just wishing he could know she could enter safely, but it wasn't a choice he
could make. His eyes turn back to what Kha is now **

breath, turning away from the 'salting grounds', asking in after thought,
"Norf, you alright?" **
** (2050) Lellick just barely restrains himself from
wringing his hands. "That utter fool..." **
** (2032) Norfirion stares blankly off into his face
before realizing anything's happened. He gazes around with a rare confused look
covering his face. **
(2032) Norfirion: *space not face
(2032) Norfirion: "Wha....what
happened?" *he says shocked as he finally realizes the pillar of salt in
front of him is in the shape of Kha.*
** (2069) Maximus bows his head in Kha's memory.
Whispering a prayer to Odion to honor the priests sacrifice. **
(2064) Git: :glances to Suhail, asking
plainly: "Can he be saved?"
** (2032) Norfirion looks to the paladin confused.
"Saved? What happened?" *shakes his head* **
J'hzuu: (Somewhat stunned) "Kha took
(2076) Suhail: That is up to the god.
(2064) Git: :nods, dryly speaking:
"Alright then. We keep moving for now."
(2032) Norfirion: "What? My place? You
mean....." *shakes his head again* "I was careless..."
(2032) Norfirion: "Kha you fool, what
the hell were you thinking." *places his hand on the salt pillar.*
(2058) Kiral: "We must move, if we are
going to save Kha, or at least give him a chance to save himself"
** (2050) Lellick motions towards the new salt
pillar, "I suppose we're going to leave his.. remains.. standing
** (2069) Maximus looks to the elf, "Yes you
were careless, but now is not the time for mourning. We need to push on and
finish what we started, we can always venture to save him later." **
** (2032) Norfirion seems to stunned to be able to
fully grasp whats happened, in only anything instant to him. **
(2032) Norfirion: (sorry guys my typing is
frackin horrible tonight)
** (2064) Git moves on, looking about the Temple interior **
** (2058) Kiral moves in slowly, taking a glance back
toward Nimer one last time, before he moves in behind Git **
** (2032) Norfirion lingers with the statue for a few
minutes. He lowers his head dissapointed with himself and the outcome of recent
events, he lets out a deep sigh as he places his hand on the salt pillar once
more, his touch lingering before he finally forces himself to follow after the
others. "Sleep for now my friend. I promise you I will make this
** J'hzuu pats Norf on the shoulder, then turns and
heads after the others. **
** (2032) Norfirion glances back at Kha's remains
several times until he finally catches up with the group. **
** (2050) Lellick heads after the others, mumbling
something about how it's a good thing it doesn't rain in the desert. **
** (2069) Maximus walks next to Git, his shield
unslung and sword ready. **
(2064) Git: (Description, please...?)
** (2058) Kiral moves caustiously behind the pair,
taking his shield from his side and the blade from his hip **
(2076) Suhail: A 10' wide colonnade supported
by pillars surrounds the courtyard of the temple. Each pillar is topped by a
blossom with many petals.
(2076) DM: (eek)
(2076) DM: The sand within the courtyard is
wind-blown, for tiwsting and curling tracks upon it are probably due to the
ceaslessly shifting wind. The far wall of the court is topped by columns much
larger than those supporting the colonnade. The center, a wide portico opens
into a darkened room beyond. The columns hold up the temple roof.
** (2050) Lellick sticks towards the middle of the
group, looking up at the blossom on top of a closeby pillar. "Hmm."
** (2064) Git heads into the courtyard, aiming for
the darkened room. He keeps an eye on the ground before him though, wary of
what traps may wait beneath the sandf. **
** (2058) Kiral 's eyes make their way throughout the
courtyard examining the pillar and grandness of the temple **
** J'hzuu looks around in wonder at his surroundings,
sticking close to the others. **
** (2032) Norfirion leans upon his staff following
after the others inside the temple. His steps seem shakey and unsure. His mind
unable to concentrate on anything other than the fate of Kha. **
** (2058) Kiral slows his steps, letting Git and
Maximus gain a bit of ground on him **
** (2069) Maximus looks around the Temple, starting to appreciate the
architecture of the city. **
(2076) DM: The portico beckons you.
(2076) DM: Deep within the interior, all is
dark, as if a darkness beyond a bottomless void.
** (2064) Git looks into the void, can't resisting
the need to spit into the blackness and listening for a small splash sound **
** (2069) Maximus looks to Git, "You first? Or
should I enter and be the walking siege tower for a bit?' **
** (2058) Kiral stares blankly at the entrance,
having all his attention turned toward the darkness, "What now?" **
** J'hzuu peers into the blackness, then turns to
Norf. "Norf should check for magic in there" **
** J'hzuu gestures at the elf's staff. **
(2064) Git: ""I'm guessing this is
where the gold caps come into play." :glances to Suhail for Confirmation:
(2058) Kiral: "I think it is safe to
say the entire temple is radiating emmense magic"
** (2050) Lellick inches around the others, so he can
get a look at the portico and the darkness. **
** (2032) Norfirion turns his attention to J'hzuu,
snapping out of his daze. "Oh....yes you're right." **
** (2032) Norfirion raises his staff and speaks a
quick word of magic as he waves the staff about the chamber. (Detect Magic, 60'
** (2058) Kiral looks around fruitlessly for the
walking pink footed suitcase creature that is holding the caps **
** (2058) Kiral then turns to Git, "Do we
actually know what to do with the caps, how to arrange them, or anything?"
(2032) Norfirion: "Maybe they will
assemble themselves with magicka once they're all gathered."
** (2064) Git just shrugs as he examines the
structure for anything the caps would connect to. **
** (2058) Kiral moves a bit closer to examine how the
caps might work **
(2085) Yazut (enter): 23:04
** (2076) Suhail shrugs. **
** (2032) Norfirion approaches to have a closer look
at the caps, he turns to J'hzuu as he does so. "As Kiral said, this entire
place is radiating emmense magicka." **
** J'hzuu nods. "So... All must simply walk
in?" He doesn't look to happy with that thought. **
** (2064) Git pats his leg and whistles luggage over
to get the caps out of it **
(2058) Kiral: "The caps look like they
just interlock into place"

