Entry by Kan’na I’ra
After resting and licking our wounds for a few minutes, we continued on, and after a small chamber, we entered a long, narrow hallway. The hall, we believed, went down to the chamber where the well would be.
The room below was full of cobwebs, though there were places to walk between them. On one end was a massive spider, its bulk suspended from the ceiling with yet more cobwebs. Several times, the cobwebs just sort of reached out and grabbed us, sucking our blood and pumping it into the large spider. Smaller spiders were crawling all over the room, including one spitting spider that had escaped the previous room. That spider went to hide behind the large one, using that cover and the regenerative powers of the cobwebs to last even longer than the primary enemy.
It seemed to take hours, but finally, the giant spider was killed. However, her thorax exploded into a roiling mass of smaller spiders that were more annoying than anything else, even if we were about to die before. Once all of that was over, we searched among all of the spiders and webs, only to find the remains of other adventurers that had failed in the task that we had just completed. After we recovered some items from them, we made sure that their remains were disposed of in a respectful way.
On our way once again, we came to a trade settlement, Daseri Outpost. There, we settled into an inn, where Caldren tried to make a bit of money by singing songs. Of course, the orcs in the room couldn’t really appreciate the intricacies of the Eladrin ballad, and he had to play an orc-dirge a few times to shut them up.
No one really believes me, but I saw that stupid green gnome again. I think maybe he’s got something to do with the fact that we’re going to be going in the morning to kill a bunch of cultists. A nomadic chieftain came in and requested that we “take care” of a group of people that had been abducting locals, as well as retrieving a small trunk for him. In return, he says he’ll give us tattoos. The trunk is filled with the inks he uses. I guess we’ll see how things go.
