Decipher Script is trained only. Mecano sees gibberish.

Nine, would read Magic work? Is there a spell that can read gibberish?

Wow, this is interesting, there's writing on the wall, i'm have a little trouble making it out though...

Decipher Script (1d20+9=16)

OUT OF CHARACTER
If the above did not work, then see below...

 

Um, not sure that Read magic would work here, might though. But i think i have a better option. It will take a little time to prepare though, about 15 minutes or so. Conprehend Languages should work for us. I'll try to write down what it says as i read it.


Nine gets out some paper, pen and ink. then sits on teh floor with his spell book and begins to prepare his open spell slot for 1st level as Comprehend Languages.

Prepare Comprehend Languages (1d20+10=21)

Then cast spell, and read script and write down what it says.

Comprehend languages offers no insight into its meaning, nor did your Decipher Script roll.

Hmmm Comprehend languages does not work!?!? What the... Hey wait. Perhaps we need to look using two marbles?

Mecano tries to combine two Marbles to look through them.

Cycling through the marbles, Mecano finds that they are matched so that if the marble that yields writing on the left wall is combined with the marble that yields writing on the front wall, he gets the beginning of the message, then he moves the marbles so that he can read more. As he turns, he can get more and more of the message. It reads:
Ridgell!

I knew you would figure it out! I promised you that when I outgrew my spellbook, I would leave it to you, but I wouldn't let it be that easy! You are not to open it until you are ready for it! So, to deactivate the traps, you must cast the following spells in the following order on the front cover of the book. I have set it to disable the traps inside:

Dispel Magic
Transmute Mud to Rock
Veil
Stone to Flesh

Once you cast those four spells, the book is yours!

Ah Mecano, that's Brilliant!


As Mecano reads the script, Nine is visibly excited.

Wow, thats Great!! But i wonder which one of those is his spellbook?


Nine writes this down on his papers.

pretty sure it is this one here, the one without the clasp.

Nine Shows the book that had the Sepia Serpent Trap on it.

The initial messge is from Xander and implies that the book is filled with traps. I stopped looking through it after the Sepia Serpent. But now at least we know how to get by the traps. The Clasp on this other one is still being pretty confounding though.

Well, so much for that. So let's get back to Mychasi, if he's still around... Then see if we can find the source of those undeads a few leagues away, using the map we have.
OUT OF CHARACTER
What "time" are we in the day? DO we have the time to return to Mychasi before nightfall?

It is approaching nightfall now. It is a half-day journey to where Mychasi is, so you would arrive just about daybreak.

Actually, we have plenty of Light! Let's leave now.

Mecano grabs one of the everburning torches and prepares to leave.
Shai wrote:Opening the door, the group discovers an unlit storage area. The large storeroom is about twenty feet by thirty feet with an empty doorway on the right wall. A thorough search of the room would take quite a long time, as it is nearly filled to capacity with crates. A quick search could be completed in two hours, but that would just be a cursory glance at everything this room is storing. A more in-depth search would take about 40 hours. Through the empty doorway, there is a short corridor which turns to the right. The corridor is lit by several everburning torches mounted on the wall.

Following Mechano's lead, Verbal also grabs an everburning torch off the wall and joins the party. A most interesting tower, thinking for a moment he continues, I would have liked to find that schema. The possibilities of what it could reveal!

You all make your way back to the area where you last saw Mychasi. He is not around. The woods seems quiet near the border of the animated objects. However, with a little searching, you eventually a small wooden bridge crafted in the trees. Closer investigation brings you to a small gathering of humans, and from the distance, you can hear the incessant chatter of the tiny dragon.

As the group approaches, Mychasi seems to take notice your arrival, then turns and continues chatting with an elf about something, ignoring the group entirely.

Mecano advances slowly: Mychasi! I see you made some new friends! Greetings. I am Mecano and behind me is Nine, Phantom and Verbal. We investigated that weird tower Illiana told us about... Mecano trails off.

More softly, Mecano turns fully to Mychasi: Mychasi, we need to speak... about Kyberious... Sadness creeps in Mecano's voice. He raises an Arm, inviting the little Dragon to land on it.

Mychasi continues to ignore Mecano as he is talking, ...I just feel like I belong here I have family that cares about me it feels like home to me now I used to think that way about another group that I traveled with but they left me here just like... He actually pauses momentarily, then continues, ...But now that I have you as my family... The human he is with says, I think you should talk to them.

With an angry glare, Mychasi turns and begins casting. Before Mecano knows what is going on, Mychasi completes his spell.

Nine and Phantom recognize the spell:

Mark of the Outcast
A relatively harmless spell that gives the recipient penalties in social dealings.

What is odd: the spell is a divine spell...

Turning fully to the humanoids, Mecano says

My apologies for interrupting. May I know who you are, as we have already introduced ourselves?

The human looks Mecano up and down and says, I am Gellar. I heard of your journey to the accursed tower. I must say I am surprised that you were able to return. When Mychasi found us, I told him that you had likely been killed, that no one could reach the tower alive. Apparently, the magics don't consider you alive in the same way, yet I am told that your kind do have souls. I find the idea that beings created with magic having souls slightly confusing. My practices are to shun metal, and yet, it seems that you must possess some form of connection to the land, as your soul ties you to it.

I am sorry that I am rambling. I simply have many thoughts running through my head. I apologize for Mychasi's reaction. He told us that you are his family, and that Kyberious, especially, is a dragon-warforged! I had not known that was possible. But now, you say that Kyberious is deceased?


Mychasi has his back turned to Mecano and Gellar, but it seems obvious that he is listening.
