While looking in annoyance at the cut on his arm, Rix says something you cannot understand into the chamber ahead of you. A creature answers in a similar language, and after a moment a kobold comes into view, disables what looks to have been a hidden trip wire at the end of the tunnel, and lets the party into the antechamber. Two other kobolds stand in the room, each holding a small crossbow at the ready, but not trained on you.
A voice answers, "Hold then if you be a brother." A moment later a fellow kobold comes into view and looks you over. He must realize that you are what you say you are because he then says, "Watch your step here, kin." Walking forward he disables a trip wire that was just a few steps ahead of you.
"Come forward and explain who you are and what you are doing here while the All-Watcher decides whether to see you," the kobold says demandingly, while holding a long dagger at his side. You notice two other kobolds, each armed with a small crossbow, standing in the room.
