The forest outside the cave wasn't much brighter that inside. The trees were rather large and their foliage made sure not much light made it to ground level.

There didn't seem to be any danger around. All you seem to sense are the normal forest animals you'd expect to be living around here.

Well, that was fine.  Manisha followed the lead of the kobolds as they foraged, looking out for possible threats.  Including things like bears.  Did this place have bears?  Manisha was fairly sure that she could take down a bear.

Manisha took a moment to look over the road more.  She knew it was going to be important one way or another; she might as well try to get a feel for it now, and see if she could figure out anything about the people who used it.  Or how much it was used at all...

That could be significant, especially if her hopes of establishing some kind of peaceful trade with the local human-types were going to see fruition.  She looked around the road a little more; if nothing else came up, she headed back to her kobolds.
