Enjoying another restful evening the group encouraged by the easy defeat of the Demogrogon followers decided it was high time to beat down the last group behind the Vecna door. Traveling back to the elevator room the group tried the metal key they had found with the grimlock spellcaster. The key opened the door and the group moved down the dark hallway before them. The group lined up single file and headed in. Septimius, Crag, Sandreus, Appius, Rollo, Tiberius followed up by Shamus came to a four-way intersection and choose to go right. They continued on and came to another four-way intersection again the choose to go right. From out of nowhere two bird-like humanoids attacked Shamus from behind. They apparently were rouges because they inflicted a lot of damage. The rest of the group reacted quickly Shamus moved past Tiberius and began looking for the cleric. Crag moved and helped block the hallway so that the bird creatures would have to go through him to get to the rest of the party. From the open corridor north of Septimius a secret door opened and out flew a an orb down the hallway towards the rest of the party followed shortly by a explosion. When the fire and smoke cleared most of the party was severely wound and poor Shamus lay dead in the center of the explosion along with one of the bird-men. To prevent another such incident the group scattered in all directions. Septimius moved to the center of the hallway, Rollo and Tiberius launched all they could at the fireball launching bird-men. Crag ran to engage the fireball launching bird-men. Appius began healing the party and Sandreus began singing to boost the group’s morale. The fire-singed bird-men ran through a secret door and the door shut behind him. Coming from the north end of the first intersection were to dire weasels. Septimius chose to charge the weasels before they could charge the rest of the party. Appius while healing up everyone spotted a light coming from the west where they had not been to before. While Crag was engaged on the right the fire-singed bird-men appeared south of Crag and began firing on him with a crossbow. At the same time two weasels appear to the north of Crag and charged him. Septimius attacked the weasel that had attached itself to him with the help of Rollo and Tiberius. When suddenly two bird-men appear behind Septimius from out of a secret door. Also behind the two weasels that were on Crag appear two more bird-men with crossbows and began to shot at Crag slowly wearing him down. Appius and Sandreus were busy healing everyone they could get to, except for Septimius who was cut off from the party. Septimius killed his first weasel and was working on his second weasel, but was struggling after having taken hits from both the bird-men and bleeding wound from the first weasel. Knowing that he couldn’t take very much more damage before he would drop made the decision to take one for the team and kill as much as he could before they finished him. Rollo and Tiberius continued to fire on any and every target they figured they could kill. Up to this point they had killed one of the two bird-men who had launched the fireball. One of the bird-men who was attacking Septimius and damaging several more. Unfortunately two more bird-men appear to the south of Crag. This now left Crag holding off single-handedly two bird-men from the north with crossbows, the now dead weasels from the north, although not without taking some damage. Crag further held off two bird-men from the east and now two bird-men from the south. The second bird-man from the east of Crag was not like the other bird-men he cast several spells mostly targeted on Rollo. Rollo had taken sever damage twice and fell dying only to be revived by his good friend Appius. The two bird-man archers from the far west continued to harass Appius, Rollo and Tiberius. The battle took a turn for the better as Septimius was able to out last the weasels and finish off the last of the bird-men on him. Appius charged the two bird-men in the west corridor and Tiberius and Rollo gave help whenever they could. And they it happened, two of the archers charged Crag with clubs as the other two archers shot at Crag and they all hit the same round. Crag dropped dead instantly and the group was over run by bird-men. The group made a decision to try and make a run for the elevator room to get away. The only problem was there was still one bird-men between the adventures and freedom. Septimius still severly wound charged and dropped the bird-man as the rest of the party ran past him heading for the exits. Only Sandreus stayed right behind Septimius to continue to healing him as Septimius tanked for the freedom of the party. Rollo and Tiberius continued to assault the bird-men from the elevator room, but the bird-men continued to fire on the missile users and again dropped Rollo. Appius being close by again revived Rollo. Septimius engaged the main bird-man warrior, the two combatants fought well, but neither could land the finishing blow. Every time the bird-man landed a blow Sandreus used the wand to heal Septimius. The bird-man continued to attack and pull back so that Septimius had to move further into the hallway. Septimus eventually came to the intersection and saw the bird-man spellcaster and chose to charge and try to kill him before he could inflict any more damage. Sandreus, Tiberius and Rollo were able to finish off the lead warrior that Septimus left behind. Finally with their leader down the last bird-man warrior and bird-man spellcaster made a run for it. The group came back in gather up all treasure that radiated magic and grabbed the bodies for their to fallen comrades and made for their secure room for the night.
