At the barricade Smudge rushes forward hitting two goblins behind the barrier with the reach of his sword. Tirla leaps over the barricade and stabs one goblin tackling it to the ground. Tirla manages to kill the goblin and Smudge climbs over the barricade and skewers another goblin. Tirla tumbles between two goblins slicing one’s back open, killing it. The last goblin runs down the tunnels in to the darkness. The party gives chase but turns into the first room not sure which way the goblin ran.
After looking through all the rooms they arrived at the main chamber. Tirla peeks around the corner and see about 5 goblins, firing a sling stone at one of them. They threw daggers back at here. After Tirla retreats back around the corner the group decides to rush the goblins lead by Smudge. As Smudge rushed out he is bombarded by over a dozen daggers severely injuring him in several places. The rest of the group followed and are rushed by a dozen goblins. Smudge is hit by two war hammer blows and falls to the ground bleeding and unconscious with a broken leg and head wound. Tirla hits the goblin leader with several sling stones as he tossed 3 vipers towards the group. Smudge cut one viper in half before going down. Tirla fought the the other viper for the entire combat cutting it twice before Taras helped her finish it off. Taras was bitten on the arm by the viper and turned pale and weak with sever swelling in his arm. Gorn healed Smudge twice keeping him alive and reviving him to continue the fight. As Smudge, Gorn and Taras drop several goblins, Gorn enlarges Smudge and he slices two goblins down and the remaining four flee down the tunnel exiting the room, with the leader leading the retreat.
Searching the room they find 200sp and 6gp on the goblin bodies. In a carved wooden snake they find a hollow section which contains two bags and a small wooden casket. The casket contained three glass vials and two gems (tiny bloodstone and small rough cut violet garnet) in a small bag. The other bags contains 360gp in a less moldy smelling bag and a 718sp and 176gp in an old moldy bag. After searching the rest of the room the party leaves the way they came and rests in the forest.
The next morning they heal and return to the caves and carefully searched the entire cave complex. They discover that the tunnel the goblins fled down is an exit tunnel and they notice a section of the tunnel that the goblin path avoids and they avoid it as well. Also in the tunnels is a large hole that descends farther then Smudge can see. There is a faint metallic smell and the sound of flowing water coming from the hole.
After not finding any more gold they decided to rest again. The next morning they set out back to Fyodorll’s camp and setup camp just a little distance away to rest again before confronting her about the horses…
