Daddy is what is it teepee k. I heard about those things. She was in tears absolutely funds. Is scientists good evening everyone. We're talking about the situation that we find ourselves in shoutout to my sons. Go friend who it turns out. It's also listening to the podcast. Being very common bill. Geena pulled costs go bucket open. That's no way hopefully the recap. Gt's goto either Lucas who is trying to supper so it's just hope it's him or paul One two three. Lucas forty six. Paul is lucas believable. Lucas put down your venus schnitzel today. New sausage down the sauerkraut put down your grew year. But then the fondue do. Yeah and tell us about where we are. You don't need to get too much detail. But a quick recap for all readers My citizens swiss ship interview monday. Actioning to have an interview with the local councillors. Does he doesn't entire switzerland. No no. that's all that you don't want to citizens why do you. What does account degree eight from something else. You're rusty's cold deluca so you probably best So they recap so basically. We wondered on past the mirror room after having defeated all of our ganga's yes and in the you came into another room which was full of some interesting sort of scientific like contraptions with some kind of headsets with all sorts of weird wires and we thought was hess detestable and malvina and then after having talked to us history testy poked scuttled away and let a massive viable loss on this. Which did how many eight ten six damage or eleven. i think it was. Yeah so we will completely decimated at which point we basically all ran away back to this sort of barracks area with the exception of alissandria who tried to engage as detestable. And he's now running away as well also running away. Because now hefty testy pod has turned into. If i remember correctly some kind of weird ogm age type thing is. I was like with this. Great acts looks like some sort of frosty great and so now the puckering sessions a sort of hiding away in the office area where we found all the plans and then buck raft took it upon himself then to go back into the pool area and when he turned up in the central pillar thing where the lever is in the latter he then viewed going off towards the east obviously does appear to be a mind lab. That is perfectly some west. We point out that there was a lot of discussion about whether we really believe was a mind flare or not. They also missed out the fact that there was pretty bad. School boy. Errors made by everybody. Rest we didn't respite. Inhale we didn't do any of that stuff and we will just piled into the room in a very fireable friendly fashion. Yeah yep so one. Hundred and sixty is between us extended express and we have an inventory of where everybody's got left as a wise idea points. That kind of stuff would be useful to have a clear sense of there. I have four. Hit points redesign lots of messaging during the week between the players that they fund four hit points and one festival spell which is either a cure wins or could be a distant wisps for three d. sixpence damage. And that's what i thought. That's all i got. The table would about anna sandra. Then i mean what situation do you find yourself in alissandria funds himself in a situation of six eight points. She's used misty step. You're either talking with your action or tax of opportunity. I can do a. You've got up cutting action. I've cutting action. So i can do withdraw move with my speed. Thirty have ankle. Bucky on coup buggy is got nine hit points. No spells is country and he's got one right. What about paul. Says i have a twelve hit points and just s- covered. I have yes and moriches. I have to i. Level spells only had one. So i have to queue wounds Definitely frontline material. The question is the question is honestly i mean. We want everyone attacking as much as possible. Me yeah so. I find some way against this. Oga guy and these two Doppler gang by don't fancy my chances against the might fly so if log raft can come back in and closed the door. Then i think we might have a challenge against these to the question is do we get the opportunity for a five minute. Rest if we can hide away in these cubbyholes the very monday rafters as it were one for off into space. S i know. He's not johnny depp. Worry tone stress. He's taking split-second decision at this. Very second as to whether or not to jump off the pillow and into the water as sessions. What about you things. Look we'll sessions is in the very unusual situation that he's on twelve points that hasn't taken damage in some times. I took go out from in battery code. That i have one. I love spell left. You lucky posit. Lookie but the thing by chuffed with is i still have to uses of my channel divinity and the cloak of shadows out very very appealing not channel divinity. No doesn't doesn't do healing it. Does cloak shadows sneaky way type thing. That's sneaky away type thing l. Bug off to so jealous. Let's pick things up with the ready action of this mind. Flyer waiting somebody. Did he ever next action. Oh why we ran out on this of course way to the pillar in the middle of this room flames did so it raised its arm and pointing at because it had been waiting for one of you to come running out and as soon as you ran into its field of view it is firing off the spell that had decided that it would fire anyone that came up. Is he really think outdoor. I mean many small. Hobart a