The team realized with so many of their number blinded, they were in serious trouble.  They figured the giants were unlikely to come back into the nymph’s chamber since two had been slain here and thought maybe other things would avoid her as well.  So, Deska cast hide campsite, and the team rested.  All Might and Magnus were able to prepare five remove blindness/deafness spells and restore the party to normal health!

The group headed back the way they came seeking a side passage still in search of the demon creature.  They found a set of quartz runes in the floor beside a table.  On the table sat a bowl filled with wildflowers and four wooden statues.  Deska recognized the poses of the figures from the first room they entered, so she sent her magical owl back to observe and report telepathically what it saw.  The group arranged the figures in the same order but failed to do anything with the flowers.  This triggered a magical trap causing the four figures to grow to 3 feet in height and animate as wood golems!  The creatures attacked with fist and splittered blasts.  The team learned the hard way they were resistant to magic and non-adamantine weapons.  In the small hallways, the team struggled to get a lot of enemies engaged at once.  Several of the team wisely hurled alchemist’s fire among the wooden creatures.  Ten-Penny made an amazing acrobatic roll down the hallway but fumbled along the way.  She took a beating and eventually had to flee.  Magnus was able to keep the team going with channeled positive energy as Tulvur, Kenwrec, and Svala jockeyed to get into some kind of striking position.  The creatures pressed in, and Kenwrec kept landing killing blows, eventually destroying all four of the menaces!

Moments later a gorgeous woman with heterochromatic eyes appeared suddenly in the hallway.  She smiled and spoke with the team at length.  She did not reveal much about herself, but she indicated she was a servant of Baba Yaga.  She warned the group the frost giants, centaur, and demons were all aligned and ahead of the team in the complex.  Right before disappearing, she handed Deska a small metal key.
