to come with us. We are about to goto a castle full of undead and deities"
(975) Ajaiyah: "Deities?"
(989) Kha: "Or so I suspect"
(989) Kha: "I was going to wait to tell everyone, but I guess enough of us
(989) Kha: "Well the area we are going seems to be dominated by a massive
castle with lots of guards, mostly human. and undead. There's a strange power
emanation as if someone or something, deep within the castle, is drawing
sustenance from the Dremrealm. The source of this power could be one of two
deities Oneiros, and Mania, or something else I do not know about. Mania is
also known as Delirium, she is an Aspect of Oneiros and it is said that you
cannot speak to Delirium without being like her in some aspect, some way, or
risk losing your mind forever. So prepare accordingly, we may be visiting a

offers it to Ajaiyah. **
** (1024) J'hzuu flicks his hand and a silver dagger emerges from his sleeves.
He holds it to Ajaiyah. "J'hzuu does not really need it. He uses his
magics, and if he must fight up-close" he shrugs and fans his fingers,
causing his claws to spring from his fingers. "He is still not unarmed,

(1029) Git: "I figure the 'Goddess' is Takalara." :Git speaks
suddenly as he appears in the doorway, finally out of bed.:
(1029) Git: "It seems she is following an old prophecy of a hundred years
ago." :looks Ajaiyah over, and offers an odd snicker: "I guess she
can tell the future after all."
(989) Kha: "I thought Takalara was a mortal ruler"
(1008) Rin: "Either's a possibility. Or both."
(1029) Git: :turns to Kha: "Perhaps she's mortal, but she's presenting
herself as a goddess. Apparently Nobles in Pandar are worshipping her as a
scapegoat from a prophecy foreseeing the destruction of all Kern.
(989) Kha: "Well I guess we will find out when we get there"
(1029) Git: "Tell me something, Kha... can someone who follows one of yuor
gods know the future?"
(989) Kha: "Yes, many are oracles or seers"
(1029) Git: "Are there foretellings ever wrong?"
** (989) Kha shrugs "It depends on the interpreter I sapose" **
(1041) Baralis (enter):
(1029) Git: "So... if she is a seer, then chances are, she knows we're
coming, how we'll come and what we'll do?"
(1008) Rin: "It seems likely that they can be wrong. I mean, the very act
of telling someone about the future could grant them the power to change it.
Or, in trying to change it, they could bring the event about. Though you then
have to ask yourself if that event would have ever occured if someone had not
(989) Kha: "If she is just a seer and not a Godess she has far more power
then I have ever seen. The power I felt at the castle was imense and as I said
there are only two that I know of who could do that"
(1029) Git: "Maybe she is more than a seer, a chosen avatar perhaps?"
(1029) Git: "Unless she is outright usurping a god's power."
(1008) Rin: "Or perhaps she's just stealing power. Regardless, nothing
gets accomplished if we just stand around."
(998) Lellick: "By destroying an avatar... I cannot imagine that the god
would be happy with us."
(989) Kha: "Could be, As Fate told us only Oneiros' Aspects are allowed to
mettle in mortal affairs"
(1041) Baralis (exit):
(1008) Rin: "Tough. He'll have to get over it."
(989) Kha: "As for a Dreamspeaker being wrong. History is like a river
flowing endlessly...there is little one can do to stop it, but much one can do
to divert its direction...yet no matter what may happen, things have a way of
righting themselves again. So You may divert the prophacy for a time, but the
goal it was ment to achive will be reached in the end"
(1008) Rin: "But who knows what that is."
(1029) Git: "Thank you for that bleak note. But right now, I'd rather
focus on disrupting her prophecies."
(989) Kha: "Mania is a she, and she represents Delirium or Insanity.