black beam of innovating energy springs from the finger towards. I've got to make world safe. i can hit grown. And what's hitting arm kloss eighteen plus hit and so you warsaw to might be my some protection it is a net chromatic effect and on a hit you only now deal hof damage with any weapon attack that uses strength until the end of the spell you get to make a constitution saving throw at the end of each of your turns but you are affected for the moment. Saudi weedy moving. Yeah you're waiting now. He would've decision to make your poised to squares of movement. Left the edge of this platform. What would you like to do with the remaining movement that you have. I'm going to pretend that he's beam has basically finish me off on. I'm going to sort of hollywood style Full of water into the water. Can you make a deception check. Please deception plus zero mike. Okay and that was me. Rony minds practice practice. Roller was it doesn't mean his surreal. Okay papa six sixteen okay. Let's see okay. Well okay and you jump off. The edge is that it is that all you can do. That's no movement for offers it. Okay yeah okay so more squares movement. So i'm swimming. Oh okay your mind. The swimming the clock in the water below to that. So i am now out of vision on highly beyond your about fifteen feet below the level of the. Come up on honesty stabilized. Because you've just done a daffy. Duck death avenue. Okay so you face your own death basically is that it yes. False thank came. The next in devoid is sessions epa. What would you want to well now. That uncle bucky down. I'm wondering with my writing thinking that. All of the doors between burp parker and sessions and the mirrored room and the room that hefty dipoto. Whoever is who's and all of that they're all closed. Yeah yeah. I think that currently open. I close the final dull. I'm that i lost move. I closed the one in the corridor. The learn how anybody have to open the doors as she comes. This is what i'm trying to establish is not we all come up yet but i just want to make sure you might want to know that before you act so the because i remember sandra. She opened the first door coming out with the big room and then she could not the second one. That's the toll from where sondra currently is into the room with mirrors is definitely climb. Yeah yeah and the room that leads off. The main corridor towards the mirrored room is close or not the door in between the mirrored room and the anti-chambers. Now this none of this is making any sense. now it's not too close doors. Saunder psychosis interrupted. You just remind me about the room. Yeah yeah absolutely with the ladder. Up is a pillar. So it's solid and at the top is zeev. That's right and the pathway from the door to the pillai is a bridge. Said there's a ten foot wide of in the centre. Yeah rising two point ten feet above the top of the water. So you're ten feet down uncle buggy and a stone platform fifty feet above the floor of the room and therefore ten feet above the water because it's forty feet of water. Yes leads to a locked door. I'm saying that's a platform. Therefore it's not a solid adjustment of stone the tool you can be underneath it in the water be underneath. It's a diving board. Basically yeah but it stone and it's built out and just for clarity the mind flays at what level the mind flare is at the same level as the door the platform in the top of the pillar all ten feet above the water level to creatures with the mind flair. They like old purply. Blue skinned white head to the veil fin creatures in light black clothing carrying simitis with bows live. They're awesome whilst graham i. I'm thinking i might jump into. the water. is that is attack of opportunity. Always ready to action rather than yeah. Do you think stale guy where it depends if they coming into the water also. Yeah that's what it basically boils down to. We don't know the ounce to that. My theory is there waiting that because they can't come across the water and that lever moves this walkway round to where they are so they can walk across either. Could do that. That's a theory. I thought it was bracing and lowering the water. That's all and could be eat them. What do you think graham. And i don't want to be on two sides. Do i still. Don't get the mechanism of this water. Thing must be missing something. You and me both i mean going does seem like the prudent course run away. I think that's probably though. I two guys but can we can. We will do that. Move move. I can get in so wear ankle. Buggies yet move move. I can get to the water. Parkas next baucus quicker head. They're ready action is now or never snake movies. I can be in the water this round next round swim to the other chamber way we can try and we lose all a finishing off these to be could swim through the water to the other side. Take five minute rest sisley fall and then come back. Yeah but you didn't get yourself by then. But i get with my key point spun. You do the rest of points. Let's see you come back by yourself. I think i'm moving into the water sessions on. His legs is going to walk down. The corridor take hard left rundown than digital platform and camping. Swear he's okay pocket if you're going to run away then i've really got no option. I've i know you don't buy can move out of the office. Room opened the door to buckle. Yup that's your free interaction with an object to a cure wounds on purple yucky One eight plus two