Miklos studied the papers for a while …the Dread Night…consumed by darkness….Sons of Darkness…. This sounded more like the histerical ramblings of mad clerics rather than serious research. Sevastian was insane, pulling apart the building blocks of nature was dangerously close to crossing the Gods. Life and death were their domain.There was something else, yes on the sarcophogus, he opened his notes … “The Dread Night, Nithia, Nyx, Taymora, Black Opal Eye, Undeath, Sacrifice” ….Sacrifice…
There were quite alot of sacrifices that had been performed here. Perhaps the Dread Night was closer than they realised.
The other point that was worrying Miklos was that eveyone assumed that they were still in the Castle. They might have been transported to Taymora, Miklos shivered at the thought. Best not to worry the others with this unless something pointed toward a distant teleportation like differing humidity and air pressure and temperature.
“Shall we inspect the two doors before we continue?” He tried to keep the worry out of his voice. He pocketed the paper carefully and rose to join the others.
Maruc waited for the others to come over, “Shall we try the right door, I’ve listened at both but have heard nothing. Which doesn’t mean much down here.”
Maruc looked at the Mage, “Are you OK?”
“I’m fine, lets get on with this.” Miklos sounded more abrupt than he meant.
Maruc shook his head. There was something the mage had guessed at but wasn’t telling. “Anything interesting in the papers?”
“Just the ramblings of a madman.” Miklos waited for Feldard to open the door as the others positioned themselves arond it in their adopted manner.
“Lets get moving. I don’t want to be roaming these hallways and rooms forever.” The dwarf moved to one of the two doors, the one on the right, hand already on it’s handle and looked to the others. “Ready?” Bow drawn, Nicolai stood ready behind the Dwarf.
Feldard opened the door. The room appeared to be a store room. A disgusting yellow fungus coats much of the room. Crates and barrels that are piled high are covered with the moldy stuff.
