The team returned to the tower and decided to avoid the library.  They ascended a level and found lots of beds with polished iron manacles hanging above them.  One had a foot locker, and Levi picked the lock and opened it to reveal some coins, a silver belt, and some equipment with the Sukiskyn’s brand emblazed upon it! 

The group went up another level and opened the door from the stairwell.  On the other side was an empty room, but they could hear voices.  Suddenly, the voices stopped, the far door opened, and a skinny man in yellow robes briefly appeared and sneered at the team before slamming the door shut.  A disembodied voice cried, “Look out!” and a loud bellowing erupted from the empty air.  The team advanced into the room to discover anyone moving across the threshold turned invisible!  The group stumbled about a bit, running into walls and tripping over a bound man.

Levi determined the man to be Stephan, and he began untying him with haste.  Meanwhile, some massive monster stomped forward, bellowed again, and viciously attacked Garadal.  The halfling was able to sink an arrow into his unseen opponent before fleeing.  Levi got Stephan up and moving before they ran into a large muscular figure and fell down. Levi stabbed the unseen entity only to learn it was Valor!  Fortunately, the dagger glanced off his armor.

Valor took his two-handed sword and broke one of the glass walls to pieces which caused the invisible entities to begin blinking in and out of sight.  This revealed a massive sword-wielding minotaur!  Several of the group rushed across the room to the far doorway but cut themselves on the huge glass shards from the shattered walls.  Katarina was able to cast wizard lock on the stone door, and the group piled behind it and slammed it shut.  Arminious’ knowledge of lore clued them into the massive strength of minotaurs, so they are unsure how long the door will hold if the beast tries to pursue!
