The party awakens the following morning to Walton, cooking the hell out of their stockpile of potatoes
Walton is the team mom i’m telling ya. As the party sits to eat their breakfast, Taman confesses to Andraste as well as the rest of the party cuz they’re nosy that he’s had a strange dream, and that he believes that the spirits of the forest have granted him some strange power, as long as he swears to protect them meanwhile Andraste had the even stranger dream of Loghren teaching her how to shoot bows better.
Afterward, Alex decides to go for a nice swim in the pool, and notices that there seems to be a place where the water is draining. Everyone in turn begins to investigate the pool while Andraste keeps watch. Alex takes off all his armor, with help from Loghren, and wades into the pool, eventually swimming under the waterfall and emerging into a cavern on the other side. Taman tries to follow Alex first, and makes it only after nearly drowning.
Before Loghren goes to follow, Andraste offers to hold Alex’s armor and Wyrm Sting for him. It takes a bit of willpower, and effort, but Loghren is able to hand her Wyrm Sting. Dawn notices that something passes between them, and questions Andraste about it, who lies and says nothing is odd about the weapon. Dawn sees through her lie, and resolves to ask Loghren about it
I’M SORRY I TRIED TO KEEP IT SECRET.
Loghren goes through the waterfall easily
making taman totally jealous, and Andraste prepares to teleport herself, Dawn, Twobo, Walton, and Hamas over to the other side of the waterfall. Though she’s able to successfully teleport, she’s slightly off target, causing herself and everyone else she teleported to fall into the water.
Taman, Andraste, and Loghren continue on to the next room, following the current that runs through the cavern. They find a much larger pool, which Loghren dives into first. He’s able to find a tunnel that forks before he runs our of air. Andraste takes over, following the left tunnel, and almost running out of air, before finding the next cavern.
Alex dives in after her and makes it safely. Loghren, Hamas, and Walton make it over also, though Hamas might have gotten kicked in the face by a certain someone. When Dawn starts her swim, however, her sword belt gets stuck, and she gets forcibly pulled up by Andraste and Alex. Dawn, when safely in the cavern, realizes she lost Redemption in the water. Taman stores Twobo safely in the pouch of holding before starting his swim, and gets pulled along by the rope when Alex and Andraste pull Dawn up. He makes it safely, and Dawn resummons Redemption to her side.
Once everyone is safe, the party sets off, Loghren and Andraste taking point. They enter more tunnels, with stalactites and straw formations hanging from the ceiling. Wen Taman brushes up against one, it grabs him. Luckily, he’s freed by Walton. Another creature grabs Dawn, and when Loghren attempts to pull her free, they both get stuck, and yanked upward toward the ceiling. Loghren is able to free himself, but falls painfully to the floor. Andraste looses two arrows that the filament holding Dawn, cutting her free and making her fall on top of Wyrm Sting.
Another strange creature attempts to attack Andraste, but misses her. Alex, seeing it, summons his spiritual weapon and attacks it. Walton launches a fireball at the one who attacked Dawn, destroying it and a bit of the ceiling. As the party continues to assault the creatures, one attempts to escape, and barely manages it. The other is killed by Andraste.
