Soo: [OOC] Okay so let's head on over to that temple entrance.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali starts to walk across the snow towards the temple. "Best we get inside before we run into anyone else, I'd say."
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari tosses the potion she had to Bailey and follows.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Walks and sips down the potion.
Dane: [GM] You're two wounds are healed Kyle.
Joe: [GR-210] GR-210 is still hopping up and down on the brutally murdered corpse on the ground in front of him. He skitters off to follow the group when they walk past him. "I'll be back soon my love. Don't go decaying on me."
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari looks down at GR-210 and raises an eyebrow.
Joe: [GR-210] "Err... beep beep. I am a robot. I do not do unspeakable things to corpses."
Dane: [GM] Moving along before that can be explained. The temple entrance is far bigger than it seemed at a distance, the stone face of the temple appears to have been carved directly into the mountain. A line of columns flanks either side of the open stone passage deep into the darkness."
Joe: [OOC] Ionic, Doric, or Corinthian?
Dane: [GM] What?
Joe: [OOC] The columns.
Dane: [GM] One second, wikipedia.
Dane: [GM] How the hell is that important?
Joe: [OOC] Just wanted to know, Mr. Worldbuilder.
Kyle: [OOC] Going to go out on a limb here and advise Dane NOT to answer that question.
Ian: [OOC] I don't know why he wants to know, but it will somehow involve impalement.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey pulls out a small lamp. "I guess we're goin' in." He begins to walk inside.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari walks behind Bailey.
Ian: [OOC] Dane, please note the word 'behind' there in case there's a trap.
Kyle: [OOC] Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Joe: [GR-210] GR-210 leaves the horribly unconvicing columns and heads down into the darkness, skittering about the group's legs.
Dane: [GM] Soo, what are you doing?
Soo: [OOC] Back sorry. Columns are pretty, got lost on an image search.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali walks behind the group, her pistol out just in case.
Dane: [GM] The stairs lead down for at least a couple stories before you enter a foyer area. The walls, for what you can see of them, are decorated in the faded remains of what were likely once vibrant frescos and carvings. Columns support the ceiling here. The foyer is long and continues ahead. At the far end, you can see something casting light around a corner.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] "I think I had a room at the summer manor done in this style."
Soo: [OOC] Anything to read here? On the walls maybe?
Dane: [GM] There's writing as part of the frescos on the wall, but you don't know what it is.
Soo: [OOC] But we know someone who does.
Kyle: [OOC] You. You took every language skill in the game, remember?
Joe: [OOC] Oh yeah, but I'd really rather not. I'm not feeling up to it. GR-210 is more about bleeding than reading.
Soo: [OOC] Read the damn wall before I repurpose you into a hat.
Joe: [GR-210] GR reads the wall, under duress.
Dane: [GM] This appears to be less of a temple and more of an elaborate tomb. The writings here are all curses and wards to various Old Velthri gods. The name of the person buried here is not on any of the walls in this room.
Dane: [GM] I rolled knowledge checks for you all too, now that it's identified. Mari, you know from study and past travel that the Velthri Empire dominated much of the continent over 2000 years ago. They were known for their discipline army, elaborate religion, and proficiency with alchemy.
Joe: [OOC] You know, that whole 'bleeding no reading' thing got me thinking. Wouldn't it have been awesome if there was a spin off of Reading Rainbow where LeVar Burton was a paid assassin?
Soo: [OOC] Think you're confusing the word 'awesome' with the word 'Joe-your-an-idiot'.
Joe: [OOC] Picture a Mafia guy/ I can stab him right in the eye!/ Just take some knives / and end some lives! / The bleeding rainbooooooow!
