We went back into the castle again today, though that lamia (lady) was a worry for us. I'm thinking that I need to find another animal companion that can accompany me more on these jaunts. All of this rock and stone makes me uncomfortable. No nature around here to use in our defense. Inside the place, it was fairly gory. The kitchen had a gruesome brute who was using bodies and manikins. We cleared out the floor and rested in the library. Most of the place was trashed. Then we went upstairs and took care of another brute. There was no sign of that (lady) we met earlier. I'm sure she'll come around eventually.
