The naga explains her findings about the hot spring, and Alexander
identifies it for what it is, a Holy Mana Pool. Not ones to look a gift horse in the mouth, Lauren
suggests rinsing Vandarzryx
's wounds with the water from the spring, hopeful it would work even without submerging. The rest of the group, having nothing better to do, grabs buckets, pots, pans, waterskins, anything that can hold water and begin what is quite possibly the oddest bucket chain they'll ever be involved in.
It turns out rinsing the hot spring water over the drake's wounds is effective, though it would seem to require relatively large quantities of water to take effect. They end up almost emptying the hot springs before all the drake's wounds are closed and scarred over, though it appears the spring is ever so slowly refilling itself.Vandarzryx
takes the opportunity to stretch as much as the cave allows him to, testing out how his body's feeling. He's back to fighting form, though a tender stiffness will make flying uncomfortable for a while. He's just about settled down again when a sudden booming noise can be heard outside. Then another, and another. Vandarzryx
identifies the booms as thunder echoing through the cave opening, though he's somewhat puzzling, sudden thunderstorms aren't exactly common to this region.
Sorry 'bout the absence, got the flu again during easter, and due to deadlines I had to work last week even though I was well under the weather. Didn't really feel like doing much of anything when I got home those days... Anyways, back to the game.
