Sunday 1 August 1280, Late Afternoon (Taking the Book and Moving On)

Filbert lets out a low whistle. "That's a pretty book – and I know a thing or two about fine objects. Odd that it would be in such good shape unlike everything else down here. Rust on the candelabra, mildew stains on the wood of the lectern... I'm not sure how it's possible, but that book is beautiful."

Oloc nods his head at Filbert's comments. "Odd indeed. My guess is this book is some holy relic not subject to the effects of time."

The Mage looks at Gaven. "Should we leave this holy book here, given that we know evil has come to these crypts? Part of me thinks we should take the book, but I will of course defer to your judgement in such matters."

Having little interest in books Duran continues to stand watch waiting to move on.

Gaven agrees with Oloc saying, "I think it best we bring this to Abbot Cuthbert for safe keeping until we can cleanse the temple."

Gaven carefully wraps the book in his cloak and asks that Oloc carry it. He does not want the book anywhere near the rottblood covered spearhead in his pack.

Gaven says, "I suggest we search south."

Oloc places the book in his pack and nods as Gaven suggests heading south.

Duran also nods in agreement to head south.

Oloc lights another torch as the party leaves the candle-lit alcove.

Moving south, you pass the door in the east wall of the corridor. It is a perfectly ordinary wooden door with no special markings. You hear no noise emanating from beyond it as you go past.

Eventually the corridor bends west, linking up with the first burial chamber you entered after descending from the chapel above.


OOC: Actions?

Time: 16:10
Current Torch Expires:17:10


  1. Oloc - Mage

    "Shall we try the door here and then work our way to the north?"

    ooc: I suggest opening the door south of the lectern alcove.

  2. Duran - Fighter

    Duran agrees to search behind the wooden door before heading north again.

  3. Gaven - cleric

    Gaven examines the map and points out the empty area between their corridor and the next corridor over, "Let's check the western wall for secret passages."

    Gaven will feel along the wall for any inconsistencies and will knock periodically to listen for hollow spaces as they approach the door.
