Evander Smith-Talking with Dwarves Part the First

It took two days of resting for the adventurers to heal up. With the help of Desna and nature they were able to get back on their feet and begin exploring. “How about we look for a door way that isn’t trapped,” suggested Rothus.

“Sure, we don’t want a repeat of what happened, anyway,” agreed Evander. “Let’s start with the first door on the left and work our way down,” he suggested.

“Okay,” said Rothus. He carefully approached the doorway, searching for a trap. Finding none, he cautiously enter the hallway. After about fifteen feet he heard a familiar click and quickly dodged to the side as blades began to swing back and forth from the walls. Two swinging blades separated Rothus from the rest of the adventurers.

“Need some help?” asked Evander.

“I meant to do that,” said Rothus.

“Okay, so how are you going to get out?” Evander asked.

“Carefully,” said Rothus.

“I have an idea,” said Evander getting out his grappling hook. He aimed for the first blade as he threw it. Missing the pole that suspended the blade, the grappling hook landed at the feet of Rothus.

“Now I have an idea,” said Rothus picking up the grappling hook. With deft hands he wraps the grappling hook around the blade securing the rope. Evander and the others on the other side of the blades pull as one, stopping the blade. Rothus takes the opportunity to quickly slip past just as his friends lose there grip and the blade once again resumes it’s swinging motion.

The swinging of the blade makes it difficult for Evander to recover the rope, however, he manages and once again stops the blade. This time, the rope blocks the second blade from completing its swing allowing Rothus to slip by just as it reverses direction. Evander manages to give the rope enough slack that the grappling hook comes free and he retrieves his rope.

“I’m done with doorways. Lets see where this hallway leads,” said Rothus. No one having any better ideas, they all follow Rothus down the hallway. It dead ends into a wall. Rothus carefully searches the wall for something.

“Sorry guys nothing here,” said Rothus.
