Crimsyn knew even less than Alet. She was a fighter, not a magic user. Alet had never actually been to the tower or seen the table device that Theremin told him of. “Some magic obviously transported you here,” he said.

"Thank you" Theremin says laconically. It is obvious that if there is a way back home, it'll be in the tower. He heads back to his companions, and if no-one has any additional ideas, he prepares to head to the tower.

OOC: I think it's exploration time folks ;-)
Question for @KahlessNestor, would brokering the peace between two warring villages be a good milestone for a level up? ;-)

The heroes of Hydellor set out along the cracked and broken road that had brought them to the Essian village. The tower was quite a ways from the village, around five hours, but it seemed longer, since there was no real sun in the sky by which to tell time and direction, just a dull, perpetual twilight. They only knew it was day because it was slightly brighter than when it was night.

Nothing accosted the heroes on their way, and soon the shadowed, dilapidated tower rose on the hills above the road, the ring wall crumbling but still intact, the thick wooden gates weathered and grey and slightly ajar. It seemed exactly as you left it.

Theremin spent the night dreaming about the spells he had read. Something must have happened because the next morning, he had a better understanding of the ebbs and flows of the weave, and was eager to try what he thought were interesting spells. After his normal morning ballad to cheer his companions, he bid Crymsin farewell and set on the path to the tower

OOC: all companions and sayine have 9 temp hp from the inspiring leader feat


"We need the scour this place, room by room."

"Agreed, let us proceed systematically, and start with the first one to the right."

Sayine trembled on Theremin’s shoulder. “I don’t like this place,” the faerie dragon said, adjusting her yellow wings. She eyed the dim sky. “It will be dark soon.” Sayine peered ahead at the gates. It had been a few days since they had been here last.

OOC: How are you approaching? Are you just marching through the gates into the bailey?

There is a circular wall around the tower. The wall here (in the Shadowfell) is weathered and old, but it isn't damaged from the seige, with gaps in it, like the one back on the Prime. The gates are grey with age and moss, but still still stout and on their hinges. They are ajar, though, so you can get through.

The tower is the same aged and weathered stone, but there aren't the holes in it that were in the one on the Prime. The door is in the same condition as the gates, and is also slightly open. The grass around here isn't as long as it was back in the Prime, but rather the same dull, half dead grey vegetation that grows throughout the Shadowfell. A few similar trees are around the area and inside the bailey.

In the fading light, Theremin didn’t see any evidence of anyone else inside the walls surrounding the tower, at least on this side. Unlike in the Prime plane, the grass wasn’t long enough for kobolds to hide in. It seemed safe.

As Theremin peeked into the front door of the tower, he saw the empty half-room of the foyer from when they had exited the tower days before. The staircase on the right still went around and up to the next level, and there were still the double doors in the wall beyond.

But Theremin did hear things. He seemed to hear the sounds of sword striking armor or shield, shouts of battling foes.

Mindra spent quite a bit of time combing the ground outside the gate, in the bailey and around the tower looking for any trace of the kobolds that fled the tower. Only noticing after the fact that Theremin and Coriana were heading into the tower. Once she realized she followed quickly after.

OOC: I don't expect her to find anything, but here are some rolls for fun.
Survival check to find tracks: 1D20+10 = [7]+10 = 17
Investigate to look for the orb or other clues: 1D20+4 = [9]+4 = 13
Perception check to notice anything she is not specifically looking or listening for: 1D20+10 = [15]+10 = 25

Does Mindra hear the sounds of battle? Can she tell where it is coming from?

Mindra found tracks left by the kobolds. Most seemed to be fleeing the area of the tower. No kobolds still seemed to be in the bailey. She didn’t find any orb. When she followed Theremin and Coriana into the tower, she, too, heard the sounds of battle. They sounded as if they were in the room, but also...distant. As she moved through the room, she felt a slight chill passing through some areas, followed by the normal chill of the Shadowfell in others.

Double doors stood in the wall opposite the entrance, and the staircase led up into the tower. A single door was set under the stairs that Mindra remembered led to the dungeon in the Material Plane.

Theremin whispers to his companions "Lets investigate who is making this noise". Although Theremin would gladly rush forward, his lack of armor and protective magics make him reluctant to do so.
 

Awfully Cheerful Engine!
