Gouger appears in the doorway hanging from a harness with just his head, torso and one arm. Beltin hits him with a line of acid, Sanna with burning hands (which kills the last kobold), Pike and Obregon with arrows. He begins swinging at Gonoan who is taunting him, doing some damage. He also gets a hit in on Sanna, disrupting her spell. Between Sanna’s fire attacks, Beltin’s acid and Gonoan’s jumping attacks, he is taken out. Beltin continues to breathe acid until his corpse is destroyed. Pike searches the room and finds broach, ring, hide armor and amulet as well as a trap door in the floor. We search the bodies and find nothing of value. Pike searches the trap door for traps and finds none. He opens the door and sees a 20’ shaft. Beltin spider climbs down and discovers a short tunnel that ends in 2 burnished brass doors. The group climbs down, Pike checks for traps and listens with no results. He pushes the door open with his sword and the light dims to normal and butterflies burst from the door. The room’s walls, ceiling and floor are covered with impaled corpses. There is a large grate in the floor connected to 2 winches. The grate opens to a room 60’below. We search the bodies and walls and find nothing.
We decide to head back and deal with the guillotine and shadow. The preceding room’s floor begins to undulate as we cross it. The door is unchained though we chained it when we left it the last time. We enter and attack the guillotine. The shadow comes out of the wall and attacks Bellamin. The guillotine attacks Gonoan. Bellamin attempts greater turning and fails. The guillotine is defeated quickly. We turn our attention to the shadow. Pike attempts to shoot it and the bolt passes through it with no effect. Bellamin fails to turn it a second time. We end after the shadow attempts to hit Bellamin again and fails.

Traded magical dwarven axe for +1morningstar for Beltin. Meet Batan the weapon seller. Gonoan and Sanna go to the shanty area and look for Rolph the bandit healer. No luck. Beltin and Pike collect the carts and laborers from St Cuthbert. They pay an urchin, Lumi, to fetch Bellamin. The group regathers and heads to the ruins. They clear the rubble from around the elevators, have the laborers lower them down and pack up the trade goods. We decide to go below the pillbox and try to find the rest of the trade goods. The laborers will wait as long as they can and still get back to Greyhawk before night. Pike picks the lock on the door to the hallway with the defaced shrine antechamber. As we pass through the burnt room, we all start to exude smells: Beltin urine, Sanna manure, Gonoan sulphur, Bellamin earthy, Pike stale fetid smell. We discover a kobold in the pill box. Have a hard time hitting the kobold, Sanna blasts it with a magic missile and kills it. Loot:hand crossbow, sling, spear. Head through the trap door and down a rusty ladder into a damp tunnel with algae and mushrooms. It leads to another ladder going up. Pike heads toward the ladder and one of the mushrooms starts to shriek. We pound it quiet. Pike climbs the ladder and hears the sound of multiple creatures above. Gonoan goes up and enters the room. It is a large room with iron bars across it and there are 4 kobolds(2 are on wolves) and an ogre. In the far corner there is a raised platform with gruesome doors on it. We engage them through the bars. The wolves attack Gonoan and the ogre attacks Beltin. The Kobolds flip a table for cover and begin to fire hand crossbows at Beltin because as they say in Draconic “We know what you are, no melee!” Gonoan kills one of the wolves, Beltin, Pike and Sanna kill the ogre. We rush the table, Gonoan knocks them back and we make short work of the first 3. We attempt to subdue the last kobold and he runs to the doors and calls Gouger.

Attacked the undead dwarf. The dwarfs name is Rathe Blackstone and he threatens to turn us into ghouls.

Pike searched the throne and found nothing. Found a door in the rear corner which leads to a damaged sarcophagus. Small iron coffer, Pike opens and finds 155 gp of PP, gems and tools. Go back to the elevator room and utilizing Beltin’s spider climb and knotted rope, successfully get everyone up the shaft to the upper level. Paid the dwarves 3 PP on exit. We return to Greyhawk. Each get 20 gp (Bellamin 10). Beltin and Bellamin head to the church of Pelor to check on healing his disease. Tried to check at St Cuthbert. Spoke with Eritai and shared all of our experiences. Offered to refund the price of the cure for proof of destroyed undead. Beltin borrows the money from Gonoan and gets the cure. Stayed in town 2 more days, healed up and collected laborers and wagons for collecting the stolen goods. Sold mundane goods for 45 gp each (20 for Bellamin). Meet with priests of Boccob to sell the text, they low ball us. We try to play them off WeeJas but they offer to buy us drinks and share information. We take them through the dungeon as if we were just adventurers. We exchange pointed barbs and learn nothing of value. They leave.
