Subterranean prison; Heskan euthanases a caged skeleton
Minotaur skeleton slam-dunks Newt
Hook up an elevator cage, determined the existence of a further cavern beneath the pit.
Short rest for Newt to recuperate and Erin to rally everyone.
Descend into an alcove; Thamior locates zombies, planned ambush headbursts 4 zombies in the surprise round
Continue along to a mining area, fight with a zombie ogre and six other zombies, another short rest to recuperate. Erin offers Thamior a combat tip about using a dagger in his off hand.
Thamior disguises everyone as zombies; Newt and Thamior push the cart with Erin and Heskan in it around the mine
Minecart gets loose (Erin rolls a 1, pulls the brake lever loose) runs over zombies. Newt and Thamior pretend to be part of the pursuing horde
“Hold your breath…they can smell your brains.”
At the end of the rail, unmarked ship with zombie dockworkers. Erin and Heskan retreat, pursued (slowly) by dock zombies
Heskan breaks disguise and assassinates ogre zombie once Newt and Erin arrive
Everyone impersonates zombies successfully (Heskan pretends to be a crate) to board the ship and ambush and knock unconscious a live human in the captain’s quarters. Heskan casts the gangplank off; after a brief scuffle the remaining shipboard zombies are tossed overboard. Zombies remaining on the dock are easy pickings for Heskan’s Eldritch Blast.
Thamior sneaks down the mooring rope to check out the dock office, finds only old paperwork from when the mine was in operation.
Newt and Erin very…slowly…row…the ship out of the cavern. A search of the ship turns up silver ore rather than the missing Guenevere.
