Game Update #262 in sequence (file #454)
Admin notes: None
[Recap] - None
[New Stuff - Current Situation]
From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
Jordi hears Xian's explanations with interest. "Well, I
will turn invisible again -or at least, try it- and I
will go east... however, Xian, if you and your buddy
go east, I will then go west, because both of your make
a better combat team than myself alone. If a group ends
with its area, it can return back to help the other groups."
Jordi casts an invisibility spell.
Time: Estimated 6:27am-6:42am - Morning Day 22
----------- Gargoyle Den ---------------
[Z'leyra continues to defile the bodies of the creatures. Her
berserk continues for some time more...ignoring everything
else it seems.]
[Outside the den Valgor stands near the door. He gets word
that the others are moving out. He will catch up when
Z'leyra gets out of her grief.]
----------- Level 4 Hallway -------------
[Xian listens to Jordi]
Xian: "My friend..[he looks around but does not see him]
seems to have...disappeared. He does that. Has done
that. He is restless. Frankly I can't control him.
He will go where he wants and frankly I can't stop him.
He is very powerful but for now he is working not against
us but maybe not with us. Its that friend of my enemy
thing that seems to have him tolerate us."
Neva: "If you fail again maybe we should stand back."
[she smirks a sly smile at Jordi]
[The party takes a quick few seconds to drink some water from
their containers. Its been a long night..]
Farseeker: [with a sigh of exhaustion] "Shall we move on?"
Trembyl: "Xian, how can we trust this creature?"
Xian: "He could've killed me and everyone in the main cave
by now. I doubt he could kill all of us here before we
got some reaction but I believe he will tolerate us as long
as we leave shortly."
Aren: [Does a double take then looks at Xian] "You are the
only one to see it?" [He looks to everyone else but no one
seems to say anything] "That could be a problem. But
we can't dwell on this creature. Let's move on."
Triest: "Wait. Can't you elves and Faerry sense magic from
it? If so how much power did you sense?"
[Neva and Jordi shrug not being close enough to Xian.]
Thig: "I was able to get close. I didn't see anything.
But I did sense some magical power. Xian is a wizard so
it may be him but I sensed soemthing different but it was
muffled as if behing a cloak. So I don't know."
Farseeker: "Well let's go."
GM: The large group begins to filter down the hallway through
the door to the stairs to five. Jordi casts his spell and
indeed goes invisible this time with no ill effects.
[Jordi is the first to exit the door on level 5. He enters
a typical dark and quiet hallway. He sees no one so whispers
to those behind that initially the hallway is empty. He
[In the stairwell tunnel Trembyl moves in the cramped area
forward to the door..]
Trembyl: "Let's move. I still don't think we have much time."
[He goes to the door and opens it then walks out into the hall.
Then one ..two..three and the rest of the party begin to
emerge slowly but cautiously. They split up into their choosen
directions having seen three directions now.]
[Jordi passes a alcove to his right (north). It seems to o
in the darkness maybe 40-50 feet or more. He stops and
walks a few feet in but sees nothing. He figures its
an empty alcove. He backs up and then continues westward.]
[Trembyl turns eastward and moves forward. He soon turns
around a corner that moes northward and sees a door ahead.]
[Those going south start toward the south tunnel..]
[Wi and Neva are just passing the alcove. Neva looks in
and quickly knocks her bow and fires. A whoosh is heard.
Just as it flies a man is heard in climan "Halt!". At
the same second Jordi turns his head to see Neva fire
into the alcove. Jordi runs back the few feet. A thump
is heard in the alcove. Neva quickly reloads. Wi raises
his sword and with Thig and Neva enter the alcove. Its
pure dark but Neva seems to see well here.]
Neva: "Its clear. Just one guard. The alcove ends another
20 feet or so that way it looks like I see wall end there."
[Thig kneels and checks the guard who is wearing leather, sword
and a shield near him. He speaks..]
Thig: "Alive. But out."
[In fact the guard will probably bleed to death if left there.]
Thig: "Good shot!"
----meanwhile...at the same time...-----
[Trembyl enters the door with warstaff ready. Triest loads
his heavy crossbow. They charge into the odd shaped room.
They are surprised to find soft looking beds here. Suddenly
a female standing over a male in a bed turns around.]
Female: "What's the meaning of--" [in climan but stops suddenly]
[Another male in a corner grabs a dagger of his belt and raises
it. The male on the bed seems to stay in bed but looks at
the small group. Only 3 against 6]
Trembyl [in climan] "Surrender or die!"
[Cholan raises axe, Balrog, Ayddar and Troyis raises swords.
Triest aims heavy crossbow at the man in the corner.]
[The female sees its 2 against one and she isn't armed.
Two daggers against those weapons. She sighs and slumps
her shoulders. She nods. The guard in the corner also
sees his future. He thinks of charging but would probably
be cut down before he got a swing. He raises his dagger.
Then tosses it to the bed near him. The male in the bed
tosses his dagger onto the floor near him.]
[Trembyl waves his warstaff pointing to the center of the
Trembyl: "Move there!"
[They comply slowly. But the man in the bed tries to stand
but falls back. The female turns and speaks.]
Female: "I'm nurse here. He is too weak to stand."
Trembyl: "Fine. Take their weapons."
[Cholan, Ayddar and Troyis collect the two daggers and
take a cursory look around them to make sure no hidden
weapons are there. But they seem to find none. Trembyl
eyes the room and notices its full of bed. He sees
a table and a few supply shelves. It looks like jars
of herbs or dried fruit. He figures this must be some
sort of medical bay for the complex. Makes sense.]
Trembyl: "We need to take these three to the cells on 4
and lock them up. What's wrong with him?" [he asks
the nurse who sternly replies]
Nurse: "He is recovering from a minor stab wound. But
is recovering from a fever. He shouldn't be moved."
