The day after Simi had spotted the mysterious tall figure, Asper went to the urchins and managed to acquire the woman’s possessions. The most significant of these was a locket with a (not very well) drawn picture of the man in the bar who Callista had pestered previously. It would seem that the woman he was waiting for may have been the plant creature. When they got back to the bar there was no sign of the young man.
Asper talked Silverfang (who is the mightiest hunter) into trying to track down either the gnomes or the mysterious tall person. After some slight wording issues they took Silverfang to the rough area where the man was last seen. Silverfang picked up a strange scent which led them to part of the sewers. After some investigating and crawling through a very smelly tunnel they come across a natural cavern full of what you might expect in a sewer. There was a large pile in the centre of the room which appeared to have something moving in it. As Qog went to throw a rock towards it a large tentacled creature jumped out from it and attacked. It was killed quickly and after some more investigation of the cavern they found three passages leading out from the cavern. One of these led to another cavern full of dead bodies and one of these was a gnome who was separate from the others. Some of these bodies had mould on them but the tunnel was unstable so Asper only managed to retrieve the gnome’s body. Another passage led to another cavern where there were 3 bug like creatures that Asper managed to identify as bugs which would rust any metal that they came into contact with. These were tied to posts with hemp rope so they were killed by firing arrows and spells at them from a distance. From this cavern there was another passage which led into a room with some mats on the floor. As the party entered they spotted 6 of the elf type creatures they had encountered in Occipitus. These were obviously waiting for the party and when they entered the room the elves charged.
