After finally getting in some sleep we headed back off to try and find our friends. I scouted ahead as usual and heard some voices. I tried to lure them with some fake sounds but apparently a cat was a bad idea. One of them took off down the hallway so I thought I would sneak up on the other one. Apparently though, that one could not only see invisibility but could also see in the dark like myself. Luckily, Rami was able to shoot her to death just before a bunch of others showed up. Luckily for us, they showed up together as a unit of strength, which also meant a unit of fiery death once the fireball hit them like a brick wall. We finished those guys off pretty quickly and continued down the hallway, me scouting ahead again as usual. I waited behind another corner and heard someone up ahead again, only this time they were asking if everything was ok. I bluffed my way through telling them yes but they didn’t seem wholly convinced so I waited until they rounded the corner to check to gut him from stem to stern and kept it quiet. We did some looking around and found some neat treasure. Nothing I needed but cool nonetheless. Then we came to a big room. We could hear voices coming from above us but nobody else seemed to be able to figure out what they were saying other than me since I seem to be the only one who learned the giant dialect. I spoke with the ones I was able to coax down and convinced them we weren’t there to hurt them but we were just looking for some friends. They were a little skittish for hat were apparently cave trolls or cave giants or something. Of course, hearing that there could possibly be hundreds of them hiding in the high ceiling we couldn’t see was also a big determining factor. I assured them we would speak to the sahaugin about coming in and raiding them any more whilst also taking care of some pirate who stole their lair from them named Rogar or something. Seems like a win-win situation for us. The trolls sent some scouts ahead of us to clear the way of the plants that would have attacked us. We made our way through to what seemed to be like a main area of some sort but the trolls called it the scorpion den or something and they weren’t kidding! Huge fiendish looking scorpions came at us as soon as we entered. I also noticed some archers up on some ledges as well. Most of us set off to take care of the scorpions while Rami dealt with the archers since they were up out of our reach currently. It didn’t take us too long to take care of the scorpions and they fell away quickly. Those archers though were some serious business Even Rami was having trouble hitting them. Suhrlock was able to wall of ice one of them though to block them off from shooting us because they had some serious power behind those arrows. They hurt like hell. Rami was finally able to finish off one of them which left one more ot deal with. Somehow, Joka climbed on top of the wall of ice and tried to snag the other archer but couldn’t seem to get a handle. and the ledges were too small for more than 1 person so if I couldn’t get up to her, I would bring her down to me…so I started hacking at the platform. Apparently that was her queue to try and take off so that’s what she did. She tried to run. Or rather, fly. Only we were faster since she had to take the time to cast a spell to fly away and with use under the influence of a Haste spell, her speed was no match for ours and we caught her and ended her quickly. They did have some nice bows though and both Rami and Shenora got them. I also got some of the nicer bracers like Rami has so I’m good with that. We also got some stuff that boosted our mental and physical prowess, although it seemed they were different for each person. Then the oddest thing happened…some old crone with a mobile shop showed up in the middle of the cavern. I mean, I’m not gong to looka gift horse in the mouth when it affords the opportunity to sell loot and buy new stuff to help with the journey. I bought a few new things from her that I’m sure will help with the retrieval of our friends and then dealing with that asshole Plugg once we get back to the ship.
