After resting a while, the party travels west down the corridor and over to a door.

It's closed but not locked. Even from outside, the smell of aromatic smoke is heavy. Opening the door a crack and peeking inside reveals the room beyond is some kind of repurposed rectangular area - whatever it was before, the new residents have cleared it out and hung ten dead hobgoblins on wicked-looking metal hooks (the hooks have been driven into the wall with great force) piercing through their chests. The smoke is coming from a covered pot of chemicals in one corner.

The room looks otherwise barren. The floor is greatly scuffed by people moving big objects (like, say, furniture) out.

How big is the room?
What are the walls made of?
Is there anywhere in there that people might be hiding?

The area is about 10 yards (from the door in to the wall opposite) by 20 yards (from the door in to the end of the room to your left).
The walls are stone, well carved and smoothed.
The room is fairly bare, you doubt anyone could be hiding here without secret doors or something similar.

Bain does not enter right away, he asks Telrith and Gathika to check whether the smoke is (magically or non magically) toxic.

(OOC: I just rolled for Telith and Gathika in secret, not using the usual room. I rolled a 13 (Telrith) and a 12 (Gathika) - do either of you have knowledge skills for whom that is a successful roll?)

At 13? Just Thaumatology and Occultism. And hidden Lore (Elements), if that matters.

Telrith knows the smoke is not magical and probably not toxic. He figures it's some kind of alchemical experiment on dead bodies?

OCC: "probably"? hmm.

"This looks like an alchemical experiment on dead bodies. Perhaps similar to the other boiling pot we saw. Not quite my area of expertise. The smoke should be no more toxic than the average alchemical fumes. I suspect the greatest danger comes from the possibility of undead. I say we go in and see if they left any valuable ingredients out. And smash any undead."

Thanks Telrith, then I guess this is the kitty's cake. Gathika could you tell us about your findings?

And then, Bain talks to Telrith:
I suppose we could send the elementals in; do you share your vision with them?

Gathika has successfully rolled for Occultism and Alchemy by 2 and 3.
