Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Gal;ain searches for a way to make it to the stairs while keeping an eye out for whatever made the webs. He makes sure to look up often.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain moves forward, brushing the web alot with his body and hands while he moves towards the stairs. He reaches the stairs whitout problems faced yet and he rises up them. Soon he reaches to second floor of this tower and see massive clockwork mechanical parts; Wheels and gears all varied sorts and he sees enormous crystal glass window which haves two arrows, a shorter one pointing towards north and longer one pointing towards south.

((Listen and Spot checks))

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain cried out in pain as the spider stuck him with the stinger. A moment later he felt the creature's poisen start to course through his veins. He suddenly felt sluggish and uncoordinated. Nevertheless he steeled himself and fired off a ray of fire from his outstretched fingertips.

The spider clitters it's mandibles and it's many feet in pain when the burnign ray hits it directly between all 8 eyes and burns it badly in there! The spdier is now seriously injured but it is still able to fight and it seems determined to fight to the death! The spider lunges forward and thsi time managed find vulrenebal spot in Galain's magical armor and bite to his left elbow and give yet another dose of poison to his veins!

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain falters as the spiders poisen ran through his body. He takes a step back and nearly fumbles through the mystic passes as his hands seem to lose their fluidity but manages to sned out magical darts of force to hit the ugly thing.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain pauses for a moment to catch his breath. He was sorely wounded but had know choice but to continue on in his desperate and possibly vain hope to rescue his friends. After a moment he heads towards the stairs.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain rises up and he now sees well rusted and worn out clock mechanism, and pair of visors in dirty colorful smoked glass screen. The short visor was pointed at 11 and longer one at 12.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain puts on the visors and looks for anykind of control mechanism for the clock. If he cant find one he will manipulate the hands till they are in the six o'clock position for the bell to ring six times. If that is also not possible he will look for the bells and ring them himself.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain does find some controls but they are rusted shut and likely broken. But he finds the bells themselves however, there was four of them, all going from smallest to bigger one and are clearly elven work.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain places the visors manually and plays the bells......the echo fo the bells ring troughout the complex in eerie manner.........

In libary.....

The rest party wakes up from the spell and it includes the sage who suddenly startles from presence of the group and coughs and says politely; "Oh! I did not see you guys and ladies. Are you exploring the ruins also?"

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Raiden stumbled as the spell released him. "The hells?" the tiefling swore. He looked around. Same as before, but where was the elf?

"Yeah, something like that." he muttered in reply to the sage, choosing to let the others handle it.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Having heard the bells, Galain heads back to the room where the others were frozen. Bursting in and seeing everyone animated he feels a great weight lift from his shoulders, Thank the Seldarine! I had almost dispaired of getting the enchantment lifted. You all were frozen in stasis for hours! I don't think it was a full day but it was close.

OOC: Daughter.


"A day? Damnit." Raiden complained. Yet somehow it had felt longer. Much, much longer. He rubbed his red eyes. Ashes, but he felt tired. Tired and bad-tempered.

He turned to the sage and let out his frustration. "So get your stuff and your loot, and let's go." That was if this cursed place would actually let them out now.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
The sage raised both his eye brows in shock and said; "Suspended animation? What you are talking about elf? Oh, excusme me my manners, I am Persis Volk. Also I cant leave just yet! I just need study few these scrolls and pick the ones which matter! But otherwise I am ready to depart, especially want leave before the damn ghost finds me again."

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain rolled his eyes, humans rarely saw sense in his opininion and he was going to have to convince this man to go  as soon as possible, Listen sir, we came here to rescue you. You were under the effects of a magical effect that was left in place by bthe builders of this place. I don't know how long you were trapped in stasis but my friends here were caught by the spell as well. It took me the better part of a day to break the enchantment. It was difficult to say the least and I nearly didn't survive. He put his hand to his hyead as dizzyness undertook him. I think I still have spider poisen coursing through my veins so please sir if you could make it quick I would appreciate it.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
The sage blinked his eyes and then said with shocked expression in his face; "Oh dear! That is quite ingenious altough quite troublesome trap indeed! I just pack all these scrolls isntead checking what I pick up and get on going, my daughter is worrying sick already probably if I have been stuck here so long!"

(fast speeding forward now)

Persis Volk packs all his scrolls to his handy heward haversack and leads party out of the ruins. He gives a lenghty dialoque about architecture and so far discovered history of the watch tower and he confirms that the tower was dated along to fifth Crown Wars era and was quite effective watch tower which used special scrying gem to watch far away places quickly at once and also locate traces of magic in area.

Once outside the tower Persis Volk rolls up his flying carpet and before he goes to his daughter at Everlund he gives party alot of trinkets as his thanks and also offers material components for raise dead spell for one the fallen companions before he departs. At Everlund party got 2 more trinkets and hefty bag of gems.

OOC: Ok, Alec gets the diamonds for the raise dead spell (and so reduces cost of it alot but you need still either a favour or buy the spell from cleric) and following items besides your RoA birthday gift;

2x +2 ring of protection
1x Headband of Intelect +4
1x +2 elven chainmail (basically mithril +2 chainmail but it is elven design)
1x Elven Minstrel Harp (basically masterwork elven harp which gives +2 bonus to perform; String Insturments but if you have 5 ranks in that skill you get +3 instead. Also increases daily bardic music ability by +1 and increases save DC of  bardic suggestion by +1)
1x Gloves of Dexterity +2 (dark green elven gloves with golden vine details)
2x Vest of Resistance +2 (elven design, one dark blue+silver lines, other dark red+golden lines)
3x Scrolls; Scroll of Scrying (5lvl), Fly (5lvl), Scry location (9lvl)
2x Wands; Wand of Magic Missile (3lvl, 35 charges), Wand of Cure Disease (5lvl, 15 charges)
5x Potions; 3xCure Moderate Wounds, 2xInvisbillity

Also finally 5,000gp worth of gems (you can freely say what gems you taked but total worth is however 5,000).

Also from lengthy game and patience I reward you 2,000 XP.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Once all was said and done, Raiden yawned as he picked over the loot. "Well, that's over with. At long last."

"I'm outta here. Places to go, people to kill, you know. Maybe we'll run into each other again some day, and hopefully not the end of a blade."

"Happy adventuring!"


Scythe over his shoulder, the tiefling stalked off.

Re: Silver Marches Adventure: The Absent-Minded Sage
Galain's eyes light up from all the magical wealth before him he goes over and picks up a few items before saying, Does anyone mind if I take these?


OCC: The items in question are the +4 headband, one of the rings of protection and the wand of Magic Missile.
