Tumbly slaps Biratlan on the back. "Ho! now that was something to see! But, I fear the lads back at camp will never believe this tale."

Re: [03] The Ziggurat

The Stegosaurs give a short gallop, looking nervously behind them now and then, before coming to a gradual stop about 60 or so yards away. They watch the company suspiciously for a minute more, but when it appears that no pursuit is forthcoming, they get back to their grazing...

What now?

Biratlan jerks a chin toward the structure. They'll respect us now. Let's get a move on. There's gold to be had and, more importantly, women and strong drink to be bought with it.

| Do we see any kind of entranceway into the ziggurat? |

| OK, strike that, I see where you mentioned it: "The near-face of it appears to have long since collapsed leaving a wide, daunting breach--and entry--to its dark interior..." |

Vergas once again kisses his cross and exclaims "The Lady favors us!" before cautiously walking up to join the rest of the group at the entrance to the strange structure.

Sullivus follows Vergas and rejoins the group at the ziggurat.

Shall we get into formation and examine the entrance? , asks Magnus.

Arcus will prod around the entrance with his spear, searching for trip wires, pit coverings, or other traps.

Re: [03] The Ziggurat

Vergas also takes a look at the entrance and tries to get a glimpse of whatever lies beyond. His goal is to see whether two men can walk next to each other or not.

If they can, he'll say "Alright, let's stick our plan, Arcus and Magnus in front, then Tumbly and Potts, then Sullivus, then Birtalan and myself. Does everyone agree?"

If, on the other hand, it looks like a single-file approach is called for, Vergas will "reorder" things; in that case he'll say "Looks like we can only go one at a time. Tumbly should go first, followed by Magnus and then Arcus; this way at least two of us can see ahead clearly. Then Potts, then Sullivus, then myself. Brother Britalan, guarding the rear will once again fall to the two of us, but mostly you. Does everone agree?"

In either case (single-file or not), Vergas will end with "Brother Magnus, can you carry a torch? Sullivus has his lantern, but it might be good to have two light sources in this dank ruin."
