Ground Floor of the Abbey

You and your newfound companions have been contracted to investigate Slip Gallows Abbey, the past headquarters of the late (and unlamented) Gray Deacons. Over forty years ago, all of the Gray Deacons were claimed by an unknown curse and their headquarters sealed by the same magic. Your employer has learned of a way inside and has hired your group of adventurers to slip inside and claim the treasure of the Gray Deacons

Ground Floor of the Abbey

Post by JPetherick » Thu Mar 28, 2013 10:31 pm

Garoth studies the stairs carefully and sees no signs of any traps or other threats. He and Mugtork creep up the stairs, looking upa nd over into the bare room at the top of the stairs. Once they are past the landing, both of them can look down the corridor that leads to the south. As they noted before, the high narrow windows are not allowing much light to enter the room. While both half-orcs can see easily, humans and others without darkvision may require some light to pierce the shadowy illumination within the room and the darker corridor.

The others come up behind them, waiting on the stairs for the all clear to proceed. Precious waits below on the landing for Striker to move ahead.

The only exit from the room is a corridor that stretches to the south. The far end of the corridor is dark except for those who have darkvision. Five doors are closed along the east side of the corridor and those with darkvision can see a heavier door at the far end. The opposite, west wall is bare and featureless with no sign of doorways or openings.

Garoth peers around and does not observe any signs of traps or hazards in the room or within the limits of his vision down the corridor. Striker activates his ioun torch and uses the improved light to spot the outlines of a hidden or secret door in the west wall, just south of the stairs.

Striker and the others argue for exploration of the secret door so Garoth obliges. The half-orc checks the door carefully and finds no sign of traps. He then takes his tools out and fiddles with the lock, gently working his picks until he feels the mechanism move slightly and the catch releases with a faint click.

This room is large and cloaked with magical darkness. The half-orc's darkvision cannot see the far corner of the room. They can, however, see a door close by in the south wall and a spiral staircase to the north. The floor of the room is decorated with a pattern of stone tiles but the pair cannot discern whether the tiles form a pattern.

After a hushed discussion, the conclusion is to secure this door and continue to explore. Garoth swings the secret door shut as quietly as he can before moving down the corridor to the south. The half-orc does not detect any traps or anything else of interest.

Each of the doors on the east side of the corridor are well-made and still tightly fitted in the frames. Neither Garoth nor any of the others can see any sign of what lies beyond the doors. In contrast, the door at the southern end of the corridor is visibly thicker and more secure. It, too, is tightly closed.

Garoth returns and checks the firsr door for any signs of traps and finds none. After allowing Kasidra and Thoros to examine the room beyond, the half-orc rogue slides the door open gently. The small chamber beyond is dimly illuminated by a narrow window high on the opposite wall. The room is nearly filled by a simple bed, a table and chair and a small chest at the foot of the bed. A suit of leather armor is hung on a rack on the far wall, below the window, along with a light crossbow and a quiver of bolts. The layer of dust upon every level surface suggests that this chamber has not been opened for years, possibly decades.

[ooc]All the rooms will probably be the same, except maybe the one to the south. So to proceed faster, for every Door/Room, Thoros will act in the same manner: Detect Undead in the corridor and through the door into the room, then Detect Magic once the Room is secured. Thoros will be more vigilant for southern door.[/ooc]

Garoth checks the first room before entering and examining the small chest, a foot locker actually, at the foot of the bed. While the half-orc studies it, the others continue to explore the corridor and the other doors. After determining that the foot locker is not trapped, Garoth works at the lock and opens it once he is finished. The foot locker contains folded clothing and, tucked beneath a set of thieves tools and a small purse that clinks pleasingly when the half-orc removes it. Glancing inside, sees that the coins are mostly silver and copper but there are some glints of gold.

The others have, by this time, opened and examined the other doors on the eastern side of the corridor. Each room is similar and the series appears to be private dormitory rooms. Each bedchamber contains a foot locker and has gear hung on the wall. Altogether, the party has now found 5 sets of leather armor, 3 light crossbows, 2 short swords, 50 bolts and 5 daggers.

While this exploration has been going on, Kasidra and Thoros have been scanning for the presence of evil and undead. The wall to the east is too thick to scry through but when they get to the south door, the two detect the presence of evil and undead beyond the closed door.