Though the Fates said to befriend Mania you must be able to divine the meaning
behind her actions. So if it is her or her Avatar, then figuring this out
should help us"
(1008) Rin: "Shall we go pay her a visit? She did invite us, after
(989) Kha: "Aye we are going to, just not today. We can leave with the sun
tomarrow. I still have some buisness to take care of here in town today"
** (998) Lellick starts to nod, but then turns to look at Kha. "What sort
of business could possibly be more important than dealing with this?" **
(989) Kha: "Would you like to go shoping Ajaiyah, it seems you are in need
of some equipment and clothing"
(975) Ajaiyah: "I'd love to."
(989) Kha: "Several things Lellick, like being prepared"
(1008) Rin: "Prepared, how?"
(1008) Rin: "A letter to divvy up your belongings for your next of kin,
(989) Kha: "Like everyone having clothing would be a good start"
** (989) Kha head out to the market with Ajaiyah **
(998) Lellick: "Buying clothes shouldn't take all day..."
** (1008) Rin watches Kha leave. "Well, I'm ready to go. We could leave,
and he could catch up at some point." **
(975) DM: ((not going to RP shopping...is there more?))
(1017) Agatha: "No, it won't. Learning the road and the troubles along it
might take a while though. We may need a guide."
(1008) Rin: "Could you actually find someone crazy enough to come with
(989) Kha: (( After shoping Kha is going to stop by the Masquers guild and let
Cerwyth know he is leaving town for a while, and introduce him to Ajaiyah.
After that he wants to stop by the WhiteTemple to see if the Ascetic got the other slave ))
(1017) Agatha: "It's big city. I'm sure it won't be much trouble to buy
** (998) Lellick laughs a little at that. "I suppose you're right. Still,
the faster we can set out, the better." **
(1008) Rin: "Oh, yeah, I suppose we could. 'Hey, we need to go visit the
house of a goddess, do you think you could guide us? We will pay you, and your
funeral service is on us.' "
(975) DM: ((ok.))
(1029) Git: "Don't worry. It shouldn't be to hard to find our way. After
all, we're the only ones who were invited."
(1017) Agatha: "It's all in how you phrase it, Rin. Git will be more than
happy to demonstrate, I'll wager."
** (1017) Agatha gets up. "In the meanwhile, I've my own affairs to look
into. I should be back in a few hours." **
(1008) Rin: "Well, I'm going to cast my vote for not endangering someone
else's life. I'm sure it's dangerous outside, but everywhere is dangerous. If
the choice is between waiting for Kha and a guide, and braving the dangers
between us and Talakara, I'd rather the latter. I'm sure Lellick's family
jewels agree with me."
(1029) Git: (Git will spend the day out and about meeting up with what contacts
he made the night before, and tying up loose ends in town.)

you. I am stunned by your charity. Truly." His tone is about as dry as

nothing of it, Sir Halfling." **

(975) DM: After a few moments, Devian comes out.
(989) Kha: "Ajaiyah you can return to the Inn if you wish" ** pulls
out his room key ** "Of course you are free to stay as well, just not sure
on how your view of other religions has changed"
(975) Devian: "Can I help you?"
(975) Ajaiyah: "No, I shall stay." (seems fascinated)
(989) Kha: "Hello, yes I spoke with Erosh about sending a Nezumi slave,
that I saw at the auctions, along your route and I was wondering if he was able
to do so. I also wanted to ask you for any information you can give me on
Talakara. I heard about a prophacy and her being a Godess, and well you know
more information is better"

well as long as he is free."
(975) Devian: "Or perhaps you might encounter him in your travels. It is a
wide, wide world out there."
(989) Kha: "Aye that would be good as well, though I dont know if he would
want to go to a castle full of undead"

(975) Devian: "Officially, nothing. Unofficially, she is worshipped by
most of the people in Pandar. She is the ultimate authority in all matters be
they temporal or spiritual in the duchy."
(975) Devian: "She is not a true divinity, as far as we are able to
determine. She is formidable however."
(989) Kha: "Aye if the power I felt from her castle while dreamwalking is
any indication. It brought to mind Mania or Oneiros himself, though my
experiance is limited in the dreamrealm."
(975) Devian: "Hm, that is interesting."
