Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will approach close enough to read the scrawl, then he will report back to the group.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will cast Vanish and head towards the alcoves to get a better look.

"Be right back". Gandel disappears before the eyes of the Dune Squad.

Gandel will approach as close as 20' to peer into the first alcove.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"Let's search the rest of this level then we can explore that ceiling Karek".

let's head north first.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"Well I think we should move forward. Clearly Xaven went this way but I would avoid touching the rods, just in case. I can't tell what the aims of Xaven are Xerissa. He is here as an agent to retrieve something for the Khyrasma and it seems that thing is the power of the Pactstone itself. I agree with Hal on that account, she can't be allowed to access it powers".


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel chuckles, "The note is from our friend Xaven reminding us not to touch anything. Still I am not sure what the enchantment magic will do if we pass the threshold. Can anyone dispel it before we proceed? Still not seeing any obvious traps from my vantage point".


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"The auras on the ceiling above are enchantments. I think the chalk on the floor is writing, going to see if I can get a closer look".

Prior to moving forward, Gandel will cast Cat's Grace on himself to improve his Dexterity by 4 points. Then he will move 10' feet closer.

Wish I had Levitation here...


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel gets within 20' to make his inspection.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will relay what he has discovered to the Dune Squad.

Gandel inches a bit closer to scrutinize the area and ascertain whether this aura is a trap of some kind that he can attempt to disable.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will, predictably, Detect Magic.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"Let's head east. Something must have happened to the Potentate's bat, let's find out what that something was".


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel turns to the group, "Should we clear the rest of this level before we come back here? I fear that if we go to yet another level through this tube we may be leaving some clue behind on this level".


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel turns to Karek, "Let's head west from the boot room and keep exploring that corridor. Now that Hal is not yelling at scoundrels and beating on the floor maybe we will have his full attention".

Gandel grin a bit before he starts heading off in that direction.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel shrugs, "Much as I have to admit it I am inclined to agree with Hal on this one. The Potentate is right though, we need to expend our resources sparingly for the time being so let's just let them go".

Gandel reaches into his sack and retrieves the second Wand he lifted from Sceptre and loops both on his belt for ease of access.

"Well, with those boots we found, we certainly know we approached the chamber from the wrong direction. Let's continue exploring and see what we see".

Gandel will continue moving through the hallways carefully with his whip in hand just in case.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will reach into his bag and grab the Wand of Scorching Ray and charge forward as far as he can get but no closer that 5' behind Hal.

Beetle:
The Wand of True Strike seems to be almost a waste, a full round action to activate then the next action must be an attack or the effects wear off. With the exception of a sneak attack or surprise, I am hard pressed to find a use for it as its range is self only. I would like to use that Wand on Gandel to increase his skills with the whip to try to disarm Xaven but it just seems like two more rounds would result in the entire fiasco being over anyway!


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Yes Gandel will move forward to be in a better position to assist.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel's mouth drops open in disbelief at the scene unfolding.

He readies an action fro a Gallant Inspiration should anyone else choose to act this round.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Initiative 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 24

Gandel is in the room at the moment so he will also hold until the end of the round no matter his initiative score.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel looks at the shoes from afar initially. His curiosity peaked, as Karek enters the room, Gandel follows.

He heads to the shelf where the boots are located and looks to see if any are missing and if so how many may have been there prior.

Gandel will search the shelf for traps before attempting to grab a set.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will cast Detect Magic and examine the room.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel hears Hal's statement and agrees but follows Karek as he has had his fill of bantering with Xaven. If it is too dark to thoroughly examine the room, Gandel will cast Dancing Lights to illuminate it.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"I agree with the Potentate Hal. Consider also the fact that we are all now bound to that Stone some way. We do not know if destroying it would break our connection or have a worse effect upon us. Karek, lead the way!"

Gandel will stick next to Karek keeping an eye out for traps, let me know if I need to make any rolls.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel cuts off his story and grins.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Yes Beetle my error, apologies. DC should be 16.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will move into position to attempt to fascinate both Xaven and Hroken.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will use his Bardic Performance ability to Fascinate both Hrokon and Xaven, will save DC 19 to resist this ability.

As combat has yet to break out (after all no one has drawn weapons), I do believe that this will work.

