Kay's Mini adventure
Kay and Aerial charge into the smoke, only to find they can't see anything. The
blackness is so heavy and thick, that you cannot see your hand 1 inch in front
of your face.
Kay will head towards a noise she's heard Hopeing she'll snag 'em before they finish their vanishing act.
:( In-between cursing at the cultists and hollering for Arilyn, she asks
Aerial, "How about magic-up some wind, or can you do that?"
"I wish I could bring up some wind since I was the one that caused this my
spell fizzled out."Aerial Whispered to Kay.
Not wanting to give up on her bud without a fight, and knowing the mighty
Gareth shouldn't have any problems dealing with the wet worm, Kay heads
towards the sound of running feet, obviously those pesky priests.
Aerial curious at the noise it might be Arilyn goes toward the wood striking
the stone Cautiously.
Kay breaks free of the smoke as she luckily enters a doorway.
In front of you, a long, wide hallway narrows toward the far
end. 2 tall hideous statues of alien looking humanoids stand along each side
wall, staring with dull, fishlike eyes.
The hall is dimly lit by a bank of black candles atop a low altar positioned
5' in front of the north wall. At the opposite end, you can just make out a door,
which shuts as you glance in that direction. behind you, is still smoke.
Before continuing, Kay stops, pulls out a copper coin and tosses it past the
statues, if they zap it (Or whatever nasty), she'll reconsider her actions,
but if nothing happens, she'll make her way past the statues and through
that door that just shut. She's still has in her bow in hand, and is more
than ready to stick a few arrows into the arses of those pesky priests!
Kay tosses towards the statues and nothing happens. Moving towards the door, she
listens cautiously, but hearing nothing, she opens the door.
She finds herself in a blackened room. The walls, floor, tapestries, and
furniture is all black. A table in the center has been turned upside down and is
missing a tableleg. There are chairs scattered around near the walls. The room
is empty of any person as far as you can tell.
Completely forgetting about what's-her-face for a second (What happened to
Aerial?) , A frantic Kay searches the room..Are there any other doors?
Anything behind the tapestries? If nothing can be found, she'll leave the
room to see what Aerial is up to.(And pick up her coin along the way)
For the statues, she'll poke at the eyes, pull on the arms and legs, and
whatever she can, these evil guys always have levers or buttons to open
secret doors and such.
Upon the altar, is a book written in some unknown language. Throughout
the pages it is open to, is an arcane, evil looking symbol.
Nothing happens when Kay pokes at the statues. As she picks up the book, she is
instantly knocked unconscious by an incredible force of evil washing over and
Dreams of chanting men in black robes, and dancing skulls dance through her
Meanwhile, Arilyn finds herself floating towards the smoke in what she determines
is a hold person, and levitate spell combined. She is able to see, hear,
smell, and feel, but she is unable to move, or fight back against her
predicament. Fear and anger worm thier way into her heart, being the
sort of maiden who hates being 'made' to do anything she doesnt wish,
but anticipation also at what is to come. You float into the smoke, and
your senses get confused. You see nothing but total blackness. Your
logical mind tells you you are within the smoky wall, but you dont have
any difficulty breathing, nor do you taste or smell smoke or fire. You
feel someone take your hand, and roughly pull you ahead further into the
smoke. You go through a doorway, In front of you, a long, wide hallway
narrows toward the far end. 2 tall hideous statues of alien looking
humanoids stand along each side wall, staring with dull, fishlike eyes.
The hall is dimly lit by a bank of black candles atop a low altar
5' in front of the north wall. At the opposite end, you can just make
out a door. Pulling you down the hallway, is the head priest from
earlier. He pauses at the altar, and on the floor you can see an
unconscious Kay lying crumpled on the floor, an evil looking book under
her opened hand. The priests laughs evilly, an awful sound that sends
chills up your spine. Kay looks dead, you see no sign of breathe or
movement. The priest snaps his fingers in the direction of Kay's body,
and first she, then the book she is holding rise into the air. Floating
down the hallway past the hideous statues, and through the door, you
enter the a room all in black. The priest notes the table in the middle
of the floor, upside down with a table leg missing, and curses under his
breathe in common. Pulling chains and mannacle out of his pocket (now
how'd those get there) he chains you both to a wall. Hands and feet are
mannacled into spread eagle positions. He then gags you with strips of
cloth. You wonder why, since you cant speak, but you realize his spell
will wear off eventually and that is most likely the reason. Chained and
gagged, the priest leers at you. He removes both of your clothing so you
are both chained naked to the wall except for the mannacles around your
ankles and wrists. Chanting once more, you both vanish from sight,
apparently the victim of an invisibility spell. You can see clearly, but
you cannot be seen. He leaves you, vanishing in midair, unknown to you
is whether he is invisible, or has teleported elsewhere. Unable to move
as you are, able only to think, you wonder why this mans spells work so
well, where all others seem to fail so consistently.