(975) Devian: "As far as we can tell, she is an archmagus of considerable
power. However, it is possible that she may have other resources of which we

she were seems to be drawing sustenance from the dream realm itself. I came to
get your opinion of her as you have more expirence with her then I"
(975) Devian: "Well...not really. Herrod was the authority on all matters
relating to this 'Goddess' as well as the main diplomatic plenti-potentiary
liasion between Pandar and Heathwold ((OOC: Heathwold is the duchy where
Heathwatch is located)).
(989) Kha: "If it is Mania then I just need to be able to divine the
meaning behind her actions. Which, if you know anything about the Aspects of
Oneiros, may prove dificult"
(989) Kha: "Well that is all I wanted to know. I'll keep an eye out for
the Nezumi and send him your way if he does not with to travel with my friends
(975) Devian: "This one thing I do know. If it is an Aspect of Oneiros you
are dealing with, then you might not know it until it is too late."
(989) Kha: "Thank Erosh for me for freeing my friend Ajaiyah, I would not
have had the money to buy her myself"
(989) Kha: "If it is an Aspect of Oneiros then I will know it when the
time is right. I must speak with them all. I was given a prophacy that said as
much, and the Fates have clerified it some."
** Devian raises his eyebrows at hearing that, but says nothing. **

things grow dark."

now on the road to what is supposed to be Caer Thorne)) ** (51) Kha keeps watch in the woods as the walk

It is quite different." (74) Agatha: "Aye, it's nice to finally
walk around without having to worry if that's me that I smell cookin'." (51) Kha: "True. I like it better, but
that may be because I didnt grow up in the Desert" (52) Lellick: "Anything's better than
getting sand in your clothes." ** (56) J'hzuu shrugs. "Here there is still
dirt." ** (61) Git: :shrugs without looking up from
his book: "I found it quite exotic. I hope to go back there some
day." (42) Ajaiyah: "I had heard tales of lands
such as this but never thought them to be true." (61) Git: :smirks: "Trust me, there are
far more interesting places than this in the world." (42) Ajaiyah: "At least here, I do not
expect to meet a vishap or a yak-man." ** (51) Kha laughs "How
does the reality hold up to the tales?"
** ** (62) Rin doesn't have anything to add, so he keeps
to himself. ** (42) Ajaiyah: "More interesting than
this?" (gestures at the rolling plains and light forest around you) (61) Git: :nods: "Try the deep woods
for a wilder touch. Or maybe you'd like to venture out for you're first see
voyage." (61) Git: (sea even#) (42) Ajaiyah: "There are stories of a lake
as far as the eye can see but water that you cannot drink. And of silver that falls
from the sky. And sherbet in the mountains." (42) Ajaiyah: "I would like to very much,
yes." (61) Git: "Yup. There are some very
interesting places in this world." ** (61) Git grins as he returns to his journal. ** (51) Kha: "We were not too far from the
'Lage as far as you can see but cannot drink' Not sure what sherbet in the
mountains is saposed to be, Snow maybe? And silver that falls from the
sky?" ** shugs ** "Rain maybe, but you said you have been captured for
months so I am sure you have seen rain" (74) Agatha: "Perhaps snow then?" (42) Ajaiyah: "What is snow?" (61) Git: "I guess you'd call it frozen
rain." (42) Ajaiyah: "Rain I am familiar with, as
it does rain in Zayal. Not often, but enough." (56) J'hzuu: "Sounds painful..." (74) Agatha: "Aye, when it gets cold
enough, the rain freezes into these tiny flakes." ** (51) Kha looks around to see if any mountains can
bee seen from their path ** (74) Agatha: "They say no two flakes are
