Grundig looks at the cloth bound figure before him and smiles to himself he holds his holly aloft calling to the god of flame as a sphere of fire engulfs the bandaged creature. damage 3d6=12 reflex negates dc16 save.
 GRUNDIG: round 1 of 7
 DUNGEON MASTER: The creature seems strangely vulnerable to fire: not only does it utterly fail to avoid Grundig's spell, but its wrappings readily catch fire in the blaze, turning the thing into a walking torch. It writhes in apparent agony.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias focuses the divine fury of Gorum (channel smite) to surround his heavy mace with a flickering grey flame (channel smite, destructive smite & power attack)

[End rounds.]
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan lets out a sigh of relief as the mummy drops to the floor defeated. "Let the filth burn for a while. The smell regardless how foul won't bother me," replies Johan as he spits on the undead creature.

 DUNGEON MASTER: The ring has 33 charges.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: After a brief discussion it is agreed Johan will use the Ring of the Ram. He slices the mummies finger off with his longsword and carefully slides it away from the arm before wiping it clean and placing it on his left hand ring finger.

 DUNGEON MASTER: While Solar's vantage point hardly provides an unobstructed view of the entire premises, the area he does see certainly appears unoccupied.

Perception (trap) check: 1d20+12+3 = 29

 DUNGEON MASTER: The dull rush of water can be heard from below.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias casts Shield of Faith on both himself and Johan as they move carefully down through the trapdoor the faceless golem was found in.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar suggest we use the ropes again in case the stairs fail
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "Sounds like a good idea. I can hear running water and this could be some kind of trap as you suggested." Johan secures a length of rope to one of the wooden benches in the main enterance room.
Johan then inspects the staircase leading down for any traps.
Percpetion check (traps): 1d20+12+3 = 20

 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar suggests being careful he doesn't like the idea that you can't see whats in the jar her reminds them of the flaming skulls
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "I'm not sure about these. On one hand not seeing inside is suspicious and yet the faceless golem may have been guarding whatever is inside. Why I don't know," replies Johan.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "DId we want to fuck with these or leave them?"
 SOLAR CE’NEA: I suggest leaving them alone
 GRUNDIG: grundig grinns ear to ear  yer lets open them
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "Son of a bitch! Well if that's the case let's leave them alone. We don't know what's inside them," Johan and Mesodias close the door and head back upstairs.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar says if you really want to open them, we could carry it up the stairs and drop them one by one to see what is in them
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "Look if you can tell me what could be inside I don't mind going that but light proof glass containers is just asking for trouble," replies Johan.

 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar says I don't think there is anything of interest here lets head back up
 DUNGEON MASTER: The party heads back up the stairs and into the room with the secret passage.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The secret stairway ends in this room, where three dissected, preserved harpies sit in huge bell jars, along with jars containing four stuffed bats, the skeletal front legs and head of a griffon, and the preserved wing of a roc which is slowly losing its feathers. A ladder leads up to a trapdoor in the ceiling.
 GRUNDIG: grundig casts detect magic and looks about the room
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan stares wide eyed at the assortment of unique creatures preserved along the walls. "How the fuck did this guy get all these things, and why? It's just such a weird collection of things... I've never seen anything like it before."
 GRUNDIG: this bloks a compleat nutter
 SOLAR CE’NEA: I think he likes to make golems hence the Beast calling hime his father.  however for some reason the Beast got intelligence
 SOLAR CE’NEA: which is unusual
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan moves to inspect the trapdoor for traps, prefering to avoid tampering with the unsual trophies that adorn the room.

 DUNGEON MASTER: Johan discovers no traps.
 GRUNDIG: grundig checks the door for traps

 GRUNDIG: grundig caushisly climbs the ladder squinting as ho opens the hatch realising he forgot to put his fingers in his ears

 GRUNDIG: grundig serches the room for tresure and seckret compartments

perception 1d20+14=15
 GRUNDIG: he nalso casts detect magic
 DUNGEON MASTER: The moment Grundig enters the room, a number of green runes light up along the floor and on the beams overhead. A nasty, acidic fog fills both the attic and the chamber below.
 GRUNDIG: grundig jumps down the opening and runs for the door

acrobatics 1d20+2=11
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan moves instantly out of the room to join Mesodias and Shadow.
 DUNGEON MASTER: Grundig and Johan move as quickly as they can out of the green fog. The acid eats their cloths, skin, and lungs, dealing 2d6 damage to Johan and 4d6 damage to Grundig.
 DUNGEON MASTER: After about a minute and a half, the fog disperses.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: The acidic vapour burns at Johan's face and exposed neck leaving his breathless as he vomits and heaves the poisonous gas from his lungs.

 GRUNDIG: grundig takes 13 points of damage
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar yells out to others to see if they are alright
 GRUNDIG: a little burnt but ok
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "We are find now, the acid gas seems to go away after a moment." Johan ruffles his hair in frustration, "I can't believe I missed something like that. You were wise to wait down the stairs while we went up the trapdoor."
 SOLAR CE’NEA: I didn't like the idea of us all being trapped in one area I wasn't really thinking of  trap but another creature
 GRUNDIG: my fault should have serched the room aswell as the trapdoor
 GRUNDIG: grundig makes his way back up the ladder and serches the room perception 1d20+14=21
 GRUNDIG: casting detect magic
 DUNGEON MASTER: Grundig discovers nothing in the room. It is bare and empty, although he does spot a few recent footprints in the dust.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "Just be careful, there could be something invisible in the room that tried to avoid the acid trap," replies Johan.
 GRUNDIG: grundig trys to detirmon the creatur or huminoide they may bleong to knolage nature 1d20+9=27
 DUNGEON MASTER: Grundig decides that these creatures were humans, or close relations thereof.
 GRUNDIG: also checks if he can see where they lead

survival 1d20+14=32
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan climbs up the stairs to join Grundig.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The footprints lead in and out of the attic. Grundig notices that they seem to cluster around the places where the green runes activated, as if the humans stood at these places for several minutes each.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias will stand guard with Shadow at the base of the ladder.
 GRUNDIG: grundig checks for any hidden doors perception 1d20+14=23

 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias casts Invisibility Purge before climbing up the ladder and inspecting the room above with the mysterious footsteps.
 DUNGEON MASTER: A low red light washes over the area effected by Mesodias' spell. Nothing new is revealed.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias grunts, displeased nothing is revealed that can be crushed into the ground. He leaves the room in frustration.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "Perhaps we can cross the rope bridge and heal up before setting up camp for the night?"
 SOLAR CE’NEA: I think that might be a good idea, things seem to be getting more and more dangerous.  I would llso like to keep an eye out for the Beast
 GRUNDIG: "i agree that would be good" grundig says as he peals bits of burnt skin from his arm
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: While they are all within close proximity, Mesodias uses a channel healing burst to heal the party of their wounds.
