Departing town, the party heads for the Hobgoblin caves, only to discover a gargoyle perched over the door. It isn’t aggressive, and the party carefully goes under it and into the caves.
Heading down to the Temple of Pain to wrap up the map, they explore the deepest parts of the temple, finding the prison and torture chamber. The torture chamber contains all the expected devices, as well as some difficult to identify devices. Karl feels the need to poke all the items, and most of the party tries to leave the room before anything bad happens.
They fail. The device crackles, and bolts of energy shoot out, draining a bit of their life away. The device goes dark.
Departing the temple, they check the caves to the south, where 4 large crickets with feathery antennae begin to approach the party. Morgana tosses a dagger at them, and one of the creatures turns the well honed steel into red dust in seconds. Meanwhile Karl leaps up onto one of the bugs and rides it like a bucking bronco, shedding bits of armor as he goes. Morgana casts sleep, knocking one of the beasts out. Kili charges in to rescue Karl, bashing with his magic mace. The mace survives… Ool kills one with his magic mace, and magic missiles finish off the rest. Collecting the bits of dragon scale that Karl shed, they head back to town.
Kills: Agonies, Pain Maidens, Rust Monsters
