After adding 3 orcs and an ogre to their party at the end of Session 6 (Montporte 52), the adventurers and their large party continued to move carefully through level 2. Only a short distance from where the party killed the 4 thuragians in the last session, the party encountered 2 short, stocky hideous robed and hooded humanoids. This would be the party's first encountered with the 'oxkarrotous. The 'oxkarrotous had a string of humans, kobolds, and gnomes in tow, all chained together.
Alaric and Septimus decided that these two 'oxkarrotous were up to no good and, when the chained prisoners, cried out for help, the party attacked. The 'oxkarrotous were tough customers and were able to keep the main body of the party at bay. Unfortunately for the 'oxkarrotous, the room had multiple doors. The 3 orcs and the ogre looped around and attacked the the 'oxkarrotous on the flank through a side door. This turned the tide of the battle. The 'oxkarrotous finally went down. The adventurers suffered many wounds, but no one was killed out of the party.
The adventurers freed those who were chained and learned that the thuragians, the crab people encountered in the previous session, had settled nearby on level 2. From this base, they ventured forth and captured humanoids from nearby areas of the dungeon. The humanoid captives were sold to the 'oxkarrotous to be used as sacrifices in their demonic rituals.
As the party began to move on from this area, they encountered a group of mixed humanoids, led by a kobold named Larramore. Larramore turned out to be Little Larry, the faithful companion to Septimus' uncle, Adzeer Mattai. Little Larry's party was searching for the captives that had been freed by the adventurers.
Little Larry was now the troop commander for "the Community," a collective of idealistic property-sharing individuals living in the former gnome farming areas of levels 2 and 4. Daria was their leader. The Community's trade coordinator, Darius Pincushion (a gnome), negotiated a trade deal with Septimus and Alaric. The adventurers would bring a variety of weapons from Montporte to the Community and sell them at a profit. In return, the Community would sell the adventurers mushroom cubes that could be sold at a profit in Montporte.
Before departing, Ummerokhan, an Uyoga (mushroom person), joined the adventurers to serve as a guide who knew the path to the Community. The adventurers' 3 kobolds and the arbold left the adventurers to join Little Larry and the Community.
