After hiding in Ale’s modest house, a huge beetle smashed its way in… defeated (magic missile of cold)
Alerted one of the other beetles on the way out, sprinted down bracken covered path
10 strangers attacked beetle, 6 survived and joined the party as hirelings
Approaching the keep, Sigourney and disguise, vine creatures, one guy ran, other killed…
Ale and Dweb round the back, Dweb sends someone up… crashes down the stones killing him but exposing a tunnel!
After catching up with Sigourney they all enter… pentagram door torches Dweb’s other hireling…
Into the cold room, with the prone warrior.
