Being the first to respond, Fergus enters the room and attacks the nearest beetle with a ferocious strike. The blow from his rapier missed. The rear beetle stepped forward and attempted to bite the cleric but missed.
Ronan moved into the room to the other side of Jerry. The monster that attacked Fergus also attacked the magus as he went by. The beetle was no more successful that before and missed him. The magus swung his scimitar with both hands and struck a mighty blow dealing 23 damage. The bug exploded and showered Ronan’s companions with slime, phosphorescent fluid and pieces of carapace.
Noc entered the room and stepped into the space of the recently demolished bug. The monk attacked the one that Fergus was fighting but missed with his fist. Jerry tumbled past Noc and the beetles to position himself in the corner. The ninja swung his katana at the beetle engaged with the cleric and the monk. The blow landed and dealt 5 damage which was enough to kill the monster.
Korg entered the room and thought about casting Acid Splash but his view was blocked from behind his friends so the attacked with his longspear instead. The polearm struck home dealing 5 damage which also killed the monster.
A search of the room revealed small bundle of four half-buried trade agreements and a small sack buried amid the rubble. The trade agreements all are written in Kelish. The sack contained 200 silver pieces and a set of magic bronze bracers.

Getting Ready for the Next Scenario

As this scenario is winding down, I just wanted to check that everyone is good with proceeding to First Steps part 3 and plans to play the same character. I figure that I can do some prep work for the next scenario while we are working through the last couple of encounters (pre-formating some posts, maps, etc.).

We really are almost done. You have enough encounters to get the XP and have completed the tasks required to earn PP. This current fight gets you the rest of the GP and items on the chronicle. After that there are a couple more encounters, if you want to play them, and conclusions with the various Venture Captains. I can see this getting wrapped up in 2 weeks if we get posts from everyone more than once a week.

We may get a new player when we start the next scenario. Daren has expressed some interest. I will work that off line and let you know when we start.

Jerry cautiously stepped into the room to examine its contents. The ninja quickly spotted three house cat sized, dull brown color beetles brightened by two glowing green-yellow spots on their carapaces among the rubbish. The vermin stirred to life and eyed the ninja hungrily.

Unable to identify the magic pearl, the party moved on.
Having come back to the entrance, the party decided to further investigate some areas that they had previously skipped. They traveled again through archives and the lair of the blindheim to reach a door which was previously left unexplored.
Jerry checked the door for a lock and traps but did not find either. As it turned out the door was stuck fast. Jerry and Noc both tied to open it and failed. Ronan stepped up and shouldered it open easily.
Rubbish and black mold choke the far end of the chamber. The slightest movement kicks up dust and spores, choking the stagnant and already foul-smelling air.

After the spider is dead, it is fairly easy to clear the webs enough to enter the room.
As search of the room revealed that next to the remains of one of the two dead kobolds, wrapped in the webbing, was a small purse containing; 30 gp and a pearl. When Fergus cast Detect Magic, the pearl radiated a strong aura of transmutation magic.

The spider again tried to bite Noc but missed. Fergus stepped to the side and called ahead to announce that the way was clear. Noc attacked the spider with his kama. The blow landed and dealt 6 damage. The monk attempted to tumble backward and up the stairs past Jerry but was less graceful than planned. The spider again attempted to bite the dwarf. This time the monster’s attack succeeded but only dealt 1 damage as the monk resisted the effects of the poison.
Jerry moved forward and tumbled through the spider and its web to successfully enter the room beyond. The ninja attacked the giant vermin but missed with his katana. Ronan moved forward and attacked with his scimitar. The blow from the magus hit because of the flanking provided by Jerry. The weapon dealt 9 damage to the spider. Korg stepped forward and cast an Acid Splash targeted upon the spider. The attack was a long shot but the spell hit the target and dealt 2 damage which was enough to defeat the monster.

Fergus cast Guidance on Jerry while Ronan cast Detect Magic. The magus tried to look around the others but could not see in the room from where he stood.
Noc tried to push aside the webs to investigate the room further. The sticky strands proved more resistant than anticipated and blocked the monk’s ability to move forward. His action did reveal that the room was inhabited as a giant spider can to investigate the disturbance. The man-sized vermin attacked the monk but missed with its bite.

Jerry dusted himself off after his jump and fall. At the bottom of the well he found the remains of a man dressed in the style of a servant. The ninja bagged up the remains for a proper burial outside of the keep. Finding nothing of value or anything hidden, Jerry climbed out of the pit. Banjo and Korg stayed away from the well while Ronan and Noc assisted Jerry out of the well.
Wanting to leave the howling behind, Jerry headed toward the other exit and examined the door. He did not find anything suspicious. The ninja opened the door to reveal a short hallway and a set of stairs which descended. The stairs exited into a larger room. Webs cover the entry into the room. Jerry allows Noc to take the lead.
This long, narrow room is choked with webbing. Within the webs are a number of what appear to be small, dead humanoids with dark, scaled skin, each wrapped in a cocoon of sticky webbing.
