Graven paused for a moment then shrugged - "Let me finish cutting down Kartenix's body first"

Inatai had spent the time so far tending to his wounds and regaining his composure. The poison had taken its toll on him.

"I would also be in favour of a rest, but know that the more time we take, the lesser the chances are of finding further survivors. Assuming you are concerned with such matters, that is," he pointed out. He then picked up the bracers they had found, trying one on for size. "These, I believe, may be useful..."

When Kartenix's body is freed, it's quite obvious that the ettercaps had a lot of fun with him. There are blackened bite marks in odd shapes all over his body. It's rather gruesome actually.

"I will carry him. Let's at least get his body out of here." Sertanian takes a measure of the webbing and fashions himself a rather handy back sheath for the fullblade he's taken on loan. Not something everyone would know how to do.

Picking up the body of his friend, he faces Graven and nods "Lead the way."

- "That pit again." - Graven muttered when they back-tracked to the hole they jumped through the last time - "Hold on a second, I might have thought of a better way to get us through this..." - warforged stood there for a moment as if conecntrating then suddenly Karan found herself looking at the party from the other side of the hole - "Yes that should work. It's going to be a bit slow though"

Though a bit shaken with the mode of transport to get over the pit, your party makes it safely outside. It's rained since you've been inside, but only lightly. Your cave is still dry.

Inatai notices a branch that has fallen from a nearby tree, and props it in front of the cave entrance. The result is that you can see out, and it's quite difficult to see in. Once again Graven takes up watch, while offering some more rations to your guest.

The day burns on into night, and it's nearly dark before you're all feeling rested enough to venture forth again.

- "Well then" - Graven spoke when rest of the party woke up - "No point in wasting time - let's head back in and see if we can find some more people to escort back with Mr. Sertian"

'Graven is right, no point in wasting time' agreed Karan, yawning slightly. 'I'll take the point.

- "There is that, and there is the central door in the entry room, but we still haven't finished with the left passage - there were doors in the room we fought ettercaps. Well doors and stairs, but I think it's better to stay on this level for the moment."

Entering into the crypts once more, there's not much that has changed while you've been gone. You take a left back into the Goblin's Warren, and try the western doorway out of it. This appears to be another entry into the larger room with the shimmering picture. Entering from this angle gives you a better view of the castle and it's swampy surrounds in the shimmering haze. It looks down on you without comment as Graven ushers you past towards the ettercap room.

The ettercap corpses don't smell any better after several hours left in the damp crypt air. At least these corpses haven't disappeared. Trying the north door, you're faced with a swift right turn. Rounding this corner greets you with a pile of furs and bedrolls covering the floor. Sacks and rucksacks line the walls near them, as well. There's a wrought iron spiral staircase descending into the floor in the north east. Oh, and you're also greeted by the rough barking noise of a drake alerting his hobgoblin companion. Looks like someone was expecting you.

Encounter: Rivenroar Family Crypt

The Hobgoblin bellows and rushes headlong at your group, (very) badly missing an attack against Graven. He should be easy to finish off.

The hobgoblin might have been terrible on the offense, but he sure knew how to defend himself, easily blocking both Graven's counter and the blow that followed. Not at all satisfied with his attacks the warforged slipped to the side, making space for others.

Inatai advanced in his usual way - teleporting through the shadows from one spot to another, appearing in the spot Graven had recently vacated. His attack, however, fell shamefully short of its intended mark.

"May Pelor bless us with victory! Graven, duck!" Norian quickly fired a Finger of Pelor at the Hobgoblin, Hoping to succeed where his comrades had failed so far. Whoever drew first blood would have a psychological edge on the opponent. That is one of the things Aden always told him.

The little ball of green scales that is the drake bounds forward to protect its handler, but its teeth bounce off of Graven's armor.

  Feeling more comfortable with his shift in spell focus, Adis held his Orb aloft as he chanted. Soon both the Drake and the Hobgoblin were focusing more on swatting the air around them than to the party.
