Back outside the lighthouse the party decides to follow the blood trail they noticed earlier that leads off to the north. Following broken branches and blood smears the party comes across 2 vents in the ground emanating light smoke, they seem to be chimneys and there is a fire burning somewhere below he ground. The party plugs the holes hoping to drive whoever out….
Apook Summons a Hawk and scouts the cliff and surroundings, there is a building ahead and the party moves toward it.
They reach a low stone wall house, overgrown with weeds and barely visible. Dogs are heard barking inside. The druids attempt to communicate with the dogs, but all they get back is HUNGER and EAT YOU!
A Food trail is led away from the house and the door opened, two mongrel coyote sized dogs go straight for the food and the party jumps into the house slamming the door behind.
The interior of the home shows traffic and dog poop. There are a few gnawed bones but little else. There has been lots of movement throng the home but the only thing in here is a fireplace and a piss soaked rug. After investigation the rug is over a trap door.
Under the trap door a rough hewn cave possibly carved by water run off leads down and away, the faint smell of salt and sea air rushes out There are sloping stone steps rough carved from the rock passage leading downward.
Passage turns toward Wooly bay and you can see and opening. Vines hang over the entrance and sway in the Bay Breeze. Vines are hemp rope and look obviously placed to hide cave. There is a wooden door that basically fits the cavemouth. It swings inward and is not in place The outside is painted grey and brown like the cliff face.
Through the vines there is a rock ledge that slopes downward. More rough hewn steps are carved into the ledge but the ledge looks natural. There is a ledge above it that would obscure it if anyone looked over cliff. Along the ledge more “vines” are tied….light smoke is rolling out from behind the vines…….
