on Boris, and the wraith is dispatched. A bottle of perfume, and some coins are discovered hidden in the cell.
Further exploration finds the kitchen and mess hall. Morgana collects a small box of chopsticks. Various undead spirits are turned or destroyed. Circling around the party ends up back at the main hall. Taking the stairs up to explore the upper side of the temple, 8 shadows detach from the wall and attack the party. Boris finds his turning ineffective, and Borumar and Joho are hurt and weakened.
A quick exploration of the torture chamber and prison cells makes everyone feel queezy, and finding little of value, they head out and back to Kobold Korners. After some rest, they head back down to the Temple of Pain. The doors are again closed, but the wizards use their knock spells to open the way.
Continuing to explore the upper half of the temple, they find some small treasures, are set upon by a wandering Pain Maiden, find another in a common room, and easily banish a pair of wraiths, but not before Borumar has his strength drained by 8!!
Helping Borumar’s limp self out, they head back to town.
