    Jean gives the door a solid kick, hoping to un-stick it.

    “Someone seems to have barricaded this door. Let me see if I can get it open. Stand ready!” Brother Jaume sqares up to the door and kicks it strongly on the hinge side, twice.

    Brother Jaume, despite his immense strength and power, doesn't even dent the door!

    “Odd. Blocked solid or mayhap it is a magical barrier of some kind?” Brother Jaume makes a complex series of gestures and spoken prayer.

    "Or just stuck." Jean says, experimentally pulling on the door just in case they were both being gifted children.

    Brother Jaume does not detect magic.

    Jean is unable to muscle the door open. It's not locked, but stuck beyond his ability to budge it.

    It is mainly Lord Hanley's show at this point, and like a testy cook not wanting other folks to stick their fingers in his pot, he chases people away from the ordering system he uses. He explains he is not trying to arrange the Records Room .... there are peasants that are paid to do that sort of thing, after all ... but he has noticed patterns and he is using those patterns to help find some things of interest.

    And "of interest," definitely, are the things he finds, as he has segregated several files wherein there was a date with a mass admissions of several persons: 24 Arodus 4716 AR. And of that date, several are of particular interest!

    Weight: 194 lbs.
    Hair: Black
    Eyes: Brown
    Religion: NOREFLPREF
    * Count Lowls stated that Px claimed that “Islam” was his religion. It is admitting physician’s belief that Count Lowls was describing a possible God-complex delusion of Px, since that is his middle name?

    Note: Px has pet male raven named Asarale that will be kept collared in basement until disposition can be determined.

    Patient Name: Blackminer, Dorn Krolaeg
    * His middle name and last name are apparently dwarven. He claims to have been adopted by dwarves.

    Patient Name: Macabee, Benjamin David

    Patient Name: Pavesi, Gherardo Flaviano
    Title: “Ex-monsignore” (lost title, meaning unknown).
    “Padre” (means “father” in Abyssal, a possible clerical title, and one it seems was a former honorific that was demanded for some unknown reason), yet reports say that this sociopath was gleeful in being called Padre while in the commission of violent acts.
    Count Lowls also gave a ridiculous title that meant nothing to us, but demanded it be written: “Ex-Assistente del Cardinale Carlo Rezzonico, Cardinale al Santo Padre, Papa Pio VI.” All gibberish, and I tire of this long day of the Counts’ ridiculous demands and all of these amnesiacs coming into admissions.

    Title: “Fire Controlman, Second Class, U.S.N.”

    Brother Jaume turns to the group in an agitated manner, “What does it all mean? We amnesiacs were admitted (as part of a larger group) by Count Lowls on the same day ...but what does it mean?! Why cannot I remember!”

    “We need to take some time to dwell on what all this means, but later. For now let us explore more of this nightmare and bring all the mysteries to light. The door at the end of the corridor is blocked and we were unable to open it. We have explored this area except the yellow fog corridor. I think we should return to the chapel and strike out to the North.” The big man rolls his shoulders, anxious to be off.

    Though he recognizes and could comment on a full half the names in this list, Jean's thoughts are consumed by just two. Bardakçı, Adezimeh İslam. Asarale. Adezimeh İslam Bardakçı. Asarale. He says the words over and over again, trying to make them familiar - give them the meaning he feels like they should have. What did those words mean? Islam? He was... religious? That... made sense, in some strange twisted way. There had always been something more than math. And Javer- Asarale.

    What an appropriate name you have. I doubt I picked it.

    He reached over and scratched the back of its head.

    Dorn shakes his head at Brother Jaume's suggestion. "No, friend. This find is something very important, indeed. This is 'proof of life' for us, and needs to go back to Winter right away. After that, we can dither about heading up the northern passageway."

    So, do you want to explore right away per Brother Jaume's suggestion, or return to Winter to report, per Dorn's suggestion?

    “The words there spark no insight or memories in me. As for proof of life, I am not convinced we are alive. However, without further proof to the contrary, this existence feels real enough for me. The chapel is on the way North ...” The big man rubs the short stubble growing on his head and sighs heavily.

    As Brother Jaume seems to have had a navigational aneurysm, Dorn leads the group back to the Chapel.

    After showing Winter the various files of all those who were admitted 24 Arodus 4716 AR, she looks to the group. "Strange, there are so many names here, but so few of you here representing them. Let's see, we have ...

    " ... Adezimeh İslam Bardakçı, and his pet raven Asarale,"
    she says looking to Jean ...

    " ... Dorn Krolaeg Blackminer. Wow, Dorn is not an entirely uncommon name so I didn't think about it," she says, looking at Dorn, "but come to think of it I heard the title 'Saint Dorn the Protector' in relation to some business in the northern counties, like a town called Ravengro or something like that, a few years ago ...

