Main group you have not seen or heard from Avan for a while now. Do you go look for him?
Meanwhile as Avan gets up and tries to leave he is blocked and then shoved towards the female. She looks at you and tells you to come closer>
"Now a soldier's spirit is keenest in the morning; by noonday it has begun to flag; and in the evening, his mind is bent only on returning to camp." -- Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Main group - You can see many places that you can use to climb back up the 400 feet if you so wish.
Avan - You can see that the chair of bones is made up of giant bones, gnoll bones, human bones and many other types of bones you can tell she has a human head but there is no glimpses of what is under the dark velvet looking robes. The figure does seem to be of human shape however. She looks down at you as asks how many are in your group? How soon are they going to attack? Who is the leader? Who is the strongest?
Main party. Arilynia starts up the rope then falls. She will have to try again.
Avan - She looks to you and says, That is not how it works for a prisoner to ask questions is out of the norm. Thank you for telling me what I needed to know. Guard go throw him in with the rest of the vermin. The watchers in the room will grab you and drag you outside and toss you into a cage with the Gnolls. Right before they toss you in the touch you in the side with a small steel rod that shocks you (Think tazer) They laugh as they lock the door and walk away.
Main party Ariliynia tries to climb up the rope again but again falls back to the ground. She was not injured besides her pride for these tow failures. What are you going to do now?
Avan did not see the small rod long enough to see what it was but he does know that it worked rather well. The Gnolls in the cage with him give him a wide birth as they are unsure of him. When feeding time comes the watchers bring over a sack filled with half eaten meat still hanging on the bones. They dump the sack in the center of the cage then depart. The Gnolls pounce on the bones and take them all backing away quickly from Avan.
Avan - You can tell that these prisoners have not been treated well. They are have starved and when you produce the everful mug they will gladly drink it. They are as thirsty as they are starved. The watchers do not watch you closely but they do come by time to time. When they do come by the gnolls get as far from them as possible. When you see the fog start to lift some you hear a female enchanting that causes the fog to thicken up again.
Avan - The antimagic properties will not allow you to cast any spell but a item that has magic like a ever full mug will work. The magic in the cure light wounds wand does not work however. Seem if it is a active magic it will work but inactive magic will not.
Group you summon a hippogriff to take someone up to the top. Once the person gets there they will find nothing at the top has changed since you were there last night.
Avan- You can see the door to the cage opens outwards. Sticking your hand out of the cage will get it wacked with a stick a thin flexible stick that causes pain but not much damage. The gnolls atay away from you as you do this. The watchers are not allowing any body part from exiting the cages. They careless what you do inside as long as you stay inside. You can see the same happens at other cages too. You do keep a hold of the flask but barely. Dripping acid on the iron will cause a bit of smoke as it sizzles.
Avan you begin working on using the acid to burn through the latch. With it being in the middle of one of the flat bars it is hard to get at and takes time to splash it on to it. You figure this will take a couple hours if you are not discovered if it works and you have enough acid.
Bastion drops a rock with a note attached to it. How long do you wish to wait for a reply?
