Joho, still invisible, sneaks in the back door of the Hall of the Mountain Trolls and into a large corridor. Heading to the nearest door, he listens, and hears voices talking on the other side. He unlocks the door, and carefully opens it a crack. Within are 5 mountain trolls spinning and combing wool. He decides to lob a vial of oil at one of the laps near the trolls, starting a big fire. The trolls scream, which causes another group of 5 bigger trolls to come investigate. Morgana, watching from the doorway, chucks a fireball at the collected group, then summons a water elemental to handle the smaller trolls. A somewhat protracted battle occurs while Joho tries to make it back to the doorway, and everyone else tries to clear the way for him. Biffin charges through the trolls to get to Joho, who’d gotten himself surrounded. The two of them manage to finish off the 5 bigger trolls, but not before Biffin drops. Joho grabs a few jewels from the trolls that he can easily see, and then Biffin’s body and runs for the door.

At the same time the biggest mountain troll yet, along with a few other beefy friends rounds the corner and starts charging toward the party. Morgana casts Invisibility on the party, and they all cluster quietly together as the trolls begin to search for them. The trolls spend quite a while looking, and among them is an old hag of a troll who carries her head under her arm, the nose dragging on the floor.

Once the trolls give up the search, and the way is clear, the party makes for the surface.

Gains: 400gp in jewelry
Kills: Mountain trolls
Losses:  Biffin
