The room contained a life-size statue of a beautiful woman, wielding a polearm. We all failed our history/arcana checks to identify the subject, so naturally Looplily drew a mustache on it instead. There was also a barrel of whiskey in the room, which Looplily took with us. Rolling the barrel through the hallways and bouncing it down the stairs didn't do any favors for our stealth checks.
We quickly killed the two smaller rats, but the big one gave us a lot of trouble. It was resistant to ordinary weapons, so we had to get creative to damage it. Sneakx kept throwing dirt in the rat's eyes, causing temporary blindness. Bjertha had a silver dagger she'd picked up in a previous session, which helped a lot. She rolled well on the next couple of hits, but so did the rat, and soon Bjertha was making death saves. While Bjertha was down, Sneakx grabbed her dagger, and took over dealing damage.
Meanwhile, our guide Natalia fled the room and braced the door closed behind her. Thanks to a heal from Looplily, Bjertha got back up, but without the dagger she could no longer damage the were rat. As the fight went on, Bjertha went down again, along with Bugg and Looplily. Now alone, Sneakx ran out another of the room's doors, followed closely by the rat. Natalia came back into the room and healed Looplily a little bit.
We woke up a few hours later, all tied up. One by one the were rat interrogated us. When Bugg refused to answer any questions, the were rat killed him. Looplily, on the other hand, was much more cooperative, spilling the beans on our entire operation. We ended the session there.
There are several questions we need to ponder before going forward. For starters, the party Bard, Slancio, wasn't present this session. We need to decide where he was in the hopes he might be able to rescue us. With most (or all) of the Tower Girls dead, the were rat seems like she wants to recruit us. Daniel will have to bring a new character next week, so that might also be a factor in our escape.
