In the Hallway


Maruc turned to Miklos, “Interesting tactics. Shall we leave them to get out numbered or shall we follow them?”

“I don’t know Maruc they seem quite enthusiastic. It’d be a shame to miss their heroics.” Miklos replied.

“Oh, you think they’ll be returning any minute then?”

“I think so let me check.”

Miklos went to the doorway. He winced. Then turned back to Maruc. “It’s pretty messy out there. Oh look an ear.”

“Wow let me see. Eugh.”

“Nice Miklos, now will you come back here before you atract attention to yourself.”

“Hmm I think they’ll need some clerical help soon, maby a patch up job.” Miklos ducked back as a flying wrist arced over him .”Good shot Feldard!”

“Miklos look at the state of you, you’re covered in blood.”

“At least its theirs.”

“Actually, I think they do need your help Maruc.” Miklos wiped the gore from his face.

“Oh all right.” Maruc pulled his flail out and marched into the fray. “Havachyou you undead, err Halfling!” Maruc brought his Flail down on the unfortunate demihuman.

The last zombie ceased moving, and the fight was over. With the undead were dealt with, Feldard moved on down the hallway to ensure that the battle hadn’t attracted attention from others. Nicolai returned to where he left his bow, and then followed Feldard down the corridor to have a check for traps and secret doors.

The corridor turned sharply to the right, where it continued for around forty feet until it again turned to the right. Halfway down on the left wall there was a closed wooden door.

“I’ve a feeling we’re not going to get out of here before night fall.”

    Wow… moving quickly again!

    Saeth prowled slowly down the hallway, pausing to listen a moment at the door, then cleared the corner, scouting beyond.
    “Anyone hear something beyond that door?”

    That statement’s intentionally ambiguous, given that I don’t know if Saeth hears anything or not…

  3. Maruc (Clr 3)

    Maruc’s gaze swept over the door.

    “Not that the dead make much noise, but I guess it’s worth a listen. Seath? This is more your thing I think.”

  4. There are no noises to be heard from behind the door.

  5. Miklos (Mu 2)

    Miklos trailing the others gave the room they had arrived in a cursory search. He was particularly interested to see if there were any sigils for determining the arrival point of the teleportation device. Especially if there was a way back though here.

    He also picked over the bodies in case there was anything of interest. Miklos was not bashful about doing this as in his view they were animations. Macarbre animations true but things driven by magic none the less.

    Like Golems he decided.

    After he finished his search he caught up with the others while they investigated a wooden door.

    “Well I guess we try to open it?” After everyone was prepared, Miklos grabbed the handle he checked the hinges – would the door open inward or outward?

  6. “Miklos, as before, I would recommend that we group with Feldard and Maruc in front, and myself, you and Saeth behind with knives, or in my case bow, at the ready.”

  7. Feldard (Dwf 2)

    Feldard moved to the front and bodily interceded before the mage could open the door. “Mage, are you trying to get yourself killed? Get to the back and make yourself useful by keeping watch down the hallway.” Yes, perhaps the dwarf was being a little overly rude but that tended to happen when he found himself faced with battling the undead in a Necromancers secret haven with magic being all around him. His beard had stopped itching sometime ago and instead had developed a permanent twitch. (LOL)
    With everyone in their place, the dwarf would open the door.

  8. Miklos (Mu 2)

    “Not particularly Feldard,” Miklos said patiently, “its just that you made a keen observation before, namely that the person opening the door is doing just that. I am given to understand that the most effective combatants use both hands? I’d imaging its quite difficult to fire a bow with only one. Therefore would it be more appropriate of the one who is not immediately useful with offensive capability to open the door and allow others to be prepared to charge in?”

    “But if you, feel I have come to the wrong conclusion, be my guest. I am not a fool and I am not afraid, I am only trying to be useful.”

    “Although I might add that the door looks like it opens inward so, Its probably better if you just kick it in….” Miklos stepped out of the way.

  9. Maruc (Clr 3)

    “You would not be useful dead Miklos. Nicolai and Feldard where only concerned with your safely.” Maruc put in. “Please don’t be upset by their words. I serously doubt we have enough room here for us all to crowd around the doorway anyway. I suggest myself to the right, Seath to the left Nicolai behind Feldard with his bow, and our esteemed Master Dwarf on door duty.”

    “You Miklos can go and wash your hands.”

  10. Miklos (Mu 2)

    “You can talk, have you looked at yourself in a glass.?” Miklos said absently wiping his hands on his cloak.

  11. Maruc (Clr 3)

    “Priests don’t have such vanities.” Maruc cut the mage off, but couldn’t help himself glancing down at his gore spattered gear. “After you Feldard.” He gestured toward the door.
