Beneath The Temple

Ghoulish and Ghastly

The party was asked to help the Chapel solve a mystery. First, a relic (chalice) was stolen from the preparation room, then two bodies disappeared (first that of the cultist prisoner, second that of the priest Renaldo).

After some investigation the party found a trapdoor which they pried open (although there appeared to be a mechanism of some type connected to the altar, they could not determine its purpose).
Beneath the trapdoor were a series of caverns occupied by some ghasts and ghouls. Further exploration revealed the tomb of Shemnoata (a pirate?) and (in another section of the caverns) an ancient treasure chest.
After killing the ghouls and ghasts, the party beheaded the corpse and tossed the head into the shaft, later following it themselves to investigate the depths.

Question: Did you recover the ropes you left behind to help with the return? What did you do with the bodies of the prisoner and/or the cultist? Are you taking all of the loot with you (and is the dwarf just carrying everything because that’s what dwarves are good for – or if not, who has what?)
