All three of you stir as a loud thunder booms outside, the sound of rain surrounds you yet muffled yet it sounds large, hollow, like being inside a chamber. Its cold and a bit misty but it staved when all of you three realized that you are stacked on top of each other.
Whats evident as of now is that its raining and it is evening, broken occasionally by the flash of lightning outside. All of you stir up and is now awake.
>>475933 >>475930 They are nowhere to be found around in this room. What you see though are a couple of broken chairs and tables, and old worn out painting and the smell of mildew.
>>475935 As you go around, you stumble upon you feel something arong… One of your wing is dislodge, its not broken but it felt a bit painful.
>>475937 You look outside and amongst the rain and lightning, you see a vast forest ahead of you. Below you to be exacty it looks like you are on a large structure. The wind battered on the closed window and the howling can be heard inside. The area is mountainous but since you peer far, you can see some kind of lake far from here but you are not sure. There is also something… odd but you cant grasp it yet.
>>475940 You have fixed it somehow but it still feels a bit cramped.
>>475943 The painting is faded and old, a bit torn on the side, its paint is already melting but your keen eyes somehow see its details even in the dark. It depicts… some sort of an armored ape smiling, standing next to what seems to be.. a giant pony with small eyes. As you stare at it somehow the two figures seems to be staring at you.
>>475948 There's are two doors nearby. Both of them are shut.
>>475952 You opened one of the doors and it leads to a cabinet of some sort. Its pretty large but all it contains are tattered clothing and the smell of mildew with an opening or a rectangular hole at the top, its very very dark up there. The other door leads to a corridor with lined windows and an old carpet in the middle of it. This room where you are now is at the end of the hallway.
>>475967 >>475968 You have no idea and it appears Miiba can stand on her own. He even pushed marching dawn away as he stands up over the boxes.
>>475969 How can you forget that voice. Its Miles, though her voice does not come from above it comes from some sort of conical shaped pipe device that is made of brass attached to the wall. Its old and rusting. "H.. hey! Is that you Miiba? Gideon? Marching?! Are you there! Where are you?"
>>475973 >>475972 >>475973 She seems to be hysterical a bit but calm. "N.. near the roof? Then that means we are far from each other. I am here in some sort of kitchen… it a bit dark and it smells down here. I dont know where we are or the others and I am all alone. What happened with that machine?!" She seems to be frustrated for a moment. "T.. this pipe is some sort of voice relay in the whole house, I spotted it when something crash from the other side and I recognize your voices. "
>>475980 >>475979 >>475978 No kitchen or stairs. Another thunder boom an the rain battered the wooden roof as you enter the other door and you ran through a long hallway which ends to a double door. There's light on the other side of the door.
>>476486 >>476497 >>476499 All you see is a dark room with a lit fireplace. The place is a bit barren with some rotting books and a table nearby. Three doors are evident from here though there is no window whatsoever.
>>476543 You step on some of them and its a bit mushy under your hoof, you flip a few of the pages but a lot of them are of no value except for the few that was stacked in the middle which are a bit dry and the text are… readable.
>>476541 The door you checked is locked, you try it with your talons but it wont budge,
>>476540 It is. There is something staring at all three of you in the darkness with its large eyes. Its as large as you and its shaggy with two large owl like eyes and a beak. Suddenly it opens a small door and goes inside before closing it.
>>476561 There are three door, one door that Gideon checked wont budge while the one you checked leads to another room. Its a bit spacious and has a bed in the middle of it. Lightning flashing from the window reveals that it is perhaps a master bedroom.
>>476563 The history book is a bit faded already and you have a hard time reading it specially with the lighting condition. What you can make out however is a picture of a dark sun with a tree on a barren field. The text say something about this house able to withstand some famine but you blink a moment or two after that. Its just too dark to be reading right now.
>>476580 You picked the cooking and the history book. You also picked up two additional books that looks in fine condition and head back to your companions. Gideon who is in what looks like a bedroom and Miiba who just kicked down a tough door.
>>476584 The doors hinges breaks and lets loose of the door. What you see is the door leads down this floor, but the area below is dark. Very Dark.
>>476583 No key but this place is a bit.. surreal. Its decayed like the other two rooms you came from but this place has some normalcy in it. A table here, two cabinets, a large mirror and a chest are what populates this room. The window is banging a bit because of the strong winds though.
>>476600 >>476596 After navigating in the dark, the stairs leads to a room in what appears to be commons room the same above. It is barren and there is only one window in here, that gives poor illumination. A fireplace is also present in the same location where the fireplace from above is situated though its unlit. There are more spiders down here, some of them looks like a bit fat now that you think about it.
Something feels… odd though.
>>476598 Whelp, its stuck, though you can see chest hinges are very rusty. You feel alone though.
>>476713 You are not able to open the chest, the master bedroom door is open though, the cabinet is closed so is the window.
However the door the door in the common rooms that wont budge is open courtesy of Miiba who kicked it.
>>476707 Slowly you advance, you see two more doors in here. Rotten tables are present and a lot of webs with little spiders skittering around. The floor is also a bit crunchy as your hoof steps on it.
>>476708 The room is a bit dark, it will be wise to bring some sort of light source in the area. '1d10'
>>481010 You try to pull but the webbing is too sticky! You cant pull her out of it but you do notice that the tug of war is even and the spider is not able to pull her higher.
>>481014 The other Spider jumps at you and dragged you down!! It began to spin web on you but you are able to kick its head out of the way which makes it not able to spin in you in a cocoon. Your talons also helped and with that you are able to escape but you are still in a prone position. Helpless.
>>502655 Whelp, you are not fast enough and the spider jumps at you and began to bite you.
>>502657 You're steady pulling irritates the spider and it attacked you!
>>502658 Miiba's pulling you down distract the spider so much that it left you dangling high in the air. The cocoon is not wrapped that tightly and a bit of work might be needed to get free, but you still feel woozy.
>>502667 You are able to stand up, the spider however stop its movement and began to panic.
>>502668 Not that crushed but you are able to disable it, the spider is not able to move and began to squirm inside the bramble, its mouth clamping tin the air trying to desperately get out of it.
>>502679 >>502670 :The poison is beginning to seepin and you began to get a bit tired and relaxed. Like sleep is trying to get inside your head but suddenly a….. small bird like thing holding a torch began to burn the webs surrounding lmaking you fall down unto the floor, released from the webbing but tired and helpless.
"Follow me." It said in a monotone voice with its finger pointing to a trap door.
The spiders are panicking as one of the large one's try to kill the fire that is spreading.
You then notice that it is a bit small but at the same time it is also some kind of elevating room that leads up and down. The bird owl thing began to pull some lever with great effort, some rust began to creak out of it and the elevating room began to descend. "Upper area's of house is housed by nasties, better to stay below if one dont want to be disturbed by them."
