Theron wheels and brings down his blade on the derro that is threatening Ashtoret, his swing carrying to the mite as he finishes.

you're not gonna hit her...or anyone...ever again, mutt!

The derro dodges the initial strike.

"We need light!"

Seebonickk has the light and dancing lights SLAs.
And Ashtoret isn't stunned anymore in round 2, right?

Correct, the stunned only lasted one round, so neither Ashtoret, Nightkit, nor anyone else should currently be stunned.

Ashtoret shakes her head, there is still ringing in her ears and darkness in front of her eyes. But the brain is working fast as usual, and in the middle of this darkness, her not quite normal laughter is heard. Then a few passes with her hands and her silhouette seems to be stratified... I know you're here, but you can't take me, you pathetic creatures. And again hysterical laughter in the dark...

Then, she successfully casts her spell.

Would it be ok to bot Seebonickk and have him cast his light SLA on the wall next to him? He can cast it 3/day, so it's not like he uses up ressources that he doesn't get back.
It would help with the part of the room where there is no darkness spell (yet).

Ashtoret will head out of the zone of darkness in the direction where she was not beaten with a sword, which means maybe there is no enemy there (north; AoO let's go!). When she gets out into the light, pinching the wound with a cut with the palm of her hand, she will notice Merida and hide behind her. Already standing next to her, Ashtoret will see a terrible swarm of insects to the south, but it's too late to do anything. She starts laughing nervously again (double move).

Devil We Know | Burden of Envy | B12 Somewhere Below (GM School)

Theron downs the last derro.

The two remaining mites immediately toss up their hands in surrender.
Morale condition met for surrender.

The flames consume the spider swarm.
It had 1 hit point left, so to keep us moving...

In addition to the mites, there are a number of enslaved Cassomoirites in the tunnel.

If you free the slaves:
The Cassomirites immediately head to the stairs and make for the surface.

Should a PC ask one of the slaves any questions, you may open the spiler below:

Spoiler:
The slave reports that he is an engineer and that his fellows are a city planner and a mason. He tells you that they were all kidnapped in the last week; and that they were led to believe someone named Dalirio was going to turn them into skeletons.

If you spare the life of one mite eand keep him alive:
You may attempt to convince them to accept a a letter.
To do so requires a successful DC 12 Diplomacy check.

After having dealt with the derro caravan, the Pathfinders are free to heal up as desired and to continue to investigate the fountain, including the massive tumblers bearing the three previously-located symbols that circle the fountain’s base.

PARTY STATUS

Nightkit -9 HP
Theron -3 HP
Merida
Menudo -7 HP
Ashtoret -11 HP | -1 NL
Seebonick -4 HP

Please indicate any healing done in your post.

Each of the three tumblers has hundreds of symbols inscribed on it and none of the symbols repeat themselves, but the previously-located symbols each appear on only one tumbler.

Nightkit has no difficulty aligning all three.
Auto succeed at Disable Device (DC 12).

With a final audible click the tumblers lock into place. Suddenly, the fountain begins to rotate and its stale waters drain rapidly. The grinding of the gears echoes off the stone walls, causing the ground to shake. As the fountain rotates, a spiral staircase appears where the fountain’s solid basin once sat. A slick staircase slopes down into Cassomir’s bowels, twisting its way down and around a deep cistern.

The stairs lead to downward. Ahead, at their base, lies an enormous room, filled with dozens of family crypts decorated with family names, heraldic crests, and a variety of death-themed statuary. The walls, floor, and ceiling are made of smooth, polished stone, and the crypts are made of thick, square blocks of granite. A handful of statues stand throughout the room, though they don’t seem to be placed with any plan—some face the wall, some lie on their sides, and others are damaged beyond repair.

The northwest quarter of the room is dominated almost entirely by a single large crypt. The name “Ismacco” is displayed across the front of the crypt.

