It stopped growing after a week. The Elders left the changed site alone for another week,to guarantee the oddity has ceased growing.
When the Elders consider it safe enough to approach the strange rope objects. They send a small group of five men consisting of fighters and scientists to tentatively explore the objects.
The group of five reaches the odd construction within a week of leaving their village. The group encounter no problems during the journey and the reach their destination in good time.
The first task the scientists perform is to find out if the rope objects are touchable. They use a wooden stick to test touch-ability, as a wooden stick is easy to drop if need be. After a moment of the stick touching the rope object, nothing seem to occur. Scientists move onto their next test, finding out what the inside of the ropes looked like. To get a look at the inside, they break off a part at the end of the rope object to study further.
As they are breaking off a specimen of the rope, they notice a pattern engraved into the ice like material. They examine the pattern closer, they notice the pattern looks like lines crossing over each other. Thus, creating an intricate circular pattern, that appears very delicate to the eye.
The group decide that before exploring the rope object field further, the specimen they are taking back needs to be examined further. After gathering what information the men are able to at the time, they make their journey back to their village.