is ten points of healing on burble while sir nice and then move up to just before the dole. You're at the base of the little passageway that leads up to the rim of the water in it. Yeah you've basically forfeited a move by during that. Yes yes yes for you purple. Because the next i'm guessing the alissandria that crew. They can't move up to me and do something and so the next round. Don't i don't know where we are. Then our change would do is come into the same room as you bubble. I close the door and to open it but the can decide what you want so that that makes sense. why knows. if they're out in the corridor we still have to run across the corridor. They'll see us. I don't think they're going to get into that corridor in the next round possible yet. But i'll buy those doors closed. One of them is one of the maze. Second doors closed. I think but the first stories. I pin. They've kayla sandra then move. I think they bit. She might want to move. Tonight's beer by the way is cloud water pale delicious. Hazy chain rather nice mixed with the punches puck makes what sorry tonga's fuck the uncle little funding top sparking double filtered water resupplied. Johnny with big splash up. Just it's free slayings. Turn the tap on comes up. so how. Many of these canisters have you know naked flames in the kitchen to have rather a lot four package times. I mean it might be the wrong move. But i'm i'm happy with that move. I think you may need that. He'll so we move on. I think i can. But i wouldn't. I wouldn't come in here. I would go back to where you were. Okay and then they might. They might see you this some spell. They have to move move so they wouldn't be quite like the idea. Parker babbel having this conversation in the doorway. Yeah okay so parker you've he'll purple on the original thing which is heading on your way out but no birth. Be happily okay. Well that was going to pay jump in the water dive in the water gracefully. Yes leaving just park behind in kind of moving onto alissandria. It is your turn you. There's a door. The next u the creature that was has detested seems to be kind of buser. King crazed awkward giant and mas. Something that looks like mazda innovate. You suspect really isn't is ena is queuing up behind him. But it is your turn. I'm going to interact with the object some going to open the door. I'm gonna take the disengage cutting action. So i can move without attack of up to twenty from yup from either of them and then i'm going to move to the door to door now. My question is these beds. Yes what about if. I was to move small. Time for kip. High-speed i'm gonna long wrist unridable rest yet hide under a bed. That described as comfortable beds sandra. I'm going to receive means a divan. Divan whatever it is right but whatever they have legs. They're not just like a kind of pallet on the floor and like a kind of wheaty that'll bunk day. Aw show with bedding has like a box. I've backpedaling off the because that incredibly cruel have one of those draws that slides out and then you kind of open that in this full of stuff front. That would comfortable tells me bedding including potentially like spread and so yes. Yeah i'm being super nicer you are are you begins to make compensate for the fact that i'm everywhere else. Yeah i'm going to dive under the bed. Which is up against the wall. Yes and i've got a stealth of nine. So i'm going to what i'm hoping on before you set upon this course of action for like the third time that daw between the room you're in and the corridor is close is closed icon an icon to open it right. Because i've already opened one door be can move tibbets. So if he's got a spell. I'm not thinking about the mechanics of opening or closing the door. I thinking about the significance of a closed door. Okay let's find a way to minute if sorry if yes if it's a closed door it's likely that they're going to search excite to stand by the wall they can't attack me anyway saintly unless they post bells spells unless but even then they probably can't get a line on you for business poeple. They can't take taxable unity against it's not they can't tack here if they can up to you. They can still attack you but there could have come. They move move. He shaw well. It's it's seventy is simply put away unless it got an amazing movement slot seventy thirty to the door. Thirty five forty. That needed move a forty to be able to get get to you. I fifteen twenty twenty twenty five thirty pm. Police there enjoying this readers to there yet. The bavarian might be able to move out fast. Just yes barbarians me false okay so you. That's a good point guard. Could you close the door of the mirror. Severity directed rhody interacted with an action. However that's what you'd have an opposed drinks test right so you could hold try and hold the door close. Certainly who can open the door when you can run by through. You're just slowing them down. So he's gonna use his action to try to the door or not be to move right up to the other dole in the hope that that come they have to move. Move to get t. Don't get attacked sensually. can attack you. Yeah i think that's probably the thing. I'm gonna move up to that. I'm not saying that's the wrong thing to do. But he did. Seven is fireable right so But he did it as a different current. He's morphed into something else now here. We can't do that unhealthy boundaries. The other thought that causes is thirty for them to