"Gertrude, ready for a swim?" Kurma gets his rope and give an ends to Brunella "If you feel two pulls that means we need you to pull us up" He then turns Invisible and carefully enters the water, looking out for possible creatures lurking around.
When the key doesn't work, Gertrude feels defeated. Nothing in this tomb is making sense. Her strength feels useless with all these puzzles and locks and weird triangular head shapes of the skeletons. What were they even collecting them for?
Then she remembers her training. She knows how to fight, how to use her strength, but she also knows how to keep a team together. She looks around the room again. Maybe one of the other members could bring something? "Oniss, would you try magically knocking at this chest? Maybe that could work?"
Taking another look at the chest, Irommek re-reads the inscription:
"I devour all but the greatest thieves".
"My fingers are a little too rough for picking locks. They are better served gripping a hammer. However, if we still have Felix's lock-picking tools and someone wants to give it a try, I'll ask Valkauna if she can lend us some guidance."
Felix Windfall (Human-V Lv.7 Rogue) killed in ToA, Isabella (YuanTi Lv.7 Warlock) in ToA, Allen Bishop (Tiefling Lv.2 Cleric) in CoS, Erik Haus (Human-V Lv.3 Wizard) in Silver Blade, Ronnal Rockwell (Gray Dwarf Lv.4 Cleric)
Brunella picks up the items curiously. She pays special attention to the tankard. As a dwarf, she is naturally drawn to anything that can be used to consume ale. Even though she comes from a stone age primitive tribe, she feels the pull of alcohol.
