Spoiler Adventure

You've lost your pursuers for the moment. Continuing down the passage, you find yourself in a large work hall, though much of the furniture has degraded. Several anvils are still arranged in their proper places. Scamps rushes up to one of them and paws at it repeatedly. Walking over to collect the excited animal, you find that the numeral "VI" has been etched in the metal. Curious.

Shouts again! The goblins have picked up your scent. Surely it was these fiends that brought this once-mighty fortress down into ruin. Quick, you must run! There is a wide stairway carved into one of the walls.

Head down the large stairway!
