The party gathers in the room with the locked door. Torgosh, Ta’kel and Spradlock count to three and simultaneously charge through the shabby barrier, sending splinters of rotting driftwood cascading out in all directions. Before anything can be discerned about the dimly lit interior of the passage ahead, there is a sudden cacophonous chorus of shrieks and chattering sounds as a massive swarm of bats comes swooping out of the opening. They disappear towards the cave entrance, and everyone silently prays that the Spirit is far away, for if Imryn Tarr is anywhere in the vicinity, their presence is now known.
Leaving Aramas in the previous room, they proceed carefully, followed by the hostages who are too afraid to remain behind, down a short hallway which bends to the right and opens into a small cave. Rhomack grabs a torch from the wall before entering, and holding it up in the dark, the group can see that there are two large pools of water on the opposite side, one to the right and one to the left. Aside from the water and a large accumulation of bat guano, the cave is empty.
Levna stays close to the middle of the group. Though she’s curious to see what might be in the depths, she has no desire to become dinner for some strange monster lurking under the surface.
