The party decides to wait out the storm Several hours later, with the rain subsiding, they decide to head out. Within a few miles they come across a Treant. Davian Urthadar is quickly recognized as a Gnarley Forest Ranger.
The Treant speaks in the common tongue but each word is slow to come out. A small sentence takes rounds. "Careful protector of forests, " it says. “I am Grayspruce of the Welkwood and must tell you humanoids lurk nearby. Huge orcs that look strange to me.”
“In treant tongue Davian says to it, “thank you wise one. Boethian Volonwood and I will do all we can to keep you and rest of the forest safe.”

Within a few miles the party spots a group of bugbears. “These must be the orcs the Treant spoke of,” says Boethian.
More than a dozen. They look hungry.

The bugbears fight to the death. Moral drops and a few flee. The PC’s do not give chase

It takes the party nearly an entire day to reach the ruined temple

Saranee of the Chapeaux immediately gets to work, “the sooner we’re done the sooner you can get your pay and be on your way.”
Near the back of the ruins is a stairway to the level below. it is relatively clean. The rangers both notice muddied tracks. They’re ogre sized with a three toe print.
The stair are both high and narrow. Movement must be single file. There are about 30 stairs that lead to an unlocked old wooden door.

Davian forces the door open. Inside there are several hook horrors and ogres.
The cleric, Gurvinvar, quickly puts up a wall of stone trapping Davian and a hook horror inside with the ranger.

Meanwhile, as Saranee of the Chapeaux and the mage, Jace Belerer watchthe outside of the entrance, a beholder makes it way towards them. It’s 10 eyes and central eye aggressively attack the PCs’s

It attempts to take out the 2 before the others come up the stairs. He throws that mage into the air and then attempts a death ray on the priestess but fails.
The rest of the party finally reaches the beholder. Most in for melee. There is no doubt someone will fall. Sure enough one of the eyes looks at Gurvinar. A green bolt comes out, the cleric disintegrates. The beholder decides to try and get away as it uses its eyes to defend itself. But it’s weak. The party finishes him off.
