Aion, Reddur, and Rori continued to explore the goblin’s lair with zombie Riell following along. Reddur moved up a long hallway and spotted a tripwire, which the group carefully avoided. They moved into a filthy chamber with crude pallets for sleeping and heaps of trash. Reddur crept further into the room and then dodged a sudden javelin attack. The PCs quickly mowed down four goblins and searched the room for treasure, of which they found little. Reddur removed their ears and added them to his collection.
Reddur led the group further up the hallway where they found a large stone dwarven head. A door on the right opened into a room with a basin with water pouring out of the mouth of a dwarven face carved into the wall. As he moved into the room for a closer look, a crossbow bolt grazed Reddur’s side. Aion rushed in and chopped the goblin ambusher down with a single swing of his axe. Moving along cautiously, Reddur was again surprised by another goblin sneak attack. Suddenly yet another goblin emerged at the end of the hall and cast Scorching Ray on Reddur, nearly burning him to a crisp.
Rori moved up to help Reddur, putting them both in prime position for another sneak attack. A fourth goblin leaped around a corner and cast Burning Hands on them, scorching Rori and dropping Reddur. Meanwhile, Aion moved through a series of doors and emerged behind the goblin that had cast Scorching Ray on Reddur. Aion’s axe cleaved through the goblin before he knew what happened. The battle in the hallway continued with Aion throwing axes as Rori tried to dodge attacks and heal Reddur. Rori dodged a Scorching Ray spell and then leveled the sword-wielding goblin with his staff. Aion chased after the spellslinger through another series of doors.
In the last room they found a bubbling cauldron, but no goblin. Reddur moved in and swung his bow around, which bounced off of something to his left. The invisible goblin suddenly became visible again as he attacked Reddur with a shortspear. A few axe swings and arrows later, that goblin finally lay dead too.
