Miklos turned to Nicolai. “Lanterns cast light a fair way. We would need to allow Seath and Feldard to saerch the tunnel without our presence if we are to rely on the advantage of their inhuman sight.” He rounded on the demi-humans, “Are you OK with this?”
“I’d be happier if we were all together.” Maruc said. Somehow he didn’t like the idea of the party spliting up.
Feldard ushered everyone out of the stall and worked the lever. The sounds of gears clanking filled the barn, and the floor of the stall began to lower. It gradually dropped down about 20 feet into a tunnel leading toward the tower.
He hefted his axe then looked to the Elf and mocked a bow. “Ladies first?”
Knowing that she couldn’t back down now, not in front of the Dwarf, Saeth looked into the tunnel. There was a twenty foot drop from the barn into the tunnel.
