[IC] Return of the Runelords

Neurotic

I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
What is the plan? If you recall from Lullaby in post #562, "There is a secret door in the back left of the stonehouse that leads below to the basement."
OOC: Thanks for the reminder! I'm adding such clues to the charsheet in the future! It is easy to forget in this format. Anything else?


Drath wonders around the house, his feet feeling the foundations of the house until he comes in the general area Lullaby indicated.
"I can feel things hollow here. Ask Mother Nighttrush how to open it."

Teodor easily locates and opens the secret door. Just inside there is an unlit lantern hanging on a hook. The passage leads to the right with a stairway leading down into darkness.

Michael says, "Let me takea quick look down the stairway." After making the suggestion, he takes the lantern, turns it on and goes several feet down the stairway, sword in the other hand.

Teodor steps aside and lets Michael venture down with the lantern, but he does stand by with weapons ready if trouble is found.

As Michael starts looking for something to light the lantern, Michelle casts a spell while touching the lantern. Magical light is produced on the lantern. Michael can see that the stairs descend down to a lower floor.

Michael looks back at his allies and says, "I'm going down to take a quick look downstairs. I could use a second to watch my back and maybe spot something I'm missing."

Shendra states that she will stay with the woman. Everyone else heads down the stairs. The stairs leading lead down nearly 80 feet as the stairs switch back from landing to landing before arriving here. A single lantern sits in the center of the floor. A door to the west is boarded up with six sturdy pine planks secured into the stone doorframe with iron spikes. An empty silver saucer sits in front of the door, accompanied by a few bread crumbs, and an arched opening leads to the south.

"Hrrmph!" harrumphs Drath
"There must be something dangerous behind the door. Just a question is it werewolf, devil or some force for good...those would be tortured by silver plate. Alternative that it is some kind of fey or demon vulnerable to iron. Which actually doesn't help at all. Maybe silverware is all they have, fancy bandits that they are. We should keep going, leave well enough be."

"Maybe this was a back way into this place. Wasn't this place connected to some caves or something," Michael asks. He raises the lantern and tries to get an idea of what is to the south.

"Maybe the door is simply reinforced to prevent goblins and their ilk from coming in. Don't forget, not all goblins are weak." Drath offers
"But let us explore the easy path first."
