An Unexpected End

August 29, in the year 670 by Kingdom reckoning. Approximately 9:00 AM

Tom pushes the door and it swings open easily. The light from the torch Kheldru is carrying illuminates yet another long, dark hallway. Tom advances carefully, following what he assumes to be the brothers' tracks and looking closely for traps. After 45 feet the passage takes an abrupt 90 degree turn to the right and then continues on for another 20 feet.

Then the passage abruptly ends in a stone wall.

Underground, The Group Forges Ahead

August 29, in the year 670 by Kingdom reckoning

After some short deliberation, the party continues on down the passage with Draymun in the lead, Ghalen, Kring and Kheldru following and Tom, having retrieved his pole, in the rear carrying a torch.

The passage continues on for 60 feet before making a hard right. Draymun listens closely and hears nothing, he peers around the corner and sees a 15 foot passage that then opens into a large room. Draymun moves forward to stand in the doorway.

The room is 20 by 30 feet and is vaulted, rising to 25 feet in the middle. It is dark but you can make out the shape of old furniture, tapestries hanging from the ceiling and other signs that this was once a richly appointed living space.

To get more information, someone will have to move into the room. I have Draymun standing in the doorway, Ghalen and Kring behind him in the passage then Kheldru and Tom around the corner still.

You estimate it is about 8:30 in the morning.
