Orb of Argornia in Fantastical Role Plays Posted July 7, 2014 · Report post The morning came swiftly enough, and Hirras returned to the inn to meet Haruka as planned. "The remaining tomb is actually not far from here. That is why I was in the area, hoping to find an adventurer who may be up to helping me clear it of dangers, that I may investigate." he explained. "I've arranged horses for us, also. As promised, I'll pay for the expenses during this expedition." They rode for a few hours before reaching the location. It was a burial site for many nobles and wealthy sorts, and so the two had to split up to search for the tomb with the correct name - it was under an alias, but fortunately Hirras was aware of that fact and let Haruka know. That was what kept it hidden in such an obvious place as a regular graveyard. Eventually he found it and beckoned her over, "Here, this is it." It was a fairly regular headstone, but as Hirras rested a boot on it and pushed it downward, the earth in front of it retracted and revealed a hidden stairway leading down into darkness. "So far so good." he said. But then he noticed that down in the darkness there was a lit torch at the bottom. "No torch should be burning still... someone has entered recently." he frowned. "Well, Haruka, do lead the way then. I'm not much for combat, so I'm afraid if there's others in there seeking the map for themselves I won't be of much use. Be wary of traps too, though I suspect if people have gone in ahead of us they may have triggered or disabled them already. Hopefully." Hirras kept his cloak closed around him as if he was cold. But in truth, he couldn't let her see what was inside it. There were six lightweight swords attached all around the inside of his cloak - not exactly something that made sense for someone claiming he was not used to combat.
