The team had nursed their wounds from the battle with the massive spider creature.  They decided to explore in a different direction and came upon a bubbling cauldron of stew heated by an unseen source.  The ground had runes inscribed around it saying, “Spice is the variety of life.”  As they approached a table covered in spices, a misty mihstu rose up from the steam and grappled Deska!  The team swarmed in and hammered at the creature as it tried to extract all of Deska’s fluids; however, she struggled well enough to prevent the creature from pinning her.  In short order, the group cut the creature down.  They began experimenting with the cauldron and discovered it could produce temporary potion-like stews.  They nearly killed Deska’s owl in their testing, but the team was pretty happy with the results.

Next the group ascended a flight of stairs, and Deska noticed shadows creeping in around them!  The unholy incorporeal undead began draining strength from the party!  Magnus and Denessia unleashed powerful blasts of positive energy which killed several of the shadows.  Good old fashioned weapons cut down several more.  However, the leader thrust its incorporeal hand into Denessia and dropped her to the edge of death.  Magnus, under a shadow onslaught, cast blessing of fervor, and the team was able to use the extra speed to rush Denessia back to the cauldron while the rest of the group finished off all the shadows.  Miraculously, the team was able to use the powers of the cauldron to prevent Denessia from dying and becoming a shadow herself!

The group made camp to gain restoration spells to fix their problems.  The team then went back down a hallway to explore another door they had yet to investigate.
