(knowledge (whatever) check to id 16+7=23)

 

Picking up and resheathing his sword, he moved to reclaim his dagger, and give the creature a once-over, while plumbing the library of knowledge he had acquired over the years for a probable identity for the thing, in case there was risk of running into another of it's kind down in the catacombs. A sour look upon his face at having encountered something dangerous right away. Though if it was from the danger, or the lack of warning, and care from the priests who supposedly tended the dead here, one would be hard pressed to guess.

"Aye, Ma'alik, we should leave this place.  I am unsure what that was, and I really do not care to learn until we are in a more safe venue.  Although, it appears Silial is concentrating on something.  Is everyone in need of healing?"

 

Once Sillial's daylight spell is over, Sturgis will resume casting Light as needed.

The party gathers up dropped items from the fight.

Sillilial releases his summoned eagle, and begins the complex task of summoning his Eidolon.

During that casing, the daylight spell fades, only to be replaced by a weaker light spell cast by Sturgis.

Janalyth pokes and prods the corpse until he snaps his fingers...

 

"It's a Darkmantle" he says.  It's a magical beast with poor flying ability, weak climbing, dark vision, the ability to summon darkness, and a nasty ability to crush you if it latches on.

We should be alert, sometimes there are more than one."

 

Once you are ready, you finish climbing down the stairs.

The stairs open into a 30' x 30' room, with ornate double doors on the west, north, and east walls.

 

Old carvings cover the walls of this square chamber, thick with dust and cobwebs.  Three sets of stone double doors stand in the three facing walls.  Heavy bronze seals emblazoned with the symbol of Pharasma secure the doors against whatever lies beyond.

 

How do you want to proceed?  Assume you are still on the stairs until you tell me otherwise.

Sturgis steps to the bottom of the stairs, and slightly to the right.  Seeing the door to his right, he looks to see if the door has been damaged in any way from the distance.  He's cautious, the darkmantle and the possibility of traps at this point are a concern.

 

"What way to go?  Right is right, or straight ahead.  Left is never right"  He muses.

Ma'alik pauses at the bottom of the stairs opens his senses wide and "feels" for any sort of taint within the room. [detect evil]

Assuming nothing is amiss and no traps have been detected/sprung he will attempt to investigate the carvings upon the walls.

Applicable knowledge: (d20) 9+5 (nobility/religion) or +1 (all else) = 14 or 10

Extra rolls: 1, 3

cleaning and sheathing his dagger, he moves to look at the door on the right, studying it for traps  (take 10 for 17) Even though he really did not expect to find any. Assuming that the priests would need to travel through here on a semi-regular basis to do their duty, and hopefully if there were traps they would have been given some warning. If not, well, one thing about his previous bardic training, even in a temple, was that he knew how to curse someone out, thoroughly, in several different languages.

 

(extra rolls, 9 & 6)

Janalyth checks the right door, and finds no evidence of traps.  It would appear the doors have been secured with ARCANE LOCK.

 

Ma'alik "Scans" the room with his innate ability to ferret out evil wherever it may hide...

and comes up empty.

 

Sillilial looks around for runes, and doesn't find any.

When Sturgis and Sillilial (and Reaver) reach the bottom of the stairs and look around, they find some graffiti scratched into the northern wall.

 

Sturgis will mention first to the party that the carvings are ancient.  They reference the seven Runelords of ancient Thassilon.

 

The graffiti says "My heart beats on the wrong side of my chest, or is it right?  Is left right, or is it wrong? I don't know what it means, or why."

 

You can either try to break the doors open (very difficult), hack down the doors (very noisy and long time), use the Chime of Opening (limited uses) or pick the lock (OK to take 20, which takes 2 minutes).

(27 to pick the lock taking 20)

 

Quietly he hums a tune to himself as he fiddles carefully with the lock. Taking as much time as it takes to either get it open or determine that he was not going to ever get it with his current level of skill.

(5 and 2 for secondary rolls, look like I used all my luck in the fight for the time being)

Sturgis waits patiently, trying to decipher what, if anything he can from the notes on the walls.

 

Knowledge:  History:  9+6= 15,  Probably only what I got above.
