(218) DM: Does everyone (with the exception of
Eric's PC) need a recap or are we all set?
** (213) Morti has just fainted away in the ball
room, at the delayed shock of his first kiss from a cute ghost girl **
(218) DM: Right, when last we left off, he did
that after Blaine faints.
(219) Trayn : "sheesh..."
(218) DM: But really, the reason why Blaine
fainted was because as soon as the ghost disappeared, a half-orc appeared in
its place. Seconds later, Morti faints.
(219) Trayn : "hey!" alarmed at

content grin stretching across the enchanted fabric of his mask **

(217) Kyla: "Settle down, it's jsut
another of those stupid delusions."
(216) MagnaZero: **The half-orc stares
focused, at the man in front of him who just fainted. He then looks around at
his unfamilar surroundings.**
(216) MagnaZero: "What is the meaning

please explain the meaning of all of this?"

known anything dead to smell this bad...."

level of the illusions

(217) Kyla: "Let's ignore it for a few
minutes, and get back to finding that ghost girl. It looks harmless
(218) Drenla: It's possible a spell of mine may
have misfired. I've done that in the past from time to time, but this is the
first time I've conjured a half-orc.

remark about "ignorant bastards"**

does mumble something along the lines of, " .... bu-buh... miss... I realleh
(219) Trayn : "its going to unsummon
(whispering): ok, thanks
** (216) Eldrak , deciding to get a better look of
this new place, starts to walk around a bit, but still keeps his eye on
(219) Trayn : "well get up you fools...
(218) Drenla: Describing the room once again to
everyone so they know what their surroundings look like.
(218) TaliesinNYC: Great Hall: This large, sparsely furnished chamber has a high ceiling
and a balcony running around the inner walls, 15' up. Footprints lead back and
forth the wide northeast corridor and the stairs along the south wall. A large
portrait of the first viscount of Mistmoor hangs over the fireplace.
(219) Trayn : "hmmm"
(218) Drenla: Probably not. (squints at the
half-orc) Looks real enough.
** (218) Drenla mutters incomprehensibly **
** (218) Drenla wrinkles his nose **
** (216) Eldrak walks toward the portrait and stares
at it curiously **
(218) Drenla: I suppose we might as well let it
tag along, as long as it doesn't try to kill us.
(219) Trayn : "what do you mean?"
(213) Morti: "E-eh?" :morti's eyes
flutter open to stare toward the ceiling: "I just had the wiedest

it, but when it didn't respond to my insults, I figured it must be another
illusion. Most halforcs would take some sort fo offence to being told they

a hold of your senses"
(218) Drenla: (mutters) It'll be the first time
since being at the Well that I've been in the company of an orc though. I never
got used to their smell.
** (216) Eldrak turns to Kyla sharply. "And is
suppouse human dont take any offence when they are called bastards, eh?"
(218) Drenla: You heard me. Might as well let
it tag along as long as it doesn't try to kill us. (Or as long as Reiner
doesn't try to kill it.) (chuckling)
(219) Trayn : "hey... its a real
(219) Trayn : "or really good
(213) Morti: "Orc.. smell?"
:raises up to look around the room and finds the new arrival. sniffing the air,
he comments honestly toward the stranger: "You smell like Reiner"
(217) Kyla: "If the boot fits..."
(213) Morti: :cocks his head curiously as he
sits up. asks Kyla: "He is he anyway?"
(218) DM: (OC: there are about three other PCs
in the group and their players are not here at present. A house rule I have is
that players who are not physically present have their characters in "PC
limbo". You must be physically in the room for your character to be in the
group if I am not playing him or her as an NPC)
(217) Kyla: "still undecided between a
improved issusion, and some total screwup of a magic spell.
(217) Kyla: ((Illusion))
(219) Trayn : "well lets get on with
this.... ready or not"
** (219) Trayn aproaches the next door and opens it
(218) DM: (also, pls describe your characters
so that Eric (and Eldrak) knows what you look like and vice versa)
(217) Kyla: "...A third possibility jsut
occured to me. I remember a story about a kiss turning some frog into a prince,
and the half orc just appeared when you kissed that gohost. could only be a

