The stone uncurls into a foot high stone statue that is armed with a small scythe.  It turns away from you, and starts cutting the grass,  one strand at a time.

He checks the tracks of this little fellow to verify that they are what he has been following... then relay's his findings...
Not magic entry after all...

You note that there are now half a dozen.of these things in the clearing, all trimming the grass in unison.

I have to say, those grass cutters are a brilliant idea.

Haveron stands by the door, waiting patiently to find out if he should bash away, wait on magic, or something else.  Offhand, he mentions "You know, if they were just a little bigger, one of those things would make a decent battering ram."

These are golems, and given the size, probably only as expensive to make for the half dozen as to make a man sized one. Larger ones would make excellent battering rams

Unless a golem was made to follow instructions from someone with a token or magical seal, they only obey the i structions of their creator... unless the spell independence was involved in the creation, which leads to free willed  golems... otherwise profoundly involved magics might be engaged, but would be contested by the terms of the enchantment.

"Whatever their creator instructed them they will do, and there is not much we can do about that except killing them. You would be better off using a rock for a bettering ram."

Re: Near Al Menir
If there is one thing Haveron is known for, it's patience.  He watches, thoughtfully, as the rest of the group asks questions.  Now that they were thinking about the height of the walls, he looks up and considers the possibility that they could get someone in a window or over the wall.

OOC  Any windows within reach, in addition to the question about the wall height...?

Shroud has 20 yards of 3/8 rope and a grapnel hook. if someone else is also carrying some 3/8 rope he can tie them together. Knot tying skill FTW.

Gareth has 50 yds of cord, with a capacity of 90 lbs, perhaps 180 lbs if doubled. He weighs just 90 lbs with his shield but no Jo or pack...
