Osborne, Hamish & Ssskevin healed up the group with what spells they had left.
Parker searched the room finding no more of interest and the group rested up.

Continuing into the forbidden zone they went to the next door, Parker checked the door finding the door trapped which was disabled. Erithian and Alidear could sense evil on the other side of the door. Tordek opened the door slowly, but saw nothing within the room; he could however hear some heavy breathing.

The paladins either sensed evil coming from three places within the room so parts of the room were evil or were invisible to them.

Hamish stared into the room and activated his True Seeing. Freaks with lots of eyes was all he could say, then they were attacked!

(Round 1)
Alidear took a shot where he thought they were but missed by a mile.

Gurt with Ancestor, confronted Tordek’s one and carved some large chunks out of it.

(Round 2)
Alidear channelled all of his divine will into the thing making it reel.
The tripped one got up and got smacked from everyone around it for doing so, it gazed down the corridor, the wolf and Earnest threw up. The thing switched targets from Tordek to Osborne and his eyes were impaired while Tordek’s sight was restored.
The remaining one, passed through and Licked Parker’s eyes making her squeal in horror but her sight remained.

Tordek with his eyesight restored lashed at his thing felling it with a few blows, it crumbled into dust. Osborne’s sight returned.
Aslan charged into the remaining one and got his eyes licked before he could attack; he lost his sight, which might have been why he missed with all the swipes.
Ssskevin cast Flame Strike at it, the thing avoided some of the pillar but still yowled at the edge of it.
Gurt moved around the corner to engage to it and hit it a good blow.

Osborne healed himself and moved along with the rest of the group, moving down the corridor they came to a T-junction, looking left they saw a door, to the right the corridor went on for a bit before turning to the right. The paladins could detect a large amount of evil behind it.

They opened the door and found a small room, magic came from beyond it, checking the room revealed that the wall nearest to the magic source was bricked up, the Ancestor smashed through it revealing a larger room with two large vases sealed in wax.
