This week and for the remainder of this season, I will be posting weekly recaps in the form of a podcast, to see how it takes off. The feedback has been good so far and let's see how it goes until the end of the season.
Following the success the characters had in defeating the drow and defending the patrons of the Old Skull Inn, the characters receive a message from an important individual in town which bids them on to bigger and better things.
Rushing to the tower of Ashaba, tracks of the remaining drow lead them to the cellar under the tower. They encounter a dead-end, discover a secret entrance and battle an ambush party of Drow. The party learns of Valan Jaelre. The characters in this session get to meet Valan when they are ambushed by his croonies.
Once again, we have a special guest this week. Derek Myers from Dungeon's Master joins me on the podcast to talk about stuff that happened at his table.
Follow us on to the podcast of D&D Encounters Web of the Spider Queen, Session 5 - Valan Fights Back

B - Bone Spider (enemies who die within Valans Spider Bones aura)
V - Valan Jaelre
Derek also talked about a Treasure Summary sheet in the podcast for this season of D&D Encounters. It summarizes the XP and the treasure received to date. Each chapter session will be summarized and these handouts could be given to your players every week. This prevents losing the time in the session to answer to the demands of how much treasure we have gotten to date.
Go take a look and if you have any comments on how to improve the sheet, leave a comment and I will get it back to Derek, or just got to Dungeon's Master and contact Ameron himself.
