Jasper and Lazlo get into a deep conversation about the merits of animal husbandry. Hugo watches on with a half confused, but half "I'm smarter than them" look on his face.
Seelah taps on her armor a few times, and realizes that each plate makes a distinct sound. After a few minutes, she begins pounding out a tune that resembles Handel's Messiah.
Eolowyn is initially interested in relaxing in the cave, but quickly gets bored and decides to go to the other room.
This long chamber has four alcoves along the western wall. The outer two contain visible statues, and the center two are recessed. Corridors stand opposite the northern and southern statues.
Eolowyn thinks to herself If there is a trap somewhere in this place, it is in here and carefully locates one. Feeling proud she continues strutting into the second trap that blows her backwards with fire.
Off in the distance, you hear Lirianne chuckling. Don't fret, she isn't chuckling because Eolowyn just got slightly crisped, but because the figured out a way to put in a alchemical cartridge to her gun without a bullet. When she pulls the trigger, a nice gust of wind goes in her face. She made a neat fan.
Hugo walks back to the laboratory, and trips on a wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow crashes to the floor and breaks. Somehow, Hugo wedges one of the giant wheels between his leg, and begins to traverse the area while balancing on the single wheel. This makes the evil alchemist wake up for just an instance and crack a slight grin, then he falls over, limp with the death.
Everyone safely makes it out the dungeon, and Jasper makes Hugo stay on the wheel, all the way back to the village of Thornkeep.
