Shivering, knowing the dangers of hypothermia, Gundrabu dries himself and makes haste to get back into his furs.

It is not nearly as cold as it used to be when his hair was cropped instead of halfway down his back. But Gundrabu hastes his furs, and as he does, a small golden ring falls out of his fur's inner pocket and clinks along the floor.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Tilak points it out.

"Cousin, your ring."

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu tries to stay angry with his helpful cousin.

“Yes, of course.”

His—Igrest’s, rather—Ring of Warmth.

Gratefully he scoops it up and slips it on a finger.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

"What now, then? We're stuck down here, without supplies, and no idea what to do next. If time has passed, and we're older, not just 'aged', then the beast men may well be back and in greater numbers. Otherwise, we're stuck down here, wandering these tunnels. Either way, we'll need food!"

Kondor goes up the tunnel to where the daggers were, and grabs one for himself. *better some sorcery than be dependent upon others to see in this pit.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

The remaining daggers are back down the dark tunnel at least 500 ft. Does Kondor go alone? With what light?
Tillak's lighted dagger was lost in the river. And was not seen on the walk from the grate to the steps. So there is only Gundrabu's at present.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Can Kondor see the light from the dagger on the other end of the tunnel?

"Gundrabu, Tillak, come with me? I'm going to get that dagger." Kondor says, then heads up the tunnel towards the dagger.

The tunnel leading back to the two remaining daggers was not straight.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu will lead the way back to the bottom of the well.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

After Gundrabu, Kondor will follow. Then I'm assuming Tillak?

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Works for me.

D6- 1!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu, Kondor, Tillak at rear.

Gundrabu leads the way, his general grumblings continuing until he stops dead in his tracks only 20 ft into the corridor. 
Illuminated by the dagger - A fist-sized pile of dung blocks the way.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu wordlessly points it out. He doesn’t want to step in it. You don’t mean that it actually “blocks” the way, right?

If Gundrabu can step around it and proceed, he does so.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

It's only a fist sized portion, easy to step over. But it wasn't there before.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Kondor looks at the poop.

What kind of creature made it?  How long ago?  How far did it fall from the butt of said critter?  Was the creature an herbivore or carnivore?

Is it probably one of the beast men?

Kondor bends and uses his barbarian prowess. The dung is 5 mins old made by a man who eats refined foods.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Tilak peers down at the feces. 

"What could have done that?" he muses aloud. His pick and shield are out.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

From the other side of the poop, Gundrabu motions with his luminous dagger.

“Come, Kondor. Do you want your own lighted dagger or not?”
