"Do we not even want to consider these steps going down?" asks Miss Imogen from the other side of the room, pointing to the staircase behind her.

"SSlave passages are usually less guarded than the main thing, misssus. And sssecret passagesss too." Ussal offers, knowing that most of the secret passages are more often for the society elite than hiding slaves from view. After all, if you don't see them you cannot torture them.
"And dungeon masssterss usually don't want to remember to skip sssecret tilesss all the time. It may be a safer way."

Chrysagon looked at Ussal and shrugged. Famous last words, he thought but said out loud that he was with Imogen this time. Let's go down the stairs. At least we know that the door to the passage was not trapped. He then exited the same way they entered to join Imogen. Come on, he said to the others.

Miss Imogen nods at Chrysagon. She's tired, and snappish, but is pleased to have been heard. She heads to the staircase behind her, and as she peers into the inky darkness of the descent realizes both that she should lead the way, but also that she needs a torch.

She retrieves one and lights it, and then picks up her bow in her other hand. Holding the torch up, she begins her descent, at least to see where this staircase leads.

Dellrack shrugged, seeing the others wanted to go down the stairs, so he followed, axes out, as they headed down.

Myrral looks between the paladin and the snake-man, his loyalty to the paladin and dislike of yuan-ti implied uses of such passages warring with his curiosity and the logic Ussal provided.

In the end, he follows the rest of the group, motioning for yuan-ti to join them.
"Hopefully, we will have time to look through that passage too. And identify the ring. Come."
 

FitzTheRuke

Legend
After some discussion, the group headed for the secret stairway, leaving the southern hidden door behind, unopened.

The stairs descended at a long but shallow decline, some thirty feet down (but nearly twice that going forward. About halfway down, it became apparent that there was a flickering light at the bottom - likely firelight, and the sounds of hissing, thumping and clanging. Though he was a traveller by nature, and had been gone very long from home, Dellrak recognised the sound immediately from deep in his soul: It was the sound of a forge. An active forge, being worked by strong hands.

Dellrak held his hand up to the others. “Forge,” he whispered to them quietly. “An’ active. Someone want t’ take a peek?” He looked to the more stealthy members of the team, since he himself wasn’t particularly quiet in his scale armor.

"Forge? What is a forge?" asks Myrral

After the explanation is given, he explains it to himself "Magic place where stone turns into hard shinies. Is it dangerous?"

"Are the ones working it dangerous? I can go see!!"
as he speaks he grows more and more animated (wanna see!! let me! let me!)

Finally, he just slinks into the shadows not even listening what others are saying and is soon swallowed by the darkness.

Ussal rolls his eyes at the mammals theatrics. But he can appreciate the skill shown. Keeping at the back of the party, he motions Yassah forward. "Keep behind the paladin, but keep things off the archer. Protect the paladin as you can, the longer he stands, the better for you. I'll join you shortly."

Opening again the hatch in his armor, he sends a miniature draconic creature after tabaxi.
"Keep well back, don't attract attention he avoids. Screech if he encounters trouble and return."
 

FitzTheRuke

Legend
Myrral slipped silently down the stairs, followed by Ussal's feathered flying snake. The bottom of the stairs opened into a large chamber lit by iron braziers that were hung by chains from the ceiling. Five dwarves shuffled about the chamber, working on a bulky metallic contraption that stood on a raised dais to the north. To Myrral's sharp nose (and the snake's darting tongue) the room smelled of blood, smoke, and putrid decay.

The contraption appeared to be something like an iron maiden; two of the dwarves were driving spikes through holes in its cast-iron surface, while the others were to the south, one working a forge while another hammered out new spikes. The fifth dwarf would douse the spikes in several bubbling vats of noxious liquids (best left unidentified.)

All five of the dwarves may have once belonged to the albino dwarf clans of Chult, but either way, their pale skin had the greenish tinge of undeath and all five wore helmets built to resemble the green devil-face that was so common in the tomb.

As Myrral stopped at the bottom of the stairs, Dellrak stopped farther up, not wanting to intrude on the tabaxi’s stealth with his clanking armor. He watched the tabaxi carefully, hands near his weapons, waiting for an alert or report.

Myrral returned carefully and described the scene in the room.

"I didn't see anyone giving orders. But there has to be someone bringing fuel and stone inside, right?"

Miss Imogen, finding herself at the back of the pack as others have crowded past her, readies her bow. When she gets a chance, she will enter the room, and cover the door (or doors). None will escape.

Dellrak listened to Myrral’s report and nodded. “They cuild ‘ave access t’ an underground quarry,” he mused. “Fuel would be ‘arder, but ye dig deep enough, ye cuild find a black gusher. It burns really well.”

The dwarf looked at the others. “Sae wot’s the call? Wot they’re makin’ dunnae sound too guid.”

"Uh oh, it may be a kind of a golem or other contraption, we need to ssstop it now! Or avoid it all together. Quickly! Are there other exssitsss from the forge?"
Ussal speaks quickly, trying to assess if the group solves things by killing or talking. By now, they seemed quite risk-averse, not surprising given the Curse and light armor most of them wore.
"We could rush in now and try and dissable it. But now!" He slithers around members of the group, his strange armor making hissing noises as it slides over the stone and scraping against their clothes and weapons. He ends up in front of the group
OOC: assuming no one stops him
"Lets go!"
 

FitzTheRuke

Legend
The dwarves took surprisingly little notice of Ussal as he came down the stairs. One was crossing the room, even passing by the stairway, holding a metallic rod, heading for the clanging iron-maiden-like contraption, while the others stopped their work as if to watch what would happen next.

OOC: If you want to attack, now would be a good time. I have a few people down a few HP in my notes. Feel free to correct me if some healing happened that I missed.
