Onward?  I mean, you can always turn around and go home.  Kith had a good run, right?

No signs of trap doors, hidden doors, etc.  Course, the point of a hidden door IS to be hidden, after all.  


Anybody in the group good at finding these?

It is... deathly silent.

Just to point out the obvious - the corridor is far too narrow for someone to have drug both of them from the middle of the group down either direction of the hall without being detected doing so.  Nor would enough time have lapsed for them to get out of sight.

Topic: The Corruption Hidden Beneath the Surface...
Subject: horror takes form...


The the utter darkness, the attack of the giggling obcenities against both flanks threatens to instill unthinking teror into even the stoutest of hearts.  If not for years of training and experience, the warriors might not have been able to stand firm.

“If there is anything you might do to dispel this accursed darkness, little one, now is the time!” Ch'dau roars to Midge.  The little mage shakes his head, not than anyone can see that fact.  "I have no spells of light, no way to break the spells of others!" he nigh wails.  At the giggling of the third ghoul - and Davena's scream - the cid begin a chant of his own.

Aranwen slashes out, high, though she does not connect... the invisible ghoul steps inside of her guard and sinks fangs into her forearm.  The Bladesinger can feel the grip of the grave reach into her bones, but she is able to resist the cold evil. 

At the rear, the second creature leaps in, thinking to flank Ch'dau, only to run into Gib's shield.  The warrior priest holds firm, giving the Kazari the opening he needs to drive a falcatta deep into its rotting guts.

Midge may lack a way to counteract darkness, but Cedric knows that the Radiant Father has given him just such a blessing.  Gripping the shining disk of Solanis, the priest entreats the god of light and life to bestow light upon the party, and the deity immediately responds, melting the darkness away. 

In an instant, the crippling darkness is gone.  The corridor is hardly well lit; the divine influence of each priest has merely cancelled the other out.  But the greenish glow is visible once more, as is the warmer torchlight. 

One would think that, in such a desperate struggle for survival against the living dead, the ability to once again see would bring a measure of comfort those who oppose them.

In this case, it does no such thing.

Oh, the light does reveal the giggling creatures well enough, allowing Aranwen to take advantage and cleave the lead ghoul nearly in half.  But not everything revealed is so comforting...

"DAVENAAAAAAAA!!!!!" Garn screams in anguish.  A glance at the big warrior's position reveals that the blonde women is... gone.  There is no trace of her in the hall whatsoever.

Gib stabs the rear ghoul, and while it is so pinnned, Ch'dau finishes it off with a vicious strike. 

The incapacitated ghoul lying at Aranwen's feet somehow manages to choke out another giggle, its mouth wide in an expression of hilarity as it stares towards the middle of the group.

In the moment, it becoes obvious that Kithran is also missing.

I used an arcane tool called "Facebook Messenger", saw the green light by his name, and hit him up. 

He's still in Germany.  Says he may can post withint he next few hours/day, but I told him no big.  Enjoy the trip, no big decisions to be made right now, anyway.  I can always NPC.

Topic: The Corruption Hidden Beneath the Surface...
Subject: swallowed by the dark


As they enter the more narrow hallway, the party adjusts the marching order a bit, moving into a staggered single file line. 

The hall (tunnel?) takes a noticeable slope down. The air is cool and dry, but the scent of death lingers heavy here.  Bits of cloth, bone, gristle, flesh, skin all litter the hallway from time to time.  You do not pass any more of the sconces, but the greenish glow somehow remains at a fixed distance - enough to illuminate the hallway somewhat, not enough to drive the shadows away. 

Every footstep echoes on the stone floor, though no one or nothing appears to challenge your egress.  Knowing that this place is surely the source of the undead can only build dread as you advance.  Surely, at some point, they will block your progress?

Finally, you hear it.  An insane giggle echoing up the hallway from below.  You see a ghoul, seemingly unafraid, ambling towards you, all the while wearing a twisted grin on its rotting features.  As it closes the gap, you another more giggling - from behind.  You are pinned in. 

The party follows Aranwen's instructions; Kithran falls back to allow the Bladesinger to take her place, supported by Garn.  In the back, Ch'dau prepares to face the flanker, with Gib stepping up to support him in turn. 

It is a good plan.  The strong warriors are on the outside, facing outward and the danger.  Kith and the vulnerable spellcasters are on the inside, able to support as needed.  Tactically, it is as good of a strategy as the party could have concocted against the undead. 

Unfortunately, the party does not face the undead only. 

Moments before the two ghouls, moving in concert from each side, reach melee distance, a voice chants out a few short syllables... and unyelding, unnatural darkness falls upon the group.  Those with infravision are every bit as blind as are those without.  This is utter, complete, total darkness of the variety where one literally cannot see their hand inches in front of their own face.  Aranwen can still feel the heat of the crackling torch, but the flame casts no light whatsoever in the face of this sorcery. 

An intsant later, the ghouls are upon you, crashing into the outermost warriors, giggling with glee as they lay about in the darkness. 

And then... there is a grating sound, and suddely, a third giggling voice joins the sounds of battle - BUT IT IS IN THE MIDST OF THE GROUP.  Davena screams in terror and agony, but the scream cuts off abruptly as you fight for your very lives.

Just a heads up - I'm probably going to go ahead and post soon, myself.  A real update, not one of these little "one step here, one step there" jobs.
