The Grapple Forest
You travel down the right path some ways nothing sticking out until you come to a clearing where there are a number of tree stumps.  A large amount of copper coins are spread evenly about the clearing, a mound of vines in the middle of the clearing with a couple of pumpkins each about a foot wide rest in.

"Interesting. Offerings to the Great Pumpkin? Or a lure for the greedy? Perhaps some sort of puzzle...?"

Bob was audibly disappointed that there were no grapples to eat on the trees.  "Who lost coins?" he asks.

"Looks like a trap," Atak warns. "Let's circle all the way around this patch before we start digging in."

You think you can make out some white things within the pumpkin patch as you circle around, bones perhaps.  You're able to skirt the clearing to where the path continues without incident.

"Bones? Surely a trap. Perhaps we should throw a stick of lizard jerky in to see what catches it?"

Bob forgets for a moment that humans have bones.  "It is good to walk around." he offers.  "We keep looking for houses?" he suggests.

Angus nods. "Definitely not natural. If we weren't on a mission I'd like to study this pattern. But, as Bob suggests, we have some houses to find. Let's go around."
