Sunday 1 August 1280, Late Afternoon (Items Out of Place)

Duran stands watch in the hall while the others investigate the store room.

Oloc grabs the torches and place them in his pack.

Upon seeing the vials he comments to Gaven, "More gifts of the Light?"

"A gift from the Light," the cleric confirms. Gaven takes the holy water and the golden liquid and one of the other liquids. He gives one vial to Oloc and Duran, "For safe keeping. We will question Abbot Cuthbert. Perhaps he'll know what these are. I do not recognize them."

Gaven briefly prays to thank the Light.

Oloc pokes around the ancient storeroom trying to find anything of interest or value. He uncovers a small cloth bag, concealed behind a pile of broken jars. Within the dusty pouch is a moderate sized purple gem, probably worth about 200 gp.

What the gem is doing here is anyone's guess. It has no religious significance as far as Gaven can tell. And hidden away in a storage room, it is decidedly not part of anyone's burial attire.

Once done in this room, Oloc suggests investigating the door to the north.

Gaven agrees: "Let us continue north."

As the party marches north, Gaven continues to check the western wall for secret doors, and Duran keeps an eye out for the missing skeletons.

The wall heading north is just as solid and uniform as it was to the south.

Additionally, Duran detects no movement, skeletal or otherwise.

The air in the corridor gets cooler once more the farther north you go.

Arriving at the door in the east wall, you note that the tunnel continues on, branching to the west and also east where it turns north once more.

The door is reinforced by iron bands that are slightly rusted. At about eye level there is a small iron plate, in which is engraved a shield with a crossed mace and hammer. The door is unlocked, and opens easily with a push on the iron handle.

Inside you see a 20' x 30' tomb, with another stone sepulcher similar to those you saw before for James and Edith.

The inscription on this one can also be read from the doorway. It says:

The room is particularly clean. From the doorway you see no dust, no debris. Duran, however, spies what appears to be a tiny piece of litter – perhaps parchment? – sticking out from behind the sepulcher.


OOC: Actions?

Time: 16:35
Current Torch Expires:17:10


  1. Duran - Fighter

    OOC: Duran will carefully examine the paper before trying to remove and then he will show it to the others.

  2. Gaven - cleric

    Will examine the room to determine if there are any defects in the room, wondering why this room is cleaner than the others.

  3. Oloc - Mage

    Oloc, still beaming after discovering the large gem, helps Gaven investigate the chamber. He will offer to help decipher the parchment if necessary.
