Sunday 1 August 1280, Afternoon (Scratches)

Oloc scans the room for anything other items or objects of note. The mage doesn't dare suggest disturbing the sepulcher.

Duran watches the door while the others search the room. As he waits he feeds Karnak a bit to eat as the bird rest on his shoulder. .

Looking closely at the tomb, Oloc notes scratch marks along the edge of the lid, as if someone or something tried to lift the lid off an failed. Judging from the size and spread of the marks, they were made by hands (four fingers and opposing thumb) of roughly human size.

Apart from this there is nothing to be seen in the room. The lid of the sepulcher is tightly sealed and the seal – which appears to be made of lead – is entirely intact.

Oloc allows Gaven to pay respect to the Abbot before suggesting heading back to the north.

Gaven quickly pays his respects to the Abbot and motions everyone to leave. Once they are all out, he closes the door.

Gaven sniffs at the cool air to try to determine if it smells like the surface or something else. The air has a very faintly unpleasant smell, almost imperceptible, but reminiscent of an open grave. Slight as it is, Gaven is certain the odor is not suggestive of the surface. The cleric therefore suggests the party follow the cool air.

Blue arrow indicates party location.

Following the cool air, the party marches east, then north, joining up with the hallway leading north from the earlier mass burial chamber. The way north extends some thirty feet, then ends in a closed door.

The door bears an inscription carved in the wood: "May Those Who Lie Here Know Peace."

  1. Gaven - cleric

    Gaven relays what he smells to the other. At the door he remarks, "I have an ill feeling about what lies behind this door. If we plan on opening, be prepared for the worst."

    OOC: Are we going through the door?

  2. Oloc - Mage

    Oloc frowns at the smell and the inscription. "I have a bad feeling about this," he says. I think I would prefer to head back to the other passage and see what lies in that direction. What say you?"

    ooc: I think we should check out the other northern passage first.

  3. Duran - Fighter

    Duran feels uneasy as well and nods in agreement with Oloc.

    OOC: Lets check out the other northern passage first before heading inside