up and looks over the Eldrak, cosideringly: "I've never met a half-rc
before." :scratches head: "Never met an orc for that matter." :
strolling to the stranger he thrusts out the same hand he was scratching his
scarfed head with for a shake: "My name's Morti. Nice to meet you."
** (216) Eldrak , the half-orc in front of you, is a
hulking figure, standing a 6'8, and 284lbs. He has wild black human hair, a mix
of greyish and greenish skin, and solid brownish eyes. No matter what armor he
wears, he usually always a cloak with a hood on at all times, to hide his
(213) Morti: "Eh?" :glances back
to Kyla, then to the half-orc... grimacing: "I kissed you....?
(217) Kyla: "no, the ghost you kissed.
She disappeared, and the half orc showed up, though I'm not sure how this
happened. I was watching you feint at the time."
** (216) Eldrak stares a Morti coldly, as if he was
an enemy, and simply says, "The name is Eldrak." **
whispering to Morti, actually you have, at
Jeroth's Well, if you remember that far back
(whispering): was I with the group yet?
whispering to Morti, yes you were
** (217) Kyla is dressed in a very black suit, with
large amounts of bright, deep red accents which only add to her already foreign
appearence. She has extreemly weather dried skin with a almost supernatural tan
over already darkish skin. Around her waist is a 5 band silver chain belt
supporting a dagger sheath. Nothing else is easily visible, or easily concieled
on her, except her black hair peekingout from under a red scarf. Her shoulders
are bare, as is her belly, and there is no loose clothing for easily concieling
other items, yet she walks with a well armed attitude. **
(whispering): oh... ok then
whispering to Morti, I could be wrong of course
(213) Morti: The odd boy with the scarf
masking his face... At only ten and five winters this frail and innocent boy is
a walking mystery. Though, with a shy and gentle demeanor and a trick to his
scarf making it act out his expression in rather comical exaggeration few
people to no one would ever be concerened with him. A slender figure just over
five feet tall is covered head to toe at all times. He wears a faded navy blue
canvas jacket embroidered with thin, vine like, copper-color swirling patterns
down the arms and joining on the back in a swirling vortex design. Its fastened
by three buckles in the front and the cuffs end with three forks which reach
over the back and sides of his gloved hands. That is worn over a plain, loose
white linen tunic. His brown dark hide breeches are fitted and ornamented with
the same copper embroidering in columns down the sides, and are tucked into knee
high brown leather boots. His trademark is the checker pinstriped, white cloth
scarf which thoroughly wraps his head, leaving only a sliver of copper tone
skin visible around his kind dark blue eyes.
(219) Trayn : Trayn is a strong strapping
lad with deep green eyes and curly brown hair.
(219) Trayn : Just under 6' tall, he is an
imposing if not attractive human male.
** (213) Morti nervously retracts his hand offering a
meak chortle as he gives a last friendly: "Well.. uh... welcome aboard
(213) Morti: (brb)
** (216) Eldrak currently wears studded leather
armor, his cloak just over it. A longsword is at the side of his hip. **
(218) DM: (which door, Trayn?)
(219) Trayn : (the one im next too)
(218) TaliesinNYC: Kitchen: The room is cluttered with typical cooking paraphernalia
and furnished with counters and cupboards, a small table and two chairs.
(218) DM: A faint odor of fried bacon seeps
through the open door.
** (219) Trayn enters **
(219) Trayn : "outside door... and what
is this a pantry?"

