Magsman (Lvl 14)
Sabynha and Gray rush forward into the frozen waterfall reaching towards Rain's outstretched hands. Gray even almost makes it, before the pressure of their passage becomes crushingly intense and they are thrust backwards with incredible force, crashing hard into the edge of the shallow pool many feet nearly 20 feet away. It is now clear how difficult this passage will be and the truly heroic effort of Rain to have crossed on her first attempt.

Try as he might, Wat just isn't strong enough to make the crossing through the waterfall.
Soaked, Wat picks himself off the ground.
"Do you think Julianna and Orlando had the strength to make it through?"
"It's no good. I simply don't have the strength to make it through. We'll have to find another way..."
Wat studies the waterfall for a moment seeing if there is any way through...
"Perhaps I could..."
"If you can climb the mountain, bring the summit to you... I think I could..."
"Rain, Sabynha, I need a hand."

Acolyte (Lvl 2)
Seeing that she can, perhaps, be of use to the group here (and hoping it might do something to even the imbalance of having been well and truly throttled in nearly all the battles fought alongside them), Zuri says softly, "I'll try next."
Once her companions have cleared the way, Zuri pushes her way through the waterfall, gritting her teeth against the force of it.
To Rain she nods in acknowledgement of the woman's feat in going through first. A quick scan of the room doesn't superficially suggest anything of value to grab so she turns to the waterfall, offering to add her assistance to the next person to attempt to come through....

Gallant (Lvl 3)
Gray is flung back from the waterfall with the force of a cannon. His body skips along the top of the gelatinous surface of water in the pool, parts of his body "sticking" for a moment while the rest of his body continues on at break-neck speed, causing limbs to wrench out of place, sockets to strain painfully, and skin to get friction burn. Finally, he lands against the far wall of the cavern, slamming his head into the rock. For a moment, Gray sees a flash of white and he nearly passes out. Shaking his head in sheer determination, however, the monk focuses his senses and forces himself to stand, albeit very slowly.
Growling angrily, he limps his way back over to the waterfall. "Everyone move! If we cannot walk through it... I will break it! It is water...and water is no match for the desert!"
With that, strides up to the still waterfall and begins generating heat within his hands. With a flurry of rapid punches, Gray attempts to eliminate the barrier with the heat of the desert sun!

Magsman (Lvl 14)
Wat's frustrated attempts are not for naught. His understanding of the barrier of water begins to crystalise just as Zuri rushes through. The eladrin is only a split second away from being thrust backwards when Rain grasps her wrist and pulls her safely through to the room beyond.
Gray nears the barrier and uses his psionic power to disrupt the flow of the frozen water. Wat can see that some how the impact of his fists have weakened the barrier though the fire itself merely causes a few wisps of vapour to rise to the ceiling. But more importantly he realises the water does indeed move, but its movement is extremely slow.

Scout (Lvl 6)
Wat attunes himself to the falling of the water.
"I see... Follow my lead."
Wat begins to move slowly, muscles twinging almost imperceptibly. First a hand, then the tip of a foot enters the cascade. The muscles begin to strain from being held in nearly the same position. When is face enters the fall the others watch, wondering if he will drown. But eventually after many minutes, he emerges on the other side.

ø Block Nemesis Destiny
Too stunned from being ejected by the slow waterfall to even speak, Sabynha is unable to answer Wat before he figures things out on his own. She picks herself up, wincing from a new bruise, and follows Wat's lead.

Gallant (Lvl 3)
Although Gray had trained for physical activities, moving slowly was not one of them. He was much more used to the opposite, due to his avoidance and movement training. As such, his muscles were just too twitchy, and even with the assistance of Wat and his own punches to the waterfall, he moved too quickly to attune himself to the slow movement of the sluggish water.

Magsman (Lvl 14)
Gray is flung with crushing force from within the waterfall up against the edge of the pool once more. Bloody and battered but learning from the rib crunching experience, Gray tries a different approach, finding the stillness within himself to traverse the falls and at last joins his companions in the room beyond the falls.
Meanwhile as Rain patiently remains partly within the fall as though frozen in time herself the sharp eyes of the rest of the group discover that wet footprints of shoe wearing humanoids have dried here, leaving marks on the floor. Two sets of such prints lead from the room into the tunnel.

Minor Trickster (Lvl 4)
Slowly, Rain withdraws from the water curtain and moves to stand guard at the tunnel entrance, whilst the others recover. She also attempts to warm herself with her blanket.
"That was exceedingly strange and dangerous. I'm still not certain how we all got through; my vision was seemingly blurred."
