After chatting with Venora and finding out what information that she and her late recon crew had about the library the group sets out toward the library.
Using a distraction, the group manages to take down the initial guards on the outside and quickly press into the library only to find the main lobby to be infested with large spiders, but a quick fire sees to them quickly.
A side room contained several short pillars containing strange crystal spheres. Many of the sphere were currently being held by lesser demons known as Dretch. During the fight many spheres were destroyed as the Dretch used them as weapons, but once the battle was over a few remained. One of the remaining spheres turned out to be an unusual type of magic item, an image of an Elf appeared within the sphere identifying himself as Eloquan, Chief Lorekeeper of Celwynvian. Eloquan was able to convey information about Elven history, but on the history that had happened up 10,000 years ago. The other intact spheres didn’t seem to have any type of function.
After proceeding through another room filled with spider webs, but only regular sized spiders, the group confronted the final guardians of the library. A group of Drow had sealed themselves within the main library and guarded it with their lives. Another full plate wearing captain, commanded a trio of Drow trained as Psionic Dreads and also a massive Shadow Mastiff, but after a hard fight the group was successful and managed to hold the library until a group of Elven scouts were in place to guard it.
