After an exhausting and near fatal encounter with the invisible stalkers the four survivors decided that maybe Miles was still alive, but held prisoner somewhere. The group went out and purchased some potion of See Invisible and with better spells the group headed back in Sodden Hold. Just before entering the last room they all drank their potion and headed in. This time they saw some floating semi-humanoid forms floating in the room. Rollo immediately began firing eldritch blasts at the invisible stalkers. Appius cast some help spell to help everyone to hit the invisible stalkers and by the time they got close enough to Crag and Septimius the battle was well in hand. Crag and Septimius, now that they could see their targets, swung hard and hit often. Within three rounds after the battle started it was over. Searching the room both the bodies of Sandreus and the fake Miles were gone. The door at the far end of the room was unlocked. On the other side of the door was a huge empty chamber with two holes in the floor. One was a jagged hole the was a square opening with a shaft leading down about 35 feet to water with a wooden barrel floating in the water. A crude rope ladder descended down to the level of the water. The group thoroughly searched the room and found no secret doors and hidden alcoves of any kind. Rollo spider climbed his way down to the barrel and inspected the area of any thing he could find. Appius was the next one down he jumped into the hole and floated down into the barrel. The barrel was waterproof and supported him without a problem. Next Rollo spider climbed down into the water and look to see if he could find any opening. At the bottom of the shaft was an opening that led into a tunnel. Rollo returned and informed the party to hat he had found. Appius turned to barrel over and let some water into the barrel. He then climbed under the barrel and let his weight pull him to the bottom of the shaft. He inspected the area and didn’t find any traps or secret areas. He then climbed his way back up to the surface of the water. The group decided that going under water was the only way for them to go. So the group of them jumped in and floated down to the bottom of the shaft and walked down the corridor. The corridor was about 20 feet long and open into a large underground chamber with a central pillar. Before they could get close enough to inspect the pillar a giant octopus attacked them. Unfortunately they were not using piercing weapon and their swing were slowed because of the water. Even with the disadvantage the group sliced the octopus into little pieces with just a few attacks. A quick check of the pillar revealed a ladder going up to the surface of the water. The climbed out of the water and found a platform with a lever in the middle. There was also a bridge of sorts that about 12 feet long the lead to a door. Appius decided to push the level and see what would happen, immediately the level of the water began to drop. Before it got to far Appius decided to move the level back to where is was before he pushed it. They headed down the bridge and inspected the door. The door was locked and with no one with the experience to open doors they proceeded to bash the door down. After a lot of attacks the lock finally gave way. Beyond the door was a ten foot passage that end in a “T”. As Septimius, Appius, Crag and Rollo headed down the hall they ran into a large group of doppelgangers waiting for them. Septimius immediately ran into the center of the doppelganger on the left side, Appius and Appius engaged the doppelganger on the right side and Rollo fired eldritch blast where it would help most. Septimius was dropping one and cleaving right into the next doppelganger. Crag and Appius were disposing of their doppelganger almost as quickly. With only one doppelganger left the decided to capture and intimidate him for as much information as they could get. With Crag breathing down his neck the doppelganger explained that his boss was named Telakin and that their friend was head hostage in the room behind the secret door in the room at the end of the hall on the left. So they tied up their new friend and set of to free their comrade.
