The room should be nice and toasty from the fireball Emril cast.

It was a Flaming Sphere. Long expelled.
However the bed might warm you, it's still on fire.

I look under it. Being careful. And warming my hands as I go

It's just a crude smoldering mattress. There is nothing under it, but there is some parchment between the mattress and the west wall.

The books are badly burned. A quick perusal reveals poetry about the gods set to music.

ooc: knowing AS&SH's pantheon, I'm guessing it's a copy of the King in Yellow.  

Emral puts out the fires as well as he can, then keeps looking.

Is it just a pile by the door, or across the other wall?

Anything found by Malak under the bed?

I examine the parchment between the mattress and the west wall.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Actually Emral is just going to climb up the rope with the bodies.

What should I roll?

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

The parchment is a rolled up scroll. There are 2 distinct writings on it. One looks original and one is writing between the lines and in the margins of the first.

There is more ripped up parchment in the space.

The books are all the same. There are many piles along the south and east walls.
Anything found by Malak under the bed?

Emral abandons his fascination with the burned books and attempts to hoist himself up over the body hanging at 6ft.
The reach is difficult overhead. Plus your pack, weapons and armor weight.

roll d12 a few times.

I try to decipher the scroll.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Malak isn;t well versed in magical writings but the script looks clerical, the handwritten magical symbols in the margins look written in blood and your heart muscle constricts just gazing upon it.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

What about the other scraps you mentioned? I did through them and check for any importance. If not, I will get bored with them and put them in my pack for later observation.

Those scraps look like more of the same. These parchments have been torn to bits.

Ok
I will save as much as I can.
And then cover the Warlock as he climbs.
Bow and arrow out.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Emral manages to hoist himself up above the first dead body, but his muscles tremble under his own weight as he struggles to gain more altitude. Slowly, he slides back down the gains he's made, landing on his butt on top of the dead body, like a swing seat.

Ooc: Like... a wrecking ball?

Emral is clearly exhausted from the disease, as he has normally an athletic physique. He pauses for a moment, then reaches up to search the second body. He is thinking about pulling off the backpack and checking belt pouches, fingers for rings, etc.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Now that he's assessing himself... Emral definitely feels flushed, his head pulses and his vision spins.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Emral will push himself to get the next body's backpack off, then he'll slip down carefully and have a rest.

"We need a minute, that's for sure. Then you try. So far no animated bodies. Plus the ones we've met haven't been subtle. These guys were here after the fire, probably treasure hunters who got killed by that glyph spell's storm."
