- The battle with the otyughs and carrion crawlers continues. It is a long fight, and at one point Lenk succumbs to the nashing teeth and flailing tentacles of the otyughs, falling into the muck.
- Khalsig rouses the half-orc, and Firrian and Laeryth finish the creatures off.
- Deciding to take a moment during a short rest to search through the muck, Laeryth discovers a body. A portly gentleman, seemingly well-off before his demise, lays in a pile of filth, his legs eaten. In attire suitable for a merchant, his pockets are empty. However, in the muck under the corpse, Laeryth discovers a letter. It is barely readable, but the following can still be made out.

Sneaking up to the crates, Laeyrth peers through a crack and sees a small cadre of orcs apparently attempting to construct some shabby form of shelter out of old boxes and wood scraps. On the far side of the sewer chamber a large orc with a barbed spear issues orders from atop a stack of boxes.

The large orc Champion was taking Lenk apart with his blood-letting spear, and Firrian and Khalsig were doing all they could to keep the half-orc upright while fending off the spears of the harriers.
- As the battle progressed, a violent scrum was forming in the center of the chamber, as Lenk, Firrian, and Laeryth battle for positions of advantage and the party of orcs did the same. Eventually the skill of the party was too much for the orcs, and the party outlasted them.
- Weak but still standing, the party stands in a large sewer chamber, surrounding by the splintered remains of the orcs defensive structures, and covered in blood. The orc champion, currently unconcious on the floor from Lenk’s final blow, begins to stir…
