World of Kulan DM
Tuck can definitely hear something moving on the other side of the door but it isn't right next to the door. The sound echoes slightly but then it stops and all Tuck hears is silence. Whatever it is either stopped moving or has gone beyond what the kobold urban ranger can hear. Tuck is certain it was footsteps he heard. His scales itch. The equivalent of hairs standing up on a human's neck.”What is it?” Tuck whispers to Mutt, then moves closer to that door and listens intently.
Mutt sits in front of the door and continues to growl, low and menacing at the door.
Akos soon finds himself stuffed in a small room barely big enough for Tim, Tuck, and Vinccenzo let alone him and Tuck's big dog. There is a door directly to the Loremaster's right, opposite the door on the western wall. Akos can't tell if it is locked or not and he's not sure Tuck has checked all the closed doors yet. He stands under the shadow of Big Tim, who helped him down the last part of the rope. There isn't room for anyone else in the room without bumping into each other.With a weary sigh, the priest of the Seelie queen gets down, slowly, carefully, and with lots of quiet cursing and too tight clinging on the rope.
Once down, he looks at the dirt floor and with another sigh, the armor unfolds around him as he hitches his robes higher in hopes of keeping them clean for at least moments more.
Custodio digs into his pack and pulls out a sunrod. He gives the alchemical device a good smack against one of the cell's metal bars and light billows out from it. He holds it over the open hole and yells, "Sunrod, coming down! Watch your heads!" He drops the device and it lands in between Big Tim and Tuck. The light fills the entire room and beyond up to 30 feet. Shadows dance in the gloom 30 feet beyond that into the second room to the north.
The light passes under the door that Tuck is investigating and he hears something skitter more loudly this time. Tuck knows that sound. He's faced off against such beasts before on the edges of the Undercity. A giant spider most likely. With the moisture on the floor, it likely won't be a giant scorpion.
At first, Vinny can't see anything in the dark room, except the looming shadow of Tim above him and the light coming in from the hole in the guard post's floor above. Then, Custodio drops the sunrod and it is as bright as daylight in the room. Room isn't the right word for it. It's more like a closet but it smells like a privy."Good luck with that." says Vinny, glancing around the room
He can soon see past the two open doors and the choke point beyond, which spans 15 feet before opening up into a larger room. roughly 30 feet beyond the choke point is the outline of a statue sitting along the other room's western wall. It appears to be of some sort of winged beast but its features are clear from Vinccenzo's current position.
"I'm next," Breva insists. He doesn't want to be the last one down.
"I think we should wait until there is more room," Custodio suggests. "It's way too tight down there."
"Not for me," Arcanus Noguera says.
"Arcanus, you should wait until we've secured the immediate area," Custodio replies.
The young diviner looks down into the hole. "It looks pretty secure to me."
"Arcanus, I must insist..."
"Castellana," she interrupts. "That is my name. If we're going to work together, you should use it instead of my title." She grabs the rope and easily slides down it into the room below. Almost as easily as Tuck did. She comes out next to the kobold urban ranger who is still studying the door with Mutt standing next to him. She can see that he is listening intently so she stays quiet and distracts Mutt by patting him on the head.
"Well, I guess she's more than a diviner," Custodio says with a smile. He takes a hold of the rope and hands it Breva. "After you, but let's wait a moment." Then, he looks at Falen. "Then you're next. I'll go last."
