Two On The Floor

A stream of inventive cuss words issued from the dwarf as he struggled to sit up to no avail.
Saeth’s eye opened wide, seeing the prone Dwarf. “Need a hand, or are you just napping there?” Shrugging off the daggers he glared at her, she climbed into the metalled corral, reaching out an arm to help him up–and was abruptly pulled down, the sword at her back fixed firmly to the ground.

“NO! Stay where you are Saeth,” the Dwarf tried to yell loudly, but it was difficult lying face down. Too late. The Elf and the Dwarf lay side-by-side, stuck to the metal surface of the roof.

Whilest the Mage scanned the book, Maruc resumed his search of the shelves, only to be interrupted again by the loud clank from above. He listened for a moment. “Feldard has discovered something not to his liking. Let us see what we can do to help him.”

Miklos sighed and snapped the book shut. He tucked it into his bag. Still no sign of Dentiata’s spellbook. Perhaps it was in the mysterious locked case. It was about the right size and weight.

As Maruc ascended the staircase, he heard another CLANK! He quickly took in the situation. Once he realised the demihumans weren’t in immediate danger, he stifled a laugh and said, “Have you identified the Magic Enchanment that has glued you to the rock?” Maruc did not approach. Miklos and Ashira followed behind.

“Everyone stay back if you carry anything with metal. It will be drawn to the floor here.” The dwarf grumbled sourly. He was stuck here right and good, unless he could perhaps somehow wriggle out of his chainmail while it was being drawn down.

“Is it possible to deactivate it?” Maruc asked, hoping someone else had greater knowledge in this matter.

  1. Saeth Tegau

    “What a clever way of resting we’ve discovered”, Saeth murmured. “How long before this wizardry consumes us both?” She tried to keep a touch of fear out of her voice, but this was really not how she wanted to die; on her back, immobile, and quite possibly of starvation.

  2. Saeth: 10xp +5xp +10xp
    Maruc: 10xp+10xp
    Miklos: 10xp
    Nicolai:
    Feldard: 10xp+10xp

    TOTAL:
    Saeth: 6175/8000
    Maruc: 6135/12000
    Miklos: 6130/10000
    Nicolai: 5820/9600

    The priest turned around, “Miklos what do you think?”

  4. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Miklos stepped in next to Maruc. Feldard, quite possibly the stronger of the two, had limited movement. Saeth he could see had a good degree more she only seemed pinned by her sword. What was strange was the way Feldards chainmail seemed to be being sucked onto the surface it a bizarre gravity-defying way and the flat of his axe blade firmly affixed to the object his iron helmet making a valiant attempt to pull his head off by the chinstrap. Possibly this was some sort of giant lodestone?

    “Maruc, you were wise not to enter the room. See how the stone seems to suck at the all the metal yet not at Mistress Saeths leather armour?” He paused, “I will need your help. Remove any metalic items you have and place them safely away from this area.” Miklos, not taking any chances, removed his silver daggers. He tied a rope around his waist and looped it around the railing and gave the other end to Maruc. Leaning his staff against the railing within ease reach he gingerly stepped forward to untie Seaths scabbard.

  5. Maruc (Clr 3)

    Maruc shed his backpack, splintmail and belt, flail and even his holy symbol. Clad only in his under tunic, cot and troos he looped the rope around his own waist and braced himself against the railing.

    “Ready Miklos.” He paid out the rope slowly keeping a little tension so if Miklos fell he could lock the rope swiftly.

  6. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    “This is no wizardry. This is a giant lodestone as our mage suggests. I should have recognized it before but for the size of it” The dwarf mumbled grumpily as his attempts at wriggling were getting him nowhere… if anything they were worsening his situation by grounding him in an even more uncomfortable position.