and enters the kitchen. **

(213) Morti: :follows along with the
** (216) Eldrak doenst even look at Morti when he
answers. "Yeah." **
(219) Trayn : "hmm someone was cooking
in here... I smell bacon"
** (213) Morti gives a smirk, "mine too.
tonight's the first time I've seen ghosts" :leans in to whisper: "One
kissed me." **
(219) Trayn : "and ghosts dont cook
real food I believe"
(213) Morti: "Eh?" :sniffs at the
air and looks around for recent signs of cooking or new ashes in the fireplace:
(217) Kyla: "maby the orc illusion isn't
one, adn was just in here. I didn;t actualy see him materialize, he was jsut
standing there when I looked up.
** (216) Eldrak looks at Morti as if he was crazy
after the statement. **
(216) Eldrak: "Hmm...meat. Recently
cooked i believe."
** (219) Trayn pulls on the doors before him **
(218) DM: There's a door to the north and a
door to the left of that. Both are closed. A passage leads further into the
house. A door on the south wall stands closed. Outside, thunder booms as the
rain continues to fall.
(213) Morti: "that could be an illusion
too. you can make people smell things"
(218) DM: (North door or the one to the left?)
(213) Morti: (any windows?)
(218) DM: (Yes, looking outside. It's raining
(219) Trayn : (north door... but was your choice
(218) DM: (just want to clarify)
(213) Morti: (can we see a wing out the
windows that the southern door leads into or is it an exit. if there's a wing
to we see an lit windows in it?)
(218) DM: This appears to be a pantry. Several
sacks and boxes have been dragged into or stored here recently. A few are open.
(218) DM: As you open the door, a strand of
garlic falls to the floor.
(218) DM: (its an exit)
** (219) Trayn opens the other door **
(219) Trayn : "pantry... someone has
been in there too":
(213) Morti: "Probably where they got
the bacon from..."
** (219) Trayn opens a door leading to a stairwell?
(218) DM: (yes)
(218) DM: (leading down)
** (216) Eldrak gets a sucpicous look in his eyes.
"I cant shake off the feeling that someone other than us is here." **
(219) Trayn : "stairs down... we want
to go down there?"
(213) Morti: "yeah... ghosts and
possibly corrupt debt collectors..."
whispering to Eldrak, later I'll need to go over
with you as to where you are in terms of geography.
(217) Kyla: "Deffinately."
(213) Morti: :to trayn: "Vault's
probably downstairs. but we should probably check up in the tower for clues
about it's location and how to open it."
(219) Trayn : "well lets check ou tthis
hall ... roudn there and then go downstairs"
** (219) Trayn leaves the door open and thne hits the
hallf finding more doors **
** (217) Kyla follows **
** (213) Morti follows the priest **
** (219) Trayn opens the door **
** (216) Eldrak follows everybody **
whispering to Eldrak, you're still going to have
to read the files even though you're playing a half-orc ranger. don't think
you're getting off that easily. =P the reason is because you have to conform
your character to the world. I haven't yet done any documents on half-orcs but
I'll get around to it eventually.

bunks for six people.

(218) Blaine: No...not to my knowledge.
(219) Trayn : "same thing here"
(218) DM: (OC: Drenla and Blaine's
** (216) Eldrak decides to look around the wardrobe,
looking for anything valuable **
(218) DM: (Drenla is a human man, about the
height of a spear, with ice-blue penetrating eyes and sharp, patrician
features, and a long white beard. Usually garbs himself in long flowing light
blue or sky blue robes, he also carries an ivory staff that's capped with a
star sapphire. The staff is carved with all manner of runes.)
(213) Morti: "Well could he be an
ancestor? your grandfather? long lost cousin?"
(218) DM: (The mage is about four and thirty
winters. Blaine is a human man, in his late twenties, and is simply dressed --
or perhaps under-garbed in this party of adventurers. You have the impression
that he leads a life unknown to an adventurer and more like a city or country
dweller or a noble aristocrat.)
(218) DM: (brown hair, dark brown eyes, fair
and soft complexion)
(219) Trayn : ((bah.. i wanted Drenla to be
a hot chick... figures the DM ruins that))
(217) Kyla: ((lol))
(216) Eldrak: (hehehehe)
(218) Blaine: I don't really think so. None of
my immediate relations have the name "Thomas" or "Tom".
Seems more like a Western name to me than anything. Our line is of Imperial
blood, although none of us have returned to our ancestral lands in the North.
(217) Kyla: "Maby he was a servant

about a Westerner named Tommy staying here?"

his head. **
(213) Morti: "Wow, you really don't
know much about your family..."
(218) Blaine: I'm sorry, I can't remember. It's
possible, but my family hasn't been here in many years. Ever since the tragedy
of two centuries ago, we've lived elsewhere.

(217) Kyla: "we've been in her for a few
hours, seen several harmless ghosts, and one infected bath tub. Does anyone
else think this is clean enough?"
(218) Blaine: Well, I don't know much about my
ancestors. As I said, our life as we knew it was destroyed the night of the
tragedy. I'd read about it, but until the events of today, never knew the truth
of the matter.
** (213) Morti heads into room 15, searching around
for any personal effects, letters, or the like. the name Tommy in mind **

leave without helping them."
(213) Morti: "Oh, and I just
remembered... Rebecca told me to meet her in the loft at midnight"

