Game Master Alexander Kilcoyne

"What is this place? Puzzles in Azlant, more magic than you see in a year in Absalom. Wheels literally within wheels. Bound demons and wax golems? The expense must have been enormous. But why? To what end?"

I was hoping it wouldn't come to that. ;)

Yeah, that's pretty much Ansha's dream. :)

Preeeeetty much!

In the absence of a better idea shall we try thinking at the map-vat?

*shrug* It's that or sending in Akirra to make a wild guess and hoping incorrect answers aren't as fatal as they appeared to be on the last level.

...which I guess is our Plan B.

So we have cleared this level? I think we have but I could be wrong.

Yes, pretty sure we checked all the rooms before returning to the conservatory.

EDIT: Here's the last map overview, and the blank area is the plant room we're in now. Should be everything. Stasis chambers, pool, barracks, classroom, access to next level, statues, and conservatory.

Collection of Random Notes:
Despite the more welcoming nature of the level though, the veins of red, pulsing magic were still visible; although it seemed they were simultaneously both better concealed (for example, in the corners of the walls or subtly creeping along the upper section of a wall rather than running straight through it) and thicker than before; like veins pumping with blood a little closer to a heart.

I don't think we fully checked out the skeleton's table

Ansha opened the north-west room's door and revealed another identical chamber; but this one was entirely empty of any physical remains. The pulsing, healthy looking lines of magic led her to believe this room's device had never actually been activated or used.

Tebati moved to sit down on the stairs, but was surprised to find herself unable to reach them. A sheer wall of intangible, magical force had risen up at the opening to the stairwell, with no apparent gaps. The group were trapped upon this level.

Inspecting the fountain, Ansha came to the conclusion that at least the group would not die of thirst anytime soon. The water seemed to be coming from the very external walls of the structure and seemed to be pure and fresh; even a little chilled. More magic was no doubt at work here.

Through to post number 4,000

On the positive side - we have food and drink at least... and if we turn their school room over to an outhouse we can likely survive in relative comfort for a while :P

Good point. Ansha tried to download the memories from one of those stasis rooms into a skull, but we haven't tried downloading them into a living person yet.

Exactly how desperate we'd have to be to try that on ourselves is a separate question. :P

What if Akirra tried to use his stasis table to download his own lost memories back into his brain?

Faith in action? - prove a point to us disbelievers of the Order? :P

More Notes from 4,000 On:
Opening the door to the north revealed another large chamber, well lit by ever-burning torches. It looked very much like a barracks; neat rows of metal-based, triple bunk beds were laid out with corridor space and chests for equipment to be stowed. The beds still bore linen and mattresses and in the corner of the room closest to the baths, a small pool of water lay, cut into an indent in the wooden flooring that lowered the flooring there by what looked to be two or three feet. By this pool of water, a kit of well-maintained washing apparatus lay.

The strange invisible presence in said chamber

Desks and chairs lined the room, with a much larger desk on the far end along with an empty bookshelf. Clearly, this room was a classroom, eons ago. Akirra felt a vague sensation that he should know this place, but the thought was frustrating, always at the edge of his subconscious.

With the doors thrown open, an ancient contingency was triggered. A totally monotone voice emanated from the south side of the room, speaking in Azlant. It seemed to come from one of the statues on that side of the wall. These statues were depicted in greater detail than those in the corridors outside, and seemed to be more distinct and varied. Nevertheless, the theme of the statues remained unchanged, although there was clearly greater honor imparted to the individuals depicted.

If you are a true son or daughter of the Order of Arioch, or are accompanied by such, fully recite the 3rd Treatise of Arioch.

Stairs down in the treatise room

Jakob said: We have a makeshift library in the camp, but we are trapped on this level by a wall of force.....A wall of force that we can see through!"

"I may have a solution... If we return to the entrance we can get the attention of one of the expedition staff. They can check the records we have and with any luck tell us what we need to say.
Getting their attention through the force wall might be difficult but I expect we can find a way."

This water seemed to, somehow, be holding an image- likely a map although it wasn't easy to tell from here. The water was clearly depicting geography of some kind; and littered across the green and brown segments which must surely represent land, bright beacons of light seemed to glisten like stars. On the same bathtub-like device, several levers were affixed to the end closest to the chair. In addition, a single lever of solid metal was affixed close to the door.

After some experimentation, Akirra found that they switched the image on the water entirely to a completely different landscape. One lever switched to and from a region as large as the original region itself, although it was much more land-locked. This too, had perhaps several dozen points of light scattered across the map.

The other lever showed a much smaller map in far greater detail. With almost no geographical memory to call upon, Akirra struggled to relate its size, but he estimated that it was likely ten to twenty times smaller than the original map he had seen. This smaller map had less than a dozen points of light upon it.

DM breadcrumbs suggest that there might be something learnable in the school room... or at least Akirra had a (meta) failed memory recollection there.

The water table appears to just be geographically related.
