-completed level 2 after defeating and mentally enthralling Kaernga the Beastman Warlord in a mighty, bloody battle.
-found stairs down to level three
-heard about the White Roc tribe and their leader Drugila (Kaernga’s sister!)
-avoided the natural caves of Level 2 after hearing tales of a ghost!
-returned to Silvercliff and had a huge party that lasted for three days! And destruction spent all his money! And all of the party’s loot from the dungeon delve. It was glorious!
-met with Lady Chauntessa, proprietor of the Sleeping Drake Inn, who rewarded their work with free lodgings at the inn. She also asked the party to keep a lookout for any books in the ruins, and she offers to pay handsomely for them.

NOTES
Holy smokes, but the BM rolled well on his carousing checks first time out of the gate. He rolled a 28+ on a d30 for all three mains! These tables are super fun and serve for great fodder for in game developments and storytelling.
Lotus Stare is stupid powerful for a 2nd level spell, or feels that way to me. The BM nerfed all three of the main big bads of Level 2 with that thing.
