Namel has detect magic cast 30 seconds ago.

Seeing the statue. No one recognizes the skulls. Teu touches the statue with his mage hand. Everyone decides to leave it.

Dayjumper lifts the chainmail out of the chest, setting off the gas trap, filling the room with gas. Everyone has burning eyes and throat from the poison, but Hjolgram and Dayjumper are also gagging and choking. As they pile out of the room, Merida breaths a breath of healing on the party.

As they return to the war room, Teu closes the doors behind them and then Namel casts healing on both Dayjumper and Merida. The chainmail goes into Dayjumper's backpack.

Proceed into hallway... and ambushed. Duergar hammerers, enlarged, a mind master, and a bunch of crossbowman. Heavy combat, during which Merida once attacks Teu and Namel attacks Dayjumper. The mindmaster and the 2x crossbowmen get away.

Party quickly throws down healing and proceeds.

They meet Grandolpha, who effectively tells them that as long as no one tells her they are her to kill Xardorok, she will stay there eating her soup.

They take the elevator down. In the next room are a pair of duergar... who turn their backs to the party.

The next room is the throne room and as far as they make it. Four quoggoth are attacking a myconid. They have torn its arm off and are collecting its spores.

The party makes it halfway across the room before they are noticed and the fight begins. Then four  more quoggoth join in. Then five duergar, one of which wears a crown.

The battle is fierce, but early on the myconid begins to fight back, then raise spore servants. Hjolgram falls and Dayjumper falls twice. The party is literally out of spells and use all their healing, except one Potion of Healing they pillaged.

They smash the chardalyn throne and all the chardalyn that Xardorok wore,

As they are leaving, they swing back by the bed chamber, empty the chest and smash the chardalyn statue.

They end up with

  • obsidian (250 gp)
  • a quilted smoking jacket sized for a dwarf and sewn with fifty gemstones (500 gp)
  • a malachite beard comb set with seven red garnets (750 gp)
  • a hookah made of platinum and star sapphire (2,500 gp)
  • 2x Magic Shortswords +2. (one to Hjolgram and one to Teu)
  • a Magic Warpick +1. 
  • a suit of Duergar Battle Armor. (to Namel).

Hjolgram pulls a panther, a giant badger, and boar from the bag of tricks to escort them. None of the creatures survive long once they return to the outside.

They return to the shelter where the animals are and Teu puts a tiny hut in the entrance to improve the shelter value.
