The team decided to see what the prison-looking area scrawled on their map actually was.  They found it was actually a large tomb with ten sealed burial caves blocked by carved stones.  Deska and Magnus were able to detect necromantic magic.  All Might muscled one of the doors open and triggered a trap!  He seemed to shake it off, but disturbing the grave brought forth two barbarian ghosts!  The mere sight of the creatures wracked the party with pain and supernatural aging.  The ghosts floating closer and began thrusting their evil incorporeal hands into the bodies of the party and rending their life forces.  They proved particularly difficult to fight with blades partially passing through them.  Their corrupting gaze continued to wear away on the party who never tried to close their eyes or stare at the floor and not see the ghosts at all.  The team continued to age and suffer to the point Kenwrec collapsed unconscious.  All Might used bless and spiritual weapon to great effect, and Greta found herself desperately trying to keep poor Ten-Penny alive with healing spells.  Deska cast flame strike that dealt some damage, and Magnus channeled positive energy to revitalize his team.  The dwarven warriors engaged, and their shear rage and ferocity wore down the spirits.  Finally, Svala’s enchanted dwarven axe dealt felling blows to both spirits, temporarily discorporating them until they can reform to continue haunting the graves.  The team then nursed their wounds and traveled down a stairwell without exploring the other tombs.

The party entered a large temple dedicated to some kind of hag.  Artifacts used in evil rituals hung all around the room.  Doors led in all different directions.  A terrible flaming witchfire stood in the temple and seemed surprised to see them and not Caigreal.  She asked them about the woman, and the team seemed confused and unable to recall exactly to whom the undead spirit referred.  The witchfire determined they were obviously not supposed to be there and began hurling bolts of witchfire!  Several of the team burst into flame as they tried to close the distance.  The spirit tried to maneuver to keep the team from ganging up on her, but there were too many.  Despite horribly burning several, the spirit was unable to withstand the combined might of the team focused upon her, and she was cut down.
