"Yea but everywhere I look this guy with no head is always there with the goddess.....and you sure its a goddess and not a god.....look here at how they painted the goddess, most of it is shapeless like the goddess is made from smoke or something" Poe looked at the drawings, mainly at the headless guy in most of them "Ummm....what if we find something related to this headless drawing, do you think we will find more?"

"You're right, Im basing my deduction off from the earlier drawings I have found in such caves. Usually the Gods are drawn as warriors bearing weapons, while this stance, " she pointed to one drawing where the arms of the Deity were raised to the sky. "is usually indicative of the goddess, but then again this could easily be a God." Julia said. "Lets see if we can find more drawings." she and poe walked further on.

As the walked further into the cave, strange columns started to appear on the side of the cavern walls, it was like they were carved into them, the cave walls started to turn into an old hallway, as they walked further in there was a strange statue of some guy wearing strange armor "Hey, this statue has no head either....do you think that this could be there god instead of that one picture?"

Ander sighed and began to thread ice through the rock around the small hole, expanding it once it was embedded and watching the rock surrounding the gap crumble until he had enough room to climb through. He did so, and stood up in the same chamber as Julia and Poe, spotting them a little way off. He joined them silently, watching Julia's brush shower rock dust onto the floor. Julia turned to talk to Poe and jumped as she realised he was there.

'Ander!' she said, a hand over her heart. 'Don't do that to me!'

'Don't come to see if you are all right?' Ander asked, brow furrowed.

'No, don- oh, never mind. Where's Danzel?'

'Don't know. He went through the floor of the river.'

"He did?" Poe squeaked, "Why? When?"
Julia was hardly paying attention as she moved back to the statue, trailing her hands over the statue. "Its very old, yet the craftsmanship seems to have survived through the ages very well." she murmured

Poe was jumping up and down worried "Calm down Poe" Danzel walked in from one of the corridors soaking wet "Well, I found some kind of fountain, there is also alot of passageways and one seems to be filled with strange smoke, might be poisonous so we might have to skip that hall until we finish the others"
Poe ran over to him and hugged him "Anders made it sound like you drowned" Danzel looked over at Ander with a confused eyes

Ander ignored him and stared at the walls.

'So what is this?' he asked Julia. Then he looked closer at the plant the deity was hovering over in the wall mural. 'That plant's poisonous,' he said.

Julia blinked. 'What?' she asked. 'Which?'

'That one,' Ander pointed. 'It's the geralona misonon. One drop is a powerful hallucinogenic. Two drops causes severe weakness and debilitating nerve pain. Three kills immediately. It's unfortunately traceable, but one can never quite be sure if the victim meant to use it as a drug and overdosed, so it's still used by some assassins to kill addicts.'

"Right..." Julia said, picking up on the tension between Ander and Danzel.
Hopefully they work through it...our survival rate depends on it. Julia thought with a sigh.
She leaned closer to the wall to observe the plant, "Using a poisonous plant as a part of the ritual?" she mused. "Did they offer live sacrifices?"

Danzel looked at the plant drawn on the wall "Oh, so thats what that room was, when I came out of the fountain it seemed like there were four other fountains in each corner of that room, and surrounding the fountains were strange plants that discolored the water, they must of used the fountain I came out of to dillude the concentrated liquid....thats just a theory though" Danzel looked at the statue "Another one.....I saw one that looked like this down the hall full of that gas, maybe that other statue has something around it."

"Hm, "Julia was intrigued. "I want to check it out....but investigating a poisonous room is too risky." She looked at Danzal and Ander, "Any ideas of how we can examine that statue without getting killed in the process?"

'If I can examine the gas, I'm sure I can find a preventative solution,' Ander replied.

'But you'll get poisoned in the process,' Julia protested, and Ander gave a chilling smile.

'I'm probably immune. If it's a poison that's been around for as long as these pictures, I'm certainly immune. I didn't poison myself daily from a young age for nothing. Anyway, it's probably just a hallucinogenic.' There was a pause. 'Shall we go, then?' he asked flatly, and Danzel led the way down the passage and to the smog.

Ander stepped in as the three hung back out of reach, tasting the air and smelling it. He nodded to himself and walked back out, where Julia was watching anxiously.

'Hallucinogenic. It's got some of that plant's extract in, and it's mixed with one of the airborne poisons of the theives, to make people unconscious. I don't recommend walking into it; you'll see very strange things and vomit endlessly for the next few days until it's out of your system. It went out of use years ago - it was too noticeable. People always knew they'd been robbed. Now if I...' Ander fell silent, sifting through his belt until he found plants and water, and began to mix a counter. He handed the phial to Danzel while he looked for a cloth. 'Don't!' he said as Julia went to take the lid off. 'It's potent.' He found a small square of cloth in another of the pockets and took back the phial, unplugging it and turning it quickly upside down on the folded cloth and back over. He plugged it again rapidly. 'Two breaths,' he said, holding it over Julia's nose and mouth. She complied, and he moved onto Danzel. 'Same.'

Once dosed, he put the cloth away. 'Okay. You have twenty-three hours. I suggest you start.'

Danzel looked at the smog and stepped forward, what he was not prepared for was the smog moving away from him, raising an eyebrow Danzel took another few steps forward, the smog moving away from him getting denser the more it moved back
"This is strange....if this was simple fumes made from plants then it could not move" Danzel was about to take another step but soon stopped when he heard strange noises further into the passageway, he could not see because the smog was now to dense, he turned and looked at Julia and Ander "Hey, I do not think this is normal gas, Anders, you might be mistaking about this stu....." the chanting suddenly stopped and the sound of something scrapping on the ground being lifted could be heard, the smog suddenly rushed further into the passage disappearing around the corner like it was being called back

'Now that is weird,' Ander said, looking after the smog. 'Are we going to investigate that, or are we pretending it's nothing to do with us and going back to the wall with the pictures?'

Julia looked back down the corridor to the pictures, thinking. 'I would like to see some more of them, see if there's any writing... but you said Danzel and I only have twenty-three hours of being immune, so surely we should investigate before it wears off?'

'I have more,' Ander replied. 'We can do whatever. If we are going around the corner, though, please bear in mind there are two of you, the flying bird person thing not included, and one of me, so I can't guarantee your safety.'

Danzel nodded. 'So what are we going to do?' he asked. 'Investigate and make an effort to look after ourselves, or go back and come back later? And I have another question, too. Why did that allow Ander to just walk into the fog, and then run away from me? Was it that I have an antidote in me, but Ander's antidote is pretty much his blood and body now?'

Ander looked thoughtful. Good question, he signed. Danzel looked slightly confused, and sighed.

"Danzel is right, that smog is definitely not your normal plant fumes, I want to find out what it is. In any case, Ander has made sure we are immunized against the plant poison so it gives us the liberty to move freely for the time being in case we come across any. Let us check out the source of this moving smog. Something tells me we might make some interesting discoveries." Julia said, already starting after the smog.

Danzel followed close behind, Poe ran after them as well. The fog was going very fast down the passage way's and corridors, soon they found themselves in a very long corridor with openings in the wall for the dead.
"Oh, so this is how they buried they're dead, they made a huge crypt and placed them on walls" Danzel walked up to one corpse and noticed that its head was gone, he went to another one then another one, all the corpses had no heads "Is this a ritual or something, why are they're heads missing."
