Session Three- The Sea Cave.
The Adventurers finish ridding the Manor of ratmen, finding piles of straw and young rat-lings in the kitchen. Falstaff surmises that the ratmen were attempting to build a warren above ground and right in the midst of the human village. He notes this to be very strange behavior for ratmen. As they leave the Manor a representative of Count Granville summons them and offers to hire their services yet again. The Count has taken in a Cleric of Zelos who claims to have been shipwrecked in a similar manner to the adventurers. Zandor explains that he was pulled from the water by lizardmen and held captive in a cave near the sea. He managed to escape with several others, but most were killed in the attempt. The Count wishes the bold adventurers to venture to the sea cave and investigate.
The lone remaining Reptileman proves hard to kill. Several times Ivan uses magic to slam the Lizard into the rocks at the edge of the sea. The Reptileman looses his sword in one such attack, yet he pulls himself out of the water and continues the fight. Owen, Yaka and Faltaff must work together the bring the brute down. Meanwhile Falstaff begins to have blurred vision and the shakes. His temperature burns as he begins to reel on wobbly legs and the venomous bite of the Giant Lizard begins to fester.
