Halben pulls back to curtain to reveal a high narrow dark hall that looks as if it might have been part of a chapel or shrine at one time. Angelic figures are sculpted along the room's upper reaches, looking down on the floor below. Next to Halben at J,14 is a cracked but ornately carved stone brazier. A new door is visible at L,16.
"Be careful, these could be traps." Halben would like to investigate the angels to see if they are traps. If he determines that they are not, he will try to advance across the room to open the door at L,16.
Halben investigates the angels and the other chapel's decor. They do not appear to but trapped but Halben can discern that the deities once revered here were Oghma(god of knowledge), Mystra(goddess of magic), Lathander(god of dawn), and Tymora(goddess of luck). This is an obvious sign that the builders of the castle were human. Halben progresses towards the door and Fawn enters.
Halben reaches for the door but hears a flop behind him as a large worm like creature comes out of the rocky pile. It blends in almost effortlessly with the rock. It rears up and it's barb tentacles unfurl to reveal a hungry snapping beak and it let's out a hiss!
When this hiss belts out two goblins emerge with daggers down from behind the altar in the prior room. They both wear filthy robes over their armor.
Cypress bites once more and the goblin's robes are no match for his maw. He squeezes and with every breath a little more life leaves the goblin until it sleeps forever more.
Seeing Halben down on the ground Fawn dives into action. The worm is latched onto Halben and does not see the swords coming. Fawn cuts in and dissects it down the middle like she's doing an experiment. The worm let's out a hiss and both halves wiggle for a few moments before stopping.
Halben is bleeding out on the ground and will need to make another death save if he is not healed.
Well done! Combat is now over! Please award yourselves 485 exp each! You may now do as you wish.
Halben lets out a gasp and sits up breathing. He turns to Cypress and says "Thank you my friend. The mistress of death almost had me on that one." Halben gets up and stumbles around the room a bit. "Give me a second. I need to catch my bearings." Halben looks to see that the goblins and the worm are dead. "Great job you guys. I wonder if our dwarven friend is around here somewhere. I hope we don't have to fight any more of those."
Halben will drink his greater potion of healing and heal for 9
He is now back to 18 HP and is ready to try and open the door he is currently at.
