Mr. Hammon dusts himself off after the fall, and he and Mordecai scan the floor of the room for sign of the creature or another like it.

I assume lighting is poor here without infravision?

No handles, no place to put a key...

The light is poor while the floor swings back up. I think I remembered someone lighting a torch before it got dark, but maybe I'm inventing that (or cross-remembering a different run)? Infravision would be the only means of seeing anything, unless a lantern/torches/candles/etc. were lit...

Stretching things (since we can't talk it over in real time) in examining the metal: tapping on the walls, they sound deep, certainly thicker than just paneling -- but the doors sound much thinner.

Deepwell is yelling in excitement the whole way down. After he lands, he stands, brushes himself off and looks for a way to do that again. Until he notices the doors. Then he forgets everything that came before. He runs from each door to the next, looking for similarities and differences. He becomes obsessed with the mystery that is these doors.

Initially, they look the same... then he notices that one has a 8-inch, diagonal scratch near the bottom (N), and one has a small dent like someone hit the other side of it with a hammer about three feet above the ground (E). Getting absorbed by these details and looking for further, subtler signs, all three have faint drag marks horizontally across their surfaces, (N) and (S) about equally, with (E) being less marked in this way.

Okar will try to push the south door open, failing that he will try using his shovel on one side or the other to try and pry the door open. "Well, one way or another"

Mordecai and Mr. Hammon offer their help at the south door, Mordecai searching with his hands beside the door for another panel

Your efforts with the (S) door cause it to rattle in place and then spontaneously slide about 1/3 open. With a little more effort, if slides completely into the wall.

Beyond is a hallway straight ahead, running for about 30 feet, then turning to the left.

The hall is similarly a burnished metal, top, bottom, and sides.

Budy looks up from his moping on the floor "Wheel wha ya know..." Casually he strolls up to the now open door and squats down tot take a peek between the legs of any of the taller folk cluster by the door. "Hrm more ewaster good metal.." he rumbles.

OC See anything Unusual? Forgive me I think Dwarves at 0 level get a weak IR vision yes no? Is it any use here. Those that know me feel free to prod me on FB if I am late like this. We just had somebody quit at work and well guess who gets to take up the slack till they get back...

The Cousins were doing some stuff when the floor dropped out. Can I assume that Chip has been attempting to gather up anything that spilled from their packs till this point? Bundy has a few torches & Flint & steel if nobody else looks like they are packing he'll light a torch after hes had a peek down the hall for the benefit of the 'umans After that unless sombody beats me too it I think we'll take a cautious wander to where the hall turns left and peer around that.

Once there is light, brother Mordecai announces to the torchbearer:
Mordecai: "Let there be LIGHT! If you'd lead the way, good sir, we'd be obliged to see nothing snuff that torch or its bearer!"

Mordecai and Hammon draw their meager weapons and take up defensive flanking positions around the light bearer (Bundy?), Mordecai on the right and Hammon left.

Collecting yourselves, a few souls venture into the hallway.

They find the hall zig-zagging to the left -- picture a W layout, with the first leg of the letter being the hall that tied into the room.

At the other tip of the W is a stairwell going down. The three of you standing there can hear faint, irregular, reverberant sounds rising from below. The sound is non-mechanical, probably, but the pervasive metal "panelling" gives it a sort of "shimmer" of a metallic ring. Animals grunting or grumbling in the distance? ...Maybe.

It seems dark in that direction (down), but then again the winding of the stairs would block light.

The subscribe feature is a game changer. Thanks so much for the heads up.

Deepwell is completely overwhelmed with the excitement of all these new options and unknowns. He would go with the group, trying to peek around every corner, touch every surface. Until he hears that sound. Then he's all about that sound. He cannot wait to find out what is making that sound.

Okar will begin to go down the stairs with his shovel out in front of him.

Author:  GnomeBoy [ Tue May 22, 2018 6:59 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Funnel Game: MUTATIS MUNDI....

Okar, alert and ready for trouble, makes his way cautiously down the stairs...

He descends a flight of 20 feet, and rounds to the next flight. The murmurings and grumblings become clearer and -- it's the voices of his friends from town! Rurik! Lyle! Ray! They must all be down this way!!

[Two more flights of stairs and you're all reunited, except for Rockla and for Nate.]

[We've been a bit scarce on action since the top, and hope that hasn't put anyone off. But you've managed to avoid the dangers, so far...] :wink:

Ok, so out of character:
We can go down the hole here, out the nearby door and down the tunnel.
Back up the stairs and try one of the other two doors.

Did I miss any direction?

Sounds right.

To re-state:
• Leap the gap and explore beyond.
• Go down the gap and see what's there.
• Go back and climb down the rest of the 'chimney' (joining Rockla).
• Go up the stairs and through another door (N) or (E).

Rurik being the rat catcher he is "I vote for exploring the hole here" and he climbs down.

I'll wait for another reply or two before posting the result...

But I wanted to say I'm going to be at a Con this weekend, so updates beyond today will probably not be until Tuesday of next week (the 29th).

Lyle is good to explore the gap at hand, as he'd stared down it previously, as long as someone going in has light.

Brother Mordecai and Mr. Hammon will offer to join any expedition deeper in to join Rockla and seek the source of the corruption.

Some of you begin climbing down the pit created by the missing section of flooring. You quickly discover it's rougher going than the tall chimney some of you scaled previously.

Anyone climbing down needs to make a DC 15 Agility check. If your Occupation would include climbing skills, use a d24 for the check.

Post subject:  Re: Funnel Game: MUTATIS MUNDI....

Rurik rolls a 13 +1 Agility +1 burning luck = 15

As he starts to sweat, "I think this is a bad idea" and is currently contemplating not proceeding further and thinking about climbing back up.

Lyle starts down...
AGI=9
Lyle: :shock:

Is that Lyle falling, or Lyle realizing he's not cut out for climbing with only a 9 AGL? :lol:

(Either way, it's funny.)

HA! Falling, I suppose. He has a 10 but rolled 9. Burning 6 Luck just gets ya killed around the corner, so... long way down, is it? :mrgreen:

Post subject:  Re: Funnel Game: MUTATIS MUNDI....

Rurik watches in horror as Lyle and Deepwell slip and fall!

The slope of the pit means it's not a freefall to the bottom, but the uneven surface makes the impact brutal and the tumble harrying.

Each takes 1d6+1 damage before reaching the base some 40' below.
