After sending Timothy for some more rope, the party decided to investigate the caverns deep beneath the keep – hoping to find the Chalice down here somewhere.
Finding a passage leading up from the bottom of the shaft, Astra (Kayla) and Brian scouted ahead of the party. Finding that the passage split, the two decided to explore both directions to see what lay ahead. Astra discovered caverns of mushrooms with several glowing beetles munching upon them; Brian discovered a large chamber whose floor was partially covered with black moss. While Astra and Brian debated how to deal with this room, the remainder of the party came up behind them – at which point Astra and Brian lost their memories of the past 24 hours.
Exploring further revealed that beyond the mossy room were several snake bodied humanoids, including a room with more than a dozen of them chanting in front of a rune covered monolith around which was coiled a giant snake. While fighting the snakemen, a creature with the body of a snake and the head of a woman attacked from behind. After a long battle, the group defeated the snakes.
