    "So many ways for disaster to happen! I suppose we may as well see which one is waiting," Zevi intoned.

    "Perhaps the kobold's magic circle can be of use?" Dire enters the circle, and reaches out with his magic sense...

    "No use standing around all day, let's see what we have behind this waterfall. Halvard and I are up front, Zevi and Dire take the rear," said Panmorn trying to show confidence.

    "Pelor watch over us," he whispers as he grips the hilt of his sword to calm his shaking hand.

    I would almost accept someone watching over us thought Barran wryly, because the chances of my getting back to a warm bed tonight are decreasing by the second, while my odds for a gruesome death keep increasing.

    With fresh confidence in his step from the infusion of magical power, Dire steps into formation.

    Halvard stands and stretches, then hefts his weapon in preparation for the advance.

    Zevi nods his head glumly. He knew this would happen. Covering his bow with his cloak in preparation for going through the tumbling water, he waits for the inevitable.

    The adventurers walk up to the waterfall and pause briefly before pushing through. Panmorn and Halvard are first. As their eyes adjust to the light, they are shocked at the size of the cavern in which they now stand. Lights bounce from sconce to dirt floor, down a long hallway at least 80 feet long. The far space ahead is, oddly, covered with dark-coloured tile. Panmorn wasn't an expert on secret waterfall caverns, but he was pretty sure that stone floor tiles were not the usual decor.

    At the rear, Barran, Zevi, and Dire stepped through the water. The bard immediately notices a familiar gleam out of the corner of his eye. To the northeast, light glistens off old, golden pots and bowls. It looks like these kobolds have been hoarding treasure! Zevi elbows him in the ribs, gesturing toward something else in front of him that the ranger somehow deems more important.

    It is then that Barren notices that the cavern is crawling with kobolds. Not only that, but there's a figure walking toward the treasure pile that is clearly far too big to be one of these creatures, his axe being twice the size of one of them.

    Amazed at the sight before him Panmorn takes a moment to size up everything he can see. This was starting to feel too familiar, and he wasn't sure if that was a good thing. "Pelor give me strength."

    The adventurers stand ready, gladdened (only slightly) by the fact that the kobolds have yet to notice them.

    The first the kobolds are aware of any trouble are Zevi's flying arrows and his subsequent words.

    "Small fry first, people. They're most dangerous in numbers."

    Inspired by the sight of the kobold in front of him drop, Panmorn charges the one now standing in front of him. The beast didn't have a chance as Panmorn bore down and killed it with one quick swing of his sword.

    Feeling confident from the power he drew from the magic circle, Dire points his wand and turns the very air to fire amidst the kobolds. He almost feels sorry for the oblivious creatures as they howl and burn. 2 of the smaller ones die instantly, but the bigger one is able to stay standing as his flesh burns and blisters.

    Barran brought his flute to his lips and played a taunting tune at the singed skirmisher. It falls to the ground from a combination of flames and...demoralization.

    As the kobolds fumble to react, Zevi takes two final shots, trying to fell yet another. Sadly the shot is a glancing one.

    Oh good, more kobolds - Round 1

    The kobolds are made aware of the presence of the adventurers in their lair only by the falling of several of their allies around them. The scaly creatures spring to action, charging at the adventurers grouped in the entryway.

    A fury of spears lash out at the group, causing sizable damage. When the dust settles, they find themselves completely surrounded.

    "You will know Pelor's wrath," yelled Panmorn at the kobold in the middle of the pack as he swung. The beast heard Panmorn too late, the longsword split him open with a radiant surge of energy.

    He then turned his attention to the kobold now behind him. The lizard was quick, but not quick enough. Divine energy poured out of Panmorn as his weapon connected, all of the enemies surrounding him now focused their attention on the paladin.

    As the kobold's spear cuts into Dire, he lets out a monstrous howl and the creature is erased from existence by flame. The wizard's demonic origins are once again brought to front of his allies' minds.

    Growling at the sudden sting of tiny weapons piercing his armor, Halvard lunges forward, shoving his way through two kobolds before burying his halberd halfway into the body of the one that charged him. With a primal howl, he tears his weapon through the other half, leaving the kobold dead on the cave floor.

    Barran shouted out encouragement to Halvard before Brandishing his flute at the skirmisher beside him.

    His notes are disrupted by the beast's proximity, giving it an opening (if it dares to take it)

    Oh good, more kobolds - Round 2

    The remaining two kobolds let out a high pitched scream and turn to run into the back of the cavern. Bits of rock and dust crumble from the ceiling of the cave. At first, it seems odd that such tiny creatures could cause the tremble in the cave floor that the adventurers suddenly notice.

    A moment later, it becomes clear that the tremble is from something else entirely.

    "Irontooth!" shrieks a reptilian voice from somewhere to the east.

    As Panmorn's sword arm recovers from the attempt, he straightens himself up and notices something troubling. Along with the two cowardly kobolds are three more. Another creature looms over them all, brandishing a battle axe.

    Steeling himself for whatever waits behind the wall, Halvard strides forward. After taking a moment to size up his new opponents, he charges at the nearest kobold, leaving the cowards to be dealt with by the others. The howl that erupts from him manages to stun his target just long enough to create an opening, which Halvard fills with the blade of his weapon.

    Dire hears Halvard's howl on the other side of the wall, and rushes forward to see what is going on. "I knew this was going too easy!" He mutters to himself as he pulls magical energy into his mind and propels it out his wand in yet another burst of flame.

    Oh good, more kobolds - Round 3

    Irontooth lowers his enormous battle axe behind him and charges towards the two adventurers. The blade sparks off the tiled floor as he runs, and he swings in a great, wide arc, missing the paladin completely. He makes a low grunting noise, and the two kobold denwardens seem to respond to an incomprehensible command. They lunge at the others, grouped to the east. While Zevi manages to deflect a blow, Dire takes a spear in the side.

    Meanwhile, a robed kobold emerges from the south, muttering an blasphemous prayer with its forked tongue. The kobolds in the cavern seem to gain strength, and the priest unleashes a glowing ball of energy that only dissipates against Halvard's hardened skin.

    "You are mine vermin!" bellowed the paladin.

    Panmorn took a mighty swing at Irontooth while calling out words of encouragement to Dire. Irontooth was almost able to block the attack, but Panmorn bore down and pushed passed the kobold's defense.

    Panmorn wasn't sure if it was his words, or if it was seeing Irontooth take a vicious blow, but Dire seemed to recover from some of his wounds.

    "Throw your magic at ME, will you?" Halvard bellows while taking a long step back from Irontooth. He turns that long step into a charge straight at the wyrmpriest's face, but forgets about how shifty these things are, missing by the slightest margin.
