Dane: [GM] You continue deeper down the passageway. Up ahead there is a faint orange-red light flickering and the passage seems to open up a bit.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey slinks forward ahead of Techie. "Lil' miss, why dun ya let me take point from 'ere on?"
Dane: [Techie] Techie nods and steps back quietly.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey comes out of the passageway, guns first, then the rest of him.
Dane: [GM] This room is quite big and circular in shape. There is a narrow outer walkway, which you are currently on. Beyond that is a steep drop into boiling lava, which lights the room. In the center is a circular stone platform with an altar on it. There, on the altar, sits a magnificent crystal the size of a human head.
Ian: [OOC] Dammit Dane.
Dane: [GM] Hmm?
Ian: [OOC] I was getting all sorts of Temple of Doom vibes off this room and you using a head as a reference size for a crystal just brought Kingdom of the Crystal Skull into it. Now I'm thinking about Kingdom of the Crystal Skull! Get it out! Get it out!
Soo: [OOC] There, there dear. There's treatments for this. I'll come over with some bleach and a funnel after we finish, okay?
Ian: [OOC] It was just so bad!
Joe: [OOC] I'm uploading my character's portrait now for everyone.
Kyle: [OOC] That's just a picture of Shia LaBeouf.
Joe: [OOC] Exactly.
Ian: [OOC] It burns! It burns! Why Lucas?! There didn't need to be aliens!
Soo: [OOC] We're going to get through this. Just hold on.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey looks around for some way across.
Dane: [GM] There is no evident way across. The gap between the walkway and the platform is about forty feet. There's some chains dangling down off the walkway, probably from an old bridge.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] "Looks like we got ourselves one'a those conundrums."
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali looks down at the lava. "Hmm... we have chains. But how would we get them secure on the far side?"
Ian: [Mari Shasho] "It's not like throwing fireballs is going to help this..."
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "Actually, it might."
Soo: [Kali dVostog] "Care to explain?"
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "We'll fashion a weight and throw it across. Then we have Mari throw fireballs at it until it melts and becomes sticky. Think of it as distance welding."
Kyle: [OOC] I don't think that would work.
Joe: [OOC] That depends on a key factor.
Ian: [OOC] Which is?
Joe: [OOC] Dane, are you familiar with metallurgy or industrial welding?
Dane: [GM] No?
Joe: [OOC] Then it will work.
Dane: [GM] I'm right here you know...
Soo: [OOC] A character's life shouldn't hinge on the people in charge ignoring the way things work.
Ian: [OOC] Just like when Indy hid in that refridge- OH GOD IT'S BACK.
