    "Let's try something first." He says. He gets out his heavy crossbow, cranks back the mechanism and inserts a bolt. Then he takes aim for the center of the space in front of the door and fires.

    Attack, if necessary: (1d20+11)[31]

    edit: nice waste of a natural 20...

    "That could work... it seems the pit will be easily bypassed once the block falls from above..." the elf said.

    Well, not wasted...

    With accuracy even Halad could envy, Rukesh shoots a bolt dead center on the trap mechanism. The floor drops down as a large section of the ceiling above falls. There's no time to see how deep the pit is, and the block of stone falls neatly into it. After a few seconds there's a shattering crunch as it hits bottom, far beyond the vision of those looking.

    But now, there's simply a pit in front of the door, albeit less deep now.

    Drynch strokes his beard again, chuckles, then says, "I guess I could try Sound Lance. It might blast the door in, and would certainly make a lot of noise."

    "May as well try it Drynch." Rukesh says. "Otherwise we're not getting through the door today." He peers down into the pit. "I don't think filling that up with dead ettins is gonna do us any good."

    The Sound Lance rings out, the sonic force blasts the thick wooden door into splinters. Beyond is a large, dark, silent room. From their position the ceiling is too high to see, and they can't see the back part of the room. There's a balcony along both walls 15' above the floor.

    "We really can't get enough of a run for a good jump." Rukesh says. "But I'm willing to try it if you guys want to continue." He thinks back to any of the previous rooms to try and remember if they had run across anything that would work to bridge the pit. (Ettin room stone shelf maybe? How long was it?) "I suppose I could always jump back if it looks like there's too much to handle in there."

    OOC: DC to clear a 5 foot gap with less than a 20 foot run is 10. Rukesh can't fail that.

    Drynch grumbles as he gazes into the room, "Not sure I can jump that far from standing. But I could cast Enlarge on myself and step over it."

    Unless there's disagreement or other ideas, he'll cast it. Rukesh and Drynch enter with Halad at the corner?

    "More than one way to skin it, I suppose." Rukesh says. He jumps over the gap first, and enters the room and moves to the left to leave room for Drynch.

    Rukesh jumps over the pit with ease, then steps into the room to the left (R11).

    Drynch casts Enlarge Person and steps over the pit, then into the room to the right (T-U 10-11).

    They both see 10' further into the room, which remains the same.

    How tall is Drynch with the enlarge person? Can he see over the edge of the balcony?

    The spell doubles his height, so he's 8' tall. Not enough to see over the balcony.

    "You wanna give me a boost?" Rukesh says to Drynch, motioning to the balcony to his left.

    Is the balcony just more or less a ledge, or is there a railing of some sort along it? Between Drynch's and Rukesh's height, Rukesh should be able to pull himself up there if he's standing on Drynch's shoulders.

    If Drynch agrees, Rukesh will tell Halad to get in here.

    Yes, that could work.

    As Drynch moves toward Rukesh a tiny red bead of light streaks toward them from out of the darkness beyond rheir sight. It explodes into a ball of fire right in front of the doorway, engulfing all three in flames.

    Rukesh moves to the wall then north. He comes to a point (move action to there) where he can see the back of the room, and floating in the air 30' above the ground is a spectral, robed figure watching him.

    Rukesh stops at that point, and yells back to Drynch and Halad "Some sort of ghost or something floating up in the air!". He's got his sword in hand and shield up, but nothing really he can do at this point other than watch it. This kind of thing was usually in Drynch's wheelhouse.

    Weaving his hands and whispering incantations, the flying specter casts Hold Person on Rukesh.

    The elf takes three shots into the dark in rapid succession. While beyond his sight, Rukesh sees the arrows pass through the spectral form but can't determine whether they did any harm. The arrows splinter against the back wall.
