The party explores some more and finds itself in a sticky situation.
Unfortunately, the recorder ate session 3 of the Elemental Band.
To give a summary, the party interrogated their prisoner and found out a little information about the abbey, etc. In exploring a room off the main room where they fought the previous episode, they found a concealed passage and opened that up.
They were beset by more manes and fiendish rats, but they held them off at the door and eventually killed them. The party continued exploring through a maze of passages encountering several traps. The Rogue in the lead fell into several pits covered by an illusion. Doors were also trapped. The Monk opened a door that caused a rock to fall, but missed him. Later, he wandered away from the party slightly to a corner that had two doors. He opened one door to find himself staring face to face with a heavy crossbow that missed him. He then opened the other door, only to find another heavy crossbow that hits him and drops him. The barbarian half orc brought him back though.
The party continued to explore, and the rogue started using caltrops tossed down a corridore to check for illusions. He attracted the attention of another swarm of rats and manes, backed up by a crystal statue of a minotaur. The Barbarian enlarged himself and held off the monsters at the edge of a pit that was in between the party and the creatures. One grease spell by the wizard, and many rats and manes fell to their entrapment in the pit or were smashed by the barbarian even though the barbarian was grieveously wounded. The statue was smashed to powder by the combined firepower of the party.
The party then went back to the main room to rest for the night and recovered the spell book of the wizard that they took prisoner.
