I have quoted this to my group and other friends several times now! It is hilarious I am so glad you had this experience and that you shared it with us.And please elaborate on the closet haha we had one player entering and ... disappearing
All rooms had already been explored. The castle had started to slowly crumble and the mist had started to seep through the main door after the group smashed Ciyradil's ruby in front of it, in an attempt to make it disappear. The dwarf had lost a leg to skeletons. As the party was running around very close to a state of panic, the frailer smashed the Orb while climbing the stairs to the second floor and his weapons turned to stone.
At the second floor, the group decided to test the closet once again, with a living subject this time. They tied some bedsheets around one of the servants' waist and tossed him in there. The makeshift rope broke apart and the old man disappeared inside. Then, the dwarf got the idea that the closet was the exit from the realm (he wasn't wrong). After some deliberation, they decided to jump in all together - rescued children and everything. At this point, the little boy said to a member of the party "I trust you mister orc, you ain't gonna let anything bad happen to us".
As they were ready to make the jump, the frailer decided to actually look through one of the room's windows and then the party realized the mist was gone. It was a close one.
Thanks again for playing the adventure site.
