Moving cautiously into the darkness towards the body Saslic and Banelin all too quickly find themselves at the junction. To their right the passage continues a short way before opening up into a room from where the majority of the harsh voices can be heard. The light from the distant cave entrance is too dim here to make out anything but the rough shape of the room. It sounds like more than two Orcs but it's hard to tell.
A few raised voices that can be heard through the little alcove where the dead Orc rests indicates that there might be a second similar room a bit further around the corner. Off to the west the tunnel opens up but the darkness there is too solid to make anything else out though there does seem to be some light coming from a source in that room further to the south and out of sight. No sound can be heard from that direction.
The whole area stinks of Orc though the stench of the decaying heads on the nearby wall masks some of it.
