Hasan looked back at the party, ready to open the door. “No,” he hissed. “Not yet.”
Gesturing at the wall, he said, “There are tracks here that lead into the wall. This must be some kind of secret passage. Who can know where it leads, but shouldn’t we start out here? Whether the tower was Elyan’s or some necromancer’s, it is a dark, dark place today. I’d rather not charge through the front door.”
The dwarf seeing Hasan at the wall and then catching his whispered words, waved back the others from the door and went to investigate the wall. “This may just be the way that the Rahib entered. But you are right in that it needs to be checked out.”
Miklos spend the next few moments trying in vain to decypher the carvings of the door whilest the others examined the mystery of the disappearing tracks.
The priest followed the dwarf over to the rock wall. “Perhaps he climbed?” Maruc gazed up the wall to see if there was some obvious cleft that might be an exit.
The two resident experts, Feldard and Nicolai, then began a detailed investigation of the wall. After a few minutes, they discovered a hidden mechanism disguised as a rock that opened a hidden door. The door cracked open, revealing a second tunnel leading away from the entrance to the ruins.
