[Oof, yeah those migraines can be brutal. No worries, get some rest. I hope it passes soon.]

Jerry considers exactly how the web spell might form, rarely did one need it to be so precise as to create such a close alignment with the lip of the pit. As she begins to casts her spell the skeleton in the center reaches up and begins to remove the crown and holds it over the void as if threatening to drop it! Her evocation ends just as the undead releases it!!! Time seems to slow as she throws a tiny patch of web against the stone wall inside.

The sticky structure springs into existence in an instant and exactly as intended; just high enough to be used as a ledge and in contact with the chains. In fact, the slack in the chains have buried them slightly in the web, along with a foot or so of the skeleton. Miraculously, the crown does little more than land on the webbing beside the undead.

After the bedrolls are cut in half long-ways and rolled up, the kender approaches the webbing. He rolls the first strip out carefully above the be-webbed chain for more stability. Shuffling along the somewhat bouncy surface he carries the second and rolls it out as well, careful not to touch the sticky substance. Artanis arrives from one of the portals, blinking in surprise at the recent developments. Crawling on hands and knees Pyros brings the third strip forward and rolls it out towards the skeleton, who glares menacingly at the Kender with glowing red eyes. The crown glitters nearby in the webbing.

[That worked out about as well as it could have :lol: Needless to say, it seems pretty obvious the skeleton will attack Pyros if he comes close enough to reach the crown]

"Huh, think you all could distract it with some missile fire while I try to fish out the crown?"

Merrick considers the kender's words, fingering his sling. He looks around in the corner and finds a handful of stones. We used up most of the stones we had taking out those skeletons on the ledges in the other room, but there are a few here. he hands a couple to Elsa and to Jerry, then takes aim himself. Two stones fly, and two stone strike true; shattering the undead and scattering his remains across the sticky webbing.

Looking at the webbing, Merrick shrugs. If the web were not there, it would have fallen in the pit when we killed the skeleton. Gods only know what lurks down there.

Being careful to avoid the web, Jerry tries an evocation cantrip into the dark hole, "By dint of light from by flare, may things concealed by darkness be laid bare."

Jerry tries to peer down past the webs, but the spell covers the entire pit. Even so, with all of the fog present, it would have been impossible to determine what lies beneath. Pytor arrives nearby through one of the portals. Well... Looks like the gang is all here... and here I was worried all of you had stepped into oblivion... I hope Cross makes it through soon... he is the only one left... Hey, is that the crown?! Great!!! We're almost done!!! he enthusiastically claps Merrick on the shoulder, who nearly staggers at the blacksmith's powerful 'blow'

====
So the skel that was holding the crown is dead and the crown is stuck in the webs nearby.

Mira holds back her spells, ready to fight the skeleton if the stones dont work. She lets out the breath she didnt realise she had been holding and pats Elsa's arm in appreciation.

"Well done! We might actually have it.." She exclaims and urges Pyros on.

Karl watches from the side, annoyed despite himself that he was unable to hurt that creature.

"Any more bedrolls or clothing I can make a path with?"

==================================================
Is he able to pull up any rolls used to get to the center and redirect them?

[Ooc]The ones down are stuck in the webbing already. He can reach the crown from the end of the existing path. There is also one strip of blanket left about 7ft long 2.5 ft wide.[/ooc]

Pyros manages to get into place next to it. (How does he want to go about getting it out?)

"Here we go!"

He will take his sharpest dagger, and try to cut around the crown while holding it.
