Another Tunnel to the Tower

Hasan looked back at the party, ready to open the door. “No,” he hissed. “Not yet.”

Gesturing at the wall, he said, “There are tracks here that lead into the wall. This must be some kind of secret passage. Who can know where it leads, but shouldn’t we start out here? Whether the tower was Elyan’s or some necromancer’s, it is a dark, dark place today. I’d rather not charge through the front door.”

The dwarf seeing Hasan at the wall and then catching his whispered words, waved back the others from the door and went to investigate the wall. “This may just be the way that the Rahib entered. But you are right in that it needs to be checked out.”

Miklos spend the next few moments trying in vain to decypher the carvings of the door whilest the others examined the mystery of the disappearing tracks.

The priest followed the dwarf over to the rock wall. “Perhaps he climbed?” Maruc gazed up the wall to see if there was some obvious cleft that might be an exit.

The two resident experts, Feldard and Nicolai, then began a detailed investigation of the wall. After a few minutes, they discovered a hidden mechanism disguised as a rock that opened a hidden door. The door cracked open, revealing a second tunnel leading away from the entrance to the ruins.

    “Hmm…herez’s a twist. Should we go in the front door, or go through the secret door, that may or may not take us where we want to go. In this case, I’d say stealth is worth more than speed, so I would willingly take this way, indirect though it may be. But I do not feel strongly, and will follow the will of the group.”

  2. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    “Answer me this, Hasan. In which direction were the tracks going? To or from the ruins? … As I said this is likely the way that the Rahib made it past the Guardian. What we seek, is likely still within the ruins along with the Sisters and whatever evil they’ve conjured up.”

  3. Miklos (Mu 3)

    “We do not know who made the tracks and what purpose drove them, but one does not go through the pains of concealing a door for no reason. Consider that whoever dwells beyond these doors wishes to be left alone. These giant doors are obvious.” said Miklos indicating the entrance. “Therefore it is reasonable to conclude that the tunnel should be investigated first. If only to ensure no enemies get behind us.”

  4. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Maruc flashed the lantern down the tunnel. “This tunnel appears to lead away from the tower. But I agree with Miklos, unless there is some way of locking this door and proofing it against undead that can pass through rock we must take a look. We cannot allow ourselves to be trapped.”

    If the party is in agreement Maruc will follow Feldard down the tunnel.

    The grumbles under his breath as again the party would rather traipsy around rather than meet the enemy head on. “Fine, then lets get on with this, before you humans begin to keel over due to old age!” The dwarf once more takes the lead, moving down the tunnel a little less cautiously than he likely should.. but he’s in a sour mood with all the waiting and the meandering route to their foe, and his impatience shows.

  6. Miklos (Mu 3)

    “I’d rather have the pleasure of getting to old age.” mumbled Miklos under his breath.
