    I don't have a torch on me, so that's not an option. But is there one in the room? You said there was dim light, but didn't say what it was from.

    Do I see any sign that there's more light at the end of the hallway?

    There aren't any torches around you. You remember the room was brighter before the beast was knocked out, but there still seems to be some light. As you look around, you can't identify the source. You step into the hallway to look for a torch there, but there are none. Looking back you see that the room has grown more dim, and the hallway in front of you is brighter. It seems there is the faintest bit of light following you.

    "Well, I'm braving the fire." Deon mutters. "But maybe it isn't that scary."

    Deon walks back into the new hallway, shutting the door behind him so that he's more likely to hear if the beast follows him.

    Is the light still following him? Can he still see?

    The light seems to continue to follow you. As you walk forward, you are able to see further and further into the tunnel. After about 10' down the hall you notice that at the far edge of your view it seems to be darker, almost like the hall is widening.

    With that low modifier, I better pray for a high roll.

    Well, at least now I'm using my high stat.

    (1d20+3)[11]

    Edit: And I'm hoping that relatively high modifier is enough, since the dice still don't like this character.

    You cough as you exhale. You can feel the slight burn down your throat, and it hurts. You know it can't be good for you given the stinging pain, but it doesn't seem to have any last effects currently. You continue down the hall and the hall does indeed open up into a large room. You can see a faint flickering in the distance.

    As you approach the glow it becomes brighter. You realize the hall has expanded into a large room. The glow is coming from a campfire in the far corner. The closer you get the larger it looms. It appears as if it is more bonfire than campfire.

    As you approach, you notice the flames are licking the ceiling, taller than any humanoid you've ever seen. This is most definitely a bonfire.

    As you look around you are in a large, triangleish room. The hallway you came from is in the middle of the room, although the corners seem to extend beyond the wall where the doorway is. It is in the opposite corner that the fire resides, now looming large and burning intently. Nothing has changed much since you entered, other than the fire is now brighter and larger than before. The fire seems to be maintaining its size, spreading light throughout the room.

    Deon stops walking and hesitates for a second.

    "Brave the fire..."

    He sighs, starts walking again, and doesn't stop until either he's reached the edge of the fire, or it has reached him. He still has his club out.

    (Bold move cotton! *Edit* I'm really excited. I've enjoyed DMing this so far. And I am really happy to finally get to type up this post!! I hope you've been enjoy the game thus far as well.)

    As you step forward you can feel the heat of the fire. You brace yourself against the pain, hoping your convictions are correct. You can feel the heat moving up the club into your hand as you approach with it out in front of you. As you get closer to the fire you can see it charring and starting to ignite. You grit your teeth and press forward. You take the first step into the fire, you can feel the heat searing your flesh (take (1d10)[9]). You instinctually draw your face back as you feel the flames lick it before pressing onwards. As your face passes through the flame you feel a cool breeze on the other side. You can see the flame all around you, but it is cooler on the inside and doesn't cause harm. You have just a moment of thought before your second leg passes through the flame, and you stand completely within it. As your foot comes to rest on the wood, the world goes black.

    You hear a faint familiar voice in the back of your mind, barely above a whisper as if it is far, far away. "Look. He's passed the first test."

    You hear a booming, deep voice. It is thunderously loud, but also a whisper. The voice chuckles sinisterly, but there is a cheerful feel to it as well. "Do you value strength or endurance?"

    (I have been enjoying this, and I'm glad you are too, but... that last bit of damage puts me at negative four hit points. Heck, nine points would have taken me from full to zero. Is that a problem, or does whatever just happened heal me?)

    (I'll say you are in that brief instant before the damage has taken full effect for now and you can respond, but not move or take any actions. I'll add another descriptive post after you take an action or say something, or feel free to answer and RP you losing consciousness)

    (Okay. How's this?)

    "Well, both?" Deon falls to his knees and laughs weakly.

    "But I think I value endurance more... And if you're offering to increase one, I could sure use thee endurancccceeee..." He just barely manages to control the direction he falls in instead of faceplanting forward.

    The world fades to black as you fall unconscious. An unknown time later, you regain consciousness with a mighty gasp and find yourself in a dark room. You can feel a burning sensation on your shoulder, as if it were on fire yet none of the pain from the fire you've already endured. As you lie there, the pain subsides and it feels as if your shoulder is coated in ash. (You are healed of all damage and conditional effects as this happens) The floor is cool to the touch, especially compared to the heat of your trial. It feels refreshing. As your eyes open, a fire flickers to life above your head, extends to the ceiling, and disappears. You are in a very familiar room, the room you are in looks exactly like the first room where you started your ordeal, including the pedestal basin around which you are curled.

    I get up, yawn and stretch, and see if the tablet is still there. If so, I check to see if the text has changed.

    The tablet is still there, you also notice something else is different as you turn your gaze towards the tablet. It reads:

    Your journey has only just begun.
    Youíve been marked as a chosen one.
    But there is more you must yet endure.

    The soulís fire forges an armor against life.
    The bold swim against the flow of fate.
    The daring ride the winds of change.
    But only the mortal may walk the earth.

    Deon shrugs and turns outward.

    He looks through all of the doors in the same order he did last time, starting with the one to his immediate left and then continuing right.

    You check the NW doorway. It opens into a 10' wide hallway that extends beyond your vision. As you repeat the process going NW, to NE, to SE, to SW, and back to NW you notice that each hall seems identical. Taking a chance you wander a few feet into the NW hallway. You can see a bit of dim light at the far reaches, which is just enough to let you see that the hall is opening into a large room at the far end. You recheck the NE hall, again traveling in a few feet. Unlike the NW hall, there is no light beyond.

    They don't glow different colors like they did last time?

    Anyway, Deon checks to see if anything is visible down the hallways to the south.

    (They do not glow)

    As you check the SE and then the SW hallway, it is the same as the NE hallway. You cannot see anything beyond by just stepping a few feet into the hall. Given the identical nature of all the doorways and halls, you imagine each one is probably the same. The NW gave you the best clue as to what to expect, but without further investigation it seems as if you won't know what is down each individual hallway.

    "Hm. Last time, that one was water..." Deon faces the SE door. "But they're listed in a different order this time."

    Deon turns NE, and walks down that corridor.

    (Has anything ever happened to stop Deon from moving backward? Did he hear a gate closing behind him at any point? Or was the exit back into the room missing when he fell back into the hallway after the fire-illusion?)

    As you wander around, you realize that while this initial room first appeared to be where you started it is different. You noticed there is no longer the same changing colors glowing brightly. The doorways are all straight shots into the hallways. In fact, there is only a single doorway unlike the double doorway from before.

    As you start to wander down the hall, you notice the light seems to follow you as you travel just like previously. The further into the tunnel you go, the more it seems your original instincts were correct. This is a long tunnel, 10' wide that opens into a giant room beyond. As you travel, you notice the faintest glimmer on the floor beyond as the tiniest bits of light seem to catch something there and are thrown back randomly.


    (You've not noticed something stopping you from retreating. You did hear something before, but it was when you initially left the first pedestal. Which fire incident? You've encountered a few now. Do you mean the very first one? When you reappeared everything looked exactly as it had before the "illusion".)
