The team climbed into the old wardrobe and found it led to a dark passageway.  They emerged into a dark chamber with a single flickering candle.  Several of the team noticed their shadows detach and animate!  Kenwrec recognized these as shadow demons, and the creatures slipped through the cracks around the door and fled, whispering bits and pieces of information about the party as they went.  The group unlocked the heavily barred door through which the demons fled and then thought better of it and re-barred the door.  They went back through the wardrobe and cut through the vines in the other room into a sunlit dilapidated hut.

Deska looked out the window and saw a spidery creature approaching.  Baknarla went into the room and suddenly disappeared, but her equipment did not!  As it all clattered to the ground, Deska noticed Baknarla was now out in the woods with the spider!  Deska shattered the glass which caused an explosion, and suddenly Baknarla and the spider, a derghodaemon, were among the team!  The daemon was a brutal fighter, devastating the party with its rending claws.  Yelnoth tried to hit it with a disintegrate spell as the daemon’s maddening clicking drove several of the party insane.  The spell failed against its spell resistance, but it used greater teleport to appear beside the sorcerer!  Deska unleashed a barrage with sunbeam, and Kenwrec, Greta, and Tulvur closed in and battered a way.  Finally, Shatha landed a colossal critical hit, slaying the creature!

The group then continued exploring and found themselves back in the candy room!  Baknarla and Kenwrec were overcome by a compulsion to begin eating the candy, and then both began cowering in fear!
