The Healing Hand of Halav

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

Now that 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.

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.

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

“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.

Neither of the elves’ keen senses detected anything beyond the doors.

  1. Feldard gains 6 hp, and is now at 7/17

  2. Hasan

    “I hear nothing,” said Hasan, peering speculatively at the northern door. “While I would hate to endanger our companions’ meditations, I’d rather find something than have it find us. What do you say? Shall I open it?”

  3. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Maruc will continue with his plan to pray and heal until he has cast a further heal upon Feldard and one upon himself and one he will keep in reserve (this is 2 hours game time – 1/2 hour for each spell= 2 for Feldard, 1 for himself and 1 in reserve.)

  4. Miklos (Mu 3)

    His studies now complete Miklos turned to the bound elf and cast his own Charm Person on him. He then released the captives gag and asked. “Well my friend, how are you feeling? I was wondering if you could tell me all you can remember about the Sisters Three? You can trust me my friend I shall only seek to benefit us all and further our aims.”

    “Do the Sisters Three have any further protection other than the stalwart services of the mighty Siswa?” he enquired.

    “What enemies of the Sisters Three are held in the dungeons of the Rahib?”

    “Do the Sisters Three have any other allies that you have seen?”

  5. Miklos (Mu 3)

    “One other thing, could you draw me a map of what you know of the temple? That would be most useful!” Miklos said then turned to see if anyone else had any questions.

  6. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    (sorry to mess with Maruc’s plans but Feldard if he’s able to move somewhat.. would not be sitting about waiting while the priest prays another hour and a half).

    There was still pain, quite a bit of it actually and several of the dwarfs wounds still required their bandages, but following the priests prayer, Feldard sat up. He noted the priest had gone back to prayer and tried not to be surly and instead took his axe in hand and rose. Feldard wouldn’t leave Maruc undefended but while the priest prayed he could at least sharpen his axe and keep watch.

  7. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Feldard – no worries Maruc doesn’t actually need his patient to pray 🙂

  8. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth nodded at Hasan. “There’s nobody there. And if there is, we’re ready for him.” She smiled, then glanced back at the awakening Dwarf. “And if we don’t, he should. This is his element, after all.” She remained tense as she looked back at the door in anticipation.

  9. Hasan

    “Right,” said Hasan. “Let’s see what’s here.” He opened the door.

  10. Nicolai (T4)

    Nicolai draws his sword in anticipation.

  11. Saeth: 10xp
    Maruc: 10xp
    Miklos: 10xp+10xp
    Nicolai: 10xp
    Feldard: 10xp
    Hasan: 10xp

    TOTAL:
    Saeth: 8195/16000
    Maruc: 8465/12000
    Miklos: 8445/10000
    Nicolai: 7780/9600
    Feldard: 8380/8800
    Hasan: 7790/8000
