You continue through the opposite end of the cave into a narrow tunnel, after a minute or so Vortek emerges into another damp room, this room is haphazardly cluttered with broken beds, chairs, wagon wheels, and an assortment of worn, tattered, dingy, and broken objects pilfered or salvaged from 'big folk'. A row of bookcases stands crookedly propped against the far wall, the shelves filled with bits of bone, feathers, and dried centipede legs. Old window frames, cracked and splintered, hang upon the wall like works of fine art.
That's not all that Vortek sees, several angry mites holding rusty knives stare at the intruders and move in to attack!
