Rest and Recuperation

“Well It looks as if these people arn’t going to yield any information. Lets get some food and rest.”

Miklos made another note on his map detailing the rough proprtions and labelling it up. he then preformed a good investagion of the area noting floors and ceilings and evidence of attempts of escape by the inhabitants.

Maruc gratefully accepts the offer of food and rest. After a brief meal he laid his shield and pack to one side and wrapped himself in his cloak and was swiftly off to sleep.

Miklos went back to the lab. If there is a fireplace he will set a fire going and look what he fancies from him rations. “Hmm bread and cheese again then.” He sets to his meal with all the gusto of some who’s got cheese and bread to look forward to for the next week.

Saeth shut the door, and looked for a bar to put on it. The confines of the room left little space to fight, and it was altogether best to keep their foes out. That done, she leaned against it and slid to the floor, humming softly in Elven.

Nicolai took first watch as the others rested and recuperated. As he listened to the distant sound of dripping water, he knew this was going to be a long night.

“Wake me for second watch” that said the dwarf propped his pack against a wall and settled himself out on the floor with the pack as a pillow and let sleep claim him. Feldards’ sleep was dreamless and deep. All knew when he’d drifted off, for his resonating snores were hard to miss.

Maruc’s dreams were troubled he tossed and turned in his sleep as nightmare creatures prevaded his every dream. Death masked vultures grinned rictus smiles with hollow eyes glaring into his soul hungry for the life he had. Was the real? Nightmare visons of his compaions raised as the undead clawing at his clothing brought him awake with a jolt. He breathed, why had they choosen to sleep here? No amount of money was worth this. Cadwell could keep his castle this was a fools errand. No the soon they were out of here the better no matter what they missed on the way. Miklos would have to just live with the consequences of not searching out every inch of the place for Mage Knowledge. If this was typical of mage craft they could keep it.

The hours passed uneventfully. It was hard to tell the passage of time in the underground chamber. Eventually, everyone was able to get enough rest to continue on.

  2. Maruc (Clr 3)

    Maruc habitually rubbed his eyes with the palms of his calloused hands in an atempt to clear his head. He swallowed some water out of his canteen and yawned. He got shakerly to his feet and wandered over to the cooling fire and stoked it up a bit.

    The others were stiring whilst Maruc finished his morning rites.

    “Morning Feldard, thanks for looking out for us. Want some breafast?” Maruc started to prepare some food from his rations.

    He gathered his gear together and waited for the others to get ready to try the new portal.

    Maruc still has his 2 CLWs memorised.

  3. Miklos (Mu 2)

    Miklos wished he hadn’t awoken, no one else seemed to mind sleeping on the floor but his back hurt everywhere. He picked himself up and stretched then walked over to see what Maruc was cooking. He gratefully accepted the proffered food as anything was better than cheese and bread right now.

    He pulled on his cloak and fipped open his spellbook and memorised a new Magic Missile incantation before joining the other by the portal.

  4. Nicolai wakes and has a bite to eat, then gathers his kit and says “Right, off we go then, I don’t want to spend another night in here, one was quite enough for me”

  5. Feldard (Dwf 2)

    The dwarf readily accepted a meal cooked by someone else. Cooking was one skill he never had really been good at. So his rations when travelling tended to be naught but dried and salted meats. As he broke fast with the cleric, Feldard wondered whether his reluctant bride-to-be would know her way around a cooking hearth or whether he would be made to suffer meals that would make a troll cry. The thought was worrisome.
    When the others began to stir and prepare themselves, he gathered up his pack and axe, and then pulled out the door key ready to continue on. The thought of purposely going through another magical portal distrubed him but he’d seen no evidence of any other passage despite the good Mages ramblings on how it wasn’t good to be teleporting into solid rock. The fact was there seemed to be no other means out – so
    when everyone was assembled, he quickly inserted the key into the skull doors key hole and scowled at the magic that was to come.

  6. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth stretched, though she didn’t think she’d slept a wink. Why did everyone else seem so cheery, especially that thief who’d somehow joined their company? Neverless, work never ended for a mercenary. She got to her feet, checking her gear for defects or looming problems, then followed the dwarf out towards the magical gate.
