Harsk & Trynne
left-aligned image
It’s surely with some effort, that dwarf and canine move away the sludgy mass of a fallen creature.

Getting the monster well out of the doorway to their right, Harsk peruses the floor to find a small pile of treasure items. “Well,” the druidic dwarf says. “’Ere be a silver sword, n’ a chain shirt o’ mystical ma’teer-al. Anyone wish to claim ‘em? I...I ‘erd a whisperin’ voice. Somethin’ ‘bout…a witch.”

As the diary is shared with the party, Harsk ducks. Just as a volley of pots and pans fly forth from the kitchen!

Keloryn takes a moment to look through the diary before stepping into the kitchen. Perception: 15Looking around carefully, the wizard speaks out, "Eleanor, are you here? Can we do anything to help?"

Sensinn OroSensinn clapped the diary closed in his hands after reading it. As the last one to be caught up on the tawdry and unnerving tale of Lady Eleanor, he stowed the diary and stepped through the door along with the others. Taking note of the druid's apparent findings, Sensinn spoke out into the room, to anyone who happened to be listening.

"Lady Eleanor, please do come out now. It does none of us any good if you just hide and whisper..."

Even though he doubted he would need it, Sensinn's hand reached towards one of the pouches on his armor, hovering over the one he knew to contain incense. When the objects in the kitchen began whirling around, Sensinn was only hit with a couple of pots and pans, which just bounced off his chest. The Paladin let out a sigh.

"Eleanor, please do try to restrain yourself. It is unbecoming of you to throw such a tantrum. Come, and let us speak of what ails you."

Eerily calmThe storm of cookware ends as abruptly as it began, cast iron clattering to the floor. The elf and lizardfolk both call out, but no response can be seen or heard. Whatever was there has gone and left an eerie silence in its place. Trynne settles down, sniffs into the kitchen, and then turns away disinterested. The room seems lifeless, and you see nothing else of note.

Keloryn waits for a few moments, but when no further response comes, shrugs his shoulders and turns to leave the kitchen. "Whatever or whoever that was, it had a purpose in leading us to this diary. We'll probably be seeing more of it." The wizard stashes the diary in his pack and crosses the hall into the chapel,

searching the room for anything of interest.

Harsk & Trynne
left-aligned image
Storing away the mithral shirt and silver sword into his pack and along his brown belt, Harsk eventually makes his way over to Tyrnne. Patting his canine companion upon her furry head, the druidic dwarf waits for Trynne to settle down, before exuding a customary dwarven grunt.

“Hmph.”

Following his wizardly companion into the chapel, Harsk aids Keloryn in conducting a thorough search of the hallowed chamber.

ChapelThe group spends a few minutes scouring the chapel. The benches collapse when even slightly moved. The walls are somewhat intact, although you can sense movement beneath your feet. With a little consideration it dawns on you that the giant spider tunnel seemed to lead beneath this area of the castle.

Trynne begins to look anxious and growls at the podium while slowly retreating from it. Atop it, pages in a book (was the book there before?) begin flipping furiously. They stop, and the tension leaves the room.

The book appears to be both legal and religious in nature. The temple must have had a strong influence in the judiciary process. The specific page details the procedure for executing a witch, namely burning at the stake.

You see a shelf about half way down the podium and find what remains of an amulet stashed there. It is an iron sphere, about an inch in diameter. Gold inlay highlights the various symbols that cover it. You notice a recessed area that you would assume to be a setting for a missing gem or crystal.

Keloryn stepped up to the podium to examine the book, and furrowed his brow as he read. "It might be nothing, but this dictates a witch should be burned, whereas according to Lord Pemberton the accused was hung. It could also be the faulty memory of either an old woman or a young child..."

Spotting the amulet, the wizard spent a few moment examining it intently. "Inert, and more divine than arcane... Perhaps you might want to hold onto this Ban?"

Sensinn OroStepping through the door to the chapel, Sensinn placed a gauntlet-covered hand on one of the benches to push it aside. To his surprise, the very wood came apart under his hand, instead leaving him holding a thin piece of wood. Looking between his companions to make sure they didn't see him embarrassing himself, he instead resorted to stepping over the rotten benches rather than moving them.

Pausing at seeing the book flipping open, Sensinn pulled himself up towards the podium to examine the book as well.

"Oh... Witch burning. Terrible thing, that. This place just gets better and better, doesn't it?"

Taking a quick glance at the amulet, Sensinn couldn't help but shrug. He wasn't exactly an archaeologist, after all.

Chapel...The skittering feeling beneath the floorboards becomes more unsettling. Fairly certain that the room has been scoured and that your presence is drawing the attention of the creatures below, you make your way to the throne room. To the left is a door leading to a stairwell. The stone stairs go both up and down. It seems that there was once a similar structure on the right, but the opening has collapsed on itself.

The room itself is eerily empty. Despite the decay and disrepair, it is easy to see how beautiful it must have been. The throne is finely made, and seems to have survived the years rather well. The upholstery is ruined and a few empty settings indicate where once there had been gems, but you feel that it would still support your weight. Yes, even Sensinn's...

Sensinn Oro"Heh, yes I suppose the spiders would be more than willing to accommodate our lack of interest, friend. Let us go, then."

The lizardman said before readying his sword once more and taking point first up the stairwell. His heavy footfalls echoing throughout the castle as he ascended to the next floor, weapon raised.

As you exit the stairwell you see a large, ornate hallway. Well, it was once ornate. The remains of banners and tapestries litter the walls, periodically accentuated by sconces. In the center of the hallway are large double doors. You can assume that these lead to the royal bedchamber. At the far end of the hallway is the corresponding stairwell that you could not enter from the throne room.

You find that the doors are locked. You watch as Trynne backs away from them, growling through snarled lips. The behavior is strange, but telling. You hear movement from within, but not the way you would normally expect. The sound is similar to wind blowing through trees. A certain unease crawls over you as you listen.

Keloryn watched Trynne's behavior with interest. "It looks like our friend is on the other side of that door. Can anybody open it?" While he waited for a response, the wizard took some time to

inspect the tapestries and wall sconces, occasionally reaching up to give a tug on one of them. "I've read about these, it would be most fascinating to find a secret room." he said, mostly to himself.
