Ro-Mahn moved up the stairs and away from the mold, hunkering down in the shadows. The rogue checked the gate for traps. He did not find any but did determine that the gate was barred with a stout beam from the other side. His professional assessment was that the gate could be battered down but it might be easier for someone to scale it and open it from the other side.

Wahesh left the stairs and warily moved along the cliff toward the hanging rope. Stabem stepped in behind the fighter alert for new dangers. Barnacleez held his ground and awaited the appearance of a target.

The invisible opponent dropped another alchemist’s fire onto the brown mold. Again, the concoction burst into flames and were immediately extinguished. The patch of plant matter grew explosively covering the rest of the staircase and encroaching upon the ground on either end. This surge growth caught Cando and Lady Emyralda in its wake. The fighter took 11 more nonlethal damage but due to his orcish ferocity, he managed to maintain his feet. The cleric took 10 nonlethal damage.

Lady Emyralda beat a hasty retreat toward Wahesh and Stabem. The staggered Cando cast a Cure Light Wounds spell upon himself. It healed 7 nonlethal damage and allowed the fighter/bard to remain standing for the moment.

Ro-Mahn tied off a rope and lowered it down to the ground. Stabem moved toward the rope while keeping an eye out for danger. Wahesh drew his bow and readied for a target to appear. Barnacleez drew his wand and stepped back to the cover of the trees awaiting something to attack.

A flask of alchemist’s fire materialized in the air and dropped from the roof of one of the buildings at the top of the cliff (T13). It landed near the center of the patch of brown substance. The flask hit and burst into flames but was immediately extinguished as the substance expanded and grew along the stairs. The organic growth doubled in area and caused a chilling wave to wash over Cando, Ro-Mahn and Wahesh. The half-orc and the rogue each took 13 non-lethal damage while Wahesh only took 5 non-lethal damage.

Lady Emyralda pulled out her wand of Cure Light Wounds and healed Wahesh of 1 damage and 5 non-lethal damage. Cando retreated up the stairs, moving past Ro-Mahn to the top, to escape the unnatural cold.

The party dispatched the unconscious goblins and searched them for valuables. The monsters only carried standard goblin fare; small leather armor, light wooden shields, dogslicers and shortbows.

Wahesh moved to the stairs and inspected them for safety. As the fighter was about to start the climb, Ro-Mahn stepped up and took a look himself. Not sensing any dangers, the rogue took the lead. Wahesh followed with Cando falling in after him. Lady Emyralda, Stabem and Barnacleez followed behind.

The stairs were much more sturdy than they appeared and certainly less treacherous that scaling the cliff face. Unfortunately, both Wahesh and Ro-Mahn missed the cleverly hidden trap.  About halfway up the stairs, Ro-Mahn stepped down on a stair and felt it give. This triggered a mechanism that launched 3 pots from the top of one of the buildings. The pots were attached to ropes and swung out and arched back to smash against the cliff face. At this point the leaders saw it coming and were able to dodge out of the way. Ro-Mahn and Cando surged forward and Wahesh scrambled back forcing those behind to back-pedal. The surrounding area dropped about 30 degrees as the brown substance within was exposed to the air.

Ro-Mahn and Cando made it close enough to the entrance to examine it more closely.

A piecemeal steel and iron fence runs between two wooden buildings. A seven-foot-tall wooden gate constructed from fragments of tower shields blocks a crudely cut hole in the fence, while wooden stairs lead down the side of the rock face.