alike. But who'd waste their time comparing so many flakes is beyond me." ** (74) Agatha reconsiders this as her eyes falls on
Kha. ** ** (51) Kha points at the mountains in te distance to
the east "There is probably snow there,
but it's too far away to be helpfull now"
** ** (51) Kha resumes his watch of the woods, still
hoping to spot the escaped slave ** (61) Git: :noting Kha's persistant watch,
reminds once more: "Even if the rat thing is escaped in this direction, I
doubt it would approach you anyhow. Leave it be." ** (74) Agatha lets the others talk and goes back to
reading her book as she walks along. ** ** Ajaiyah goes back to watching the scenery around
her. ** (51) Kha: "It may not, but I can approch
him or her if I see thm. Offer food and clothing, it is col out if you have
forgoten, wraped in your winter clothing, which reminds me Ajaiyah you may see
snow since it is winter, maybe it will snow soon" (51) Kha: (( *Them, *cold )) ** (61) Git shakes his head and continues jotting
notes in the journal. ** (61) Git: (hmmm... FF?) (42) DM: ((ok)) (51) Kha: (( Fine by me. Kha will want to
stop about a half a days journy from the Keep to sleep and plan, but other then
that he is only looking for the escaped slave )) (74) Agatha: ((Ag's only reading the manual
she acquired from Martek as she goes along. Maybe 4 hrs a day)) (42) DM: Ok. You settle down in a rather large
clearing for the night. (42) DM: This seems to be a rather unusual
clearing... ** (51) Kha walks around the clearing investigating
it before settaling down for the night ** (42) DM: In one part of the area is a large
mound of rubble. In another part is a well filled with cool water. Third, are a
ring of stone blocks -- perfectly symmetrical stone blocks -- set in a perfect
circle. (42) DM: The area within the blocks seems to
have been charred to a crisp. ** (62) Rin moves over to examine the large mound of
rubble. ** whispering to Rin, Whatever it was was a large
structure because of the amount of rubble. ** (61) Git glances between the charred ring of
stones and the rubble nearby, pondering aloud, "Did someone explode a
tower?" ** (62) Rin: "Looks like it was some sort
of structure." ** (61) Git walks the perimeter of the stone ring,
trying to divine the structure which once stood there. ** ** (74) Agatha investigates the circle of stones,
trying to discern its purpose or what it might have been. ** (61) Git: Knowledge: Architecture and
Engineering Skill Check: [1d20+7] -> [15,7] = (22) ** (52) Lellick moves slowly over to the well,
looking down in it but not daring to even touch the water. ** ** (51) Kha walks over to the well and whispers
'Oneiros, The Mistlord, I ask of you to banish Mania from my mind and let me
see clearly.' ** whispering to Lunauc, possibly a tower of some
sort ** (62) Rin picks through the rubble for a few
minutes. "Some sort of wizard's tower, looks like." ** ** (51) Kha draws some water and takes a drink then
prepares camp while the others look around ** ** (61) Git searches among the ring then among the
rubble for remnants of furnishings or belongings of the former residents,
seeing if he can get a clue to who this structure belonged to. ** (74) Agatha: "Great, more magicka. Can
you tell if this thing was razed to the ground or blown up from the inside? ** (51) Kha finishes setting up camp then climbs into
the well calling out "Come look at
this" ** ** (62) Rin closes his eyes for a moment, then
glances about the clearing. He focuses on the ring of stones. ** (61) Git: "What? if there's something
unsavory floating in the water, I'd rather not." ** (56) J'hzuu rubs his forehead gently, his eyes
taking in the scenery with enhanced senses. (Detect Magic around the clearing).
