Just to briefly fill you in

Kit, Serena, and Kai left their weapons and went into the guildhall. After a few bribes (from party treasure), the found out that the guild leaders have invested heavily in a stronghold while keeping the rest of the guild in the dark about their purpose. Excusing himself on a pretense, Kai managed to wedged a window to allow for easy access later.

He sneaked in after dark, discovered the guild's secret records and the ranger lady we've been looking for who was being kept prisoner in the guild hall. Garbing the ledgers and about 2k in gold, Kai managed to get the prisoner free with the help of an invisibility potion (also from party treasure).

Meanwhile, as the rest of the group was waiting for Kai they were attacked by an opponent they could not detect. First a smoke bomb exploded in the middle of the group nearly poisoning some members and sickening Sam. As the party vainly searched for their attacker using dancing lights to light the rooftops, Kit, expecting an arrow attack from the roofs, moved to take cover behind some crates. As luck would have it, the assassin, who had become invisible and was preparing to strike Kit (randomly determined) was hiding right next to the same crates. Kit managed to survive the assassination attempt but succumbed to the poison on the assassin's blade. The assassin, turning invisible again, escaped into the night but not before some of the party noticed a particular patch on her ninja pjs.

From the documents retrieved from the Rimrunners, Kai was able to confirm that the assassin was a member of the Balck Lotus ninja clan, who was hired to perform one assassination attempt on a member of our group by the guild.

Grabbing Po and leaving Kit to recuperate, in town the group proceeded to the stronghold. We defeated a giant wasp and a bunch of Tengu ninjas on the stairway to the stronghold and 3 flocks of ravens in the main hall. The big challenge came from a werebear guard captain who eventually killed Kai (brought back to life with hero points) by skillfully using using his reach to control the battle space and his bear animal companion to flank his opponents.

As we proceeded to search castle we found an animated corpse in a glass enclosure. Disregarding the advice from the rest of the party, the paladin broke open the glass enclosure thus releasing an infernal swarm which we fled since we could not possibly fight it. The swarm did not pursue and made it's own way out of the castle. Nearby we found Lute, minus some fingers. He was being tortured to provide information about us.

We proceed deeper under the castle and Kai, hopping over a stream to act as a scout, found some trolls. Avoiding the trolls for the moment the group found a room with the sword we were searching for down in a well, protected only by some easily defeated executioner's hoods. Between Jo's levitation ability and Kai slight of hand with a rope we pulled up the sword which Sam used to good effect on the trolls (after we rested for the night.

Expecting the final battle in the next room, we buffed up but found only an empty dojo which eventually lead to another dungeon area through a secret door. This area contained the treasure room protected by a very tough spell trap which Kai managed to set off. After fighting a couple of stone statues that nearly broke Kai's sword the group found the guide we've been looking for and an imprisoned winter wolf which we freed, despite the paladin's objections. Actually because of the paladin's objections. Jo is trying to make friends with the wolf.

The group then left the complex and is prepping to leave north through the Crown of the World.

You also leveled to 6th.

Thanks for adding that Kai!

Edit: And Kit, the DC for the assassination attempt was an 18. If you had failed that, you would have been dead Smile I believe they rolled an 18 or 19 for your save.

Kai also forgot to mention that after they finished the dungeon complex and as they get ready to depart, Ameiko would have told Kai again to stop leaving wood carvings. This time it was an image of her sitting on a heart shaped toilet with her pants down with the words " You looked Purty the other day" and Kai's name.

Kai is still looking for the real culprit.
