    I'll have Talgrun try to use Aid Another for Morekal's Search check.

    And now, while we wait;
    Spider guard, spider guard,
    Getting past them wasn't very hard,
    Couldn't take an arrow to the face,
    Now we're going to loot this place,
    Watch out, these bandits had spider guards!


    I regret nothing.

    No, if that were the case that would have been in-character

    I'm going to roll Sense Motive on our mystery man here to see if he's just rambling or if there's something more going on.

    You're not sure. You think it's an ethnic group, from context clues.

    Nope, reggae festival on the coast. Turned out to be real downer as mainliner, for whom I waited for 5 months didn't managed to get on saturday. I've heard the news 15 minutes before the planned preformance....

    So they postponed it for tomorrow but i had to get back to my city. I came back again that night solely for that, but they asked to pay the price for that day too, which i didn't obviously want as I already got screwed yesterday. So I yelled at them, told them to **** off, spit on the counter and stormed off.

    Never again going on that festival.

    I am still wearing my fancy priestly outfit. I realise that is difficult to keep it clean in the desert, but at the very least I'm not going to actively make it harder.... Priests don't shovel sand, my friends. I won't stop anyone from trying, and I'd happily stand around and be the light but that's all Azrael wil do with regards to excavating passages.

    I don't think that the person(s) who can read the runes on the door have already mentioned what they meant to the rest of the group, unless of course I skipped over a post somewhere.

    Apologies for the late reply about the censer, things have been a bit hectic. What is the consensus on leaving vs exploring deeper?

    RL happens.

    As to going on vs going back, I'm fine either way, but it might be best to be very careful if we move on. Golden (or gilded) doors with warnings on them are not used without a reason.

    Morekal is going to be damn hard to convince to open those doors. We going to try to decide?

    Talgrun is leaning towards opening the doors himself, but he isn't going to actually open them unless it seems the majority of the group agrees. Right now I'm mostly waiting for either Llwellyn or Barhei to speak up, since Saelihn has already expressed interest and based on A.A.King's post I'm guessing Azrael is in favor as well.

    Barhei already made his mind the minute he looked upon the runes and said their meaning. If we are going to confront bandits and maybe die, he would probably want to make it on his own and die while opening the tomb :)

    But nevertheless, if group wants to move on then it's also fine.

    p.s.
    I'm on vacation till 19.8. for this summer so I'll post bit less but will try to keep on.

    In the interest of keeping the game alive we need to choose something. OOC I'm fine with opening the door, although Morekal will definitely say "I told you so" if there's something nasty in there.

    ok with me, but I can't open the door I think. I'll be ready for anything.

    I have a feeling we will look quite silly, all magicked up and with weapons ready and then there's nothing there.

    EDIT: what do we need to roll to know what the blue curtain is?

    My plan is if I find an off-switch, to jump through (counting on my Evasion ability to stay safe) and turn the next curtain off.

    EDIT: @GM: can I use the skill 'use magic device' to try and turn this thing off?

    No. These will not be overcome by a die roll. Breaking the illusion a little bit, there are three expected ways forward, per curtain. One is straightforward, one is clever, and one is programmed. You defeated curtain 1 by being clever. If this is becoming tedious for everybody then we can take a vote on what to do next, brute force the curtains, simply leave, or write in your own response.

    I assume that one way is to use the opposite element, but what is the opposite of lightning.
    Another way is to find a way to earth the lightning, that might also work.

    I can post the idea, but someone has to go in between. Can't double post.

    EDIT: creating a metal doorway should also work, as the lightning would go on the outside (like a Faraday cage).
