Just Morte.  Theres a lot of old skeleton remains, and in various places the compound has collapsed due to age.  You see evidence of traps everywhere though.

Morte picks up as many skeletons as she can safely carry and digs back to the party and kobolds to reports on her findings.


So I'm no mining specialist, but I say focus on the non-collapsed areas for now.

"Lots."

Morte does her best to explain the positioning of the traps she saw, using her skeletons to build a dungeon map on the floor with assorted debris.

OOC: Sorry, I thought Morte and the kobolds were hashing out the traps.

"How long is 'a while'?"

"Days.  That is some serious trap density.  Whoever did this were masters at trapmaking.  It's no wonder my people were enslaved to dig it up and disarm it.

"With excavation time added yes.  I'd say we could send the chikins but I think they could bluff their way through the traps through sheer force of hate."

"We haven't excavated much before you released us.  The other dig sites weren't trapped as bad as Mr. Henderson's...er, living quarters."

OOC: It's probably been six months + IRL time since we agreed to the mission, so I don't remember what we were doing down here. So far as I remember, we rescued kobolds, then we came back to look for stuff?

You were to rescue Kobolds and made a quickie side deal to check the place out so they could make it a new home for their people (ie kill any possible remaining guard monsters and keep what loot you could find)  You and Morte (I think) also have guns to pick up.

So, if it will take days to clear the traps here, I suppose we should move on to inspect a new area. We can always come back to guard them as they clear traps, if needed.

You get to the new dig, which is a gate to an underground facility much like the last one.  It is not lit,,, and there is a slightly stinky wind coming from it.
