Sunday 1 August 1280, Afternoon (Boink)

Gaven pokes along the chipped ceiling with his broken spear to make sure the passageway is safe. Most of it appears relatively solid, but near the door to the south, several more small chunks of stone fall from the ceiling when he taps at it. "Those moans, there may be people down here. We must investigate."

Duran also inspects the cracks and the nearby door. "Should we check behind this door first to make sure nothing comes out behind us?" asks Duran. "Then perhaps we can carefully check out the moaning." Duran hears nothing at the south door. However, looking up at the ceiling, he notes that the cracks appear to extend outward from beyond the south door, as if they originate on the other side of it. As he draws away from the portal, one more small chunk – about two inches in diameter – drops, striking him on the shoulder (OOC: no damage).

Oloc avoids getting underneath the crumbling ceiling. At Duran's query the mage responds, "I would be careful trying to open the door. That ceiling looks quite unstable. If you mean to open it, perhaps Gaven should probe a bit more to release any loose bits of rock."


OOC: Actions?

Time: 14:50
Current Torch Expires:15:10

There were two votes for opening the south door, but I didn't know if the new information revealed by your careful prodding and examination would alter that, so for now I've held off on you guys opening it. Just let me know what you want to do.


  1. Gaven - cleric

    Gaven will re-probe the ceiling closer to the door as Oloc suggests while saying, "I fear the door may be supporting the ceiling and if we open the door...crash! I say we check out the moaning."

  2. Oloc - Mage

    "I agree. Let's avoid this door for now."

    ooc: Oloc will head towards the door and the moaning sounds. He will be careful not to walk directly under the unstable ceiling. Once at the door he will listen to see if he can discern anything about the moans, i.e. do they sound like a human in distress or is there a more 'supernatural' element?

  3. OOC: The sound of the moaning is rather a fusion of the two elements you mention -- like supernatural voices (plural) in distress.

    1. OOC: I should say "supernatural human(oid?) voices (plural) in distress."

  4. Duran - Fighter

    Duran cast a wary eye towards the crumbling ceiling as he steps back from the door. Nodding in agreement with the others begins to move down the hall to the other door.
