Occ waiting on movement to give next description... you are down the hall from the area with the rusty cart and where the dead orc was, and up the hall from where the chained door is.

OOC:  With nothing more to go on than 'chains rattling', I expect we continue forward.

The metal bound double doors with the rusted chains holding them shut. Rattle, and something moves behind them, occasionally slamming into them.
You hear metal scrape, and incoherent muttering.

Clarence will move forward, holding the light  aloft to illuminate the source of the movement and, hopefully, the muttering.

Between the doors,a space about six inches wide, you can see bits if a nude man with weapons piercing his flesh.

"Well, maybe if we pulled all the weapons out of him he might be better..."

Clarence looks for a way to do so, but it seems he will have to open the doors first. He will try to give them a push/pull, depending on which way they open.

Re: Near the bone gate
"Yeah, he's got a right proper sword through his skull.  Okay, like we discussed, repeatin fer Clarence an Charlene's sake, we need immobilize him, t'en heal him.  Least that's t'e theory, right."

Jareth drags Akimbo out of his pocket and perches him on Mario's shoulder.  "Mario, Mel, Akimbo, keep a a look out, jump in if ya gotsa.  I figure if me, Brodak, mostly Brodak, an Clarence rush t'e immortal an grab his arms and pin him down, Nodwin an Jocelyn can pull out t'e weapons, an t'en Nodwin can lay on a heal or two.  Take t'e wind out his crazy sails.  Meanwhile, Ymid can study t'e phenomenon an report what happenin t'e supernatural side.

Right?  Less either you or Jocelyn got sleep spell, Nodwin?

"I am afraid that Vejovis has not given me the power to put him to sleep."

Thinking back on their last encounter. "I hope this is a good idea and that it works. I don't know if healing will help an immortal, unnatural creature that seems to ignore numerous weapons impaling it. I am willing to try of course.
Vejovis' will be done."

The chain remains locked. While the man holds a sword, he has no armor and

Only seems to be slamming himself into the door.

"Hang on, this might take a minute."

In reply to Jareth Mooncalled (msg # 170):

The lock being cheap opens despite the clumsy attempt. Almost immediately, the man within slams into the door, knocking Jareth over onto his back, and he stumbles out into the light.

He is bleeding copiously from a number of wounds, has been run through with several weapons:
 a shortsword, a thrusting broadsword, a spear, two arrows, an axe and a pair of knives.

 He seems to be massively strong, and is clutching a thrusting broadsword of surprisingly good quality.

Brodak holds his shield up and attempts to plow into him and knock him flat, falling on top of him if successful.

Re: Near the bone gate
Mario is unable to resist watching over his shoulder as the noisy activity goes on.  He does remember to glance down the tunnel ever few seconds, but the bulk of his attention is on Brodak, Jareth, and the wounded man.

Nodwin is prepared to cast a healing spell, but he is waiting until some of the weapons are removed, if that is even possible.
