Pyros will come back into view.

He will wait for at least two others to catch up.

"The path splits into two caves not far up the path. Maybe 25 to 40 feet after the second bridge."

"Across, is it?" comments Jerry. "Well, fine. Lead on then. Unless there's anything else? Like does crossing the bone bridge call more of the wraith-things? One way to find out. Let's get a move on."

Happy to let the expert, one-legged delver lead the way, Jerry's keen to press on, hopefully towards the crown. She looks back to Merrick, smiles encouragingly, and then follows.

"Bloody Grit... gets everywhere... should have worn... a better top..." MIra manages to say between coughs, closing her mouth she slows her rate of passage slightly, happy that whatever had caused the Halfling to shout was a false alarm. Or at least she hoped it was!

Elsa continues across the shorter of the two sections to join Pyros, and Pytor moves ahead to the landing. As Jerry begins to cross, Merrick hesitates as the mist roils in the cavern below. The Mystaran reaches the middle platform, Pytor extending a hand with a proffered Careful, my Lady. before he too walks the short section to join the halfllings.

Mira and Adrestia emerge next to the odd discolored bone next to the crawlspace. Merrick takes a tentative step along the bridge towards Jerry, but all others are currently out of view of the Bard and the Gypsy fighter...

Jerry waits for Merrick to cross, symbol and mace readied, "Take your time.." When he's over she swallows, puts the things away to free her hands and then tries to cross over the next bridge.

If she reaches the far side she whispers to Pytor, "Using ropes would have been an idea," and then turnss to encourage Merrick across as before (holy symbol and mace equipped).

What's the circle?
============================
Pyros will head to the fork and take a gander down each way.

Going slowly checking his footing, trying to be quiet as a hobbling crutching Kender can.

===============================
Cross will sigh, and grab the rope to climb down.

"I guess we go on?" Mira suggests to the Gypsy eyeing the strange bone for a moment before moving on.

[sorry, the strange circle was a glitch from my map maker. it was Pyros' Token]

Cross makes his way down and through the tunnel as the others stand guard at the entrance; still waiting further word. One by one the others cross the eerie chasm, coming to the far side where Pyros stands at the fork...

To left, the passage snakes tightly. To the right, the passage splits again into two more: a natural looking passage with waist deep mist and A long, obviously worked straight room or hall some 15 feet wide

===
From here those without infravision will need a llight source. Adrestia in the back has a lantern and will be willing to go first or lend it to others as needed

"I'm gonna quickly check out this zig zaggy path."

Pyros heads down the path to the left.

Pyros hobbles ahead to find that the very narrow passage opens up into a man-made stone chamber. It is roughly rectangular in shape, but fans out along the eastern wall in a somewhat triangular manner. The walls are bare and show no signs of recent work. While it is impossible to guess the age of this room, a feeling of great antiquity seems to resonate from the entire chamber. The only feature in this room is a pile of human or demihuman bones along the eastern wall. A faint red glow, like the coals of a dying fire, seems to radiate from the heart of the bone pile and a thin grey smoke rises from them. The strange glow radiates no heat and the smoke, which smells like sulfur near the bones, quickly loses its scent as it mixes with the mists that drift along the floor of this whole area.

Thinking that is quite unique, Pyros almost rushes to the pile. But checks himself, and instead heads back to the fork.

"Afirstitseemedlikeadeadend!BUTBUTthereisthispileofbones,thatareglowing,andsmoking!"

Cross will slowly make his way to the ones gathering at the fork.

"Will you show me, please?" Jerry asks Pyros, suspecting an undead to be involved.

======
Does Pyros's description ring and metaphorical bells in the Undead Hunter's memory?

Cross makes his way over to the others. Jerry ponders the smoky bones but has never heard of any reference to something like that specifically

After explaining Pyros will head back. Expecting to be followed.

Double checking the floor and ceiling for traps or holes.

"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine." Mira attempts to summon a small light that hovers in front of her, nothing fancy just enough to make the place a little less dark. "Better, shall we cross this bridge?" She asks realising she was hanging back.

Cantrips [1d20]=4 Pass.
