“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.
