We begin heading down the passage to the left again. Gonoan feels we are in a very unstable area and should not go any further. We turn around and choose to continue down the original tunnel.
This stays pretty straight for quite a ways and Gonoan feels we are over 150’ down and that we are on a path towards the tower of magic. Obregon determines that it has been at least 25 years since anyone has traversed this area. We decide to stick it out and see where we come out. After a short ways we come across a T junction with a hall leading straight towards the tower of power and one directly away from it; we continue towards the tower of magic. Pike moves out in front to scout ahead with Nat. The tunnel becomes cavernous and opens into a large cavern where Pike smells a stench of waste. They move on and hear some movement from above. They immediately hide and 4 trolls drop down from a crevice in the ceiling. The rest of the party hears the movement and begins to head down the hall at a run, fearing the worst for Pike and Nat. Pike decides to attack the nearest troll from hiding, planting a bolt in its chest. One charges Beltin, hitting him with a claw. Another troll moves up and attacks Gonoan, hitting with a claw as well. Gonoan hits the front one twice with his axe. Nat moves away while Beltin hits 3 of them with acid breath. Sanna casts a lightning ball on them; we can smell their hair burning and 2 of them fall. Obregon plants 2 arrows in one and smacks it with an alchemist arrow. We can see a couple of their wounds close and they run away, pulling themselves into the crevice. Beltin spider climbs up the wall and along the ceiling to the crevice and enters. The rest of the party runs up underneath. Beltin sees another adult troll and several young in addition to the 2 who ran away. Gonoan tosses up a grappling hook that the rest of us use to begin climbing. 2 of the troll moms move between us and the young, who move towards a hole at the back while the other who has burst in to flame, stops, drops and rolls. Gonoan climbs up while Beltin moves forward and hits 2 with acid. Sanna climbs up and tosses another lightning ball, killing 2. Obregon moves up and kills the last one with 2 arrows. Pike climbs up and immediately finds a chest in an alcove and opens it revealing 12 potions. He searches it further and finds nothing else. A quick look around reveals only trolls sleeping areas. We regroup and move back on to the path. After a while, we reach a door with purple smoke coming out around it. Sanna taps her magely knowledge and infers that this is the same as up above. Sanna attempts to touch his Zagyg’s key to the door but cannot even get all the way up to it. Natauru brings up the dungeon master as someone who can overcome Grandfather Magic’s spell but does not actually want to use him. We head back to the T junction and head north. After 100’, it turns east. Another 100’, it turns south. At 200’ the tunnel widens to 15’ from 10’. Obregon notices evidence of Vroks and what was likely a battle with them. After we spend a couple of hours walking, we come upon a set of huge iron double doors with no handles or hinges. Elaine casts detect magic and it detects as difficult to read. Pike searches for a means of opening but finds none so casts knock at it and it swings open. The door is 3’ thick and opens on a massive chamber with a pool of murky water with steps on either side of the room to a bridge 20’ high and a 50’ high ceiling. The murk in the water draws together into a large muddy creature that peers menacingly at us…
