After a quick inspection of Arthuro’s room, the party pressed on. Kenneth accidentally stumbled into an alarm trap, as a set of nightingale stairs alerted a group of Dog Brothers to his presence. A gruesome struggle ensued, and the Dog Brothers, fierce and loyal to each other, brought a hard fight to the party. The battle was only made more lethal by the appearance of [[:Irocar The War Captain]], who rained arrows down upon the party from his lofty perch before attacking head on with heavy shield and bastard sword. Seeking Kenneth out for a prior insult, Irocar killed him with one brutal swing of his bastard sword. Spurred on by the death of their comrade, the party finally managed to surround the War Captain and bring him down.