Fascinate (Su):
At 1st level, a bard can use his performance to cause one or more creatures to become fascinated with him. Each creature to be fascinated must be within 90 feet, able to see and hear the bard, and capable of paying attention to him. The bard must also be able to see the creatures affected. The distraction of a nearby combat or other dangers prevents this ability from working. For every three levels the bard has attained beyond 1st, he can target one additional creature with this ability. Each creature within range receives a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the bard's level + the bard's Cha modifier) to resist.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel initiative 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel advances carefully with Karek shaking his head over Hal's rage at the inanimate object.

Gandel will keep an eye out for traps as this place has been a near death trap thus far.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel nods to Donkor, "Agreed, it is likely that we will come upon something which will explain how this phenomenon took place".

Gandel winces at Hal's outburst.

He continues, "Which leads us back to our last question, North or East..."

Gandel pauses once he hears Hal's axe strike the floor.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"It seems we should not have entered the chamber without the protection and assent of the Four Pharaohs. Seems a bit late for that warning now though it would seem that for once the effect was more beneficial than harmful. I guess the next question is North or East?"


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel sighs and follows the tough Dwarf through squinting in anticipation of something happening.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel does not cross over just yet. He turns to Moonpate, "Master Moonpate, perhaps we can summon an Ally to explore this area before we proceed?"


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Damn, forgot about that! Been a long time since I have used first level wizard spells... Well Gandel could certainly use a +20 on his attacks.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will again cast Dancing Lights and send them in the area towards where he saw runes on the ceiling and walls.

Well if they have to be here, I had might as well do what I came here to do.

What does Gandel, and the rest of the group, see?


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel is close to Karek, wherever he is. Gandel will keep the Wand of True Strike handy to utilize on Karek, in case he REALLY needs to hit something. Of course the Professor is also containing his excitement at finally reaching the room with the Runes he believe may unlock the mystery of the Pyramid.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel joins Karek looking irritably at Hurgah for even showing Xaven the archway.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel pokes at Hurgah who is distracted by his new toys. "Well?"

Hurgah:
Reposting my comment from the prior page: "Karek and I found a chamber with script that I want to investigate. I don't think I want our new friends knowing anything about it. If the Khyrasma hired them to retrieve the powers of the Pact Stone we need to keep them away from it until I can ascertain how the magic of this place works. Of course, we also have to keep a look out for that Demon. Any suggestions on how to accomplish both without splitting ourselves up again?"


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

I think Gandel would have the same problem, I don't believe he is trained in the use of the wand-rifle.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel would like to take the (i) wand of scorching ray (12 charges)
and (ii) wand of true strike (11 charges)


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel ignores Xaven and heads towards the Reaver keeping his voice low,

Hurgah:
"Karek and I found a chamber with script that I want to investigate. I don't think I want our new friends knowing anything about it. If the Khyrasma hired them to retrieve the powers of the Pact Stone we need to keep them away from it until I can ascertain how the magic of this place works. Of course, we also have to keep a look out for that Demon. Any suggestions on how to accomplish both without splitting ourselves up again?"


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel turns to Xaven, "Our goals are on a need to know basis and you do not need to know Xaven. Do what we ask you to do and you and your partner will walk away to earn your keep another day".


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

"Now that Sceptre has been dealt with we should continue to explore this complex. Suekhan is simply too mobile for us to deal with at this point, as we move forward perhaps we can find a better spot to face him. Besides, if we accomplish our goal and get out we leave him trapped here and his presence becomes a non-factor".


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

I have been intentionally conservative with Gandel's and Hal's spell usage :-)


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel comes off of delay and casts Glitterdust in the area where he believes Scepter to be located.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will shout out to Hurgah, Pate and Hal, "The halfling is free!"

He will then go on delay as he is in the back but will ready himself to cast Gallant Inspiration should anyone appear to need it.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Where is your sense of adventure Karek? If the villain doesn't meet with partial success: (1) we will be very bored adventurers and (2) the DM won't have ANY fun at all!


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel will run along with Karek glancing back at the archway longingly.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel winces as he feels a pain in his hand, the same hand which Donkor sliced open.

"Hmmm. That WAS strange! Still, we need to figure out how to operate this contraption if we have any hope o getting out of here and thwarting our foes". Gandel looks at Karek trying to ascertain if the dwarf will come with him or pull him back towards the others.


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel turns to Karek excitedly, "I need to pass through the archway to see the rest of this, let's hurry up and do it before Hal gets back!"

Gandel moves towards the archway unless Karek stops him...


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Are Gandel and Karek close enough to read the inscriptions yet?


Male Halfling Bard (Archivist) 6/Pathfinder Delver 2

Gandel anxiously approaches the hieroglyphs no other living person has seen for millenia with barely contained excitement!
