In this episode, the group…
- Investigate the Happy Beggar and find a secret tunnel
- Get attacked by Shadowhunter bats.
The party go on down into the kitchen to find Ausma busy making more bad tea and porridge. The ex-Paladin is helpful and says they can have a look around as long as they don’t get in the way. They open a door to the cellar but are faced with a tunnel colapse blocking their way. Burnt notices tracks heading towards the blockage and further investigation shows that the rubble pile has been arranged by hand long ago, creating a hidden access. The secret door is a carefully balanced stone slab. When pushed, it swivels open to reveal a narrow passage wide enough only for Medium or smaller creatures. The passage slopes sharply downward at the end..
This natural stone cavern is cut in half by a cliff, and the eastern side descends into darkness. Stalagmites and stalactites obscure your view, and barely visible to the far southeast is an archway of finished stone that opens up to the south.
The cliff descends 20 feet to the floor of the cavern’s eastern side. However, as you look down, you can see that the rough cliff wall is dotted by patches of toadstool-shaped fungus.
The party identify the fungus as spore producing but not which one.
A flurry of movement erupts from the shadows of the ceiling. Four enormous bats shriek as they drop toward you, their bladed tails slashing the air.
As the party’s light enters the room, all but Bramble, are surprised by four Shadowhunter bats that attack the party.
The battle rages with the bats swooping in, attacking, then retreating to the safety of the stalactites on the ceiling. The group continue to fight them at range eventually pinning one into melee. They finish the battle but one escapes in a tunnel to the far side of the cavern.
Fade to black until next time…..
