The Rahib’s Study

Finishing his search of the library, Hasan turned to the south door. Nicolai stood behind Hasan and waited with his bow drawn. “Let’s see what we have here,” said the elf as he opened the door.

The room beyond appeared to be a study. It was 20-foot-square with a 10-foot wide alcove at the south end of the east wall. A table in the center of the room was covered with papers.

As Maruc continued his praying, the mage scanned the map. “Who has permission to enter the forbidden area? And why is it forbidden, Lithrien?”

“Only the Rahib may consult with the Sisters.”

  1. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    (ah no need of an engineer or such – that explanation is enough.. I missed the part that the mountian collapsed overtop. Thank you : ) Muchly! )

    Feldard, listening in to the Mages’ conversation with the Siswa, paused sharpening his axe and scratched at his thick beard. The Tower was buried beneath the temple? So they’d need to delve deeper through these tunnels; that suited the dwarf just fine. Most likely they’d find a way down if they searched this “forbidden area”. Yeah, it seemed that the Mage was on the right path with his questioning. Feldard resumed his weapon care, do doubt it would find use soon enough.

    “So Elf, you say that none entered the area, before the arrival of the Rahib?” That seemed odd.

  2. Hasan

    Hasan will search the room for secret doors and the check out the documents on the table.

  3. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Maruc paused in his rites, “The Rahib was a dark priest. It is likely, from what I have heard and learnt that he used the powers of the dark gods to call forth and communicate with the Sisters. Although I would hazzard a guess that it would take him some time to subjugate all of the Siswa in the time he had swapping masters from Denetiata to the Sisters. Therefore I’d imagine the the Sisters were already at work when he arrived, else he would have been caught by the Siswa. I suspect that the Sisters were using the Rahib to futher their aims, it concerns me that Elfmaids are required in their rites, it conjures visions of ‘possession’ in my mind…”

  4. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Miklos nodded at the wise words of the priest. He passed the map to the Dwarf. “Dwarves are indeed cunning if in truth they created this labrynth, I am impressed. I’ll leave Lithrien in your capable hands, its not that I don’t trust our elvish friends but another pair of eyes might help.”

    With that the mage stood up and marched into the library and one of the saddest sights of his life. It was quite obvious that the Rahibs panthers were housed here, this might have been Elyas’s study filled will tombs of wonder. It was a travesty that the secrets held here were lost. He turned his back on the vision and animal stench and stiffly closed the door. “The Rahib had alot to answer for, the more I see the more I loath his works.”

    He stood outside the cramped study. He saw Hasan scanning some paper on the desk. “Anything useful Hasan?”

  5. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard gave a mild snort at the Mage’s passing off of the map and the watching of the Siswa captive. The dwarf with a grumble set aside his axe and re-checked the elves bindings then settled in to peruse the map from an engineers point of view.

    (Given what he’s seen and what he knows of the dwarven engineering … Is there any way to tell if the forbidden area is of dwarven construction or dug out afterwards? Would he be able to judge structurally where any further hidden rooms or escape routes might be best situated?)

  6. Nicolai (T4)

    Nicolai will check the alcove for secret doors and traps. He will then check the table for secret compartments.
