SESSION 17: DAY 8 – THE CAVES OF CHAOS
Asmodeus be praised Lucien muses to himself. He quickly moves back to the group gathering Kord and Malandir on the way.
They assemble in the 20 x 30 room where the first group of goblins had been. There is a small fire pit in the room, with a few old crates which are being broken up for firewood. There is nothing of any value here. There is a corridor to the east which turns south.
Lucien tells the party of what occurred in the west and then reasons with them. “What say we? Do we chase after the larger group to the east and capitalize on the fear generated? We are not that bad off, health wise. There was only one remaining coward that escaped to the west, but that way lies our exit. Our decision depends on how cautious the group wishes to be.”
A small party of three men at arms is sent to rapidly recover the ears and anything of value from the fallen goblins in the west.
As they go to leave they pick up one of the torches on the ground. They learn that it’s now covered in dirt and will only provide light for 15ft radius instead of 30ft. Both of the damaged torches flutter and go out. Lucien hands them his torch and they scurry off.
In the meantime, in the light provided from Kord’s light spell which he had placed upon his shield, they check the bodies of the goblins in the room.
The three man party soon returns. Between both groups they have recovered 9 sets of ears, 9 small short swords, 9 small short bows and 4gp.
A quick summary of party xp earned so far is provided in the following table.
