the thief quietly pulls the door open wide. Beyond is a strange set of stairs;
the steps have no risers. and there are no
 walls on either side. The speps look like they are floating in dark ess. the mages can see dim outlines of weak light on the edges of the steps...

"Ok, but I suspect there will be a door at the top that will need to be checked and opened."

Amelia moves up with the group, position unimportant compared to actually keeping moving.

at the top of the steps, you see a platform at least 6 yards accross (as far as your light holds up, with a pair of indistinct shapes at the far periphery of you range of vision.

The Adept pushes to the fore as best he can, so as to be able to protect those leading.

the shapes make it easier by approaching.

The size of men, with massively broad shoulders and thick arms carrying knobbed clubs, they have tiny waists and neckless broad heads with wide mouths full of shark teeth and blank white eyes.

"Safwen, do they mean us harm?" aks Amelia. "Are they intruders?" She sounds indignant; they might have spoilt any clothing that she could try on.
