Laban begins running his sword across the wall point out and discovers
resistance directly above the puddle on the floor. Just to the right,
the sounds of chains being jerked and shaken is unmistakable. Muffled
sounds, (like someone talking with a sock in their mouth) is obvious
also. Laban notes aloud that it would seem someone is attatched
invisibly to the wall.
Keldar looks about, then moves forward. "Dust.... er we need ust ta see
this. Magics not working, so gotta use dust."
The little gnome then stands, staring at the area where the chain noise is
coming from. "Why'as everyone else got magic but us?"
Thse who have been with the group notice a marked relapse of Keldar's
since the recent discovery of our dead foe.
"What have you found Laban?" Barbaxle walks over to where the sounds of
moving chains is coming from. Once he is there he will feel from the top
down until he finds where the persons head should be. He will then search
for the face and see if anything is inserted into the mouth, if so he will
try to remove it. "I have a feeling that this might be one of our faithful
friends. How can we get this invisibility off from this person? I was
thinking if they punch someone, that the spell might dispel."
Jahl sheathes his sword and moves to where the hidden person is joining
barbaxle. With a light touch, Jahl examines the person and tries to locate
one of the shackles. A long, slim piece of metal appears in Jahl's hand as
he begins prodding the shackle by touch alone. "Hmm," Jahl muses, "not
unlike opening a lock in the dark..."
Sheial moves to the side of the now open hidden door, leaning against the
near wall as people quickly search the area. Still, even with a group, this
place gave her the shivers ... the blackness seeming to only give grudgingly
to the light. The smell of urine wafted towards the seawoman and she moved
closer when the others closed in on a specific spot along the opposite wall.
Sheial couldn't help but stare at the ... elf ? His skin was so dark and
his hair so white; it was a striking contrast. His swords seemed poised to
stab the invisible ... whatever it was ... if it should so much as move the
wrong way. Barbaxle and a' tall, trim man with brown hair and green eyes
moved towards the clanking and muffled noise. Inwardly Sheial was glad Cole
had thrown her chains into murky pool, especially when people first looked
to her to be the cause of the unwanted noise. They all seemed so concerned
about their friends and Sheial's brown eyes darkened with her feelings of
guilt. Her mind went back to the young female elf they had left behind,
alone, with the dead body and the lanky woman actually flinched.
Murmuring a "Must check on Aerial." to no one in particular, Shieal
backed off from the group surrounding the area and moved towards the hidden
door and the corridor beyond.
A very familiar voice calls out, " Don't you fucking turn any invisibility
off! I'd rather be sacrificed on that god-damned alter than be seen like
this!", more chain-rattling can be heard, "Just find a way to remove these
chains, and start with the bottom ones! I'm sure my clothes are around here
somewhere. As soon as I get down from here, I'm going to armor up and find
those sick bastards who did this."
"Such language from a ...," Jahl squints at the location her head should
be, "missing face." Jahl sighs loudly and says, "I must say though, this
is the best I've ever seen you Kay!" Jahl smirks. "Now stop moving around
so I can get this shackle off."
Vincas lets a huge sigh of relief when he hears Kay's voice. He lowers his
crossbow and moves over by Keldar. Kneeling down by the gnome he gets a
concerned look on his face.
"Hey Keldar...you doing OK? I know you're upset, we all are. But we've got
to keep it together or we're in big trouble. Save your emotions for when we
find those cultists." Vincas waits to see if Keldar is 'relapsing' and
exhibiting mannersims of any of his old friends.
Keldar nods at Vincs, showing that the gnome is OK, relatively. He then
bites his lip and prepares for battle.
The shackles stop shaking for a moment, "Pardon me If I don't laugh, this
bloody wall is freezing , and I think someone just pissed themself, as I can
smell it from here.", Kay reminds quite for a few more moments before
adding," And speaking of accidents, what the hell happened to you guys?"
Jahl succeeds at picking the lock on the invisible manacle, finally getting all
4 complete. A very angry, fortunately invisible Kay is released from the wall.
Overjoyed beyond belief, Kay momentarily forgets that she spent what felt
like an eternity chained to a wall, and the fact that some of her companions
appear to have been smacked silly by a ugly-club, and gives Jahl a quick
peck on the cheek before heading over to her armor and clothing, which she
quickly tosses on. "I'm sure they did the same thing to poor Arilyn, but she
won't be as receptive as I, since that freeze spell must still be on. Er,
speaking of spells, how did those cultists manage to get their magic to
Kay and Arilyn's misadventure