[Trembyl examines the male and finds a bandage on his
lower chest. He must've been bought in recently he is
still wearing a scrap of his leather armor. So is the
other guard. Trembyl decides he looks fine even though
he has no healing skills. He then stands and talks to
Trembyl: "We can carry him. Better yet. You nurse and
him will carr him. [he looks around and find a carry
bed like stretcher] Prepare him for the move. You can
take a few of the medical supplies with you if you need."
[Nurse simply nods then motions for the guard to collect
the man and bandages.]
[Trembyl to triest]
Trembyl: "We'll take them quickly down. We probably need to
find Unali. She probably has those cell keys. We must
tell Z'leyra about this room. Being a healer she might
could use some of those supplies."
----meanwhile...at the same time...-----
[Farseeker's group heads south. They march about 120 feet
south to find the tunnel ends. They spot a door in the
cave wall. It seems to be placed well and carved out
with skill and magical prowess. They notice the door
is pure iron and probably 3 inches or more thick. Impressive.
Something important is behind this door. They notice a key
lock. A slide window and screens on the outside which may
indicate more locks from inside. Farseeker turns to the
Suresh: "Surely they wouldn't put gargoyles up here. They
would want to consolidate them on one area for control.
Didn't xian say this level was human barracks?" [Kasha
nods in the dim light where only a lantern lights the door]
"If that's the case its not creatures. But it is something
important. Maybe Balrog can pick it?"
Kasha: "It seems though something may be on the other side.
Maybe more prisoner cells? The slide window seems to
Farseeker: "Why don't we just try the direct approach."
[He straightens his hair. wipes the sweat off his face.
Then straightens his clothes.]
"I look like one of those bodyguards I fought. So I'll
try the part."
Suresh: "Our ploys of masquerade seems to fail. Z'leyra
I believe failed twice or three times? So --" [but before
he finishes Farseeker bangs on the door with his great
sword. The others panic and clear out of view of the
[Seconds pass...Farseeker bangs again. A few more seconds.
Then the slide window opens and a pair of eyes are seen.]
Farseeker: "Inspect-" [opps marentian he cna't recall the
word for Climan inspection. He quickly coughs to cover
that up] "New orders."
Farseeker: "Open the door and I'll hand them to you."
Male: "Only the captain can order door open."
Farseeker: "Fine. I'll tell her you refused the order."
[He slowly turns and begins to walk away..a few voices
incide are heard - hmm more than 1 inside - then the
slide window opens fully.]
[Shocked that it may have worked he grins at Suresh then
turns back around.]
Farseeker: "Yes!?" [copying the same tone as the guard]
Farseeker [sighing] "I don't have time for this!"
[then he quickly this time starts to walk over. The
slide window closes and a lock mechanism is heard.
A creak is heard and the door slowly opens. A head
Male: "Wai-" [then he sees the others. He quickly
draws back but Kasha pushes him inside away from
the door handle. Kasha and Ris charge into the room
first. Farseeker opens the door fully and they
[Combat breaks out..]
[Kasha swings his mace at guard #11 but fails to hit in
the shuffle of bodies..]
[Guard #12 wearing chain and welding a pike thrusts
at kasha but in the confusion fails to hit..]
[Suresh thrusts at Gaurd #11 and passws his shield
enoguh to do 3 points of damage past the guard's
[Guard #11 with chain, sword and shield swings on
suresh but fails to hit.]
[Ris helps Suresh and hits the guard #11 with sword
but onlyd oes 1 point of minor damage..]
[Aren swings on guard #12 but fails to hit..]
[Guard #13 wearing Ringmail and sword swings on Ris
but fails to hit..]
[Farseeker runs into the room and charge sthe pikeman.
Who would weld a pike in this tiny space must be crazy?
He charges and thrusts his great sword and impales the
guard doing massive damage. The guard dies instantly]
[Kasha swings on guard #11 but again fails to hit..]
[Suresh swings on Guard #11 hits and does the damage
needing to kill the guard and then some. The guard
falls to the floor..]
[Ris turns toward Guard #12 and swings but misses..]
[Aren helps Ris but also fails to hit the fast guard..]
[Guard #13 the last guard swings at Aren but no hit..]
[Farseeker, Kasha and Suresh all fail to hit Guard #12.
He seems to be deftly dodging blows. So do Ris and
Aren both fail to strike!]
[Guard #13 however wipes at Ris and knicks him doing
a minor point of damage..]
[Farseeker thrusts at Guard #13 and hits doing 8 points
of damage. This knocks the guard to the floor but
he is still breathing.]
[Before anyone says anything Ris stabs the guard once
more and finishes him off...]
Aren: "You didn't have to do that."
[Ris simply grabs his bleeding arm and stops the blood.]
[The small group looks around the room then realizes where
they are. Shelves and boxes all over the place. Shiny
equipment and armor..weapons..]
Suresh: "Wow! We hit gold!"
Aren: "An armorery."
[Farseeker goes to the desk to look for documents..while
the others quietlly look around the room..]
----meanwhile...at the same time...-----
[Jordi continues westward...he soon sees a guard moving
in his direction. He must've heard the shout. Jordi
sees he has a sling on his belt and a dagger in belt
and one in hand. Jordi lets the guard walk right
past him. He then draws a dagger of his own. He
quickly gets behind the guard and with one arm places
his arm under the guard's arm and twist. He then pulls
the other arm with dagger up against the guard's neck
and slices his throat cleanly. A gargle and the guard
falls to the ground.]
[Jordi continues westward. He notices several closed doors.
He moves down the hall hearing the others following. As
soon as he gets another 120 or so feet down the hall his
spell wears off and he becomes visible again..He quickly
ducks against the wall and notices a door near him.]
