Party takes an 8 hour rest in the Temple. During the night, the group is awaken by screaming. Kong goes to investigate and finds a group of wondering goblins with wolves. He leads them back to the temple and the party needs to make an escape out the back door.
The group retreats to the library and feel they have lost their pursuers. They enter the library and confront the goblin guards there along with Rort, the Goblin Spellcaster who is exploring the books. A battle follows and despite the fact that the spellcaster summons some grey oozes, the party easily prevails. 600XP.
However, while the library battle is going on, the wolf keepers returned for reinforcements and track the party to the library. They goblins barracade the doors and try to smoke them out by setting fire to the library. Kong climbs up the chimney, along the roof, then falls off the roof knocking himself out. Secretly, Guido’s kobolds are watching this entire scene, and grab the fallen gnome dragging him back to the kobold slums..
The group without the Kong chops through a wall and escapes just as the goblins are distracted by kobolds.
The group re-groups in the hall of Guido Clementine.
The kobolds are preparing a raid on the goblins, and Guido gives the party a mission to kill a goblin patrol and promises, in exchange, to provide information about the location of the shard.
The party sets up to ambush the goblins but before they can, a group of Severed Eye orcs attack the goblin patrol first. They interrogate and brand 2 of the goblins and then release them. Both factions detect the party and attack them. BIg battle occurs. Only some quick thinking by Quinn casting ghost sound distracted the last two orcs and saved the party. Guido Clementine is not happy with the party. XP 1000.
The next morning, the party sets out to investigate the steaming pools, but is discovered and attacked by a Severed Eye hobgoblin group which they narrowly defeat. XP 750
