The party delved deep into the catacombs where the spiders had come. They slayed many spiders and after a lot of walking in circles found the passage they sought. Within the catacombs, suspended above a huge chasm, rested the staff. The druid used his excellent beast communicating abilities on a few lesser spiders in order to cross on the spider’s silk. Upon their escape the paladin was slain by a spellcasting spider and rest of the party barely made it.
The party returned with the staff, and they were able to convince the druids to keep the staff.
The gunslinger made his way back to the ship with Zifr Liverian (Deceased) in tow. On that journey, Zifr lost his life mysteriously…
The party eventually returned and made their way back to the ship.
