Moving to join the others MIra raises an eyebrow, "Zombies?" She asks and approaches the Girl, "Not to be a buzzkill, but, I've gotten a little sour of damsels in distress, I know its your Knightly Code but, I'm going to be watching her like a hawk." And with that she begins to seach the room.

Jerry lays a healing hand on the woman, who struggles feebly. The palor of her skin improves slightly, but it is quite clesr she is still very weak. Metal bands spiked into the stone slab still restrain her ankles, wrist and neck. In a parched, raspy voice she struggles to speak; eventually croaking out a few words in Harmonian. Wh...who...? please.. she'll be back...

Elsa watches the woman with concern as she makes her way to the room. Mira examines the space. The room is dominated by the monolithic black slab. The alcoves of the room were obviously designed for shackling prisoners to the walls, but the shackles the undead bear seem to have been made so thhe pins can easily slide free of the stone.

Pytor inspects the shackles and packs a couple sets away, breaking the skeleton's free of them if necessary.

"I'm Jerry. The hag is dead. Called herself 'Nisab'. What's your name? What happened?" Jerry gently repeats in Harmonian, trying to reassure the woman. She methodically searches for wounds or puncture marks, accompanied by supportive smiles and pats.

Adran, upon hearing something about some "she" coming back asked, Who is this person you speak of, madame? As he does he starts to monitors the exits to the room and looks around in the alcoves for any possible hidden entrance. Here we go again, he thought!

Pyros will hobble over, and put a waterskin to her lips. If she is ready to drink he will tip it. Not wanting to drown her.

"Do you want me to Translate?" MIra asks.

Jerry looks behind her at Mira, "Yes, please. Did I say it right?"

"Close enough." The Bard stands the opposite side to the others, "If you mean the woman who looked young but was actually older than the Heavens, she's dead." She explains in Harmonian.

Jerry inspects the woman's skin, but no wounds are evident on her. Rather it seems she has begun to wither or be drained by more than just hunger. Th... the Hag... Radaga... she can... shift... take the form of victims... small tears leak out as she squeezes her eyes shut. Nisab... my sister... i came to find... silent sobs interrupt her words. Limply she hangs feom the metal bands, eyes staring hollowly into space in despair.

Pyros offers water, but after the tragic revelation of her sister's demise, the woman doesn't seem interested at present.

Adran searches the alcoves as best he can amid the webs, but there doesn't seem to be any hidden features to the room

"So Hoooooow do we know this isn't just another trap?!
He strokes his bare chin like he had a 2 ft beard.

His eyes light up!

Hobbling over.

"What was your grandfather's name? How many chickens did he have? How old was your grandmother when she died? What did your mother like doing best? How old was your father when he died?
What did you have for breakfast?"



If he manages to get through his string of questions. He nods firmly, and spins on his good leg.

"She seems drained by some malignant force that's beyond my ability to rectify," says Jerry.

As an aside she tries to test the metal band to see if it can be released quickly.

======
This is following up Pyros's speculation, i.e. fake bands, like the undead had, in case this is actually Radaga II.

Seeing that she was anchored by metal chains, Adran asked Shall we cut her loose? One swing of the sword could take care of some of what holds her down. He paused and looked around once again, then said However, we need to be certain that we aren't falling into another trap.....which isn't my specialty.

"We have to free her, what is this thing? Lady tell me, what is this thing?" Karl remains kneeling by the woman, concern lining his features. "Something is drawing her lifeforce? What could it be?" He asks his gaze fixed on the woman.

lol, I love it. What language is Pyros' volley of questions in?
What language is Karl's question in?

Jerry and anyone else looking can see that the metal bands holding the woman are solidly spiked into place. There is no lock, there is no latch. Metal spikes were hammered into the stone to secure a solid flat band. Likely some amount of steel or stone will have to be destroyed to remove them. I would also accept a successful bend/lift roll to remove 1 article (there are 5. 1 each on wrists, ankles and neck)
