Another fireball explodes amid the party. Crumm, Adrick take the full brunt of the explosion. Droop falls screaming. Morgran moves into the hall into another room and drinks a potion of healing. Two kobolds in the room fire at him, one connecting slightly. Shamash lays hands on himself and starts climbing out of the pit. Adrik heals himself and Droop. Two more Kobolds fire at Morgran and one scores a solid hit. Crumm strides into the barroom and bursts into the mist. Reforming over a kobold, he puts his ax in its dumb skull.
Cade moves up and pops off a sniper magic missile volley and blasts a kobold near Crumm. Welby, in the far back near the entrance, sprints forward, into the bar room and across a pair of tables along the wall. The kobold caster pops out behind a curtain and firebolts Crumm with a strong blast and hides behind curtain on the stage. Morgran runs to the side of the stage and looks behind the curtain. He watches one of the two doors. The kobold behind the bar scarfaces up and shots two crossbows at Morgran . Another kobold, that Welby ran passed, drops his crossbow and charges Welby, scoring two hits. Shamash tumbles out of the pit with much showmanship. He runs into the room and blurs to the side of the kobold on Welby. He easily splits it mostly in half. Adrik heals himself again and moves into the room and behind cover. A kobold shots at Welby and hits him. Crumm moves behind the bar toward a kobold and heals himself on the way.
Cade moves into the room and uses his want to blast a kobold into oblivion near Welby. Welby sprints across the bar and shoots the kobold behind the bar but does not drop it. Welby runs into the backstage area and finds an empty room. He moves up to guard exit. Kobold attacks Crumm and knicks Crumm. Droop launches a javelin at the kobold behind the bar. A kobold behind a table is intimidated by Shamash and runs behind the curtain. Shamash gives chase, marking him. Adrik runs up behind Droop, kinda hiding, and heals him. Droop gazes longingly at Adrik as they share a special moment with a promise for more later in private. Crumm strikes twice and takes his head and moves toward the stage.
Cade move toward the stage. Welby gets behind the curtain and corners a kobold with his sword in its back and out the front. Welby drinks his potion of greater healing which seemed to be past its best by date. Droop heads backstage. Shamash enters the backstage room and past Morgran. Adrik follows Droop like a lovestruck puppy. Crumm heads to double doors to the main hall.
Cade investigates an odd smell and finds the privey. Backing away he moves to the next door. Welby moves into the backstage room and guards the corner of the hallway. Morgran down the hall and sees a drake and charges. But falls into a pit. Droop sprints to see down the hall. Shamash moves and sees the drake and first a crossbow shot but goes wide. Moving up, he too finds a pit of his own. Realizing he cannot catch his love, Adrik decides to follow Crumm. Crumm moves into the hall and goes north and heals himself.
Cade drinks a healing potion (a fresh one) and opens the door to his south to reveal a kitchen. Welby peaks over the edge of the pit and giggles and takes a long shot at the drake. Unfortunately, misses horribly. Then jumps back around the corner. Morgran climbs out by brute force and moves up to the drake and scores a solid hit. Droop leaps the first pit and throws a javelin but misses. Shamash uses all of his efforts to get out of the pit and marks the drake. Drake bites Morgran but misses with the claws. More drakes attack Morgran taking pieces out of him. Adrik moves up the hall and opens the door. Crumm moves past and blurs to engage a group of drakes on Morgran.
Cade moves after Crumm and Adrik. Welby jumps a pit to meet up with Shamash and Droop. Steps up and first a warning shot at the drakes. Adrik gets blasted with four beams of light in his back.

Two drakes claws at Morgran. Drake misses Shamash. Adrik heals himself and crosses the hall into another room. Crumm swings wildly but the drake is able to barely avoid him.
Cade runs with all his little heart to find the party as he is scared to be alone. Welby shots and finishes one drake that was mostly dead anyway. And hides behind the lowly goblin henchman who signs…“Not again…”. Morgran scores two strong hits on a drake, killing it. Droop moves forward and throws his last javelin weakly, missing. Shamash marks the last drake and scores one hit. The drake spins and misses Morgran. Adrik moves into hallway and guards the door with his crossbow. Crumm slashes the drake.
Cade makes it to the hallway and uses Eldrick “Blast” to tickle the drake lightly. Welby shots and stings the drake and chases Droop down to hide under his loincloth. Cade feels a sharp pain in his back and his back sprouts a knife. Shrugging off pain, Morgran finishes off the last drake. Droop stands guard. Shamash checks out one room and then moves down the hall. Adrik opens the closed door he was guarding to reveal a bedroom. Crumm moves down by Cade.
Cade drinks his last healing potion (another fresh one). Welby jumps the pit and strides through dead drakes. Morgran takes his last potion of greater healing and moves down to the end of the hall. Droop clears the pit and moves up to Cade. With info from Adrik, Shamash goes in search of a backstabber. Crumm pairs up with Morgran to search as well.
Finding no threats, we hold up in a room for a rest. But do not heal our wounds yet.
