(Saturday, December 1st)
In the secret tunnels beneath the inner city of Fitzleon, the party encounters Wesley “Weasel” Chelton, and several other members of the Thieves’ Guild. They invite the party to help take part in a heist of the Royal Treasury Auxiliary. In the middle of resting, Dulin appears in a flash of light, aided by the Red Dragon Eye given to her by Klorphax... for a price.
The party is told the Thieves will handle the side vaults, and their object is the main vault. The party will have to figure out how to access it.
Arriving through a secret underground entrance, the party splits off. They fight some small golem sentries, but in the midst of combat, the sounds they make (especially Knolan’s loud singing) attract the attention of guards in the other room. Richard tries to hold them off by tossing in the Orb of the Cube, but slips while throwing and manages to shatter it on the wrong side of the door. Thankfully he is able to force it into the room with the guards and close the door behind.
The party defeats the golems and ransacks the offices to find some clues and a blue key. They then venture into the guard room to find the Cube has eaten the guards… but is still hungry. They also find that two of the treasure chests are not, in fact, filled with treasure, but actually chest-shaped sticky monsters. A battle ensues once again, and they are victorious, added by the late arriving Haladorr and Snake-Slayer (who were lost in the tunnels.)
The party grabs a yellow key and runs upstairs to find the head guardsman: a multi-eyed creature who seem to be linked to a statue in the middle of the room. After being frustrated with the creature’s ability to fly and the statue’s inability to be hurt, Draube Zerk finally finds his way there and starts throwing alchemists fire while Malevictus grabs an amulet off the creature and Jikari fires off as many shots as he can. The party of 9 defeats the creature and recovers a red key.
In the next room is the main vault, sealed by a lock with three colored keyholes and a 1-9 dial. After pondering on the clue given downstairs, Knolan eventually figures out the code, and unlocks the vault as the party is drenched in gold. They also notice a Yellow Dragon Eye, which is quickly scooped up. A booming voice commands: “FREE ME!”
Returning downstairs to find the Thieves, the party discovers that Weasel has betrayed them to the Green Talon, and they are forced to run into the tunnels again.
