With Darius guarding, Reanna will finish disarming the traps and removing the crossbows, always having the loaded crossbows from all the previous traps disarmed near her.

Those of you with good noses can detect the faint smell of rot from the direction of some of the pits.

"Thank the gods my nose is blocked then...lets check what is in those pits...after we have finished checking the area for more trouble. Everyone who can use a crossbow, grab one."

"I'll mind the camp, and our injured Balar, and his shadow elf mistress. Besides, I'm cookin' our dinner. I need at least one extra pair 'o eyes, (preferably a perceptive pair 12+) to watch me back, while I'm doing both."
Aegis sits, in a vantage point where he can survey the prisoners, and mind the spit.
There's little fat on the venison, if there's no schmaltz or pork fat, Aegis will use ale, and what drippings collect in the pan, to baste the roasting meat.

"It's not death," Darius said, "but decay. Death does not smell. Still, looks like the traps were successful." He walked over to one of the pits.

The pit is covered by a layer of sod atop a light wickerwork.
Are you lifting the edge?

"Why don't we leave the lids on for now, while we ensure that there are no more dangers up above first. Just don't step on them...for those that need to be told."

She will mark them out with lines in the dirt.

"Well, be they persons.. We have a priest and a necromancer with us, so they'll be taken care 'o, either way, I reckon." Aegis uncouthly spits upon the ground, (away from the meat) to underscore his indifference.

Re: Stalking Balar
Darius left the pit undisturbed for now. "I can't just use any kind of dead body in the same way," he said. "The bandits - they're fresh, which makes them strong. Those down there don't smell fresh, which makes them second-rate for me. Besides," he smiled, "there are more elegant solutions than the undead."

Without looking, you have no way of telling who or what is in the pits. To approach the central area, you need to go between them.

Reanna after pointing out the traps and marking them, will go back to being stealthy and move towards the central area, crossbow ready and spare on back.
