Book 1 -Journey to the Tomb of the Firestaff – Chapter 2 – Hall of Champions

“The only way is onwards,” spoke Rheill.
Next, they deliberately start to move forward and around the corner where the dungeon takes a sharp ninety-degree turn to the right; there is a side passage immediately ahead, and it is presently off to the right. Then, another turn to the left, the walls are all detailed the same, nothing fancy at all; before the corner is a puddle on the floor as well.
Karna begins speaking, “This is most strange… there is no source of light, yet the dungeon is crystal clear. Perhaps maybe down the path as we go farther inside. We should find a torch or another suitable form of light-source?”
Sana replied to Karna in a subdued voice, not wanting to yell in case of anything lurking beyond, “If I can find the Runes for a light spell… I will most likely be able to cast it with the training that I have learned so far!”
Rheill and Isai look at Karna and Sana in approval. Nevertheless, Rheill mentions something else.
“We will also need to consider a source of food and water for our provisions as what we have will only last for the night.”
“Also, it is getting very late. We should scout this area ahead and then set up camp. Tired people are soon dead ones!” Answered Isai.
“We will need new armour as well; as we had to drop our equipment thanks to that dangerous bridge!”
Karna shudders when she mentions about that tight-roped wooden bridge; it shows she is still dead scared of what almost happened to her, though Karna seems to now be at peace with heights for the time being.
The humble, party of adventurers agrees with each other, and they press on to a little turning in the right-handed wall. All the entourage find is merely a very narrow corridor with nothing in it but a dead end. All of them did not need a step forward to investigate this; they decide to move on and head around to the left. As the party then attempts that, the group comes to yet another twisting corridor, and at the end; there is something on the wall. But from where the small group are currently standing, they cannot make out what it is at all.
“Let’s take a closer look, and I will take guard,” said Rheill quietly as he moved around the corner.
Karna then replied, “Don’t you dare go off too far on your own,” in a worried tone of voice.
“I most surely will not, honey… just trust me,” replied Rheill.
Karna turns away and smiles as Rheill calls her honey, hiding it from both Sana and Isai. Sana then examines the wall closer and notices some encrypted text; she begins reading it out loud, “Hall of Champions,” spoke Sana.
A puzzled expression crosses Isai’s face as he then tells the two females what he is estimating to himself.
“If this is the Hall of Champions? Why did Theron bring us here, this does not make any sense at all!”
Rheill returns and yells out extremely, loudly, “COME QUICKLY… YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS!”
Karna grabs Rheill and shakes him, “Calm down honey, we will come, but please do not yell, as you might alert something towards our presence!”

