Karl moves himself to cover the young redhead and the pretty young Cleric, his sword at the ready as he discreetly moves before them.

Sir Karl steps discretely ahead of Mira and Elsa into the cave, the pair of women only a half pace behind

Seeing that none of the rest of the group are stepping forward, Jerry and Merrick enter the cave together as the next in line.

A deathly-cold chill passes over each of them has they move beneath the cavernous fangs and into the symbol wreathed chamber. Elsa gasps at the site of the markings and Jerry also recognizes many of them for what they are; Evil symbols of power, pain, and torment. There are dozens of unrecognizable markings scattered among them; perhaps with similar meaning from unknown lands and traditions.

Merrick and Elsa shiver almost in unison, but shake off whatever it seems to be.

The path branches off quickly in two directions, but the darkness in the passages ahead seems unnaturally deep, having an almost liquid appearance like a wall of ink...

Jerry comments, "Some evil, tormenting symbols these. Can you feel the oppression in here?"

Mira shivers visibly, the chill entering her bones as she pulls her cloak tighter around her, wishing that perhaps for once she might have covered up. "Evil.. Gods this place is evil." her shoulders slump down as she forces herself onwards, she had a task, and a task she would achieve. "Left or right?" She asks, "Not that it matters.. not that..." She peers onwards, eyes unaccustomed to peering into the darkness waiting for those with better eyesight to give her a clue.

Pyros continues on to the right. Listening, skirting the walls, and trying to be quiet.

"This is a foul place, evil hangs off these walls." In his mind, he heard the screams, the Dragons wails as it died, again he drove the silver lance into the creatures body, again it howled.

He lifts his head with some effort, using his leg to support his sword hand he grimaces as the sweat begins to soak the leather of the ancient blade, the screams were around him, Harrison, the poor child, his screams echoed in his mind as he kept his will. Onwards he pressed, following of all things a Kender!

Elsa nods back at Jerry. It's like breathing through wet wool... or in the middle of the summer when the air is heavy like lead... I can hardly even feel Yondalla... like a single candle kept just around the corner out of sight.... The hafling tightens her grip on her mace and shield.

Enough of this murk... Adrestia pauses to dig out and light her lantern, the bull's-eye opening in the side of it casting light in a long beam. The new illumination makes the runes and symbols almost glitter in the dark as if the carvings had an almost glossy quality to them. The fighter shivers despite herself, just as Pyros moves on...

The passages that previously appeared like liquid-pitch lie now only partly illuminated. The floor ahead is covered by an eerily moving mist, jet black in color, and perhaps knee high on a human. The low fog looks almost like some vaporous ink. There seem to be things moving about in the mist, for it has ripples and eddies like those caused by fish in a river, but no sign of any living thing can be seen in the seething black smoke.

As Adrestia lifts the lantern over her head and past the short rogue, those in the fore can see that the black swells extend only a half-dozen paces or so. The passage ahead is narrow enough that the tall folk are forced to turn sideways to make their way deeper.

===
The black mist is about waist high on Pyros...
The red lines mark the beginning and end of the inky knee-high (or waist high for the small folk) mist...

Pyros wades in 10 feet gets the feel on his legs.

If he feels ok he will duck down, move 10 feet submerged then jump up.
"BOO!"

He is actually trying to see if his darkvision works.

As soon as Pyros wades into the black fog, a sluggishness comes over his form as if he were wading through thick syrup...

=====
Pyros is Slowed: all Dex combat bonuses negated (AC, ranged attacks, dodgeable save bonus) and a 4 pt AC penalty, movement and attack rates halved
