    You arrive back at the wall. It seems that the hole the worms came from has opened wide enough to be an archway. Peering through gives way to a new hall lined with statues made of obsidian or some other dark metal. The door at the end of the hallway contains six black spheres that appear to be translucent.

    Theda and Tonn follow the worms and drow through the archway and into the new space.

    "Interesting. Do the worms know where to go next?"

    She moves up to about 10 feet away from the door with the six black spheres, trying to see if she can make out anything inside.

    Iivraena thought a bit before replying,, "I'd think... but in case...." She looked down at the worms, "If you do know the right way, go in front of the correct passage. Even hints would help out." She'd had a back-up plan should the answer be no as she began signing to Alakdriirn, In case they don't know for whatever reason, get ready to inspect all the orbs. They look more arcane in nature and thus you might be able to figure out what they can or can't do along with if they have any sort of hint within them.

    As you sink through the ground and move to the other side of the door you sense some creatures above you. A quick peek reveals a group of stone creatures most likely golems atrolling the room. They stand only as tall as a full grown human male would.

    Drifting back to the far side of the door, Theda pops up and resumes her demonic form. She grimaces at Iivraena.

    "Charming. There are a cluster of stone golems patrolling on the far side. Possibly, the correct operation of these orbs turns off the stone men as well, but I have no idea what to do with them. We might be able to kill them all, but it seems like more danger and work than we'd like, and could draw a lot of attention. I don't suppose that the two of you have the ability to travel insubstantially? If so, we might be able to just drift past them through the floor."

    Iivraena frowned upon seeing the worms failing to move, meaning they weren't sure. "Tch....fine then." She turned to Theda, about to ask her what she thought before quickly being given that, making her sigh. "Hm... my helm does have the ability to teleport but with no way of knowing what exactly lies ahead, there will be more likely disaster we'll face than success. If you really want, I can try... but even I, myself, try not to use my Helm without knowing what the next room is supposed to look like. Maybe, however, if we focus on what the priests should look like, it might be able to get us close to them if not before their eyes. But, I am going to allow you input on this."

    Theda opts not to object to being 'allowed input', and merely smiles.

    "Wise not to teleport where you can't see. I'm not sure how to determine what the priests look like - or even to believe what we learned, since they are masters of deception and disguise.

    As your orb passes effortlessly through the door, you see a large chamber about 70 feet wide in diameter with a height of about 50 feet. In the center of the room is a large air elemental. It's vortex swirls beneath it, tossing wind around the chamber. There is a hatch in the ground behind the air elemental. It is sealed for now.

    Iivraena smirked a bit. "I, myself, cannot. I can see it but not become it in all irony of ironies. However...." She gave a tug on Alakdriirn's leash, indicating she was referring to him as she continued to speak, "He can become invisible. The main drawback is only he can do it; thus he couldn't share the powers with me. But......" She nodded upon getting an idea. "It'd be complicated in the number of steps but assuming it goes well, it should work. He'd have to go invisible first then, while being able to see him, I could be able to follow him on either foot or teleportation, whatever ends up being necessary. Then you and Tonn can proceed with your potion of your idea. If for some reason I can't get to him easily enough, we can fight our way out if worst comes to worst. However, your idea as a whole I do agree with... I just had to get past all the technicalities that were making this difficult."

    Theda nods, and backs off down the passage that they had come from.
    "Look, if you don't turn invisible, maybe I can make this easier. If you two can blast a hole in the wall for yourselves, I'll bring in a flying creature that you can ride up to the ceiling in that room - it's pretty big. If they get a bit nasty, you can either fight them from above, or fly out the other side of the room and block off the tunnel between you with a wall or something. Tonn and I don't really need doors at the moment. We'll stay below, and pop up occasionally to check on you."

    If the drow seems comfortable with this, and are showing any success in blasting through the wall next to the door, Theda will summon a hippogriff and instruct it to follow Iivraena's instructions. She and Tonn will wait until both drow are safely airborne, doing what they can to draw the stone golems' attention, before dropping down into the ground in Xorn form.

    Iivraena thought a bit upon Theda's words, shooting Alakdriirn another glare out of the corner of her eye. "Third time won't be a charm.... keep that in mind....." She said in Undercommon to Alakdriirn, hinting she had been keeping track of how many times he'd spoken out of turn. Her eyes remained upon Theda as she spoke again, this time in Common, "Yes, that would be acceptable. Ready when you are."

    I believe we all have those days. Glad you're feeling better.


    As Alakdrim starts blasting through the wall, Theda brings into being a proud, dark brown hippogriff, then she and Tonn turn into emerald dragons and move up to about 30' behind the wall. They wait until the drow are through the hole in the wall and out of the blast area, then let loose with sonic screams - both to damage any golems on the other side, and to draw attention away from the flying dark elves.

    Alakdriirn focuses his blast mainly towards the hinges of the door or where they would be located, causing the door to fall forward into the room rather than trying to blow up the entire wall. The golems, attracted by the sound, begin moving towards the fallen area as Alakdriirn and Iivraena run over to the hippogriff, climbing aboard and holding on as it took into the room, flying into the other end. The dragons shrieks manage to keep the golems from advancing any further as they try to push through the sound waves, some of them cracking under the intense pressure.

    The air elemental flashes out of existence with his defeat, returning to his plane. He had put up quite the battle, managing to dismiss at least one of the Heresy Elementals while wounding another. With the room now free of enemies and the swirling vortex, you are now free to look around.

    Once the screaming has ended, Theda and Tonn transform back into the ungainly looking Xorn, join hands, and drift down 10' below the level of the floor. No point in damaging some perfectly good golems if you don't have to, after all. They shift 10' to the right of the line of the tunnel leading into the chamber, and begin to move forward, aiming for the far exit from the chamber.

    The golems are to busy focusing on where you were to deal with where you are now as you all make it easily over to the end of the room. The long hall in front of you seems to be cut into sections as a worm or centipede would be. at the end of the hall stands a archway that appears to lead into a antechamber of sorts.

    Theda is relieved when she and Tonn pop back up a minute later and discover Iivraena and Alakdriirn hale and hearty, although this emotion is admittedly hard to read on the face of a creature with a barrel body and it's mouth on the top of its head. In a moment, Tonn is back in his customary glittering dragon form, and Theda returns to balor form.

    "Well, that was fun. I believe we might yet make a useful team. Shall we?"

    Noting the strange, segmented nature of the hallway, Theda sends her thoughts to her companions.

    "This would seem in keeping with the nature of those worms that you tamed back there. Perhaps a design theme for this part of the temple? Or perhaps we're inside a massive stone stomach."

    Approaching the chamber, Theda slows.

    "This gives me a flutter in my stomach for some reason. One moment."

    With a moment's chanting, she brings into being a small ball of air and malice, which he directs into the chamber.

    "Go, and look all around there. Look down but do not enter any of the other exits. Return and report on what you find."

    Iivraena smirked, nodding in agreement. "Indeed... we have much more in common than it immediately appears." She'd wait to see if she could even figure out the two immediate ones she had in mind or not... though when one thought of it, it was easy to realize that both used what was considered divine magic and each had their own type of... pet, companion, whatever noun one wanted to use to describe something each dragged along with them.

    As they approached, she stopped when Theda did. Upon looking down, she saw her summon her own elemental though not nearly as huge as the ones Ia had shown off... though it was probably better for now considering she didn't want this temple falling on any of them. She kept quiet for a bit before speaking again to the worms, "Follow behind the elemental and either report back your findings, the right path if you know it, or both."
