"She obviously wanted Rahasia's body, but she may have find another in the meantime, so I would not count too much on her not being around here", Hasan says.
"We could try destroying the old bodies in the coffin, even if I doubt it could be so simple", Alki says.

"It's more probable that anything we do with the coffin will warn the witches about our presence - Kesh says - so the question is, should we do it and prepare an ambush here for them, or it is better to try to procede undetected to see if we can caught them unaware?"
"That is indeed a good question - Bellithiel says - but it's hard to decide what the right answer could be".
"We could also do both things if we split. Some could open the coffins while others may proceed with caution, maybe catching the witches while they come here", Taran says.
"Yes but there is the risk they will come here and face half our group while the other half misses them. Probably it is better to stay united", Rahasia objects.

I agree with Rahasia. We are not that strong that we should split our group. I say we proceed and try to find the witches.

The group decides to let the coffin untouched and proceed to other rooms. You cautiously return back to the first room with the rubble and go west from there. There is an arched corridor which goes west. The floors, walls, and 30- foot-tall arched ceiling are all coated with a thick layer of black soot. B ronze double doors are at the west end of the corridor. There are two other doors north and south, made of wood and badly scorched. Sunggu also finds a secret door on the northern wall.
Rahasia and Bellithiel decide to try the northern door first. It leads to a corridor with six doors, three each side. They are all prison cells. The elves start examining them and Lucius, Bofar and Kesh go to the southernmost east. There is a matress in it, and under it you find a silver bracelet, with the name "Merisa" engraved inside.
But before you can tell the others, you hear warnings and noises outside. You get out in the corridor, where Hasan, Rahasia and Alki are retreating, followed by two big spiders more than 2 meters long. Hasan parries the attack of a spider, but the other jumps to the throath of Alki, biting him. The elf soon falls down, his skin rapidly becoming pale.

Lucius moves forward to engage the spider that bit Alki.

Bofar readies himself in case there comes an opening he can use to attack either spider.

You are among the first exiting the cells so Lucius and Bofar can attack the spider, and Lucius cut it on a leg, while the creature avoids Bofar's blow.
Hasan and Rahasia attack the other, but the creature's skin is strong enough to resist the blows. Then others arrive too from behing the spiders. Kesh, Bellithiel and Taran attack too, but they too do not obtain much. Baik instead attacks the spider against Lucius and Bofar, hurting him on the back, spilling ichor on the floor. The creature hisses in rage and jumps on the wall, biting Baik violently, sending him down.
The other one tries to bit Rahasia, but fails.
The spiders are now surrounded but even if all the others are out of the cells by now, only a limited number can engage them in the corridor, and the others cannot shoot arrows because they could hit you.

Lucius takes advantage of the distraction provided by Baik to hack at the spider.

If there is an opening, Bofar will attack the spider. If not, he stays out of the way.

Rahasia hits the first spider with the sword, breaking its head in half. Lucius tries to hit the spider, but the creature turns around fast. Lucius slips on the ichor on the floor and falls down, right under the mandibles of the creature. Fortunately for him, Bofar and Taran both hit the spider, on the head and the back, killing it before it could bite Lucius.
There is little time for celebration, Kesh and Suchi immediately run to Alki and Baik, using clerical magic on them. Both had already stopped breathing, and only clerical magic takes them back from the maws of death.
"I did not want to kill them, they were just defending their lair. Unfortunately there was no room to let them go", Rahasia says.
"Here, come!" Benar says, pointing to a cell where there are other elf. In the cell the female elves Mati and Kepala are removing the chains from the arm of another ragged female elf, with the help of the thieves, the halfling Sunggu and the elf Jujur.
"Miryala, what are you doing here?", Rahasia says, recognizing the female elf.
"I was kidnapped shortly after Alki left by some Siswa", she replies.
"The Rahib probably had the intention of using her body instead of yours", Hasan says to Rahasia.
"And there is someone else here!" Sinar, the elf wizard, says.
But before you can go there, someone inside the cell says something and the nearest elves, Benar and Bechak, falls down as if hit by some magic. Sinar immediately goes inside the cell, struggling with a human dressed as a wizard. The human too is chained to the wall.

Lucius follows Sinar, helping him restrain the wizard.

Bofar watches around staying alert for any suprises.

After a moment of confusion, it becomes clear that it was all a misunderstanding. Benar and Bechak were just hit by a sleep spell as the wizard thought they were minions of the Rahib.
"I was captured by some strange elves while searching for the elven village of Kota Hutan - the wizard explains - I've come from Ylaruam to learn their magic and my name is Merdiz. I've had nothing to eat for three days and nights".
The elves soon give the wizard something to drink and eat. Rahasia explains the situation and ask for forgiveness for the bad experience he had in the land of the elves. There is nothing else in the corridor and the cells but some remains of people who were given to the spiders.
"Apparently two male humans, maybe travellers who came too near - Taran says - clearly the Rahib and the witches did not want visitors. I have taken their personal items to tell their kin of their death, if it will be possible to identify them".
You return to the previous corridor and this time open the southern door. There is a 6x3 meters antechamber with two doors east and west. the elven thief Jujur and the halfling thief Sunggu cautiously open the west door, which lead to a empty 6x6 meters room. The elven wizards however, Alki, Sinar and Mati, however discuss a bit among themselves and then go to the east wall, where they find a door disguised by the illusion of a solid wall.
The door opens on another room, where Jujur and Sunggu enter first searching for traps, while the wizards follow illuminating it with magical lights.
As soon as you are all inside you clearly hear something big, very big, moving in the dark southern half of the room.
You hardly have the time to do anything before a terrible red light appear, and in an instant you realize it is a wave of fire coming in your direction! Behind it, you can clearly see a big red dragon, breathing fire at you!
Lucius and Bofar are now on the rear the group, with 16 people in front of them. The fire engulfs them, and they see them screaming, burning and fall to the floor: Kesh, Taran, Bellithiel, Baik, Alki, Merdiz, Benar, Jujur, Kepala, Sunggu, Suchi and Sinar.
In the following confusion, Hasan, somehow unscathed, charges the dragon sword in hand, screaming to Rahasia to run away. Bechak does the same, following him. Mati, the female elf wizard, begins to cast frantically. Rahasia disobeys Hasan and crying, activates again the power of the medallion, creating a circle of light which should protect those remaining from hostile spells.
But the dragon does not cast or breath again, rearing on his legs to attack Hasan and Bechak with his front claws.

Lucius circles around Hasan and Bechak to attack the dragon from one side.

Bofar circles to the other side than Lucius.
