We move down on to the landing and the portcullis does not fall. Beltin sticks his head through the illusion and sees a narrow room with 2 old corpses. The bodies have been here for several weeks and have nothing of value. It seems that someone left them here and planned to come back to get them but never did. There are no other exits from this room, even using the secret door wand. We move down some more flights and on the 3rd landing we find another illusionary wall. Beltin sticks his head through again and suddenly we hear the sound of portcullises dropping, one immediately behind us and the other back upstairs. Beltin sees a line of armored trolls behind the illusion. He spits acid at them, hitting the first 6. The lead troll then hits Beltin with a claw. Gonoan leans in and puts his axe into the front one. Pike sets up to take a shot while Beltin hits the front troll with his morning star and then steps back. Obregon sends 2 arrows through the illusion and manages to kill the first one. The trolls move the body back and the next one steps up and hits Gonoan. Sanna casts a lightning bolt through the illusion as Pike takes a shot through as well. Beltin then breathes acid down the hall again while Obregon takes several shots. A troll steps through the illusion and hits Beltin. Sanna casts another lightning bolt. Gonoan chops and fells the one in front. We hear them moving but none appear. Sanna moves up and casts yet another lightning bolt. Gonoan charges in, nimbly dodging a claw, and kills another one. Beltin does the same taking down another. Obregon sends more arrows through the illusion. The last troll steps up and hits Beltin once. Sanna runs up, gives Beltin a superior smirk, swings at it and whiffs. Beltin gives her a withering look, kills it and yells “booyah” in her face. They are each wearing large size chain mail which we decide to leave for now. There is another illusionary wall a ways back and then the corridor dead ends. We move down another level, then another until we find an additional illusionary wall at the 5th level. Beltin looks through again, seeing a 20’ alcove. Sanna checks it for secret doors and finds one at the rear through which we find the trolls lair. We recover 5 fire opals in a velvet lined wooden case(1000gp each), 470 gp, 290 pp, shield 2M, chain mail +1of dwarven makeM. We pack it up and head to the sixth landing, then the 7th where Pike finds a gas trap that appears to have not been reset in a long time. On the wall, is scrawled some writing in an old version of common, basically bragging. On the 7th level we find a secret door. Pike checks it out and hears sounds like something is being moved around behind the door. We are unable to find a way to open it; Pike surmises it is bolted on the inside and can’t be opened from this side. Pike uses his Knock spell on it and it moves back and opens. There is a 20’ wide passageway behind it with a large bulbous creature with multiple eyestalks floating in the air a short way down. Pike and Obregon are stunned by its gaze while Beltin spits acid at it. Sanna casts flame strike on it, killing it outright. Around it is treasure in piles containing 2000 gp, assorted treasure worth 19360 gp, scroll of tongues7, cure critical wounds7, scrying9, and summon natures ally III5, wand of mirror image 3 w/13 charges. Beltin and Gonoan move down to the end of the corridor where a large framed object has been forced in to place, blocking further movement. How do we get this out of the way?
