Cups is disappointed to find that the lamp is not a cup.

He carries his treasures over to a safe corner and looks at them closely.

He expends 1 mp to discover that the lamp and gauntlet are magical.

(Magical discoveries - you can expend 1 mp to sense if something is magical)

Forgetful tries to put on the metal shirt, and tries to find a position for that handy dagger.
'I have to remember to get rid of this dagger outside the dungeon. Anyone would kill to get it off my hands...' are his thoughts.
He also has no idea what to do with fluffy handcuffs in here, but remembers some wonderful private hours with Pleasurabe Moments.....

"Yes,... eh... We could try to open that door. But trying to dig it free to do so safely? At least we have some water ready, if you're thirsty?" and offering Agrees the urn with water (assuming that the heavier urn is the one with water).

He also starts digging carefully, but the amount of gold which would have to be shifted aside seems enormous....

Forgetful succeeds in putting on the metal shirt. It doesn't kill him instantly.. Yay... But he isn't sure what it does if anything other than protecting him more. He doesn't have a great way to carry the dagger because he's already carrying the urns, one of which he offers to agrees should he want a drink.

He puts them down in order to start digging out there door, but his efforts do little in the way of opening up a path.

Fforgetful continues for an hour or so, in the hope to find an handle or similar.
If not, he stops and takes a drink.

Forgetful keeps digging, but the cascades of coins falling back into place make it impossible, he does discover that based on the hinges, this door opens out instead of in, meaning he would need to clear all the way down to the floor.

He also has a drink, but he's worn himself out.

"Dangit. I might want to refresh my water reserve. With your walking speed, do you think you might have a chance of walking along the border of this treasure room? We can meet in the fountain room again, to discuss the next steps with the others..."
Forgetful remains seated while recovering, and drinking water.

"Yeah, I can move fast now, so I will move along the wall a ways and see if it comes to an end. I'll be back shortly, I hope." "And you are right. Digging for this door seems hopeless unless we find some weird magic item to help us with that."

Agrees agrees to do as asked and staying near the wall begins walking away. He stops periodically to see if he notices anything different from the many locations he stops at.

(where in the room: I'm going to assume in the opposite corner of the last fountain that Forgetful was testing to throw coins in, as she didn't want to be splashed with whatever would come out.
Also, her name is Bombards-People-With-Questions not just Bombards-With-Questions like you wrote in the first post, and if you are going to abbreviate her name, I would very much prefer if you called her Questions, please. :D )

"Handcuffs? Could you please try and put them on the Muncher's hands?" Questions asks, in case she noticed the discovery in the other room. Else she follows them for now, offering to have muncher eat away at the gold, so it's not in the way anymore and perhaps it's a faster mehtod than just digging through.
The winds of change are blowing, and if I may say so myself: it's about bloody time!

"That might work, we'll test Munchers abilities... Can you lay down to let it eat?" Forgetful asks.
He also pulls out the handcuffs, but is too afraid of Muncher's obviously strong arms to get close enough to put them on....

While forgetful takes a breather, agrees does some exploring. Keeping the wall to his left, he keeps walking, stopping now and then. He's not sure the distance he's walked when he does eventually come to a corner, the place is just as huge as it was before.

(I'll Kindly call you questions as long as you promise not to meta like that)

Questions moves to the pile of gold that is the doorway but finds that moving up the hill while having a monster stuffing it's face on your back is next to impossible. Munchers gorges himself on the gold and jewels and magical items that have washed into the room causing fresh cascades of treasure to fall down into the room, sweeping questions off her feet.

After about a dozen huge mouthfuls, munchers falls asleep.. Snoring loudly.

(You do not know about any handcuffs, and forgetful made it sound like he wasn't going to take them meaning that at this point they are lost to the abyss of treasure. Please don't assume that others are announcing their discoveries, from another room, out loud, unless they are. Forgetful is still hanging out by the door leading who knows where, a good walk away from the fountain room door. Thank you for understanding.)

(well, in many games goblins have some sort of "telepathic everyone knows what everyone else is doing/seeing skill". I was kind of assuming that this might be the case here, too. My bad and I apologize.)

Questions gets up, if she can, if not she yells for "Help, please!"
Once she is vertical again, she looks around for something to restrain the muncher with, or anything else useful (with the new gold etc. being swept into the room, might have come new items of interest).

[ooc]Sorry, also my fault[/ooc]

IF Forgetful Memory is close enough to hear the cry for help, he gets up and hastens back to the source of the cry for help (the fountain room)

Otherwise:
- he gets up and makes his way back to the fountain room, expecting the fast-walking Goblin to return soon to the fountain room.
- IF he finds something else along the way, he takes a look, especially for backpack like items.

[ooc]Someone needs to throw the dice for me, to check if I hear the cry or help over the lure of gold[/ooc]

Now that Agrees has found the corner of the room and he is very much by himself, he will sit down for a bit and think.
He knows this place is very magical and weird, and he is tired of his nagging injury, so he will stop and concentrate on himself for a bit and try to make himself feel better. (seeing if he can use MP to heal himself)

As questions struggles to climb to her feet, she finds that suddenly she can do so quite easily. She hears loud Snoring coming from behind her. As she pushes herself to her feet, for some reason she feels stronger. She looks around at the pile of treasure door something interest and finds (anything particularly interesting that you're looking for). Otherwise she finds: a cowboy hat, spiked boots and a riding crop.

