Level 1 (forcibly recruited)
The party scouted the quarry and found that there were 5 spiders.
The quarry had been repopulated, although with less spiders this time.The party entered the quarry and the spiders scuttled across the quarry floor to attack.
It took the giant spiders 3 round to reach the party at the other end of the quarry. The party took the opportunity to loosed a few volleys of ranged attack at the spiders. They managed to kill one spider before they got closer.
When the spiders closed to within 30 feet, they launched their ranged webbing attack: This was very effective as both the front line fighters (Berta and Tracey) were webbed up and restrained.
Berta managed to break free of her webbing (although her action for the round was consumed), Tracey was not so lucky. He took a hit whilst in the webbing. A round later, she breaks free and the tide of the battle slowly turns in their favour, eventually the spiders are eradicated.
The parry then re-entered the caves. In the intervening week, webbing had returned to the caves - although not so thicky or extensively.
The party followed the tunnel until it entered the cave with 3 other exits and which had previously contained 3 trapdoor traps. Now there were just 3 giant spiders. The spiders attacked the intruders into their caves.
Fighting is harsh and Tracey is knocked unconscious, but the party is victorious.
After some discussion, the party retreat to a defensive spot they found last session and took a short break.
During this time, the party spotted a pair of giant spiders exiting the caves and scuttling off west out of the quarry and presumably down the path. This left the party confused and suspicious, suspicious that the giant spiders were calling reinforcements.
Anyway, after their short rest the party returned to the cave.
This cave has 3 other exits: In the previous session, the party had taken the 1st exit on the left and usually they follow the 'always left' philosophy. But on this occasion they decided to go right!
This led into a dead-end and the now slightly burnt skeletal remains of a man. Amongst the remains was a large number of amount of money and the ashy remains of something once made of paper...
The party looted the remains, returned to the previous cave and went through to the final exit. They encountered a T-junction and took the left exit to the west.
They entered a cavern they had not encountered. Looking into the area they spotted that both the east and west walls had areas that were smooth and glistening, almost appearing wet.
Shamos and Alton advanced to the western wall to investigate. As they drew close, suddenly tentacles whipped out and attacked!
The grey masses on both walls dropped to the floor and coalesced into 2 pairs of oozes. Shamos wondered on why he had decided to position himself in melee range of something potentially (and ultimately was) dangerous.
