Session Eleven Log
More Spiders! Kill them with fire!
Level 1 (new character)
Level 2 (forcibly recruited)
The next day at noon the party arrived back at the quarry; a quick scout ahead revealed that the quarry had once again been infested with giant spiders.
After some discussion it was decided they should attack. The party doggedly entered the quarry and entered into the fray once more!
Alton and then Tiny Tracy joined the clash.
But it was too little too late and Berta was taken down. Then one-by-one Alton and then Tracey were also laid low by spider-venom.
Eventually Clint had to charge into the fray and with a useful cleric spell stabilize the wounds of all 3.
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.
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 pressed on to the first exit on the left. This was another corridor that opened into another cavern. The party had noticed that the fire had not reached as far as the room and in the bottleneck of the corridor, a firebreak had been created by clearing the webbing.
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.
The party entered another tunnel, the party discovered that the webbing became thinner and eventually disappeared.
The party were now in a large normal looking cave.
Once again, the party looked around and spotted a earthy looking mound, which in a rocky area, seemed to stick out like a sore thumb.
