    Ted sighs, looking to Mao. Look I don't wanna anymore than you do.. But we're suppose to go down there right?"

    "Rereow.. "

    "Of course I know they don't know how long it takes fur to dry. Look at them, they just change their clothing and thats that. Course they haven't thought about the water after they get out. After all The second most common accident is slipping on something you spilled. Besides they want to touch what is probably an obviously death trap skull with all of us in the room. Nothing could go wrong with that!"

    "Meow.."

    "Well do you want to try to fight the frost giants?"

    "Mew"

    As with Tara, when the party swims the 100 feet through the cold (cold!) water you will notice a set of metal bars in the forward wall that covers a narrow shaft leading straight down.

    You swim up through the hole in the ceiling and quickly breach the surface, and are able to enter the 'safe' room. It is about 20' by 50'. On the opposite end is a hole much like the one you emerged through, leading back down into the cold water, and in the center of the room stands a pedestal with a grinning skull with green gemstone eyes. There are no other lights here, but Tara's everburning torch does provide some illumination. If that torch remains the only light source however, its location would be pretty significant for your abilities to search the room, monitor the two holes and possibly engage in combat.

    Tara sniffs the air, letting the sneakier and more nimble human do any investigations they want to before proceeding. If there was any danger in here, she expected some lingering scent of blood, ash, or some other sign of death, especially with the stagnant air.

    I get up out of the water. It's freezing, but I barely feel that any more. Ugh.

    "Mm, what's with this skull?" I plod over to it, still dripping, and take a look around it to see if it's trapped.

    The skull does not budge. It seems to be attached to the pedestal. However, it does feels like bone, so you could presumably break it if you applied more force.

    The skull soon comes loose. Looking at it from below, it quickly becomes clear that the gem stones were attached to some sort of mechanism inside the pedestal.

    The skull looks like that of an adult human. There are no signs of injury on it.

    The green gem stones seem to be of incredibly high quality. If there is no trickery you have failed to see through, these stones will easily sell for more than 10,000 gold each, although you may have to be patient or put in some effort to find a buyer who will pay fair price.

    "Hey sneaky one, catch!" Tara says, tossing one of the gems to (you never use your name and I am too lazy to look at your sheet). She gives a look to the skull. "Well Yorik, if you plan to do us harm, do it now or forever rest in peace," she says, setting the skull back in its resting place. "Unless you want to ask the skull its life story, let's get moving. We're already the lowest rank out of the other isekaied people, I'd hate for us to prove them right."

    I catch the gem. "It's Micah, not "Sneaky one," but cheers for the gem." Not that I was sure what I'd buy with whatever money I could get off it, but that was a problem for later. "And hey, I don't mind being the "Lowest rank." It means they give us easy stuff like this to deal with." Still, I follow Tara. No sense wasting time.

    Tara dives in, and some of the others follow. It starts out a mirror to the other side - a dive straight down, then behind you is a flat wall with a small shaft leading down into darkness. There are no bars on this one, however. A Medium creature could probably just barely squeeze down, though there wouldn't be room to turn around, or even really to move your arms or have your lungs full.

    It would be pitch black in the main tunnel as well but for Tara's everburning torch. Even that however can only illuminate some 40 feet out into the corridor.

    Tara gives a look to the tight spot. She probably could make it, but coming this far only to drown in a hole seemed rather unappealing. The girl signs to the others that she planned to ascend, and swims to the surface to get a breath, taking out the sand again and willing it into the shape of a rope, wrapping it around her everburning torch before taking in more air and diving down.

    When she returns, Tara lowers the wrapped torch down into the tunnel, willing the rope to thin a little bit more and stretch itself further down the shaft.

    Tara begins to lower her torch down the shaft. At first she hears little clunks as it softly hits the walls, going back and forth as she lowers it, but slowly the torch goes further and further down the shaft, and soon the soft sound doesn't carry all the way back up. She can still see the light, however.

    And then... it hits something. Because it is so bright by the torch, you can see clearly what bumped into it. It looks like the corpse of a human, swimming slowly up from below. It is squeezing up the shaft.

    No sooner does she see the thing, however, than it becomes almost impossible to hold her breath. She feels almost overwhelmed, but manages to keep from breathing in water - for now.

    That thing is maybe 30 feet below you, and it is coming up toward you. You can only assume that it is what made you almost start drowning.

    Tara yanks the rope back up as fast as possible while swimming away as quickly as she can. Just as with the giants before, her mind flashes to images of sailors suddenly grasping at their mouths, eyes going red as their lungs gasp for air that is already in them. She wasn't an effective fighter down here in the water, and she would be all the less effective blind and drowning.

    Nothing emerges from the water. The party may act. Block initiative would normally split the party up into blocks, but the enemy rolled the highest Initiative somehow, so the next 'block' is the whole party. Everyone may act in any order.