    " ... Brother Jaume Pau Brodeur ...

    " .... I knew your name was a joke name, Miss Nadya Sabay,"
    she says, looking at the lady with the yellowish complexion "... which is Varisian for 'I don't know.' So, your name is actually Krisztina Boyka Marquering...

    " ... and lastly, Akbar 'Wmadhahala' Qyzlibash."


    She seems a little confused. "Lord Hanley, did you find your record?"

    Lord Hanley says, "Sorry, I was focused on the '24 Arodus 4716 AR' admittances. Besides, I didn't have amnesia like these folks here, and I came here earlier than they."

    Jea- Adez leaves that for the moment - he'll question the strange little dwarf privately later, when they were not surrounded by patients. "I am more than able to continue exploring, if others have the strength?"

    Actually, Lord Hanley clued you into something exciting he found, and the final gathering of those files pretty much ate up the rest of the day. Winter wants the group to stay on hand as dinner will be served soon and because the patients feel better with the heroes nearby during the night.A

    Anything particular to do for the evening? Or move forward?

    “Madame Winter, are there any patients that you know of who were admitted after us in the chapel?” asks Brother Jaume politely.

    Later, BJ will tend to his flock checking on each member of the party for illness or injury before moving on to the larger chapel community. He will save a spell to commute water to wine and he will study his remove paralysis scroll (finally) before bed.

    Winter looks very icily at Brother Jaume, which somehow still looks beautiful, probably because of her small, severe features. "I am not a madame, brother. You may accept the familiar I've given you - 'Winter,' or, if you need appropriate formality, then 'Miss Klaczka,' or even 'Dr. Klaczka.' But I hope we are beyond that by now."

    Anyone else?

    Chagrined, Brother Jaume half bows to Winter. “My appologies, friend. I meant no offense.”

    She softens some and then adds, "It's okay, and I respect the respect that was intended, Brother Jaume. I just want us to be clear on proper address."

    Later, Brother Jaume will tend to his flock checking on each member of the party for illness or injury before moving on to the larger chapel community. Of course, he still has filth fever himself (just with the symptoms abated by magic). Unfortunately, he also sees the sniffles and such that Lord Hanley is currently showing means he will fully show filth fever tomorrow as well. This means that Brother Jaume and Lord Hanley must both segregate themselves from the rest of the community, and Winter is given a report. As such, it may come down to making a choice as to who gets what magic she can spare tomorrow. In fact, Winter will hold Brother Jaume from checking the rest of the community, doing that herself so that Brother Jaume's current ailment does not spread.

    Because he is sick and cannot ethically work with communal food and drink, Brother Jaume prays for an hour and then casts enhance water so that at least himself and his fellow patient may enjoy the medicinal properties of wine. It is very likely that Brother Jaume has a little too much, and having already deciphered his scroll of remove paralysis calls it a night.

    Nadya will go to Akbar and seek some assistance in controlling some of her magical powers. It turns out, Akbar, that she is also a sorceress, and after some testing she seems to be as powerful as yourself (so maybe with not quite as much confidence).

    Her spells, as she knows them are:
    Cantrips: daze, detect magic, disrupt undead, false blink, mage hand, read magic, ray of frost.
    1st Level: heightened awareness, shield.

    Jean simply spends his time, not even in actual meditation so much as a reverie, lost on the dark thoughts within ...

    Dorn cloisters himself in prayer before the shrine of Torag.

    The night passes, and again, despite all of the horror that has taken Briarstone Asylum, the PCs know nothing but peaceful, restful dreams.

    DAY 12

    The heroes awake for a new day! As Brother Jaume predicted, Lord Hanley has indeed fallen ill to filth fever (3 DEX, 2 CON). Unfortunately, mainly because he doesn't think about animals, Brother Jaume sees that Javert/ Asarale has developed an avian form of the same (2 DEX, 3 CON)!

    As far as Brother Jaume ...

    First, roll a Heal check for yourself vs. DC 13 to see how well you did for yourself the night before in treating disease.

    Then, roll a Fort save vs. DC 13 to see if you if you kicked the disease. If your Heal check made the DC 13, I will add +4 to the Fort save. You can roll here or in Discord (on the SA-G1 channel only).

    Also, in the morning, Brother Jaume seems to have shaken off the remains of filth fever. He wakes up with only a little bit of stiffness in the joints remaining (still down 1 DEX).

    So, that means Brother Jaume is a little stiffer than normal, but Lord Hanley and Javert are below peak (and Javert is actually pretty weakened now).

    So, what's the plan for today ... and I need reports from Brother Jaume and Jean once their spells are set up for the day.
