[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!

Hela heeds Volgen warning and swaps places with him. She then readies for a target, obviously scared.

[ooc]I see that now. It is missing from your list in TOS+, thus, my confusion. I will correct Hela's status in the next validation and fix my version of your sheet.[/ooc]

Volgen suggests that he and Hela switch places. Hela complies, frightened but ready to attack.

Gratchl cannot see the light, but she can hear her friends talking, so she manages to find her way into the column of light.

Domasa demands an answer from the voice, also readying to attack.

Inside the column of light, it is not clear if the slavering, almost demonic voice is answering Domasa or just continuing its monologue, but it whispers [talk]...if you can ssolve a ssimple riddle for me. 'Runnerss, walkerss, sstomperss, sstalkerss, ssometimess creeperss, rarely ssleeperrss.' What are they?[/talk]

Outside the column of light, Straia cowers in the darkness. The sound of the heavy footsteps grows louder.

Gratchl is glad to be back in the light for the first time in a long time. She looks about, not wanting to say anything she puts her free hand over her mouth.

Volgen looks thoroughly stumped at the riddle. He shrugs grimly and readies his weapon hoping whatever this trap is he can brute force his way out. He says to Domasa, [talk]Might as well give it your answer to see if it accepts it.[/talk]

As the party discusses their answer to the riddle, Straia yells out, [yell]Who are you and why do you hide in this darkness?[/yell] She receives no answer.

Finally, Domasa answers the riddle, saying calmly, [talk]The Answer to your Riddle is shoes.[/talk]

The darkness disappears and the room returns to a normal condition with rough stone walls and several torches illuminating it. The doors also unlock. Near the south door, everyone catches a glimpse of a small imp-like creature, who teleports away before you can act. He does, however, leave behind a pair of boots.

Volgen growls disgruntled. He lowers his guard slightly and looks about the room before looking at the boots and walk towards them to stand next to Straia looking down at them, all the while he walks towards her he his shaking his head in frustration. THINKING: Shoes?! By Mjolnir! If only I could have gotten my hands around that little beasty's neck!

Starting at the doors at 1531 & 1532 Gratchl will look and listen at each set (going down and then to the other set across the way). After looking at each set she will go show some interest in the boots.

Straia examines the boots (without touching them) and finds them to be quite well made.

Volgen growls and mutters in anger.

Domasa detects magic and finds that the boots have an aura of faint transmutation.

Gratchl finds the doors to be unlocked and, apparently, untrapped. She hears nothing on the other side.

Volgen suggests continuing on, his opinion is to go through the right doors, the ones at square 1531 (right being based from when they first entered the doors. If asked why he simply says[talk]You go right you never go wrong.[/talk]

First the boots are there and then they are gone again[talk]THey have a faint transmutation aura on them. i have them in my bag till this riddle is over and we can find out what magic it might be for them for we can give them to party members who could use them best if that is ok with the rest. If not i would be a guinea Pig and put them on randomly.[/talk]Domasa again floating close behind Gratchl

[talk]Domasa is correct. I think it would be best to get thru this maze of riddles before testing our newly found items, and I like Volgen suggestion, "Right has always been right for me.[/talk] Straia lines up behind Volgen, ready to move thru the door.
