Thread: The Shadow of a New Day

  1. #581

    Thrik relays Grayson's thoughts to the elder who gives what Grayson can only assume is supposed to be a shrug and a few clicks which Thrik translates, "Clk clk. The kreen don't travel great waters. Clk Clk. Kreen are happy to hunt the deserts. Clk clk. It is the kreen way of life. Clk clk."

    Owen steps closer to the ancient drawings, something drawing him to stand between the painted feet of the four armed being. He almost feels like there is something there when he notices a faint crease in the shape of a tall rectangle... As if someone had painted over a door! Looking closer he can see what might be assumed to be a crack in the stone, but if Owen didn't know any better it looked like a keyhole.

    Owen's eyes widen to the size of dinner plates. He points at his discovery.

    "A secret door!" he squeaks. He clears his throat. In a deeper but still trembling with excitement voice, he asks, "Have you had a chance to explore behind it yet, by any chance?"

    Thrik continues to translate for the 'ancient' thri'kreen, "Clk clk. The kreen have not seen. Clk Clk. The kreen did not know. Clk Clk," Thrik looks closer and asks a question to the elder and returns the reply, "Clk Clk. Key is lost to the kreen. Clk Clk."

    (sorry, long wait time with a short response. This weekend was a lot of studying)

    "Oh, a missing key! That does pose a problem, doesn't it?"

    Owen smiles sweetly at the elder Thri'keen as he continues.

    "I do have some skill in picking locks, you know. Perhaps I could attempt to open this door for you? And perhaps... if it's not asking too much... we'll, perhaps my companions and I could join you when you go to see what's behind it?"

    The elder contemplates this before slowly nodding and gesturing to the door.

    Grayson's hand slips to his blade, whatever was waiting for them beyond the door was likely harmless, but it didn't hurt to be ready

    First things first: Owen casts Detect Magic and focuses intently on the door, searching for possible magic traps.

    If he doesn't find anything magical, he directs his attention towards searching for more mundane traps.

    If all seems safe, he extricates his thieves tools from his pockets and cheerfully dedicates himself to picking the hidden doors lock.

    The party readies themselves as Owen assesses the doorway.

    Owen's magic notes a low level transmutation aura, but as he looks around he sees that this aura actually perfuses everything in the pyramid. A quick look at the doorway doesn't reveal any traps and feeling relatively confident he gets to work on the lock itself.

    He finds it is an odd lock, unlike any that he's worked with before, he's not even sure if he can feel any tumblers moving.... But with enough work he finally manages to get SOMETHING to click. But... the door doesn't budge. An'drye steps forward to assist with the door and with a firm shove the paint around the edges tears and the doorway sinks in a foot and then slides into the wall.

    A long hallway looms down farther than even Grayson's darkvision can see... But the hallway is seemingly empty.

    Owen pulls a sunrod from his bag of holding and activates it. His face now glowing with both ecstacy and magical light, he beckons towards the hallway.

    "Shall I check for traps?" he offers.

    Castus nods as Tristan responds, "That's probably a good idea," the two thri'kreen seem surprised that there actually was something behind the door.