looking for anything of value **
(218) Drenla: It's not quite moonrise
yet....surely you're not intent on meeting her, are you?
(217) Kyla: "Help them with what though?
It seems to me that evry time we find one, they run off. If they wanted help,
they'd show us some way in which we could."
(213) Morti: :to Drenla: "Well... it's
be rude not to show... wouldn't it?"
(217) Kyla: "Um.... Never mind. that just
answered my doubts."
(259) Trayn : ive got fog
(285) DM: much better
(285) DM: As you open the door, a musty smell
of dried grapes wafts up to your nostrils.
(285) DM: You descend the wooden, rickety
stairs, into a wine cellar.
(285) TaliesinNYC: Wine Cellar: This room is filled with casks and wine racks, though only
a few bottles remain and many of them are broken.
(259) Trayn : "hmmmmm"
(285) DM: There is a flight of stairs that
leads down, in the recesses of the chamber. A stone door stands closed to the
east. The sound of rushing water can be heard.

source direction of the water **

middle of the estate, right? was it running?

make certain rolls like Listen, Search and Disable Device

since mage armor has to be treated like real armor to ethereal creatures, I was
wondering, does that mean a character could touch an incorporeal being while
enveloped by the mage armor?

arms and the sleeves of her dress which she has rolled up to her elbows, as
well as spatters on her face as well.

other buildings that you saw)

(1323) Kyla: "Not again...."
(1302) DM: Looking up the stairs, you spot a
girl whose appearance is not entirely unlike the spirits you've seen thus far,
except that she's holding a crossbow aimed in Trayn's direction. Behind her is
a large, hulking human man in black leather armor and armed with a giant
(1302) Psyche: I thought I heard someone
tramping around in here....
(1302) Psyche: Who are you and what are you
(1304) Morti: "Uuuuuuuuhhhhhhh.....
hello?" :raises a greeting though unnerved hand:
(1304) Morti: "Are you a ghost?"
(1302) DM: She's also similarly dressed, except
in dark brown leather armor and a dark green hooded cape, black thigh boots
(1302) Psyche: Don't be ridiculous. Does this
look like I'm a ghost? (waves the crossbow in Morti's direction)

I'm here helping a Noble named Blane recover what was his by birthright. Are
you here to help also?"
(1304) Morti: :scratches head, and speaks
honestly: "If I could tell so easy I wouldn't ask"
(1306) Trayn : "so the real question
is... what are you doing here?"
(1302) Psyche: (turns to Kyla) Actually no, I'm
here, along with my companion, just as a refuge in the rain. Miserable weather
we're having. If it's all right with you, we'll stay out of your way.
(1302) DM: The fighter grunts in response.
(whispering): ready action, prepare to cast
color spray up the stares at them on first sign of danger

but you really should ask Blane if it's ok with him for you to be here. I'dt
Not my manse."

(1302) Blaine: Er, I am. (raises hand)
(1302) Psyche: I don't see your name written
anywhere on these walls.
(1304) Morti: "Did you guys kill a huge
spider in the stables?"
(1302) Blaine: Actually, friend, it's my
family's manse by right and title of birth.
(1302) Psyche: Oh? Is that so? And I'm sure ye
have the papers to prove it, eh? Seems like a piece of shoddy workmanship to
me. Couldn't even keep out the rain in one of the bedrooms.
(1302) Psyche: (ignores Morti)
(1304) Morti: "At least it's free and
you don't have to work for it"
(1302) Psyche: Well, milord, we'll stay out of
your way while ye go looting and pillaging. If ye were really who ye said you
were, you wouldn't be traipsing around with a bunch of hooligans and commoners
like my companion and I.
(1323) Kyla: "To be Honest, I'd feel
better seeing some papers too. I Just have faith in one of the other men who
was helping out. It's his word I believed, not Blane';s."

motioning her companion to watch you as well and retreats into the room above)

door shut as Psyche retreats into the passage beyond, never keeping the
crossbow out of your range **

in here? or is this just the door they came thru))

above? They're retreating into that passage and Bron the fighter is closing the
door that gains access to it.)

