If it keeps on hurtin', Soraka's gonna heal...
We continued our battle with the giant spiders. I moved forward into the room so the party could see our standard. A couple more giant spiders leapt down from above. Fortunately the duplicate image Ne-los cast distracted my would be attacker. Milah and Pig both got bitten, and both seemed to be suffering from the spider's venom. Soraka did well to absorb most of the physical damage, and our fighters stayed in the fray. As always, the inevitable onslaught of the Spiders From Mars turned the tide, and the ogre spider fell. Eventually it was a matter of time, though it was time we almost didn't have. While Pig managed to shrug off the effects of the poison, Milah seemed very susceptible. We tried the means at our disposal, but were ineffective against the poison. It was looking very dire, but then the venom ran its course, and Milah survived. Albeit very weakened.

The party decided to head back to Magnimar, to help Milah recover and get some better supplies to deal with poison. We sold some loot, and bought an antidote kit and some anti-plague vials. I made my report to Sheila Heidmarch, and rested for the night.

The next day it appeared Milah would still need some rest, so I decided to play a gig at a tavern called The Salvatore Scream. Things started off ok, but then I decided to try an new song I'd been experimenting with:

Say something, I'm giving up on you,
I'll be the one, if you want me to,
Anywhere I would've followed you,
Say something, I'm giving up on you,

And I am feeling so small,
It was over my head,
I know nothing at all,

And I will stumble and fall,
I'm still learning to love,
Just starting to crawl...

The crowd was mostly silent, except for Pig. He apparently came to watch my show, and seemed to be very emotionally affected by the music. He started blubbering and carrying on, which seemed to put off the rest of the crowd. I didn't make much that evening, but sometimes that's the way it goes... Bunch of savages in this town...

The next day, we went back to The Crow, climbing all the way up. Then all the way down several flights of stairs. After all that, we finally made it back to the spider's chamber. We decided to go south, and it lead to a chamber with several mites. One of the mites appeared to be a king or a priest of some sort, he wore a special crown. There was also a mite “bard”, if you could call him that. Upon entering, we decided to dispense with any negotiations and just get rid of them. I started singing:

You've got your mother in a whirl,
She's not sure if you're a boy or a girl!

Hey babe, your hair's alright,
Hey babe, let's go out tonight,
You like me, and I like it all,
We like dancing and we look divine,
You love bands when they're playing hard,
You want more and you want it fast,
They put you down, they say I'm wrong,
You tacky thing, you put them on!

These mites proved to be cunning, and used their magic fairly well, but as we carved our way into the room it became apparent that they were no match for us. Soon we were victorious again.

We searched the “throne room” and collected anything of note. The unusual hat that the leader mite was wearing proved to be a bracer. It was magical, but without the other bracer it was unusable. Perhaps we would find the matching bracer somewhere close by.

(This was where we left off)
