Re: (082) The Darkness Below

I have Zax up front, with Zem and Akbar next in the secret passage, then Karl and Fried in the back...

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Zax maneuvers himself between the statues and chains with exactly none of the finesse Leudigar exhibited...

The tracker, Zem, and Akbar hold their breath and cringe as the gnomish fighter tromps and stamps his way across the crowded mezzanine and down the ramp. By the Grace of Holy Unknowables, he somehow avoids creating a giant calamity before reaching the ramp, and from there it is an easy trot down to Leudigar's position...
Let's see how Zax fares... 1d6=3, so okay then. And meanwhile, are there any NPCs doing anything meaningful? 1d6=?

Leudigar tries his best not to turn and grimace at the raucous gnome as he waits for the others to make their way down.

Akbar carefully threads through the statues and descends the ramp.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

When Freid gets to the bells, he thinks to himself, "I wonder if you could snip these bells from the cord without making noise, or maybe cut the end of the cord and lower the bells gently to the floor?"

He's not trying either of these things right now, though.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Akbar weaves his way along the mezzanine, and down the ramp, without incident. Meanwhile, at the top, Fried realises the bells are bolted onto the chain... cutting them off would be out of the question.
1d6=5 for Akbar. Meanwhile... 1d6=?

Zem pulls on his beard while watching Akbar thread the path. He shrugs and tries to carefully follow the path the others took.

"Rrr-hmm," grunts Zax, in a not-so-subtle effort to get Leudigar's attention. "So...what now long-legs?" he asks, clearly unhappy with being still for so long.

When Karl gets his turn, he's going to hold his breath. It seems like it's been too easy so far.

"We wait for the others, big nose," Leudigar replies to the large snozzled gnome. "Because I think we need all of us here when we face whatever it is making the stench beyond that archway."
