After the garden room and the hallway leading back to the entrance of the manor collapsed, the party made the choice to continue onward. Roswyn, a female Gnome Thief, emerged from the shadows and stated the there are no other entrances in or out of the manor. The Gnome is part of the Demon Hunter party and had been performing a cursory analysis of the manor while the remainder of the party went inside.
The demon hunters found a hallway with two large jail rooms and decided to explore one which held nine corpses dangling from arm restraints on the wall. Once inside, Desmond and Richter began to eliminate the corpses to be sure they did not re-animate. Richter expertly decapitated one of the hanging corpse, but Desmond was less successful and accidentally re-animated one of the corpses causing them all to awaken. The corpses began to screech and snap violently at the demon hunters; a battle ensued and some of the corpses escaped their restraints making their way towards any nearby demon hunter. Blades cut bone, dead flesh was separated, and the demon hunters were surrounded. Nuuna Rawhide unleashed his cleric powers and decimated the corpses in the room causing a relaxing bright light to linger in the room for a few minutes.
The demon hunters entered the second jail room and found to pits with caged tops built into the ground. One of the caged pits held four humans who were calling for help, and the other held a Tiefling with a damaged left eye. The team freed the humans and noticed one of them had been bit multiple times; they then freed the Tiefling who warned them of how dangerous the vampires were. Assana, taking point outside the room, suddenly felt a chill from above and realized three Vampire Sires were about to pounce.
The party battled three Vampire Sires who fell to a few well placed arrows and decapitations. No member of the party was bitten or mortally wounded making their first encounter with Enoch’s subordinates a success. Now with one larger room and the end of the hallway to check, the party feels a dark presence growing near.