** ** (52) Lellick peers down at Kha with a frown.
"..Dare I ask?" ** ** (62) Rin moves over to the ring of stones and
crouches to run a hand along the charred earth. ** ** (74) Agatha walks up to the well. "He
realizes he's swimming around in our drinking water, doesn't he?" ** (52) Lellick: "I'm not sure that I
would trust drinking from a well that's been next to a wizard's tower, but as
you say." ** (51) Kha pops back up "The door down there is locked. GIT can you unlock a
door while underwater?" ** (61) Git: :looks up from his scouring of the
rubble: "I.. suppose..." (61) Git: "What's a door doing
underwater though?" (62) Rin: "Probably being hidden." ** (74) Agatha throws Kha a dubious look. "And
how deep is it?" ** ** (62) Rin moves to join the others at the well,
peering idly down into the depths. ** (51) Kha: "Fifteen feet or so" ** (51) Kha climbs back out of the well ** ** (61) Git moves the well's edge, and circles round
until he can glance into the pool at the reflection of where the tower once
stood, out of curiousity. ** (62) Rin: "There's something magical
around that door." (62) Rin: "Some sort of.. field,
perhaps? It will likely need to be dealt with if you plan on opening it." (61) Git: :after satisfying his reflection
glancing needs, Git goes about searching the sides of the well for some devices
which may drain the water. (62) Rin: "It's possible the hatch is
what keeps the water in." (61) Git: (connection check) (51) Kha: (( still here )) (56) J'hzuu: ((Connected)) ** (51) Kha strips out of his wet clothing and puts
on his snake skin outfit ** (52) Lellick: (here) ** (62) Rin puts a hand over his eyes. ** (62) Rin: "If you're going to change,
do it behind a bush." ** (74) Agatha turns around and focuses on the rest
of the clearing. ** ** (51) Kha looks around the clearing after changing "Bushes are too far away" ** (74) Agatha: "Y'know if was just a hatch
for draining or adding water, why magick it up?" (62) Rin: "Prevent the water from
leaking through? Or the hatch from being opened except by the owner. You
wouldn't want someone swimming down and draining out your water, would you?" (62) Rin: "There are two possibilities:
there's a water-filled space down there, or there's an air-filled space down
there. If it was the latter, then the hatch would be keeping the water in the
well." ** (52) Lellick shrugs. "It's possible that
whatever magician lived here used his magic to remove the water when he had to
enter the door..." ** ** (61) Git groans a he dips a hand into the
presumabl freezing cold water. "Is it really necessary to open a well
hatch?" ** ** (62) Rin points at Kha. "Not unless you're
him." ** (61) Git: :nods in agreement to Rin.: (62) Rin: "We probably can't get it
open, in any case, unless the magical field can be dispelled." (62) Rin: (afk a few) (61) Git: "Good. Then I'm going to
rest." ** (61) Git strolls away from the well. ** (51) Kha: "Guess I can try to unlock
it" ** walks over to the well and takes
out one of his spears and points it down into the well as the tip starts to
crackle with energy ** "J`hzuu can you
make the magic barrier go away?" (74) Agatha: "Is that really all that
wise? All this stray magick and all? We could wake up as newts or
something." ** (52) Lellick takes care to step far back from the
well. ** ** (56) J'hzuu frowns and shrugs. "He can
try." ** ** (51) Kha nods "Please
do" ** (61) Git: :eye twitches at Kha's
"idea": "Umm... ." ** (56) J'hzuu approaches the well and begins
muttering and gesturing down it. ((Supress Magic)) ** ** (51) Kha steps back to give J`hzzu more room, his
spear still crackaling with energy ** (61) Git: (brb) (52) Lellick: "...I highly suggest that
if you're going to do that,that everyone stays far, far back from the
well..." (56) J'hzuu: Wispy tendrils float from J'hzuu's
hand to the hatch, but fade away harmlessly. The khajiit frowns.
"Again?" ** (61) Git moves back toward the rubble to continue
his earlier search... and take cover ** ** (56) J'hzuu shrugs and repeats the spell.
(([1d20+9] -> [10,9] = (19))) ** (56) J'hzuu: ... and watches the vapour repeat
itself. "Once more, then all will need to think of another option."
