|GM - Emperor Dark Oni|
Taking the group towards the kitchen the halfling starts to oddly prep things for dinner. He takes and opens the back door leading out of the house, but shuts it quickly before walking over to the only other door and opening it revealing the pantry.
He spends a minute looking around before coming out with an armful of vegetables. He places them on the table and moves towards the fireplace that holds some pots and pans on the wall and floor. He grabs a large pot and drops it almost immediately.
"Darn snakes!" he yells stepping back from the pot.
The group sees a small black and red stripe snake wither out of the dropped pot and slither quickly towards a hole in the wall before disappearing. Rubbing his arms the halfling glares at the hole for a minute before going back over and picking up the pot and setting it near the table.
The oddity of his actions has you all wondering. Why didn't he know which door led to the pantry? Isn't Walthus some sort of snake-wrangler? Before you can say anything Walthus speaks up.
"Need to get some water. I'll be right back." the halfling then takes the empty pot and heads outside, leaving the group to themselves.
