    I hurry towards the wall, trying to realize if it is an illusion or perhaps a smoke screen, since there doesn't appear to be any possible source of the bolts that were fired earlier.

    technically speaking Dimension step, at least the version im reading, would only allow axile to teleport past the wall due to the line of sight thing.
    but i'm waiving that for this round.


    Everyone rushes to the wall, Ori along it to where everyone else is, and Mariel casts her spell. Glittering runes briefly cover the feet of everyone and, more quickly than the eye can blink, they find themselves in a long narrow corridor with arrow slits facing out every 20' on one side and stairwells down on either side.

    A crossbowman lies dying here in a puddle of its own blood. Its mouth has been sewn shut.

    Initiative order is dissolved for the time being.



    Ori clasps a hands to one of the several fresh gashes in her side. It glows softly and the flesh knits itself neatly together, leaving not even a scar. Her torn bandage-like apparel over the spot does not mend however.

    I remain silent for a while examining the stuff of the guy that we have dropped. As far as I know Bill's crossbow was magical, and thus better than the one in the ground, even if it is a repeating one. I take the crossbow and put it aside on the backpack for later use, or to sell it.

    -Well I am not really fond of exploring places, where people might we waiting and reading an ambush. But... why don't we make sure that we have a way out? This corridor must connect somewhere to an exit, and that will probably be close to the door from which we started. It will be a detour and take us some time, but if we have to run we will know in which direction. Otherwise, if time is pressing I don't have a problem on going deeper.

    I look at my familiar and caress its feathers while thinking.

    -Casker can you fit through those arrow slits? Could you check if someone is in the room in which we were before?

    I shrug, that works.

    I smile at the elf wizard, even if I have a knack for magic I try to not rely on it, and I must admit that the possibility of just teleporting out didn't cross my mind.

    The party reaches the northern stairwell down and proceeds down it, arriving in a wider room with five beds evenly spaced along the wall, each with a footlocker. A fountain trickles water into a deep and wide basin in the far corner of the room.
    The only obvious exit is a stairwell up at the south end of the room.

    After Axile fails to trigger any potential traps, Mariel heads over an investigates the objects found, checking the thread count of the robes, and trying to determine if the boots have been worn. She also tries to see if she can identify any magical items among the abandoned items in the room, and she searches the room, hoping to find some clue as to what happened here.

    Hopefully a spellcraft of 28 without a roll will let me determine if an item is magica.

    "Well, that's disappointing. But where are the wearers of the boots? or the crossbows to go with those bolts? I have a bad feeling about this. Still, we might as well continue. Andrann, lead the way."

    Mariel follows Andrann down the staircase at the south end of the room.

    "Pitiful..." Andrann says as he sighs at Axile. "Always after the other boy's toys, aren't you, kid?" he would ask, although he knew checking through the footlockers was a good idea to get a look at who stayed here and what was left behind. It was always good to know whether these footlockers were ravaged before or not, as well, but Andrann chose not to speak of reason but of honor for now.

    I smile as I have an idea, I might be able to wear those clothes, and disguise myself as an Asimar that will surely keep some arrows from getting to close to myself.

    -Give me a second.

    I take my boots of and put them on the bag at my back, and help myself with some looted boots, even if they don't fit properly at the moment my feet are going to change pretty soon. I take one of the robes and pull it over myself. Whispering the lines of the spell.

    -May my form be true, when the moment is due.

    After the incantation takes effect I move the robe covering me to hide my mouth and follow the others.
