The session picked up with the characters already in combat with three groups of skeletons. Creng was down and unconscious and several other party members were wounded by the skate-like creatures before they drove them off.
Uggmar continued to hold the door on the western group, preventing a breakout and only allowing a few to engage. Gwythian backed him up with his bow and Rouen summoned some more hounds to attack the bottled-up skeletons from their flanks. To the north, Stranger could hear another group of skeletons approaching.
As they prepared to engage this new threat, a skate-like creature appeared and attacked Vargr. Cayuga used Quack of Doom to stun the northern group of skeletons before they could close into melee.
As Vargr and Stranger engaged the skate-like creature, another appeared to the south and attacked Argus.
Stranger took a hard hit from the skate and Duycken moved up to take his place on the line as he withdrew. Argus also moved away from the skate that had attacked it and Rouen ordered an illusionary hound to engage it.
The skeletons, free from their stun, joined the battle to the north as Duycken, Vargr, Gwythian and some illusionary hounds held them off. To the south, Uggmar continued to hold the door. Vargr found himself flanked by the skate-like creatures.
They shifted their focus to the skates and Duycken managed to kill the one to the north as Stranger used goodberries to heal himself and Argus.
Argus rejoined the fray as Stranger ran down to heal Creng. Uggmar, the hounds, and Argus were starting to take a heavy toll on the skeletons as the primary melee fighters worked on the remaining skate.
Stranger and Creng rejoined the fight and finished the skate with a combination of Father of Swords and Creng’s bow.
After mopping up the remaining skeletons, they found the corpses of the two skates, which had turned invisible when they died, and extracted poison from their stingers. They returned to the surface to rest
