Out in the passage way Soval maintains his dour vigil.

He fancies that he can make out the shadowly bulk of another beacon suspended from the ceiling in the dimness ahead. These Dwarves must have good eye-sight indeed.

He hears the occasional pang echoed up from the vast darkness beneath. Perhaps a rock falling? Perhaps a hammer beating? Impossible to say... but Soval feels certain that the present company are not the only feet treading in Moria tonight...

A cursory inspection reveals a haphazard mixture of coin, nail, chain-link, hob, wire, rivets and such. It would take a time to sift through the lot of it with any care, and perhaps for only a few score coins.

Lomeluin reaches for a single coin, blows the ages of dust off it, and soon decides it is no thing of the Dwarfs. It must surely be of Man-make, for it looks to be a coin of Dunland.

Norin leads the company back into the main passage, where Soval awaits, and prepares to continue.

The light of yonder beacon does not press much farther into the dark passage ahead... but Norin and Sili (and also the Elves) can see that there is another such beacon ahead.

Lmluin drops the coin with a dismissive snort and accompanies the others back into the main passage.

On seeing the beacon ahead he wonders aloud; "Can we spare the oil to light this also?"

"Yes Lmluin it would be nice to light an other beacon, but I fear will will run out of oil before we get very far. Now if we had a mining cart maybe we could put a beacon in it and push it to light the way", suggests Lady ‰ohild.

‰ohild states, "Let us finish up and continue on and see what lies ahead!"
" Largo and Baraglin my brave hobbits, your help has been valuable so far, please keep a look out around us as we travel so we are not surprised by any foul beast. Rest assured we will quickly deal with any such creatures."

The company has oil enough to this beacon and a few more perhaps... but their supplies are not without limit.

Eohild's council is most thoughtful. But whereto should one of these mining cars be sought?

There were in fact various old metal boxes and tins among the Trolls' hoard...

Lmluin shifts restlessly. "I say move on," he counsels; "Let us know a little more of these halls. We have light enough for now."

To Norin and Sili; "Lead on, sons of Durin."