Rheill then drags Karna by her hand around the corner into an enormous hall. Karna screams out in fear as she sees several champions trapped inside mirrors along various walls of the dungeon. The transparent mirrors are in the shape of a square and constructed from some form of crystalline, and inside each one of them; it shows a unique face of either a man or a woman.
“Now I understand why it is called the Hall of Champions and why Theron chose us. However, Theron never mentioned any of these champions or adventurers. Did he try getting others, and none have returned or did more adventurers come here seeking riches and gold after discovering his dungeon only to fail?” Explained Isai
Isai then explains further with some more questions, “Nevertheless, was it those that tried in the past? Where did these people come from, Although the reality is that they are all now trapped and imprisoned by him?”
Karna says, “Damn you, Theron! Why did he not tell us these crucial details? Or perhaps he did not go back inside and is telling the truth, but I do wonder what else he did not advise us?”
Sana is still shaking in fear from the images inside the transparent mirrors as Isai cuddles her like a true gentleman and whispers softly into her ear.
“Sana, it is alright… they cannot hurt you. They are trapped, and we will have to be better and smarter than anyone that has tried before!”
“Isai is right… with some luck, when we are finally able to determine the precise nature of the Firestaff, which will grant us to restore balance to the universe. The champions may be released as well, and Chaos will hopefully be banished, for all eternity!” Said Rheill.
Karna starts to speak, “Let’s look around these halls and see if we can find any more clues or anything to help us progress. Although, whatever happens, we must never, ever split up. That may be why the others failed; we do not know, and possibly we will never know. We should do that after some rest though as it has been a long and tiresome journey here.”
“At least it is not cold in here, but resting on this cold, stone floor is not going to do our bodies any good, but at least we can sleep without shivering,” said Rheill.
“Isai, can you sleep close to me tonight? The images in the mirrors make me feel uneasy, and I will sleep much better if you sleep next to me,” asked Sana.
Karna smiles at Sana thinking that it so sweet; she decides to move closer to Rheill for him to defend her, even though she does not depend upon his protection.
“Sure Sana,” replied Isai.
Rheill surreptitiously smiles and does not recite a single word to Karna as they all try to get some rest from the long journey to the dungeon. Each one of the heroes, a turn to stand watch during their sleep until all of them have had a substantial amount of rest.
A few hours of time have passed, and they decide now to look around the vast hall, which is a spacious room with the same ugly grey-scaled walls. Where the heroes decide to go, they find numerous trapped souls of the fallen champions that had tried to defeat Chaos. They first stare straight ahead and determine this direction, leads to nowhere. They have to backtrack, and then they search for the right; but also discover nothing. Conclusively, they decide to go left to the main hall and presently come to what appears to be a pressure pad. A recessed square is, set inside the stone. It is also coloured grey. There is writing on the right-hand grey wall of the dungeon, next to the recessed area. After that is a metal door, in the shape of a portcullis, it has several small squares etched into it; which makes the door looks to be impenetrable.
The foreboding, cryptic text reads in big capital letters, “SURRENDER ALL OF YOUR ARMOUR AND WEAPONS ONTO THE PRESSURE PAD TO ENTER THE DUNGEON. YOU MUST USE, WHATEVER YOU FIND IN THE DUNGEON TO AID YOURSELVES, ONLY YOUR BACKPACKS AND QUIVERS/SCABBARDS ARE ALLOWED BEYOND THIS POINT!!!”
Isai speaks, “Guessing it means our weapons and surely it cannot be our clothes, as well?”
“I am already in my revealing clothes thanks to the bridge, and it wants me to get naked now as well and get rid of my weapons! You two would love to see that, wouldn’t you?” replied Karna as she winks at them and then starts to laugh.
Sana attempts to not giggle at Karna’s dirty joke, but in the end, all of them begin to laugh.
“Well, we will not have much fun once we pass beyond this gate. So it was good to have some entertainment now,” chuckles Rheill.
Karna, it only means armour. Not regular clothes, sweetie!” Said Sana.
“Good… as I am not getting naked! Neither Rheill nor Isai have earned the right to see any of that!” Replied Karna, and she pauses and says, “Yet,” she smiles slyly afterwards.

Karna drops her broadsword. Promptly she has nothing over her hindquarters. Karna is now revealing all her spine and figure; only to be covered up by her warrior-type corset top and her fighter hide. It is a fawn-colour, which barely covers Karna’s breasts and bottom; as it only preserves the private areas. Although both her petite, bum-cheeks, are showing. When Karna bent over to place the sword down on the ground, both Rheill and Isai appreciated a rather pleasant view.
‘Damn… Karna is one divine woman!’ Rheill mumbled to himself.
“Isai and Rheill, I hope I am not distracting you too much, but I have to do what this says. Maybe I should have put it down by kneeling!” said Karna, knowing she occupies their complete attention.
Isai looks at Sana and speaks, “Not at all, Karna!”
He then smiles at Sana as he watches Sana put her staff down next to Karna’s broadsword. Isai then puts his mace down, followed by Rheill’s two-handed sword.
“We have run out of both food and water, but I am sure we can acquire some in here somewhere. Yes! I can see an apple lying on the floor beyond the door. Also, the passage turns to the left!” Spoke Sana.
Karna decides to take point and steps entirely on the pressure pad, which causes it to lower down from her weight. Suddenly a clicking sound can be heard, which activates a mechanism. Suddenly the large metal door steadily rattles upwards as it opens slowly; it echoes through the large hall.
“Karna, be extra careful now as you do not have any armour on and you no longer have your shield to defend yourself with,” said Rheill, extending some kindly advice to her.
“You too, Rheill, you no longer have your armour either!” replied Karna.
“Get a room, you too!” Sana and Isai said together, teasing both Karna and Rheill, which results in them smiling at each other as they both take the lead.
“On a serious note… we should distribute all the food and water that we can find and make sure, it is done equally. We have to work together!” said Karna.
All of them nod but wonder why there would be an apple just lying on the ground. Sana spots a note lying on the ground; she decides to accumulate it and deciphers it aloud to all of them.
“If you are reading this, then I have made a colossal mistake and have endangered the world by playing with magic… I did not adequately understand. I wrote this some time ago in case something ever went awry. I left the note just inside of the entrance to the mountain. I was doing experiments inside this forsaken place. I was trying to find out how to free the Power Gem as it contained knowledge about magic and new spells, power and medicine to save the unhealthy people. But every day I felt a Chaos festering inside of my body like it was the opposite of my good side. You must stop Chaos if he ever gets fully free. I just wished I had listened to, Theron, my apprentice and learned the real incantation before casting spells randomly at it. I left my notes in the Tomb, where I stored the Firestaff on a daily basis. These must be recovered, deciphered and used to restore the balance to the universe before it is too late!”
Next, Sana obtains the apple and puts it in her backpack and says, “I will gather the food and sort it equally.”
Isai replies with, “I will manage our water so both Karna and Rheill can focus on fighting and be protecting us.”

