Three Keys to Freedom
Private RPG (Sorry!)
#1
Continuing this RPG from the old board: 
http://s1.zetaboards.com/The_Coffee_Hous...8074295/1/

Here's the synopsis: 

Quote:A party of archaeologists camps out for the night on the edge of a forest, about a quarter of a mile away from the temple which they intend to explore the following morning. However, during the dead of night, an earthquake tears open the ground underneath them, sending them tumbling into the abyss below. 

By the time the survivors have regained their bearings, and become aware of what has happened to them, the ground has sealed up again: they are trapped. Food, drink and other essentials are not an urgent concern: luckily, most of the party's supplies fell into the cavern with them. Instead, their goal is simply to find their way back to the surface. 

On one side of the chamber is a towering, marble door: a small peep-hole in this door shows that it leads the archaeologists directly to freedom. However, it is jammed shut, and far too large for the archaeologists to open by force with the tools they have available. To the left of this door is a set of three keyholes: if the archaeologists are able to locate the correct keys, then they will be able to slide the doors open, and escape from the tomb which has been made for them. 

On the other side are the entrances to three narrower tunnels, all of which lead deeper underground, to a series of smaller chambers. Each chamber contains a treasure chest, guarded by a monster of some description. A few of these chests contain nothing of value; a few contain extra supplies; and a few contain keys (which may or may not be the ones required to open the marble doors). Most, however, contain ancient Mayardian Gems, encased in obsidian containers which can be clipped onto an archaeologist's belt. When an archaeologist does this, the gemstones confer their powers onto the wearer: for each gemstone, these will consist of a strength and a weakness. This means that no gemstone is ever a straight upgrade or a straight downgrade: instead, specific crystals will prove to be useful against specific enemies. 

Here's the plan, showing what caves have been explored so far:

And below is a list of all of the gemstones which have been discovered so far, together with their strengths and weaknesses:

And now, here are the last three posts, to enable us to continue: 

Megan Wrote:At that moment, Greg opened his eyes yawning. He had woken just as Albany said his name. “What about me?”

Kyng Wrote:Sean thrust a flask of icy water in front of Greg's face. "Here, take this, it'll help."

Megan Wrote:Greg frowned at Sean as the water was shoved in his face. “I’m fine...” he grumbled though he did take a sip of the water. As he drank though he started to cough again...

I think it's Pyrite's turn, so I'll let him continue :P .

"Yay, Greg's awake!" Albany cheered. She was about to give him a likely unwanted hug, before he started coughing again. Instead, she sat down, next to him.

Having calmed his cough down Greg gave Albany a weird look. “What’s with you?”

"Look, now that we're all okay again, I think we should just go...." Sean suggested. "Besides, I'm really eager to find out what's hidden inside that puzzle table!" 

Without another word, Sean clipped both the Polar Peridot and the Treacle Topaz to his belt, and once again scaled the walls to return to the entrance to the ice chamber. It wasn't nearly as intimidating as the first time: he was getting quite skilled at traversing these cliffs, and he never felt himself to be in any serious danger of falling off.

Once he'd made it to the other side, he tossed the gems back across the cavern to Greg and Albany, so that one of them may follow him.

"Nothing's with me" Albany smiled. "I'm just glad you're okay!"

She stood up and eyed the gems that Sean had tossed over.

"You wanna go first?"

Greg merely smirked. "Nah, ladies first." he said shoving Albany lightly forward.

"Ooh er" Albany hesitated for a moment. "Okay. Sure. I'll manage."

She looked at the walls. They looked more menacing to her than they did to Sean.

"Okay, Alby. You can do this. One step at a time."

After clipping the two gems to her belt, Albany started inching along the walls. Her bad leg prevented her from making swift progress. In one moment, about a quarter of the way through, she lost grip on both her feet, and let out a yelp.

"Sean, Greg! What do I do!? What do I do!?"

"Can't you get your feet back up?" Greg questioned moving as close as he could, his face for once full of concern.

"I can try", Albany shouted back. "But my leg hurts." She was dangling from the wall.

"I don't wanna fall into the water!"At least her hands were still sticky. She wasn't going anywhere soon.

Sean dashed back into the puzzle chamber as quickly as he could, and retrieved another of the unused puzzle pieces. Then, he pushed it along the icy surface - which was so slippery that the puzzle piece glided across, until it came to a rest at the opposite edge of the cavern, directly beneath Albany's feet. 

"Try jumping on that", Sean recommended. "Can you do that?"
