Toilday, the 5th of Desnus, 4715
The door opens and two large orcs, two dire wolves, and a hill giant walk in. We open up our doors and Tira fires her bow at the hill giant while Shamus summons a dire boar, which attacks the wolves. Sif attacks the hill giant from the doorway, and I attack her from the wall.
When the first dire boar dies, Shamus summons another one. Still the hill giant and the orcs are close enough to hurt us, and our dwindling supplies help us stand strong against them just long enough. It is a hard-won long fight.
Tira carefully closes the door to the outside and we go through the door our enemies used. The room beyond is mostly taken up by a large cage. Under it, pace two manticores. They beg in the common tongue for freedom. We agree to let them go, only after we leave.
We go around the cage and up the stairs. In the giantesses bedroom, we find a giant dress, the rest of the geode map, and the head of a skeleton in part of a collapsed wall. The place is in disarray. As we poke about, we see that there is activity in the courtyard. Our fight has drawn attention, but few seem willing to do more than knock at the door.
We head back down and, after the rest of the party has returned to the basement, I free the manticores. They spring on the dead bodies as if they are starving. I leave them to their grisley feast and sink down through the floor to join the party. We then take our leave of this place the same way we came in – through the burrow spell.
