You want to see a magic trick?

So our heroes believe they have teleported away from danger, only to arrive right into the center of danger, right into the place The Devoted bring their new slaves for processing before taking them to market in Jawaharat.
The three enter the facility and see an old man standing watch. He reaches for his staff to alarm everyone of the parties’ presence, but he then gets a glimpse of Fervis Ignis who has been here before in his time as a slaver for his tribe.
Fervis, instead of talking to the old man, knocks him out cold, leaving the party to enter into the facility quietly.
They enter the next room and discover a drow tying up Bane a human barbarian who is from the Nomadic Tribes of the great desert Alasshra Mamnue. the party attacks the drow, and Bane frees himself with a heroic act of strength. After dispatching the drow, the party begins to plunder the rooms around the sorting chamber. Bane finds his beloved obsidian axe, and feels the power pulse through his veins.
The party splits up, with Derrek and Claudia taking one hallway while Fervis and Bane take the other.
Derrek opens the first door, and pretty much sees nothing, after hearing breathing sounds before opening the door. Claudia steps in and sees two displacer beasts. She sets off a glitter bomb in the room, pulls the door shut, and begins to run. Derrek runs on her heels.
Claudia turns the corner and activates her illusionary dragon to put another obstacle in the way of the beasts if they decide to follow.
Meanwhile, Fervis and Bane enter the second door. Fervis, who is not a very perceptive fellow, sees a few dogs in the room. Bane steps in, and the three hell hounds attack.
The pair take a moment to dispatch the pair, while Derrek and Claudia enter the fray.
A poor drow enters the room and is easily dispatched, and the party searches the living area and finds a few new interesting magical items.
The party then makes their way south, through a very long hallway. They enter the dining room and discover nothing there, nothing except a lot of plates left in a hurry.
Fervis wonders which way they left, but realizes that you can’t really track someone from a plate on a table,
Fervis then opens the door to the kitchen. Disguised as a drow to help make his way through encounters, Fervis looks in and with his perception sees a drow looking over the cooking areas.
Fervis enters and walks in, hoping to kill the drow quickly. Sadly, it is not just any drow, but the party sees as the upper torso and head of a drow are attached to the body of a giant spider. The drider looks at Fervis, and says something in undercommon, a language that Fervis doesn’t know but is the normal language of the drow.
After Fervis makes a snippy remark, combat begins. The party attacks the drider with strength and speed, taking some damage from his lightning bolt and his heavy mace.
It was then that Claudia reached into her Bag of Tricks and produced a wand of phantasmal killer. She points the wand at the drider, and the horrors of Lloth enter the mind of the beast, forcing him to cower and die.
Her words to the drider, “Want to see a magic trick?” echo through the kitchen.
Fervis drops his spear, and walks away, proclaiming Claudia a wizard.
Bane stares at Claudia in awe.
The party rests then, still on alert with adrenaline flowing from the encounter.
And that’s where we leave our heroes until the next time.
