When everyone's upstairs again Ornvul requests, "Stay here, please. Just going to close the door."
She descends and tries to use Telekinesis on the relevant staue's arm so as to close the secret door to the disturbing room.
After returning to the others upstairs the scout says, "OK, we have a choice. Who wants to go which way?"

"The stairs? Seems like the path of least resistance."

'Sure. Fine by me,' acknowledges the scout.

Ornvul returns and manipulates the statue's arm with magic. the newly discovered secret door indeed closes as expected.

The amazon shrugs regarding the choice of the stairs over teleporter. One seems as good as the next.

Yelb follows quietly.

Onvul buddies up with Pik at the front, "Who needs a 10' pole when they've got a Pik?" leaving Those Who Clank to follow thereafter.
As Pik's intuitive trap detection is 10x faster than her own traditional hands-on searching, Ornvul is content for the small fellow to lead the advance which she covers with her bow ready to fire over his head from a couple of paces behind.

After giving the customary head start to the scouts:

"Ah Cait, how do we always find ourselves in these kinds of places? I know I know, for the adventure, for the fortune, for the fame!"

"Oh keep your fame old man. I'm just trying to keep my mind off my parents. Killing monsters seems to keep that at bay, bu tat the rate you like to convince everyone how smart you are... the killing is a bit thin this trip!"

Ornvul leads the group back through the room of the original troll attack, and up the ladder to the large snakehead. Entering the stairway in the stony reptilian mouth then pass beneath the carved name Vytholus once again and descend the lengthy flight of stairs. At the bottom theypass through the room where the dragon corpse was cremated, and take the long diagonal hallway to the north east. The stench from the other nearby hall still curls their collective noses. Passing the skull-lined steps, pik skips one, pointing it out again to the others.

Finally they reach the top of the wrought-iron spiral staircase they have yet to explore. Pik takes the lead at Ornvul's urging. Down, down, down into darkness he leads along the metal path. For minutes they travel before finding the end. The bottom of the iron staircase terminates in a multi-leveled room. The floor of the eastern and western ends sit 20 feet lower than the center. An archway on the east wall is connected by a 10 foot wide bridge. Another archway lies in the western wall at the lower floor level. Two sets of stairs on the north and south wall lead down to the lower area to the west. Directly south of the spiral staircase stands a pair of iron doors on the central ledge; the arch above carved with innumerable snakes. Another smaller door lies along the north wall in the sunken area to the east.

[the top of the grif-map is north. The detailed drawing is the view facing southward. The square sections on the east side of the grid-map are at a lower elevation as described]

"I'm always partial to going left first."

Cait just rolls her eyes.

Yelb scans the room for magical auras.

Yelb's magical vision quickly detects a scattered array of rods on the platform they all stand upon... and even more along the stairs and ground below... they appear to be common sticks, but under the veil of invisibility...


-----
unfortunately, due to artistic decisions in the above graphic, left on the grid-map is right on the image. the module artwork was apparently opposite to their mapping layout in this case.

"Be careful. There are invisible sticks scattered around the platform, the stairs and the down floor." Yelb warns and goes to the closest one and closely examine it. If nothing suspicious is observed (using Cantrips to detect traps) he touches it with his sword.

========================================================
(OOC: Are they on the floor or above the floor and can trip us?)

"Invisible sticks... what non-sense is this... I wonder if my Faithful Hound could fetch me one!" Jar will chuckle.

"Still with the jokes old man? At least that one was entertaining." Cait will almost, almost smirk, but no one will actually see one.

Yelb determines the invisible sticks are quite mundane otherwise, and seem to have been simply scattered about...

wisdom check for yelb please

Yelb wonders if the sticks are a construction that was scattered.

=================================================================================
(OOC:
[1d20] = 10 Wisdom check passed I think.)