get to this. Assuming they've gotta move a thirty and not not greater allegra hammerstein fat. If you're like in this line inside the room there's no line at target to you. Yeah but then they can move in and just block you in. okay. I think so i think. Tha game micro. Chess has thus. I think that's enough on making a split-second decision about what to do. I'm getting to the next person to act is the orc and the or casco that kind of movement you are very wise to move those extra squares can get to one square away from you and i saw and then it goes on and it turns back into statistics behind it you can hit mas ena padding up and she appears in the doorway behind sti. Yes but can't yeah and we go on to the swimming pool. And it's uncle buggy on nineteen brie brie by graft he's going to start swimming as fast as little x. I mean there's a land running down the side of this column which you can pull your away down and then still under water. You have to swim along a passageway role. I'm going to do that. Came through so you can okay onto the map. So we'll just let the abstract for napa growth but you're currently heading towards the off the waterfield off with a barrel floating in it. The next creature to act is the mind flair but nobody can see the mind of the mindfloness house right now. Okay so we will draw a veil over there and we move on to sessions. Is action your presidio. You treading water wind or on the bottom. You'll put yourself down to the bottom of doing the same thing as boogie. Am heading his farsighted. Abstract that as well. I'm gonna leave you off the park. Your action did sandra see me. No right now. The door is closed. Then i will move. I assume that bubble didn't close the door. that'd be very cruel. So i move straight through it. Jump off into the water and you'll have to tell us how you how far we get through the water but you're swimming down right so i'm gonna side trail of bubbles being left behind towards the floor of the rim and you can kind of make a bit of progress and we'll leave it at that okay but on the other hand. Do you want to follow the others. Yes we can remove you from the map we can pick up what happens to you. Later into the rotating knives. Sorry passageway blocked corridor. Yes ram into the gulf blah through the one way valve and asandra. Your wall in a tight spot interact with an object opened the door. Yes i can make it to the water next parka with a move move and also take a dash sanctions could even go further to say. You're running for it and you're jumping into the water. One final point of clarity for me you jumping into the water as soon as you run into the room set off the side of the platform yet. So you'll know risking a glimpse of of the passage going in there. I can make you to park. And then i've got an entire dash action. You think that we can draw a veil over the rest of proceedings. you are undisturbed as you. Swim along the passageway You can allow yourself stuff float up in the sharp in it and reached the rope ladder. Just going to open up the other map right here. We are the top of the shaft in the room next to the roadway your attacked by weird invisible creatures next to the room where cuthbert left the eastwind spearing no into the ground. What you wanna do well allison is going to look at the say. Shall we wake us or joint to rest up and come back and finish these fucking off. Because i think we can is related to the trump door. No bug graft. Can you give me an intelligence check. Please is in the base of insulation than you. Very subplot by well. We'll see team okay. Now you've had a moment to reflect graft the odd elfin creatures that were with the mind flyer a little detail the you picks up as you were escaping but has now surfaced in your mind and you're reflecting upon it is that they're boots were caked in some kind of weird yellow powdery deposit mode yellow mode so ocana cake itself something like that. Yeah let me made romi funeral all mustard curry powder tested powder custom. Patter wouldn't be an engineering. The net krawczyk environment was the away. Hot warm or anything. They don't feel kind of volcanic area. There are no active volcanoes that you know of not even the newell mountains. So what's the deal climbing up the wall to remind me especially something. I think it's thirty five feet. And he's a writer it theory. We could rest up in this room and keep an eye on the water and have plenty of warning if we need to the plan to go back down. It does ankle buggy happening recollection of how he got into the mirror. Durham i'm blacked-out with the faa both the market and then i woke up in this tied up. Yeah we'll significance of the tough choice. Mike hinting that now. Can anybody think well that is. We need to serve minds. Something that happened six months ago. That might have some significance to one of those blue elemental. Things is not to be worried about or is that just basically. We could just peer into that room and check. Yeah just basically. I'm assuming that you're not just muddling in this chamber. Well we're keeping an eye on the water behind this. But i think it would be order view not to head ground at least out the door into the other room to make sure there's nothing on me. There's no sound of anything moving around or anything like that. I sure lowest short rest isn't really going to do very much is a the hit points bank. That's quite important. I think if we're gonna