More Choices......

As the ice tumbled away Ulthok saw words appear written on the door.

Something tapped me on the shoulder
Something whispered “come with me
Leave the world of men behind you
Come where care will never find you”

“Come and follow, let me bind you
Where, in that dark, silent sea
Tempest of the world n’er rages
There to dream away the ages”

Heedless of time’s turning pages
Leave the world of man behind you
Come where care will never find you
There to dream away the ages”

Something tapped me on the shoulder

"Oh my, that sounds a bit nasty."

Ulthok turned back to went back to the party and told them what he had read. As the warmth around Sirene started to soak into him he suggested they find out if there might be words on the other door.

Looking up at Sirene he saw the concentration on her face and guessed she was about to try something.

"Everyone backup behind Sirene, use the stairs to clear the room but stay in the warmth. Ulthok moved to the Enchantress's side and prepared to help or protect her.

(If anything should happen to Sirene to break her control Temp spell Ulthok will cast Leomund’s Tiny Hut to provide a safe location from the cold for the party. It will cover the group.)

Here too . . .

Lothor, as usual, was both impressed and a bit nervous about the power of magic. The ice in front of the door essentially disintegrated. In fact, that was exactly what it did according to the title Ulthok had given the spell. It was a bit unnerving to think that something like that could be done to . . . well, anything, really. But especially the thought that it could be done to something living. No visible threat, just there and then . . . not there. Ouch. Or maybe not ouch, just nothingness. . .

He shook his head to clear it of such contemplations. He was glad that Ulthok and the other spellcasters were on his side. And that included Sirene and her spell of protection from the temperature. He didn't like it down here. The line between life and frozen death was a fine one and completely dependent on someone else's magical power. He have prederred a pile of furs for warmth, but doubted even polar bear furs would be enough here. He needed the magic.

And he'd continue to need it for awhile. There didn't seem to be much he could do about the situation. He'd need to stand back and watch the spell casters try things. And so the big warrior held his great axe and stood guard. Were the statues moving? Was anything happening in the pool? Might the door open? He kept his eyes open. At least the cold meant the salamander was less likely to pop in on them here. Maybe. He probably couldn't count on that either.

And so he did what warriors do. He stood watch while the mages did their "magey things."

A song to the siren

The pulse of magic surged through her as the ice fell from the northern doorway. Thick walls of ice had dampened the magic beyond them, but with them gone she could feel it all clearly. It was the pool that called to her the most. Somehow, Siréne knew that magic and yet it was foreign to her. This was a magic she had never called upon herself, but still its song was familiar.

The fey witch narrowed her eyes to stare another moment into the pool before turning her gaze to the western doorway. They knew too little and were guessing a riddles in the dark. What message might lay hidden beneath the wall of ice? It was time they had answers to their questions.

Siréne guided the group as far from the doors as she could take them while still keeping the western door within her magical reach. Then the witch began her work.

A single, wordless note left Siréne's lips in a clear soprano. There was magic in this song. With fey magic she held the song in her hands and it continued without her voice. Taking a final breath, Siréne released the voiceless song to spin into the western door. As the note flew it grew higher and higher in pitch until it was beyond hearing, shattering the frozen crystals.

((OOC: Casts Shatter to target the Western Door))

...

The pool momentarily forgotten, the hole above the West door became the new focus. It was not overly big, about the size of a human head; however, it was odd enough to draw their attention. The came up with 2 main plans. One was to for Rayne to ride on the giant Aliya and use her flame blade. The other option was for Sirene to blast it with a spell of shatter. The latter won out.

Following everyone behind Sirene into the stair way. She made sure to stand a little way back, after casting and testing Iron Vigil to make sure she would not die from the cold, as to not be shoulder to shoulder with anyone else. Unfortunately, she probably would not be able to see what happened the instant it did, but it beat everyone being caught up if they had to swing their weapons. If it were to summon something large, the last thing they needed was to all be literally hit in one swing.

A Very Short Post

With the casting of Sirene’s Shatter spell the ice around the West door and female pillars was blown away in seconds leaving the door and pillars even clearer of ice then that of the North door.

Though the party was a ways away writing could clearly be seen on the door appearing to be in the same language as on the North door. However to read the words the party or one of them would have to once more move closer.

(DM OOC: Ok a very short post as not much to work with. Ok people give me something to work with for next Sunday’s post. As of now next post next Sunday the 26th)
