Shaking his head all Arthur could think to say was

"welp so much for negatiating a better deal with these guys than the mages guild would offer..."

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
The elf launches forward with his knives held in fencing posture and calmly states, "Thank you for getting the door for me. Let me give you something in return." He attempts to poke both of the unarmed human's eyes out.

In reply to Espiri Skyblessed (msg # 164):

Espiri holds the head aloft, impaled through the eyesockets... as the body detaches and falls over backwards. The hallway beyond is sprayed with blood, and the two crossbowmen lie dead, although one spasmodically fired his bow at the ceiling as he fell, and the other fired past Oz, about a foot above his head, striking the back wall.

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
Oz glances at the bolt sticking out of the wall. He sheaths his blades and stalks into the room. "Damn it all. Unless we go an hire a necromancer, we probably should leave one of them alive. They probably could of given us some information." He looks around the room but fails to find anything yet again.

18:47, Today: Osgood rolled 17,15 using 3d6,3d6.  PER 14, Search 14. Another crit fail on the PER

"Oh come off it lad, surely these are the muscle. No black market paut dealer is gonna open his own door."  Valdnur says, then he pauses looking at the corpses, "...I mean he wouldn't would he?"

Is there another door to go through?

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
Rick scowled at Vald as he lowered his crossbow for a moment. He then raised it again and moved around the room scanning for any other guards. He then took a few moments to dig through the room for anything useful, perhaps something he can use to brew later.

19:35, Today: Theadric Greenbottle rolled 4 using 3d6.  Scrounging 19. Crit!

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
After beheading the first of the three guards Khoza calmly walks over to the other two downed guards and beheads them aswell, looking almost sad that there was not much more of a fight to be had.

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
In reply to Arthur (msg # 170):

The area is two yards wide by 20 yards long, there are 3 other doors in the same wall as the door you entered through, and two doors in the opposite wall at either end. Each of the doors on the same side as yours is barred and equipped with a bell.
Toward one end there is a barrel with a few stools around it, and on the barrelhead are a set of playing cards and a handfull of copper coins.

Inside the barrel (excellent search) is a removable panel, with a first aid kit and three vials... and a dark square bottle and three stacked leather cups.

The men have cheap shortswords, light scale armor, a couple of knives , three ordinary ST 12 crossbows and 34 bolts between 3 cheap quivers. The men have pouches with personal basics, one cleaning kit for a crossbow, and apparently all of their coin is on the barrelhead- $23

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
Espiri asks, "What do you all suppose is on the other side of the barred doors? More entrances like the one we came through?"

The elf walks up to one of the barred doorways and knocks on it with the hilt of his dagger. He notes the others finding random loot and goes to help divvy it up, but waits to hear if anything knocks back on the other side of the door.

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
"Grab the coins. We can backtrack to strip the bodies after we find and deal with whoever is in charge." Valdnur says, "No sense in loading ourselves down when there may still be some fighting to do."

He takes a moment to reload a bolt into the chamber of each pistol crossbow, then stands ready with Espiri to take care of the next room.

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
In reply to Valdnur Silverheart (msg # 173):

Nothing knocks back from the other side of the barred door. You do note that there are metal pipes running accross the ceiling, from the wall with the two doors, obver to the wall with the four doors, just like the one you saw heading up to the false wall in the fireplace above.

Each of the barred doors has a bell next to it, with a wire heading up from the bell to run along the pipe out of site. Each doot has a wire attached to its corner that leads up to the ceiling and accross to the far wall, as if the bells by the door led upstairs and the doors individually rang bells elsewhere.

Espiri glances at the pipes and strings and comments, "Well, this looks like a fun way to send a message throughout a lair. Shall we go greet whoever is on the receiving end? Who wants to pick a door?"

Infernal flame might be enough to do it, although a crowbar would probably work too.

Re: At a back table in the guildhall
after a moment of thought Arthur decides it would be easier to just use brute force.

"Hey Khozapukt, break those pipes so we can stuff something in them to block the smoke escaping."

Fewmets are dragon dung, typically used in alchemical furnaces for a slow steady burn, also a source of saltpeter.

"It looks like smoke to me, who cares what kind. Lets plug the holes and make them come to us to check it out. Khoza take the shirts from these fine corpses and stuff them in the open pipes to block the smoke."

Reluctantly, the demon rips the clothes off the corpses and stuffs them in the pipes.
