After the battle we searched the room. There was a pool of water containing some snapping turtles, which we avoided. We found a door to the kobold armory, where Lilith obtained a Cold Iron Masterwork Longsword. A bit later we ran encountered an old kobold priest, who warned us about a "great scaly beast" before he died. From his body we took a box with trailing ribbons, which detects as magical, but we haven't figured out what it does yet.
Meanwhile, the rest of us ran across the bridge, went around the corner, and fought the kobold slingers directly from their hiding place in a side passage. Lilith blocked off the passage so no kobolds could escape, and the rest of us fired around her until all the kobolds were defeated. We then went down another hole to go even deeper into the dungeon.
Half the party continued fighting the skeletons in the left hallway, and the other half ran around so they could attack from the opposite tunnel. Tanith used a fear spell on the cleric, who then fled down another hallway. Once the skeletons were destroyed, we examined the statue. It was an idol of "The Infernal Duke Vapula", who I don't know, but it certainly sounds like one of those Names To Run Away From Really Fast. We beat up on the idol for a few minutes before continuing.
Nighttail requested that we not disturb the kobold nursery, which she called "The Room of the Future." We happily obliged, and walked on by. Down the next tunnel, Erevel found and disabled a tripwire. The tunnel finally opened up into a room containing the cleric, three kobold guards, and their chieftain: the evil sorcerer Roaghaz.
During the fight, Roaghaz used a web spell, which kept some of us (mostly Halfbeard) from moving very far into the room. Meanwhile, the cleric used a powerful "Channel Negative Energy" power which damaged all of us, and killed his own guards. This dropped Erevel, and Raz spent the next round trying to keep him from dying. A couple of rounds later the cleric used the power again, killing Erevel and nearly dropping Raz. Lilith finished off the cleric, leaving only Roaghaz.
The chieftain was tricky. He cast Mirror Image, so our next few attacks only took out his illusions. Then he hit Raz, Lilith, and Halfbeard with Glitterdust, blinding them for a few rounds. His next spell fumbled, accidentally releasing a nausea-inducing Stinking Cloud. Tanith made the final hit that finished off our foe.
Our share of the gold is 461.25 gp each. We each earned 1294 xp, bringing the survivors up to 3294.
