Enroute Taklinn discovered the Quann spewed white rocks which he thought looked like diamonds which he retrieved, and showed the others only to find they were even more valuable as they were not diamonds but a type of arcane crystal which gave Magic Users a boost in what they could do.

With that they approach the Manor, they slowed when they saw a Hydra walk past the Manor and towards the back of it, everyone shared glances not sure they wanted to face that.
Before they could go another step eight Orges appeared out of the Manor and charged at the them!

The group recovered before exploring the Manor further…
