We’ve now been in this prison for two whole days. Things could be worse though, really. Brin Stormwind managed to get some of our belongings to us, which we found in our rooms last night. Valnya somehow managed to relocate my old cell mate and is now bunking with me.
At least now I have my amulet so I’ve got goodberries to eat, instead of the mush they provide in the cafeteria. I think everyone is rather greatful of it, as they all got one at breakfast.
Gilead finally got hold of his egg shells during breakfast this morning, so we’re about set and ready to break into isolation. Here’s hoping all goes smoothly. We plan to set things in motion after lunch. Gilead is examining the map that Brin gave us to determine the safest place to cast his telepathic bond spell, unnoticed. Meanwhile, Faolán has made off, back to his cell mate to acquire more information.
We all met back up in the lunch room before heading out to one of the recreational areas. I tried to keep an eye out for guards while Gilead stealthily cast his telepathic bond spell. Then, Morris headed off down in the direction of the isolation building to see how many guards we would have to deal with. Meanwhile, Faolán snuck off somewhere to summon some pixies to assist us.
Right when we were about to meet up for the big break it, Morris was co fronted by some old “friends”. There were seven or so men, that he had put in here. He got in a fight with them, and attempted to cast something on one of them. The guards noticed and descended upon him, restraining him and taking him off to isolation. Lucky for us, really. He was able to telepathically tell us where to go inside.
After about fifteen minutes the guards that brought him, came back out. It was time to act. Faolán commanded his pixies to cast polymorph on the four guards that were outside isolation. It took five castings of it but they were all turned into rats and we ran into the building. Immediately inside was another guard, who Faolán put to sleep, with the help of his pixies. I took his club and then we carried on into the next room. There were hallways to the left and right and a door, directly ahead. All down the halls there were slots in the walls.
We found Morris in the room on the other side of the wall where the first slot was. One of the pixies polymorphed him into a spider and he climbed out of the cell. The pixie the decided it would be fun to drop the spell by stabbing Morris with its tooth pick sword (these pixies seem unusually unpleasant this time). We then looked through all the other slots but couldn’t find Valnya’s friend, Stedd.
We continued onward, through the door which lead to a room with two hallways again, both of which had two guards stationed at them. Lucky for us, they weren’t paying much attention and we managed to sneak across the room, to a spiral stair case descending down. Valnya picked the lock and we all snuck through before she locked it again, behind us.
At the bottom of the stairs was a room with an electrified metal pillar in the middle and a few rods resting on the ground near the doorway. We were able to discern that we had to use the rods to keep the lighting coming off of the pillar from striking us. We made it across and continued down a winding hallway. We found Stedd’s belonging in a storage area and various dead bodies (which thanks to Morris we were able to determine were zombies that would attack if messed with) in other rooms. After checking what felt like a dozen rooms we finally found the room Stedd was in. I rushed in and healed him and we gave him his things.
I do hope that now Valnya will hold up her end of the bargain and get us out of here.
