The party moves down the stairs to the basement. They find little of value in the first room, but find two human prisoners in the second room. The prisoners are Cevin (warlock) and Dawin (ranger), who were taken prisoner when a merchant caravan they were traveling with was attacked by goblins. The party hears noises coming from down a tunnel and a bunch of giant rats run in. The party freezes and the rats ignore them and keep going. The party advances and finds a pool of water. Dawin takes his armor off, wades into the pool, and uses Ellowyn’s spear to test the bottom. He step on a bronze dragon scale, but doesn’t know what it is yet.
The party move further through the basement area and hear the rats coming back behind them. They flee into a room only to find a group of surprise and unhappy goblins. Nova uses a sleep spell to put the goblins to sleep, Cevin stabs them with her dagger, while the rest of the party deals with the rats.
The party searches the room and finds a ladder to a loft area. Nothing of value is found except for another bronze dragon scale. They then move back upstairs to search the rest of the manor. Moving to the second floor, they dodge the goblins patrolling the manor several times. They find goblins sleeping in one room and some playing a game of chance in another room. Moving to open a door, they encounter a goblin exiting the room across the hall. The goblins screams, alerting the rest of the house. The party kills the goblin, rushes into the room, kill the other goblins in the room. Nova and Cevin remain in the hall and see the goblin leader exit a room at the end of the hall, summoning the sleeping goblins to charge and kill the invaders. Everyone rushes into the room and barricade the door.
Trapped, the party hear the goblins trying to break down the door. Then they hear explosions and a goblin alchemist starts to blow the door open. The party ties rope to a table and climb out of the window.
On the ground, the party is chased into a nearby stable. The close and bar the door only to find a lone goblin inside. Cevin raises her hands to surrender to see what the goblin does. He too, raises his hands to surrender, but in doing so reaches for the lever on one of the stables. Caprica shoots him with her bow but as he dies, he pulls the level and four wolves are released. Nova uses a sleep spell on the wolves and the party dispatches them. At the same time, they party hears the goblins banging on the door and take positions in the hay loft. Soon after, the door is blown open in a massive explosion and the goblins pour in. Several are felled by Eos and Caprica’s arrows, and Nova and Cevin put the rest to sleep. They party climbs down and starts to kill the goblins only to find the goblin alchemist in the doorway. He cackles and throws a bomb inside. The party dives for cover. They get up and the alchemist bombs them again. On the third try, the party rushes him, Eos strikes him down with his sword, and party comes face to face with five goblins and their hobgoblin leader.
