Hefting the globe Maruc placed it gently on the floor just out side of the darkness field. “Ok, lets see if we can shed some light in there. Could I borrow your staff Miklos?”
“Here.” Miklos passed his staff over to the priest.
“Thanks.” Using the staff he rolled the globe into the field of darkness and peered into the gloom, hoping to see what it revealed. Unfortunately, like everything else they put into the dark void, it was enveloped by blackness.
While Miklos and Maruc had been working with the glowglobe, Nicolai gathered the others to try their rope trick. “Feldard, first I would suggest that we go either side until we reach the blockage, and then go over and down behind the otherside.” Feldard nodded impatiently towards Nicolai. “Fine lets just get on with it!” He grabbed up his end of the rope and began the task, walking along the other side once more until the rope came up to the obstacle.
As Feldard got one end of the rope, Nicolai gripped the other, and said, “Saeth, will you help me on this end?”
The three tried flipping the rope up and over the obstacle. On the third try, they seemed to have succeeded. They pulled as hard as they could, but whatever was in the middle of the curtained area was solidly anchored and would not budge.
