  Not one to be out left behind, Adis quickly picked up his robes and prepared to jump.
  "Wheee" he cried out in a low monotone voice. Almost mocking his own feeble attempt at jumping.

Graven shook his head, backed a bit then ran and jumped through the gap, landing with a solid *thump* on the other side.

Norian is next. He gets a running start and leaps across the pit, managing to land with some amount of grace. "Well, that wasn't too bad." He says, dusting himself off.

Rah awakes from his momentary nap with an abrupt yelp.
"Ooh sorry! Rah get sleepy sometimes!"
Rah looks at the pit. Then casually leaps over it.

With all five of you on one side of the pit, Adis moves his light a bit further up the corridor. Realizing that it won't reach far enough, he lights a makeshift torch with one of his sticks. You're greeted to a doorway not far to your left. It looks as ordinary in a crypt as any of the rest of the doors. Further down the hallway another section of the flooring has collapsed. Ropes are in place over this one as well. The hallway turns sharply to the right at the end of your light.

There is still a dull silence besides the crackling of the torch. The light flashing off the flagstones is somewhat reassuring in these musty catacombs.

"Hah. That was fun. Well now. Door or should we attempt to cross another pit? I vote door, just to see what's inside."

'I knew rocks more decisive than you are, people' uttered Karan suddenly, rising from the ground. She approached the door to the crypt, and forced them open.

The room that Karan views is providing light of it's own, though it takes her a moment to figure out what it's coming from. A bright yet faint shimmer in the air at first, upon taking a step into the room a picture resolves itself in the air in front of you. Had you entered from another direction you might have thought it simply a mural on the wall, but this picture is quite clearing standing about five feet from the wall, and generating light. It seems invisible from the rear, as well.

A quick glance at the picture it displays reveals a sinister looking castle in the middle of a swamp. The light from this glowing picture doesn't quite reach the end of the passage to the south.

'Safe here!' shouted Karan to her team, before walking further west, through the corridor.

Karan's westward trek continues past the floating picture, and to the door. Opening it, she is confronted by a black hallway. She can barely make out that it turns sharply right after a few feet.

With a slight sigh, Karan reached to one of the pouches on her belt, pulling a sunrod out and lighting it up.

'I am going in!' she shouted to her apathetic team, and strode further down the hallway.

"Good for you." Norian was normally nice, but Karan was starting to get on his nerves a bit. He wondered why. It must have been the thing about rocks. The thing was, you never knew what could be thrown at you, so you must be careful.

Of course, with his luck, If he took initiative like Karan did, he would end up face to face with a dragon, and if he survived, he would get a lecture from his party members about rushing headlong into the unknown. Norian just walks silently to where Karan is and falls in behind her. He took solace in the fact that when she, or any one else got severely wounded, he was the go-to guy for combat healing.

He made a mental note to have a talk with her, and try and get her to understand he's trying to be fair, and also get her to calm down.

In one fashion or another your group heads after Karan. One or two might want to stop her, the rest just don't want to be seperated in a crypt. Either way, you're all within a few feet of each other as Karan turns the corner to find...yet another corner. Thankfully this one leads into a room.

Your first impressions of this room are a bit marred by the skeletons in the alcoves lining the walls of the room. There's a faint smell of mold in the air, and it's really quite unpleasant, even for a crypt. As you're about to take a closer look around, the door leading to the north opens suddenly!

A few seconds pass, and nothing happens. Then - just as you're about to sheathe your rapidly drawn weapons - the floor in front of the door glows red, and suddenly the stones themselves shoot upwards in a blaze of light! This illusion is quickly shattered when you realize you're facing two magma claws that are very unhappy to be here, and even less happy to see you.

Encounter: Von Urstadt Crypt

One of the Magma Claws makes a sound not unlike rocks being split in two, and hurls itself towards the nearest warm body - Karan - slashing a deep gash into her flesh. The other spits a large chunk of molten lava which lands about her body, holding her fast.

- "Hostiles spotted. Initiating defensive actions." - Graven reacted first and immediatly circled and attacked the creature that hurt Karan.