(1302) DM: (you were in room 42, and she and
her companion were on top of the stairs in 41. as you ascended into 41, they
backed into the tunnel and now they're retreating, but still pointing a
crossbow in Trayn's direction)
(1304) Morti: "The ghosts here need to
be freed. would it be ok for us to follow behind you. feel free to keep the
crossbow aimed on us"
(1302) Psyche: What ghosts? (pauses a moment)
(1323) Kyla: "I'd be willing to go
alone, adn without my dagger, if it amkes you feel safer."
(1304) Morti: "The ghosts in this
house. Three sisters who are being controlled by a raven... thingy, I think. We
have to set them free. please"
(1323) Kyla: "this corpse is the remains
of one of them. we are seeking the remains of the others so they can be
properly laid to rest."
(1302) Psyche: And why should we do this? For
all we know, you might be from the Network.

dumb with me.

anything about the god of truth and justice"
(1304) Morti: :glances to Kyla then back to
Psyche: "Oh... the silent Network. I heard of them. Uh.. we aren't joined
with them though."
(1306) Trayn : "you would know I could
never serve this Network you speak of"
(1302) Psyche: (to Blaine) The only right I
believe in, is the right to live my life without having to worry about the
rights you nobles believe in, such as the "right" to ruin the
commonfolk with your petty desires and wants.
(1304) Morti: (hope she can sense motive,
cause Morti is incapable of bluffing anyway)
(1323) Kyla: "...Then you'll know his
followers are the cause of much needless suffering, adn death, but that's
besides the point."
(1302) Psyche: Hm. Well, Bron and I will think
about it. In the meantime, don't try to follow us or you'll regret it.
** (1302) Psyche retreats further as Bron continues
to pull the door shut. **
(1323) Kyla: "You may want to reset your
simple needle trap then."

commenting. "You kind of look like them, ya know? The sisters that is....
There's a picture up in the ball room if you wanna see" **
(1302) Psyche: Good, I'll do that.

hear footsteps retreating.

know that blane can be trusted either. they had a point."
(1302) Blaine: Thank ye for believing in me. I
truly appreciate it. Ays, no reason to seal them in, but I wouldn't want them
to remain here much longer either.

wreason to dseal them in."

(1302) Blaine: They might be thieves from the
sound of her story. All the more reason to be wary of them, but they haven't
shown us reason to injure them however.
(1304) Morti: :looks to the needle:
"What about it?"
(1302) Blaine: Ah...
(1302) Blaine: Eh? What is this?
(1306) Trayn : "I trust those with open
hands than weapons pointed at my chest"
(1323) Kyla: "They planted this as a
trap in that door. if we let them wander around, they could do similar things
elsewhere in the manse"
(1323) Kyla: "I haven't bothered takeing
a closer look, but I'd bet there was something mroe than jam on this one."
(1302) Blaine: Then seal them in. But they may
have another way of leaving, so let us make haste then.
(1323) Kyla: "That's the idea.
(1304) Morti: "Like they were expecting
friendly visitors in this place... that still doesn't make them enemies"
(1323) Kyla: "they will know they are
sealed in, and being rogues, unless there is a third way in, they will get out
before we can find the other way in."
(1306) Trayn : "and its not like they
cant be hearing us right now"
(1317) Eldrak: "I dont like these guys
at all. Im going with seal them in.
(1323) Kyla: "I'm counting on that

trust us. we out number them, and are mostly well armed. We also have a right
to not trust them, they are trapping doors in the manse that could seriously
injure or kill one of us."
(1323) Kyla: "This forces some sort of
action on our part as a agressive defence."
(whispering): is there anything sticking out
on the outside of the stone door?"

on the needle trap they have n the door. (trying to see if it's reversable to
fire inward, not outward) **

but at the same time, their actions show them to be untrustworthy folk. Ye have
my leave to defend yourselves and take appropirate action.

panic. they were worried about us being from that network. they might be being

necessarily an unowned house.

even greater weapons?"

get out of the rain and no one's living there, who's it hurting?"
(1302) Blaine: But owned by my family by right
and title of birth.
(1323) Kyla: "Did I not jsut demonstrate
the same nefarious skills a rogue has? Shouldn't I be guilty to then?"

intent that determines action and ye have shown honor thus far. I have seen
none on their part.

on their part."

time! I am due to present my debt at Court in six days time. Why would ye do
this and ruin me?

however make me believe you have him decieved."

tavern you said you needed help.. really needed help, and so we're here. BUt we
aren't here to judge or hurt anyone. Don't ask us to, or at least I have to
rethink my decision to help you."

