The party continued their investigation of Madame Orinas estate. Some of the highlights were:
- Thodrus “Brunt” Frostforge found a poisonous snake on the bed in the guest bedroom upstairs. Being the poison-magnet that he is, he was bitten by the snake but made his saving throw and was able to shrug off the effects of the poison. The snake was dispatched quickly by the nimble dwarf by a quick punch to the face, smashing several bones in its face and head.
- Khatur “Patches” Copperbeard discovered a painting gallery on the lower floor, complete with an epic painting of a black castle with a horde of warriors pouring out of it and smiting undead, orcs, trolls, ogres, and other monstrous enemies. The painting depicts the leader of the army riding on a hippogriff and smiting the monsters with a giant warhammer.
- Lucinda “Lulu” Tealeaf didn’t find any books while searching through the storage room, but did want to investigate the painting that Khatur “Patches” Copperbeard found when he investigated the studio room. Sharn Horst was also interested in the painting.
- Sanlas Grayal cast a Speak With Animals spell on the cat on the bed in master bedroom. The wanted to be fed tuna, but was persuaded to tell the party where the egg was.
- Kilrakas GuidingLight, Truk, and Gwen Nassau began walking east on the road when they saw a group of armed men gathering in a wooden knoll by the road. They decided to head back to the estate. Truk convinced Kilrakas GuidingLight that the others may be in trouble and that they should enter the estate looking for them.
- The party reunited in the main entry room. As the party entered, a candelabra on a short table ignited and lit the room, showing the splendor of the paintings in the entryway. The party began organizing to ascend the stairs and join up with Thodrus “Brunt” Frostforge and Sanlas Grayal who are already upstairs.
