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.

What do you do now? Looking to the edge of the trees, the party can see:

Lashed-together wooden poles form a makeshift staircase crudely bolted and fixed to the side of the stone shelf. The stairs lead upward to a platform that sits thirty feet above the ground.

The goblin that Wahesh, Cando and Barnacleez had previously attacked let out a yelp and retreated into the tree-top foliage, hiding from view. The monster that fell from its tree managed to stand up and barely kept its feet. The last goblin fired at Stabem but missed the halfling.

Unable to see his previous target, Washesh instead fired upon the woozy goblin. The arrow missed wide. Stabem finished his climb and stabbed the treed goblin with his rapier and dealing 5 damage. The monster screamed in pain and fell from the tree. The fall dealt 4 damage as the goblin bounced once and then lay unmoving. Ro-Mahn targeted the woozy goblin with his sling. The bullet hit the monster in the head dealing 2 damage and knocked it over.

Cando drew another dart and prepared to throw it once a target became visible. Seeing nothing, the half-orc ran forward and shook the tree where the goblin was hiding. The hiding goblin lost its balance and fell from its perch like a piece of ripened fruit. The fall dealt an additional 5 damage and rendered the monster unconscious. Barnacleez stood ready with his wand in hand but no further targets appeared. Lady Emyralda cast a Guidance spell on Ro-Mahn.

Correction from the previous round. Damage dealt by the goblins was incorrect. Should have been Wahesh 4, Cando 2 and Stabem 1. I inadvertently added 3 damage to each roll.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The goblins fired arrows at the party again. Wahesh was hit for 1 damage while Cando and Stabem were missed.

Wahesh returned fire and then took cover. The fighter’s arrow struck dealing 2 damage. Stabem began climbing the tree and managed to get 10 feet off the ground for his efforts. Ro-Mahn fired a bullet from his sling. The projectile hit the monster for 5 damage. The goblin lost its balance and fell from its perch and landed with a thud at the base of the tree. It suffered 1 more damage leaving it prone and staggered. 

Cando heaved another dart but missed his target. Barnacleez fired his wand at the goblin attacked by Wahesh. The Magic Missile hit the monster for 3 damage. It screamed in pain but managed to remain in the tree. Lady Emyralda moved closer to Stabem and channeled positive energy which healed the wounded party members of 4 damage each.
