OOC > Asked and answered! :) Proceeding as if Rowena has been mind wiped from our consciousness. I was all ready to mourn her death, and fully willing to role-play her disappearance, but am choosing the third path. Please let me know if I should edit!
Iroona scans the area, sure that something is off, but unable to put a finger on it. She counts party members on her fingers, then once more. Shrugging, she examines the dead orcs for treasure, interesting papers, maps, or clues to magical weapon hoards.
As Iroona starts to rummage through the stuff in here you find a lot of trade goods and staples raided from travelers and nearby settlements. As she starts to investigate further, she finds an old iron cauldron under some vermin infested bedding that contains 210 GP (that must be one thicc bed - or a very uncomfortable one at least). Tearing apart another bed reveals a large topaz and two smaller onyx stones.
"I found some treasure," Iroona says, dismissing Shatterspike with a "pop!" and dumping the coins out of the shredded mattress. She looks flushed with the exertion and a growing delight in smashing things.
"I feel like something is missing, too," she says to Von's question, and she looks around suspiciously, then shrugs. "If it's part of our story, it'll come up again. We still haven't found any magical weapons, and gold is all fine and well, but that's not what the Yeomen and I have come for."
Iroona's head comes up, like she heard a voice. "Let's retrace our steps, maybe we missed something. Or we could go destroy that statue some more..." She will head back to the common room, checking for missed passages on the way.
As you enter the orc commons once again you notice a particular pile of crates and supplies to the east that may be blocking another tunnel. It is packed tight but with some work you think you could move them out of the way.
Slate looks at the crates and then nods, "Looks like there is a tunnel behind these crates...Let me get those for you Lady Iroona" she then moves up to them and begins trying to move them out of the way.
The passage leading east is blocked about 10 feet in by tightly packed crates and sacks of flour. Removing this material allows travel for another 20 feet to the east, where the tunnel ends at an iron gate stuffed with blankets and straw pallets.
