Valeros comments...[talk]The last moan we heard came from the door to the south. Our time would be better spent getting that door open. Pehaps if we all took station at each lever and one at the door. As far as what sequence we should move the levers, I suggest we move them all at once. No reason just a hunch.[/talk]

[talk]Three levers and four of us...[/talk] Merisiel ponders. [talk]Valeros should stand by the door whilst the rest of us pull on the levers simultaneously. He's probably best suited to repel whatever might come at us. We can open trap-doors later, for now we should find whoever's in trouble.[/talk] She will then move to A17, ready for everyone to take their positions.

Kyra moves over to the third lever, ready to pull it when everyone else does.

Kyra wrote:[talk]Maybe we should trigger these closed pits, just to make sure no one fell in and got trapped down there,[/talk] Kyra says. She moves to H19 and pokes the floor where Mersiel said there was a pit (at I19).
Kyra applies pressure at i19 and sure enough, the floor gives way in front of her.
Ezren wrote:[talk]That is a good thought Kyra, was the moan from this room or from beyond the south door[/talk]
Ezren trys to trigger the pit trap at C17 to see if anyone is at the bottom. Once the trap is sprung, he checks at the bottom and can see something whitish at the bottom - most likely a pillow according to him.

Sure enough, a nice rewarding 'CLICK' can be heard at the locked door, as the locking mechanism is triggered open. As nothing 'jumps' in Valeros's face, everyone joins him at the door and takes their standard marching order positions. Checking the door, Merisiel sees that it can be opened from the other side, but not this one - hence the ingenious mechanism. She checks for traps in the new corridor and, seeing none, looks around. She moves to a corner (still checking for traps and finding none) to get a better view and sees a door at 30' distance, and another corridor at 20'. The other corridor on her right, goes 20' then makes a sharp turn toward the south.

What is more apparent though, is the number of broken bones strewn in the south corridor, many of which are cracked and broken.


As you stand there, you can easily hear some someone - or something - sobbing; definitively coming from the south (bottom of the Map)

[talk]There is something for sure not right about the south corridor and yet, there is that sobbing coming from that direction. I still say it might be a trap. I am going to take a step to the west to see what it looks like.[/talk]

Merisiel cautiously moves to P20, keeping an ear out for which direction the sobbing is coming from and checking for traps.

[talk]Kyra I'll stay with Merisiel if you want to cover Ezren's back[/talk] Valeros waits for Kyra's response and will follow Merisiel moving to O20, if Kyra agrees.

[talk]Fine, I'll watch Ezren. But we need to move south quickly to help whoever's in danger.[/talk] Kyra moves to M19, where she can keep an eye on Ezren but still be ready to head south.

Ezren moves to the west, and sees the corridor going south 10', before turning west.

Merisiel cautiously moves soiuth down the musty corridor, keeping an ear out for which direction the sobbing is coming from and checking for traps. She does not find any traps, only broken bones as she makes her way southward. The sobbing definitively comes from the southern door.

While Kyra moves to keep an eye on the adventurous Ezren, Valeros follows Merisiel down the corridor, noisily crushing old bones under his feet...the sobbing suddenly stops as Valeros arrives behind the Rogue.

[whisper]Whoever it is probably heard us...[/whisper] Merisiel murmurs, mostly to herself. She moves to Q20, taking a look down that corridor, before moving on to S20 and checking the door.

Kyra moves to M16 to keep an eye on Ezren, but complains, [talk]Should we really be splitting up? It's clear the sobbing is coming from the other direction, Ezren.[/talk]

Valeros excuses himself for his noisy advance.

Ezren moves down the corridor, and sees another door 15' away.

Merisiel steps 5' to look into the side corridor, which ends with a door 15' distant. She cautiously continues southward up to the door, all the while checking for traps. She finds none on the floor nor on the door. The door itself is not in good shape; the lock is obviously broken, and wood is chipped in many places.

Kyra follows Ezren.

With a sigh of relief, Kyra follows Ezren back toward the others, taking her usual position at the rear (maybe N20 or farther south if Valeros moves up).

[talk]I don't mind taking point Merisiel, but let's get Ezren and Kyra up here for support[/talk] Valeros moves back and waves to Kyra and Ezren to follow, and then moves forward to the door as Merisiel suggested, and waits before opening the door.

Valeros applies his foot to the door, which starts to open... but abruptly stops after only an inch. Something is blocking the door and will require more 'humph' to open!
