  • Anex must have headed home alone after being trapped in the invisible-spider-verse, since she wasn't present. Seems a sensible decision for a person to make.
  • After waiting for the smoke to clear from their burning of the invisible webs, the party moved into the massive tunnels where they had previously encountered the Son of the Spider-God.
  • In a chamber attached to the tunnels the party encountered a ghostly figure wrapped in translucent webs. After a brief bit of combat the creature disappeared.
  • The party waited for several minutes, and once they attempted to take some treasure out of the room the thing reappeared.  This time it used some hideous power inherent in its unwholesome visage, aging Ion Skamos a few years but aging Annapurna to the equivalent of her mid-60s.
  • Beyond this chamber the party found where the tunnel split north and south.  They headed south and began to realize that they were looping around to already discovered areas.  Ion wished to more properly map the connections, but the party outvoted him and decided to continue on the trail of the Son of the Spider-God.
  • They headed to the northern section and found a room where someone had made a crude barricaded with pieces of earthenware.  There was a large amphora filled with copper pieces.
  • While there were chambers beyond this barricade and broken pots, the party decided that the Son of the Spider-God was not likely to be beyond, or at least that they should check the rest of the large tunnel first.
  • Backtracking, they found another set of chambers - three in number.  The first contained a false door that was an obvious trap.  The second and third seemed to be used to turn giant spider-silk into garments. 
  • These chambers were inhabited by a pair of specters, which the party destroyed.
  • At this point the party decided to leave and perhaps return later to finally slay their quarry.  They took the spinning material with them as well as various treasure caches they had found in this rather long expedition.
