    Does Forge also feel the continued necrotic energy as he moves carefully forward 10 feet?

    No. He climbs out it as he leaves the pit.

    Is there enough light for the dwarf to see in? If so, he will cautiously advance as his compatriots follow. "See if you can tie a rope to something up there in case we need a quick exit!"

    Ghen will climb down and position his spirit to heal Lucian and Forge, who return to full hit points (though Forge is now down 1 surge). With his light you advance, and come to a ledge....and the necrotic sludge is back...

    This chamber collapses into a great chasm, and a steady outpouring of black necrotic sludge flows over the edge from great cracks in the walls. A greater torrent jets out from faults in the rough rock ofthe chasm, falling as a hissing curtain of necrotic rain.
    You can see neither the bottom, nor the other side of the opening.

    Up top, there is the rusty door...

    OOC: There is a door up a level that we didn't open?

    After verifying the escape rope is secure, Nar-Heru feather falls down in to the pit and through the door, following the party to the chasm. Nar-Heru approaches the edge and runs his staff along it, in case there is some invisible bridge. (who knows?) He'll look around for any other non obvious way across as well.

    The rusty door was a reference to the one you went through, in case you need something...to tie something...

    (what a waste of a 20). Nar, it would be good to have light to see the bottom of this thing. You can perceive some sort of ledges(?) under the falling black sludge.

    The Tiefling slowly slides down the wall into the pit, following the others as the proceed through the new door. Seeing Nar's unsteady foothold on the precipice, Lucien gently places his hand on the wizard's shoulder, "Professor, don't stand there. It's not healthy." He kneels down at the edge and looks within and across.

    Looking for the bottom, extra doors, and signs of any other (un)living things in the chamber besides us.

    EDIT: Hmmm, looks dark. I think there's a hole here.

    The ledge crumbling may explain why Lucian doesn't see much. But he is about to get a closer look!

    Forge and Nar jump back in time (DM rolls 1....2...).

    Lucian falls the 70 feet into a pool of necrotic sludge. Again! (Though the trauma of getting knocked off the bridge by the giant may have suppressed that memory).

    But he lands on his feet, like a cat.

    There is something down here the others should see.

    And the necrotic stuff raining down the side: really not normal.

    Forge will tie his length of rope to the other length of rope used to descend the first pit and throws it down to Lucien. "You ok? What do you see?"
