Female Human (Varisian) Cleric 6

DM:
Nuri doesn't have Knowledge (arcana): only (planes) and (religion).

Nuri shudders and moves away from the scarf on the floor. "Burn it," she says flatly, looking to the fireplace.

Nuri:
Sorry, I missed typed that it was supposed to be religion

Wren walked to the windows and took a long look around the area. "How strange. These stained-glass windows obscure what would be a breathtaking view of the Lost Coast. It doesn't seem that any right minded architect would install windows to block this view. It's just strange."

Anything else you want to do in this room? Where else would you like to go?

Nuri still wants to burn the scarf. ;P

Victor picks up the scarf and moves to the fireplace. "We are going to need some wood and obviously something to light it with." Looking around, "Let us just use a chair or desk. Anyone got a light?"

Victor takes the scarf back into the room it was discovered in. Smashing one of the fallen chairs he moves to build a small pyre in the fireplace. Inside the hearth remains a bookend carved to resemble and angel with butterfly wings. One wing is broken, and as Victor moves it to make his fire he notices it has a dried blood stain, a clot of hair, and possibly a chunk of bone stuck to it.

"What the...?" Victor studies the object a moment before removing it from within the fireplace. "Okay, this is kind of sick, I must say." He takes the bookend - then throws the scarf in the fireplace - and goes to show the others what he's found. "Now, I have not yet burned the scarf but I found this. Looks like someone was killed with... this?" He looks at it, a bit confused. "I do not know, it does not make any sense how this thing could kill someone and why this would be in the fireplace." He shrugs. "I will leave this with you all while I go back and burn the scarf." He then moves to do just that.


AC 13, HP 41/41; F+5, R+5, W+7 Per+4, Init.+2, AoO+3

"I wonder if the scarf had something to do with this murder weapon? Maybe that is why it was enchanted to try and take its revenge?"


Female Human (Varisian) Cleric 6

"We don't know anyone was murdered," Nuri answers sharply. "Perhaps there was an accident. Or someone killed a dog, or a goblin, or ... or a ghoul."

"When we are done here, perhaps we'd be best to burn it behind us. There are certainly dark forces at work here that the innocent and naive must not be allowed to stumble upon."

Once the fire is built in the hearth, Victor takes and lays the scarf in the midst of the tinder. Striking a flame, in a few moments white smoke is flowing up the chimney and a little bit into the room. The smell of the burring wood is mixed with a foul oder like death as the scarf is quickly consumed in the blaze. In an instant the fire is burning hot, much hotter than a scarf and chair would or should burn, but half a moment later the blaze snuffs out, the smoke clears and a pile of ash is all that remains.


Where to next?

Returning from his fine work, "Okay, Nuri, the scarf is gone. Burnt to a crisp. Now we..." he looks around at the others as if waiting for something, giving it a moment or two before, "Okay, well, if there is nothing else down here to try and kill us I will try my luck upstairs where the spooky noise came from. Nothing could possibly go wrong up there, I am sure," he says with obvious sarcasm in his tone.

If there is nothing else of interest down here, then Victor will go upstairs as he intended initially. I know there's a map around somewhere but I'm just too tired and too lazy to go looking for it. :p

With the scarf finally dealt with, Eponine will go with Victor to the second floor. Once they get to the stairs, she'll slow them down and check each step for traps or structural weakness.

MAP after combat B4 is where the windows are and the scarf fight took place; B9 is where the fireplace is and the scarf was burnt; the stairs are in B2

Once the scarf is reduced to ash Victor is eager to go upstairs and search for anyone who needs aid. Eponine follows him, but keeps him from rushing up the stairs so she can check for boobytraps. Once satisfied they are safe, they ascend up one flight. Upstairs you find a hallway with several closed doors.

Wren follows the others, making sure she remained closeby. She had stopped trusting anything in this house.

Eponine will check the door to the left (between her icon and Victor's).
She'll listen at it and check for traps. If she detects nothing, she'll open the door.


Mid Morning Day 2 Total earned XP: 15,000

The door is not locked or rigged in anyway, it is stuck in the frame but a good shove gets it to swing free. Beyond is a narrow hall with a stairwell descending back down to the first floor.

"Servants' stairs?" Nuri ventures a guess why two staircases would be so close together.

Victor shrugs, having no idea as he moves forward and checks the double doors on his left.

Checking AT 34, AU 34(or those doors that are roughly in that area)


AC 13, HP 41/41; F+5, R+5, W+7 Per+4, Init.+2, AoO+3

Wren follows the two, noticeably quieter since her insistence on bringing that magical scarf almost got one of the others choked out.

Victor opens the double doors on the left side of the hall. A stone fireplace sits in the northwestern portion of this chamber. Paintings hang on the walls to the north and south, each covered over with a thick sheet of dusty cobwebs that obscures its subject from view. Another double door leads out on the wall opposite of where Victor is standing.

"There is not much in here except for more doors." He then turns and steps next to the double doors directly behind him, opening them as well.

Eponine just glances around the dusty room, curved blade dangling loosely in one hand. She focuses on the floor a moment before following Victor.

Survival 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (14) + 4 = 18 to look for recent activity (other than us) in the dust.

Eponine scans the floor, but it seems no one has been upstairs in several months.

Victor opens the doors opposite where Eponine is investigating. This large room features two padded chairs and a long couch facing a wide alcove lined with stained­ glass windows. These windows depict a diverse array of animals and plants-from north to south are a large pale and ghostly scorpion, a gaunt man holding out his arms as a dozen bats hang from him, a moth with a strange skull-like pattern on its wings, a tangle of dull green plants with bell­ shaped flowers, and a young maiden sitting astride a well in a forest while a spindly spider the size of a dog descends along a string of webbing above her.

"Whoa! You all need to come and see this room. It is truly one of the weirdest I believe I have ever seen." Victor steps in and looks around the room.


AC 13, HP 41/41; F+5, R+5, W+7 Per+4, Init.+2, AoO+3

"What sort of strange art is this? Who would leave such work on display in their home?"


Female Human (Varisian) Cleric 6

Knowledge (religion) 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (5) + 9 = 14 to see if there's any religious significance to the figures pictures. That moth seems familiar....

Eponine will start to stroll around the room, seeing what's there.

Identifying objects on display:

Knowledge (any that should be applicable) 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (17) + 8 = 25

Nuri and Eponine study the glass images, conversing in hushed tones.

Nuri & Eponine:

Together you puzzle out that these are not significantly religious but are defiantly connected to arcane magic. Specifically they represent components used in necromancy spells. The images symbolize scorpion venom, vampire's breath, the tongues of deathwing moths, belladonna, and the heart of a maiden slain by poison.

Roakkad kept pace with the others, keeping a watchful eye out for hidden threats but not examining anything else unless his opinion was asked for.
