PLAYERS: Briana, Josh, Stephen

- Fight guards at Jasmine’s mansion and go into cellar. Tunnel is full of zombies and they fight their way through to the trapdoor in the floor.
- trapdoor is an escape route that leads to some catacombs. Run through a room with names on the wall and into the next room. A black pudding is trying to get at something behind a fallen column.
- Knox’s shield is melted as well as Roderick’s heavy mace.
- can’t find anything behind the column. Nothing invisible, no secret doors, etc.
- next room there’s a cave-in. Start looking at coffins, maybe she’s hiding. Ray notices that the names are a memorial (like Vietnam memorial), and one is cut off by the back wall. He puts his hand through the illusion. Party steps through and sees a section of wall has crumbled revealing a large cave. Can hear water in the distance.

- After they make it safely across they see trolls and a balhannoth fighting. They are focusing somewhere deeper into the cave.
- when they notice the party they fight. Trolls are thrown in water to perma-drown.
- jasmine steps out and asks why they try to stop her. She’s bringing peace. No more war. No more homeless. A few innocents is a small price.
- party almost convinces her to give herself up, but her attitude snaps to cold and she sends the balhannoth at them.
- Knox challenges the beast. It grabs her and tears her apart while oren kills it.
