With Shildoor walking onto Shore he adjusted his Armor as the water rushed out of it. "Preferably I would not take the underwater tunnel,
the water makes my movement sluggish and this Fine Armor encassing my splendid Form does weigh me down alot."
"Very well but don't say I did not offer you a alternate route"
Dale leads you through a tunnel that runs perfectly straight, like eerily straight and the walls are smooth every now and again the path is interrupted by a hole in the ceiling or the floor sometimes both. These holes are about 10ft across and seem to run straight down accompanying the holes is a thin ledge so you can get around the hole by flattening your self to the wall and shimmy across. After about 30mins you notice the oddest site a door made from wood with a round handle made of copper. Dale seems to ignore it completely and carry on his merry way, his movements are slow and deliberate almost as if he knows something.
Dale turns back and looks at Shavara rummaging inside his clothing as he does after a few seconds he pulls out a map, that is entirely to big for the space it came out of"This is how I know. No one comes this deep. Dale sighs "Where we are now was once a beholder lair, as the dwarves city kept expanding it caused issues with said beholder that eventually led to its demise." Dale pauses and blinks for just a bit longer than a standard blink "They say all though defeated the beholder never left. Now I have seen some things in my time and have raided plenty of temples and tombs, guided people through dense swamps and jungles. Rumours generally have some truth to them it took three dwarven platoons to bring down Mamon and three dwarven platoons we are not."
Dale sighs again "Then there is the rumour of some ancient power lurking even lower. I mean these rumours are generally true but embellished alot so who knows what we will find. Not much further now though."
"Yes! Thank you, my point exactly." Leonan says gesturing toward the door. "There is a story about lost shoe where the person they looked for was behind humble door and ni one checked it before they went through all the gilded ones."
