To the east, you peek in and no one is inside. This storage room contains a half-dozen stirrup vases and scores of stoppered clay flasks. The distinct odor of tar hangs heavily in the air.
To the door to the west you peek in and no one is there This small cellar contains several barrels and hundreds of glass bottles on shelving to the south. The air is thick with the smell of vinegar.
Let me know if you want to check out either or both of the rooms more in depth or keep moving along. probably 3+ minutes so far plua whatever extra time you decide to check out the rooms, if any.
The two rooms have been revealed on the map.
He heads north, into the large room and looks around for anything that seems out of place, starting to work his way around toward the northern passage (though stopping to look down the western hall).
Moving the the north side of the dome reveals six identical cells each closed by a metal gate. The growl of a large feline breaks the silence, followed by several porcine grunts.
These cells are filled with animals that detect your presence, however it doesn't seem to be attracting any attention. There are 2 lions, a leopard, and 3 boars.
Past the cells appears to be an open hall that serves as a junction to other areas (much like the western hall that took you up to the arena.
Probably another 2 minutes or so checking out the various cells and peeking into the forge area. Lets say about 6 minutes have passed since you left the Coenoby.
He rushes past the animals, knowing they can sense him anyway, slowing at the hub back to a reasonable, quiet speed, then heads east.. Don't want to let the forge distract me yet... And I don't know what's in the northeast area yet.
