     Game Update #261 in sequence (file #453)
     Admin notes:  None
     [Recap]     - None
     [New Stuff  - Current Situation]

       From Unali: [Re: Actions]
         She will take the keys and unlock the females first, the male
         last. She will motion for them to come along and also say
         'Come along, lets get out of here' in Marentian first and
         Climan after that. Hopefully they understand enough of the
         language or the hand motion to follow her into the hallway.

         I expect she meets the others there and everyone can fill
         the others in on what happened. Unali will mention the two
         locked in guards and the fact that the remainder of the level
         is explored and safe. She will then ask the four prisoners
         who they are and why they are here, where the others are
         also present, as they may be better in languages. If Spaar
         and Qorz go down, probably those want to go along with them?
         She will also show the list with blotted out names to Aren
         and Qorz once she learns his name. Up to now she believes
         the male prisoner she just rescued is probably Qorz.

         Once on the next level she wants to move west first.
       GM: Ack. 

       From Chion: [Re: Actions]
         If Chion has the "preserve the dead" spell (balance I
         think?) then he will offer it for Fisherking. If it will
         work on birds is anyone's guess, but possibly because it
         is a Tonah it may be raised. He thinks he'll have to ask
         one of the wizards when he gets back home. In any event, he
         will also state to its master that "Although your ways are
         different from mine harmony can occur in nature also." -
         In his native tounge.
       GM: Valgor offered in last update to do the same.  We'll see
         once she gets out of her berserk mode.  


      Time: Estimated  6:17am-6:32am  - Morning Day 22

      time is up.  Party is too late.  Suddenly a earthquake rocks
      and the complex collapses.  Everyone is killed but those
      in the sae cave.  Sorry!

      oh ok..april's fools!...drat its april 2...oh well...

      ----------- Outside near Large door/stairs ----------------

      [As the party groups outside the door and takes a good whiff
       of breath but then are taken aback by the burnt flesh of
       the six guards Caladan killed.  Ayddar explains the diplomats
       were arguing for some time.  The party starts to move out..]

      ----------- Room D - Level 4 / Cell Room   --------------

      [Unali goes to unlock the doors, female first then male last.
       The females are dressed rather poorly in what looks like
       simple peasant rag tag dresses.  They are in their mid-30s
       it seems and in good shape.  The male is dressed in a tan
       brown like tunic and pants.  Unali notices his hands are
       rather calloused so must be a hard worker.  As she
       approaches and unlocks his cell he suddenly stands up
       which alerts Unali.  he then says "No!  Kill me here
       not with those creatures!" He says that in a pure marentian
       tongue.  The females say nothing.  Unali unlcoks the door
       and explains in Marentian he is in no danger.  The male hesitates
       then leaves the cell.  Unali turns and motions for the door
       and all three head out with Unali following.  As they leave
       the room.  Unali glances again at the empty table to make sure
       she didn't miss anything but finds nothing of value.  As they
       enter the room they spot the guard lying on the ground.  Unali
       and the male drag the guard in and lock them into one cell
       while Unali keeps a close eye on the females by the door.
       They re-enter the hallway and finally meet up with the others
       who walk closer.  Unali first spots Marta peering around the
       corner then the others.]

              ----------- Gargoyle Den ---------------

      [Z'leyra continues to go berserk with the corpses of the others.]

      [Jordi's noise ends as he paces the floor it suddenly stops.
       Neva smiles.  Jordi apologizes to everyone when he gets outside.
       Jordi and Neva notice the others have left already.  They
       decide to quietly leave and leave Z'leyra alone.  Valgor
       opens the door and lets them out.  Kayelle decides to stay
       to help if he can in some way.  Valgor then shuts the door
       and lets Jordi/Neva outside and meet up with the others.
       Valgor then opens the door in case Z'leyra needs to leave
       in a hurry and stands in the doorframe.  Valgor feels sorry
       for her but lets her continue.]

