The team decided they needed to recoup their spells, so they rested a while before heading out toward the tower.  As they approached, giant bats swooped down to the attack!  Some of the party were bitten, but the bats didn’t prove much of a challenge.

The group then ran up the steps to the tower and pushed through the great bronze doors.  In the entryway awaited nearly half a dozen Bloodhead hobgoblins!  Two of the hobgoblins were slain in moments, but the others put up a strong resistance.  Gordi found himself accosted by several at once and was severely injured in the ensuing melee.  Magic missiles flew about, arrows sailed through the air, and blades and hammers landed telling blows.  Finally, the hobgoblins were taken down.

After nursing a few wounds and searching the bodies, the team stormed on further into the tower.  They found an ornate room filled with statues and a fountain.  From behind a curtain emerged an ice wolf!  It breathed an icy blast and charged about the room.  However, the team proved particularly effective against it, landing some of the best blows they had ever swung!  The wolf stood no chance despite landing some devastating strikes of its own.  In the end, it could not withstand the party’s combined might.
