Breg looks for and finds dwarves to the left. Violet sees a number of gnomes. Lionel sees a creature that might be undead beside one of the doors.

Breg and Calico start off towards things that spark their interest. Rowaine calls them back - don't split the party.

Calico looks at hourglass and believes the sand will last for a total of half an hour.

Calico hears his name! Then spots the probable source: a small female, chained to the floor towards the centre of the room.

All head out towards the female, Calico leading the way. They pass a creature crouched over because of the short chain around its neck. Upward thrusting tusks from its lower jaw, male: an orc. Eyes put out. In the tattered remnants of poor clothing that has crude symbols of Pelor. Breg attempts to converse in orcish, but the creature only mutters unintelligibly. Continue.

Approach female. Eyes out. Skin on inside out. Manacled by all four limbs on short chains to the floor. Calico recognises her as a nymph. Her head turns unseeingly towards the party and she says:

"If you're cold, feed the sea;
Use not the day, lest you fall with me;
Forever safe, forever dangled,
The dog himself by his own tail was strangled.
Calico, beware the sundered sword!

Her head then lolls back to the stone floor. It appears as if she has expended all that remains of her. The rest she says is unintelligible.


Talk about heading back when pop, all goes black and then the party find themselves in a circular room. Two of eight doors around the circumference are open and there are coins on the floor. Breg orients himself, indicates a door that should lead out and all follow him that way. It is indeed the way out. Troll Acids an arrow on the floor to indicate that door. He surveys his work, smirks, then embellishes it. All take a breather outside.

Go back into the circular room, unlock door to the south and go into the statue corridor. All is as it was. Go south, then look at door to east with drow face. Breg looks at holes: nearly an inch in diameter, they curve multiple times. Keyhole does the same, strangely.

Go to other door. Breg checks it then pushes it open. Library. Librarian shuffling around. It smells dusty and dry in here. Breg calls out to the figure. It stops and turns its head to look at the figures in the open door, then continues on its way. Rowaine senses evil about it.

Breg enters and steps to the left. He just catches a glimpse of movement over his right shoulder as something very large with many limbs launches itself upon him. He is hit three times and grappled. He casts Dimension Door to escape but the spell fizzles.
