Up The Tower


Feldard had just grumbled as the priest wasted yet another prayer on healing him. That would just mean more meditation later, bah!

Nicolai took the lead next to the dwarf, keeping an eye out for traps. “Feldard, this place may have secrets beyond my eyes, can your dwarven eyes better see any secret doors around the place?”

The dwarf, once more hale and hearty took to the lead with Nicolai, his dwarven eye for construction lending aid in finding those spots that might conceal a secret trap or a hidden doorway.

Seeing the Nicolai and the Dwarf at the fore, Saeth settled into the rear again. It bothered her less this time—any real dangers were almost certainly past by now.

As the others set themselves into some kind of marching order Miklos, taking his place behind Maruc, said, “Could I request that we do not resort to fire? If there is an evidence to prove our actions to the lords of Specularum, it is likely to be written down.”

“Please focus your attention on things that may remind you of Sevastians trappings or the Sons of Night, these will be invaluable in any required explaination of our actions. Other things to be wary of are,” Miklos pulled a parchment out and read. “The Dread Night, Nithia, Nyx, Taymora, Black Opal Eye, Undeath and Sacrifice. Although Taymora is a place I think, as have mentioned before.” Putting the parchment back he was ready to follow the others further up the Tower.

The mage’s comment reminded Feldard of something.. what was it now.. “oh yeah, Dentiata before he died commented how he was preparing for .. now how did he put it?” The dwarf recalls back a moment.. “ah! ‘the day when our world will be consumed by the Dread Night’. An event.. Sadly he didn’t live much longer to expand on the concept of it. Hope that helps some.”

They made their way up the stairs, at ease with the knowledge that their principle foe lay dead. The door was open at the top of the stairs, and it lead into a hallway with various closed doors located throughout. Light was provided by glowglobes attached to the ceiling at both ends of the hallway. No sounds could be heard and the hallway was silent.

  1. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth, in the rear, leaned against the post of the staircase and sighed, waiting for the leaders to open a door. Or doors–with the wizard dead, she didn’t see much threat at all that his chambers might pose.

  2. Miklos (Mu 3)

    At the rear of the line Miklos could make out little of the passageway beyond. He stepped to one side as he entered to get a better look.

    “Well, this isn’t Planar Arcania. Let us introduce ourselves to the occupants of the first room. After you naturally.” he added with a hint of amusement.

  3. Maruc (Clr 3)

    Allowing the others better access to the door (and room to swing if necessary) Maruc moved futher into the corridor to the left.

    He thought back to his meditations whilst the others positioned themselves. The communing with ones God was an exhilarating experience. It was a dichotomy of being at immense peace yet filled with an urgent drive of purpose. After each event he felt strangely exhausted yet rested and relaxed. It wasn’t sleep mores the pity, he was still unused to the travelling and he felt run down overall.

    There wasn’t much running about in the cloister. Ahh but what would the Abbot say about him now? May be one day he would find out. But moreover he would find out who burned the cloister down and why. Still on job at a time Maruc. The Sons of Night are your first priority. Revenge is for later. No, not revenge, Closure.

    He was finding it easier to handle, summoning the magic. He began to understand the nature of the casting and his latest channelings felt more natural. It was challenging not to be drawn into self gratification and pride, but that was what it was all about. The prayers and the books and the cycle of monastic life. It was all there to keep your feet on the ground if you became worthy and were chosen.

    Maruc was chosen and he would prove himself worthy. He shook out his chain flail waited for the first door to be opened.

  4. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard moved to the first door at the top of the steps and took hold of the handle testing to see if it were locked.
    (if it were locked).. He motioned Nicolai to it “See if you can unlock this, I’ll continue on” and set off to check the next door along the hall.

    (if it were not locked) He opened the door, not really expecting anything to jump out after well over 6 hours of waiting. He glanced over the rooms interior briefly for any apparent threat.

  5. Nicolai (T3)

    “One door at a time, if this one was researching the same dark magics as Sevastian, then there may well be undead lurking around the place here as well. I doubt those Orcs and undead would have mixed well, and unlikely that Orcs would be allowed near his researches. They didn’t exactly appear to be the brightest gems in the dragon’s horde, did they?”
