[quote="Cognivore"][size=18][b]Tordek's base, Impassible Mountains[/b][/size] [b]Armina, Natha & Zorriste[/b] It seems that your arrival here has generated quite a bit of interest. Dwarves of all ages are flocking from all over to see you. Looking around, it looks more like a temporary encampment than a military base. Buildings are rare, the only notables being what appears to be a barracks and what is obviously Tordek's living quarters and center of command. The rest are temporary houses and the like for the noncombatants, dwarves who have fled Doran's wrath to take shelter with Tordek. The people examine you with mixed emotions, ranging from bold displeasure to frightened curiosity. The guards escort you up to the command center, occasionally checking to make sure you are keeping up. Once inside, you realize that despite the appearance of the rest of the encampment, this structure is meant to withstand a long struggle. Well crafted and well organized, the command center is a shining example of dwarven ingenuity. Guards constantly patrol the maze-like hallways and intersections, many of which look identical. Eventually, you come to a door exactly like every other you have seen, and the guards knock. The door opens and the guards motion for you to enter. The door closes behind you as you walk in on a room whose main feature is a long table, most likely used for conferences. Two dwarves are sitting at the near end of the table facing you. Both wear the symbol of their clan, a bolt of lightning striking a shield. The elder dwarf stands and bows to you. [b]"Greetings. I am Tordek Thundershield. Thank you for answering my call for aid. It is a dark time for our race and it may become darker without your help."[/b] [b]Brottor[/b] As you sit with your father in the Assembly Hall discussing tactics to thwart Doran, there is a knock on the door. Your father waves his hand and the door opens, revealing three travelers. They enter and look around, their eyes finally resting on your and your father. He stands and bows to them. [b]"Greetings. I am Tordek Thundershield. Thank you for answering my call for aid. It is a dark time for our race and it may become darker without your help."[/b][/quote]

Armina followed the others to the exit, looking solemn and bored as ever.

Enna fell in beside or just behind the gargoyle, advancing warily and quietly, checking out the passage as they went.
((moving half speed (25'), searching for traps or other nasties, and entering full sneak/spot/etc mode))

Finally catching up with the rest of the group, Brottor unluckly has not time for any rest as the group is on the move once again. He waits by the entrance to take up the rear incase of anything happens

"I don't know. Let me go first."
answered Krahagga, moving further down the corridor while trying to look inconspicuously rocky.
((Hide check: 24.))
Posted: Fri May 09, 2008 1:34 am
Zorriste headed with the others down the allegedly good corridor.
Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 11:01 pm
Enna walked in after the rest, caught up with the gargoyle and bent down to whisper;
"How safe is this corridor? Do you know if we might expect traps, ambushes, maybe patrols?"
Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 10:46 pm
Natha raises an eyebrow and follows cautiously.
Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 10:36 pm
Krahagga began to shuffle down the indicated passage, confident that he was in least danger from ambushes or the like and so should explore it.
Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 10:11 pm
Armina cast the same spell, by way of verification.
Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 7:37 pm
Natha points at the eastern door.
"I suspect this may be our path, since it is the only one marked magically. Does anyone have reason to agree or disagree?"
Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 11:54 am
The rune above the eastern door glows a faint blue.
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 7:05 pm
Natha frowns at the runes, then mutters quietly, looking at all of them in turn.
((Detect Magic at the runes.))
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 1:26 pm
Krahagga sees four identical runes, one inscribed above each door. Engraved is the dwarven word for "passage".
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 1:01 pm
Krahagga looked for the marker that was supposed to be above the correct tunnel.
((Spot: 1d20(14)+9 = 23.))
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 5:06 am
The doors swing shut behind you and plunge the tunnel into darkness. The only light emanates from Brottor's torch. Moving at a moderate pace down the tunnel, you arrive at the cavern Tordek spoke of. You enter in the SW of the room. There are four passageways, five including the one you entered through, one at each cardinal direction.

Once he was the last to stand with his father, Brottor turns with a smile on his face and says
"I'll have the ale out and poured with the fires roaring with savory roasts waiting for you and brothers return to our home"
letting out a small chuckle, Brottor moves forward and give his father a bow and a hug then turns off and runs into the darkness
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 2:48 am
Zorriste nodded before giving a sweeping bow for once, which was interesting in his surprisingly-flexible armour, then continuing.
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 1:05 am
Krahagga wondered if he should introduce himself, then decided that Tordek had done so satisfactorily.
Posted: Wed May 07, 2008 12:31 am
Armina walked with the others.
Posted: Tue May 06, 2008 10:38 pm
Enna turns to the king and bows again,
"And over you, your highness. We shall do our utmost."
He then turns and walks after the little drow, a lot more quietly than the heavy hooves might have implied.
Posted: Tue May 06, 2008 9:41 pm
Natha nods and sets off down the tunnel.
Posted: Tue May 06, 2008 3:18 pm
"Good. Well then, let's be off."
Tordek opens the door and walks out. You follow him out of the keep and across a wooden bridge that spans a chasm roughly 60 feet across. After a 15 minute walk, you come to a set of steel doors set into the side of a cavern. Tordek reaches into a pouch and produces a large key, with which he proceeds to unlock the doors. They swing open and reveal a tunnel that extends as far as you can see.
He takes a torch and lights it, giving it to Brottor.
"This tunnel will eventually take you to a cavern. We put a marker above the tunnel that will lead you to Doran. May Moradin watch over you."

"You may call me Armina,"
Armina introduced herself.
"I dispense death, and undeath."
Posted: Tue May 06, 2008 1:50 pm
said the armoured man
"Well my name is Zorriste Dantemanne, but you may call me Zorriste. I am a philosopher above all things. But other than that I have mastered psionic potential and other, more proactive skills to meet or aid in my philosophies."
the man's skin was well tanned from travel and the sun, with symettrical black and white tattoes on both sides of his face, meeting in the middle and trailing off down his neck to elsewhere, before he placed his green-plumed helmet back onto his head and tied it back on.
"Oh, and I almost forgot someone."
he looks to his backpack and out of it floats a fist-sized yellow, many faceted crystal, which seems to speak or similar in a almost monotous voice
"I am The Mind's Relief in the Contemplation of the World, or Relief. We should continue."
before floating back into the backpack.
Posted: Tue May 06, 2008 1:43 pm
"I'm sure some of us have heard of each other before, but why don't we start by introducing ourselves? I am Natha Vinio, a cleric of Lolth."
The beautiful drow draws back its hood, revealing long blue-black hair and piercing grey eyes.
