Level 2 (forcibly recruited)
The second day was more eventful.
During the last leg of their journey, the party had to turn east and climb the foothills back into the Edion mountains. Unfortunately for them, a small pack of worgs had caught their scent and the party did not spot loping over a low hill towards them.
When the party did gather their wits, it was almost too late! The worgs were too fast and without hesitation charged the party from the rear.
However the party were quite depleted, after reviving their fallen comrades they felt the need for a rest. They pressed on towards the quarry. The party knew that close to the mine were some abandoned and dilapidated old buildings that would provide some shelter and protection.
They arrived without any trouble and took a short rest.
Towards the end of the rest the most perceptive party members heard the crunch of gravel and rock beneath the skittering of many feet...
The party ascertained it was 7 giant spiders advancing towards.
A quick decision was made and they grabbed their weapons and bundled out of the old buildings.The 2 fighters, barbarian and monk formed up loose frontline with the magic-user and cleric 60 foot back, ready to hurl ranged spell attacks.
Combat ensued - and it did not go well for the players.
When the 6 giant spiders advanced, they were in 2 small groups. The smaller group of 2 spiders moved forward and webbed Alton and Turwin. Meanwhile the larger group of 4 moved into melee range with the frontline.
