9th of Eleint, 1492

The party walks back to the pond mother's home. As they approach, Dramora pulls all three puff balls from her Tan Bag of Tricks: tiger, axe beak, and giant weasel. Dramora gestures to the far stairwell and says, "go forth and conquer!" She then assumes bear shape going to the near stairwell. Yem follows the beasts, everyone else follows Dramora.

With the party split between both stairwells, each side fights with a malison yaun-ti. A pureblood yuan-ti looks down on the stairwell from above. As Dramora the bear fights, Zhaan is able to push past Dramora and overran the yaun-ti, putting her in a flanking position. Cookie engages the yaun-ti on the balcony over the stairs trading sacred flames with poison sprays. 

Dramora finishes the first yaun-ti. Yem is hit in the face with a spray of poison.

Yem again hits the yaun-ti with a firebolt, then Zhaan comes around from the other side and finishes that yuan-ti, finishes both on the side. Another failed attempt to poison spray Cookie and his opponent runs back from the balcony to find his partner fighting a tiger... and turning the tiger back into a puff ball.

Yem firebolts the yaun-ti that is now fighting the axe beak. Zhaan jumps off the balcony then pushes her way past Yem, the giant weasel, the axe beak, and successfully overruns the yaun-ti. Tanneth opens the now cleared door finding a group of scared yuan-ti huddling in this room. He says, "you're safe" to them and turns calling for "Cookie", then continues around finding door; no trap, but locked. Zhaan finds herself flanked, fighting both remaining yaun-ti guards. Meanwhile, the axe beak scores a good hit on the remaining malison. The malison keeps his focus on the axe beak biting and stabbing it.

Yem magic missiles the malison, still not dropping it. Cookie attempts to persuade the yuan-ti to come out; they are no convinced. Zhaan gets a powerful hit again the pureblood, knocking him back and prone. Tanneth picks the lock and opens the door. Dramora begins running for the other stairwell.

Yem digs deep, fires a firebolt right into the malison's face.... and despite the third degree burns, it is still standing. Zhaan finishes the pureblood, turns and drops the malison. 

The main group of yaun-ti head to the temple to clean up while a pair go with the party back to the Pond Mother.

They tell her of the battles; that the temple is cleared, the ponds are cleared, her home is cleared, and around the docks. She tells them that she received a sending that all is well. The yuan-ti declare that it must have been the scaled mother.

They all return to the area, finding all the 'good' yuan-ti alive and the cleric amongst them was able to raise the yuan-ti.

They return to the trading post and the grippli them host a seafood feast for the heroes. The party stays with the grippli and insure that all is truly well and good.
