The party head back to the bandit camp under instruction to observe any movement in or out of camp, infiltrate if possible and discover what is being hidden in the cave.
Upon returning to the camp, the players find it mostly deserted.
A group of awesome hunters strike up no conversation at all and the party “sneak up” on the cave entrance.
Heph sends in his familiar in the form of a fey rat, which sniffs out danger in the form of two full cultist members waiting in ambush.
Varis turns into a giant spider because why not and eats cultists.
Flint beats up some necrotic mushrooms and Lex triggers a trap after it is no longer useful.
Lex freaks out approx one million bats with a light spell on a rock and then sits down to summon a hidden servant.
The rest of the party go on to get eaten by Stirges hiding in the bat swarm. Varis spider-roof-climbs into the middle of the room and body slams some bad guys. Then turns into a tiger. Druids.
Some Kobolds wander into the bat room too, no idea why come to think of it, and get murdered by Stirges and jerk party members.
Lex’s ritual is interrupted by Stirges. I did not see that coming.
Heph comes to within one death save from dying while Varis does nothing helpful, but the party of three defeat the Stirge / Bat room.
Flint finds some small gems and nothing else at all in a garbage dump.
The party find some Kobolds in the Drake training room who die pretty fast. Lex steps on the best ever trap, becomes confused and walks off the ledge and into the middle of three Guard Drakes. Heph nearly dies again and is saved just in time when Varis heroically does nothing at all to help.
Stores of healing potions are getting low.
Attempting to take an hour long rest one room away from the Kobold barracks surprisingly doesn’t go well, and the party is forced to kill them all with fire, after face checking another trap.
Tune in next week for another entertaining episode of Hilarious Total Party Kill.
