Rownig handles the chain on the girl’s ankle delicately, first eyeing the lock on the clamp on her ankle, and then lifting the chain to follow it to where it is secured to the bed frame and finds that both are held with simple locks which are easy to defeat.

Once the girl is free she bows to everyone and thanks you all.

Well, I guess somebody has to try, Atharessa says as she approaches the small pedestal with her hand outstretched.

"Try what?" Mae asks, head swishing from side to side looking from companion to companion, somewhat alarmed.

Miagnik looks at Gabrielle then at Atharessa.

"Wait, Atharessa. I'll do it. I'll try the device first." he said walking up to the device.

"If anything goes wrong... well just speak to King Heelggod. He'll find me."

He then reached out and touched it.

When Miagnik places his hand on the pedestal he vanishes

Miagnik:
You are in a large room. It is basically “L” shaped. There are two doors, it looks familiar.


NPC: F Dwarf Bard / 4 | Init +0; P -1 | HP 28/29 | AC 17, T 11, FF 17 | F +2, R +4, W +3 | CMD 15

Atharessa places her hand on the pedestal saying

Somebody has to find out if he went...

And vanishes before she finishes her sentence

Miagnik:
As you take in the surroundings, not exactly certain you are in fact back where this all started, suddenly Atharessa pops in right next to you

"Stephanie! This is no time to fool around. Make them visible again!" thunders Mae, staring daggers at her sister.

"Seems like that way..." the dwarf points to the pedestal. "...is bett'r than facin' that demon again." He starts to usher the others towards the teleportation device.

"You ok to walk...travel." Rownig helps Gabrielle to her feet. "We need to be moving...right Hal?"


Male Goblin Sorcerer (Draconic) lvl.5, (Hp. 28/28, Ac.16 [24], Touch. Ac. 15, Flat Footed Ac. 13 [21], Fort. +1, Refl. +4, Will. +5, Perception +7)

Miagnik shook his head and looked around the room, he was momentarily confused before he regained his bearings. When Atharessa appeared he looked momentarily relieve. "Guess it worked. Now let's wait for the others then we'll see what to do next."


The young dwarven girl stands up, shakes her legs, and smiles and says, Yes, I can travel, though it would be nice to have some boots, or even simple shoes. Lead the way, and I will follow.


NPC: F succubus

Take my hand, and I will keep you safe Luelle says after being quiet the whole time, and extends her hand toward Gabriellle


Gabrielle appears startled when she hears Luelle’s voice.

Who are you? she says in a cry of distress. I cannot see you, but I know that voice. That is Omara’s voice, but why can I not see you, witch! Is this some sort of trick?


NPC: F succubus

Luelle laughs, and says, I’m sorry. I forgot. I am not Omara. I am a demoness, a succubus in fact. My name is Luelle. I have promised to help these people you can see. I imagine you cannot see me because I do not have a soul, and it seems to me that that must be what your mind’s eye perceives. It sort of all is making sense now. Haha, I sound like Omara, because I have taken a form that mocks her. It is her form, or it was her form when she was younger. I understand, that is I’ve been told this is a very attractive dwarven woman’s form, and I adopted her voice, and manners as well. She hates it, but she cannot make me act any differently. It torments her to see what she used to be, before, well, before she grew to hate. Hate will make you ugly in ways no magic can conceal.

"Oh right. This makes perfect sense. People I can see are invisible, but people who are invisible aren't here. Would someone please kindly explain to me what the dev...ehrmmm. Oh never mind...."

Slightly catching on, Mae taps the pedestal and waits to turn invisible.

Maelodakh vanishes, and right behind her Moralane steps to the pedestal and places her hand on it.

Now Only Hallister, Windel, Rownig, Stephanie, the demon Luelle and the young dwarven girl remain.

