Male dwarves are too manly to be seen in the vicinity of females and elves, especially elves. Of course they don't like their own females, what did you expect? A proper male dwarf is gay. Manly and gay!

Watcher path... Because it sounds like a broken security camera. Take advantage!

So. Orcs and Goblins are the same?

Map

>Flowers

You walk down a passageway of elegant stone-work, unsure if this is indeed the corridor indicated on Bror's map. The design on the walls changes every so often, with a smooth vertical band of polished stone dividing the different patterns. You see examples of axe head and diamond designs produced in dozens of different colors and types of stone.

Ultimately you come to another junction. "Confound it!" exclaims Bain. You enter under an arch set with two-foot high niches within which are alabaster shards, the remains of statues or vases perhaps.

The junction forms the connection for three corridors. The arch over one passage is carved to look like a grapevine and has been set with purple light-stones. Behind you is the arch with the niches and alabaster shards. The third tunnel is unremarkable, having no decorative arch.

Choose!
-Grapevine
-Alabaster
-Unadorned tunnel

Alabaster.

The unadorned one creeps me out.

Have to go with the unadorned.

The dwarves would want you not to pick that one because they are tricky little devils and want you to pick the pretty ones.

The Echo of Grackle votes to turn back, for he is a unabashed coward.

Grapevine.

Where there's grapes, there's wine.

Thanks for the help, Shroombie.

Who will be the one to break the tie and determine this undoubtedly crucial step on the journey through Moria?

The unadorned way. The pleasures and riches will threw us off the Way of Truth.

Turn back. The Will isn't going to be anywhere near orc carved tunnels.

Continue.

Only cowards and traitors admit defeat. Real men (and dwarves) soldier on.

Aargh, this is a thing! A thing that didn't stop being a thing but I forgot about! It's back now!

>Turn back!

You return to the previous junction.

Three archways lead away from the intersection. In one are set two niches, each holding shards of alabaster. This is the passage by which you first arrived at the junction. Another passage is unadorned and leads into a roughly carved orc tunnel, from which you have just emerged. The third path is decorated with a grapevine motif set with purple light-stones.

Choose!
-Grapevine (unexplored)
-Alabaster (back to Watcher-in-Stone intersection)
-Unadorned (back to orc-tunnels)

Map

>Grapevine

After passing under the arch, you walk on for some distance along a gently curving and smooth-walled tunnel. Beyond a crystal-veined archway, you come to another corridor junction.

Here, three pathways intersect. The first, from which you have just emerged, displays a broken crystal vein originally scultped to resemble leaves floating down from a tree in autumn, each decorated with tiny red, orange and yellow stones.

The second pathway is entered through an archway with axe-head ornamented stonework. The chipped stones were fitted together so expertly that they require no mortar. Inside the entrance to the third stands the shattered remains of a deep stone basin filled with clear, cold spring-water. "Do not drink of it," warns Bain. "While orcs remain in Moria, all is foul and putrid."

Choose!
-Return through the crystal arch
-Take the axe-head corridor
-Take the basin corridor

Axe Head. No mortar and expert fitted stones makes me think of the Inka, and they were pretty cool fellows.
