The battle continues with the battle against the Lich, Death Knight and _Dread Warriors of Sass Tam.
Sir Axialrod starts off by moving next to the Lich and hitting him three times. Azim moves to the other side of the Death Knight and smashes him in the nose, stunning him. The attacks another three times. Errich casts Green Flame Blade then stabs the Death Knight and again with his off hand. Ulfgrim pauses casts Spiritual Guardians but the Lich casts Counter Spell, Sir Axialrod hits him. The Death Knight acts stunned. The Lich puts his arms up to surrender. Seakul moves behind the Lich and puts his sword to its throat. Jareath just shoots the Lich killing it. Doing and Obi-wan Kanobi. The second shot hits the Death Knight.
Sir Axialrod stomps on the Lich’s robe, then kills the Death Knight by lopping off its head. Azim moves to attack a Warriors of Sass Tam near Ulfgrim and hits him three times. Errich moves behind that Warriors of Sass Tam and kills it with Green Flame Blade. Ulfgrim moves behind a Warriors of Sass Tam to attack it also hitting with Green Flame Blade which arcs hitting the Warriors of Sass Tam next to his target. Both swing ineffectively at Ulfgrim in return. Seakul moves to assist Ulfgrim, hitting twice. Jareath shoots twice more, both hitting. Sir Axialrod removes yet another head. Axim searches the corpse and finds a set of keys and a Glyph key (Abysal gate and Temple of Anguish), and some robes. Errich searches the headless corpse of the Death Knight, a smoking sword, a set of armour without a helmet. Ulfgrim swings again, with more Green Flame Blade killing another Warriors of Sass Tam, the last Warriors of Sass Tam is killed.
The room is then searched, a magical long sword, and a drawer (abjuration magic) of a desk and something in the drawer (evocation magic). Thanks Jareath. As Errich cannot open it. Sir Axialrod cannot break open the lock. Jareath sings a little ditty allowing Sir Axialrod to open the drawer. Inside is a Golden Coffer (looking like a sleeping dragon) and a black box. The magic is emanating from both containers. Errich opens the box seeing some paper, which he reads then explodes. Destroying the box and the runes. Inside the golden box is 200pp and magical river rock. The room is searched, nothing except a note begging for forgiveness from Sass Tam.
The continuing searching the Abysal Zones, a large 80’ hex shaped room with six magical circles light this once grand eating chamber, as the doors open screaming can be heard, thee circles filled with demons (Quazits, a Vrock, a Hezrou and some little Manes demons). Six Wight with a Warriors of Sass Tam standing guard. More combat. Sir Axialrod moves into the room and prepares to attack. The Wight then attack (one is killed by Sir Axialrod) the others move up. Seakul charges at the Warriors of Sass Tam., Errich moves behind and casts Green Flame Blade. Jareath moves behind a Skeleton hitting with Shocking Grasp. Azim moves up killing a Wight. Ulfgrim moves up using Green Flame Blade killing a Wight and Warrior of Sass Tam. Sir Axialrod cuts another head off. Then hitting another. The last Wights attack Sir Axialrod and Ulfgrim, but miss. Seakul kills one Wight, Errich kills the last Wight.
The party to search the Blood Pens (through the White gate), a set of double doors with sound of squealing (pigs). The large room used to be a great hall, pigs fill the room. There are walkways suspended from pillars (which are marked with red x’s). Errich climbs onto the pigs backs runs across their backs to a pillar and tries to climb a pillar. Resists the magic and climbs the pillar. Sir Axialrod pushes his way through, Seakul, Jareath, Ulfgrim and Azim following to the doors opposite. As the doors open the pig rush through the doors. Cries from the other side can be herd. This room (50′×80′) is a converted abattoir, a group of humans (eight, Thayvian Warriors) can be seen dealing with loose pigs and slaughtering pigs. A Wight stands in the middle and a large beast, Otyugh, can be seen eating a pig in the corner. A lack gate is also located here.
Jareath maneuver into the room (past pigs), casts Thunder wave on three humans in the corner. The shoots the Wight Errich sneaks into the space and stabs a Thayvian Warrior in the corner (killing him), then moves out of the way. Sir Axialrod charges the Wight in the middle. The Thayvian Warriors open the doors to let the pigs out. The two jareath knocked over, get up and attack him. Azim runs into the room attacking one of the Thayvian Warriors on Jareath. The Wight hits Sir Axialrod. Ulfgrim struggles into the room, past the pigs, Fire Bolts a Thayvian Warrior killing him. Seakul runs slowly into the room. The Otyugh is busy eating a pig.
Jareath casts Heat Metal on a Thayvian Warrior on the other side of the room, then shoots at another but misses. Errich runs like a ranger killing another Thayvian Warrior. Sir Axialrod kills the Wight, then moves back to protect the Bard. The Thayvian Warriors struggle through the pig toward the party. Azim moves through the pigs to attack the Thayvian Warriors who are now in the middle of the room (hitting three times). Ulfgrim moves up and casts Fire Bolt killing another Thayvian Warrior. Seakul struggle through more pigs toward the Otyugh and prepares to attack. The Otyugh sends a tentacle to attack Seakul, and in his mind is a voice saying “Food”.
The pigs have cleared out. Jareath concentrates burning a Thayvian Warrior with Heat Metal and shoots at another Thayvian Warrior but misses again. Errich stabs the Thayvian Warrior in the middle and then Sir Axialrod then kills him, then throws a dagger at one. Three Thayvian Warrior surround Errich smashing him. Ulfgrim attacks a Thayvian Warrior on Errich. Seakul finally attacks the Otyugh, hitting once. It then attacks Seakul, biting him once. Jareath’s spell finally kills the Thayvian Warrior with Heat Metal, he then attacks another. Errich attacks and kills one, stabs another and runs away (getting hit in the process). Sir Axialrod knocks over a Thayvian Warrior then hits him three more times. The Thayvian Warrior attack, miss Sir Axialrod which triggers Azim and Sir Axialrod to smash him dead. The other two Thayvian Warriors nick Ulfgrim. Azim kicks the other Thayvian Warrior three times. Ulfgrim casts Green Flame Blade hitting the Thayvian Warrior now fighting him. Seakul finally hits the Otyugh twice. The Otyugh misses.
Jareath moves and casts Shocking Graspon the Thayvian Warrior in front of Ulfgrim killing him.