              ----------- Level 4 Hallway -------------

       [Unali continues to explain the exploration of level 4. That
        she found two prison cells rooms and a guard post.  She
        knocked out 3 guards and placed them in cells.  She also
        explains she found the stairs and believes this level is
        fully explored.  Farseeker, Suresh and Aren explain to
        her what occured in the gargoyle den.  Unali looks at
        Qorz then hands Aren the list.]
       Aren: "This is Qorz so this is.." [he approaches and pulls
        the man in the light for a better view.] "..is Ta..err I
        forgot your name but hav eseen you."
       Man: "Talz Mahon sir."
       Aren: "Yes Talz.  You were the navigation specialist of
        the last group." [Talz nods then sees Qorz they both say
         at the same time "I thought you were dead!"  Happy to see
         each other they quickly hug.]
       Farseeker: "Then who are they?" [pointing to the females]
       Aren: "No females were on the last mission..I don't know."
       [Suresh approaches and asks them a few questions in Climan.
        They nod and continue to chat with him.  Bits and pieces
        of words are caught but they speak so fast that some don't
        get all the words.  Suresh then turns a minute later and says.]
       Suresh: "It seems they say they were captured by a pirate ship
         while traveling the seas.  Their ship was caught off course
         by a small storm.  I tried to ask how they got here but they
         are not sure."
       Balrog: "Food for the gargoyles?"
       Triest: [looking at the females] "Should we kill them?"
         [But he notices they do not react] "They must not know
       Suresh: "They speak climan for sure.  Seem native tongue to
         them or they are fluent in it."
       Spaar: "Shall I take them back to the main cave as well with
         Qorz and Talz?"
       Talz: "We can help you fight if you want.  But I am a bit
         hungry and exhausted from torture.  I have no big wounds
         other than bruises but I could help if needed."
       Aren: "We may send for you two later.  But for now you should
         rest and eat.  We can take you back to the main entrance
         where we are using as a base camp.  Get some food and
         rest a bit."

       GM: Either way once the party begins to move to the stairs..

