last week's Greyhawk write-ups.
At the bottom of the stairs, they found a stinky rubble-strewn basement. Tuckras, the last one in, suddenly collapsed by the entrance. Vyph saw a shadowy figure dart up the stairs. Sakura checked on Tuckras while the others chased the shadow. Tuckras had a small wound like a bee sting on the back of his neck and wouldn't wake up, but seemed to be okay. Sakura stayed to make sure he didn't get eaten or something.
The shadowy figure ran out into the courtyard, pursued by the heroes. Jinso attacked him hand-to-hand while Vyph cast entangle on both of them. The assassin was a human with a big scar down the right side of his face. He had Anton in a big burlap sack for some reason. The fight dragged on, but eventually they bashed his skull in. They found vials of sleep poison and lethal poison, but no antidote. Tuckras seemed stable, but still refused to wake up.
In the course of searching the basement, they found some money and a three-foot high worked passageway. Dragging Tuckras along, they decided to investigate. The passage led to a vertical shaft of the same size. Anton cast light on a coin and dropped it to see how deep it was. Once they knew it was a manageable depth (35'), they tied a rope to Tuckras' bedpost staff and laid it across the shaft to anchor their rope.
At the bottom, they found a natural cavern. Sakura saw a threatening shadow with raised claws and blasted it with a thunderwave, revealing that it was actually a petrified troll. The arm broke off, so they kept that for Tuckras. A passageway with chiseled-out stairs led down past the troll. At the bottom was another natural cavern with several branching passages and a stream running through at the far end. There were lots of columns & other formations scattered about.
Once they all moved in, six camouflaged troglodytes popped out with spears and attacked. A fish-man with a weird eclectic staff kinda climbed out of the pool and commanded them to bow to the majesty of Demogorgon and "Auntie Olga Pigtooth." While the troglodytes attacked, he made impressive thunderclap sounds and his eyes glowed.
The fight didn't go well. Both Jinso and Sakura went down, and the other two were wounded. Vyph cast darkness and, while the troglodytes stumbled around and picked fights with each other, he and Anton dragged the others out and retreated as fast as they could.
