[PbP] Legacy Of Fire - Howl of the Carrion King - Church Crypt

The wishes unleashed over the ages by two genies have warped the Pale Mountain region to keep alive both a terrible beast and a heroic protector. These wishes have subtly warped the weave of the world to put a handful of adventurers on a trail to Kelmarane. It is these adventurers who will tread the path of fate at its most treacherous juncture, and it is they who will ultimately chart the course of history.

[PbP] Legacy Of Fire - Howl of the Carrion King - Church Crypt

Post by Duniagdra » Sun Sep 23, 2012 2:47 pm

Confident that you're ready, you all depart. Before you leave, Garavel requests you wait and hands Almah a leaf of paper. She looks at it and blushes. She then addresses the group of you.

[talk]My friends. Please accept my apology. There is something I can add.[/talk] She reads the note a moment than looks to you. [talk]About twenty years ago, Kelmarane’s priests of Sarenrae fell under the sway of something… foul from the Great Beyond. The creature took control of the high priest and eventually turned the people of Kelmarane to madness. Soldiers of the Pactmasters pacified the town and left it in ruin, but they were never able to root out the evil, and instead locked it in the crypt of the village church. Now, after all these years, that evil must have waned, and you should be able to defeat it once and for all. I’ve given you the interdict key that will get you through the seal. With the final defeat of the fiend within, Kelmarane will truly be free.

Also, it's been requested that the remains of the huecuva Halruun are brought to rest in the crypt. His curse was punishment enough and does seem the right thing to do. Bury his remains, and belongings there so Sarenrae may grant him rest.[/talk]

None too keen on bringing along something you've slain for being evil, you begrudgingly do. Carrying the body does not hamper your movement and off you go. You enter the church by its main entrance. Most of the walls of this forlorn ruin still stand, but the interior walls have been demolished and gutted. Several skeletons litter the structure’s interior, including about a dozen garbed in the red-chitin livery of the Pactmaster Guard. The rest appear to have been clerics of Sarenrae or even common citizens, though the past 20 years have rotted away most of the skin and clothes worn by the corpses. Ash and fire stains the interior walls and ceiling throughout most of the structure, and signs of violent battle are everywhere.
Near the center of the church stands a forlorn stairwell that leads down to a heavily barred door. A strange metal plate with a glowing series of irregularly etched lines mars the surface of the door, casting the stairs in a dull red illumination. This is the interdict seal placed on the door by the Pactmaster Guard to keep the daemon Xulthos imprisoned in the crypt below. Matching the ridges of Almah’s interdict key with the glowing series of irregular etched lines on the interdict seal at the barred door to the church’s crypt causes the red glow to fade, as the key and the seal fuse together. With the wards no longer present, the door is easily opened and you enter the first chamber. The stairs lead to a rounded stone-walled chamber with a featureless door in the north wall. A ten-foot-diameter circle of mortared stones at the center of the room marks a well that descends even deeper into the earth. Next to the well, on a small pedestal, is a large gong. A short stick capped with a round pad of moldering leather dangles from a cord attached to the gong platform.

Simi moves to the edge of the well and peers down into its depths. He looks at the others and says [talk]Well, who wants to check the door?[/talk]

[talk]Is this gong Magical? Perhaps this was the alarm system...?[/talk] Ox asks, hoping a caster will check for magic. He checks out the gong, but does not touch it.

Simi peers down into the well and sees it's bone dry and thirty feet deep.
Kroft goes to the door and discovers there is no physical means of opening it; there are no handles or key locks. Even a detailed thorough search of the door and surrounding area reveal nothing. All doors open somehow though. He just needs to figure how this one does.
Ox looks at the gong contemplating purpose and looking for someone else to see if there's more to it.

Laron looks around the room dispassionately before adopting a position next to the entrance. He mentally asks Katja to keep a watch on things from outside, which she does through circling the city with the occasional stop for breath on top of the chapel.

Scully focuses his attention on the gong. He finds something odd about it. While it does emit a faint aura, he's unable to identify the type of aura radiating from it.

[talk]Scylly, can you also check the door for Magics?[/talk] Ox asks, wondering if the door shares the same type of magic as the gong - thus being linked.

[talk]Allright - everyone ready?[/talk] Ox braces his weapon on his left shoulder, and picks up the short stick with his right hand.
He looks at everyone, making sure to give them time to be prepared (in game turns, 2 rounds) then hits the gong with the padded side of the stick - not too hard, but as hard as he thinks is necessary to make use of the weird 'device'.
THINKING: Darn gong will wake up all the evil of this place...

Getting ready for anything Scully casts Mage Armor on himself (round 1, lasts 5 hours). And then readies a burning hand spell in case it is needed.

Mak strikes the gong and its resonance fills the chamber. You're all alert for anything that may happen, but at the gong fades to silence, nothing happens. Moments pass and when you think doing this was a waste you suddenly hear the sound of grinding. Looking to the expected, the door that has no handles begins to slide to the right into the wall. To your surprise though, you hear the sound of grinding from the well also. Before anyone can look into the well, it comes to life with flame. The flame rises from the well and separates into three fiery angles.
  1. Round 1
  2. Angles (3) <--- Full Action Taken
  3. Durmisht <--- Full Action
  4. Kroft <--- Full Action
  5. Laron <--- Full Action
  6. Scully <--- Full Action
  7. Mak <--- Full Action
  8. Simi <--- Full Action

[talk]Fire?[/talk] Laron says, thinking back to the earlier battle with fire. [talk]Not again...[/talk]

He alternates his looks between his scimitar and his sling before sighing and placing a bullet into the sling.

[talk]Wait... Do we even know if these things are hostile yet? Maybe they're just guards to keep something from coming out...?[/talk]

He will hold his action for now.

With the door open, Kroft is loathe to leave that at the party's back. To make sure he listens closely to make sure no surprises come at them from behind.
Perception: [dice]1[/dice]

If he hears something coming, he takes a stance, ready to engage. If he hears nothing, he moves to AA12.