long rest we might. We might as well go and visit somewhere in town and see some the story points. We're supposed to begin to see elegant points. Then these people might get away but they may be another way as well that we don't know about but they might as well might in the alert shoes savings another way Maybe police luke suggested in the passageway rotates round to the other option. Yeah you didn't have anywhere near enough time. Exact scrutinize the setup of that room. What i would say is there was nothing immediately. Obvious about like that as in track marks around the wall. Something precisely nothing that said. That's definitely what the cases but there. There's also something that said absolutely ruled it out. Either at sandra have any idea about this goose considering local sondra can you give me an intelligence check please getting twelve. Nothing springs to mind about that. Yellow substance might have been. Okay i need about twenty seven. We do that fast. Or shoot Like graham saying on some of the league's we supposed to be getting to the elegance of kind of reminding you hack especially becoming with me kick out and seattle golsen. I think we came here to cow. Who is trying to kill us. Yes but we know he's trying to get us little less games. Yeah but they might catch. Seem like the end of level boss. It seems a bit. I don't think that did seem like the end of level boss really. Yeah i mean do you mean the mine flair. The you didn't think that was the end of level boss territory. We mesic gaming very strongly early in the story chapter to be known of us. We've got loads of stuff we've got to be doing here. I think the only you can send a baby girl way and it's been too long rest somewhere else. They could leave through the way. We've just left exactly. That's what i'm suggesting to take a short rest here then. Once we show rested we'd take a view on what we do. A short rest went back to go back down there. I'm thinking we do along west here. That the reason why i want to say first of all we go that plans. I'm thinking maybe finish them off. It also gives us the opportunity to properly ex- explore and search place which we didn't do and all that information that we gather that will be useful when we meet up with us. That's what we want to find out. Who are these people. Why did they can study those notes. Why would they shoot. That's one of the things we can do. They'll coaches have yes notes. We got from the office but we still need to explore and search the whole area. Where strange equipment was we show. We'll be fighting the mind. Forget about down. We'll be watching the mine. Fach we do that. We can go and see if that door is getting still going to be just standing. There is actually gonna peered once we triggered all sorts of other things that my close up again. Now we've got away so we're going to take a long rest. If we take the adding house we might be better off resting in the office room. We all the cells. We want to make sure by now. Why not rest here. I only need four hours to do four hours nine. The other four a great anything on the notes mike. The i stole from the office. We're going three them. Well now yes there is some. I think it's again. will i keep saying. This is my favorite phrase but we'll abstract. It's a little you think i along. Let's just talk about this. Start with the short rest for the hit. Points this shortlist. How much time do we get to talk. The final voting three three precisely pecan can roll three dice. Maybe didn't ask it eight. Plus that's pooling twelve thirty six singing as well what we do this by the way to get an extra six per head is wow really yup. Prosthetic constitution yeah lovely. Six and seven is the teams love. Twenty one good hang on an minus three six got to leave far twenty. Three of wright fifty minutes uncle buggy costing your is very briefly with these papers. You think that radio understanding what was in the papers is probably beyond do and the sondra if your wall. I'm having look. Yeah but adam. Sander is a local You recognize an a very quick glance. It looks like a lot of effort is being put into make to sort of redacting or deliberately not using specific names but it looks like planning documents around a scheme to effectively abduct and then murder kidnap whatever people in positions of influence and replace them with douglas your senses that you probably need somebody who really knew what they would. The authorities for want of a better word might be the to actually act on this. Your guess would be that that might actually attract some kind of financial reward or good investigating. These things. yourselves is going to take longer than fifteen minutes. It's going to take priority few hours to sift through but your quick scan. Your sense is that this looks like dynamite. In the right hands yeah. Is there any information that can help us in our fight with them. Give me an intelligence check. I certainly can if you specifically apply yourself to that question ten. You've rifled through the papers trying to work out if you can put together any kind of useful information about what's going on you come up short anybody else. What did we think liberalist option which think purple taking through you. Think that actually the papers if you were to burn them. Assemble them in a particular way and draw lines but it would make a map of the of the cosmos. Excellent that you could sell. Perhaps her as