"Yet how do we get its attention?" Darius turned towards Rafik. "What do your people use for Slorn-bait?"

Re: Broderick's Expedition
I suspect the Slorn is attracted by movement. In regard to the slaying of this beast, do you think it will be possible to dispatch the creature quickly? As I'm hoping any injuries inflicted by missiles it will not drive it away forcing us to chase after it.

Clair shudders at the image created by Gimaldi's statement, grimacing A Truly gruesome thought why would you want such a disgusting thing.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
"Using such a skull in that way, destroys it, but it conjures forth a minor spirit, that will do my bidding, and attack whom I wish for 24 hours, until destroyed... mundane attacks are of little avail, and armor is of none. Things really get interesting when you invoke more than one... heh heh heh.."
Grimaldi gave a dry chuckle. This one seemed to have the bloodlust.

Have you considered the possibility of rodents, for that purpose, as there are plenty of Rats about that may serve?

"There is no way I could allow the use of such necromancy! It requires a Sentient creatures skull because you enslave the spirit of the sentient creature! A rat would never do, only a humanoid or similar, which makes such a spell despicable!"

You should be more specific and use the term Non animal intelligence Humanoid rather that Sentient as that indicated lower creatures.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
"It's not the spirit of the owner, priest... The magic is too minor. Rather, it's residual essence is enough to invoke the anomaly. My studies in necromancy haven't crossed the threshold of learning "death vision". This is the spell which is needed before learning to summon, and later bind and enslave spirits, and raise the dead. Besides, I only use the skulls of blackguards and scum, who are better off dead." Grimaldi spat upon the floor.
"hmph hmm hmm hmm..."
"Priest, if you don't like me... wait til you get a load of him."
Grimaldi nodded at the necromancer, whose aura and magic he could feel.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Broderick's brows wrinkled, it was beginning to turn out like this was going to be one of those days it wasn't worth the effort of getting out of Bed.... Ah Bed... Uhmmm, oh! my better keep the group moving he thought. Ok then before we get too much closer to the grate we should decide who will be engaging the Slorn, with spell or missile

"Necromancers! The scum of the earth. Lets deal with the creature we came here to deal with, before I invoke the light of Helios on them or they turn their creations onto me!"

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Grimadli was amused.
"Heh heh.. Monsieur Kopaki, did you hear that? You and I are the two pieces 'o bread in this here, shit-sandwich."
Grimaldi chuckled again.
"I know how you feel priest. The guild has it's fair share of scum, and we can't always control who's coming along on a job. Let's get this over with, eh?"

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Darius listened to the argument and especially Grimaldi's thaumatological description of the skull spirit. Quite interesting. "A necromancer," he rasped, "is, in my experience, no better nor worse than anyone else. It is a tool, nothing else. Do you blame the swordsman for all the innocent people slaughtered by swords?"
He smiled at the celestial. "Your gifts could be used to kill people. Mine could be used to give closure, or to find a murdered. Or, indeed," he nodded at Grimaldi's words, "to resurrect scum for the economical gain of the guild."

"Peace, celestial, at least until we leave this place? After that," he laughed, though it came out more rasping than laughing, "I would gladly debate philosophy with you."

 Leading the group into the adjacent room Broderick pauses and points through the doorway to the grate. The Slorn is somewhere behind that Grate.

In reply to Melchizidek (msg # 561):

Having rounded the corner after leaving the gated area, you enter a narrow damp passage that is braced by timbers. One side is the rough masonry of the other side of the room Voorland is plastering, and the opposite wall is very damp, and has a battered bronze gate blocking an arched entrance. Rhe wall looks to be about a yard thinck, whereas the walls of the basement seem to be about a foot thick, except for bracing in the corner.

There are spots in the narrow corridor where the support beams are buttressing on a diagnal, makung passage awkward.

"Hark!"
Grimaldi held up a hand. "The way ahead looks difficult. Let us arrange ourselves in a manner, so that if a bad cloud come upon us, I may protect everyone..."
Grimaldi steps forward, and moves up in the ranks.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Broderick clambers past the fallen timbers as he had previously. He then assists Clair to negotiate the timbers. Once everyone had passed the obstacle he continues on towards the room with the Slorn.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Clair extends her exquisitely manicured hand taking Broderick's own as he assists her to negotiate the fallen timbers. Once clear of the debris she brushes the dust of her gown as she thanks him.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Darius moved in after the couple, keeping his quarterstaff well away from the beams.


OOC: That would make the marching order Grimaldi, Melchizidek, Broderick and Clair, Darius, and probably Rafik, right?
