At the Junction

After a quick glance round the corner the mage pulled his head back.

“They don’t seem to have been attracted by the fight. Very odd.” Miklos had an idea, “Feldard your crossbow may prove useful. Firstly kindly fire a bolt down the passageway the Siswa vanished into I’d like to see if it too vanishes. Secondly, and this is open to debate, we might be able to draw those fellows down here into our own ambush as they seem to have ignored us so far. Master Feldard could stand openly in the corridor shooting at them until they decide to attack him then we all attack when they get here. Or we could just leave them to it and we head back to the last juction and head left. What do you say?”

“Well I am not here to slaughter folk.” the priest said, “They are not causing us grief, yet. In addition they do not seem to be aware of us or if they are, they are not interested in us. My vote says we head back to the last junction. We can easily double back to check we are not being followed.”

The dwarf thought over the options “While, I second the priests words in that we are not here to slaughter innocents. They may very well be able to lead us to the Rahib. I think at the very least we should check it out. We are here now doubling back seems like a waste of time. Saeth it seems yours is the tie breaker. What shall it be?”

While the elf thought over her reply, the dwarf met the mages first suggestion halfway. Firing off a bolt down the hall the Siswa disappeared would likely waste one of his limited supply of bolts but he did wing down the hall a coin. Just as the elves before it, the coin vanished into thin air.

Saeth watched the coin fade, pondering. “You say these new elves just disappeared, as the coin did?” She stood quietly for a second, trying to find a way to avoid agreeing with the Dwarf. Finally, giving up, she pronounced, “If they can hide on the other side of a magic curtain, it would seem that the Rahib would hide there as well. We should see what can be found with the guidance of these Elves.” She looked at Feldard, silently questioning if he would lead his plan’s realization.

  1. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    The dwarf grumbled at the idea of crossing a curtain of magic but he had left it up to the elf and she did have a point. “Mage, mark our path along the wall so that if Nicolai or we ourselves cross this way we know which path was taken. Number the mark as well and note it on your scrap of paper”
    Feldard readied his axe, in the chance that the Siswa were waiting on the otherside and made his way along the hall passing into the magicked area wondering where this route will take him.

  2. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth, her blade at the ready, strode slowly behind him, not as nervous about the magic itself, but about what lurked beyond…

  3. Miklos (Mu 3)

    “Interesting. One moment.” he gestured the dwarf to one side. “I will try one more thing before we traverse the magic field. You might wish to return?” the mage advanced on the field with his staff held before him like a fishing rod. when the end pierced the field he tried to draw it back to see if it was one-way.

    either way on he result he will continue-

    Miklos turned to Feldard, “Well there’s your answer as to the safety of the way on. Going this way we will no longer be following the left hand wall and the potential to be lost will be greatly increased. But you are more level headed within tunnels so your intuition may save us valuable time.” Not wishing to gainsay the dwarf his personal feeling were toward the more logical, if not longer, approach. But maybe the dwarf was right, he just didn’t like it. “The whole choicew depends on if we are in a hurry or not.”

  4. Maruc (Clr 4)

    “We are in a hurry. Those Siswa are on their way to draw reinforcements to us.” Maruc pressed. “My vote is we try to catch them, but they have have a superior knowledge of the tunnels so may lead us astray.” Maruc checks the floor for tracks. “If thay have left sign of their travel we should follow them. If they have not we should double back and follow the left hand wall.”
