Male Nagaji Slayer 3 || Init. +3 || Hp: 9 / 24 || AC: 19/14F/15T || F3/R6/W0; (+2 vs. mind-affecting, poison, & fear) || CMD 19 || Studied Target +1 || Sneak Attack +1d6 || Percep. +7 || Low-light || 30 ft.

Picking up his dropped weapons, Sirusk looks around the room. "Blasted undead; thisz one's targets are generally more ... alive, at least for the first time. Ok so don't poke the bony ones and don't pound the fleshy ones. Is that about it?"

Sirusk readies a scimitar in his main hand and a tonfa in his off-hand. "Not ideal, but at least thisz one will be ready for either. Shall we search about the chambers?"

"Oh friend, you don't look so good; come to think of it, thisz one isn't feeling so well either", Sirusk mentions upon glancing at Cerastes. "Perahpsz we should rest for a minute and heal"

Current HP 9/24


Searching this area reveals curtained off cubicles where acolytes resided. There is a small kitchen and the center structure is a toilet facility.
There is little left besides the larger furnishings like chairs, bedframes and footlockers. Things like clothes and bedding have long since decayed away. There is nothing left of valuable metal, crystals or magic; all since looted long ago.
The only other accessway to this section is a corridor leading north.

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Bloodied and bruised, the oracle nods to Sirusk, "We can expect to face more of the undead, not much lives out here in this place. We should use curative magics before continuing."

I think we have a decent number of charges left in the CLW wand (though I have lost track of the number of charges and Ibraham is carrying them). We should use that.


When you are ready, you travel up the north corridor.

The short hallway connects a shallow, empty pool to the west to two curtained cubicles to the east.
A wooden bench is bolted to the floor in a small alcove across from the pool.
A set of stone doors marked with hieroglyphs stands to the north.

TACTICAL OVERVIEW

Sirusk continues ahead with a scimitar in one hand and a tonfa in the other, plus their matching pairs ready at his side. Interesting for sure. Why would one secure a chair to the floor in front of this pool? Sssomeone check if itsz magical, pleasez.

Is the pool murky or clear??

If the pool is clear, Sirusk takes a cursory stroll around it.
If it is murky, he will wait for the detect magic result.

Either way,
Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (15) + 7 = 22

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Cerastes' gaze fixes on the chair and pool as he concentrates...

Detect Magic on chair pool and rest of area after that.


The pool is clear.
Detect Magic reads negative.

Looking around more carefully, you see that two corpses have been dragged into the northern cubicle here.
One is a pile of bare bones kicked unceremoniously out of the way, and the other is a rotting, but still intact, cadaver.
An old, broken scimitar lies nearby.

Heal check DC14:

The bones are scorched and still warm to the touch, and the corpse has suffered a number of recent injuries.

Knowledge:Religion DC10:

Characters who examine the bodies check identify them as recently destroyed undead—a skeleton and zombie, respectively.

There are two exits out of this section.
The East exit and the North exit, both are double doors.


Male Nagaji Slayer 3 || Init. +3 || Hp: 9 / 24 || AC: 19/14F/15T || F3/R6/W0; (+2 vs. mind-affecting, poison, & fear) || CMD 19 || Studied Target +1 || Sneak Attack +1d6 || Percep. +7 || Low-light || 30 ft.

Heal: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11

Hmm, not a great sign. Hopefully they stay dead, hah.
Thisz one is rotting; more recent death than the othersz then I would assume. Aren't these sites supposedz to be ssealed?

Track: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (10) + 5 = 15 Sirusk attempts to determine where they have been dragged from...


female Human (keleshite) Wizard (Necromancer) 3 l AC 15 l hp 13/21 l F2R2W4 active spells: mage armor

Inferis nods at Sirusk's comments, "I agree. Something must have let them out....or created them more recently." Looking to their options, "Perhaps we should go to the north first."

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Knowledge(Religion): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (11) + 6 = 17

The oracle looks over the remains closely, "These were lowly mindless undead creatures. What concerns me is that they were very recently destroyed. Someone else is here...or was very recently."


The double doors leading north are locked.
They are also inscribed with Ancient Osiriani hieroglyphs that read...

Ancient Osiriani:

They read, “High Priest Only—All Others Forbidden.”

Perception DC18:

You notice scratch marks around the lock, suggesting it has recently been picked.

"Hmmm, the heiroglyphics on this door say, “High Priest Only—All Others Forbidden.”

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10

Is Osiriani the same as ancient Osiriani? If not, are they similar?

"That soundsz promising. Perhapsz the high priest left some good sstuff around. Shall we check it out?"

