Dekion picks up the shield and takes a better look at it. He tells the others about the false step and suggests we follow the path to the left.

"So long as we make sure this side doesn't have the same problem left is fine."

I'll check the left side's fourth step, then continue on if it looks safe

The left stairs are safe and Sarian ascends to a small landing where both sets of stairs meet. A simple passage leads onwards. After waiting for the others to catch up he advances up the tunnel which soon turns sharply to the right. Up ahead the tunnel soon takes a turn to the left and at this new corner the corpses of two orcish guards lie on the floor brutaly hacked apart. Their blood is nearly dry but still has an oddly moist look to it as if their deaths have been recent.

Because the bodies are at the corner it'd be hard to stand and go through their pockets without being noticed by anyone just around the corner).

"Go ahead and check them if you want to Sarian, I will stand guard. We don't need anyone trying to hack you apart too." Dekion looks around to see if he notices anything or one.

What about the shield?

It's a medium steel shield.

If it fits I'll put it in my pack. If not I will strap it to it. I will continue to use my magical shield.

Stormy waits behind Dekion, protecting Ellion, whilst Sarian searches the dead orcs.

Reaching the corner Sarian stoops and performs a quick search of the orcs. One is wearing a necklace of teeth but aside from that they bear nothing interesting or particularly useful.

Looking up he spies a large man standing at a t junction with his back turned to him, arms folded and head bowed in thought. Slowly Throm the barbarian turns to see who has disturbed his pondering. He raises his axe warily but does not threaten outright.

"Wait, spare us the hastle of a fight!" I say, raising one hand palm facing the barabarian. "Myself and three of the other contestants have formed an aliance, we could work together, else we all face the same fate as your friend."

Lowering his head ever so slightly the barbarian growls "Throm is my name. There are two paths here. I am deciding which way to you. You may walk with me if you wish."

"Well met Throm." Dekion advances (cautiously) toward Throm. "Which way do you think is best?"

As the barbarian's sees Dekion his eyes narrow. "I see you have the shield," he says.

"You left this behind? You can have it back if you like. I have made a policy of picking up anything that may be of use that we find."

"Bah!" scoffs the barbarian, "I have no use for that thing. It was by a man of bone sticking out of the glass wall. As I stooped to grasp it a most horrible creature emerged from behind the wall of glass and sought to drag me through."

"But Throm is no fool," he continues, "I took the shield away so it could no longer lure fools to their doom."

"Then thank you for your help Throm. It had no trick so it came straight out and we killed it." Dekion looks down the path to the left.
