This session opened up with the group helping free the slaves in the room that they just killed the fire salamanders in. The slaves did not know much information and just wanted to escape and go back home to their families. One slave stayed back saying he knew his way around the mine and could help guide the group for 50 gold. After some negotiation they got it down to 40. The group then began to explore deeper into the mine.
In the next room they could hear the sounds of people mining and slave masters walking about. The group decided to try and stealth in so Fox cast without a trace. Everyone was able to sneak in but Krangor. Thinking quick on his feet he walked up to the surprised slave masters and said he was part of a convoy sent for by Zolto the leader of the fire giants. He was able to convince the slave masters of this fact without a shred of doubt in their heads. He asked for Zoltos location and was given it. He then asked if he could get a map of the area as he was new to the mine. The slavers sent him to the scribe located in the overseers office. Krangor continued on the path to the scribes office.
Along the way he saw a fire giant dangling a dwarf over a pool of molten iron. The dwarf refused to scream for mercy saying he would not besmirch his families name. Krangor went up to the fire giant and tried to persuade him from killing the dwarf. The fire giant put the drawf back on the floor and then asked who Krangor was, and Krangor replied he was a convoy sent for by Zolto. The fire giant replied surprisingly saying "My dad sent for you?". Krangor unaware that this was the son of Zolto tried to tried to keep the ruse alive. Luckily the son felt lazy and did not feel like investigating into this odd man in front of him more. Krangor, whose armor was now full of nervous sweat, continued on his path to the Overseers room.
Inside the overseers room Krangor found the scribe and again told him he was from a convoy. The scribe didn't fully trust Krangor. The overseer said he would call for Zolto to have Krangor meet him. Krangor then began to befriend the scribe showing him the powers of his stump cup. They began to get drunk in be merry! In the middle of thier drinking Krangor and the scribe heard a large crash happen outside the room. The scribe was curious what made the noise and went to go investigate. On his way out his locked the door leaving Krangor stuck in the overssers office. Krangor began to ransack the place taking any treasure he could and trying to find a way to esacpe.
Meanwhile…. the rest of the group continued their stealthy pursuit. Melfias opened up his bag of holding and placed Galthetes inside so his gill did not get dried out by the excessively hot mine. They tried to stay far enough away from Krangor to not get noticed, but close enough to see his position in case shit went south. While traveling along the walls of the foundry Gob was spotted. Using his quick whit Gob cast a major illusion or a bunch of stalagmites and rubble falling and crushing him. (This was the sound the scribe heard) The slavers were very curious about this falling rubble and threw a nearby dwarf slave at it. the slave passed through the illusion sending the slavers into high alert. Melfias knew shit was about to go down and opened the bag so Galthetes could come out and play. Gansett and Fox decided to try and even the odds.
While the enemies were still surprised, Fox started the skirmish by laying down a trap of spiked growths at the feet the of the 4 ogre slavers. Gansett then banished one of the ogres to the nether realm. Gob blessed the party giving them a slight edge. Galthetes began his journey closer to the ogres as his twin cutlasses thirsted for blood. He launched a crossbow bolt at one of the ogres. Fox made one of the ogres her Oath and launched an arrow hitting him in the side. Melfias attempted to use phantasmal force on the near by fire giant that was Zoltos son. He was unaffected. After all of this it was time for the slavers to have their turn. The 3 remaining ogres began their turn in the spiked growth and took some damage from it. They began to walk around the spiked growth choosing to going after the nearest combatant, Galthetes. Zoltos son knew it was now his time to shine. With an evil glint in his eye he ripped off a bead from his necklace and threw it in the middle of the interloping group of adventurers. Upon impact the bead exploded into a giant fireball harming everyone. Fox absorbed the elements to lessen the damage and fused the fire from the fireball into the tip of her next arrow head. The rag tag team of adventures then got a chance for their rebuttal.
Fox started off the flurry by shooting her fire laced arrow through the body of her aothed ogre. It was to much for the hulking beast and the ogre was soon able to meet its god. With the Ogres on the edge of the spiked growth Galthetes got a devilish idea. He ran up next to both the ogres and slashed them so menacingly their became frightened of him. Gansett then got to the same side as Galthetes and unleashed a blast of eldritch power pushing each of the ogres into the jagged brambles causing puncture wounds into the legs of the ogres. Gob then completed the combo by unleashing a lightning bolt of pure power through both of the ogres causing their bodies to become lifeless husks of electric charge.
With only one ogre remaining, the son of Zolto knew he had to even the odds. He used his power to summon 4 molten mephits to assist. Gob was ready for this though and entrapped the 4 mephits and remaining ogre into a box of pure hentai pleasure and pain using by summoning Evard's black tentacles. Fox then sent Pantherny in to finish off the restrained ogre while it got all of its orifices violated. Gansett did not want the son of Zolto to escape so he ran up as close as he could to the hulking fire giant and cast hold monster to keep hi in place. When he did this he lost his concentration on the banished ogre and he returned to the mortal plane. Fox and panthery took care of two more mephits while one ran away and sacrificed its self to damage Galthetes. Galtetes, Gob, and Melfias took care of the returned ogre with ease. All that was left was to take care of the paralyzed son. Gansett released some finger gun magic and was able to scorch the skin of the giant. Fox wanting to get in on the fun released an arrow and some how completely missed an enemy that does not move. Luckily she had Panterny to back her up and he was able to run up and get some clean swipes in. The fire giant was soon able to break out of the paralysis and made a run for it. The rest of the group gave chase. Gob as always wanted to rip the cord of his wand of pure fun. He summoned an elephant that appeared next to the fleeing giant. Fox launched more arrows, but failed to hit the huge target. Galthetes poked him a few more times with his cross bow. Gob was getting tired of these shaningans and decided to unleash another lightning bolt. It was able to bring the giant on the brink of death and pantherny was more then happy to finish the job. He pounced on the fleeing fire giant and ripped his throat out like a cuddly McGruber. The son of Zolto was dead and the group while exhausted was not to hurt. They now needed to find their friend Krangor.
Krangor during this fight had rummaged through all of the overseers belongings. He was able to find some gems of value, a bunch of plans that was written in giant, and a secret button that unlocked the door. He opened the door hoping to return to his comrades.
