Neutral Building

Is there a certified stalemate resolution associate in the building?

If you remember the decision you made the first time you played this, Archimedes, then we could count that as a tiebreaker.

Map

Arbitration time!!!

Hurrah!

>Axehead

Passing under archways decorated with typically well-constructed, axe-head stonework which has withstood centuries of neglect, you enter a corridor illuminated by small, hidden light-stones.

After rounding a gentle curve, you come upon another upturned and smashed Wather-in-Stone, this one carved from onyx. The Watcher once took the form of a great bird, its wings outstretched as if ready to take flight. You find small pieces of the bird's onyx feathers, but the eyes - probably once set with beryls as Bain notes - are empty. You do not spend much time examining the Watcher because you have reached yet another branching of corridors. This time, three tunnels extend before you.

The corridor to the southeast is partially blocked by a fallen portcullis, but the metal gate is bent, and there is room to squeeze through.

The corridor to the northeast has four steps leading up into the darkness. The steps are carved with runes which appear to be simply decorative.

The east passage was at some time blocked by a huge boulder dropped from a trap above, but a space has been cleared away around it. The passage is crudely carved, surely "the work of orcs," as Bain derisively notes.

Choose! Dammit, Choose!
-East
-Southeast
-Northeast

Northeast. Runes are cool.

Map

>Northeast

You come to an arching stone bridge over a broad, dark chasm with no discernable bottom. You consider tossing a small rock in to see if you can hear it land, but that has started trouble in the past and you are not interested in making the same mistake.

You study your map, which shows a bridge, but you have no way of knowing if this is the same one. "Why did the dwarves of Moria build their bridges without railings?" you ask, not expecting a reply.

"Answer me this first," says Bain. "Do you walk with your feet or your hands?" You must admit the dwarf makes a certain sense, after his own fashion. "Before we cross, let us be certain that no dwarvish or orcish stone-trap awaits."

After minutes of searching, you locate a trap mechanism. Under Bain's watchful eye, you try to disarm it. Soon, the sound of sliding metal can be heard; you believe that the disarming has been successful. You carefully walk across the bridge, making sure not to look down into the depths of the chasm. Relieved, you and Bain arrive safely on the other side and proceed into the next tunnel.

As in so many other passages, you have no indication of where you are or even if you now stand in an area shown on the map. You wish Bror, son of Bram, had not given you such an old and inaccurate rendering. Traveling in a northerly direction, you and Bain continue down the tunnel.

Off the main passageway, a cave opens to your left. It looks forbiddingly dark; no light-stones illuminate the interior, though you guess it is fairly large.

"What say you to this, dwarf?" you ask. "Again it is not shown on this... your family's map."

"The map shows a corridor and that is what we must follow. Agreed?"

Choose!
-Enter the cave
-Follow the corridor

Map

>Corridor

Here the passage slopes downward, taking you north. You check your map, but it does not indicate gradients. After traveling for some time, you come to an alcove set into the side of the tunnel. The disturbed stonework suggests an intricate pattern of diamond shapes. Within the alcove rests an overturned stone bench engraved with the scene of a forest full with leaves and blossoms. Beside the alcove lies a cracked basin shaped like cupped hands, but empty of water. The spring which emptied into it is now just a dry crack in the wall. Finished with your examination, Bain urges you on. "I am sure that we are in the main corridor indicated by the map. Let us hurry!"

Unexpectedly, a room now opens off the corridor. The portal's arch is carved to resemble two trees; their uppermost branches meet out of arm's reach overhead. Tattered remnants of a leather curtain have fallen across the doorway. You cannot see inside.

Choose!
-Enter the room
-Continue up the corridor

If we can't see it, it's probably a trap.


-Continue up the corridor
