The descent is fairly easy, Missoi gets tied a bit in the old roots, but manages to go safely down after a short time, even Dog tumbles / sorta bites down hard to get towards the tunnel below. Up above, the horses have been tied up securely to the tree's trunk, leadership was relayed to either Henry or Askari.
Vortek strikes the sunrod's tip against the ground lighting the cramped tunnel, the earth is moist, the air damp and cool. The tunnel runs east to west and you can head to in both directions though everyone down there - except Skapti and Dog have to stoop over as the ceiling height is rarely over five feet high, with much of the upper foot a tangle of roots and thin stalactites.
You all proceed through the cramped tunnel heading East-ish as far as you know, you don't advance for long when you have to turn and descent through a narrow gap in the earth some of you wondering maybe why you're down here in this muddy damp and small place.
Skapti was mostly dozing off, but maybe dreaming or not his small ears catch the sound of someone gasping and small steps running off. These dice sets were omitted or moved: 1d20+9, 1d20+1, 1d20+8
