Kvothe moves 30 feet down a smooth cut stone hallway 10 feet wide and 10 feet high, his form casting no shadows due to his Elven Cloak. After 30 feet the hall opens into a larger room. The room is 50 feet wide with 20 foot high ceilings, all carved from the rock. The most dominating feature is a 30 foot wide pool of what again looks like blood running the length of the room. Kvothe’s vision can barley make out the far wall in the dim light 70 feet away.
To Kvothe’s left and right are alcoves with odd humanoid form statues in them. He carefully investigates. The statues have the body of a man but with 6 arms growing from his shoulders and torso. His head is a large bulb with three evenly spaced elongated eyes.
Kvothe hears a sound, the heavy bronze door opening, he ducks behind a statue pulls his cloak tight and waits. Long minutes go by, he thinks he hears a scraping sound, but the faint gurgling of the blood stream continues.
Suddenly there is an iron warrior in front of him, just exiting the passage he came in by. He remains hidden, as the warrior pivots left and right, then slowly turns around and walks back outside. It moves much faster than the ones he encountered at the temple, but still very slowly about half the speed at which a human would normally move.
Kvothe follows it outside and watches as it steps between the two rock pillars, there is a flash of red light and it is gone. Kvothes thinks it is time to tell the others about his find and tries the sending stones to contact them. Kvothe climbs down so he can meet them on the ground.
In several minutes the whole gang arrives. Storm smells of smoke, and Turok of urine. Kvothe lets them know about his findings and the group feel this is the area they want to investigate next. Using the rope of climbing and Kvothe’s Elven cloak, everyone is safely and stealth-fully up to the ledge and into the cave mouth, near the two red crystalline columns
