the two sleepers were roused from their enchantment and a retreat from the room undertaken. the masked men and mud-man stepped back to allow the party’s exit.
back in the rune room, the party (and prisoners) rested and ate the rest of the fresh/prepared foods.
eventually watch was kept over the secret entrance to the spiked corridor. after a few warriors emerged from the cell, and headed towards the kitchen, the party quickly moved to ambush them on their return to the secret hallways.
blinded by totz and tendos holding the lantern (inside the secret door), dug and dille rushed from across the hall and engaged the men with strange swords. they quickly dispatched two of them and the remaining man was able to escape.
the party looted the bodies and returned to the circular room to rest and plan the next move.
