We approached the estate, like any other day for me. However access to the library had finally been granted to myself and my allies. It was finally time to see what knowledge was stored within these walls. There could be information on myself or who I am, or rather what I am. You could tell some of the counselor’s were a bit weary of the others being in the estate and their purpose.
The library was not huge, but the biggest there has been on this planet. I immediately began cataloging their selection so it would be easier to know what information was in the library for future use. Jaden began searching around as well as Dazen. I suppose they were looking for anything hidden within the library.
Very shortly after I began cataloging, one of the other counselor’s came in. Of course his intentions were questioned by Jaden and Dazen as if it was our library and he was a guest. I had better things to do though, finding information. Still scanning and seeing nothing of particular use to me.
After the counselor left Jaden and Dazen began working at one of the bookcases and revealed a secret door. Behind the bookshelf was a large door covered in psionic runes. It appears I would need to feed it my own psionic energies in order for the door to open. This is a quite inefficient way to open a door. Why waste so much psionic power just to open a door.
Behind the door was another library. This one filled with information that the counselors did not want many eyes to be reading. Much of it seemed to be written in the first person as a Quori. It seems as though most of the counselor’s have been “bonded” with the Quori. We spent much more time in this room learning as much as we could.
They also kept some of their coin in this library,. That is also strange to me as well. Why would they not use the vault. Perhaps they do not want others to know about all of their wealth. Jaden and his usual nosey self discovered that the chests open the same way as the door. So of course I exhausted more of my psionic energy to open and close the chests. Hopefully we do not get into any confrontations this day. In the last chest, he found another secret latch. After triggering it and getting himself stabbed in both hands a stairwell was uncovered in the ground.
Wanting to poke around everywhere we don’t belong or not been invited to, we headed down. We left Dazen up top as he was the one most likely able to talk himself out of a situation if someone came into the library. The stairwell went down around 100 feet and then came to a doorway. The door led to a hallway with some type of well in the middle of a room, and two guards.
I contacted Dazen through our Mind Link and he began heading down stairs. We began to try to civilize with the two counselors, however that did not work out very well and it quickly came to blows. I did everything in my power to immobilize them and get the unconscious so we could bind them and question them. It was very strange because when I had dazed them they still used powers that I didn’t think they could. I will need to look into that.
We learned that there is yet another library down below, as well as prisoners and a sex pit. These counselors like to hide a lot of who they are. One of the bound guards also said I was not a Quori. It looks like that theory is gone. If I am not Quori than what or who am I. We are also now going to have some issues as these guards will most likely tell others about us but I do not wish to kill them. Do we risk it and explore more of what’s down here or simply leave. If we leave do we try just walking right out the front. How long do we have. We are on a clock right now with a deadline and we don’t know how long we have. So many unanswered questions still. When will I learn something.
