    Hmmmm ok mister dwarf. I guess I was wrong$ we get you out later. I don't think a dragon will come before but if he does, here's your knife. Maybe you can be lucky and stab its eye. the thri-kreen says. He turns to Gensai "ok. I'm coming." Tikchik say happily despite his grievous wounds.

    "Sheng, what about you. If we all go we have maybe a slim chance."
    Riardon readies himself for the suicide commando...

    Maybe we have luck and HMG will allow us to count the brief talk as time for a short rest. If not, everything we will encounter is still the same encounter as the rat kobold.

    Sheng shrugs. "I get to take the souls of more kobolds, so it's a fair trade for me. But we might get some insight if you explain the layout of this area we are going to assault, and the threats and enemies we might encounter." he says, waiting for a tactical layout.

    OOC: Sheng will spend as many surges as necessary to get to ful hp with any healing tat can be provided.

    GM: I'm back . Thanks for waiting patiently. I assume you've decided to go back upstairs after Mervin and Rujah. Right?

    Tenchuu: Given that I've been out so long, is it OK if I NPC you over the next week? If so, what direction do you have concerning Encoutnters/Dailies?

    GM: Tenchuu e-mailed me with Gensai's motivations, so I'm going to go ahead and keep the ball rolling.


    The fetid reek of the prison yields to the relatively refreshing mist, like that of an approaching storm, all too familiar to Gensai as he leads the group up the staircase to the corridor, where just moments before, they faced almost certain death.

    As they round the corner into the corridor where Mervin protected Riardon's flight, a lingering scent of the wizard's rancid could of obscuring gas hangs in the stormy air. Remorse sweeps over the warlord like a wave as regret over his cowardly flight fills his heart, and there turns bitterly to anger and zeal for the wizard's recovery.

    The walls are slick, glazed with water leaching through rock walls that drips audibly in the virtually silent corridor. There is no sign of the kobolds with whom the party clashed so recently except the occasional rat skittering over the floor.

    The doors at the end of the hallway stand open, mockingly inviting the adventurers to enter. Over the pit through which Gensai and his companions fell the make-shift bridge still lies as if to say "We'll make it easy for you."

    On the far side of the pit, a large antechamber opens up, dimly lit, depicting a grusome scene. A man who might have been in his mid-life, dressed in regal clothing lies singed and torn in half atop an alter between two large gargoyle-like statues.
    Nature DC 15
    The scene is still relatively fresh. Evidently the evisceration occurred no more than two hours ago, because blood, though coagulated, still oozes from the body, over the altar pooling on the floor.
    Dried puddles of blood form footprints that climb the stairs and disappear behind a tapestry serving as a backdrop to a large stone statue of a green dragon which stands on the dais that overlooks the altar.

    A rat crosses the room, squeaks when it sees the adventurers and skitters up the stairs of the dais to disappear behind the tapestry.

    Terrain
    Celiings: The ceiling here is 20 feet high.

    Tapestry:
    This is completely opaque and deceivingly heavy, completely blocking line of sight and effect. It requires a Standard action to open. Creatures holding the tapestry open are unable to perform standard actions without letting the tapestry fall.

    Blood: Running through blood requires a DC 20 Athletics check or you slip. Walking or maneuvering in combat through the blood carries no check or penalty.

    Altar: The altar is 30 inches (~76cm) tall, and thus requires two squares of movement to traverse. It provides cover between creatures on opposite ends, and superior cover to prone creatures, provided the altar interrupts line of sight/effect.

    Dais: Climing the stairs uses movement as normal, but PCs on the stairs grant combat advantage (note that NPCs and monsters do NOT grant combat advantage on the stairs).

    Half Walls (P45 and P48): These are difficult terrain and contain brazers. The half walls are level with floor of the dais and grant cover to

    Gargoyle statues:
    These are mounted atop the half walls. Squares O45 and O48 are difficult terrain. These statues are heavily anchored and cannot be toppled.

    Brazers: Difficult Terrain. Additionally, these are primarily to provide light, but they are burning, and thus creatures forced to move through these squares suffer 2d6 fire damage.

    Statues (L43-M44 and L49-M50): These statues are 10 feet tall. Squares M43,M44,M49, and M50 are difficult terrain. Medium creatures can squeeze through L43,L44,L49, and L50. The statues can be toppled with a Strength check DC 25. Creatures under a falling statue are subject to a +10 vs. Reflex attack and take 1d10 damage if hit. After this, the affected squares are difficult terrain.
    Gensai, Riardon, Fenwick: Streetwise DC 14
    There is a crest on the body's clothing, and you've seen this crest before. It was on a bill poster back in Rioc Alair
    Streetwise DC 17
    This is the body of Lars Hallmaster. The crest was on the reward poster you saw in the gatehouse of Rioc Alair.
    Nature DC 15
    The body on the altar has been singed not by fire, but by lightning.
    Tikchik, Sheng: Monster Knowledge
    The statue is of a green dragon, yet you were delivered here by a blue dragon. This is strange. This dungeon (and perhaps the blue dragon's lair) has most likely been re-purposed.
    Map History
    Antechamber Map
    GM: The idea here is to look for clues as to where everyone is. Gensai will go last.

    For now, post skill checks per above, or per your imagination. I'll work skill challenge rules tonight.

    No, it doesn't. Riardon still thinks trying to regroup was the only sound tactical choice. No regrets.

    Riardon investigates the body.
    "These burn marks. They were not caused by fire but by lightning...
    this crest... I have seen it before. Yes, on a bill poster back in Rioc Alair."

    "Ohhh.... this not good is it? Was this your friend you were looking for? He's been dead a few hours I think. See? Look at that blood, it still dripping. Not good. Oh, you have anyone who wants to hurt you with lightning magicks? Your friend here was burnt with lightning. I saw a lightning bolt hit a friend once, his skin looked like this guys too." the thri-kreen states, then looks at the tapestry.

    "Maybe we can move it and see if there's anything hiding behind?" Tikchik suggests.
