Ch'aska was the first to get back to the room, and went straight for the locked chest. It was true that the actual orb being inside the box seemed too easy, but there was probably something inside it, or else they wouldn't have locked it. She examined the chest as well as she could,looking for the best place to try to break it(if that was what it came to) with out damaging what was inside. "Here's the box. Either of you have any ideas on how to open it?

ooc:
Here is your requested perception check.
20+5+1=26
Do I need a second one to examine the box specifically?
My idea for trying to open the chest is to use Weaken Substance on it,and then an Athletics check to break it open, but I'm still a bit worried about damaging whatever might be onside of that's the case. I'm all open to ideas, is what i'm saying.

Now that everyone else was out of the way, Arcantos moved as far back away from the lava pool as he could. Making sure he had a firm grip on the mole. The blue dragon bolted forwards, dashing as fast as he could towards the lava before jumping forwards, his wings opening and beating backwards and downwards to give him a boost of speed and air-time.

Ch'aska hears voices down below in the city, foreign voices similar but a little different than their visitor. She also hears a couple loud cracks of noise, like thunder, though the sky is clear and she also gets a clear sense of direction from the sound.

She thinks if one tried to just break a corner off of the box, it'd increase the chances of the item inside surviving the blow. It all still depended on the size of the object in the box: if it fit smugly, it could still be damaged, or wouldn't be able to fit through the hole if it was too small.

(anyone else having any ideas? If not, is Ch'aska going through with her plan?)

----

Arcantos glides across the chasm of lava: closely, with little room to spare. Luckily, you'll have room for a running start on the other end as well, so you should be able to make it back across without too much trouble. The staircase downwards is a little more poorly lit than the previous ones: though the number of crystals are the same.

Taking their silence as a sign they didn't mind. Ch'aska decided to ignore the odd noises for the moment, and focus on the box. She appeared to just be tapping the box, but was actually focusing her powers of destruction on the box, making it much less sturdy. Once this was done, she positioned herself carefully, and bucked the corner.

Ch'aska hears the crack of brittle stone as the box is broken. The kick wasn't too elegant, but was more than enough to do in the box without damaging its contents. You slightly misjudged your buck, however, as the niche, while large enough to kick into, was barely so: one of your hooves jars uncomfortably as it hits the stone edge of the niche before sliding in with the other: a searing pain signifies that your leg scraped the corner as it went in.

However, you can see amid the rubble of the box something shiny. A golden hemisphere, inlaid with a stylized depiction of the sun. It is hollow, and looks almost egg-shaped: or half of an egg anyways.

(Ch'aska has a scrape on one of her legs, and may have bruising. You can do a heal check or use any appropriate abilities, otherwise you'll have a slight penalty to athletics/acrobatics that involve the use of your back leg.)

"Ow." Ch'aska muttered. For the moment, Ch'aska ignored the injury, instead motioning to her companions. "Is this what we're looking for?" She then moved aside, and focused her powers on fixing her injury with her healing abilities.

Looks like we got a cutie mark critical!... on healing a very minor injury. Kind wish I could have saved that for later, but oh well.

Unaware of what was happening up top, Arcantos drew his sword, and slowly descended down the dark(er) staircase. Not only did it pay to be prepared, but the dragon had a sneaky feeling that there was a threat lurking in the depths of the temple, one that he might have to face... alone as it seemed to be.

Ch'aska's healing powers work wonderfully, making her leg as good as new. Maybe even better than new. In any case, she feels refreshed and invigorated, as though she had never been hurt.

It's possible what you found is what you came here for, the stranger was very vague...

-----

It gets darker as Arcantos goes down the steps, until it is very difficult to see. The steps seem to have ended. You hear a crunch as you step on something other than the usual stone of the corridor so far. You can't see much: just the faint outline of a chamber, its floor fairly cluttered. What little light is making it down here is glinting off of occassional reflective surfaces, likely made of gold or obsidian.

"Damn, I need night vision down here..." Arcantos muttered to himself as he carefully knelt down, inspecting with his hands and feet what the hell he had stepped on to make a crunching noise, otherwise he more than likely have to go back... and idea came to him, and he turned to the mole on his shoulder. "Hey, moles have good darkvision right? You know, for having to live in dark tunnels all the time?"

Ch'assa decided to examine the thing a bit more closely. Maybe this was the thing they wanted, maybe it wasn't, but they should still take a good guess. "Hey, Piasa, do you think you could tell Arcantos we found something? Oh, and I think I heard some voices down in the city. Foreigners, like Sir Farraway, but somehow different."

I was hoping it wouldn't fall to Ch'aska to make these checks, but...

Arcantos:

Rufus gives you a look with his beady little eyes- apparently he can't see much better than you can (ooc: oddly enough, it would appear Rufus does not have nightvision. However, I will let his Scent tracker help him out here.)

However, he does wriggle his little nose and whiskers, clearly trying to smell or feel what may be ahead.

"Nothing moving. Nothing alive's been down here for years. Just trinkets and bones."

Indeed, the item you stepped on seems to be a skull of some sort. Hard to tell what it might have been since you stepped on it, but it was relatively small, and delicate enough to be crushed outright- likely a small animal.

"Piasa found something!" Rufus relays to you.
"Don't like it here. Let's go."

-----
Ch'aska

The goldwork on the eggshell half is quite exquisite. The shell itself seems though it would have been difficult to forge, let alone the surprisingly intricate designs on its relatively thin shell.

It is clearly magical, however. You're not sure in what way. You are able to tell that this is apparently not its normal form.

"Found something huh?" Arcantos said quietly as he looked around, pondering his situation. If they had already found what they were looking for that cloaked guy, that was good... but that was also problematic... still, he could see here, and going on like this would be silly. He needed a touch or something. Scowling to himself, the dragon began to ascend the stairs once more.

(Arcantos's ascent back to the top room seems to be uneventful. It gets a little brighter as you go back up- though not as bright as it had been, and you glide across the lava pit once more without trouble. You see that the others had managed to smash that stone box, and that they now have a small egg-shaped hemisphere of patterned gold.)
