We searched the bodies and the rest of the room. People searched in rooms, on wall and looked through rubble. A noise emits from the room behind the altar. Someone has found a door, so we proceed through it. We didn’t get far before Puppy stop short of a crystal in the wall. I walked by him and up to it after he threw his axe at it. It feels psionic but not knowing the power inside, I continued to smash it. I got one hit in when Kacee approached but before anything else was done, another axe hit the crystal barely missing our heads.
With everyone back to there normal selves, the next obstacle we came to was a landing with a fog filled stairway on the opposite side. Puppy threw a bone he have been carrying. It just disappeared into the fog. Me and Sparks were called forward to blow the fog away, only to find out that it is coming from glyphs around the hallway. Looking around we found four holes in the wall. For some reason Kacee decided earlier to cut parts off of the fallen, luckily. The tentacles fit in the hole perfectly and the mist stopped.
We carried onward, up the stairs. We have been in here awhile and with no reference of time, we can not tell how long. We come upon a room with beds, yes beds, rest finally. I don’t care if it is trapped, I need to lay down. Before I know it I am alone in the room, damn that rest didn’t last long.
The hall opens up to a room with many large crystals in it. Six are high in the air and one VERY large one in the middle. Looking around, me and Astrid realize that these too are psionic in nature. There are odd, randomly connected circle on the floor. Astrid and I tried touching the center crystal and focusing. AHHH!, it felt like my thoughts we shot back into my head. I looked around and saw that Halog was near a control panel. From what I am able to gather, they have to do with other planes of existence. Just then Halog starts pulling levers and I start putting them back. I yell at both him and Kacee that we need to figure out what they do first but caution is not their strong suit.
With all levers pulled the roof parts and we can see that the night is no more but the fresh air is welcomed. Now with the center active, I decide to touch the crystal. I had to use all my might to resists the separation of my mind from my body.
Nine drawings on the surrounding wall apparently started to glow when all the levers were pulled. Seeing Astrid touch a couple and no harm coming to her, I did the same. The first one I touch, something gets my attention as I get somethings attention in return. As I am rudely and painfully detached from the drawing by Astrid, she childishly yells at me “NO touchy”. We make it all the was around the room with no further knowledge of what this thing is for. We have figured out it is telepathic in its use.
Looking at the pattern on the floor, I went to the panel and pulled two specific levers. Approaching the crystal, I touched it……..
