Then, the guards watching the trapdoor in the field are found dead around the hole. The party, accompanied by three of the townguard head down the hole to explore. About 40' down the hole, the party finds and kids three giant spiders that have built a nest there. Continuing down the whole, the tunnels widen and become square, and the party comes to a set of double doors. Forcing them open, the party is attacked by zombies and a zombie dog. The party destroys the undead filth, and decides to rest. Closed double doors at the other side of the room hold back unimaginable horrors, yet unseen. And this is just the beginning of our tale...
Giovanni Piazzi, Moriarty Kellser, Amadius Sorrento, Valandil Luinwe, and Squeedlbrock Starlinblinkbau IV gathered at the Wilding Bar in the City of Order. It was late in the evening, and the bar was sparsely populated. There was a female bartender serving drinks, a female bard was playing music, there was a table with three farm owners discussing business, a priest from the Temple of Order and Law eating some food, a one-footed begger looking for handouts, and a very sad man sitting by himself. The group of young men, an elf, and a gnome had come to the bar at the bequest of Venkat Matsu. Venkat was the reason the five men knew each other in the first place. At least five times he had called them together like he had tonight. Sometimes he brought them together simply to eat, drink, converse, and have fun. Other times, he had brought them together for a bit of trouble. They never exactly knew what would happen when Venkat asked them to gether, but they knew it would always be interesting.
The members of the group, one by one, began to notice dogs barking wildly outside. It sounded as though something were disturbing all of the dogs in town. Moriarty went to the front door of the Wilding Bar, and looked out into the town square. He immediately spotted small dark figures darting from building to building, and knew something was completely amiss in the City of Order. He stepped out of the door, and the dark figures spotted him. As they came into the torch light of the town square, Moriarty saw that they were 3 or 4 feet tall, walked on their hind legs like men, had dog-like faces, and crude knives and shorts swords in their hands. They moved forward and started into a full charge on Moriarty...a charge he met in turn with a charge of his own. By this time, other members of the group were coming out the tavern door, and began to take defensive positions behind the walls of a well.
