OOC: Does Fated have any inkling of what danger was avoided when he passed the save? Like, did he feel some grav effect tugging him into the ring and he maintained his footing, or did he shrug off whispered voices and some compulsion to hurl himself in?
I would describe the sensation as: Fated's feet took on a life of their own and wanted to step through the ring; mindlessly, almost like sleepwalking. Fated's brain won the battle and maintained control over his body. Now that he is conscious of the effect, he will not have to save again.
Breath is too far away to examine the portal in any detail.

Fated unties himself. "Breath, reel the rope in and tie one end to yourself and the other end to the bridge. Give it enough play so you can get close enough to read the ring. If you start into the ring, the rope will stop you. Then I'll smack you in the head or something to bring you to your senses. Sounds plausible, right?"
Breath of New Moon narrows her eyes (invisibly ), then shrugs and does as Fated suggests. "I will leave my weapons here, so I will not involuntarily cut the line if I am overcome, nor be in the position to cause damage to you if you need to attempt to save me."
Breath fails her save vs. spells (7) and is overwhelmed by desire to step through the portal! Her feet move of their own accord, and only the rope and Fated's timely tackle prevent her from walking through the stone ring. Alas, due to these jarring events, she is unable to concentrate for a turn and attempt to read the runes.
[Had Breath not been prepared with the rope, I might have required Fated to make an opposed Strength check to stop her.]
