The team decided to explore the door behind them and found a dusty stairwell descending into the depths.  On a landing below, the found another door.  On the other side was a clean, empty crypt.  The group moved in cautiously and found a gelatinous cube!  Gordi backed up to get a clear shot and was attacked by a second cube!  Bathory took a hit to the chest but shook off the paralysis!  The group ended up killing both the oozes and finding several valuable gems.  They also discovered a door leading out to another city street.

The group then went back upstairs and through the double doors to discover a web-shrouded library filled with books and scrolls written in a language Koehan could not decipher.  After standing around in the library a few moments, a pony-sized black widow spider dropped from the ceiling!  The monstrosity bite Gordi and injected him with venom!  The dwarf thrashed and frothed at the mouth for a moment before dropping to the ground in spastic death throes!  A second spider dropped out of a teeming nest and attacked Koehan who was able to fend it off and head back to the stairs.  The group was able to cut down one of the spiders, but the other drove its mandibles through Bathory’s armor and into his heart and lungs.  He died instantly, not even feeling the effects of the poison. 

In full retreat, the survivors dove through the library doors and slammed them shut behind them as the spider slammed into them trying to get through.  Fortunately, the stone doors are sturdy, and the spider cannot work the handles.  Temporarily safe, they debated what to do and fled back to the “safe house” created by Katarina’s wizard lock spell.
