Session Two- The Manor
After ridding the Laughing Jester of ratmen, the bold adventurers tend to wounds and equipment while a grateful Marcel lavishes them with food and drink. Word of their deed has been sent to the Count, who seeks them out and hires the party to further investigate the ratmen menace. Without haste they venture back to the lost Dwarven halls and to the ladder that leads to the unknown.....
Eshelius takes a hard blow from a flail, slips on a pool of blood and falls. Still, the ratmen are easily dispatched with the heroes none the worse for wear. Owen, Ivan and Yaka search the hall learning that the manor belongs to Sir Achille, a local Champion. The crate from the basement supposedly contained spoils taken from bandits that the Knights dispatched. The dead man on the floor seems to have been a guard or footman. Meanwhile Falstaff and Eshelius venture up the stairs.
Eshelius rushes the bed, his dual blades flashing as he dispatches two rats before they know he is there.
Falstaff kills one just as readily then pulls out his bow to cover Eshelius' advance. The Ranger is momentarily befuddled when one ratman slashes about wildly with a dagger, but taking a step back he easily puts an arrow into it's eye.
