Sanna and Beltin attempt to crank the elevator down but fail to move it. Obregon moves to help. The orcs manage to move up again. Gonoan joins us at the crank while Pike attempts to climb the elevator support. We fail to move them down again and they manage to finish moving up and escape. We crank it back down and Beltin destroys it with acid. We move back down via the other elevator where Natauru informs us that he heard something in the other room a minute ago. We arrange ourselves at both doors and enter together. The room is empty except for the worg bodies. Obregon can tell that something large slithered to the pool from the south and then out the northern door, dragging the master of hounds. We move to the door and Pike manages to pick the complex locking mechanism. The doors open onto a room with a large chasm bisecting it. There is a wooden bridge crossing the chasm which leads to another room lit partially by flickering torches. There is a bell ringing in the deep end of the chasm. Gonoan sees 2 gargoyles flying toward us from that direction. Obregon puts 3 arrows in to one of them as Beltin moves towards them. They fly past us and in to the other room which ends at a dais containing a rusty skeletal statue laying on its side. There is a door to the north. Sanna hits each with a scorching ray and Gonoan moves towards them. When he gets close he discovers that they are undead and announces as much. Obregon puts an arrow between the wings of the one he hit originally, slaying it. For good measure, he puts one in the other as well. Beltin moves up to them. The remaining gargoyle knicks Gonoan but gets knicked in return by Sanna. Pike hits it with a bolt. Gonoan hits it with his greataxe. All of a sudden, 2 flying swords of force move out of the a crack in the wall and begin to attack the bridge causing it to crumble in to the chasm. Then a door located in an unnoticed alcove near the dais opens revealing a squat humanoid with blubbery flesh and a mouth full of small sharp teeth. Obregon finishes off the gargoyle. Beltin sees there are 3 creatures and 2 priests in the other room. He moves to block the door. Pike jumps the chasm and takes a shot at the creature in the doorway but it fails to penetrate. Sanna casts an electric sphere in the room via a crack in the wall. One of the dretchs farts a stinking cloud but we manage to resist the noxious fumes. The acolytes move out of the cloud and recall their magical swords. Beltin spits acid killing 2 of the dretchs and one acolyte. Sanna throws an electric ball in to the room hurting the acolyte and doing no damage to the dretch. The remaining dretch begins summoning another while the acolyte goes invisible. Pike moves around behind the dretch and Beltin moves up and hits it. Gonoan moves adjacent and kills it in one blow. The acolyte attacks Gonoan with the spiritual sword and heals himself. Beltin charges him and gets in a good hit. Pike moves around behind him skewering him in the kidneys, dropping him. We take a moment to look around and find ourselves in a large room with cracks along the floor and walls. There is an altar on the far end covered with black wax and bones. There is a gold bowl with black candles beside it and a dagger inside. There is a crude painting of a screaming white skull above it. We loot the bodies and find splint mail, MW greatsword, silver holy symbol, scrollM, potion bottleM and vestments on each acolyte. How do we regroup?
