"Sir Vesh, would you be so kind as to keep a watch the corridor both ways while we investigate these rooms? I suspect your magic could stop or at least slow any approaching enemies.
"Edgar, you're with me!"
With that, the elf-warrior & his torch-bearer proceed approximately thirty feet west & stand on the threshold of the white-padded-wall room.
If the door has closed in the interim, Wiglaff opens it.
Wiglaff will spend a full turn here (while the dwarfs are in the goblins' room).
He does a careful, patient inspection of the room, the floor, ceiling, walls, first visually, and then, if he sees nothing untoward, he'll move across to stand before the chest.
He looks for: unusual holes in the surface of the chest, or of the lock; strange wires or lines; discolorations or growths.
Once the visual inspection is done, he'll stand to one side (and gesture for Edgar to do the same) and lift the chest slightly from one end, if possible, trying to ascertain whether it might be attached to the floor.
As long as he finds nothing strange in the inspection, Wiglaff will then bash the rusty padlock with the butt of his battle-ax!
