    If within 30ft, Aubree will move, use his bonus action to activate his hexblade's curse and then attack with his staff two handed.
    Attack roll [roll0]
    Damage [roll]1d8+7[/rolll]

    If further than 30ft away Aubree will move so that he is 30ft distant, activate his hexblade's curse and then fire his eldritch blast.
    Attack roll - as above.
    Damage - [roll1]
    You can pick where in the room you want to start but most people are probably upper right corner.

    The ogre swings his mighty club at Val, his ears still ringing from the vicious mockery, just misses the fighter.

    Everyone who needs to attack can, every one who has attacked can as well. Except Melody who was the last to attack.

    As the others moved to engage the ogre she choose to follow the request of Old Sid and located the last keg to turn the tap three times to the right - she wasn't sure they could take on an ogre but she trusted Old Sid not to have trapped them in a situation they had no way out of.

    The keg swings open and in the back is an opening and a smooth sided ramp leading down.

    Heather

    She called out "we have a way out - I think we should take it", with that she slipped into elven in the hopes that the Ogre would not understand "Aubree you are ok with illusions also and speak giant if I recall correctly - if you can trick the giant into thinking its fellows have the sword and are leaving it should likely move to join them" she rationalised - she would do it herself but she didn't have time to cast the spell before the creature attacked again, she just hoped her friends had not mentally commited themselves to battle and would agree to escape.

    Rae doesn’t need to be told twice. She is always one to run from a fight, especially lopsided ones.

    From upstairs fighting can be heard and then a huge thud. A hand axe buries itself deep in to the back of the ogre. Old Sid's voice yells in giant I have your master's sword you stupid pile of dog dirt.

    The ogre looks at the six armed adventurers and heads upstairs.

    Aubree

    The half elf turned to dismiss Heather: he wasn't stupid but his blood was up and he wanted to prove himself. His energy blast had been weaker than he had anticipated, but he was only getting warmed up.

    It was then that Sid's voice rang from upstairs, calling the ogre away. That hadn't been Aubree's doing, but as it turned he knew it would be reckless to pursue it. Aubree turned and joined Heather at the entrance to the ramp. "Let's see what's down here I guess," he announced and leapt down to the ramp.

    The ramp plummeted down sixty feet, dust flew onto the air. Only those with dark vision see that the room is 60 feet with two corridors one on each side . Metal beds with very dusty mattress enough for ten people and ten chests.

    Level up to two

    Val gave a thought to chase the monster that ran away, but decided that discretion is the better part of valor and living to see another day, so he followed the rest of the group out and down into the catacombs below. Blind as he was in the dark, the man had no other option but to light one of his torches. "Well, where to now?"

    "What is this place?" Aubree asked, looking around. He hated to think of the destruction they'd left above, but this was a strange mystery indeed. "Who did Sid have staying here?"

    He approached one of the chests and tried to open it.

    She waited until the rest had moved down the passageway and then followed closing the door behind her, as she looked around the room, "whoever stayed here likely did it some time ago, but you are correct we should examine the chests for clues - and then pick a corridor in case Sid was bluffing and what they seek is down here- unless others disagree?", she then followed her own advise and began to search the room for anything interesting, while allowing her mind to be split on also mulling over what she knew about the history of giants in the region.

    He approached one of the chests and tried to open it.
    Inside the chest it was spotless no dust at all. Fresh blankets and sleeping bags, five two man tents, and ten water skins. The chest is much smaller than all the goods combined.

    As Aubree pulled more and more equipment from the capacious tent he realised this was odder than even he had thought. "This chest... It must be magical." He turned to the other chests around him and began to examine them to see if they too held more than they should.

    Rae picks herself off the floor, and with a look of disgust, she looks down at her clothes. She mutters a word and waves a hand in front of her in a downward sweeping motion, and the dust vanishes. She takes a quick look around and then decides quickly that the addition of color due to the torch's light illuminating the area does not improve the look of the place.

    Well. That was... interesting. Where do we go from here? Or were we meant to wait here for Sid to come get us?

    She got distracted in her own search by Aubree's comment and went over to take a look at the chest "if we had a few minutes I could have a few rituals to figure out the basis of the magic involved - more is we had a decent pearl" she looked for markings on the box "can you carry it?" she asked while still examining it.

    Responding to Rae "I suspect we are meant to go further inside and find some treasure that Sid wants to keep out of the hands of the Giants - that is I assume why he told us of all the guests to go down here, powerful enough to perhaps do a task, not powerful enough to fight ogres" she mused barely paying attention as she wondered as the magic of the box and how it could be co-opted "I could be wrong of course" she flipped topics mid sentance "if it is conjuration magic focused on summoning more space the real impact would be that it has greater storage capacity then it would otherwise have - but if you created too much space you would likely need divination to actually find anything inside it - and possibly further conjuration to ensure that the space with your sought item would be on top, this bares more research" she finished happilly seemingly having forgotten about the danger they were in for the time being.

    "Crazy is leaving all this equipment down here. What was Sid doing? Stockpiling for an attack by giants?" Aubree was only half joking at this point. But if Sid had planned for this, then it was only sensible to use the equipment they'd been left. There was plenty spare that others wouldn't go short. He donned some breastplate and switched out his smaller crossbow for one with more stopping power. It probably wouldn't match what he could conjure, but it was best to be prepared: he hadn't had his powers so long that he was yet comfortable wholly relying on them.

    Geared up he hefted the chest with the camping equipment in, to check how heavy it was, and if he could lift it, would see how much of the armour and weapons he could take.

    Basically want to know whether these chests are lighter than normal, or whether they just have extradimensional space but weigh the same. If the latter we better work out how much stuff Aubree can carry with his 18 strength - need to use it for something.

    "Let me know if anyone needs any of this equipment, otherwise I say we take this chest with us. It could come in handy."

    Aubree loads all the of the weapons, armour and camping equipment into the first chest and then hefts it easily.

    He then headed for the door on the right hand side of the room. "Let's see what else is down here."

    Wait just a moment, Rae says. She then opens the chest back up, takes out a light crossbow and one of the quivers of bolts, then shuts the trunk again.

    There. How I have something a little better than my one dagger for keeping things away.

    It was a simple choice for Val for all of the options before him--grab a new set of studded leather armor to protect him from whatever may come by. "What kind stories could this barkeep could have told us with all of this down here, I wonder... But I'm certain he didn't send us down here just for this and leave us to die, there must be another way out. If anyone can see in this dark please lead the way--I'll be right behind you."

    DIstracted by her own thought on magic and how manipulate it she barely noticed as a the others got ready to leave - but as she did she looked down the corridors "a puzzle?" she wondered as she tried to note and indications of which path they should follow.