(Given gathers if/then clause there was no cry)

Forgetful, having taken a small break stands up and heads back towards the fountain room. Along the way, he keeps his eyes on anything that he could use to hold things and finds a few interesting things.
He finds: a leather manpurse stuffed with letters, a pair of winged boots, a ring that's studded with a tiny house instead of a jewel.

As agrees reaches the corner and is by himself, to takes a moment to think. He spots a high wingbacked throne and sits down on it to rest his legs. He then closes his eyes and focuses his magical energy on himself. After a time of focus he feels healthier.

(Magic : 1MP = 2HP)
Rules to clarify, goblin esp doesn't work here.
An item found but not collected is no longer able to be found again in the same form. (Keeps me from having to remember the magical affects of so many items)

Forgetful Memory picks up the ring and tries to fit it on his finger.
He then picks up the man-purse, and attaches it too (don't know whether it's the kind with belt/attached to belt/slung on wrist).
And shoes with wings? He remembers the story of the greek god's messenger, and tries them on.
He also continues his path back to the fountainroom.

Questions picks up the straightjacket and the gag (that's the "anything particularly interesting that you're looking for") and puts both onto the Muncher while it's sleeping.
She also picks up the hat, the crop and the boots and puts on the hat. (Are the spikes on the outside or the inside of the boots?)
Then she follows where the other goblins have gone.

(sorry, you say what you're looking for, and I roll up some options for you which might be normal, cursed or magical.
In this case, you didn't find a straight jacket and a gag.)

Cups focuses on the gauntlet, to see if he can figure out anything else about it's function.

((Using MP if needed. What is the natural recovery rate on HP, MP?))

Forgetful picks up the ring and puts it on his finger.
As he looks back down to grab something else he finds that he's no longer in the treasure room, but instead finds himself in a magnificent foyer that is warmly lit. From where he's at, he can see a roaring fire in a far wall and can smell meat that has been grilled to perfection wafting in from another room.

A ethereal goblin wearing a suit appears in front of you and says "welcome home sir, this house has been awaiting a new master for a long time."

Questions picks up the few items she found. As she puts on the cowboy hat, a majestic and ethereal horse appears in front of her and follows her up into the treasure room.

(The spikes are on the bottom of the boots, also, see my post just above explaining finding things in better detail)

Cups focuses his senses on the Gauntlet and finds that he understands how it operates using his innate magic.

Handy gauntlet - once worn, this gauntlet magically removes the wearers hand at the wrist for the duration of being worn. It also fills the back of the hand with a third eye that matches the eyes of the wearer. The user can send his hand away from his wrist at will to anyplace, though becoming lost can happen.

(Magic: identify an item using 1mp)
(Mp restore, everyone must rest at the same time to restore mp and a little bit of hp. You'll wake up thirsty and hungry, there's a limited amount of time that you can continue being hungry and thirsty)

Agrees starts quick magic walking back towards the door to the fountain room. During his walking he will watch for items that may possibly have something to do with food.

"Hello. So, this is a magic home, huh?
Sorry, but I need to go and help some friends.
I'll be back later again.
"
Forgetful tries to take off the ring again.
Once back, he tries to refind the manpurse and the shoes with wings, or other backpack-like things.
(he keeps he ring, and his two urns, one filled wih a bit of fresh waterfrom the clay fountain)
[ooc]Maybe we should collect these rules also in the first post, easier to refind them...[/ooc]

Agrees moves quickly back towards the fountain room, stopping now and then to look around for any items that might pertain to food or eating but he doesn't find anything.
After a few moments he finds himself outside the fountain room where forgetful and question are as well. He sees the ethereal horse following questions.

Forgetful thanks the well dressed goblin and then removes the ring, which comes off easily and he finds himself back in the treasure room. When he gets back, he's a bit disoriented and forgets where he had seen the other items. He spots something interesting on the ground though. The edge of a carpet and one golden tassel fixed to it's corner.

(Once I'm on my PC again I will collect rules back into the first page. Good suggestion krulle)

Forgetful Memory grabs the carpet, and wonders if the other corners also have golden tassels....
He then puts his stuff on the carpet, and lifts the four corners to make it into a bundle.

He then turns to the others: "I think I found a hideaway, and I've been offered a dinner there.". He then looks over to the horse: "An ethereal servant seems to be waiting for a new master... If anyone's hungry, he can lend my ring and go there. I do not know you if you fully go there, or whether it's just a mind trick, though. But the dinner smelled good..."

He then turns to Agrees with Everyone: "Have You found anything else in that loot room?"

[ooc]Ethereal Horse? Did I miss anything? Failed my spot check.... ;)

Questions gently speaks to the horse. "My, aren't you a pretty one? Do you have a name?"
To Forgetful (and the others, if any are within hearing range), she recounts her discoveries. "I found some spiky boots, if anyone wants them. The cowboy hat seems to summon this horse here, and I have no clue what the crop does. I'm happy to give the boots to someone else, if they want them, but I'm gonna hang onto the crop. I really could use something to help me restrain the cursed cloak that has taken life and form on my back, preferably before it wakes up again. Any help would be appreciated."

Questions keeps on looking for something to restrain the "muncher" with, and/or a potion or scroll of "break curse", "dispel" and other magical solutions to her problem.
The winds of change are blowing, and if I may say so myself: it's about bloody time!

Forgetful Memory starts looking if he can see a rope, or handcuffs or similar again, besides his search for a backpack or similar.
