The halls of the underwater maze twisted viciously, branching and curving with a vengeance, as if deliberately trying to lead the five off the path they sought. Hishe seemed to navigate almost on some strange instinct, pausing only briefly at the splits in the tunnel before chasing down one.

The torchlight cast the statues scattered through the maze into an almost demonic relief, and friezes along the walls retold, in a somewhat greater detail, the tale Hishe had related about the destruction of an entire land by some vastly powerful force capable of shattering the very earth into pieces.

Finally, the smell of flame, lightning, and sulfur began to fill the air, and Hishe finally slowed again. "...The Lugh were near, to try and stop the Sorcerer."
"I grab the sword!"
"Mmkay, you're dead."
"What!?"
"You just grabbed the sword of the god you were just personally responsible for banishing from the world for the next ten thousand years. You just got zapped by around a billion volts of Angry Divine Power. You're dead."

OOC: This is description for the benefit of the party)

The oppresive odor of sulfur and smoke filled the shattered chamber before them. A stone dais, once as tall as a man, was shattered to blocks. Three black stone thrones lay toppled. The rooms pillars were cracked and smashed, the fine inlays in the floor crushed to powder. Three huge, crumbling statues of smoldering ash stood or lay throughout the chamber.

Riisha and her brothers looked around at the destruction.  "This... is not a good thing."
Derris glanced at Hishe.  "We're too late, aren't we?"

"Not yet." Hishe's voice dropped to a growl. "The Sorcerer was here not long ago - and still must deal with traps in the maze ahead, while we may bypass most, if not all, and we won't become lost, where he will. If we hurry, we may yet have a chance." A sardonic grin crossed the Sionn's face. "Besides, we're already too close to the bringer of cataclysms to even think of escaping..."

Laren laughed humorlessly, and it sounded rather peculiar in the devastated cavern.  "Wonderful.  d**ned if we do and d**ned if we don't."

Freeda gave a deep sigh. "Well. Let's get this over with. If we're lucky then maybe we'll walk out of this wish our skins intact." She looked at Hishe, " Which way tall man?"

((OOC:  we seem to have lost the fellow who was driving the plot...  unless you want to write him out of the plot.  Possible, but messy.))

OCC: I'll be more than thirlled to exit Kasil characters in a grotesque manner of sorts....jumping bridges isnt my thing, maybe Kasils' is....write me in and I'll make Kasil a phantom(it doesnt exist)

OOC: Eh...Well, I'll think about it. However, Hishe's exit must make sense or the story just becomes...insane. We've come to sort of a jam. Blast that Kassil!

OOC:  The thing is, Kassil is the only one who knows what the hell we're doing.  ...For that matter, has anyone seen Fiokar Dracolas lately?

OOC: No. That's strange. I always associated those two because they joined roughly at the same time and both had to do with dragons. Hmmm....Thorny. Very thorny.

OOC: I've just been a little busy with my life and a busted computer. Kinda amazing how the stupid things can die. Any thoughts on either where to find Kassil or how to jump start the stroy?
