Down The Hatch

Miklos winced as the Elf kicked the door in. “Easy girl! Blimey, we don’t want to wake the whole place up unless its necessary. We do have our highly skilled Nicolai here for this sort of thing you know.” He glanced passed her into the room beyond. “Still it seems there’s no harm done.” Miklos allowed to others to pass through before entering the room himself.

“Miklos, don’t be so quick to judge. Saeth listened at the door first you know. She knows whats she’s doing and you have to admit anyone in there would have been surprised!” Maruc grinned.

Saeth jumped slightly as Nicolai moved past her to listen at the far door. The elf calmed herself down and turned back towards the Dwarf. “You suppose we’re under the tower proper by now?”

Feldard pondered a moment at the Elf’s question, judging distance and direction. He nodded. “We should be at the outer edge of the Tower now. I would suspect beyond this door perhaps one more room, at most, then our exit.” Feldard moved ahead to back Nicolai at the door.

Maruc picked his way through the mess after the Elf. “What do you think? Is this wine vintage?”

Saeth sniffed the proferred bottle. “Perhaps too vintage. I’d let the Dwarf drink it, myself.” She glanced up the tunnel, where Feldard was preparing to open the next door with Nicolai.

Feldard glanced back at the Elf’s comment. “Too potent for you, eh long ears? That’s okay, I’m sure we’ll come across someone who has some goat’s milk to appeal to your infant-like tastes.”

“Sshh! How am I supposed to hear anything with you bickering like old women?!” scolded Nicolai.

“Too potent?” The volume of her voice, though not its intensity, dropped in response to Nicolai’s comment. Grabbing the bottle back from Maruc, she upended it, chugging half the contents before coming up for air. She glared with her good eye, silently demanding Feldard take back his insult.

As the others carried on, Nicolai struggled to listen at the door. While the elf stared down the dwarf, the young rogue heard the distinct sound of a door being opened.

  2. Maruc (Clr3)

    Maruc noted the look of consternation on the rogue’s face and waved the others into silence. Keeping his voice low Maruc edged toward Nicolai. “What can you hear?”

  3. Miklos (Mu2)

    Miklos sighed at the bickering of the Dwarf & Elf. He was about to add something to their argument when he saw Marucs frantic waving. He gave him a quizzical look but said nothing. Miklos couldn’t reallt make out what was happening up front, but he prepared himself for the worst. Perhaps breaking the door down had summoned some unwanted attention after all. Miklos swore to himself and brought his staff up defensively in front of him.

  4. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    The dwarf had enjoyed that! And easily withstood Saeth’s one-eyed glare. If it had not been for the rogues look of concentration and the Clerics frown he would have laughed aloud at the Elf’s attempt to prove him wrong. As it was, Feldard merely grinned back at Saeth before turning his attention once more to the door ahead.

  5. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth set the bottle down on the nearest shelf, and pronounced her verdict to Maruc. “Perhaps not potent enough for a Dwarf, but certainly foul enough. What’ve they found up there?”

  6. Nicolai (T3)

    “I hear a door opening,” hissed Nicolai. “That’s probably just coincidence, but please try and keep the noise down whilst we’re trying to sneak into the tower of an ‘evil wizard’. I’d rather take them by surprise than the other way round. Now, shall we get ready just in case they decide to open this door?”
