The party now needed to escape from the prison with Belezin Thorngren. They took a pathway into the underdark that likely would end where they had previously found the entrance. They travelled quickly because it was inevitable that it would not take the drow long to come searching when the nobles did not return with the prisoner.
They first arrived at a large cavern and took the path to the left which led to a demon web-pit that was used to convert drow into driders. The party made noise which alerted the driders to their presence. Sarat was able to charm the driders, thus avoiding a fight.
Returning to the cavern, the party encountered the first of their pursuers who were easily dispatched. They then continued on to the exit. Just prior to the exit with the guards, there was an elevator. Jar Silkweaver lowered himself down the elevator, convincing the guards that he was the next shift. When the drow entered the elevator, it was cut from above, thus killing the guards and allowing the party to escape without a fight. Frizzt Hun’ett dropped a Hun’ett coin in the wreckage as a diversion tactic.
They then headed through the Underdark to the extraction point on the surface, but first taking a rest. Belezin seemed to not know why he had been captured. In a previous interrogation, he had been asked questions about Drizzt Do’Urden (exile of Do’Urden).
While resting in a side cave, the party heard a large detachment of goblins marching overhead. Rather than take a longer alternative route, they followed the detachment to a large cave in which a massive goblin war was underway. Two mind flayers could be seen hovering on the other side of the cavern.
For fear of mind flayers, they thought it best to wait things out. This gave the drow that were pursuing them an opportunity to catch up to the party. Their hiding place allowed them to ambush the two lizard riders. The captured lizards allowed them to travel across the wall and pass safely through the goblin war.
Arriving at the rendezvous point, they were surprised to not find Belezin’s friends, but agents of House Baenre who took possession of the prisoner and paid the remainder of the 700gp payment.
