“Let’s do it,” said the young rogue Nicolai.
“Yes, let’s. You mind grabbing some of that rope from back in the tack room?” Saeth gestured toward the back of the barn.
The rope was retrieved from the tack room, and the dwarf wound it about a stall post several times and tucked in one end, the other end he dropped down into the tunnel. He tested the strength of his ‘knot’ by tugging on the long end of it, hard. “Will that do?”
“It looks like it’ll hold.” Saeth took the rope and slid down.
She lowered herself into the tunnel. It was about 7-feet wide and was crudely hewn through mostly solid rock beneath the hill. The ceiling was about 8-feet high. After about 25 feet, the tunnel bent to the right.
