    "They really are hard to kill!" Percival boomed, stomping down again.

    Kali continued to assist, pummeling the disgusting bug. "That is what they're known for."

    "Yes, but the last roach I fought died in one strike."


    "The last roach you fought was the size of my thumbnail."

    Cotyledon was shocked that she managed to finish off one of the enormous insects; fighting was not her forte.

    Still choked up on the glaive, so no need to move.

    Attack: (1d20+6)[24]

    With a resoundingly satisfying crunch, the roach finally gave up the ghost as her glaive bisected the oversized arthropod.

    Henrietta will first take 20 on perception for 27 to try and spot anything dangerous/hidden in the tiles. Then, she will step on the horse's head first, then the rapier, then the feathery wings.

    Stepping onto the horse's head, a slight buzz reached Henrietta's ears a second too late, and she screamed as she fell back, electricity coursing through her body.

    "Okay. So, not the horse's head first."
    She looked back at the others. "If it's all the same to you, I'd rather not try that again."

    "I feel like the mites tried to brute-force a solution and those corpses are the error part of their trial." The fancy man frowned, but as Henrietta was still living, he just shrugged and sat down on the stone.

    "Puzzle's a bit rubbish, isn't it? It didn't even give us all the rules. Do you step on just three tiles to cross or do you have to step on every one that applies? Not really fair to give us a game and not explain the rules, love." He began laying out a Harrow spread from his good deck of cards. Fine, sturdy things with more ink and gilding than a wizard's spellbook. No explanation for who was his 'love'.

    Roslar's Tomb

    Whether it was divine guidance from above, or a spark of insight, Vesper stepped on the correct tiles. There was a pause after his bow, and then the altar quietly slid back along with the panel beneath, revealing its treasure. There, untouched by dirt or time, was a sparkling mithral breastplate accompanied by a masterwork steel heavy shield. Both were emblazoned with a red-winged rapier, the symbol of Arazni.

    Henrietta groaned from where she was lying on the ground as she saw Vesper get the tile combination correct on his first try.

    "'ve course it happened to me..."


    As the altar slid back, she eased herself back up into a standing position, and couldn't help but give a quiet whistle in awe. She looked to the rest of the party.

    Henrietta narrowed her eyes at Vesper.

    "Perhaps you've forgotten, but currently everything else living we've seen so far has tried to kill us. Forget selling the thing, I need the armor for protection until we can get out of this mess. And given how everything's gone so far, we're bound to run into something much larger and meaner than the bugs we've been dealing with so far. If you're that torn over selling the damn thing, we can discuss that if we escape. If I'm going to be in the front keeping everything from biting us, I deserve some proper protection."

    "Yeah, I don't really do armor. Gets in the way of the magic."

    Vesper shuffled his cards in the air, then held out the deck. "Come on. All you melee folks have a draw. High card wears the fancy armor out of the store."

    Roll 1d13 for rank and 1d4 for suit. Reroll if you got the same result as someone who's already drawn. A 1 is an ace, so that's actually the best draw. Suit is irrelevant.

    Bellas

    Bellas eyed Vesper suspiciously as though she couldn't decide whether he had deduced the puzzle solution through cleverness or luck.

    "We could all do with a bit more protection, I think." Her response to Henrietta's query was resigned but she'd be rather foolish to not take the chance to upgrade her armor. She sauntered over to Vesper and waved his handkerchief back at him.

    "You do magic? I hadn't noticed." The corner of her lips quirked into an amused grin as she plucked a card from the offered deck.

    Cotyledon's flower petal face fluttered in a strange wave, as if a pebble had been dropped in a pool of still water.
    "Most impressive. Very clever. It would have taken me... time... to solve that puzzle. Although I was concerned it was necessary to escape this place somehow, not merely a lock for more... loot. Well done... card... jester... guy? What is your name? Why haven't all of you shared your name yet? I did right away. I thought it was polite? Or did that go out of style at some point?"

    "Oh." The man frowned, then offered a wan, optimistic smile. "People call me Vesper. I mean, because I ask them to, obviously. I'm not famous. A little? Not a lot. Not around here anyway."

    He was certainly dressed like a Varisian, maybe a performer too. He had a Harrow deck as well. His actual ethnicity was a mystery though. If forced to venture a guess, most people would say 'all of them?' and be half right.
