Level 1 (new character)
Level 2 (forcibly recruited)
After some discussion it was decided they should attack. The party doggedly entered the quarry and entered into the fray once more!
This time the spiders were more spread out across the quarry floor, consequently 3 of them got into melee range with the the party quite quickly.
Berta took point here and bore the brunt of the first attacks. She stood her ground but despite her dwarvish resilience was soon at risk falling prey to the giant spiders' venomous poison.
Alton and then Tiny Tracy joined the clash.
Cautiously the party proceeded along the tunnel until it opened up into a largish web filled cavern.
The party carefully scrutinised the cave and found 3 spots where the ground looked strange, the could not determine what was strange about it.
A discussion was held and it was decided that they would set fire to the webbing to clear the area. This was done and they retreated away from the risk of choking and blinding smoke, electing to take a long break and come back later.
The next morning they returned to an acrid stink that filled the air. It wasn't enough to hinder them and they searched the cave. The 3 spots that they were suspicious of were actually depressions in the cave floor, they surmised that these may have contained 'trapdoor spiders'. Other than the remains of the fire, there was nothing else in this room.
The party checked this room. Disturbingly, they found numerous heavily webbed corpses hanging in the webs here, of woodland animals and the occasional goblin. There was little else to be found here, so the party pressed on.
