The party decided to press on and move deeper into the fortress. This led them to a door where they could hear the sounds of Gnolls receiving martial training inside. Once again Zeeocks used his doppelganger powers to set up a clever ambush, and the party got the drop on the gnolls. The party defeated the Gnolls and their Shadar-Kai weapon master instructor. The Shadar-Kai had a note from Sarshan, and the largest of the gnolls had a magical sword named Wicked Fang.
Next the party entered a strange Githzerai training chamber that had alternating channels of water that could push people around the room. In the room were 3 Gnolls mounted on giant Hyenas. The party defeated the Gnolls and moved on.
The party chooses to ignore warnings written in Abyssal about a haunted room, and come to a meditation chamber. In the end the psionic echoes are no match for the party however.
The party leaves the fortress to rest for the night and they are ambushed by Gilgathorn (AKA Thorn). In the end the ambusher is defeated, and the party keeps his magical figurines. The party lets Gilgathorn go in the end, after he reveals that Sarshan is the one who placed the bounty on their heads.
