So we assemble our battle scarred and a bit ragged team to investigate the last room past the crumbled wall. According to our map there are two rooms to our east that move north. Since we are at this time pretty depleted in combat power, and (Kilder)Gildor doesn’t want to have a long rest here in the east wing. We decide to push on, So Vonin our shapeshifter Druid decides to go in alone and scout out the area. He shapes himself into that familiar Dire wolf shape and move in after we tie 100ft of rope around him. “Just in case he gets attacked.” He moves in stealthily at first, he disappears around the corner and we loose sight of him. Gildor decides that he wants to be able to see him, so he also jumps the wall and moves forward. But soon the available light is too dim for him to see. So we all wait for the walls to come crashing down on us.
(From the perspective of Vonin from his description when he comes back to report to us what he has found.)
He says that there is a broken second floor above that he says is a large chest. But he left it alone. He also reports that there is a fairly large crevasse going down the middle of the room. So he Wild shaped into a giant spider, and tried to cross the crevasse, but he says he slipped and fell into it.
(How does one who is shaped shifted into a giant spider with 8 legs and can spin a web fall!!??.)
He says that he fell an undetermined distance before he caught himself by using his we ability. He crossed over to the other side, and climbed up the crevasse wall. He arrives on the other side, where upon he discovers another chest with a blanket covered skeleton clutching a note.
(So back to the rest of the party.)
At this time Eskiath, Carybdis and myself are wondering what is going on, so we jump the wall to be able to better support Vonin if need be. Then we hear Gildor casting a spell, which catches us a bit off guard. But it’s only mage hand, he is checking the chest to see if it’s locked. Which it is. So he calls for Carybdis to climb up and help him with it. So i tie off the end of the rope to the a large section of the crumbled wall.
Be right back, need to go kill something…….