Maelodakh:
You do not experience anything more than a pop as if your ears had been filled with wter and then suddenly they were cleared. And you find yourself standing in a room with Atharessa and Miagnik. Before you can say anything, Moralane appears standing right next to you as if she were conjured out of thin air


Female Gnome (Dwarf/goblin half blood) Wizard/5, HP 26/26 (2 NL), AC 12 (T-12, FF-11), Fort +0 Ref +4 Will +4 ---- Init. +6, Perc. +2

Stephanie who had been running her brain in circles trying to comprehend the enormity of a child who had such potent divinations in their mind and the probable causes for such. Broken from such thoughts by Maelodakh Stephanie looks up to see the group gathering around the teleporting device and several already gone.
Well I can only hope this device works as advertised. The correction to Mae's accusation dying as Luelleschia spoke the gnome frowning as her wheels spun.
If she tells the girl her nature she is shown to be ration and semi-trustworthy throwing any folklore lady Guisse knows into disarray and making us seem the aggressive party if we try to dissuade her from trusting the outsider.

[b]" She also has plenty of reason to dislike Omara at the moment so for now our interests align. Sadly I don't have anything shoe-like to offer you, does anyone have spare belt pouches? We could likely turn those into workable slippers."/[b]

Once responses were had Stephanie touches the device and follows her sister.


M Dwarf Cleric 5, AC 18, T 10, FF 18, HP 41/41, I 0, P 4, F 5, R 2, W 8; +2 vs. fear, +2 vs. poison, spells, and SLA

Windel shakes his head and places his hand on the young dwarf's back, "Come, time to leave." He guides Gabrielle toward the pedestal. "Princess you go first, we will follow." The cleric looks to the others in the room, "Hal...Rownig you bring up the rear." With that helps her touch the device, then follows himself.


M Dwarf Rogue 5, Init 5(7), P10(12traps), HP 35/35, AC 15(16), 13 T, 10 FF, Save F: 3(5 pos/sp), R: 7, W: 3

Rownig looks to Hal, "What a long strange journey this has been." He shakes his head and motions to the transporting device. "Unless you want to have a go at that demon back there." He smiles wryly and twirls his handaxes.

Mae is lost for words, and takes some moments to gather her wits, which apparently were left in the previous room.

"Wait." Hal said. "Gabrielle, she's a demon. We made a deal with her to help find you. It was the only way to get through. You weren't there when she agreed, so while you're a part of her deal, you aren't actually protected by it beyond her agreement to help us get you out of here."

"You cannot trust her."

Stephanie vanishes after offering Gabrielle some insight into Luelle’s motivations.

When Windel steps forward to guide Gabrielle to the pedestal, Luelee steps back, and waits a moment.

Hallister then stops Windel just a t the moment before he touches Gabrielle’s hand to the pedestal and explains a bit more.

"Wait." Hal said. "Gabrielle, she's a demon. We made a deal with her to help find you. It was the only way to get through. You weren't there when she agreed, so while you're a part of her deal, you aren't actually protected by it beyond her agreement to help us get you out of here."

"You cannot trust her."

Gabrielle looks toward Hallister and her brow furrows as she struggles to understand what he is explaining.


I don’t understand, she says at last. Why would a demon help you? I don’t understand, but if you say I should not trust her, I will believe you, but anyway I cannot see her so it will not be hard for her to catch me off my guard. Why do I need …


NPC: F succubus

Oh for pity’s sake, Hallister. You worry too much. None of you should trust me, but that has nothing to do with where I come from, where I call home. You don’t know me, and I don’t know you. Hells, do you expect me to trust you? I don’t. But I want out of… Luelle shakes her hands all around her, seeming to grow a bit agitated as she talks

this DAMN place! More than you realize, obviously. So, let’s just get moving. Windel can go with Gabrielle. I’ll go next and you and Rownig can go after me.

When Windel and Gabrielle have gone, Luelle steps toward Hallister and holds out a hand

Now that they are gone, let me just say one thing, alright. Omara called that girl, Demonea. Now I thought that was a name, but that seems to be not the case. I don’t know what Omara’s use of that word means now. But she never referred to that girl as Gabrielle when she was ever going on and on about her great plans. So if we are warning people about who can be trusted and who can’t be, just keep that in mind.

"Hal...like Mae, this hurts my head. Everyone's got a dagger to our backs 'ere." He spits on the ground. "Demonea? Sounds an awful like Demon to me. Are we sure she's even a dwarf?"
