The central area between what you suspect to be sod covered pits, is also sodded.

Masugatan follows closely.  I was talking to myself, by the way.

You can clearly make out three three yard-by-three yard square areas where the sod has been cut and relayed. The outer two have slight dips in the center, the central area seems well supported, and the grass on it seems less dried out.

Darius kept walking behind Reanna. "I'll follow in your footsteps," he said.

Stop, hide, scan the area for trouble. If no-one is visible, circle around the central area, checking for traps and ambushes.

Dne climbs several meters up and surveys the area.  Do things look different from up here?

"So, wot's yer story Balar? 'Oo are yer, anyways? Were ye part 'o the guild, once upon 'o spell?" Aegis asked the wounded brigand leader, as he turned the spit, bottle close at hand...

No further traps, threats or concealed bowmen are visible, the way seems to be clear.

"I still hold a membership, for legal purposes. I started out as a mercenary, fought in the Pequenaud succession, and another couple of inter baronic conflicts further south. Then I did some caravan guarding befor becoming a road agent.
I also own the Whistling Wench and some other real property. This gig has been one of the best I have ever had, getting paid on both ends."

"So wot do ye reckon, the merchant's guild'll do with yer, if we bring ye to 'em? The gallows, is it?"
Aegis offers the man, the bottle.

Reanna will then proceed with clearing the pit traps, very cautiously checking the contents first before removing the covers.

"Depends on who you turn me in to. If it is a friend, you get a reward, and I disappear. You turn me in to someone else, you get a reward, and I have enough evidence to save me from the rope. I don't die unless one of you do it."

The two side pits about four yards deep have barely balanced pit wickerwork covers under the sod, a number of bodies full of crossbow bolts are in them. The area between them, about 4 yds square looks more solid.

"Well, If'n anyone in our group was ta kill ye, It'd likely be me. But I'm probably the best friend ye have, fer now, which is sayin' alot... But wot about yer local assets and real property, if'n you'se had to bugger off?"
The merc grinned, as he turned the spit.

Darius looked down into the pit. "Seems like a waste," he said, then turned to Reanna. "After you."

"I have the succession of all that legally sorted. Didn't want folks killing eachother for a share of the tavern. Only the heir knows who would get it in case of their death, to keep it from being untimely. You get me out of this, I'll  see to it you get taken care of in perpetuity."
