Buttercup and Crackers decide they are ready to leave the camp from session 2. They head through the woods, following Va’kil, Bob, and Graels path to the fallen tree bridge. There, after a close call with Buttercup, they find their way across with the assistance of Bob’s rope.
They continue onward to a dark and twisted forest valley. Just when things start to get really creepy, they come upon a ruined tower, obviously damaged by sorcery and war long ago. After a cursory exploration of the surface area, they come upon a staircase down that looks to have seen recent use. At the bottom of the stairs, they encounter a trio of Fanged Skeletons. One has a bow and the other two swords.
Battle is engaged, and Va’kil is swarmed by the two sword wielding Skeletons, as well as shot by the bow wielding one. Bob assists Va’Kil while Buttercup charges and disarms the bow skeleton. Crackers and Grael blast the skeletons with magic while Buttercup puts a hurt on the now disarmed bow skeleton. The party defeats the skeletons handily after the initial surge.
Va’Kil leads them further into the underground chamber, where he triggers a trap, causing debris to fall on his head. Luckily his armor protects him from most of the damage. Down the hall, they find some ruined storage rooms, and some imprisoned Dalish elves. They speak to the leader, Lorekeeper Orellis, who informs them about Mythallen‘s origins. They also find out that Mythallen has left with the Revengers to attack Vintiver. One of the Dalish offer’s to guide them on a shortcut he knows to help them catch up.
The players head out, and make quick progress through the forest. Unfortunately, they are ambushed by a Giant Spider, and her spiderlings. A brutal fight ensues, with several players coming close to be knocked out of the fight. Ginger arrives just in time to turn the tide in the player’s favor, and they successfully defeat the spider. Everyone is wounded, and mana reserves have been exhausted. The players decide to rest for a few hours to get some mana/health back.
