    "Uuugh! She said she has no reason to attack us, what are you still waiting on?! Let her out already so we can get back to dwarf hunting!" Celesta complains to Feagon, then looks to Suga and rolls her eyes in Tarak's direction.

    Still standing just outsid the doorway, he Feagon repeats to Idalla "I would have your promises that no harm would come to me and my friends through any action or inaction of yours before I free you. Will you give that? Because you twisted your words about. Speak this and be free.", practically growling it out.

    "You can't really make it conditional like that. That wasn't in the spell," Idalla says as she walks slowly toward the door.

    Assuming no one immediately tries to attack or stop her, she steps over the threshold and sighs in relief. "At last. Rejoice in the knowledge that this was the least bad choice you had, young elf; I would never have let you leave me there. Sometimes a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Now, I'd offer you a friendly kiss, but I have a wizard to track down. Perhaps we'll meet again later." She clasps her hands in front of her chest and disappears in a burst of dark red flame.

    Feagons eyes smolder for a few moments before he closes them with a shake of his head. "I suppose I would have done the same again, given the choice. But, I still don't enjoy the dung taste left on my tongue." as he just nods at Celesta.
    "Alright, dwarves instead of sorcerer's. I just hope we either never run into her again... or have the chance to right any wrongs my choice today made."

    Tarak

    The hobgoblin claps Feagon on the shoulder, "You did what you thought was right, there's no crime in that. I have no idea who or what she was, merely that she was more than she appeared to be. We'll likely never know for certain. Come on let's finish the grim business."

    Looking at Celesta and Suga, Tarak shakes his head for a moment and mutters, "Hunting indeed."

    He moves over to the door in and does a quick search for traps before ascertaining whether or not it's locked.

    The elf just arches an eyebrow at Suga before going into the other room.
    As he looks around, he points to where he remembers the magic emanating from. "Might want to check there with a bit of hesitation. Some different types of magic was shown by my spell."

    Tarak

    The hobgoblin places his hands over his eyes, and mutters a simple incantation. When he lifts his hands, his eyes glow with a soft-blue light. Stepping over to the bookshelves he slowly scans the area for residual magic.

    Once he's retrieved the magical writings, he peers into both of the adjacent rooms...taking a moment to see if any ancient magical artifacts remain from the once formidable dwarven stronghold.

    "Well. Looks like a dead end to me."

    The scrolls are alarm, alter self, reduce person and shield.

    After picking at the lock for two minutes, Tarak is finally satisfied that it's sufficiently damaged that the best locksmith on Oerth couldn't get it to function. It will need to be ripped off if the door is ever to open again.

    The hobgoblin shrugs, "I dunno, the lock is completely shredded. There's no chance of opening it that way. You could try to batter it down, but it's a pretty stout door. I don't particularly feel like I should blow my scroll on this door....considering this entire wing of rooms appear to be abandoned."

    Behind Suga's back, Feagon grins but knows he could do no better bringing the door down.
    "Our luck is that is the door that has the only thing of real value in this wing.
    Well, we can come back later and give another try, if we feel the need. We can move on, for now, I think."

    Celesta's push breaks the lock and the door swings open.

    Rows of empty weapon racks and a dozen or more stands for missing suits of armor indicate that this room was once an armory. Some debris litters the floor--wrecked stands and hacked arming dummies--but nothing of value is readily apparent.