slightly pleading expression on the scarf:

needlessly then. But I want them gone from this house. The most important
pursuit we have right now is to locate my family's legacy. The rest can follow

much as share a roof over the heads of those who need it?"

inwards, but they are aware of it's location, and will surely see what I've
done to it. Blane. Your being with us is not exactly helping matters. It would
be good if you would wait here, and warn them when you hear them comeing
towards this door."
(1302) Blaine: Morti, they probably do have
means to stay out of the rain. I just want them out of here. (shaking his head
and walks up the stairs)

cold words **

to them, or you. I will resume the search. putting the spirits to rest is a
good thing. the matter of ownership can wait, but will be proved one way or the
other before I allow you access to the legacy."

amount to cover your debt to where ever it needs to go, but before you can use
it for your debt, I want proof of ownership."

should have been done a long time ago"

family was never one for ceremony when it didn't need to be done.

and if you would Blaine.. that would be nice as well"
(1323) Kyla: "Let's just get the remains
in the mauseleum, and give them a ceremony. I'll wait by the door here while
the ceremony is preformed, so blane can be a witness to it. as a probible
family member, he wshould be there to see it, and not guarding a door."
(1323) Kyla: "should we give them
seperate burials, or all at the same time?"
(1302) Blaine: I think a separate burial would
be nice, there being no skeleton for the other two at the moment.

door, since his arms are full **

end of the room. Skeletal remains have been strewn about the place. The walls

back off to the door, then call for them. I really only am seeing if they take
me hostage/kill me, or if they can be trusted. There was no way to talk to them
on an even ground with us outnumbering them 5 to 2. Hopefully, this will allow
them to talk to us as a group, but if they insist, it can be with me, or any of
the others alone.

