I don't know a great deal about the mechanics of D&D, but since I am pulling for our heroes to continue this journey I'd like to make the suggestion that you incorporate the classic movie training montage and gain some levels. The collectors seem like tough enemies, you've gotta admire the bravery/stupidity of our group, but how about some preparation?
At the very least, go back to the dick with the twelve-pack abs and tell him of your intention, maybe he can provide you with some mystical weapons or devices that can aid the infiltration?
I've played D&D a whopping three times in the past 6 weeks, and will say that from my experience, the dungeon master never threw anything our way that was too insanely outside our levels. If Nerd Poker and Sark is anything like my experiences, they could probably pop in and have quite a nail-biting, uphill battle of an adventure, but nothing so unruly as to require a training montage. Nobody wants to listen to characters grinding for experience and leveling meager stats.
That being said, I agree they should go back and talk to 12-Pack about resources, weapons, etc, and formulate a cool stealth mission/plan of attack. They don't even have their weapons back yet!
