Vinny is waiting for the group when they return and the whole of the party retreats to the tower. Now that the party possesses two ropes of climbing the stalactite is easily accessed.

The mansion has 4 rooms (6 if you count the small foyer and bathroom)
Foyer/Main Banquet hall (dining room) Huge table set for 8
