Jones lifts the box to his ear:

Kalen grabs a gem after it appears Feradach suffered no harm. His grin quickly dissipates as Jones puts the box to his ear.

"What ... what do you hear?"

Jones tosses the box a couple feet in disgust. "It told me that it's a trap. Gentlemen, a lesson I've learned the hard way, be wary of disembodied voices offerring knowledge or power in exchange for freedom.


Jones closes his eyes and rocks back on his heals. "I'm afraid I'm at a loss. We appear to have explored every hallway, we've found your little pile of gems which I was sure would be little more than bait but it appears I was wrong. Now I have what seems like an obvious trap. What do we do? Do we open it despite ourselves, scrounge around hoping there ard no more zombies or leave without what we came for?

[OOC: I think we still have a few places we haven't explored yet.]

Feradach retrieves the box and shoots Jones a puzzled look.

"If we are saying we are done with this place, that is fine with me. I came for treasure. We have some. I'm itching to feel the sun on my face. Still, I do not understand what you are saying about this damned box. It screams, it promises things, and yet I've heard nothing."

For the first time, Feradach studies the box.

For ease of reference, here's an updated map:



Some room keys:
10: The crystal room
15: The garden (and your current location)
18: The room where you found the boxes
Red dots: Paths not yet explored.

"Well, Nizar-Thun or some apparition that believes he's Nizar-Thun is still here. There's bound to be more treasure that way ... and possibly Jones' knowledge and power."

Kalen becomes silent as he watches Feradach examine the box.

"Does it speak to you too?"

Feradach gingerly lifts the box to his ear.

Spoiler for Feradach

Feradach hears nothing but the gentle sloshing of liquid that reminds him of his childhood on the Neva before the raiders came.

"Nothing. No dark whispers. No screams."

Feradach
has a puzzled look on his face.

"Damn it. We came here for a potion, there's something sloshing around in here. I'm going to open it."

He looks at both men; he does not actually open it until both have a chance to react.

Kalen makes sure he positions himself in front of Feradach so the box opens away from him. He swallows and then nods his head in agreement, his eyes never leaving the small wooden container.

Feradach opens the Skull box. What could go wrong?

Feradach eases open the lid, inch by inch. The hinges squeal from lack of use, the only sound in the silent room. It takes Feradach a moment to realize that everybody is holding their breath. Feradach's holding his breath. Dr. Jones is holding his breath. Kalen is holding his breath. The gaunt wizard with the long beard behind Kalen is holding his breath, or maybe he's just not breathing...

Wizardly initiative: 1d6 = (3) = 3. "Those are mine."

Somebody on your side roll 1d6 for initiative.

Edit: Rolled the wrong die. You guys would have been hard pressed to beat a 10 on a d6.

Light flashes in the wizard's otherwise empty eye sockets. He raises a bony finger at Feradach, "Get away from my property!" A burst of light shoots out from the wizard's outstretched hand, striking Feradach in the chest and knocking backward into one of the planters.

His chest smolders from burned tunic, hair, and flesh. He takes 1d8 = (3) = 3 damage.

Just before Feradach was hit by the bolt, he glimpsed what looked to be at least one clay flask inside the box.

It's your turn now, guys.

Feradach pulls the (a?) clay flask out of the box.

"This looks like it would easily break..."

[OOC: He doesn't actually break the flask... yet. The intent is to intimidate and/or distract.]

There are two clay flasks.

Feradach definitely has the wizard's attention. Hand still pointed at Feradach, he begins mumbling something under his breath.

Jones see the undead wizard begin mumbling and rushes the wizard, hoping to knock him over and disrupt the spell he anticipates.

The wizard stretches out an arm and flicks his robe. Jones gets tangled in the robe and with another flick, the wizard sends him tumbling into the corner next to Feradach.

The wizard, focused on Dr. Jones approach, doesn't notice Kalen until it's too late. Kalen drives his sword into the wizard. The wizard stumbles, smoke billowing from its eye sockets, mouth, and nose, indicating that its spell has been interrupted.

The wizard backhands Kalen, 1d20 = (6) = 6, but Kalen's able to get his blade up in time to block the assault.

Jones snorts a laugh, bounds to his feet and readies a dagger.
OOC: I'm guessing that takes a full action.

Feradach picks himself up off the ground and readies his spear one-handed; the other hand is still holding the vial.

[OOC: I'm assuming this takes a full round.]
