Themis looked about the room and replied, "Doors tend not to be an area of expertise for me so, unless one of you wants to play with the trapped door, I would opt for the one that poses the least set of issues." He gestures to the door lacking the trap.

Nike Sparagmos
"Agreed, we'll just mark it and move on then." She didn't like the idea the most, but so far it was the only option they had. Hopefully there was an exit this way, or something that would move them out of danger.

"By the way I'm Nike, named after the goddess of Victory. I'm from Athens, fought in the Peliponesian wars and somehow got suckered into this quest by Hades when I was alive. Thinking about it now, seems like I picked the wrong quest, but I guess it's a bit late to be complaining." She uses her maul to scrape the stone next to the trapped door and moves on towards the next immediately opening it and stepping inside using her body as a bulwark against anything that might decide to attack the party.

"Ah an Athenian, nice to meet you Nike. My name is Themis I hale from Larissa. Although I have spent the last many a year far from my homeland roaming the Approximately the region now known as Austria and Southern Germanylands of the Celts. Yes I had heard of your demise, I am sorry that happened. Still if you were not dead you would not be here to help stop the great undoing that is coming."

Liara Dawnwalker
Liara stared at the door for a minute, but couldn't figure out what in the world she was looking at. Frustrated, she glanced over her shoulder at Nike and Themis and quipped with a half smile. "This is not a place I like to stand around to make new acquaintances..but I guess that is in order if we were to brave through the underworld together. I am Liara Dawnwalker. I used to be a member of the traveling troupe called the Daughters of the Veiled Moon...perhaps you've heard of us? We were in Athens quite often and we were quite famous." The maiden of mixed bloods smiled coyly. She then walked over to face the un-trapped door with the others. "But what do you mean 'stop the great undoing'? What can you tell us about the quest and the scepter? I literally have no idea what we are supposed to be looking for and why."

"Well from my understanding our current quest is to get out of here ali... hmm" he pauses as he thinks about that for just a moment then continues, "okay let me restate that, our current quest is to get past the guards and escape from here. Of course, I am not sure exactly what here is supposed to be as that was not clearly defined. As for your quest for that scepter thing, I have no knowledge as I was not part of that. So I am not sure what it is needed for but perhaps its needed to stop the coming great undoing and that... is also mystery. All I know about it, from the little bit that I could piece meal together from what the Celtic prophets envisioned, is that either Tartarus is going release its contents and we are going to have another gods war or something near Tartarus is going to release its contents. Either way if this undoing occurs there is going to be a lot of dead people on a scale that is going to make that war she fought," he gestures towards Nike who is just past the doorway checking things out, "look like a tiny brawl. So I came here to check things out, and find you guys because you are somehow part of the solution but only if we succeed at preventing this undoing which means we need to find out exactly what it might be so that we can figure out how to prevent it and that is about all I know."

Liara Dawnwalker
Liara's smiling face slowly turned into a frown as she listened to Themis. "That sounds like a lot of figuring out. I was hoping you knew more since you seemed to be more acquainted with...you-know-who." Clearly not wanting to say Hades' name out loud, she glanced back at the door they came out of. "So...we, the dead trio, are trying to escape the underworld to save the living world, is that it? Just so we might die again? This isn't fun at all!" She shook her head as she strummed the strings on her lute absent-minded.

"Well if you look on the bright side of this, the three of you," Themis waves a hand at the other three, "get to live again, if I understood Hades correctly. Oh and no for whatever reason, and I am sure its a good one, he has not enlightened me to any of this as of yet. Still mine is not to reason why, mine is just to do and/or die. My lot in life. It might not be a lot but it is my life, and I am good with it." He glances towards Nike, "You see anything up there Nike?"

As the party continues down the hallway they sense some(thing/one) watching them. But if of course they turn back , nothings there. After going thirty feet there's a a oath to the Left. Once you turn it takes twenty feet to hit a fork. While the right path is a dead end. The left path... What now

Nike Sparagmos
"I think I've heard of your group Liara and, although it has meant your death, I am glad to see a member of that fine troop here aiding our little heroic quest." Even as she said the last her thoughts went to other heroes like Achilles, Hercules, Odysseus, tormented and tortured by the gods and more. Being a hero was pretty muc the exact opposite of having a nice life somewhere. She wondered momentarilly if she could just go back to fighting the invading Persian armies. That would be a whole lot safer really.

She listened to the other two speak about the quest and noted that her information on everything had not increased appreciably. They were looking for some scepter that Hades wanted, escaping the Underworld, and now they were also trying to stop the 'Great Undoing' all of it felt terribly unfair, but life wasn't really fair was it?

She responded to the question of what was ahead by saying, "Dead end that way, looks like we're stuck going this way. We'll ah pretend I put my left hand on the wall in there. I don;t feel much need to actually run it along the wall just to keep the idea of it being there in mind. Which seems to remind me that we will need to eat and rest at some point. I don't have much in the way of rations and water, so do we just hope we find them or do we even actually need to eat or drink?"

Themis glanced down the dead-end hallway and wondered then said, "I do not suppose any of you are any good at finding hidden or concealed passages way?" Themis would have looked but the wilderness was his forte and he had no clue what to look for in situations like this. For all he knew it could be what appeared but having spend so much time with the fey he had learned that a seeming dead-end in actually hide a passage to wondrous place.

Liara Dawnwalker
At Themis' comment, Liara walked up to the dead-end hallway and start studying the wall again, murmuring, "I mean, I was good at finding out where rich ladies liked to hide their jewelries.."

The dragoness crossed her arms as Liara was searching the wall. She leaned against it and looked at the group, "Faewynn Krephos, one of the Fangs of the Freyja. For those who don't know, I'm highly ranked, but not too high. I took my fathers place in the Fangs of Freyja and hunted mighty beasts with my clan. When I heard about this quest, I was given blessing from our leader... What a failure I must look like."

Nike Sparagmos
Nike laughed at Liara's comment adding, "Seems as if Liara does, so we can let her take a look, though If I wore jewelery it would be right here." She patted her neck above her bosom, "Which just begs the question of exactly how deft your fingers are Liara, though perhaps we should not ask a woman to kiss and tell hmm?"

She continues to smile while she waits to see if there was atually something in the dead-end. Seemingly that was when the dragonborn decided to speak. "I'm sure your family would understand Faewynn, afterall it took a literal bolt from Zues himself to take you down. How many other of your kin can say they got into a fight with a god? Few for sure and just think if we survive you can add coming back from the dead to your list of accomplishments. Any clan would surely be impressed with that."

"Members of my clan have slain monsters three times their sizes, I should be able to kill a single man, no matter his spot on the power hierarchy." Faewynn grumbled, looking to the side

OOCHey, Themis, how's it feel to be traveling with two gorgeous waifu's?