whispering to Kyla, your voice echoes in the
chamber, but there is no response even after a few minutes.
(1302) Drenla: I said, ye once said that I was
a persistent jerk. No? I must be mistaken then.
(1302) Drenla: (chuckling)
(1304) Morti: "Maybe Reiner did"
(1304) Morti: "Say... Blaine.... do you
know much about your family's ancient history? say powerful wizards or fiends
or somesuch they may have taken down, who would want revenge?"
(whispering): check stairs for traps, then
door at bottom for traps. if none, knock on the door.
(1306) Trayn : "well its gone.. just
another bit of crazyness"
(1304) Morti: "Perhaps defeated by the
one who used that shield in the manse?"
** (1306) Trayn continues with his work **
** (1317) Eldrak head perks up at the sound of the
word 'wizard' **
** (1304) Morti watches over Trayn's ministrations
while awaiting an answer **
whispering to Kyla, no traps
(1302) Blaine: Hm, now that you mention it, ays
there is. (frowns)
(1306) Trayn : and eventually....
(1302) Blaine: A necromancer-priest of Morgaul
who was an archnemesis of one of my ancestors. He swore revenge eternal at the
moment of his destruction, that even the grave would never be able to conquer
his spirit and that he would see us to ruin. However, we never gave that story
(whispering): knock on the door
(1304) Morti: "What was his name?"
(1306) Trayn : "yes credence is
becoming stronger with these poor ghost girls"
(1302) Blaine: I remember reading somewhere
that Shaundra, a famous justicar of Solnor, led a war party that completely
decimated a necropolis that he was constructing in what is now Banehold, near
the Dead Marches.
(1302) Blaine: Hm? I can't recall. Started with
an N. (scratches his head)
(1302) Blaine: Narlus or something like that.
whispering to Kyla, no response
(whispering): still voices in there?
(whispering): ((listen +8))
(1302) Blaine: Rest, O harried spirit. May ye
find what rest ye are denied, ye who lived so short a life. May the Eternal
Judge find you worthy to seek your rest in the plains of the Beyond and may
your sojourn be a short one. Go with my blessings and my love, sweet sister.
whispering to Kyla, no
(1304) Morti: (knowledge check anyone?)
** (1302) Blaine kneels and prays over the skeleton
as Trayn lays it to rest. **
(whispering): go back, and wait for the
party. re close, and set the stone door trap
whispering to Kyla, ok
(1306) Trayn : "that was very nice
** (1302) Blaine rises and blinks. **
(1302) Blaine: 'Twas only what was right, my
friend. And now, let us resume, but after you send her away.
** (1304) Morti bows his head in reverence as the
rites our carried out **
(1304) Morti: "Send who away?"
** (1306) Trayn recites a few words... **
(1306) Trayn : "... and take this
child... who too few summer knew.... into your embrace... o blessed
** (1306) Trayn finishes the eulogy and prayer.... **
(1306) Trayn : "well it is done"
** (1304) Morti gives a final bow to the body,
promising, "We'll go find your sisters now" **
(1306) Trayn : "lets continue with our
(1302) Blaine: Very well, then. Let us resume
our search. (walks up the stairs)
** (1304) Morti heads back up stairs out into the
** (1317) Eldrak follows up the stairs **
(1302) DM: You return to the room where Kyla
** (1304) Morti heads back toward the house **
** (1306) Trayn gets back in the house **
(1302) DM: (map's acting up so won't reload)
(1302) Blaine: She's laid to rest. What now,
(1304) Morti: :to kyla: "Anything from
the otherside of the door?"
(1323) Kyla: we look for the remains of the
(1306) Trayn : "well lets check out
(1323) Kyla: "There were voices behind a
second door in there, but they stopped when I knocked on that door.
(1306) Trayn (whispering):
when are we stopping... i could go for 22 or
(1323) Kyla: "I think they really intend
to leave us alone, if we don't bother them."
(1306) Trayn : ((i just got map and fogish))
whispering to Trayn , when do you need to go?
(1304) Morti: "Which door?"
(1323) Kyla: "Behind the stone one is a
stair case down, and a nother wooden door."
(1317) Eldrak: "I say we go after
(1304) Morti: "Think the voices were
the other two?"
(1304) Morti: "the big guy and the girl
(1323) Kyla: "It's very likely they are
after the same thing we are, so it does sound like a reasonable thing to do,
even if it comes from an appiration."
(1323) Kyla: "Yes."
(1323) Kyla: "we may even be able to recruit
(1306) Trayn (whispering):
need to go shopping eventually before store
closes... "earlier the better"
(1306) Trayn (whispering):
but i have some time...
(1304) Morti: "Well, maybe we can try
reasoning again, just for the righ to search that part of the basement for any
whispering to Trayn , in 30 min then
(1302) DM: (stopping in 30 min)
(1317) Eldrak: "Recruit there help? I
dont think so. Not a bunch of thieves"
(1306) Trayn : "they will be leary of
us seeking them out"
(1306) Trayn : "will lead to a
misunderstanding and most likely violence"
(1323) Kyla: "I only counted one rogue,
and you've already enlisted one with the same skills, so watch your
(1304) Morti: "we have to try."
(1306) Trayn : "nor would I welcome their
(1317) Eldrak: "I will watch my tounge
when i wish to, human."
(1323) Kyla: "this door seems to be the
most likely place to hide a fortune behind in this manse. It may be elsewhere,
but this is my best guess."
(1323) Kyla: "besides, if they are after
the same thing, we should keep close incase they find it."
(1304) Morti: (is the stone door open?)
(1302) DM: (no)
(1302) DM: (Kyla closed it I believe and reset
(1323) Kyla: "Little orkling appiration.
You are not an invited conjuration, and would do well to understand fully that
while I dont like violence to living beings, you are a spell gone bad, and have
no rights yet."
(1323) Kyla: ((no))
(1323) Kyla: ((it's closed, adn trapped
(1323) Kyla: ((yes))
(1323) Kyla: "it's ok though, the trap
is set to fire inward if tampered with, not out."
(1306) Trayn : "I don't remember anyone
putting you in charge Kyla"
(1306) Trayn : "and I tire of your

when you openit. we don't twant it going off on us if we decide to make a hasty
(1317) Eldrak: "You have no authority
to tell me about my rights. Now, if you may excuse me, I must move on, and stop
wasting my time with the likes of you."
(1323) Kyla: "Funny, I seem to remember
just beign asked what to do now. That to me was an invitation to give at least
an opinion, if not an order."
** (1306) Trayn looks to figure out more
information... and chooses the next door **
** (1306) Trayn shakes his head... and tries to
ignore her **
** (1304) Morti shakes his scarfed head wearily,
getting frustrated with all the pointless argument. Without further discussion
he moves forward to push open the stone door to head forward **
(1302) DM: ok, hold on.
(1306) Trayn : "Don't listen to her..
she just seems to be in a foul mood"
(1306) Trayn : to eldrak...
(1304) Morti: (do I need a str check or
(1302) DM: The fog insists on acting up, so
just try to keep OC knowledge out of the way, ok?
(1302) DM: If Trayn opens the next door, that's
the door to 39.
whispering to Morti, you're opening the door to
the passage that leads to 39?
(1323) Kyla: ((doubt it, it's not liocked,
** (1306) Trayn thinks this is idiocy and lets it
known he wont follow them **
(1306) Trayn : "I wont follow a viper
into its lair"