Karna and Rheill both nod with approval while they take the lead in front of Sana and Isai as all of them turn the corner to the left. As the entourage turns to their left; they see a long corridor, and at the end, it swerves to the right. There is a side passage to the left and another turn to the right, further down before the other corridor that veers to the right. There is an unlit torch leaning inside of a sconce on the right wall. The Sconce is etched perfectly on the grey-scaled dungeon wall; the coloured sconce in shades of dark black much like the obsidian rocks from the exterior of the volcano. There also appears to be some stairs immediately after the sconce containing the torch, but it is difficult to tell from their vantage point.

They travel with extreme caution and silence toward the left opening in the corridor, only to find it is a dead end. Rheill grabs the torch off of the wall and places it inside of his backpack.
“I think the rest of dungeon will be darker as we descend into the gloomy depths and caverns of this horrific place!” said Rheill.
Sana spots a scroll on the floor; she picks it up and recites it softly, aloud.
“Cast the magic symbol Ful to light any torch within the dungeon… with constant training, you will eventually be able to generate a light source out of thin air. This Rune will eventually outshine any other luminescence!”
After Sana had read the scroll aloud to the others, she looks to be more relieved, about the illumination crisis.

As they approach towards the right where the torch was, the adventurers see it was undeniably some stairs leading down deeper into the labyrinth; the party decided not to take the stairs just yet. Nevertheless, all of them move on to see what lies beyond the right turn and at the completion of the corridor. Next, they traverse it more swiftly as all of them get the feeling that nothing is lurking or wandering around. Or clearly, they are becoming bolder as the entourage reaches the turning. Karna peaks her head around the corner and looks on ahead. She sees a massive wooden door that is curved slightly. The wood is separated into three columns and with a square button on the top right of the door.
“All clear,” answered Karna, as she motions the others to follow her with her hand gesture.
She operates the button, and the door slowly opens making a rattling sound in the same way as the previous metal-portcullis did. After the doorway opens, it reveals a four-sided room with grey-coloured walls like the rest of the dungeon and a wooden table in the centre of the chamber. The surface was coloured brown and was pretty, low in height and looked to only be able to hold small things like food. It is constructed from hardwood and on the cover of the table is some objects. The four adventurers start to walk over to the table to discover what the items are, as they were unidentifiable from a distance. As the party takes several, footsteps closer; they see a filled water-bottle. Isai reaches for the bottle and dusts all the powder that was coating it; the water-bottle is a brown colour and contains; at any rate, enough water for each of them to drink from it at least once.

“We will require some water to restore the bottle, but it will last for today. Sana, take the cheese and the corn for the extra provisions,” explained Isai.
The consumables were a full-length loaf of bread, and there is an uncut cheese also lying on the table. It was shaped round and closed in a red outer-coating, with the yellow cheese in the middle. Additionally, there is a full strip of corn as well with green leaves on the outside with the yellow colour in the middle. Sana takes all the food and places it inside of her backpack.
“Thanks to whoever left this for us, as we now have a bit of food, but this will not last… we need to find more. Feasibly, the person has abandoned a lot more for us if we search hard enough,” said Isai.
Isai decides to give the bottle to Sana, “Sana, you hold onto the water, too, because it is easier for you to control both. I will need my bags free for medicine in case someone gets hurt!” said Isai.
“Let’s head, back and move down to the next level… we have been everywhere, which we can explore. Nonetheless, let’s quickly check to be sure there are no secret switches in here,” suggested Sana.

All four of them investigate the room thoroughly, by checking each of the grey-tinted walls to find absolutely, nothing. They then retrace their steps back on themselves. All of them decide to secure the wooden door that sealed the room. They reach the stairs rather quickly, as it was a short corridor from the chamber that appeared to be a storage room. They slowly, boldly and cautiously walk down the stairs. Unfortunately, neither of them could distinguish a thing; as they penetrated an eternal pitch-black, profound darkness.
