Well, we need to do something. I'll want to post something for Lothor sometime tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon.
I have no idea off the top of my head what Lothor's wisdom is, but he is a man of action. Hopefully not stupid and misguided action, but action none the less. So he would do something.
But what? If let to him he would either chuck something at the tapestry or try to move/crush the skull. The thing is, I think the best (??) choice might be to destroy one of the items. Lothor could throw an axe at the tapestry, but that wouldn't destroy it, I suspect. He could smash the skull with a bench. (Avoiding using his sword which he kinda likes in case there are side effects - a problem with throwing the axe at the tapestry as well.) I would be inclined to want a fire spell on the tapestry - probably something simple like flaming hands or such. Low level, but doing something. But Lothor can't do that.
I am in accordance with removing the eyes from the skull. It may be some sort of scrying thing (my first thoughts anyways) and I prefer our characters discussion not to be heard by something. Since everything is covered in dust, maybe the cyclops (or other nasty thing) is in slumber, and maybe this is the magical trip wire? Too bad we don't have any way to leave some sort of sentries around, as I think the magical disruption would prevent any way to communicate in different rooms (aside from shouting really loudly, hahaha).
If you want me to change the post, let me know. But Lothor is going to do something.
I was going to try burning the tapestry, but want to stay farther away - I still think someone with fire at a distance should do so. (Or does it seem like the thing might like fire? The creature seems more Salamander like than anything else.) So Lothor will crush the skull. I'd say we do both. Or tell me to change the post.
It's possible it was already cast as you do have a -1 to the number of spells memorized.
On top of that it's not listed in your spellbook so in truth you don't have that spell. However as you have used it a few times now and I did not know it was not in your spellbook before now I'll go ahead and add it as such.
See I'm a nice DM I bathe
