I clarified some information with Tann.
when he posted:
With the Wall of Fire's sudden hot temperature blasting the room, the ice holding the coffin door in place instantly melted. With a loud crashing sound the door slammed back into place, steam and smoke rising from it.
His intention was for us to know (figure out) the door broke from the freezing and quick thaw of the hinges from the hot fire spell. I told him as I read it seemed normal for a stuck / frozen door to slam shut and didn't get a clue of it possibly having broken mechanics when it was a magic operated door. I may have got it if there had been some sound or something when Ulthok tried the gems again.
He's allowing a mulligan and we shall discover that the door needs to be pried open.
I will post that Peri notices the door ajar.
So start to thinking on how to pry open the door.
BTW, from Sirene's spell on the door we should have noticed that the "Evil feeling" in the room was gone. Tann told me that the Evil was in a trap that would have sprung had we tried to open the tombs any other way than using the gems. We avoided a really ugly battle that some most likely would not have survived.

Well, I had been wondering about not sensing evil with that spell. And no, I had not noticed that the door was broken.
Tann - I am curious - if the door is open a crack, do we still notice intense cold coming from the gap?
To the crew - I guess it seems that we are now going to have to open the door manually. It will presumably be harder to close this time. We may want to be careful to not drop and shatter it. Lothor's hill giant strength should make this doable, so it is probably time to muscle up unless someone else has ideas. And he does need help balancing it. It can either be leaned on the side or we can only open it part way. Maybe. I'll wait to hear a bit more before I post.
Well my minds eye saw the door as swinging up to open and slamming down to close.
So I'd say the door is lifted, the party scrambles in and then it is lowered back into place. But we may need to try first to see how Tann says it works. It could have no pivoting and needs to be muscled aside. We have to try something first to find out. Ulthok has his ogre strength, he just can't lift very high.
We need to have healing spells cast too, no one said they case any healing on anyone.
For no post this past Sunday. Been both angry and depressed since the Cowboys loss to Green Bay and been keeping to myself and have not been in a gaming frame of mind. However just like everything else disappointing through out my life I'll get over it and will post by Saturday.
Valene have not heard or seen a post from you since you retook over the character Valene. Do you still want to play her? Let me know so I can recruit or kill as needed.
Aletheia your last post was 10-19-2016 at 16:41:08 that's all the way back in October. I know you've had some rough times in real life during the course of these past months but I need to know are you still in my game? Same as I asked Valene above please let me know.
Yes, I'm still here, and wanting to play. I apologize for my lack of play as I've had some personal issues I've had to deal with, and am still dealing with a few, but I feel this will be therapeutic for me. I hope y'all can forgive me.
Tann - am I able to change a few of Aliya's spells still? If not it's cool, I can do it during next rest. I will post after I know.
