The adventurers investigated claims of missing animals that led to a local cave. Following a brief discussion on whether to talk to the goblin guards at the cave entrance, the party chose to slaughter them in rapid efficiency. Deeper in the cave, their goblin compatriots were quick to strike back. The following scuffle involved Bolt dragging a goblin through an acid puddle and Meizaphir causing another to self-detonate. Eventually the goblins were quickly dispatched, but with two of our heroes greatly wounded. Among the bodies were found a magic wand and a purple, pearlescent potion. After some inspection, Meizaphir determined the potion was not harmful, but didn't learn anything else.
After the melee, they retreated to the forest to heal. While resting, a new pack of goblins arrived and took in the scene of carnage. They quickly cleaned up and buried the bodies of their fallen brethren, and then sent one of their number off into the distance.
Something curious that Meiziphar noticed was the use of the word union by the goblins, spoken in Common.
After the goblins disappeared into the cave once more, the adventurers snuck in after them. The goblins were nowhere to be found, but in the room that still reeked of death, Tharok found an unpleasant surprise: the rock floor was made of thin air! As he fell to the bottom of the trapped pit, his Goliath reflexes snapped into action and he shattered the poison spikes waiting to impale him. The party quickly rescued him, and then leapt over the treacherous ground.
Egads! A 7-foot wolf-beast! And in the distance, two shadowy figures escaped. Syllar said his prayers as the claws descended upon him, sidestepping the terrible pain neatly. Tharok’s time had come, and he smote the beast terrifically. Blow after blow rained on the wolf beast, but it was a hardened creature, and could take far more than he could give. At last, the beast was slain.
Upon inspection of the room and fallen foe, Tharok found that the beast was missing some important family jewels, Meiziphar discovered and activated an illusion pentagram; revealing a shortcut to the cave entrance, and Syllar found three crates of white linen robes.