       [As the party gets within about 30 feet of the stairs door
        Suddenly a guard comes into view.  Farseeker, Unali,
        Triest and Trembyl are in the lead of the party.  The
        guard wearing leather and spear sees the large party.
        He quickly turns starts to run.  But bumps into someone.
        Suddenly the guard is thrown against the wall.  With everyone's
        eyes on the guard they did not notice or see Xian standing
        behind him.  He just appeared.  As the guard hits the wall
        suddenly the guard screams and seems to melt into the hard
        cave wall.  A loud few snaps are heard as bones are crushed or
        pulverized in some fashion.  The guard falls to the ground.
        Dirt and sand fall from the wall with a large impression where
        the guard hit the wall.  Everyone approaches Xian.]
       Trembyl: "What did you do!?"
       Xian: "Hi guys!  I did nothing.  I just pushed him against
         the wall.  My friend did the rest."
       Marta: [Marta leans and whispers to the group] "Here he goes
         again hes talking about imaginary people."
       Farseeker: "Your friend?"
       Xian: "Let me start from the beginging..."
       Trembyl: "We don't have time.  Just the basics!"
       Xian: "Fine.  When I died and Z'leyra helped me I went back
         to the main cave to rest.  There I saw this shadow move
         along the wall.  For a minute or two I thought for sure
         it was just a flicker of shadow from the wall torches or
         my vision had been messed up.  But then the shadow formed
         into a humanoid type thing and walked out of the wall.
         He walked around and looked at everyone and the animals.
         I noticed it walk toward me and he saw my head move in
         the direction he was moving.  He quickly realized I
         could see him.  He approaches and I could see a clearer
         form but it was fuzzy.  He looked human other than he
         had three eyes one in the top above the other 2.  He
         had these tentacle like antenae on his head.  His eyes
         were glowing a faint yellow.  At times I could see through
         him.  I quickly asked who or what he was but I saw nothing
         on his face move.  Yet I could hear and understand him.
         I learned later this is some form of telepathy."
        [Everyone looks around but sees nothing...Xian continues.]
        Xian: "I don't know how he knew my langauge but I think its
          more he doesn't know the language but its more mental
          thoughts or power that allows me to understand him."
        Farseeker: "Is it friendly?"
        Xian: "I'm getting to that.  He and it is a he apparently.
          Seems he is a creature ..err..hmm..being that lives here
          in this mountain.  His kind wakes up every few years.  I
          think its centuries but he has no concept of time.  They
          sleep otherwise and wake up to feed on the sea and then
          go back to sleep again.  They keep to themselves and-"
         Aren: "There smore?"
         Xian: "I haven't asked but from what he shows in my mind
           there is a family..maybe 4 or 5 others like him.  They
           are safe and he seems to be the one walking around
           the mountain awake.  It seems the Climans came and
           starting using their magic to build the caves and rooms.
           They encountered his lair and he awoke before his time.
           He is only defending his kind.  I don't think he is
           evil or good.  He simply is here.  He seems to
           think I mean him no harm.  He could've killed me and
           the others in the main cave but did not.  Thig's dogs
           seemed to know he was there but the others did not.
           Maybe it has something to do when I died.  Some after
           effect of that."
          Triest: "Wait.  How did you get here? We'd have seen
            you take the stairs." [Xian grins]
          Xian: "Seems he has the ability to travel through rock
            as we through air.  He can take solid form it seems
            but rarely and limited.  I asked how many he could
            travel with him he said only one person or thing
            but for a short period of time.  He then took me
            here when i told him I should show him to you guys.
            Before I knew it we were here and poof.  I didn't
            know what ot think so I cast a spell to make me
            non-solid just in case.  I [leans over] don't know
            if it will really work otherwise and fear not to try
            it.  [leans back] Anyways, we talked for some time.
            It seems he was the one who killed the guard Z'leyra
            wanted to question in the main cave.  He saw the
            climan and attacked."
           Neva: "How long has he been awake and been attacking?"
           Xian: "He believes only a short time but again has no
             concept of time.  I suspect not long.  Maybe a
             week or so.  Otherwise there would be more bodies
             everywhere.  He says the water bags..I gather that
             to be us humans are stopping him.  They seem to hav
             e created wards in some areas."
            Farseeker: "He's explored?  How much?"
            Xian: "Seems only two more levels above this one if I
              got his picture words right.  He didn't explore the
              full areas but it seems the one above here ...oh
              wait..what is this area?"
            Aren: "Some kind of Gargoyle holding level and prisoner
              cell areas."
            Xian: "So hmm..I was told one below is some treasure
              level so level five must be according to him a human
              barracks level.  He found rooms with pictures he
              showed me which look like beds.  The one above that
              seems to be something he doesn't understand.  Bunch
              of small caves with objects he doesn't recognize.
              But the pictures look like desks.  I figure it
              must be some sort of office level.  After that some
              magic or something stops him from going above that."
            Farseeker: "That will be useful.  Can he give details?"
            Xian: "No.  Not too clearly.  Its a bunch of words and
              pictures and hard to form into a map or image.  He
              says he can help but may not stick around at times
              while he explores to make sure his kind are not
              in danger.  At least I gather that.  So he may or
              may not show up.  As you can see he seems to have
              power to crush or merge someone into the cave
              wall.  Other powers I'm not sure about.  If he
              has any.  I gather though it weakens him when he
              uses such abilities."
            Neva: "You sure we can trust him?"
            Xian: "Frankly.  I gather that he just wants everyone
              out of this mountain so he can return to his kind
              and sleep.  If we stay here we could be in danger
              but I tried to explain to him that we will leave
              as soon as we explore the rest of the mountain.
              He agreed and felt it was with his goals."
            Farseeker: "We may have no choice.  Shall we continue?"
            Xian: "I'm not crazy!"
