The party go down the stairs into ancient preservation and burial chambers for the priests of Dol Arrah. Apart from a short battle against a gray ooze, they find little of interest apart from stairs going further down.
As they descend the stairs they see a light off ahead and in the light they can see some lizardfolk watching something off to the side in rapt attention. They also hear the sound of drums. Tito and Layna decide to sneak down and see what is going on, but Tito slips on a damp stair, landing badly and alerting one of the lizardfolk to their presence.
Tito rushes in to attack before they can react, but realises that there are actually more lizardfolk that he saw from the stairwell. He is surrounded and cut down. Layna rushes down the stairs to try and save him, but is attacked herself and cannot get to them. The battle appears to be more than they can handle and the party consider retreat, but that option is removed from them when what appears to be a lizardfolk shaman casts a summoning spell, filling the stairwell behind them with 8 giant lizards. However Layna manages to battle her way to the shaman and hits it, causing it to loose concentration on the spell. The lizards disappear. But not before they have caused awful damage to the heroes at the back. They fall of the shaman dispirits the rest of the lizardfolk and the party eventually defeat them.
When they examine Tito’s body they find that he is badly wounded and unconcious, but not dead. Morythas is able to heal him somewhat, but the entire party is in a bad way. They decide to find a bolt hole and rest. However as they discuss this, Morythas is poking around in the chamber. He disturbs something and the entire chamber is filled with a high pitched screeching sound. This attracts a carrion crawler, which they manage to fight off, but then they head back upstairs, battered but wiser and rest the night.
