"Ok, next time, I open only one tusk, let's get out of here. " and he takes the good tusk to go try on the door elsewhere.

It sure does. This is cloudkill and you spell makes them immune to cloudkill.

Yay magic!

Updated Status:

Omar set off a cloudkill when he turned the green tusk, but the group was protected by Sargon's magic.

You now have two possible ways: 1. Move back to the keyhole and insert the red tusk key, or 2. go through the secret passage in the statue's belly.

Pick your poison.

Go to the keyhole and use the tusk key.

Dragox nods at Omar's suggestion and waits for the ranger to lead the way.

The tusk is the key gentleman. Though I'm certain that certain death awaits us on the other side of the door. I cannot imagine there aren't some very nasty guardians guarding their treasure hoard. Regardless, lead on.


Evil GM

Omar screws the red tusk into the thread and the door opens. there is short corridor that ends in crypt. This burial chamber is well-appointed. A large woven rug depicting three great fanged elephant heads lies in the the center of the room, while the walls are painted with dizzying geometric designs of red, green, and gold. A pair of gold candelabra flank the coffin, each holding a dozen burning vermilion candles that give off an odd, spicy scent. The casket sits on a block of reddish marble four feet high, and is made of finely finished mahogany with silver handles. Inlays of walnut on the coffin lid depict the four mud sorcerer symbols as well as geometric designs matching those on the walls.

The archway leading into the room bears the following inscription written in several languages, including common: "Thou hast reached the Inner Sanctum of Tzolo. Tzolo sleeps, waiting for the predestined time of the jezulein Rebirth.Gloat not, lest thy pride usher in thy Unalterable Doom."

Interesting... Reyondelee's voice trails off as she pulls her mapmaking accoutrement from her backpack and scrawls down this new information, being meticulous about writing down the scripts and runes in every language.

After taking time to update her map scrolls, and putting the tube and quill back in her pack, she looks at her three gentleman comrades and says, I seriously doubt this crypt is going to just offer us up treasure. If there are any preparatory spells we need, I think it best we cast them now. Greater Invisibility anyone?


Evil GM

Sargon you immediately see that the flames lighting the passage and chamber a magical. You suspect they flickered on once the secret door was opened. There is tickle of smoke coming from each one.

Omar where are you searching first?

Archway in.


Evil GM

Omar as you search the room you think it odd that the candles came to life, certainly some sort of magic trick, and you make your way towards the coffin in the middle of the room. The lid to the coffin looks as if it will move off easily enough and does not appear to be trapped - at least not from the outside - and the casket also looks like it can be moved off the the reddish marble base.

Dragox moves forward to assist Omar with the lid to the coffin.


Evil GM

Sargon make a spellcraft check.
Anyone with knowledge nobility can make a roll.

The coffin lid slides off revealing a mummified body. The corpse is wearing jewelry made of platinum covered in complex geometric patterns and glyphs. It has wide bracelets on it's wrists and ankles, a broad wide collar around its neck, three rings (a camel, a pig, and a hippo), a circlet, and perfectly fitted mask. The corpse wears a platinum breastplate with six peridots.

The corpse does not get up.

Oh great!

Edit: Whew!!


Evil GM

You each make notice that there is something sweet with the torch smoke, Omar actually yawns. Sargon and Dragox realize they candle smoke is a sleeping agent. Nevertheless, the mummified corpse does not sit up and attack, it is in fact deceased. On close inspection of the coffin Omar does notice that the casket can easily slide off of the marble block. With a nod, Dragox pushes the casket sideways which reveals the outline of a small locked compartment.

Omar will inspect the compartment for traps.

then unlock it if untrapped.

Evil GM

Omar you do not see any traps and the compartment opens up easily enough given your skill. Once the compartment door is open the marble block starts to sink slowly into the floor.

What is everyone doing?

Everyone other than Omar can make a perception check.

Sargon will continue looking around the room for any other effects from the lowering coffin.

When I imagine the coffin grinding it's way down, I picture another stoneway opening

"Well it doesn't feel like a trap to me, but we'll see. "


Evil GM

A few seconds later the marble becomes flush with the ground, a click happens, then a black portcullis falls into place barring the exit you came through. Sargon scans the walls looking for a secret opening.

I'm going to put everyone in initiative so there is clean flow of actions. You are not under an attack.

Rey doesn't wait, she casts Greater Invisibility on herself, and as she winks out of vision, she blows a kiss to Sargon. She then moves to the southwest bottom left of the map corner of the room.

Dragox keeps his weapon at the ready, not seeing anything untowards.

With everyone anticipating the worse to happen soon: it does. The grinding sound of stone on stone echoes throughout as the sound wall begins to move northward. The room is getting smaller. It's moving at a 10 ft per round rate.

"Omar, can you stop this trap!?". Dragox moves to the closest moving wall and draws his sword, ready to chip away at it, if it doesn't stop moving.
