    I don't like being the first person to react to something >_<

    ...I read plenty of Pratchett...

    Actually, that's a good idea- Arapim's the team trap-checker, it would be logical for her to move first.

    First thoughts: instinctive reaction. Everyone has them.
    Second thoughts: Thoughts about reactions. Impressive people like Witches have them.
    Third thoughts: Thoughts about the way you think. Very rare. Protagonist level power.

    I know. Fourth thoughts: somebody else nagging at you to stop being so lost in your triple-thoughts.

    (To be fair, I haven't read any of the Tiffany Aching books in forever. Should get around to reading I Will Wear Midnight at some point.)

    It is. The wire's right in front of the rubble.

    Well, they're pretty tattered. The one across the west wall contains images of a humanoid figure (presumably a giant) fighting various monsters, and the one on the right depicts a battle between the giants and the Quori. The one on the north wall appears to be covered in writing, but you don't recognize it. Even if you could, though, you can tell that it's much too torn to translate.

    Will you guys be going towards or away from the green light?

    I dunno. At this point 'Teia's kind of just following Ek'ann. She doesn't have blind sight and she's not terribly tough.

    I fear we've stalled out. I posted IC last, but if no one does anything soon, I guess I'll just proceed.

    There are no creatures you know of with abilities consistent with what you have seen- as far as you can tell, they're unique. You have heard of people that have undergone extensive, specialized training to achieve this sort of effect, but no creature known to you is inherently capable of defeating such finely-tuned senses.

    You have no clue what it is. The torch bug paste only lets you see so much detail, and it doesn't have a particularly distinctive silhouette. Enough detail to see weak points, though, so Knowledge Devotion still applies.

    Well, there are a number of monsters that have natural invisibility like that of these creatures, but none of them that you know of behave or look like this monster. From what you can see, it looks kind of... unnatural, like an almost Frankenstein-like patchwork shape; it's possible, given what you know about this place, that this is one of those experiments gone feral.

    By the way, I was working on the IC earlier tonight, and then my monitor broke. It's just a faulty cable, so it'll only be a couple days at most, but there'll be a bit of a delay.

    Some combination of fire, cold, and light. Since the (entirely justified) nerf, it's kinda unclear.
