This report will include Three parts. The recounting of the battle, the interrogation of the prisoners, and the likely options for next session.
Part the First: The party was guided to the Dragon door on the Eastern side of the seven pillared hall and Rendil told them to follow the signs left by the dwarven prospectors that clearly showed how to get to the The Chamber of Eyes. Nemanock went in first through the partially open door and snuck around noting the ledge on the far side of the room and the double doors on the right, behind which he could here goblin voices, although at this time he did not try to discern what they were saying.
They decided to climb the ledge and sneak in through the back way. This worked and they surprised the goblin and hobgoblin guards and their bugbear chieftain. A pitched battle ensued but the end was never really in question of rour intrepid adventurers as they faced numerous foes and dispatched of them with singular dispatch. Darius did his part by standing in the middle surrounded by many and taking much damage, meanwhile Bearn struck where he wuilled and whittled the many down as Nemanock tried a new tactic of actually hitting his targets and noted his effectiveness increased muchly. Possibly inspired by this new technique, Thunefir also began hitting things, many critically, with telling effect. Most remarkably, Aponym pulled a fireball out of his #@$ and toasted a wave of reinforcements that left them easy pickings for Bearn who was reinforced by “Thunefir’s Silver Hammer.”
“Boom Boom Thunefir’s silver hammer came down upon their head”
“Boom Boom Thunefir’s silver hammer made sure that they were dead”
The Bloodreaver’s leader and his surviving retinue beat a hasty retreat, but not before their dire wolf was also dispatched by Bearn. In the midst of the fray, two Duergar were seen making a hesty escape and nemanock and Charrak went to guard the route lest anymore try to escape. Sure enough, two human rabble were also trying to get out and they were captured and revealed some valuable info.
Part the Second: Advanced questioning techniques revealed that the Duergar were the cheif trading partners in the slavering and that they relied heavily on the bloodreavers for their stock. They also said that this raid showed the weakness of Krand, the bloodreaver’s leader and that he will no longer have any business in the seven pillared hall and that the Deurgar will now have to go elsewhere or do with out until they can negotiate with some new slavers. They found a note regarding a recent sale of slaves and it was written by Murkelmor(?) describing the slave transaction, though not where they were taken.
p. When they talk to Windy he tells them that the slavers sold his crew a couple of days ago, along with some others from Winterhaven and Arabel and he knows not where they took them, but he begs the party to recover them. He would help but he had urgent business with Lord Sterling and now that his crew’s salvation is in better hands then his own, he must hasten off to Arabel.
p. Part the Third: The party must now decide how it will proceed. How to confront the Duergar and find where the slaves were taken and rescue them. There is still this business with Paldemar, the renegade mage that the Mages of Saruun are looking for, as well. The Deepgem dwarves have mentioned a pet boar that is missing, and its recovery would surely cement ties to them. Perhaps it would be helpful to enlist the ais of a good guide while travelling further into the Labrynth, as Rendil assured you that there won’t be handy dwarven runes guiding their paths everywhere they need to go. The most highly reccomened guide is Terrlen Darkseeker. Although he has no love of the Purple Dragons or their politics, he seems a decent enough fellow otherwise, and Darius feels there is hope.