(([1d20+9] -> [20,9] = (29))) ** (74) Agatha slowly backs away, keeping the magic
words that activate her armor on the tip of her tongue. ** ** (51) Kha watches J`hzuu ** (52) Lellick: "Would another spell
work? If I had time to pray, I could gain one that might get rid of the
magics." (56) J'hzuu: The mist seeps down the well
again, and... ** (62) Rin takes a few large steps backwards. ** (56) J'hzuu: Seems to dissolve the barrier, the
latter fading from existence. (51) Kha: "Is it gone?" (56) J'hzuu: "Yes, but this will not last
long. If all are going down, all must go now." ** (51) Kha goes over to the well and points his
spear down, "You may want to step back,
not sure how lightning plays with water but we are going to see if it opens
doors" ** ** (56) J'hzuu blinks and hurriesw away. ** ** (52) Lellick is still standing back, looking
worried. ** ** (62) Rin goes over to stand by Lellick, drawing
his shield off his back since it might be useful for blocking debris. ** ** (51) Kha makes sure everyone is away the releases
the energy he was storing in his spear tip as a large bolt of lightning leeps
off the spear tip into the well ** whispering to ticattack, send it to me again, I
accidentally closed the whisper (42) DM: There is a tremendous explosion and
several things occur at once... (42) DM: Within the well, the hatch opens,
causing the water within to drain rapidly... ** (62) Rin ducks down, shielding the halfling, just
in case. ** (42) DM: It becomes unbearably bright within
the clearing as if it were daylight. In fact, the glow can be seen for miles
from all appearances. (61) Git: :while ducking behind debri:
"WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO NOW?! (42) DM: The temperature immediately becomes
hot and dry...as if you were in Zayal. Ajaiyah's mouth drops open, saying,
"What did you do?" ** (56) J'hzuu squints his eyes against the light,
trying to keep some amount of vision. ** (42) DM: A swarm of horseflies emerges from the
well and escapes into the air.... ** (51) Kha drops his spear and tries to cover his
eyes at the bright light ** ** (52) Lellick begins muttering quick prayers under
his breath, "Merciful Tevesh, should we, your mortal followers perish,
shelter us in your hands as you guide us to our eternity beyond this
world..." ** (42) DM: ...and a tremendous cacophany emerges
from within the well. Shouts, cries and keening...a babble of voices. ** (56) J'hzuu begins chanting as well, and hastily
running a feather across his body. (Fly) ** (74) Agatha: "Damn it all. This is why
ya don't play with magicks!" (62) Rin: "This wasn't a good idea at
all." (56) J'hzuu: ((Just tell me when one round's
gone by so I can act again.)) (42) DM: You can barely hear each other over
the din. (51) Kha: (( that all the things that happen
at once so we can act again? )) (42) DM: ((yup)) ** (51) Kha shouts, "That
was amazing, did you know Lightning would do that when blasted into a
well?!" as he is hoping over the edge of
the well and climbing down the ladder after the spear he droped ** (42) DM: ((after 1 round, the horseflies have
flown away, but everything else remains)) (42) DM: ((getting food, brb)) (74) Agatha: Agatha's ears are still ringing. ** (62) Rin slowly stands, squinting at the well. He
slowly strides over, peering down after Kha. He can at least watch the man die
horribly. ** (51) Kha: (( AFK for a smoke )) (74) Agatha: "You're mad, you know that?
Alchemy-spewing, stark raving mad!" ** (52) Lellick steps out from behind Rin's shield
once it seems that nothing else is immediately spewing out of the ground,
cautiously. ** (56) J'hzuu: ((How bright is the light?
