“Looks like that’s the way forward. Same positions as before everyone? Or shall we have a bite to eat first? Or maybe even look to securing that laboratory to rest for the night?”
“Sounds like a plan, this is as good a place as any to have a rest. Secure. Anyway Maruc looks as if he’s going to fall over any minute.” Miklos checked around the area to ensure there were no more concealed entrances and so forth.
“Do I look that bad?” Maruc started to yawn. “Excuse me. I’m quite happy to carry on you know. Don’t stop on my account.”
Feldard scowled at the sight of yet another magical portal at the end of the hall. “Mage, what’s the likelihood of that thing taking us back to where the other door is? Or do you think it more likely that it leads deeper still?” The dwarf didn’t relish the idea of using the magical portal either way. Putting the whole thought of it aside, he moved to check the door on the left, listening at it while the others debated a meal and such. “Can we finish this level before talking of rest? There is still this one door left other than that cursed portal. Nicolai your tall… what’s inside?”
Beyond the small barred window was a room containing six small prison cells. Four of the cells contained corpses. The other two were empty.
Saeth peeked through the barred window on the first door, gesturing down the passage as she did so. “I’d guess that the door at the end would take us back upstairs… unless you’ve seen another portal on this floor somewhere?”
