    You see that the room is covered in scorch marks, corroded surfaces, and shattered skeletons. There is a whole pile of treasure in a net in a top corner of the room, and a large spiral staircase going down in the center.
    This is the whole quote. The first part about the scorch marks and skeletons, while possibly from the oozes, worries me. I want to proceed with caution here. As far as the net part goes, I'm in the same position as Jeff. I thought it might be suspended from the ceiling as well, though that isn't exactly stated explicitly in the description. Can you clarify, Lateral?

    Yeah, sorry, it's hanging from the ceiling in a northeastern corner of the room.

    And you guys seem to be being very cautious. That's good.

    I hope she doesnt end up just shooting him. That would be inconvenient.

    Just playing up Ek'ann's Lawful Evilness. Save his people (and the world) by any means necessary. Those ends are always justified. He's not a bad guy, per se, just a very serious and very dedicated one.

    I'll roll a whole bunch of Spellcraft checks here to save time. I don't imagine there'll be more than 25 auras.

    Arapim is our magic item identifier, I believe, though there is the problem that it's only armor and weapons. I'll have to prepare Substitute Domain in the morning to get Identify for the belt and whatever is in with the jewels. I am so making that artificer monocle as soon as I can.

    Speaking of Arapim, has anyone heard from Gnomish? And do we have a backup plan if she doesn't return?

    Edit: Oh, and regarding what's in the bag, I don't like that it's evocation. What do y'all say to tying the sack to whatever the net was hanging from and then firing arrows at it until it's torn? That way if it is rigged to blow, the worst that will happen is we'll be out some treasure.

    Will do. Tomorrow.

    Ironically, she hasn't posted since that post that said she'd be back to a regular posting schedule. I'll keep running Arapim until either Gnomish comes back, or we recruit someone to take over the character.

    Actually, it might be better to wait until after we fight the invisible guys. If one of them had a divination aura I might ink differently, but Arapim has to spend 10 minutes per item, and probably has around a 50% chance of success. I have some limited duration buffs up I'd like to keep, unless we want to call it a day after, what, 10 minutes.

    (Speaking of time, how much has elapsed since we first arrived?)

    So... did he know the world was at risk? IS the world at risk? I thought we made that up to get past the statue. xD

    It's already been grabbed. The problem is that there's a bag of coins and gems and something radiating an Evocation aura at the bottom. If it does blow, only the jewels will be destroyed. If we just dig in and it's rigged to blow, we're out coins and HP.

    I'm on my phone, so this is a minimal update. We don't have to worry too much about the bag. It could be a necklace of fireballs or the like. As for the saving the world part, read Ek'ann's background. The situation fits his motivation perfectly.

    Neither I nor Ek'ann think it's the most prudent plan, but he will reluctantly agree if everyone else does, with his reservations noted on the record.

    Well, it cost us three potions. While a healthy dose of paranoia isn't a bad thing, shooting your treasure seem a tad excessive to me. I would have been willing to take the 10 mins per item for Arapim to identify them, and then employing whatever other divinations we had at the earliest opportunity.

    Blindsight has a range of 30', too small for me at least. Better for Ek'ann and Arapim to describe them to us so I can use Knowledge Devotion and tell us their positions. It's probably too small a range for effective scouting too, but I suppose we could try it.

    Actually, they'd only have been useful for sacrificing to either my bow or to create a magic item. It'd give 'Teia or Arapim +2 to damage, I suppose, and +1 to attack and damage for Ek'aan.
