A Trap Triggered

“There’s a secret compartment on this alter” He didn’t try opening immediately, rather he waited for the rogue to check it out. Leaving the disabling of the trap and search of the compartment for the others, he passed off the guide rope to one of those remaining and then heads out of the darkness shaking his head.

Returning to the darkness, Nicolai warned the others to stand back, and started to attempt to remove the trap.

Feldard looked to the servant. “While my companions further check the alter, you’ll lead me down to the dungeons.”

“As you wish,” said Ashira. She was not comfortable in this room. Dentiata had forbade her to enter, and she was not especially anxious to find out why.

The Dwarf’s words, as he emerged from the darkness, spurred a reply from Saeth. “Going to the dungeons? Care for a good sword at your back?”

The Elf set herself up too nicely with that question. “Yes I am. And I sure would but you can come along instead.” He chuckled to himself, watching for her reaction.

Miklos stepped back at Nicolai’s warning. Fasinating, Miklos hoped that the compartment might reveal some of Dentiata secrets. Which up until now were well hidden. This finding would spur a closer check of all the rooms they had visited. Miklos stood aside and allowed Feldard to pass and waited to see what the rogue discovered.

Maruc turned to the emerging Dwarf. “Do you mind awaiting the results of Nicolai’s ministrations before setting off? Mainly because you may need my help and so might Nicolai any minute. Thank you.”

Then he looks to Maruc as the cleric bids him wait. He sighed but did indeed wait at the top of the stairs with Saeth, keeping his eye on Ashira.

Nicolai tried to deactivate the trigger. Click. Oops!

A cloud of gas immediately filled the room.

Standing next to the darkness aura Maruc didn’t see it coming. “Whats that funny smel….?” He, along with Miklos and Nicolai, slumped to the floor. Saeth and Ashira, who were standing at the top of the stairs were able to act quickly and avoid breathing in too much of the gas. Though they felt a bit woozy, they remained conscious.

    Ooops.

  2. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard didn’t dare speak and waste precious breath instead he motioned for Ashira and the Elf to descend the steps. The dwarf then made his way deeper into the gas-filled room and tried dragging the others over to the stairway without breathing in the noxious fumes. He grabbed the Cleric first and spent a moment at the stairs gaining back his breath before going back in for Miklos and lastly Nicolai. He didn’t know how long the fumes would last but the dwarf took no chance.

  5. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth held her breath, and scanned the room–were there any windows, to help vent this poison? With no time to open them, she descended the steps, then stood panting at the bottom as the indefatiguable Dwarf went back to drag the others out.
