Max replies to Corvin’s question in a stage whisper, ‘I’m at the bottom but nothi…..’

Feeling his foot connect, he freezes. Maybe it was a trap door - the other exit that he’d wondered about or maybe a booby trap. It might even be some loot if this place had indeed been an oubliette.

Lowering himself not a crouch Max begins a cautious investigation.

Max ducks down. Again. A whisper. Maybe it came from the top?

"Hurry, or you can stay down there."

Maybe its just the dark playing tricks on him..

He moves his foot towards what he surmises is a hard object buried in the mud.

Hearing the whisper Max freezes again. Either this place was trying to warn him to hurry, he was being bantered from above or he was plain losing his mind.

Whatever it was he probably had been down here now for some time. Taking heed of the words, he decides returning up the ladder is a good idea after investigating this object.

Dropping quickly to a crouch and using his hand lantern to cast as much illumination as possible in the direction of the object, he reaches down, bracing himself for something grim.

Lowering his hand into the stinking cold muck, Max finds a cold metal object. Further tentative probing proves it to be a dagger.

Feeling his fingers close around a dagger Max rolls his eyes but can’t help smiling that so much effort had earned so little reward.

Still, he hadn’t spent so much time time down here to return totally empty handed, besides you never knew when an extra blade might come in handy.

Attempting to withdraw the dagger from the cold muck he wondered again what this place had been intended for.

Whisper. "Don't let them know."

Max pulls the dagger free from the muck. As he cleans it off, the faint light of his lantern shows that it is of fine manufacture with a quartet of emeralds set in the hilt.

Raising his eyebrows at the lucky chance find, Max stashes the dagger in his back pack.

Having had enough of the voices in this strange place, he makes his way back to the ladder and returns to the higher level.

Corvin peers over the edge and calls down into the darkness in an overly loud whisper “Max! What have you found down there? Have you reached the bottom? Are you still with us?”


Peering intently down into the pit, straining to hear Max Laila suddenly jumps up startled as Corvin materialises beside her with his booming voice.

" Freyas Fitta! You scared me, Corvin."

Max makes his entrance at the top of the pit. Besmirched with unspeakable mud.