Kyla was in.)
(1302) DM: Morti opens the door that leads to
the passage to the next room.
(1306) Trayn : "they will take hostile
action if you enter... and I dont think i could talk our way out of a
(1306) Trayn : "they have been very
clear about their feelings"
(1323) Kyla: "What do you suggest we do
to prepare for this bit of necessary stupidity?"
** (1304) Morti heads into the passage, dropping his
crossbow, pack and his dagger on the stairs as he makes his way over to knock
on the door, calling to anyone within, "Are you two there?" **
(1323) Kyla: "Guess the decision has
** (1323) Kyla hurrys after Morti hopeing he survives
(1302) DM: No response is forthcoming.
(1304) Morti: :holding up his hands in a
show of peace, should they be watching through cracks in the door or some such,
he offers in consolation: "I'm unarmed, so please don't attack. I just
want to talk."
** (1317) Eldrak slinks in the shadows, watching
Morti carfully, in case anything backfires. **
(1317) Eldrak: 8carefully
(1302) DM: Still no response.
** (1304) Morti looks back. "I don't think
they're in there" **
** (1306) Trayn awaits in the room for disaster to
(1317) Eldrak: "Well, mabey we should
just go in then."
(1304) Morti: "Kyla would you
mind....?" :gestuing toward the door, figuring it best she test for traps:
(1323) Kyla: ((can only see 3 doors. North,
east, and west. is there any to the south?))
(1323) Kyla: "which door?"
(1302) DM: (you're in the passage to 39)
(1302) DM: (as far as I know, no one's opened
the door to 39)
(1302) DM: (pls clarify if this is not the
(1323) Kyla: ((north one, or east one?))
(1304) Morti: :points to the door to 39:
** (1323) Kyla listens at both doors for noises **
(1302) DM: (my understanding is that Morti
opened the door to the connecting passage to 39. he is now in that passage,
waiting to open the door to 39. the rest of the party is right behind him.
(1304) Morti: (west door... to enter 39)
(1323) Kyla: ((ok))
(1323) Kyla: "this one isn';t trapped.
(1323) Kyla: "already checked it"
whispering to TaliesinNYC, [1d20+9] -> [9,9]
(1304) Morti: (yeah, you said you knocked on
it and the voices inside stopped)
whispering to Kyla, no noises
(1323) Kyla: ((thought we were in 39 already.
(1302) DM: (no, you haven't entered 39. you've
explored 41 and 42 but not 39.)
(1302) DM: (the map fog is going haywire, so
(1323) Kyla: (yes, it's not trapped. already
checked it, jsut never opened it))
(1304) Morti: "okay" :opens the
door to head into 39:
** (1323) Kyla opens that door **
(1302) TaliesinNYC: Trophy Room: As you open the door, you are greeted by the sight of an
enormous emerald drake coiled upon a mound of treasure, its head reared back
and its mouth thrown open in the classic pose that has been the last sight of
too many adventurers.
(1317) Eldrak: (yes, from my understanding)
(1306) Trayn : (im in 41... looking at them)
(1302) DM: (OC: Emerald drake = GREEN
(1304) Morti: (correct)
(1304) Morti: (though we are entering now)
(1302) DM: We can stop here then. (grins
(1323) Kyla: ((yes))
(1302) DM: Next session, you're going to have
to deal with an emerald drake. (wide grin)
** (1317) Eldrak eyes pop up at the sight of treasure
whispering to Trayn , now, now, no telling them
what it really is hehehe
(1304) Morti: (real emerald drake or a
(1302) DM: As far as you can tell, it is a real
emerald drake, and it's about to inhale.
** (1317) Eldrak gets supcicous though, and inspects
the room carefully **
(1304) Morti: "Uuuuuuuuhhhhhhh....."
(1306) Trayn : stay tuned next time
(1304) Morti: "And so death came upon
the brave yung adventurers swiftly and without mercy:"
