(OC: confirm that you're all taking the passageway on the right?)

The rightmost passage from the entrance, yes.

Making their way away from the dead end, the adventurers go down the right passage. They quickly come to a split in the path; to the south is a tunnel that is echoing with some kind of animated chatter. The other way is much shorter, it ends in a dead end where a wooden chest sits.

Bain asks his friends to make sure the chest isn't cursed or protected with magic, then he checks the chest with traps 14 (8)*. If we need lockpicking, he will carefully try to open the chest (15+1) 16. When it comes to surveying the chatter's source Bain rolls camouflage (17) 7, Observation (13) 7 and Stealth (16) 7. If there's light ahead, he advances with Mihrimah. If there's no light, he will advance using Mihrimah as his guide and take cover at good sniping spot, the party should advance in formation and illuminate the place with their "light-sticks". Bain whispers:

Friends, Mihrimah and I will take the lead. If there's no light, we'll take point and then Mihrimah will throw a pebble in your direction so you can advance and shed light. If there's light, we shall take point and attack, then you'll be able to rush and attack.

Friend, let's go... (Bain whispers to Mihrimahís ear).


*Luck spent to prevent critical failure.

Bain's inspection of the chest gets results, but they are disappointing all the same - the chest is booby-trapped. If it is opened, and it is unlocked, it will set off a mechanism that lowers a portcullis behind the person opening it.

The other way is safer. The tunnel opens up to a lit room with stairs going up. A line in chalk has been drawn on the floor down the middle. Against the near wall is an open-topped barrel with several crude wooden mugs on a table next to it. Another barrel against the far left wall has long sticks kept in it. In the middle of the room is the source of the chatter - six goblins wearing dirty leather armor playing tug-of-war with a knotted rope in the center, with another leaning against a wall, drinking from a mug and cheering them all on. All of them have spears sheathed on their belts, and several more spears are lying around.

(OC: the Language they are shouting is Orcish/Goblin-Kin.)

Using his tools and taking extra time, Bain makes it: Traps (16) 16. He asks his friends to hold the door so he can run and escape, just in case.

Bain barely manages to disable the mechanism without setting it off. With that done, the chest can be safely opened...and inside is nothing but a piece of paper with unfamiliar words in large poorly-written letters.

(OC: Anyone speak Orcish? Otherwise, they do not know what the note says.)

Also, there's a severed human head next to the note. Bain recognizes it as that of his comrade, Vic the Digger!

(OC: Bain, roll a Fright Check. Exploits page 10-11. No-one else sees the severed head.)

Bain makes it (12) 9, he takes a look at the head and says:

Seems you REALLY got a fan here, Vicious. Look, there's a replica of your head in the chest. There's also a note, a letter from your fan, maybe?

Bain asks Gathika to check the note.

Vic plays along.

Vic inspects the head using naturalist, to see what it is made of, rolled 7 out of 14.

It is even less ugly than I am, impressive!
