voice on the far wall, or nobody but Dorhak?]

            GM: Ack. Sorry all heard it 
yes.  Excellent post.  See that's how to do 
it.  Folks complain there's not enough to do for 
themselves. The true gamer can act and speak up 
without prying it out.  So good post.

         [New Stuff]

         [Ma 3rd, 1636TH]
         [Time: 1:10 pm – South-East of Ma'Dor]

            Raddok is still grasping Barbosa by 
the shoulders after pulling him off Velf, when 
Barbosa, seeing Dorhak clinging desperately to 
the far cliff's edge, leaps to a stand, crying out to the light "Take me!"

            Raddok's eyes widen & his mouth falls 
open as the lights glow brighter & Dorhak is 
gathered and lifted in the beams, to safety. The 
miner leans forward to grasp Barbosa's shoulder 
again, and whispers softly in Dwarf Elder, "I 
think you might have - did you - wow, you might 
have just helped save Dorhak." Suddenly he 
remembered his role in this venture, and added, a 
little louder, again in the Dwarf's tongue, "Now 
I have to shake you up a bit for supposedly 
disobeying, so," and his volume increased & he 
shook the dwarf's shoulders a bit, gripping hard, 
"you have to be more careful & remember you're a 
playing a prisoner here! And so do I!," and 
shoving the dwarf back, he released him, glaring 
at all those around, eyes ending at the view 
across the cleft. He knew a bit about how Barbosa 
felt at the moment, & he silently sent a prayer 
upwards, "God of Dorhak, please keep your servant 
and our friend safe from harm. So may it be."

            Dorhak rises after being 
unceremoniously dropped by the dwarvish runes. 
He's not offended as this is just the way of his 
kind.  He wipes his nose, and carelessly wipes 
away some of the blood onto his 
clothes.  Ouch!  That hurts. Broken again.  He 
doesn’t really care.  It’s not like it ruins his Adonis-type good looks.

            He chuckles to himself about 
that.  It’s not like he hasn’t seen a mirror.

            He rather dreads answering the 
voice.  He hopes to the gods that none of the 
others on the other side will hear the 
declaration of his lineage.  It’s just too much 
shame to endure, especially in front of Barbosa. 
The others likely won’t understand even if they hear it in their own language.

            "Yes, I am ready, as any dwarf 
warrior should be any time!" he says defiantly.  Then nothing happens.

            Dorhak whispers it low so no one hears but the wall.

            He takes a deep breath, and begins to 
recite in Dvallin, knowing full well he must 
succeed despite the chance of failure.  He girds 
himself and says as boldly as he is able, "I am 
Dorhak, a new name given me by my people.  My 
birth name, though I dread to voice it, is 
Glanur, son of Henwas Rubysmith, son of Pany 
Crystalgold, son of Ergyryad Opaldwarf, son of 
the Crystal Clan and, ultimately, proud son of 
our great king Dvallin, the greatest dwarf, and 
who is the son of Goibniu, creator of our 
race.  And if you should strike me down, I gladly 
die with pride in my lineage and our gods!"

            From behind the others only hear a 
murmur as Dorhak gently moves the still lit torch to the side.

            Moments pass that string into an eternity.

            Then the voice speaks again this time 
with a dim green hue, “Dorhak son of Henwas 
Rubysmith.  You surely would have died if the 
fates and your companions did not interfere.  You 
did not have faith for the crossing.  But faith 
can be replaced by bravery and 
determination.  The potential sacrifice of your 
friend is enough to turn the tide.  A second 
chance, only given once, is granted.  All interference will be stopped now.”

            A energy field shows up behind Dorhak 
at the edge of the cliff.  It is a star field of 
white particles but clear enough to see throw.

            The voice continues and Raddok 
translates.  Velf nods, “this is where only a few 
got to.  No one has answered 2 
questions.  They...found themselves falling and 
failing.  But good thing is they are allowed more 
than one guess.  Typically we can hear them but they can't hear us.”

            “What is there but not seen.  What 
encompasses the mind and heart. Without one is 
lost.  With it direction and purpose.  What is it?”

            The runes turn to a dull yellow as 
the wall transforms into a dark shiny surface 
like some use to divine visions from a bowl of water.

            Arawn watches and understands no elf 
was probably here.  Just dwarves. Dwarf magic is 
not as common and is typically for armor or 
weapons.  Great craftsman magic can also be done like this major rune-wall.

         Actions? Comments?

         Next Update...Mon/Tue?

         GM: Sorry for delay.  Been a hectic week 
with doc visits and losing sleep 2 days due to 
early stuff to do.  Plus staff slacking and 
storms delay stuff as well. I can try to work on 
next post as soon as Dorhak replies.  Others are 
free to post as Raddok did so well.  I'll try 
Mon/Tue if I'm delayed this weekend.  Thanks for hanging in there.