Daylight or blinding-level?))s (42) DM: ((nova bright)) ** (61) Git climbs out from the rubble, shielding his
eyes as he approaches the others, "Now what in Andurin have you
unleashed?" ** ** (62) Rin uses his shield to try and keep the light
out of his face. ** ** (56) J'hzuu has his robes over his eyes, and is
hovering a foot from the ground. "J'hzuu does not know!" ** (51) Kha: "There are smelly plants down
here" ** calls out from the bottom of the
well ** ** (62) Rin squints into the well. "Smell
plants? What do they look like?" ** (52) Lellick: "Are you saying you've
just released this hellish atmosphere for a bunch of plants?!" (51) Kha: "Some type of bean plant that
is growing very very fast" (62) Rin: "...magic beans?" (74) Agatha: "Bean plants?!" (62) Rin: "Maybe you should.. I don't
know.. get out of there, then?" (51) Kha: "They seem to have stoped
growing, does anyone have a rope? It's thirty fet to the bottom and I dont want
to drop that far" ** (62) Rin sighs quietly, then straps his shield to
his back again, before climbing over the lip of the well and down the ladder. ** ** (56) J'hzuu walks over to the well and leaps down
the shaft. "If not, J'hzuu can give flight." ** ** (51) Kha looks up "Flight
may not last long enough, a rope would be best so I can climb back out
later" ** ** (52) Lellick blinks, then slowly walks towards the
well. "Come back up immediately if there's anything dangerous." ** ** (61) Git grumbles a few choice swears in several
languages before following Rin down the ladder ** (56) J'hzuu: ((afk a few)) ** (62) Rin stops at the bottom of the ladder, dragging
his pack around where he can get to it. He pulls a long coil of rope from
inside, and begins to tie it to the ladder, leaving most of it coiled. When
it's secure, he grabs the rope and lowers himself into the hole. (Climb check:
[1d20+10] -> [19,10] = (29)) ** ** (51) Kha follows after Rin ** (51) Kha: Climb Skill Check: [1d20+5]
-> [9,5] = (14) ** (74) Agatha watches Rin climb down into the shaft.
** (74) Agatha: "This can't end
well.." ** (51) Kha looks around the room once he gets to the
bottom "Sorry, almost knocked you off
there Rin" ** (74) Agatha: "Then again, everyone
within two day's travel of here must've seen the blast, including our secret
host. Going underground may not be the worst idea." ** (62) Rin glances around. "It's okay, just be more
careful in the future." ** ** (52) Lellick winces and nods. "We can't leave
them down there if they're so intent on exploring, either." ** ** (61) Git follows down behind kha, worried he'll
set off more dangerous explosions if left unsupervised. ** ** (74) Agatha turns to Lellick. "We
can't?" ** ** (52) Lellick grins somewhat sheepishly. "I
suppose if we care about them getting hurt, we can't." ** (74) Agatha: "Hm. Given the recent
events, I can't say I fit into the first group. Still, I suppose I can't risk
Kha's ghost haunting me for the rest of my life, short as he might make
it." (74) Agatha: "Shall I go first or would
you have the honors?" (52) Lellick: "You'd better go first,
in case I slip." ** (74) Agatha begins to climb down. "Fair
enough." ** ** (52) Lellick will wait a short while before
climbing down after her. ** (56) J'hzuu: ((Sorry folks, I'm out of it.
Zombified. I'm going to have to leave early and go lay down. At 3:30 pm...)) (51) Kha: (( rest well )) (56) J'hzuu: ((Cheers. Seeya later)) (56) J'hzuu:
Disconnecting from server... (56) J'hzuu (exit): 01:39 (51) Kha: (( **pokes the DM to see if he is
still alive** )) ** (74) Agatha slips on the slick wet rungs of the
ladder and falls. ** (74) Agatha: "WaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhOOF!!" ** (52) Lellick pauses for a moment, clinging as he
looks down into the gloom. "Agatha?!" ** ** (62) Rin tries to break Agatha's fall by catching
her. Or at least let her land on his soft and squishy body. ** ** (51) Kha rushes over to Agatha "Are you ok?"
** ** (74) Agatha groans as she lays on the floor of the
well. ** (74) Agatha: "Oww..." ** (52) Lellick continues to climb down, carefully,
if with more purpose. ** ** (74) Agatha groans as she slowly gets up.
