• Inside the Obsidian cave, Caeldryn shifts into a small mouse to spy ahead for the group. She discovers a large room where battered hostages are being held by an evil spriggan named Doomboots. She also finds a room where a lone female dwarf is being assaulted by a spriggan guard. Filled with fury, she shifts into a panther and attacks him, ripping out his throat. She then tends to the female dwarf’s wounds, and learns that the dwarf’s husband is being tortured in the main room by Doomboots.
• The group attacks Doomboots and his cronies to save the hostages.
• Eventually they win, killing the evil Doomboots, and freeing the abused hostages. Many are very gravely injured however, so the group agrees to take them to a settlement that is supposedly nearby where they can find medical attention.
