I missed last week's session, during which they explored an underwater shipwreck, found a brooch which they agreed to return to an undead guy's widow, fought some Darrows and a Dark Mantle, and rescued Fenster the Blight from a torture chamber. They left off with a choice of two sets of stairs leading down.
The first Homunculus went down easy. Khrysm killed the second henchman herself, when she hit our party with a Thunderwave spell. Kelson made the final blow against Khrysm, and we looted the room. Between Khrysm and the room's closets, we found a few potions, a Wand of Spiritual Weapon (11 charges), 232 gold, 1423 silver, and 2100 copper pieces. We took a long rest in this room.
We went back up and then down the other set of stairs. These stairs ended suddenly, but on the way down there was a hidden door. Slancio felt his piece of shard pulling him towards the next piece, and we followed the secret passage until we reached an altar room. The second shard was guarded by two giant spiders called Shriezyxs. But lets just call them spiders because it's easier to type.
The pedestal in the center of the room had grooves to fit all seven shards. Since this meant we'd probably need to come back here in the future, we went around the rest of the Crow compound and made sure everything else was dead. Lilly took a sample of some brown fungus which damaged her as she collected it. She had to do a lot of clever things involving swords and barrels to keep the fungus doing her more harm as she dragged it back out of the dungeon.
We went back to town and headed for the mansion of Sheila Heidmarch. We found out that the new shard was the Shard of Greed. We are now taking 40 days of downtime in order to do more research.

As the holidays make a lot of us busy, we are considering taking the rest of December off and resuming sessions in January.