"Watch out for that last step..." ** (74) Agatha: " 's a killer." (51) Kha: "Thats what the rope was
for." (42) DM: ((just seeing you interact)) ** (62) Rin breaks out his everburning torch. ** ** (51) Kha walks around and looks at the plants for
a momnt seeing if there are any beans on them yet ** (74) Agatha: "Ah, I must've missed that
as I plumeting off the slick near-frozen bloody ladder!" (42) DM: The chamber is roughly 30', perhaps
35' square and is hexagonal in construction. Ceiling is 30' above and you can
see the cauldron suspended from the ceiling via iron chains. Holes have been
cut into the bottom of the cauldron so when the hatch opened, the water drained
into the room below; the cauldron acted as a giant watering can. A passage
leads out of the room to a stone door. Holes cut into the floor of the
hexagonal room slowly drain the water into the earth. ** (74) Agatha growls as she cricks her back. ** (42) DM: There is a strong odor of rancid
spoiled bacon here. (42) DM: Bean plants grow from a patch of dirt
directly underneath the cauldron. ** (52) Lellick makes it to the bottom after a few
near-slips, hurrying over to Agatha once he gets there. ** (62) Rin: "Well this is a little
odd." ** (62) Rin moves over to examine the door. ** (61) Git: "Fascinating
horticulture." :idly comments as he looks about for the light source for
this subterran garden. (52) Lellick: "Just hold still..." (74) Agatha: "Don't worry about it lad.
I've suffered worse." (74) Agatha: "Nothing some bed rest
won't cure." (62) Rin: "There's a door here." (52) Lellick: "I'd much rather have you
in prime fighting condition. I would be very surprised if we don't run into
something down here." ** (52) Lellick graps his holy symbol, reaching up to
touch Agatha's arm and he intones, "May Tevesh ease this woman's pain and
make her whole again." As the spell is cast, his hands glow with a faint
white light, as well as her bruises. ** ** (62) Rin closes his eyes, briefly, then peers
about the room. He squints, then rubs at his forehead. A lot of magick. ** (52) Lellick: (Cure Light Wounds on Aggy,
rolling for HP gain now) (52) Lellick: [1d8+5]
-> [1,5] = (6) (52) Lellick: (..oh well XD;; ) (74) Agatha: ((good enough)) ** (74) Agatha follows Lellick through the doorway
into the main chamber. ** (61) Git: "No shite." :dryly
replies as he moves to the door, giving it a thorough going over for traps and
lock. ** (62) Rin stands back to give Git some room to
work, while holding the torch up to give him some light. ** (61) Git: "Well.. the door isn't
locked, but..." :yanks hard on the knob: "It's damn stuck. You guys
wanna give it some muscle?" (74) Agatha: "If you can tell me it's
not going to explode, I'll give her a try." (62) Rin: "I'm.. reasonably certain it
won't explode." ** (51) Kha goes to help open the door ** (51) Kha: Str check: [1d20+4]
-> [11,4] = (15) (74) Agatha: "Oh, well that fills me
past the brim with confidence it does. ** (51) Kha steps back "I could open it like I opened the hatch to get down here" ** ** (74) Agatha sighs and lends her efforts to open
the door. ** (61) Git: :turns quicky to Kha:
"NO!" ** (51) Kha shrugs ** (74) Agatha: Str check: [1d20+4]
-> [1,4] = (5) (51) Kha: (to Agatha) "Lets try
together" ** (61) Git moves away while the others try to pry
the door open. He begins searching along the walls for a switch or valve or
some such, which will perhaps release air into the next chamber and release the
seal. ** ** (74) Agatha nearly trips on a bean vine.
"Ack! Damn plants." ** ** (74) Agatha turns to Kha. "Hmph. So be it. On
three?" ** ** (51) Kha moves next to Agatha and grips the Door
handle "Ok" ** (42) DM: ((seems like a good place to stop
because I'm fading)) (51) Kha: (( Ok )) (74) Agatha: ((Yeah, I kinda sensed that.)) (61) Git: (understood) (42) DM: ((fyi, I'm cancelling Saturday's
session)) (74) Agatha: ((decent session though)) (42) DM: ((ps, Git and DJ have already gone
through part of this module in the Sat game, so no blabbing)) (42) DM: ((I ran it accidentally and then
changed my mind)) (42) DM: ok, see you guys next time
