Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Zem speaks"look for the rangers marks, I believe the left passage returns us to the Mess Hall and the right to pantry and the main passage."


Last map we had was this from here viewtopic.php?p=25664#p25664
  Code:

```````````````````````````````````````````
```````````````````````````+-----------+```
```````````````````````````|```````````|```
````````````````````___---2+````Mess```+--`
``````````Dark---._/```````|`````H`````|```
```````Passage```1`````````+------F----+```
`````````````````|````````````````|````````
`````````````````x``````````````+-|-+``````
`````````````````x``````````````|`Z`|Kitchen
`````````Main``aKdL```````+-----+`A`|``````
```````Passage/````Wz-Gkf--`````|```+----``
``````````````````````````+---------+``````
````````````````````````````Pantry`````````


But I'm confused because the first map was this (below) clearly Mess Hall is the way out.

  Code:
`````````````````````````````````
``````````````````````+-`````````
``````````````````````\  Unknown`

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Leudigar nods in agreement. "I think you're right, Zem. Let's see if the others we left behind in the kitchen are still there."

"Yes, let's head for the kitchen." Freid leads the way to the kitchen through the mess hall.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

All roads lead to Rome. Does Fried turn left, or turn right?

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

That would left then by what we think we know. From Dark Passage left to Mess Hall then right to kitchen. My confusion is regarding the Mess Hall, are there 2 Mess Halls? Or does this Mess have the Bleakmas Tree?

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Freid turns left. That's what Zem said, and he's following the directions of the others.
I don't think this would be the Bleakmas Tree Hall. That is much further ahead...IIRC. I think this is the one where we killed the really obese Goblin/Hobgoblin.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

I think that must be it, there is more then 1 mess hall. I do know that beyond the Bleakmas Tree Mess Hall there was Barracks so if we find that Barracks (100ft long) then we are on track to to way out ,or at least the way we came in. We do not want to go into the Trap room where I fought the Bugbear.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Fried leads the way to the left, and soon comes into a small mess hall. There is no bleakmass tree, nor any ornaments of such here; only the piteous body of the hag which Fried ran through with his sword earlier in the day. There is a door about 40ft opposite the entry and, on the right hand wall, the top-bottom split door that you recall leads back into the kitchen...
What now?

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

"Through the split door, to the kitchen," Leudigar whispers, wondering if the others still remain there waiting for them...

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

"Right!"Freid whispers back and leads the way to the split door. He stops and checks to see if there is any light coming from that room. If the others are still there there should be...

If there is light he'll peek into the room to see who is there, if the room is dark he'll turn to the others and whisper, "No light is a bad sign. Be prepared for the worst."
Freid will cautiously enter the room after pushing the split door open with his shield.
