Kvothe has moved past and has crossed the bridge to the sarcophagus
The coffin is identical to the one in the lantern room, but it does not sit on a revolving dias
It also does not have the silver pins holding the lid in place.
It is of heavy marble and will take some good strength to remove the lid
Tiberious is moving toward the coffin and Tobold is looking at the other sets of remains. As Tobold looks over the scorched stone it looks as though there was an explosion, there are no remains of a container that may have held the explosive, so Tobold assumes it was magic
Tobold suggests to Tiberious they protect their ears from sound attacks, possibly with wax from a candle. He also tries throwing a small item like one of the rotted boots into the air column
Tiberius approaches the coffin. If nothing attacks him, he will strap his shield and axe to his back and open the coffin. Kvothe pulls out wax from his scribe’s stash and offers it to anyone.
