Based upon Dafenia's remarks which Sheen shares with the group, he recommends the southernmost of the East doors as a starting point....no need to investigate the storage of dead rotten things in a dark room from his perspective.
Ignoring Big's concerns about the orc, Skara replies to Sheen, “The door in the far corner that doesn't stink? A good choice. I'll check it out; just keep the lights a ways back.”
Hearing the party is inclined to move on and is not really concerned about the orc, Big decides to let the matter lie. The orc will likely die by someone or something's hand soon enough anyway by the looks of it. Everyone moves behind the wall across from the orc (who now appears to be sleeping in a sitting position on the ground.)
Sheen prompts Dakar to draw his weapon and head down to the southeast corner where they take up positions against the wall just north of the door (BF40).....Sheen continues to maintain his invisibility....and listens intently.....but hears nothing behind either door.
Skara creeps over to the recommended door and checks it for traps. It seems safe, and the door is not locked, opening easily when she pushes on it. As Skara peers into the darkness beyond a heavy smell of stale air hits her, causing a momentary gasp, but she quickly gets hold of herself and steps into the room. The room is pretty big--about 30 by 50--and has bits of dried grass as well as larger hunks laying all over the floor, as if a tornado recently tore through a meadow. Unfortunately Skara is caught completely by surprise as the full aroma of the room hits her like a hill giant's club. She quickly covers her nose and mouth with her arm, but decides she better leave now before she adds a new smell of her own to the room (coming from her now partially digested lunch.) “Moloch's fire! This room smells like the inside of a devil's bowels!”
Skara is able to spit out between gulps of (the now refreshing) damp cold air “Room looks empty Sheen--you wanna fly over and tell the others...” Sheen replies “Sure thing. I wonder if the whole dungeon smells bad?!?”
| OUT OF CHARACTER |
|There is a strong distinctive smell in this room, mixed with the smell of body odor and excrement. Anyone who enters this room need to give me a Fortitude save to do so. Anyone can also do a "Knowledge, Nature" check to determine what the smell is and a Perception Check if searching.|
Skara: nauseated (unable to attack, cast spells, or do anything else requiring concentration; can only take a single move action per turn).
