Subject: Round 21 - The Door Opens... kind of.

Virro: (7 + 2Cir = 9) You barter with Blearm quite successfully, and are delighted when he gives you a fine oak longbow in return for your currently broken weapon. You are not quite sure where either your new longbow appeared from, or where your old bow went, but right now you don't really care. Lost Cracked Bow, Gained Longbow (+5)
Uriel: (9) You use your powers in a way that most had not thought to use them before. Whilst you are very sure that there are no magic users in the next room, you are not 100% sure there are no sentient creatures in the next room at all. You did however feel the presence of several magic, and magical, items in the next room.
Keegra: (2) You try to speak but you just can't make the words come out. In fact the co-ordination between your teeth, your brain and your tongue is so bad that you manage to bite your tongue whilst trying to speak, badly. This doesn't stop you from trying however, and when you realize that talking isn't your best bet right now, in your gesturing you manage to strike the door, slightly harder than you intended. The pain jars your arm slightly, but with your bash the door seems to pop out of its hinges and fall to the ground, revealing to you Room 6. Gained (Bitten Tongue, -1 Inj, 1 turns remaining) Lost 3 health.
Xiv'riit: (12) You give your longsword to Blearm and in return he carefully hands you an exquisite longsword. It is only after he has handed it to you, and you have picked it up, that you realise that he had kept some cloth between his hand and the sword whilst giving it to you. Before you can question why, a searing pain ripples through your body, cause you to yell out in agony, however after a brief few, but painful, seconds the pain is gone. Looking at Blearm he squeaks "Sword is now bounds to you, it can never go too far from you and will always return. Onlys way to release you from this is to die." Despite the morbid way the Kobold ends his speech, you can't help but feel empowered by your sword. Gained Fatal Touch (+6, Lethal Touch, Return Policy) Lost 6 Health.
Davug: () You wait in the Last Bastion for Virro's next orders
Shaban: () You wait in the Room 4 for Virro's next orders
Room 5: There are five male warriors standing a little bit back from the door in a line. The outer two are Lizardmen, whilst the other three are all dwarves The dwarves are clad in plate mail, and wield a shield and an axe each, the two Lizardmen are wearing some kind of Heavy Armour and are wielding Greatswords. Each of the Lizardmen are also holding the collars of a Guard Dog and seem ready to release them at a moments notice. Further back there is a female elf wearing Leather armour, wielding a Longbow with a full quiver of arrows on her back, Next to her is a female Centaur wearing Mail Armour with some Javelins strapped to her back. Finally, almost out of sight is a small Kobold in Light armour with a sling. The room itself is another long rectangle, although this one is thinner than room 4. There do not appear to be any other doors in this room, although a lone painting seems to stand out almost at the far end of the North Wall and two lighter shades of stone are almost opposite each other on the North and South Walls about a third of the way down. The rest of the room looks well used, a temporary smithy/kitchen seems to have been set up alongside some benches and desks with things going on on them and a small sleeping area. Noticing you are not Undead, the Warriors seem to relax slightly, and bid you welcome to, as they call it, "The Last Bastion."
Room 6: The room is relatively small, probably the smallest room you've been in so far, although the contents of the room may make it feel smaller than it actually is. In one of the corners there is a massive amount of weaponry, in another a massive collection of armours, a third has rings, belts and amulets galore, whilst the fourth corner holds a single chest. Directly opposite you is a map that looks different to the ones you have seen previously. The door that lead into this room has mysteriously disappeared, and in front of the now vacant doorway is a small rectangular welcome mat. This must be one of the treasure rooms scattered around the dungeon that you have heard about.
Rudig: () You puzzle over the existence of the newfound passageway and begin to work out how would be best to hold it in case things take a turn for the worse.
Gikur: (4) Amazed at how Keegra opened the door with a single punch, the disappearance of the door makes you worry about setting foot inside.
Urouk: () You stand guard, looking out of the known entrance to The Last Bastion.
Trijask: () You continue to guard the door to The Last Bastion and watch for enemies to kill.
Gantuxuz: (8) You move through the doorway, stepping over the welcome mat as if it wasn't there. Poking a couple of things and lifting weapons and armour from their positions you declare the room safe.
Guard Dogs: () you wait for Trijask to give you an order and attack.
Prilanos: (7 + 2Cir = 9) taking the initiative you move over to Xiv'riit and try to heal him. (6) Your healing energy flows through him and heal him for 9 Health. You make the motions again, (4) restoring a further 5 Health.
Blearm: () you giggle quietly, the normal people in The Last Bastion ignore you as they always do, you know you're not right in the head, if you were you wouldn't be where you are. Happy to be trading again you giggle as you watch both theElf and the Shardmind get acquainted with their new weapons
