If I attempt to do anything at the door, what type of check will it be? If it involves some type of Knowledge check, then I can't do it.

Possible things to do at the door: Search, Attempt to open. I can't think of anything else.

Kaito will search the door in attempt to understand the workings of it.

Searching the door, it seems the heat is coming from the other side. It is unlocked and untrapped, but who knows what dangers await on the other side?!? Is everyone prepared?

You make camp and rest for another day. Since you had not been awake for very long, you rest for about twenty hours before you are ready to continue again. For those of you with the ability to repair warforged through crafting, you may make one attempt if you need to rest before preparing spells. Otherwise, you can make two attempts. Not needing supplies makes this quite a simple prospect!

Shai, is it ok for me to switch my ranks in Heal to Craft: Alchemy since it would be more useful for me to do that since I'm the main healer of the party.

Sure, although Craft: Alchemy won't help repair warforged. If you want to repair, you need one of the following: Armorsmithing, Blacksmithing, Gemcutting, or Sculpting.

Kaito, being the most damaged in the group, spends his time repairing himself. Unfortunately, with no artisan's tools, it is difficult work. Using scraps of metal you find, he is able to do a little work on himself, especially with Yahjhank's help [8 hp repaired]. Another 8 hours of repairing unfortunately proves fruitless. An hour of prayer in the morning and Kaito recovers his spells.

Tracker uses up nearly half of his berries with two castings of Goodberry. He produces 11 magical berries. An hour of prayer and he has his spells back. (Nargath, need your updated character).

Yahjhank studies his new book, trying to prepare spells from it. (He needs to choose spells to attempt to prepare. Spellcraft DC 15+Spell level per preparation per spell). If he wants to prepare the same spell more than once, he needs to make the spellcraft check each time.

Shard is the only one who does not need any preparation, but unfortunately, he has no craft skills.

Everyone is still down 3 hp.

During our rest time, you notice that Tracker acting oddly. He is erratic in his movements, and the thick layer of ironwood that covers his body seems to be moving very, very slowly, twisting, writhing and warping, both on the surface and just underneath. It almost looks like the ironwood is growing again!
As we all start gearing up to pushing on, the wood's movement seems to slow down. Tracker's ironwood layer has now warped and twisted itself, almost angrily. There are now lots of ridges, knots, barbs and other general mounds and gullys along his body that weren't there before. Also, some colouring has come through the wood, very dark in places, sometimes purple, sometimes very dark gray.
But the biggest change has been in Tracker's face. The wood was affected there too. Now the wood on Tracker's face has been reshapen in to a caricature of what it used to be, but now looks much more chaotic, but also more tree-like.

"W-what happened to me? I feel so strange. Something was pulling at my connection to the earth, to the Becoming God. I do not understand it fully."
Tracker then looks at his now changed arms and torso. He stays like that for a good while.
Suddenly he looks up at the rest of the group.
"By the Becoming God! I have been touched by the land itself! It wasn't a struggle, the earth was rewarding me for helping the Becoming God acheive his goal, by reigniting the life in my body! The earth is telling me that we are on the right track!"
Tracker jumps to his feet, and seems more determined than he has in a while.
"Come my brothers, this is surely a sign that we are to be successful in our quest!"

Kaito was a bit shocked when he saw Tracker's new form. He wasn't sure if the transformation was due to Becoming God. It could be due to his unique construction since he was built in the Mournlands. Following Shard's lead, he began to check if the door was safe before opening it.

As Kaito is opening the door, Tracker stands up from talking softly to Wolf, grabs the double-scimitar, pauses, and then sparks start flow up the blades. Smaller, less noticable sparks crawl all over Tracker's body.

"Woah, that felt very weird, shook me to the core. Must be more of the Becoming God's gift, or at least a by-product of it."

He then turns to the door holding his weapon at the ready.

Opening the doors reveals a large chamber stretching away from the doorway, and intense heat shimmers in the air. A raging bonfire burns about 40 feet away, near the far wall, casting shadows down the room. A second one burns about 60 feet away, along the southern wall. In the center of the room, a large crucible filled with bubbling molten glass radiates terrible heat. Long, snaking heads made of iron and brass rise up from the molten pool like some metal hydra. Just south of the crucible and the construct, a crystalline chest reflects the hot light. Through the translucent material, you can see that the chest contains a variety of objects, including what can only be the diamond-shaped schema that the letter described. Then, with an angry crackle of flame and a threatening hiss of steam, the bonfires begin to move toward you.

Shard is up first.

Machine room: Red dots represent the bonfires moving towards you, The large silver circle represents the crucible, and the blue square represents the construct it contains. The center of this room looks exactly like what was viewed from the room beyond the mirror room. The only moving objects are the two bonfires and molten glass bubbling in the crucible. The construct jutting from the crucible is completely still.

This is a view of the entire facility as you have discovered thus far:

Tracker calls out.
"Brothers, take care! These are more than living spells! They are proper fire elementals!, and could be quite challenging!
My guess is that they have been trapped here, for some time. There has to be an easier solution than fighting them!
If that is this the same room as what we saw in the illusion, then there should be something in the chest marked with Protection from Fire, right Kaito?"


Teacker tells Wolf to go wait up the corridor (away from the elementals) and stand guard in case something comes at them from behind.

"Tracker, I rather deal with the elementals right now than getting to that chest. Who knows if those snakes are active or not?"

Kaito takes a 5-foot step and casts defensively. He casts Magic Weapon on his Warhammer.

I know that I didn't prepped it on my character sheet but Kaito would be smart enough to realize that there might be more living spells and wanted to useful in those fights.

Actually, looking back at it, Tracker still has a full-round action. Speaking is always a free action, and handling animal for a druid with his animal companion is a free action, as well. That leaves a full-round action for you.

Tracker moves in to the room, to the top left square around the southern fire elemental (that way I don't provoke AoO). Tracker uses his movements to examine the roof and the crucible, and loudly talks to himself.
"Why is the roof so different from all the other rooms?"

I'm forgoing an attack in my actions, as Tracker still believes there is an easier way.
