The party remained firmly entrenched in combat this session. While the spiders were small in number, their exoskeletons proved to be difficult to peirce. Their bites didn’t have any problems piercing, only making matters worse. Venom burning into their wounds, the party’s victory was at best uncertain.
Jamster continued to make good use of his newfound magic — as did Ciraena. Wherever these abilities are coming from, they seem to be permanent. More of a seasoned caster, Aiko quickly set things in the alleyway ablaze and proceeded to manipulate the flames on a smaller scale, trapping the one of the creatures where it stood. Dio arrived on the scene briefly; helping the familiar individuals out of harms way before taking off again.
Aeson continued to deftly chip away at the hide of another spider, before finally splitting its head down the middle while Jamster’s magic caught up to it at the same time, sending bits of spider and pale green hemolymph to splash the entire party. Slightly injured, slightly in need of a bath, but alive nonetheless. The party won.
Jamster looked on at the scene — him and nearly everyone ignoring the fires that continued to consume the area (with the exception of Aiko, who seemed to be pleased with herself ) — He found a trail of Gold Pieces leading to another mass of web. Aeson caught on shortly thereafter, and quickly followed the trail. Jamster’s realization that the spiders themselves likely set this trap to lure in prey did not stop him. He found A Pale Green Gem and a Stone key, along with other shiny but otherwise useless objects. The Key made Aiko feel uneasy. Once she was sure it wasn’t just the ale — thanks to Ciraena’s medical examination using her foot — She discovered that the key likely belongs to the box the party left in the Town Hall.
5 days remain until the Earthrain address. Spend them wisely — if Aero’s warning is of any merit, it may be difficult to relax in the City of Corvale before too long.
