bracing his feet against the edge of the well, Pinbehlu dipped in the water, grabbed the chest and gave it a mighty heave, breaking the chains one by one.
As he did so, he felts more bites - on his arms, one on his face, and the water took on a faint red tinge
second round of mysterious bites on pinpehlu: 1D6-1 = -1 = 2
(Pinpehlu takes 2 more points of stamina damage).
Holding the chest under one arm, he started climbing out of the well. As he did so, he saw a strange thing. Biting on his rhino leather vest was a two foot long snake - no an eel! - completely transparent, as if it was made of glass. He tried to grab it but it let go and fell back into the water, where its coloration made it essentially invisible. There must be at least half a dozen of these in the water...
Reading the top of the well, pulled up by his companions, Pinpehlu delivered the chest. He was wet and bloodied but otherwise ok.
The green metallic chest was locked and very heavy. However, while sturdy the lock was very simplistic, and a few minutes of poking was sufficient to defeat it.
The chest turned out to be so heavy because it was filled with water. However, inside there was something else - a rotting bag of what must have been a fancy fabric, and inside it, you found a ring of obsidian, about 1 inch in diameter, polished smooth. There seems to be faint runes buried under the surface.
How do you examine your find?