unstrapping the healing staff from his back before quietly casting a spell on
it. "Tevesh, safely illuminate our way." **
(2050) Lellick: (Casting Light)
** (2032) Norfirion waits for Git to retrieve the
drain caps from the luggage and looks them over once he's done so, trying to
determine any obvious way of assembling them together as a bridge. **

void beyond the portico.

works with the drainage caps **

keeping an eye on Lellick and his staff probing. **

before pulling it back, seemingly satisfied with the results. "..There's
definitely nothing in there." **

(2032) Norfirion: "Lets hope everything
else goes as smoothly."
(2076) DM: As each link fuses together, the
void beyond the portico becomes less dark -- or perhaps your eyes have adjusted
to the gloom.
(2076) DM: Floating in the void that surrounds
it is a huge white marble altar upon which lies a gem easily the size of a
child's fist, sparkling with a deep blue inner light.

"Now aren't you pretty thing...?"
(2058) Kiral: "Like I said, I guess
flying is not an option?"
(2076) Suhail: Lay the bridge of gold across
the void, and cross it. When you get to the altar, you will need to make a leap
** (2064) Git gets in position to move the bridge
instructed the others to help. "On 3... 1...2...3 eeeheave!" **
** (2058) Kiral helps Git move the bridge **
** (2032) Norfirion peers at the sparkling gem
through the darkness. He lends a hand in moving the bridge into place, as best
as he can. **
** J'hzuu assists in whatever limited way he can. **
(2076) DM: The bridge fuses to the ground and
crosses the void.
** (2050) Lellick keeps out of the way, not being
good with heavy lifting. **
(2076) DM: As it does so, one of the links
vanishes, so that the bridge comes up one foot short of the altar.
** J'hzuu raises a brow. "Is that not a bit...
small for a leap of faith?" **
(2064) Git: "A foot is hardly a leap of
Faith." :scratches his chin in suspicion

(2058) Kiral: "I think you mistake the
distance for the task...do not underestimate your own faith"

muttering as he walks slowly along the bridge. **
** (2064) Git follows across the bridge, waiting to
see how the others do in their leap before him **
(2076) DM: You come to the end of the bridge.
The void yawns beneath you into an endless abyss. So near, yet so far. The
altar is but a foot away...
** (2090) Maximus slings his shield across his back,
and sheathes his sword. Wrapping his holy symbol around his hand, he starts
whispering quiet prayers to his god, Odion, Patron of the Imperial Line. **
** (2050) Lellick watches the others go, waiting to
see what happens first. **
** J'hzuu crouches down in a very feline manner and
jumps across the gap. **
(2032) Norfirion: "I can't fail this
time, not again, there's too much at stake. Kha, Methiel, Rynduil, Pyrith, my
friends, everyone. I am the master of my own fate. I am in control." *he
mutters again and again to himself reassuringly*
** (2090) Maximus waits his turn, watching the
cloistered elf attempt the jump. **
** (2032) Norfirion holds his breath as the khajit
(2076) DM: J'hzuu lands on the altar safe and
** J'hzuu leaps from the bridge and lands on the
other side. He turns around to face the others, grinning. **
** (2032) Norfirion releases a breath of relief. **
(2064) Git: "Well... that seemed easy
** (2058) Kiral watches the Khajit make the leap and,
putting away his weapon and shield, begins to walk across the bridge **
** (2058) Kiral whispers a prayer to Elantra as he
walks, "God goddess, in which form do I best serve you, serve you in the
light I have been shown in nature, through you all blessing in the world are
** (2032) Norfirion glances to the others behind him
as he prepares to follow J'hzuu across the span. "If something should
happen to me, I know I haven't been.....well...I just want to say I'm sorry for
all the trouble I've caused." *And with that he leaps* **
** (2050) Lellick , seeing that everyone else has
stepped on the bridge, finally follows after them, stepping carefully. **
** (2050) Lellick pauses there for a moment, just
standing there before backing up and taking a running jump at the altar. **
(2076) DM: He lands on the altar safe and
(2076) DM: ...as does Norfirion, although he
seems less sure of his footing.
(2064) Git: :Assuming Norf makes it across,
Git follows after, making a big show of readying for a big jump before taking a

drops to his knees to avoid falling off the platform. He rises moments later,
his face covered in sweat. **

to the edge of the bridge, eyes closed, murmuring a prayer to his god, and
jumping forward **
whispering to Git, Jump please

manages to make it intact.

