Foxglove's Townhouse

This encounter has the potential to be surprising, disturbing and morbidly funny all at once. When the PCs arrive (even if they break in), they should be greeted as though they are old friends. The ugothols waste no time in inviting the party to dinner in order to position them appropriately for the ambush they have in store.

The townhouse now contains four faceless stalkers. Two of them remain disguised as Aldern and Iesha, putting on (very rough) airs of normalcy. The other two hide in nearby rooms, waiting for the signal to attack. I suggest the following encounter for a party of five adventurers:

Total: 1,400 xp (Level 7 Encounter)

The ugothols don't waste any time in switching back to their true forms - there is no use in denying their deception, and they're more comfortable in their own skins. The PCs can find 1,000 gold pieces in ten small bags (treasure parcel 5 from level 6) stuffed into the locked mantel compartment.

While the party tangles with the faceless stalkers within the townhouse, a second group of ugothols are orchestrating another trap for the PCs close by...
