Invisible mini Vlad head scouted the left tower, tried inciting a fight between the 2 bugbears manning it but they were too professional to be duped, so he blew ‘em up good with a fireball. Greed & Ritzy used Tarvenir as a battering ram (Knock spell) to bust down the front door, bashed down inner door of vestibule with simple homanculous heftiness. Fight ensued between our heroes and 4 bugbears with hand weapons and 2 with polearms. A lot of 1’s and nut shot results ensued, with awesome finisher from Srehn on last one that made run for basement. Vlad scouted upstairs, found Granny Maw sitting in a rocking chair by the magic tapestry doing needlepoint on a badly tanned wolf skin. Team charges up, Srehn sliced off her head but found it was all illusion. Granny waiting on ceiling, claws dug into timbers with huge cleaver in her teeth. She drops down in a surprise attack, casts Antipathy, driving all but Greed & Ritzy from the room.
They face off for a fight as session closes.

Toward the latter days of this campaign I tended to get a bit more loquacious in my follow up emails, so there's not much here to comment on that hasn't already been said. They blasted their way into the Keep and fought their way upstairs, where they ran into the horrible blue hag Granny Maw. We wrap up the session with the party's homanculi squaring off for a boss fight.
Stay tuned for Friday.
