It Lies Underground (Closed)

Recommended Posts

The mist that Delmar was on evaporates.

Some of it is still there, and it happens to be right below where Webber was falling.

Delmar attempts to open the intact thulecite chest to see if there are any supplies remaining.

Despite the fact the mist is no longer producing light, fireflies are all over the room. It is actually kinda pretty.

The fireflies mainly fly around Webber, but a few fly around Delmar instead. They seem attracted to something.

The thulecite chest doesn't flip open, the container locked.

 

There was some indication to what opens it, though; the front, or what appears to be the front, of the chest has a circular depression, innate carvings in the depression.

As the fireflies fly around Webber, they emit a even brighter light, which slightly heals Webber. Webber, have you ever seen a chest like this?

Delmar examines the carvings.

The carvings depicted a worm-like creature linking itself around the tail around the circle, a small circle protruding from the creature's head. The center shown a fragment of thulecite risen high above the heads of an organization. The four cardinal edges have strange symbols, unintelligible and untranscribable.

 

What was odd, however, was that details that should be thrown into relief are instead depressions, hills that should be poking out dips in the material.

Serenei was very confused at this point, having gone with the group into the cave. He snatched a firefly with his hands and stuck it in his satchel. Hopefully, after this, the insect would still be intact for study.

(I dunno what to do...on a side note, I was typing this in the dark, and just murdered a fly buzzing around the luminous screen with a book. So PRO!!)

The rest of the fireflies fly away very fast in fear. Delmar tries to help, trying everything he can with the carvings while Webber also tries to open it.

The chest still didn't open, a mechanism still locking the chest.

 

However, the carvings in the circular depression rotated slightly, but didn't rotate in a full circle.

 

(Try looking around.)

The only thing that could be found around the chests were bits of thulecite, scattered everywhere. Not surprising, since a few of the chests were shattered into oblivion.

 

A fair distance away, though, were larger pieces of the orange material, which was unusual; the chests seem to have crumbled with age, and the broken pieces of thulecite wouldn't have traveled that far from the chests.

Delmar moves over to where the larger pieces of Thulecite were. Hmm. That's strange. Something must be down here and it moved these. Hopefully its friendly.

The pieces varied in their sizes; some were the size of a Deerclops' eye, others were the size of a palm, and others still were eyesized.

 

Interestingly, they all seem to have carvings on them that, miraculously, haven't eroded from the rock with age or magical damage.

The pieces seperately had no meaning behind them, as unintelligible as the cracks in the stone floor.

As the pile of ancient rubble grew, so did similarities; the pieces seemingly had no resemblance, but it was apparent that there were more circular shapes than the chunky squares, and some of the pieces had rough edges that linked with each other.
