Catrix, Lisbeth and Varion, commissioned by Geoffry Gand, meet Ublich at the Transcendent Librarium. Shortly after arriving, several kruthiks burst through the floor, followed by Bit who is chasing them with a baby kruthik tied to a stick. The group made quick work of the Kruthiks and learn that Bit was hired by a mysterious elderly human to rid his property of a kruthik infestation.
After some deliberation, the group decides to follow the underground tunnel back to where Bit was hired. After doing so, they crest a small hill to discover a white house with a boarded up front door. There was a mailbox there. After carefully inspecting it for traps, Bit opened the mailbox and found a note. (HEY Will, can you write in what the note says? I forget.)
The group decided to avoid the boarded front door and make their way to the back of the house, where they find a window ajar. They entered the house (Varion, only after knocking over the chairs and table), to find it utterly deserted. There was uneaten food on the table as well as a burlap sack. The group discovered that delicious food came out of the sack whenever they reached inside. Yay.
They climbed upstairs and discovered that it was pitch black; they realized they might be eaten by a grue, so Varion lit the way. They found a rope and a knife. Bit took both.
Finally, they entered the living room where they discovered an empty trophy case, a large rug on the floor and a boarded up door with magical runes reading, “Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here.”
They moved the rug, discovered a trap door, open it and made their way down.
