Still waiting on theis and narshe :)

Gathers - that yellow thing is on the wall, and there's room to go past it.

Sorry, just got home from my vacation :P

Tinkers grins. "Excellent, you pass the test that we had to administer for insurance purposes, and qualify for a discount based on that you're so canny that you're less likely to need rescue! We'll just need you to state your names and current mission for the record, if you want the discount."

"Weelllll...."
"Yeah... This seems weird..."

TAP tries to move the yellow thing. It vanishes into the wall as he pokes it and they hear a low rumbling sound from the right that sounds like stone grinding on stone.

At the sounds from the right, the two thieves change their tunes somewhat.

"You know what, sign me up!"
"Yeah... Me too!"
"I'm Gord and this is Marik. We're from the Catstep Guild."
"Yup. And our mission is to steal the Serpent Ring from Marric's vaults, bring it to our guild, and then return it to prove our awesomeness."
"It's... not going particularly well."
"Hey, the insurance starts immediately, right?"

Walks watches what TAP does and then scoots past, hopping over the red thing and climbing up the ladder to investigate the red lines at the top. They appear to just be beams of light, but they are emitting a high-pitched whine and are giving out a surprising amount of heat. Weird. Behind it is a heavy metal grate. On the left, she sees nine small holes in the wall, from which a grey slimy ooze is oozing, but she can't tell what it is without investigating it more closely.

"It certainly does as soon as payment have been recieved! And as mentioned, you'll be getting a discount of 40%, so the supreme premium pack will cost 70 gold for each insurance and I will send out the message right away. I hope you'll have a pleasant adventure here, as pleasant as they can be."

Steals will take the money if they give it to him and then climb down the pipe and "delivering" the money

"Adventure with impugnity, mates!" Tinkers exclaims. "You are now the safest adventurers that ever delved a dungeon. Now if you'll excuse me, I have other insurance salesman business to conduct. You might see more of us going around - it's all part of the job, evaluating the safety of various dungeons so that we can price in the risk and offer the best possible rates to you, our discerning customers."


She'll go up the ladder one level, and to the ledge on the left, and push that button on the floor to see what happens.

"70 GP each! We don't have that! Look, we only have ... 40 GP in total. But! We have information about how to get into the vaults here! I'm sure you would be able to find the rest of the money in there!"
"Assuming you don't mind a little bit of... um... theft."
"Well of course they don't! They're in INSURANCE. So, do we have a deal?"
"That's true. Also, it might speed up your inspection work!"

"Adventure with impugnity, mates! You are now the safest adventurers that ever delved a dungeon. Now if you'll excuse me, I have other insurance salesman business to conduct. You might see more of us going around - it's all part of the job, evaluating the safety of various dungeons so that we can price in the risk and offer the best possible rates to you, our discerning customers."

Tinkers immediately demonstrates her commitment to testing dangerous things by pressing the large red button on the floor. She hears a quiet *shwink" sound from somewhere above her, followed by a very unpleasant burning sensation. It seems that she has triggered a flame trap. She loses 3HP and now has 1 left. Ouch.

TAP tries to move the now-grey circle, but only succeeds in making the groany-rumbly noise happen again from somewhere on the right.

It doesn't turn - If you spend your whole turn trying something simple that doesn't work, you can assume you've tried all your obvious options (e.g. you try to open a door by pushing AND pulling it).

Tinkers should have been more careful! Oh well!

Very carefully, she will continue left and see if it takes her to where the skeleton was.

Steals sighs once as he look at the two guys in front of him

"Very well, so once you've paid and told me about the vault, I'll send the message around and have your insurance fixed right away."

He's sad to see that the buttons does not deactivate the lasers

"Very well, so once you've paid and told me about the vault, I'll send the message around and have your insurance fixed right away."
"Ok, great!"
"Here's your money..."
"And here's what we know... You ready?"
"Ok, so this whole place is built underneath Marric's private study."
"And he uses it to keep his most unique treasures hidden and safe."
"But there are traps. We know that there's some pretty obvious ones."
"Don't touch the red buttons"
"And some less obvious ones. Apparently there are two golems down here. One's made from clay, and one's made of stone."
"The stone watches everything that goes on in here and you don't want it to catch you doing anything... against Mr. Merric's interests."
"Finally, there's apparently an energy field barring the entrance to the vault. You can turn it off apparently, but we weren't told how..."
"Ok. That's everything! Insure us!"

Steals takes the 40GP from the thieves and ponders what to do with them next.

TAP hops up the ladder, and leaps over the grille in the wall, merrily landing on what appears to be some kind of greased surface. She goes careening down the platform and crashes into the pile of clay balls which go flying. She loses 1HP.

Image

Tinkers dusts herself off and cautiously heads left to where the skeleton is. She notices a small wooden chest under the skeleton's legs.

"A pleasure doing business with you."

Steals moves over to the side and talks into his flame shaped gem a bit discretely away from the two thieves. He talks just loud enough that they can hear what he says.

"Two ninja thief looking guys, named Gord and Marik from the catstep guild just paid for their premium insurance in Marrics deadly basement dungeon, make sure that everything is in order."

Steals then equips his armor and shield before he pushes the orange button above the glowing green one. Wonder why it's so close to being symmetrical except for the lines and big green button.

Treasures sets the skeleton back up in a dignified posture and sets the skull back on the neck, arranging the arms to cradle and support its forehead so it won't roll off again. Then, she says a quick prayer to mags for the creature's soul, and pockets the chest for opening later, in case it's trapped or something.

Turn 30

Image

TAP gets back up and throws a clay ball at the red light. It flies about halfway there before turning in midair and shooting back towards him! He manages to duck and turns just in time to see it meld into the rest of the clay, which is starting to look suspiciously animated for a pile of mud. Uh oh.

"A pleasure doing business with you."
"Two ninja thief looking guys, named Gord and Marik from the catstep guild just paid for their premium insurance in Marrics deadly basement dungeon, make sure that everything is in order."

Steals sets up the "insurance policy" much to the thieves' relief, equips his defences, then pushes the glowing orange button. A white glowing ring appears beneath the button.

Image

Tinkers puts the skeleton back to rights and pays her regards before pocketing the little box.

Tap runs down the ladder and jumps over the mine and jumps to the other side, avoiding the other mine

Turn 31

Image

TAP manages to carefully keep her footing in the grease, and makes it across to the ladder then bounces across the first red button. Her feet are greasy and she nearly slides right into the second one, but she gets lucky and manages to stop just in time.

Steals presses the button again, but nothing happens.

No-one else does anything.

Steals presses the green button hoping that the clay golem thing above will drop dead again.

If that doesn't happens then he pushes the orange button on the opposite site of the board
