Has Anybody Looked In Here?

Maruc, clasping his holy symbol whispered rites over the fevered dwarf as he continued the healing process. During the priest’s lengthy prayers, more than once the dwarf fought to return to consciousness. Feldard would struggle to open a heavy eyelid to view the chanting priest. All that would was seen was a shadow of a holy symbol. Feldard no longer really felt his wounds.. just an unending chill…

Saeth paced irritatedly, knowing that beyond the chamber, their enemies regrouped. “Do hurry, Miklos. Certainly he knows something, but best to keep moving before the time passes us by.” She moved to the doorway, peeking through, then settled in to keep watch while the young mage worked his talents.

Miklos briefly glanced up for his studies to the elf maid he to keep the annoyance out of his voice, “Mistress Saeth, I’m sure I have mentioned this before, but for an entity that is practically immortal you have very little patience. I’m also sure that you would look before you jump. This is what I am doing, release the Rahib’s prisoners if you must it might entertain you for a while.” He returned his attention to his spell book.

“It is not a matter of patience, wizard, but expediency,” replied Saeth. “The time to act is when one is the hunter, not once one has become the prey.” The fact that it was a certain impatience, or perhaps fear, Saeth did not permit to show. “One is not ‘practically immortal’ for long if he waits while traps and ambushes are prepared for him.”

 

Miklos smiled, “True, but we are the invaders here, the traps have already been laid. They may be devising further traps, but I would be quite confident that few would get passed the Guardian and the Rahib. Unless we are dealing with foes who can see through walls or speak with the dead we have time. I do not wish us to suffer necessarily, or avoidably.” Miklos again returned to his studies.

Hasan joined Saeth in fretting about lost time, saying, “I agree with you, Saeth. While Feldard must be healed before we venture far from her, I do wonder if you and I should begin the investigations of the bloody room to the west.” He then approached the double doors to the east and asked, “has anybody looked in here?” and immediately opened them.

Behind the entrance was a short hallway. Double doors stood at the far end. There were single doors at the east ends of the north and south walls.

  1. Hasan

    “hmm… more here than I would have thought,” said Hasan, who walked forward and listened at each door.

  2. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Now the others had left them to it, it was almost peaceful. As he was scanning the now familiar texts in his well thumbed book of arcania he could understand the pressure to move on. Then again just a uneducated glance at the pale dwarf proved there was no swift exit from here. Indeed they were fortunate to suffer the ire of the guardian twice, and live. All they could rely on was the overconfidence of their enemy.

  3. Maruc (Clr 4)

    The priest continued his rites and prayers. This didn’t make him deaf though and he mused at Miklos’s words. Maruc was aware that indeed it was possible the commune with souls of long dead people and the sect that he and his friends had embroiled themselves with seemed well versed in the necromantic tradition. The chances were that the elves were right and that their time was short. Especially as the Siswa have not been released from their charm and it seemed that twisted members of their own cult had subverted them somehow. Perhaps even with the power of the Black Opal Eye? But that beggared the question why stay here?

    In a fortress teaming with slave-guards and protected by the guardian…

    ‘Oh Halav’, he prayed, ‘bless us with arrogant foes that they may be too self obsessed to see their weaknesses.’

    Colour began to return to the dwarf. “Blessed be the healing Hand of Halav Incarnate.” he entoned and continued his ministrations.

  4. Feldard (Dwf lvl 3)

    Feldard could feel warmth returning to his limbs and felt the cold chill of death retreat. Yes.. blessed indeed was healing Hand of Halav. Maruc certainly was most devote. He almost had the dwarf a convert.. almost.

  5. Saeth Tegau

    “You hear anything, Hasan?” Saeth asked. Addressing the Elf by name came much quicker to her than it had for the other companions. Waiting for a response, she drew a dagger, ready to throw it at anything that came through the doors.
