The group heads back to the Underhalls. They search unexplored passages near the Drow Temple looking for the Jester. Silvaris hears metal scraping from behind a door in a passage off of the throne room. Vilnullas opens the stone portal and is greeted by a large hall filled with bugbears. The group engages the creatures with spells and blades. Some of the bugbears flee from the room. The only bugbears that remain are either dead or slumbering from a Sleep spell. Nolia and Uldred dispatch the bugbears that are not yet dead.
In another room Corthen opens a door to find four goblins playing dice and one big goblin guarding the door. The large goblin grabs Corthen in a bear hug and then morphs into grayish amorphous being. Corthen is held tight and is being squeezed by his foe. The rest of the party engages the goblins and the gray being. The party rescue their friend from the clutches of the shapeshifting creature and dispatch the goblins. Tellazar learns that one of the die that the goblins had bears some type of enchantment. The adventurers gather their goblin spoils and retreat to the storeroom the sometimes use for camping.
