As soon as they enter the second room of the Twisting Halls Zanril Leofire triggers a trap in the wall and is lost forever…maybe.
Going from there Norian Chorster] and Ricorin Lightouch the Halfblack continue to fight their way through the ancient dungeon confronting goblins, rats and having a conversation with A FREAKING DRAGON named Farallax.
Thanks to Ricorin’s elf eyes the duo avoided a shabbily rigged up trap (of obvious goblin craftsmanship) and also they got a nice rug out of the deal.
Once they had almost reached Malareth ’s labratory/lair the party encountered a changeling mercenary, named Jixin, that was hired by Malareth to protect him but the changeling could see that she was no match for the sheer badassery of Norian and Ricorin and surrendered to them…they then wrapped her in a rug, tied her up, and knocked her out (thanks to Ricorin who seemingly becoming very adept at everything).
LATER IN MALARETH’S LABLAIR. After making an incredibly awesome entrance Ricorin and Norian proceeded to kinda get rocked by Malareth and his undead army (or at least Ricorin was). But thanks to extreme amounts of ridiculous magic from Norian (including turning Malareth into a toad) he was able to run back to the changeling prisoner, offer her money to help them, and momentarily convince the undead not to attack just long enough to kill ’em all.
The party returns Traevus’ box (that held an odd staff) to him which he was delivering to someone who could destroy it or keep it out of the wrong hands
