Jay was absent, but was there in spirit as his character adventured with the group.
-Steve disarmed a trap leading out of the kitchen.
-A shrine to Aroden was explored, where Tom finished a human zombie that had been disguised as a statue and had his bow blessed by a residue of Aroden's power.
-Looked at the E exit from the training room, but decided not to enter because it looked suspicious.
-Went through the E exit from the lounge, defeating a drowned undead and obtaining a magic spear. It was during this fight that Tom noticed his bow now bypassed the DR of undead enemies. Unforunately the rest of this passage was caved in and impassible.
-Returning to the suspicious passageway, it was realized that it was an illusionary level of water on top of a real level, realized when Tom, Jay and Josh fell into it.
-After defeating the trap, the party emerged into a lecture hall, where they were set upon by a pack of shadow creatures. After beating them, they holed up in the room to rest for the night.
-Entering an expansive chamber with a large coffin, the party reunited with the 'eccentric' magic user who ran from the previous floor, who turned out to be a female human named Zinfeldren. A long back-and-forth conversation began where Zin seemed to be unclear about who the party was or having fought them before, but was enraged when Tom mentioned something about farms. During the fight, an enlarged skeleton wounded a prone Josh and laid low Jay's character (also managed to survive). At a key point in the fight, Tom managed to confuse Zinfeldren, and the skeleton, by asking about ale. Towards the end of the fight, Zin attempted to escape in a cloud of fog, but was run down by Billy and impaled using the magic spear, then she vanished in a flash of light.
