Tobold wants to throw the ball onto the plank. He also suggests a little more illumination, and indicates throwing a lantern-oil filled firebomb near where the worm was seen…..then he gets a playful idea “anyone heard of bowling? How about a wager as to who can roll one of these balls the farthest down the narrow plank”
“First lets deal with this,” Vinny gets out Turok’s sward and plunges it into the metal ball pit, and then activates the lighting function. ZAP-electricity crackles through the pit, “SKREEEEE” something screams inside the pit. “And that is how you do it,” Vinny smiles slightly
“Excellent!” yells the ghost , “thought those things would eat you for sure”
“Now for bowling,” Tobold gleefully exclaims
Gold is anted into a pile 10 from each
“What are you doing?” questions the ghost
Tobold whose idea this was steps up, shimmys a bit, and rolls his orb….the orb goes just over 40 feet before falling into the pit…..“Dam” Tobold exclaims wishing had cast an illusion to make it look like his orb went all the way. As you begin bowling the ghoul’s voice becomes that of a fan, he seems to hop up and down like an excited child watching a sporting event.
Vinny steps up with some confidence and rolls his orb……..almost all the way. Vinny’s orb travels almost 60 feet before falling off the plank and hitting the far wall inside the pit. “Awesome,” says the ghost.
Tiberious and Kvothe can’t match Vinny’s throw, both of theirs traveling further than Tobold, but not as far as Vinny, who scoops up his winnings. The ghost cheering “Whoo Hoo for the Halfling!” then " Awwww," when Kvothe’s ball falls off the plankVinny’s ball goes the furthest and he fist pumps a “yes” comming out of his mouth. Then (rolled the 1) falls over onto his backside, the others chuckle and throw their coin at him. The ghost yells “Congratulations to the winner”
Tobold questions “one tie all tie?” and then “double or nothing but your orb has to make it to the end, we keep rolling until someone makes it?”
As the others talk about bowling again, Vinny begins walking across the obviously trapped plank. He doesn’t seem to be in a trance, seems confident in his ability to deal with the trap
He is already 5 feet out on the plank before you even notice.
