Pike and Obregon begin searching the rooms. The bedroom has nothing of value, neither does the kitchen or either pantry. We return to the door across from the conference room which opens onto a hallway with a door on the east wall a ways down. Pike checks the door, finds it has a very nice lock but manages to pick it anyway. It opens onto a hallway with several doors on the right and a chair at the end of it. Pike begins checking for traps along the hallway but finds none to the first door. It is locked and he picks this one also. It is a bedroom with military style cleanliness though appears to have not been used in years. We find nothing of interest. We move to the next door and it is very similar and equally boring. The 3rd door holds the same while the chair in the hall holds no secrets. We check the remaining doors on the other hall with no new results. We head down the main hall again which opens onto a large chamber supported by 2 large pillars. There a several tables clustered together across from 2 large cold fireplaces. There is a door immediately inside as well as doors around the outer edge of the room. Huddled around the tables are 12 figures in robes staring at golden objects. Obregon realizes that they are skeletons but they are not moving as of yet. The golden objects are a belt buckle, bracelet and a small chalice. Pike checks the first door and hears something skittering inside. Gonoan steps forward and opens the door. This room is filled with animal cages; along one wall are zombie hawks and the other has skeletal war dogs. They open their own cages and move towards us. Beltin steps in and breathes acid on the hawks killing all but 2. Sanna walks up and destroys half the dogs with an electric shout. Pike shoots a hawk but it does not hurt it. Gonoan moves in and kills one of the hawks as Obregon shoots and kills the other. He then shoots and takes out one of the remaining dogs. The last 5 dogs then attack, one immediately falling to Gonoan’s axe. They all fail to hit but we hear the doors in the large room open and zombie’s begin coming out. At the same time the skeletons at the tables begin to stir. Nat steps forward and attempts to turn them, apparently his god is with him as all of the skeletons crumble to dust and all but 4 zombies collapse in to piles of goo. Pike shoots one of the remaining zombies for minor damage. Elaine hits the same one with magic missiles, killing it. She has finally lost her monster killing virginity. Gonoan kills the 2 remaining skeletal dogs with ease. Obregon shoots and kills 2 of the last 3 zombies. The lone zombie survivor begins to move our way. Pike puts a bolt in it and Obregon finishes it off. We begin searching the area and after a while Beltin spots a group of adventurers coming down the hallway. They hold up their arms and declare they do not want to disturb us. Beltin tells them to just move on then and they back off. We finish searching and find NOTHING! What a let down. We decide to head down a few levels to the cell near Atolomyr’s quarters. On the way, we realize we never explored the bottom of the chasm off the stairs where we saw the large creature on its back. Pike and Beltin step off and feather fall down while the others climb down with ropes and climbing gear. Beltin can see the creature, which vaguely resembles a large lizard, seems dead but its eyes are moving. Sanna believes it is a bulette, a magical creature that burrows underground, and is difficult to hurt. Pike moves to the exit of the room from where he can smell water and mud. Obregon finishes moving down and the creature begins to move, flipping itself over. It now appears to be undead. Beltin climbs the wall with spider climb, Gonoan drops down and Pike tumbles past the creature to be near him. Scary!
