[Active Thread] The Wretched Riddles of Redcliffe

Like in real life, the circumstance of your birth are out of your control, but what you make of yourself after that is up to you. Welcome to the Wilderlands, where life is cheap, travel is dangerous and a strong sword arm is worth more than a purse full of gold!

In spite of all the careful searching, nothing is found in this room. If anything, the stones in this boring room are even more smooth and featureless than the rest of the dungeon.

Volgen snorts in discontentedly before leaving the room and leading the party to the doors at the end of the hall, moving to square 1828, unless someone stops or says otherwise to him.

Straia moves to 1827, also disappoint with the results and talking to her self as she moves to the other door following Volgen's lead... [talk]Well that was hardly worth the stress and effort. What is this place with all the riddles? Who would go to all this trouble?[/talk] thinking for a moment... [talk]Unless the answer to the riddle determines whats left behind after answering it correctly... hmmm that must be it.[/talk]

As Volgen walks away and hears Straia's comment he too begins to wonder that. He says to her over his shoulder without looking, [talk]That's not a bad thought, my lady.[/talk] His voice is softer in tone without so much of his usual growl...for just a moment then he says, [talk]Mages, clerics of evil gods...hate them all...[/talk] his voice now back to it's usual tone but something else comes with it and it almost seems like palpable hate.

Domasa flies to the far wall of the empty room and touches it. Nothing happens. The wall feels like it looks: smooth, solid stone.

Hela hangs behind while the rest of the party moves to the next set of doors. When Gratchl's search turns up nothing, Volgen opens them.

Beyond is another room. This one is brightly lit; the walls, the ceiling, and the floor all glow like day. The only exception is a 10' diameter cylinder of shadow in the middle of the room. No light penetrates this area, either from the lights you carry or from the glowing walls of the room.

Volgen looks into the room suspiciously, offering a glance down to Gratchl with one eyebrow raised he cautiously walks into the room (round 1 walking to 1829 and round 2 walking to 1830).

Gratchl will move into the room along the wall to space 1529. Once everyone is in the room she will venture towards the shadow, not entering but peering in.

Once the detect magic is cast she will ask [talk]"Do you want me to go in and see if I can see anything? If so, anyone have a rope to tie around me?"[/talk]

Before Volgen enters he'll wait till the rest of the party arrives so that they can enter together.

[ooc]If Hela doesn't post this next go-round, we'll write her out, so don't delay entry into the room waiting for her.[/ooc]

The party gathers and cautiously considers this new, strange room. While Gratchl enters stealthily, Domasa's detect magic reveals that the glowing floor, ceiling, and walls have a magical aura of faint evocation [light]. The column of darkness is magical, too, with an aura of faint evocation [darkness].

After being lost in thought for a while, or is it fear of being stuck down here?, Hela moves into the room with the rest of the part to 2029.

Gratchl will stay along the wall and move to 1531 and look over the next set of doors waiting to see if anyone wants her to go into the darkness.

Straia looks around and steps into the room (to 1929), not sure what to expect and thinking how odd this room is.

Domasa will say [talk]I/m detecting evocation auras on this one. For the ones you might know it tends to deal with damage spells like fireball and such. they are faint auras but still this one might hurt a bit more.[/talk]floating too 1530

While they are speaking Volgen will slowly approach the pillar of darkness. His instinctive tendency to swing first and ask later gnawing at him from the inside. He holds off for a moment to see if Domasa and Straia get anywhere with their line of thought.

The entire party moves into the room. Domasa discovers that she cannot see anything in the darkness, even with her darkvision. Clearly, this is magical darkness.

Volgen takes a five foot step back and leans his axe against the wall. That will take him one round. If nothing happens and no one says anything, he draws a javelin from his quiver and takes aim at the center of the darkness. That will be round two. He's more or less stalling at that point to see if someone tells him not to. On the third round...he hurls the javelin into the darkness if no one stopped him.

Gratchl will inspect the doors she is standing next to, not touching them. After the javelin is thrown (if it is thrown that is), if nothing happens, and if she has not found anything dangerous with the doors she will open the door she is standing next to. That is unless some one objects.

Straia comments to any that will listen... [talk]Why attack the darkness? It does not attack us. I think we should step into it. Perhaps from within we will see the purpose for this room.[/talk] Straia comments further... [talk]Hold your attacks. I will step in to see what is there...why attack what we can't see?[/talk] Straia waits for the others ... and if they hold their attacks she will step into the darkness @ 1831. [talk]Just in case thou. If anyone has some rope, we could tie me off to it to pull me back. Just in case.[/talk]

Volgen, with his javelin raised, hesitates for a moment. And thinks about what Straia has said. Finally he says, [talk]Let me see if there is anything hiding within or if the darkness will consume the javelin.[/talk] Then his tone softens, [talk]Please. Forgive a Skandik and his "swing first ask later" mentality". But, I'd rather see if my javelin appears on the other side unscathed then to stay my hand and watch one of you step in and dissolve, wither, be torn to shreds, or simply vanish without trace.[/talk]

[talk]Allow me this one throw and then you may do as you wish.[/talk]
