Scattered throughout the area are 600sp value raw nuggets, weighing 30lbs, enough to fill 1 large sack.
Dame Simonetta is intrigued by the mysterious corpse. First of all, this one is truly dead (for a change of pace), not reanimated with undead energy! Second, it is totally skeletalized and appears to be quite ancient. Third, she's not convinced it's a Hobbet!
The skeleton is substantially smaller than a human's. That is to say, in life this person would have been dwarfed in stature by an adult human. But they would have stood a bit taller than most Hobbets, and stockier of frame than even a big guy like Tet.
The skeleton's armor is nothing like Hobbet-style armor: It is made from bronze plates riveted to leather. The leather has mostly rotted away, leaving little dangling bronze bits. The suit consists of helmet, breastplate, and greaves. The helmet is caved in and the skull is smashed, suggesting the cause of death.
Dame Simonetta rolls the skeleton over to get a better look at its front. The bone structure of the skull is suggestive of a wide, strong, rugged face. Despite the corpse's advanced decay, the facial hair is fully intact. The waist-length beard is intricately braided and tied with leather ribbons. The beard is in striking contrast to the feminine curves of the armor. Never has Simonetta met a dame who would be capable of filling out this breastplate! The druid Ursa, for example, is a curvy woman, gives good hugs, but she would look like a waif next to whatever bearded mystery warrior this armor was designed for.
The skeleton isn't carrying a shield, or any weapons, and if they had a backpack, it's long gone. But Dame Simonetta does find a small pouch on the skeleton's belt, and in the pouch, 2 glass potion vials (identical in appearance).
Peeking out from under the beard is a steel owl medallion. The owl's wings are outstretched, and its eyes are piercing and intense. The medallion is engraved with unfamiliar runes. The metal is untarnished and the craftsmanship is superior. The medallion is probably worth 400gp just as a jewelry item, notwithstanding the runes.
OOC: As always, you may attempt a Mythos check to understand the runes. I'll keep prompting you so long as you are on the 1st dungeon level. Once you get to the 2nd level and below, no more hints from the DM!
The party thoroughly searches through the rubble, but nothing else of value is found.
