The crawlspace opened into a rather boring hallway. Around the corner, however, awaited a swirling green gas at the foot of a set of stairs. A door taunted the adventurers, especially Abraxus, who was eager to brave the mysterious toxin and bash in that door. Dak and Gorstag discerned that the gas was indeed some sort of magical toxin, but could not detect any hint concerning its effects. Dak also noticed a mysterious secret door located just past the crawlspace. Sunny attempted to pick it open, but was repelled by a mysterious force field. Dak immediately went to work on dispelling the ward. With that done, Sunny popped the door open and revealed some more drab hallway. Thorir, Dak and Sunny decided to follow the alternative route, while Gorstag and Abraxus stayed focused on that damn gassy door.
