After slaying the spider, the party continues down a path into a cave. A bat was slain. Poor bat.
A silence falls over the region as the bats from the cave dissipate. The sound of a crying girl can be heard from the cave. Exploration of the cave reveals a small hole in the ground from where the sound is coming from. The Skylnch successfully collapses the entire roof/floor and we enter the lower cavern. The girl runs in fear from the party, as we are all rather monstrous.
Pado leads the group in a “diplomatic mission” to speak with the girl (named tulia), but she vanishes into a pool within the cavern. Ursanguous uses a spell that allows him to follow her and performs a magic trick to calm her down and see past his appearance. The party then leads her out of the caves and back to the ships, collecting the metal from a meteor on the way. They then return to the island to finish exploration after resting.
While exploring for another cube to contact the ancient ones, the party encounters a giant black widow, the rogue is poisoned in the combat, but the party prevails. They then find a magic ring and the other cube. After speaking with their new “contact,” the party returns to the ship in a comical fashion.
The party then leaves the island and continues on it’s journey, with the new cube, little girl and Pado as additions to their adventure.
