"I'm certain that ring can be mastered once the celestial markings on it are placed in proper order," speaks Dhren, "Although mayhap they ARE in order if viewed from the other side of it? If I remember rightly, on the side I looked at them, those star-signs were nearly perfectly backwards. Perhaps one must physically enter the ring from the side that the markings make sense, if there are no dials to move the markings about to correct placement. I bet we can get it figured out."
Having cut the rope, Dhren makes a move towards the stairs that lead to the ring-room, sword in hand, quietly stepping. He turns back to the party, shrugging his shoulders and smiling as he whispers somewhat loudly to them,
"You never know. Something might have followed us back here. I'll check the stairs for just that." And this is what he does, moving to the left side of the entry to the stairs, and peeks up them. He remains there, watching up the stairs, listening for any commotion from the ring room that might signify that the others were attacked or came upon some sort of trouble in there.
