After dispatching them, they have a new navigator to help them out in the Underdark. They encounter some additional dangers along the way, including a sunken temple filled with slimes and some more gnolls. They meet a strang eintelligence gelatinous cube named Glabbagol who wants to travel with them. They eventually stumble across an anicent tomb from an unknown civilization that is being guarded by the angry spirits of the dead. They barely make it out of the fight alive, but walk away with a new sword, Dawnbringer.