much as one silver piece mary out with the ovary. We still looking that rat. Yeah so i let. Sandra rose a nineteen k alissandria where you skim through them. Let me see now. I think it would be reasonable for you to be able to infer from going through these papers that a there were not that many gang in the gang right. Second thing is there is a figure referred to as t all the way through seems to be the boss and you think that there is something going on whereby this giant plan that it looks like they've been distracted from the plan. Relatively recently at the t had changed their emphasis of their operations quite recently to us. I mean that's what that's what you get okay. And is there any information in there about these weird machines that we saw that guy attached to. Yes there maybe. The occasional oblique reference to whether or not tease apparatus may bring other benefits. If the right people were captured. So some kind of mind. Extractor roy anymore is two hours. I'm going to take taking along. Rest now okay. And you're setting yourselves up to watch the choose my words very carefully. But you're spending your time watching the shaft. Yes okay a half an hour into your long rest yes specifically who is where and who is watching the shaft. And how are they doing. So and i need you to be very specific. I wash show. How are you watching it. Have we felt is a amirah. I will sit on the north side. crouch down low. Yep such a feast tools which is go to mirror on mental mental. Handle right. i use that. Can you give me a perception. Chick sistine on the seventeenth there at the side of the thing about half an hour in you. Hear a splash. Somebody trying to perhaps be quiet on failing to be as quiet as they want to be. It's thirty five feet down and the dog to the surface of the water mirror or no mirror. It's a difficult one. It's beyond the range of your dark vision. You think you can count Ripple memorial kind of disturbance in the city of reflective patent of the water down in the darkness. A little bit and a little bit of a splash. Well i typically else and how qua really are wave of them. You wave emphatically the other hand. Signals had signals pointing. Let's go around the table. everybody have an accident. Each starting with sessions ep. I'm going to move myself to just out onto the platform. Oh yes stepping away from the rim. Yep yep gonna ready and action to toll the dead if i am. Eve agreeably appears within my m site bubble. How i'm going to be silent. Let's give my spells back. But i haven't spoken to line. The candidate has identified. Who's come out. Yeah absolutely no idea could be a fish. Yeah right well. I do have daylight left over killer names because well. We don't want to allow them to the yet. Let's be. I'll sit and do nothing. Asandra going to ready and action to move up and engage a perceived enemy can move on and then a an attack. Anybody anybody anybody. Russian owing case. Well i'm gonna do is. I'm going to move up next to me. A self check twenty-five second k. And then you'll readying uncle buggy just almost often but to the good old days of dozing off. Right i am. I didn't know what to do. I'm worried about another fireball. So what's the optimal distancing. Were run in you. Gotta make a split-second decision. Abbas tell me whether or not you're being caught will are moving to the western edge of the room trying to be caught to cleaner and i'm readying ingham action to attack. Anything that comes with my tried to throw dice. Deepest shaft the ps snuck into that so I have hamilton through my head. You talk you be back pocket. Yes okay can you give me a perception check. Three token my hair little bit more splashing a movement below you. I do have sixty foot vision. Yes in that case. I think even without a decent perception check there was something briefly breaking the surface of the water. And the foot of the rope matter. Yeah the froze and then immersed itself again. Okay either a flash of light from the mirror or a bit of sound from where you are up in the room or something has been picked up. That was your sense okay. I will make hand signals to indicate. They went back down again under the water. Yeah okay which one do next guys. Five minutes goes by ten minutes goes by another sound. I think we should just continue taking rest. Okay well you are undisturbed for the remainder of your rest. Long rest breath. You're not sure what happened but potentially something. What did have a bit of a look noticed that you are still there or somebody was still there in shied away again. Something up and ask him again or it could have been a fish. We move onto the next day. Which is the twenty first fumbling with still in from battery in fumble. When was the day the end of february when the roi was supposed to align and something myspace that happened. Today is the twenty first of february your inspection of the story told you that the next conjunction that was it was during a festival. Misrule misrule is a four day. Festival sits at the end of fumbling right right and on the third day of misrule there is a conjunction between the planets genius and uterus. That's what the jury told you when you wind on and then your sense was to keep winding the handle to the next one. You will get to be there all week and yet so something is going to happen on that right okay so we got a few days until then you have precisely ten days until then right anyway.