side, wiping the sweat from his brow, "Only a foot, but felt like an

examine the gem, checking its placement for any traps **
(2032) Norfirion: "Indeed it did."

word of magic as he scans the gem for its school of magic. (Detect Magic) **

(2064) Git: rt"Huh?" :glancing up
to the others: "What are you talking about? It was this far." :holds
his hands a foot apart: "You're overreacting."

gaining speed for the the jump, all the while praying, or to be more precise,
Max is reciting the basic tenents of his faith. He then jumps as he gets to the

** (2058) Kiral looks to Norf and then from Git back
to Norf, "I understand...I do" **
** (2032) Norfirion lowers his staff to the ground
turning his attention away from the gem. He tries to avoid looking into the
black abyss. "The magicka here is so strong, that I can't even determine
what type of magicka it is." *he notes to J'hzuu* **
** J'hzuu frowns. "That is not good..." **
(2064) Git: :If he finds no traps, Git
reaches out to take up the gem:
J'hzuu: "Perhaps all should just...
take it?" he stares intently at the gem.
** (2050) Lellick speaks distractedly, watching Max.
"Does it matter what it is?" **
(2032) Norfirion: "Only to my
curiosity." *he replies to Lellick's question*
J'hzuu: "Also, it would give all an
idea of what to expect. Necromatic magicka does different things than
evocation, which does different things than illusion"
** (2032) Norfirion nods in agreement as he glances
back to the gem and Git. **

the gem), Suhail vanishes from sight, and the void vanishes, instead becoming
(2076) DM: Immediately thereafter, a distant
chime begins to sound with regular frequency.

chiming is coming from. **

the change of environment: ".. we move on to the next round now?"
(2076) DM: Definitely not within the temple.

ground with a look of relief. **
** J'hzuu shrugs. "J'hzuu guesses so..." **
(2032) Norfirion: "This firm ground is
good, but that accompanying sound is too similar to an alarm spell."
(2058) Kiral: "Well, you unleashed
something with that pull Git"
** J'hzuu nods. "Perhaps all should move, in
case it is, and guards come" **
(2064) Git: "I have this nagging
feeling that the sound is coming from the monument we landed near"

of the temple, listening for the direction of the chiming **

makes haste out of the temple. **

turning back toward their landing point to find the obelisk. **
(2076) DM: The chiming sound seems to be coming
directly from the obelisk.
(2076) DM: It's glowing faintly.
** (2058) Kiral rides on Nimer who needs more than a
brisk walk to keep up with the others **
** (2064) Git casual hums an elven tune, as he
appraoches the obelisk. Pulling the gem from his pocket, he seeks out the
depression they found in the monument, figuring the gem may be the perfect fit.
** (2032) Norfirion approaches the obelisk, following
Git. "I hope this is suppose to happen." **
** (2090) Maximus unslings his shield and takes a
defensive posture when the group reaches the obelisk, incase something tries to
sneak up on them. **

"All that must happen shall happen."

I've ever heard."

survived, survived what?" **

nervously looking for signs of danger. **
J'hzuu: "J'hzuu would place a bet on
the undead... Or something even worse" He shudders a little, and his cloak
fades to a dark purple.
(2076) DM: The gem comes loose from the obelisk
suddenly, as a beam of golden light streaks with blinding speed to the
northeast. Simultaneously, another beam streaks to the northwest.
** (2032) Norfirion tries to follow the beams of
light, shielding his eyes from its brightness. **
(2032) Norfirion: (follow with his eyes that
(2076) DM: Suddenly, overhead, the sky ripples
in waves of clear light and then opens up, revealing an immense citadel
floating 1000 feet in the air. The structure, which is perhaps ten miles wide
at the base, has six elegant minarets. It appears that the legendary Citadel of
Martek has been here, in the open, all these centuries.
** J'hzuu 's eyes open, and his jaw drops a little.
J'hzuu: *widen, even.
** (2058) Kiral looks up, his jaw hanging,
"Unbelievable, I bet this has been he since I was a kid" **
** (2032) Norfirion staggers back in awe, his gaze
lifting skyward with wonder. **
(2032) Norfirion: "It's huge!"
(2076) DM: A pillar of light suddenly comes
down from the Citadel's base and bathes a spot of sand in its brightness.
** (2050) Lellick spots the change out of the corner
of his eyes, and stares straight up, stunned. **
** (2058) Kiral looks to the others,
"Kha...." his voice tailing off **
(2076) DM: Kha is nowhere to be seen.
** (2064) Git watches the gargantuan citadel with a
tired expression. "Great... more huge buildings to explore...." **
