They get tangled in some vines, Run an award maze, Fight off a siren, Our Drow stopped a potentially hazardous fight with a Were-bear who was afraid that they would kill her cub, all while figuring out which door lead to which hall.
Shandra the friendly brownie helped them out with a few words of advice to the Tiefling and taking away the cures on the pearls.
She even dropped them in a nice safe grove, so essentially they were lost.
Wandering and arguing a bit they stumbled on a ruined house. Using all caution and stealth they could muster, they stumbled upon 13 dolls. All seeming old and near ruins.
Kaleb noticed one doll seemed to be watching them.
“Hello” came a haunting girlish voice. Each member brought their weapons to bear. Some conversation and they learned her name was Magna, all she could remember was waking up on the “Dark Day” . She had no one to talk to or play with and took a liking to our Karnor the 1/2 orc. He was non to thrilled but let her sit in his pack as they walked.
Finally finding a road our party sets off. Off in the distance they can see a fire, looks like a camp fire! Then they hear the arguing and the crying and ..Howling?