Knowledge (history or local) (DC 12):
In earlier times, dozens of Taldor’s most notorious families were reburied here as punishment for their transgressions against the empire (real or imagined). The largest crypt is the family crypt of the Ismacco family, but here also lie some of the Teppish family crypts as well.

Two enormous lit braziers on either side of the Ismacco crypt’s doors light the entire room.

The party proceeds past the remains of an otyugh that clearly ran out of time.
Optional encounter

The party proceeds to the entrance of a grand crypt that stretches toward the room’s ceiling and two large, copper braziers flank its impressive floor-to-ceiling doors. At the building’s base, a faceless statue holds a gibbous moon aloft.
PC tokens now moved to entrance of grand crypt on new map on Slides.

Knowledge (religion) (DC 15):
You recognize the statue in front of the crypt as a representation of Groetus.

The crypt’s entrance is not locked. The inside of the crypt is well lit. Ornate carvings decorate the walls inside the Ismacco crypt, creating several stylized burial niches. Tall, marbled pillars stretch to the 20-foot-high ceiling, creating three alcoves that hold massive oak sarcophagi. At the rear of the chamber, stairs ascend into a basilica-like dome. A musty smell permeates the chamber, and several dozen torches burn brightly in wall sconces throughout the crypt.

In the northwest-most alcove of the crypt, two Cassomirite slaves are bound inside a small cage. Several thugs dressed like members of the Cult of Nature’s Cataclysm have set up a guard post near a shattered burial niche in the northeast corner of the room , which hides a set of rough-hewn stairs descending into darkness.

A grand altar rests in the open basilica in the northernmost portion of the room; stairs nearby lead up to a second level of burial niches. An impressive two-story wall mural in the basilica depicts a stern figure glaring down on the sepulcher.

Up above, Nightkit frees the now ex-slaves and they head off up to the surface. She does ask one of them where they were. She discovers that the ex-slave is an engineer and that his fellows are a city planner and a mason. They were all kidnapped in the last week; and that they were led to believe someone named Dalirio was going to turn them into skeletons.

Nightkit frowns at this information and promises to make sure this Dalirio is stopped.

k local: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (11) + 6 = 17
Down below, Nightkit tells the others that in earlier times, dozens of Taldor’s most notorious families were reburied here as punishment for their transgressions against the empire (real or imagined). The largest crypt is the family crypt of the Ismacco family, but here also lie some of the Teppish family crypts as well.

She doesn't recognise the statue of the man holding the moon but suspects it has something to do with Groteus.

And seeing more slaves and slavers, she's ready for a fight, having drunk a potion of Cure Mod Wounds.

Before you drink the potion, Menudo was going to Channel.

Loot:
On the derros, you find two sets of leather armor, two short swords, two aklys, and a pair of repeating light crossbow with a total of 20 poisoned bolts. On the mites, you recover four daggers and a total of 24 darts. There are also the fractured remains of one jar.

That fancy crossbow might be handy. Ashtoret...you should take it. In case your magic isn't effective. I'm snagging a pair of daggers...just in cast...

Ashtoreth certainly takes the poisoned bolts, giving Menudo the most charming smile, but it's not convenient to shoot at such a crowd, so she takes out a magic wand and releases two magic missiles at the running cultist (blue).

Merida fires an arrow at the cultist in blue, trying not to hit her fellow pathfinders.

Merida has the Precise Shot feat, but the blue cultist still has soft cover.

Menudo staggers around blindly, provoking as many attacks of opportunity as he can.

"Come on you little buggers! Come at me!"

GM can place me on the map wherever I end up.

Nightkit wonders what Menudo is doing. Monk drunken master style?


Devil We Know | Burden of Envy | B12 Somewhere Below (GM School)

Merida's shot hits, dropping a cultist (blue).

When Menudo enters, he is met with a bolt from one of the cultists (white).
Cultist (white), ranged (composite longbow), readied: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21

Cultist (red) rushes forward with his club at the ready.
