“If there are no ill effects I would tie it out of the way, Feldard. Its pointless to wantonly destroy something. I can’t say what ward spells protect the fabric so tieing may circumvent disaster.” replied the mage.
The cleric stepped in, “Here, if you roush the fabric like this,” he said wrapping the material around itself, “Then it will hold back by itself. See?”
But, they couldn’t see for the red light was too intense. Still, they did their best to try to pull the material out of the way to see what lay beyond.
“We’re gonna be at this all day,” grumbled the dwarf.
They had to work with eyes closed in order to preserve their site. The others had a hard time making out the shapes of their two friends as the light from the many layers of curtains reflected off their armor and the walls of the hall.
“If this doesn’t work, just burn it,” suggested Hasan. “It’s just like underbrush in the forest, fire will clear it faster than…”
Suddenly pain shot into the dwarf. Something had bitten him! They weren’t alone amidst the curtains. Claws raked against Feldard’s body, but this time his armor protected.
In the midst of the light source, neither Maruc nor Feldard could see the attacker, but the others, who stood further away, could make out some sort of winged humanoid creature moving in the curtains.
