If the party manages
to approach without Edarad hearing them (see Edarads description
below), they see him working at one of the large tables; a wax golem
stands unmoving in one corner.
If the party attempts
to speak with Edarad to discover his motives for exposing the town to
one of his hypnotic candles, he proves uncooperative, trying to charm
the PC doing the talking.

Immune to mind-influencing effects, poison, disease, and similar effects.
Not subject to critical hits, subdual damage, energy drain, or death
from massive damage.
Because their pliable bodies can absorb blows easily, wax golems take
only half damage from bludgeoning weapons.
(Ex): Wax golems have electricity resistance 10.

If Edarad hears
the combat in his storeroom (DC 10 Listen check), hell prepare
by casting mage armor, blur, and shield. If the party
hasnt moved into his inner chambers by that time, hell move
into his storeroom with his second wax golem. He begins the fight by
trying casting hold person on the character who looks like the
most dangerous melee combatant. If things go badly, Edarad will attempt
to use spider climb to escape through the holes in the roof in
