Ballast signals to the others, one... two... on three he opens the door (or bashes it, if it's locked), eager to catch whoever is using this strangely-placed room!

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The door is open and inside are several barrels and baskets looking like they were thrown inside. Its a small room, about twenty by twenty and if moves around be a decent place to sit. Theres nothing important in the room besides this and it looks rather old.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx looks at the rooms and sniffs. The age of the room makes him suspicious, and he looks at the others. "Smells old and stuffy here....should we look anyway?"

"I think we shouldn't leave any door behind us unexplored. That way, we reduce the chance that something will catch us off-guard from behind." she noted with a smile as she began to look over the room.

"Rest here?" The barbarian watches the group, grunting at times. He looks at them for a moment.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The dwarf nods, entering the room. He looks around, moving things around with a grunt, but seems like he was struggling.  When a barrel rolled on a toe, the dwarf started swaring in dwarvish. "Damn wish that rogue hadn't disappeared on us....he's more suited to this that i. I'm a Mage!"

He grumbled as he left the room.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Cumarinda looks first to the elf barbarian and then to the others, "So far I've seen nothing much to cause concern. Also Fenris has asked for a rest. Let's rest here for a bit."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The dwarf doesn't find anything and the elf seems aggrivated by the cleric. He grunts "No rest." He stands in the doorway, watching the hall with his sword out. The elf watches the dwarf turn to leave the storage area and he glances at the warforged and human  and the dwarf probably ponders what caused the light but its gone now. Odd.

Further down the corrider it curves and goes downwards to a door slightly open. Once open its another storage room. Of course. But the room feels odd. Colder.

OOC
My bad forgot about the light, was supposed to be dark and gloomy but eh.

listen, search and spots needed

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Ballast doesn't worry as much about the cold as others, and enters the room cautiously.  Perhaps something here leads to the tombs they had explored?  Or to some other place the sea devils found important.  He gestures the others in as he looks about.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx sands in the door, the cold making him hesitate, as he looks around, his eyes and ears sharp for what is different in this room.

Brankx smiles as he moves forward, seeing the source of the difference in the temperature..a hidden waterway in the far corner of the room. The dwarf looks at the construction with a sniff. "Not an old entrance...this is but a new construction, a few months at most."

he looks at the others. "Wish i could breathe underwater....make things better to search there."

Ballast shrugs. "I do not breathe. Have you a magical light so that I can see what is down there?

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Quickly joining the others, Cumarinda shivers as they enter the clammy storage room. "Well the waterway would explain where the sea devils are coming from."

Perceiving nothing more unusual about the room than had been pointed out by the others, she listened to their words (and grunts) and then slowly drew her blessed longsword. "I pray that great Pelor has seen fit to imbue this sword with divine radiance enough to shed light upon the darkness that we find ahead of us."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx looks down the hole with a sniff. "I don't think it's a great idea to go down there alone big guy....i don't doubt ye skills, i just be wary of those damn water demons sneaking up on ye. I can cast a spell that lights a single item, but the issue is time and th' fact we can't back ye up."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
"Or we could find or fashion something to block it off.  That could be simplest if we wish to disrupt them.  For the time being, we could place things about the opening that would make a racket if pushed through; then we could finish searching the rest of this place while having a warning if a sea devil surfaced and tried to come after us," Ballast suggests.  "Fenris, we don't know how far this tunnel goes; I would not see you drown in exploring it."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Shaking his head as if not agreeing, the barbarian growls and goes over to the wall. He stares at the warforged, then looks at all the broken bottles, barrels and well bags thrown about.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
After a moment of thought and seeing to come to some kind of decision the young cleric speaks, "I think its best that we somehow determine how long and far that water tunnel goes.

Ballast, why don't you take the light from Brankx and follow the tunnel until you find one of three things, a place where the rest of us can breathe, a sea devil coming this way, or the magic of the light fading. Once you have found any one of these three, you come back to us and report. "


She looks around at the rest of the party,"I don't want to risk anyone drowning when we don't have to. While Ballast goes searching, the rest of us will guard his back  here."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx thought ballast going down on his own was a bad idea, but the clerics reasoning was sound....the sea devils were sneaky and the group needed every advantage.

Brankx looked around and smiled, walking up to ballast, he cast a simple light spell on his shield.

"This way if they sneak up on ye, you'll be ready and still have light."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
"Very well.  I shall see you soon," he says, and steps into the water, glowing shield at the ready.  He will climb down if it is needed, and walk along the bottom of the flooded tunnel, alert for any movement or anything unusual.

The warrior stands near the doorway and waits for anything to happen. He doesn't look happy, not even remotely.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx looks at Fenris, in his bad mood at the delay. "Would ye rather a swarm of those fishy bastards sneak up o' us? Best ter check...even if it takes a bit. I can tell ye i'd rather know it's clear."

He looks down the passage. "I'm not happy 'bout the big guy goin' on his own though."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Cumarinda manages a slight smile as she speaks with the others, "I know that we'd all rather be down there with Ballast watching his back. But since none of us can do without breathing air like he can, we can't go places where he can. Besides, I'm sure that he will be back soon."

She brings her hands together, bows her head, and closes her eyes as she prays "Great Sun Father, look upon us with your favor and bless Ballast as he goes forth to do good and fight evil. In your name I pray Lord Pelor."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The barbarian stares at the cleric who seems to be talking to herself. Ballast isn't here. So why is she putting a blessing on him? Apprently he doesn't really grasp the concept.

About two hours pass by. Three hours. Movement comes up from the cavern below.

Ballast makes his way up to them, but its tough. He stands there, drenched.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Ballast lets himself drain for a moment, shaking out any extra water over the hole if he can.  "The passage leads out to a beach, somewhere away from the village.  I saw no tracks, islands, ships, or signs of habitation.  Perhaps the sea devils come from the sea into this passage, but if that is the case, I saw nothing recent.  Nor did I see any side passages."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Cumarinda walks up to Ballast and says a heartfelt, "Thank you for making that journey for us. Now that we know where it goes can follow your earlier idea and block it off for now, using these barrels and baskets to warn us if someone attempts to come through."

Looking to the others she continues, "When we leave we'll tell the mayor and the rest about the waterway so they can do something more permanent about it. For now, lets move on, we've spent enough time here."
