29th of December 1357, Undermountain Level 1
Having rested, the group returns to the second level and continues to explore in the same direction they had begun. As they clear additional rooms that resembles the one where they found the manticore, they come upon a side tunnel. Here, they see what seems to be a small town built in a large cavern. They cautiously move over a building when they notice a small mechanical spider-like creature on the ceiling.
Hikaru tries to jump up and get it, but he misses. The group resolves to shoot it with magic missile and they spider falls from the ceiling, blowing up as it lands. While the group are investigating the wreckage, two swarms of centipedes move in and attack. The group fights them off but, as the battle ends, the groups moves into a teleport area and are teleported to an unknown location.
The group arrives several feet off the ground and falls into a large piles of refuse. The room is filled with decomposing waste and makes several of the group sick. The group quickly gets out of the room. In the hallway, they hear heavy steps coming from their right. They wait and see what is the source of the sound., A moment later, a large humanoid agglomeration of refuse moves towards them. The group immediately attacks and within a few rounds, destroys the golem. The group then moves west and comes upon a large pool of water also filled with refuse. The water is only a few feet deep.
In the pool, they meet a Otyugh named Rikitikitiki (or something to that effect) who bemoans the destruction of the golem, who would bring him food by distributing the garbage all over the area. Rikitikitiki asks the group to fix the golem or have him fixed by Troa.
The group goes to meet Troa, who resides nearby, in a clean area of the halls. He is working on repairing several clockwork contrsucts. He agrees to replace the golem if the group helps him fininding spare parts. He speaks of an area where the clockworks have begun to rebuild themselves and are hostile to all outsiders. He says they can find the replacement parts there. He give the group a clockwork spy with a recording of all the parts they need because they “don’t look too bright”. He tells them where to go to leave the area. They go to a room where they can get clean and then can teleport out.
The group arrives in an area with a large lever. They hear the tolling of a bell every second. Fist rushes forward and pulls the lever. The tolling of the bell stops.
The group begins to explore agoin and eventually arrive in a hallway with a curtain of darkness. After cautiously probing through the curtain they advance. In the hallway, suddenly, a female figure appears dressed in a robe. Superficially similar to a drow, something is different. She seems to wait for something. When the group doesn’t seem to deliver, she shrugs and drops her robes. The exquisite beauty of her body drives Maele to distraction. Fist decides that she is hostile and punches her. Gauu is confused why Fist is attacking the lovely lady but, as he moves to intervene, Maele attacks him. Gauu retaliates. The fight runs into a free-for-all which, when it is over, the lady is unconscious and so is Maele.