Sirusk searches the door for traps and strains to see if he hears any commotion on the other side.
Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12


Osiriani is different than Ancient Osiriani; they are not similar enough to glean any info if you don't have it.


female Human (keleshite) Wizard (Necromancer) 3 l AC 15 l hp 13/21 l F2R2W4 active spells: mage armor

perception:1d20 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 1 = 8
"That looks promising. Let's check it out."


After one of you deals with the lock, it opens for you.

This sparsely furnished room contains a bed frame bolted to the floor in the southwest corner next to a lacquered end table.
On the opposite side of the room, a wooden desk has partially collapsed against the wall.
Doors exit the room to the north, east, and south.

Searching the Desk:
There is no longer anything of interest in the ruins of the desk.

Chamber Overview


Which way now?

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Think the intention is to open the High Priest door. I imagine Sirusk will want to do the honors :)


You did open the "high priest only" door. Behind it is the chamber you are in now.

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Oh, I see. Helps if I look at the map :/ I say we go through the door to the east.


Male Nagaji Slayer 3 || Init. +3 || Hp: 9 / 24 || AC: 19/14F/15T || F3/R6/W0; (+2 vs. mind-affecting, poison, & fear) || CMD 19 || Studied Target +1 || Sneak Attack +1d6 || Percep. +7 || Low-light || 30 ft.

Yeah, sorry. My new work location blocks all things google docs/gmail. I was waiting for someone else's recommendation. :)

Sirusk nods in agreement with Cerastes as the oracle motions to the eastern doorway. He quietly strides over and checks the door out.

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25


The door is not trapped or locked.
When opened you see:
Rows of stone shelves fill this crowded room.
Most of the books and scrolls once stored here have disintegrated over time, but a few volumes engraved on more durable materials still endure.
Numerous scroll tubes litter the floor of the room amid the dusty remains of ruined paper and papyrus.
Library Overview

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Cast detect magic.

"Perhaps there are historical records here about the people and use of this place." Cerastes scans the room looking for telltale magic auras.


female Human (keleshite) Wizard (Necromancer) 3 l AC 15 l hp 13/21 l F2R2W4 active spells: mage armor

"Even if not magical, there maybe something of value."
peruse the selection for valuable books or things of interest. perception and appraise checks:1d20 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 1 = 81d20 + 9 ⇒ (1) + 9 = 10


DC20 Appraise or DC 15 Perception:

You find an unrolled papyrus scroll discarded and crumpled on the floor.
It is written in Ancient Osiriani.

Survival (Track) DC14:

Tracks reveal that as many as four people were present in this area within the last 24 hours.

DC20 Perception:

You discover a secret panel in the western wall of the library.
The panel is locked but not trapped, and opening it requires
a successful DC 20 Disable Device check.

Track: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6
Perception 2: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11

Were these supposed to be 2 separate Perceptions checks?

Sirusk wanders about the room, searching for anything of interest. A crumpled and unrolled papyrus scroll catches his eye, and Sirusk picks it up. Unrolling it, Sirusk cannot tell what languages it is in.

"Friendsz, I found something maybe interesting. An unrolled scroll, but I cannot read the obscure writing." With that, Sirusk holds the scroll out for anyone else to take and see if they can make anything out.

Scarab Sages

Male Human Oracle 3 HP 6/26 | AC:19 F:+1 R:+2 W:+3 | Init: +7 (Roll twice take better result) | Speed: 20 | Percep. +5 |

Cerastes takes a look, "Hmmm...this is ancient Orisani." He begins mulling over the heiroglyphics...

Ah, didn't realize they were two seperate checks. Second Perception: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12


HP 34/34 | AC:20 F:8 R:4 W:7 (+2 death) | Init: 1 (roll twice take better)| Speed: 20/30 Melee: [dice]1d20+5[/dice] [dice]2d6+4[/dice] | PA: -1/+2; Smite(1): +2/+2

No tracking so no survival, but the other checks
Appraise: 1d20 ⇒ 5
Perception: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4
Perception: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (17) + 3 = 20

Rosalind glances at the debris, then wanders the room looking at the shelves, running her fingers along the intricate stonework. They tingle as she moves over a secret door near one of the walls.

"This must have been glorious once. How did they set these shelves in the floor here? Ah, I sound like a Dwarf. There's worse things I suppose. This really is beautifully jointed, barely any seams. Wait, what's this? A moment friends, there's some kind of door here let me as Kurgess if it is trapped."

Her voice fades as she flattens her palms against the stone concentrating, her gaze fixed in space.

Use 1 charge of Door Sight - what's on the other side of the door?

"Perhapz this one should have checked thisz side of the door before you touched it...", Sirusk cautions his good friend warily. "So, what do you ssee?
