Harken’s Heroes continued to make their way through the back entrance of the Horned Hold. They fought an ancient minotaur blacksmith and his minions, dodging the attacks from his necrotic forges. Unable to discover a way across the shattered bridge to the northern bastion, the group headed west. Halfway across the bridge they we swarmed by spiders, though they made quick work of the young arachnids. After breezing through some servant’s quarters, they entered a large great hall surrounded by terrifying creatures. Discovering they were only stuffed and mounted monsters, the group was soon attacked by the rooms true terrors. A giant spider attacked from the roof while a swarm of it’s young poured out of a bloated beholder. More spiders and some centipedes also joined the attack. The smart members of the group poured damage onto the giant spider and then moped up the rest of the bugs with relative ease. Opting to ignore the signs of inhabitance across the remaining bridge, the party stormed the remaining bastion only to be stopped short by a solid door. Thanks to an inventive tactic by Scarab the door was opened. The party took out their frustrations on the duergar and constructs within, letting none escape alive.
