Aided by a crude map found on the back of a Tian paper-fan, Traftar tracked the skeletons through the swamp and back to their lair in the Brinestump caverns. After receiving concussion from falling out of a tree, Sandru fearlessly leads his troop into the cavern. There he scared a spider back up into it lair, lead the group into an ambush by half a dozen skeletons. Senja found the last surviving goblin of the licktoad-tribe hiding within a treasure chest filled with fireworks. Feeling guilty over slaughtering the tribe members that survived they spared poor little Chuffy. Creeping into the final chamber Senja is challenged by the leader of the skeletons a skeletal samurai wielding wakizashi. A deadly battle follows, with the Samurai cutting down, Senja and then Traftar and Izati in quick deadly strokes. Fortunately, Sandru uses in wand of cure light wounds to great effect to save the lives of his companions. Chuffy used the distraction of the battle to make off with a small treasure chest (Koya’s jewellery box). Senja immediately over cover came his guilt on slaughtering a village worth of goblin’s and hunted down the fleeing goblin, who became a snack for a giant spider.
The skeletons have stored the whole cause of their obsession in this cavern, locked away inside a large jade and cherry wood chest. The chest weighs just over 50 pounds with all of its contents, and is worth 250 gp if undamaged. It’s obvious that many objects (mostly fireworks and potions) have been removed from numerous slots in the chest’s velvet-lined interior— the handiwork of the Licktoad goblins. However, the chest still holds five potions of cure light wounds, two potions of cure moderate wounds, three potions of lesser restoration, a ring of climbing, a wand of identify with 19 charges, a masterwork chain shirt, a masterwork cold iron wakizashi, 11 Desnan candles, and four skyrockets, in addition to 3,820 sp, 421 gp, and various pieces of fine jewellery worth 560 gp total.
Traftar also recovered another masterwork chain shirt and a magical wakizashi (whispering shrike) from the undead samurai that you defeated.
