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?"

Jakob

Qhude does not allow the umoya-ze to withdraw, rising with bruised pride without moving forward and voice strengthened "We are not kin Akirra of the long dead... and my mind is not closed." touching his chest and tracing the ritual scars upon it with his left hand "I am bas'o and I am young... but I am no isiwula. Every step I take within this earthen tomb makes me long to be out of it."

"Your kin, who took your umoya bound daemons, set isifanekiso to kill, gave beasts the same half-death that was given to you, and this place has a dark inhliziyo beating it's poison through the stone that binds us here. The uMvelinqangi are not worth inhlonipho... and yet you prostrate before them." grimacing and shaking his head.

isiwula - fool
umoya - soul
isifanekiso - statues
inhliziyo - heart
uMvelinqangi - He who came first
inhlonipho - respect

Turning to Jakob and Ansha, she asks, "Ought we not to remove the dead things from the room? The magic might have power to revive them."
Ansha turns to glance at the dead plantoids. "They are aberrations," she says. "But it cannot hurt."

"Just....Try not to think about them too hard.."

Jakob spikes the Plantoids, using his spear has a makeshift pitchfork, and removes the verdant horrors to the relative safety of the corridor.

On returning to the room, "I wonder if this place could manage Sun Orchids? It would make the Grand Custodian job a bit more popular if it came with immortality."

Tebati shoots Jakob an alarmed look, hoping he is joking. "Keep in mind," she tells Akirra, "that as much faith as you have in the leaders of your own Order, we are here to deliver these secrets to those whom even we do not trust to do well with them. Are you not at all uneasy about what an unscrupulous person might do with such powers at his disposal?"

She turns back to Jakob. "If you can make a plant grow by thinking it.... In the room with the map on the surface of the water, perhaps it can display more than a map. If you think of the Treatises of Arioch, perhaps it might show them?"

"Not a bad idea Tebati. Not a bad idea at all."

Jakob sighs

"Yes giving this place to our beloved leader is overall a very bad idea. But as the other options are dying here or destroying these lost survivors I do not see much in the way of choices. Maybe the next generation or few will produce better people. Doubt it, but I am frequently wrong."

"Sure there are options," Kieran quips with a wink and a smile, avoiding to participate in the philosophical debate that seems to be going on. "In fact, you just named two. The problem is not that there are not any, it is just that those alternatives that do exist are... well, not all that palatable to say the least."

Qhude keeps near to the room's exit as he adds his opinion "They can do as they wish with this place... the sooner we are done with it the better."


Your Humble Narrator

The conversation faded out as the group thought upon this strange place and the Grand Custodian's interest in it. The plantoid's and the remains of the archer bush were unceremoniously dumped into the corridor, as a precaution.


I did not mean to imply that we were related Qhude, although that is a possibility... distant of course, Akirra manages with a slight smile, trying to ease the growing tension between the two warriors.

They did not take my soul, for here I stand. And I do not prostrate myself as you claim. As for the rest, without my memories I cannot explain or defend the Order's actions. I will admit, without context, it sounds like this is a terrible place. I am sure, however, that whatever was done here, was done with good reason.

It seems that none of you wish to be here, and that you do not trust those that you work for. What has transpired to bring you here then? And no, I don't think we should hand over this installation to those you deem untrustworthy.

First things first I guess. We need to be able to leave this level... Let's try Tebati's suggestion.

Akirra will attempt to use the map room "computer" to learn about the Treatise via thought.

Qhude just gives Akirra's words an ironic echo "I cannot explain or defend... but I am sure it was done with good reason."


Female Elf Wizard (Manipulator) 4

Ansha fights the urge to roll her eyes again at the reluctance of her comrades to seek after the power this structure was supposed to hold. Instead, she stands and follows after the party into the corridors to the east and makes for the schoolroom again. Once inside, she incants the short phrase to renew her cantrip of detecting magical auras and sweeps the room for anything she missed last time, magical or otherwise.

Perception (take 20): 20 + 6 = 26
Knowledge (arcana): 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (15) + 12 = 27
