(OOC: Successful Action Ptolmek Skarab. While you are not adept at the Search skill, it is clear the dowel on the western wall does not match the other dowels. The empty dowel is a lever, which when pulled down reveals a hidden door.)
Morcant examines the auras spread throughout the room. The faint essence of fire is evident in Ptolmek, and Morcant decides to ask Ptolmek for help bringing light to the room. He follows Ptolmek toward the western wall and diplomatically requests any item which might light the candle.
"Ptolmek, my good sir, as you may have noticed, the room is quite dark. And dank actually," Morcant droned. "Well - it occurs to me that the backpack you acquired may indeed contain..." As Morcant raises a hand to capture Ptolmek's attention, his voice stops short - falling silent without ever leaving his mouth. The southern wall shook once, then moaned. Movement throughout the room stopped immediately as the entire party shifted it's gaze to the slowly sliding bookshelf.
"... a flint and tinder... please."
(OOC: Successful Action Morcant Gunnar, please add 0:05 min to your Diplpomacy Skill and to your Charisma Ability Focus Times.)
OOC: End of Round 6, on to your next turn! You will also notice a couple of significant changes to the game.
1) The grid is now scaled differently. Instead of A-U by 1-21, the map grid was resized to account for the larger four-square block. The scale is now A-J by 1-10. Movement is handled exactly the same as before, but should move quite a bit faster.
2) The Player Tokens have changed scale to match the scale of the map. When more than one player occupies a block, the tokens can be scaled down to the smaller size to show up to four occupants on a single space.
3) Each Game Master post will now take the form of it's own blog entry. With over 63 comments on the first Encounter's post alone - the scrolling was getting to be too much! I am surprised no one complained. Well - it frustrated me - so the plan is to post a fresh blog entry for each Round. The Game Master Summary and any fresh information will be contained in the primary content. Your Turn should continue to be played out in the Comments.
Now back to the Vaults!
