For easily defeating Tim the Flameskull on his own, for real this time, everyone gains 40 XP. Huzzah! This brings the total common XP up to 6730.
The cave has been thoroughly scoured of treasure at this point. ;-)
Demea’s efforts at harvesting the first giant spider, assisted by Tim, broke the venom sac (onto his hands), but yielded a full unit of spider silk, i.e. enough to craft a silk rope with the right skills, or use in a magic item recipe that calls for giant spider silk. :-)
After perfecting their technique, Demea and Tim were able to collect everything that the other three spiders had. Unfortunately, that wasn’t much; the ghouls had really worked those over. Between the three of them, you are able to just scrape together one more unit of silk, plus an amount of raw giant spider venom that Alton is able to identify through his black market background as one unit, and worth approximately 20 gp.
As stated in-game, Grulo earned inspiration for his amazing climb up the water wheel, followed by grabbing Flameskull Tim and pile-driving him into the floor! (sort of)
On a side note, I am going to assume that no one is using or adding to the player notes created in the Google doc (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VfXcuaW-iOv5FjavI367MGfELT2P-n9x6Ahi7Hkz1EQ/edit#), since we now have the Obsidian Portal website forum for that kind of thing if anyone ever cares. Please let me know if that is not the case or changes in the future. Thanks!
