The group set watch and tried to get some sleep.  At dusk, the team was attacked by a pair of rhagodessa!  The spider-like monsters snagged hold of several members of the party.  Koehan cast web but caught Garadal in it instead!  The team landed lots of blows quickly, and Levi and Stephan were able to take them down.  After a short rest, they cut Garadal free.

The team then traveled on to the Vault of the Elders.  Levi searched the door for traps and found none.  Koehan cast knock from the key and then cast continual light from it.  He opened the door, and the team entered.  Levi searched a stone sarcophagus for traps and did not find any.  The group began to remove the lid, and the dust in the room began to swirl about and coalesce into a solid form!  A swaddled Hutaakan corpse rose up and lurched to “lift” to attack the team!  Arminious and Katarina were paralyzed by the creature’s attacks.  The party learned only magical weapons and spells could harm it, so they moved in with magical blades and took it down!
