Someone agile needs to go up there and hit the gem with an axe or something. I suggest that Gilbearro and Karken boost Sudipel up past that man onto the wire. Or, perhaps someone could lasso a rope up there and then climb it. Either way, we must act. Skotians are dying, and once they are dead, the priests will surely turn on us."

The Gem itself is undeniably a bad thing, something made of pure malevolent necromancy that seems like an affront to all Good. It radiates an auro of powerful evil that suffuses out across the top of the arches, and that evil seems to twist and slide down the silvery rope from which the man hangs like poison coursing through a vein.

Someone agile needs to go up there and hit the gem with an axe or something. I suggest that Gilbearro and Karken boost Sudipel up past that man onto the wire. Or, perhaps someone could lasso a rope up there and then climb it. Either way, we must act. Skotians are dying, and once they are dead, the priests will surely turn on us."

You assess that, ignoring magical approaches like flying or levitating or the like, you would have to get off the urchin to the ground in the room, in order to climb the arches (and they look EXTREMELY difficult to climb, ie you'd need to have a pretty good `Climb Walls' skill) OR you could reach up, then climb past the hanging man onto that silvery rope, then shimmy up that to the point where the arches meet, and then the gem."

He's obese and has long hair, but despite his weight he looks wan and gaunt, the folds of fat in his belly and behind and face sallow and jaundiced â€" he doesn't look well. His eyes are closed and his flabby arms hang down towards the `urchin' which is about three feet below him.

The Gem itself is undeniably a bad thing, something made of pure malevolent necromancy that seems like an affront to all Good. It radiates an auro of powerful evil that suffuses out across the top of the arches, and that evil seems to twist and slide down the silvery rope from which the man hangs like poison coursing through a vein.
