    (Of course, the Doylist reason is probably "To put the entire Corbettite story in motion", but did we get a Watsonian explanation yet?)
    I think she thought Prende's Lantern was there.

    Concur. It think the Lady was after Prende's Lantern, for reasons of her own (probably having to do with creating a Storm King with her as a power behind the throne - guessing). Once she found The Winslow where she expected the lantern, she panicked and started opening doors randomly, which is very stupid thing to do in a dungeon full of vaults containing things known to be hazardous.

    The three Dreen seem quite confident of their combat abilities, and in fact of their status in general. And confirmed (not that there was much doubt), these Dreen are the same Dreen we've seen before.

    Given that every time we've seen the Dreen before this volume, they were able to terrify just about anything, I don't doubt their abilities.

    Noted. I had also added "Heh heh. Ho ho. Hee Hee. Yes." as I think it works better without the context (and I was planning to put it in anyway).

    Considering how dangerous Thotep 'a simple vozzler' manages to be, and how the Dreen seem to be similar high-dimensional entities only with a decidedly more 'combat-ready' setup, this seems reasonable.
