Uube walks over to the rock pile and finds two nice choices and picks them up, one in each hand.
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Alth tried to get Uube's attention and made a gesture to hopefully communicate "What the hell are you doing?!"

Nalbin too immediately began donning his armor after he was awoken, once that was completed he began assisting in clearing any evidence of their presence, including the fire-pit he created earlier.

Uuber seems Alith's motions and stares dumbfunded for a few moments, then as if offering a simple excuse, "Fangs hurt".

The sounds of digging and the inane chatter grew louder. It would not be long before the diggers broke through the barrier.

After donning his armor, James drew his longsword and shield.

"Fangs? Do you guys know what's coming through?" James whispered as he moved near the rocks and prepared for combat.

"It's either goblins or kobolds.  Both can have nasty teeth." Alth whispered, rocking back and forth on his feet as if undecided about something.

At last the miners broke through, and the trio of kobolds seemed very surprised to find that the cavern was not empty. They stared wide-eyed at the group of adventurers they had come upon.

Uube holds a rock overhead wondering if he should throw or wait. The squishes seem to have this idea that in civilized society, manslaughter without an excuse is murder, but with one you're a hero. So which is it?

Alth glowered at the kobolds, an arrow knocked in his bow and ready to fire.  "I recommend surrendering quietly unless you'd like your tunnel collapsed on you by the big orange guy.  Or arrows through your heads by me."

"Or yeh heads chopped off by Dolard" Said the dwarf quickly, continuing Alth's list in an attempt to intimidate the kobolds while referring to his named Katana.

<We still have the advantage of surprise on our side. That advantage must be maintained if we are to emerge victorious.>

"If I were you, I'd do as my companions suggest." growled James.

The three kobolds dropped their pickaxes and raised their hands above their heads in a clear indication of surrender. A fourth kobold tumbled clumsily out of the small tunnel and smiled up at the smallest of the group. The little group's leader growled irritably down at the prone kobold, shaking its head in disgust.

"Kipper wonder why we even bring a spud like youse along, Aki," the small kobold grumbled. "Youse never in sync with rest of group."

The kobolds' chatter amused Alth a bit, but he wasn't going to smile in front of them.  "Good choice.  Now, move against the wall and away from the tunnel.  We'll be plugging it up for a bit."  At this point Alth gave Uube a meaningful look to imply he'd be the one to plug up the tunnel since he was the most capable.

Once the kobolds are situated Alth moves to question them.  "First, who or what is your employer?  I don't expect you to tunnel without a bit of pay behind it."

The four kobolds sat down against the wall, Kipper looking quite irritated with the whole situation.

"I told youse that we should'a brought the weapons," the largest of the kobolds muttered to Kipper.

"Shut your noise pipe, Malachite," Kipper snapped irritably.

"Knew it was bad idea for female kobold to be in charge," the third kobold snickered.

"Leave Kipper alone, Bass," Aki whined.

"I be in charge because I'm smarter than you spuds," Kipper said as she firmly whacked Aki and Bass on their heads with the flats of her palms. "I also be smart enough to not tell tall folk our business."

Still holding the rocks, "But what if it's our business?"

"Hey Kipper," Bass said in a low tone, "think these tall ones be the boss lady's friends?"

Kipper folded her arms over her chest cynically. "Maybe. What's the password, tall folk?"

Alth got an idea and prayed it would work for them.  He took a little bit and mentally activated his Ghost Sound spell-like ability to create the loud voice of a harassed-sounding woman that seemed to come from the ceiling, though somewhat distorted and with an echo that he hoped would give the feel of being magically created by their boss and be able to cover up the genericness of it.  He pricked his ears as the voice started talking, then quickly turned around and aimed his bow towards the ceiling.

"Enough!  Kipper, you are to tell my associates what they want to know.  Include the password with it.  I have been too busy to contact them with further details until now and think it best to make sure you fill them in as a sort of test.  Do not disappoint me." And the voice trailed off.
