    Default [Group 2] The World's Largest Dungeon - IC

    Brought together by rumors of a truly massive dungeon, the group has been traveling for about a week, up into the hills to the far northeast of the town they met in. The rumors say that recent earthquake activity opened up an entrance to this area. Your group set off hoping to find this entrance.

    As the afternoon wears on, you come upon what appears to be a fresh opening in the side of the hill you are climbing up. The opening leads to a cave.

    1.) Everyone spreads out
    2.) Elia checks the door for traps, and disarms, if applicable
    3.) Kulkav uses his tower shield for full cover, then opens the door, as he has the best odds to survive any leftover traps, at least at low level. In addition, his bulk and tower shield should make it very difficult for any dangerous foe within to get off a surprise attack at our group.

    Fredric will follow a fair distance behind Elia, allowing the rogue to scout ahead.

    "It could be, we are in roughly the right place... Or it could be just another crack. The quakes certainly wreaked havoc across the area, so it may take a fair bit to find the opening we're hoping for." Fredric replies.

    Mother nature playing yet another prank on us? Could be... though the same prank repeated over and over again would become somewhat boring. I, for one, really hope that we find a entrance to this mysterious dungeon as soon as possible.

    Kulkav brings up the rear, for the moment. His titanic glaive is held with both talons, ever battle-ready. His newly-draconic lip curls in a jovial grin.

    "Well, so long as I get half of what remains, I suppose that's acceptable."

    "You know, Kulkov, a part of me would would disagree with that method of dividing the rewards..." he gives a meaningful look at Kulkov's glaive, "But then another, larger, part of me suspects that any disagreement between myself and that tree trunk of yours is likely to be somewhat one sided." He smiles. "Besides, if this dungeon proves to be even half of what the bards are singing about, we shall doubtless all come away well rewarded... Even if it is only with a pair of wings, and a single pass portal to the celestial planes."

    Kulkav's eyes widen in mock surprise.

    "Fredric, have you ever known me to turn my weapons against a friend? Now, I may arm-wrestle you for it..."


    His grin widens a bit, and he slaps his comrade on the back.

    "Regardless, you're right; this seems as though it will be quite a worthy challenge."

    The smaller man staggers under the dragonborn's blow, but he comes up smiling.

    "Ahhh, I wager I'd lose that contest too." Fredric says, rubbing his shoulder.

    "Still, we need to find the dungeon before we decide how to spend the gold."

    He looks up ahead, "Where's Elia gotten off to?"

    The cave is relatively small, only 20'x30'. Inspecting the floor of the cave, Elia sees numerous tracks in the dirt. The tracks appear to be from many creatures, small and large. Following the tracks, they lead to a tunnel in the back of the cave that goes deeper into the hills.

    Keeping his eyes open, Elia proceeds to move cautiously through the tunnel after inspecting the cave properly. If he sees something unusual he inspects it. He also tries to gage the freshness of the tracks and tries to remember if any of his partners had skills in this department.

    Also Elia makes little dance moves which he does sometimes when nervous, but nobody knows about it since he's pretty stealthy about it.

    "You and your gold... what if all thats to gain there there is knowledge?" he says and pauses for a moment."But if theres any gold, I want my fair share!"

    Then he walks a few steps forward to see where Elia is. "Hmm. Sniffing around, as always." he mumbles something unintelligible about whisper gnomes and noses and seems fairly amused. "Ey! Look! That tunnel - looks like we've found the dungeon!"

    "Indeed knowledge is a stable market commodity... And a little bit of knowledge can often be stretched much further than a similar portion of gold might."

    Fredric comes into the mouth of the cave, just behind Taribo.

    "My, but this does look promising. Taribo, if you'd be so kind as to remove the hood from your torch, that the poor eyed among us might see as well, I would certainly appreciate it."

    As he speaks Fredric absently removes the dagger at his hip, an old polishing cloth, and a small vial of yellowish oil, and proceeds to apply the oil and cloth to the blade.

    I meant I'd be exploring the rest of the tunnel if there was nothing of interest in the cave, just wanted to make sure of that first.

    Kulkav tromps up to Taribo and Fredric, and peers forward.

    "Well, I'll be... it seems so. Well done, Elia!"


    Holding his glaive in one hand, Kulkav reaches into his pack, and draws out a torch that is already alight, before strapping it to the side of his pack, resulting in a hands-free, apparently non-burning torch.

    "So, any objections to just heading in?"

    "Ah yes, lets bring some light into the shadows..." Taribo pulls the hood from his everburning torch and straps it to the side of his pack in the same fashion as Kulkav. Then he pulls his light crossbow out.

    "Indeed, after you, big fella. But don't worry I've got ur back!" he says as he waves his crossbow around.

    After about 300' of traveling the tunnel, you come upon a finished stonework wall with a 15' gap in it. The floor transforms from rough dirt and stone to finished flagstones.

    "Moradin's Hammer, would you look at that..." Fredric swears softly, "Where's a dwarf when you need one, eh?"

    He peers through the gloom at the meticulous stone work.

    "We must be nearly a hundred feet down, and no sign of such workings above..."

    He pauses for a moment,

    "I might point out, if anyone was having second thoughts about this venture, now would be a good time to voice them."

    I sense people having doubt and continue going forward at maximum speed, except I'm also keeping my eyes open, being stealthy and searching everything (including the wall) as I go, so it's not really max speed. Also I'm not really good at reading other people, so I don't really sense anyone having doubt anyway.

    Through the gap it is!

    Elia moves around the room, achieving an amazing feat of moving stealthily and jerkily at the same time. He finds nothing of interest, the room is 75'x75' with doors in the northwest and southeast corners.

    Note that the shading on the map is actual lighting, bright vs. dim. Also, if you need to see someone's field of vision at anytime I can easily post a POV map for that player.

    Kulkav enters the room, making a game of stepping only where Elia has already set foot. Given his substantially larger frame, this does restrict his mobility considerably.
