Scene #1.1.a (The Plump Pig)
xp: none; Treasure: none;
The party met each other and Giles, who offered them a job as his hirelings to help him find his two lost friends. (Dyre and Amanda) He offered them his sponsorship to help them get their own Explorer’s guild licenses should they be successful. He also offered them 90% of all of the treasure the group found below, provided that the Explorer’s get their first choice of magic items to buy, and he gets the second choice to buy.
Halosi was a little nervous about this whole arrangement, but Abbie told her about a library that is rumored to be below, guarded by undead that cannot be turned by the holy men and women that adventure below.
In the end all of the characters decided to pursue this opportunity.
Scene #1.1.b (Two Giant Centipedes)

Scene #1.1.d (Wandering Monster: Goblin warrior)

treasure found: Axiomus gathered 15 cp
A lone goblin in the dark who wanted the party to leave the dagger where they found it and clear out. They chased him in the dark, but he got away for a bit. Once he was spotted, the party made short work of him. He had very little and seemed like he might be a loner.
Scene #1.1.e (Transition from Descent to Goblin Lair)
Goblin Adept; Goblin Alchemist (2); Goblin Tough (2); Goblin Warrior (4)
xp: 2740 total
treasure found: 53sp, 114cp, broken short swords, lousy short bows, lousy arrows, small pouch with 15gp
The party encountered a well defended choke point. The goblins called out to them to leave the area of the BlackBiters, but the party refused. The party attempted to negotiate for passage. The goblins suggested that if they could eat the dwarf, that could work. The dwarf refused and a great battle was engaged.
Thifal Magadukr and Lorran nearly dropped, but in the end the party was successful, thanks to a timely critical from Giles (whom they are liking less and less) and Nisa’s amazing accurate arrows. (When she can see a target)
The Adept fled and escaped. Once the drums started from deeper in the lair, the party decided that Giles two friends could not have possibly gone this way and they fled back into the descent area to continue the search.
