Exploring Cassan's Keep

After finishing off the goblin guards, the party took a quick rest before heading down the passageway the goblins had been fleeing to. Entering a room that looked more like an excavation site, they were confronted by several goblins digging for treasure accompanied by dangerous guard drakes.

However this also allowed a goblin sharpshooter to cut and run when the battle seemed lost. The drow, still battered from the previous encounter, was lying in wait and managed to mortally wound the goblin, but not before it had raised the alarm for the rest of the lair…
