"Uh well if we start to encounter enemies in that area... I would start to be concerned about the mind switching."

Yelb gives a little laugh at the comment, "yeah... that would be annoying... but what choice do we have? We need to press on."

"Care to join us Cait? Your weapons may come in handy?"

Hoping inviting Cait will entice Pik into helping them check out the statue room.

"One moment." Jar casts Stoneskin.

Stoneskin: [1d4+6] = 2+6 = 8

[Thought they had already gone down when yelb tried 'reduce' but it doesn't matter much]

I don' wana get switch-swapped around anymore. You better be extra careful. The kobold grumbles but ultimately joins them.

[Oops lol, well Jar casts Stoneskin anyway]

"Ok, ok." Cait will sigh and swear under her breath.

As the four gather below, suddenly the unseen force assaults them yet again! Yelb is caught unprepared and feels his mind ripped violently from his body! After a seemingly interminable moment, the half-orc finds himself back in his own body!

===
Save vs Spell!:
Cait (7), Jar (7), Pik (7), Yelb (8)

Save vs Spell Cait, Jar, Pik, Yelb [1d20] = 13,[1d20] = 10,[1d20] = 10,[1d20] = 5
Cait, Pik and Jar pass!

Yelb fails!
But is returned to his own body!

"OK, so the runes doesn't prevent the mind swapping!!! Grrrr..." Yelb says agonized. When they are at the statue room Yelb broadcasts, "Stay at the entrance so you can fallback quickly... Hmm... and Cait, maybe you want to stand near the secret door, to see if there is any change." he then goes near the status closest to the entrance and start to examine him without touching, searching for any bumps or levers or anything out of place [edit] following Ornvul suggestion[/edit]. He uses Cantrips to illuminate the statue closely.
If nothing brought up, he will try to create origins of sound close to the statue to resonance in hope to decide if it is hollow or full, and lastly he will carefully touch its head with a sword ready to fight.

Yelb visually examines the statue very carefully, even using a bright light to inspect the surface. The statue itself seems all of one piece. Next he uses vibrations to determine if it is hollow. From what he can tell, it is not. Finally, drawing one of his many swords, he taps the statue's head. Suddenly the mental force assaults him! This time, however, Yelb is able to hold onto his sense of self and avoid being shunted from his body!

Pik, who has also been inspecting statues from the opposite side, shakes like a dog out of a lake; then begins muttering in kobold.

==
Yelb and Pik are attacked by some unseen mental force!
Save vs spell Yelb, Pik [1d20] = 12, [1d20] = 9
both save!

"I haven't had that assault recently. But from the look of Pik,
He just did. If we are about to test our luck, now seems the time."


After a few seconds of contemplation.
"Maybe we should also lure any threat up to the stairs where the mind swapping seemed to stop."

"Agreed." Yelb says. "Well, touching the first object with the sword didn't do anything. Maybe they are waken by some other trigger, such as live body touch, blood, viper venom ot the name of their foul god. So I guess I'll try these now in this order but first, dear Jardirger, can you call Pik back? In his current location if the statues will wake, he will be trapped."

Pik casually complies, walking back over to stand by Jar. Then, in one smooth motion, he draws a dagger and jabs it into the base of Jar's foot! Dere's your heel. Don' forget. He says through a chortle.

'Have you examined all the statues for seams that might indicate moving parts? And also all for differences in level (or type) of magic between all of them?' queries Ornvul, ever careful.

======
@Tristan - I'm thinking it could take a while, maybe 5 or 10 mins, to properly examine each statue, so time-wise have the group overtaken Ornvul's recursive exploration yet?

Once Pik is back with them Yelb reaches to touch the statue, ready to fall back if needed. During his movement he hears Ornvul suggestion to check ALL statues first. He hesitates but rather not be in the middle of the statues if all will wake up. "They radiate at the same power. String one." he says and touches the statue.