Okay keeping a distance of asandra. Yes you didn't trust. I trust that but she is a probe and if there's a fireball. I don't want to be in the same radius. I you emerge you swim along all you surfacing. I'm suggesting before we get onto. Just they let me go and be the pro busy. Oh come back. I'm gonna take swim around.

It's a dark passageway receding off to the west. It's quite rough hewn and it's you can't see anything in there okay. I will continue to climb the door in the southern wall off the rim. The one that's the end of the little causeway leading into the main area you had your recent excitements is open. Only open by a couple of inches. I will still make my way up to.

Yeah yeah well you know about the pit traps in the main room. Yeah we know. There's apparatus complex. You might wanna grab a couple of pieces of it to take it to somebody who might know what they were doing. It's too big to move the whole thing. It looks like there's also the room to the eastbound. The pitra spent a little bit time. Investing those doors pretend doors okay so eliane. All of the bedrooms are pretty much uninteresting. They seem to have every type of clothing the basically their cost you and changing rooms clearly the doppler gangs were using a quick change and you can kind of see how one of the very quickly cobbled together a cuff but like costume the planning room. It's called the rim of tables in it where just defeated the bias. Well was it has. Is it really talk that you think you've basically taken everything value and interest from that room now. The rim with the apparatus in it the big throne room. That apparatus is too big move put in a holding. It's too big firm can get it through the opening of the bag of holding otherwise.

You have to be able to get through the and so you think it's something to do with. They seem to be gems. That look like they're some sort of storage or battery device. They rest on plinths. That are connected by snaking cables that run to this head thing. St was wearing a quite sure how that works. You thought the best thing to do might be to find somebody who knows what they're talking about and get them down here. It's not like you're in the middle of nowhere. Can we sketch it. Yeah you can take the sketches of what you can find and you could take a couple of pieces samples of the equipment. Yeah you find at the back of the throne a secret door that sits just to the side of the throne an opening it reveals a secret chamber it is filled with very ostentatious accessories and the little layer or secret remove a very vain. Shallow person And it turns out to be paul's house. Oh there's bed a wardrobe. There's a desk. There's a small table. The walls of covid enrich red velvet curtains the turn out not to be traps. There is a strange rug on the floor. Where the patents. Keep changing as you look at it. There was a large mirror in one corner. That rug you think is magical much more than it's doing. There's a chest when you search which of course you do and don't forget to do He has got a k- on. I wouldn't put it both. He has got a key on him which opens the chest in that room when he sort of run through all of its forms all of this equipment all the stuff that he was sort of somehow subsumed into his forms. What kind of crashes out of him. There's a plus one frost greater ex. He has a plus to ring of protection who he has a warned of cure. Moderate wounds with happy stick written down the side and he has a key and the key opens the chest in his room. Which more well no not really. It's got lots of very fine clothing and about five hundred gold pieces worth of jewelry. The only other thing that you find tucked away in the corner is a there's a scroll of dominate person. And there's a scroll with a little message on it and the message reads. I have a task for you. Meet me at the sewer junction beneath the cold forge. And i will give you the details. There are some troublesome small mines that must be removed and the document is signed with that same spiraling tentacle symbol. That is on. This guy's forehead was on the belt.
